Rock around the Christmas tree at LuCille Tack Center for the Arts
For Hub City Times
SPENCER — To help everyone get into the Christmas spirit, LuCille Tack Center for the Arts (LTCA) will be hosting “Christmas with the Nelsons,” an evening with Matthew and Gunnar Nelson, on Sunday, Dec. 13, at 3 p.m.
This heartwarming concert stars the third generation of Ozzie and Harriet’s famous family. Ricky Nelson’s twin sons, now with children of their own, will share the music of their father and stories of Nelson family holidays in a touching, intimate atmosphere. Interweaving Smothers Brothers humor, soaring sibling vocals reminiscent of the Everly Brothers, and big screen video, Matthew and Gunnar’s new show will take you on a sleigh ride through time.
Upon hearing Gunnar and Matthew showcase their production at an Arts Midwest booking conference, LTCA Executive Director Deborah Janz and LTCA Board of Directors members Diane Veale and Theresa Schauer knew the duo was perfect for the Tack Center stage.
Janz said, “The values and stories of the Nelson family will prompt us to reflect on what makes our own family holiday traditions cherished and vibrant, and the music will take us back to years gone by.”
Reserved seat tickets ($28) for this holiday treat can be purchased online at lucilletackcenter.com with PayPal, by calling the box office at 715-659-4499, or in person at 300 School St. in Spencer. The LuCille Tack Center for the Arts box office is open Wednesdays and Fridays from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m.
