3 Redneck Tenors to Perform at Aurora's Paramount Theatre, 5/16
The "infamous" 3 Redneck Tenors are back with a brand new show in 2014. Recalling the wild tale of how they became the singing sensations they are today, they take us on a rollicking gallop from babies, to jail bait, to theatrical auditions and on to the operatic stage.
For one night only, catch this unique musical trio at the Paramount Theatre, 23 E. Galena Blvd. in downtown Aurora, Friday, May 16 at 8 p.m. Tickets are $40. For tickets and information, call the Paramount box office, 630.896.6666, or visit ParamountAurora.com.
The 3 Redneck Tenors are a multiple-NASCAR pileup of highbrow and lowbrow, combining the chicken-fried culture of the Deep South with the virtuoso vocalizations of classical music and opera. Billy Joe, Billy Bob and Billy Billee may just be a trio of good ol' boys, but they can hit the high notes as easily as they can chug down a six pack of light beer. Follow their adventures from the family hog pen to Carnegie Hall, as the whole world discovers the amazing voices within the muddy overalls.
Before donning their mullet wigs, the 3 Redneck Tenors were finalists on America's Got Talent, and Broadway and opera stars in their own respects. The show was written and directed by opera-veteran Matthew Lord (Billy Billee), and the music was arranged by the award-winning composer Craig Bohmler. The resulting music consists of genre mash-ups like "Ave Maria Dixie," as well as songs that exemplify both ends of the spectrum, like "Viva Las Vegas" and "Nessun Dorma."
