October 15
Voice Male

7:30 pm – Doors Open 7:00 pm
Tickets: $10

Voice Male is comprised of 6 unique individuals who somehow found each other over 18 years ago. John Luthy came up with the Voice Male concept while singing with some of the guys in the Logan LDS
Institute Choir. Initially it took nine of them to cover all the parts, but a couple of years later they decided they no longer needed the nose flute player, the cowbell ringer, and the guy who claps,
so they trimmed themselves down to just 6. Actually, some members had to move on and be grown-ups, so they decided to give it a go with just 6.
Over the years, they have had some pretty cool
opportunities to sing in exotic locations (San Pete County) and for some pretty great people (their moms). Considering this is not their day job, they are lucky to pull together and accomplish
anything at this point. They all graduated into careers ranging from Computer Networking (Nerd) to Real Estate to Law. When they are not working or singing, they are enjoying time with their
supportive wives and children. The latest tally: 23 children who like to call each other Voice Male Cousins. As families grow, hair thins, and hips break, they hope to keep chuggin’ along.
As long as you’ll keep listening, they’ll keep singing.

Tickets available ONLY through these locations:
Any Lions Club member or at the door.

Blaze & Kelly
7:30 pm – Tickets $10

To listen to Blaze and Kelly is to experience a musical nirvana. Their art takes the listener beyond the realm of the temporal, and into those intangible places we call spirit, dreams, and love.
There’s no doubt these two laughter-loving women can sing—Niccole’s powerful lead vocals blend perfectly with Mo’s sweet tone. But what makes them true artists is their ability to create emotion.
To Blaze and Kelly, it’s not money, fame, or precision that creates happiness, but genuine human connection. And their songs illustrate the humanity, passion, and truth each one of us strives to
feel and find gladness in.

Their songs range from the serious to the hilarious. But no matter what words have flowed from Niccole’s pen, each song resonates with those beautiful human emotions. From the love of a child,
“Lena’s Lullaby,” to the recognition we’ve out-waisted our clothes, “Fat Pants,” to the intrepid journey named death, “Mama,” the listener has no choice but to feel connected to the music.
Each person finds a little of herself or himself in every song.
