Dazzling Dave

Visit the Dazzling Dave web site

 

See a performance by Dazzling Dave and you might start believing his yo-yos are alive. Dazzling Dave Schulte is a professional yo-yo performer and highly acclaimed champion who has circled the globe since 1998, storming audiences everywhere with his freakish tornado of whirling tricks and tips, all designed to entertain, educate, and illuminate the beauty of the growing sport of professional yo-yo. A former middle school teacher, Dave’s heart and soul are still in teaching – and now he’s found a better way. By giving hands-on instruction on the world’s oldest and coolest toys, the yo-yo. While Dave is teaching yo-yo tricks, his “students” are learning them, and much more...hand-eye coordination, goal setting, & performance techniques. Every American generation since the early 1930’s has loved the yo-yo, so much so that it was named the "Toy of the Century" by the A&E Television Network.

Show times: TBA

Monroe Crossing

Visit the Monroe Crossing web site

 


 

Celebrating their 14th year together in 2014, Monroe Crossing dazzles audiences with an electrifying blend of classic bluegrass, bluegrass gospel, and heartfelt originals. Their airtight harmonies, razor sharp arrangements, and on-stage rapport make them audience favorites across the United States and Canada.

Named in honor of Bill Monroe, “The Father of Bluegrass Music,” and based in Minnesota, the group plays an average of 125 shows a year at major venues and festivals, frequently for non-bluegrass audiences.

Monroe Crossing is made up of five very distinct personalities with differing musical backgrounds and tastes, combining for a very unique ensemble sound. Their paths crossed through the music of Bill Monroe so they like to say they had a “Monroe Crossing.”

February 2013 marked an important milestone for the group as they made their New York City debut on the stage of Carnegie Hall; they’ve already been invited back to perform there in 2014!

Among their many honors, they were inducted into the Minnesota Music Hall of Fame in 2007.
