ANOTHER WELK CONCERT EXCLUSIVE FROM THE WEBMASTER
|It's been about two months since Forever Blowing Bubbles, but yours truly....the Internet's favorite webmaster was on his way to yet another Welk concert, destination Soaring Eagle Casino & Resort in Mt. Pleasant, Michigan to see Guy & Ralna in concert!
After a really long three and a half hour drive north from Toledo thru scenic Detroit, Flint, Saginaw & Midland...I arrived at the casino and went ahead to its' Entertainment Hall for the show. It started a little past four o' clock with both Guy Hovis and Ralna English coming out with their "signature" song Tangerine which was good. The concert, which lasted for a good one hour and a half, showed both the versitile talents of these two. Guy showed off his talents both vocal and on the guitar, singing songs like "Let The Eagle Soar" and did his impressions of stars like Elvis Presley, Jim Nabors, Hank Williams and Glen Campbell which I admit was very good and dead on!
As always, Ralna was very good with songs like "You'll Never Know" and "Wind Beneath My Wings" and updated everyone in the concert hall on the happenings of her daughter Julie plus shared memories from being on the Lawrence Welk Show
When they were together, they dazzled the audience with a variety of songs, from big band fare, to gospel, country and novelty tunes like the "Lawrence Welk Hee Haw Counter-Revoultionary Polka" and that was also exciting to hear.
They concluded the show with "God Bless America" which was a patriotic and fitting way to end the show. Then it was time for autographs and a chat at the autograph table, this was the first time I met Guy in person, and he was very nice to talk to. It was also a pleasure to meet Ralna again, had my pictures taken and a few things signed as well....all in all, it was a wunnerful show.
