Went and saw Blue Man Group last night, at the Overture Center, for the first time. What an amazing show. They kept the audiance engaged for the entire show. If you haven’t seen these guys you have to go. I see that they are also opening a new show at Universal Studios in Orlando in February.
I loved it when they started to go out into the audience. We have seats at the end of the 6th row, and I ended up looking one of them in the face for a minute and then he had his hand on my head as he looked around the room. Never realized that they had a camera on stage following guys so I was on the big screen also.
The finale was amazing when they toss the lighted balls out into the audience and everyone is tossing them around, then they shoot toilet paper into the air, srteamers come down from the ceiling and big tubes of fabric are blowing over the audience. When they light go out they arsk that you please gently return their balls to the stage.
There are still tickets available for the show at Overture Center in Madison. If you ever have a chance to see Blue Man Group go and see them, you’ll enjoy it I’m sure.
Don’t forget that the Overture Center is only 22 minutes from Naeset-Roe Inn and after a restful nights sleep you’ll get a fabulous breakfast to start your day.

Tony Rice Unit

About Tony Rice Unit
We’re willing to bet that most flatpickers remember the first time they heard Tony Rice play their reaction was similar to ours — a mouth opened in astonishment. Such power, tone, timing, and fluidity coming from one acoustic guitar, thus the reason for asking him to return to the Opera House. Even today, after hearing countless great flatpickers, there’s still something about Tony Rice’s playing that sets him apart. Tony Rice spans the range of acoustic music, from straight-ahead bluegrass to jazz-influenced new acoustic music, to songwriter-oriented folk. Over the course of his career, he has played alongside J.D. Crowe and the New South, David Grisman, led his own groups, collaborated with fellow picker Norman Blake, Peter Rowan and recorded with his brothers. With grace, technical skill, and exquisite taste and timing, Rice is still growing. The Current Tony Rice Unit line-up: Tony and Wyatt Rice, guitars; Rickie Simpkins, fiddle; Josh Williams, mandolin; Bryn Davies, bass (more…)

The first members of the original Madison Brass Band, founded in 1863, were businessmen, cobblers, cigar-makers, stone-cutters, and a saloon proprietor. Only one member was a professional musician. The band went into remission for many years until the early 2000’s when it revitalized its mission to bring the great British and American brass band tradition back to the greater Madison area. In addition to concerts, festivals and many events in southern Wisconsin, MBB has also performed twice at the Grand Celebration of Brass Bands in Iowa. (more…)
The meticulously restored Stoughton Opera House is one of Wisconsin’s premiere live music theaters.
After a holiday respit the Opera House comes to life again with Pro Arte Quartet on January 23rd.
The Pro Arte Quartet has enjoyed a long and distinguished career as one of the most enduring string quartets in existence. Founded in Brussels in 1912 by violinist Alphonse Annou and violist Germain Prevost, the Pro Arte became the court quartet to Queen Elisabeth of Belgium. Its world reputation soared with a European tour in 1919, earning the group such outstanding acclaim that many composers – including Bartok, Milhaud, and Honegger – composed new works for the Pro Arte. In 1940, stranded in the United States by the outbreak of World War II, the University of Wisconsin-Madison offered the Quartet the position of Artist-in-Residence, which continues to the present day.
Current members, David Perry and Suzanne Beia, violins, Sally Chisholm, viola, and Parry Karp, cello, have continued the Pro Arte legacy.
“The Pro Arte Quartet plays all very demanding music with perfect sympathy and superb musicianship…” (American Record Guide)
