Gags, gusto and far more than simple guitar riffs mark New Odyssey's unique stage show, which comes to Delta Saturday, April 29, 7:30 p.m. at the Delta Performing Arts Center, 822 Grand Avenue, under the auspices of the Delta-Montrose Community Concert Association.
Three guys wield 30 instruments and combine their individual virtuosity to form a raucous production featuring comedy, skits and audience participation. Once it gets going they start putting on costumes and getting people on stage. Gary, Michael and Gary, the men of New Odyssey, are a power-packed team with eclectic backgrounds ranging in areas of musical theatre to acrobatics. They play a lot of oldies that people know during their family-friendly, energetic performance. Their comedic stunts take their performances far beyond the basics of a traditional concert, and their music-oriented skits add a dose of zaniness. One even dresses up as Elvis. Audience members can join in on the antics and get a chance to perform along with the music, honking horns or donning silly costumes.
New Odyssey will simply mesmerize you. Classic rock, country, novelty and specialty arrangements are the calling card of this must-see concert. This is the most unique act on any stage, anywhere!
Single admission tickets will be available at the door for $20/adults or $5/students. However, the concert is free if a 2017-2018 season ticket is purchased for $40/adults, $15/students or $85/family.
Doors open at 6:30 p.m. For further information please contact Bob Brown, 970-835-4480 or Connie Pittenger, 970-249-4308. Visit www.deltamontroseconcerts.com for more information on the 2017-2018 concert season.
