Kids From Wisconsin Present THE BEAT GOES ON
At 7:00 p.m., Monday, July 15, the 2019 Kids From Wisconsin will take the stage at the Performing Arts Center of Wisconsin Rapids. After 50 years of entertaining audiences across Wisconsin and beyond, the Kids beat is stronger than ever. This 51st season features music and artists that have stood the test of time.
Living legends such as Billy Joel, Tina Turner, and Cher, just to name a few, along with music that is both traditional, award-winning, and notorious, will get audiences on their feet. Music from some super all-stars such as Queen and Gershwin will keep them wanting more! The songs of today that are featured have beats with lasting power that captivate younger dreamers and "wannabes" in the audience.
The iconic sound of the Kids band will wow you with some winning tunes from all-time rockers such as the Doobie Brothers, Festival Di Ritmo, some favorite Super heroes, and more. These band features will get toes tapping to some of rock's greatest guitar riffs and percussive Latin beats.
The classic Broadway medley brings to life some of the best-known, beat-filled Broadway tunes.
This year's talented Hometown Kids hail from as far north as Eagle River, west to River Falls, east to Kohler, and as far south as Salem! And Central Wisconsin is proud to have representation from Port Edwards with Megan Shields, a singer/dancer.
