This time of year can be pretty dreary, I'll admit.  So I think we could all use a little pick me up, and nothing quite does the trick for me like live music.  

Here in Sedalia, Helen Russell and Company are bringing a bit of Branson to Sedalia's VFW. They will have a performance on Feb. 8, bringing jokes, country music, bluegrass and rock music. The dinner will be from 5:00 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. at a cost of $5 a plate.  The dinner will consist of a choice of brisket or pork loin, scalloped potatoes, corn or green beans, salad and a roll.  The show is from 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. and the cost of the show is $7 a ticket.  Cost of the dinner and the show is $12.  This is a non-smoking event.

Luehrman, Shaffer and Check will perform a benefit concert for the Regional Health Care Clinic of Johnson County at Players Restaurant. The concert will begin at 7:00 p.m. Tickets are $10 and may be purchased at the door.  Groups wishing to purchase a table of tickets in advance may contact Liz at 660-747-6013.

So be sure to attend and get some of those winter blues out of your system!

Musically yours,
