Age Restrictions: All ages welcome

After witnessing her mother Lori go through the struggles of Breast Cancer, 27 year old first-time filmmaker and North Dakota native Emily Gerhardson knew she needed to make a documentary discussing the continued effects cancer can have on one’s life focussing specifically beyond the treatments. Now, having premiered at private screenings in 6 countries at 16 film festivals winning 13 awards and 4 nominations, the film will premiere to the public for the first time in her hometown of Fargo. Emily felt the film needed to be based where she grew up, so all those featured in the film are connected to the Fargo and surrounding region, some of whom we’ve sadly lost.

“Part Of Me Now: Living With Breast Cancer” will be playing 6 screenings on Sunday, October 1st at The Historic Fargo Theatre in North Dakota to kick off the start of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Emily Gerhardson (Director, Producer, Editor) will be in attendance as well as holding a Q&A and Meet & Greet immediately following each viewing of the film. Admission is free. Donations will be accepted at the screening. Since Day One, 100% of any and all money received for the film has and will be donated to Downtown Fargo’s Sanford Health Roger Maris Cancer Center’s Cancer Survivorship Program to assist those who’ve gone through cancer as well as their friends and family.

Group rates available

Age Restrictions: All ages

It’s a clap along, sing along musical comedy show where the audience is always a part of the action. And no one does it better than Dave & Ted, Deuces Wild. You don’t want to miss this show!

Son of a miner from the northern woods of Minnesota, David Charles Eichholz is a versatile, self-taught musician who plays the piano, guitar, saxophone, harmonica, trumpet and countless other instruments. David was also part of the “Pringles” Award winning band “City Pretty” as well as the band “Rave On!”. He was featured internationally on the Swedish television show ‘Christine’. He was then recruited by Little Ditty’s, Dueling Piano Bar at the Mall of America in Minnesota where he performed four nights each week for five years. David also recorded and produced the sound track to the “Prime Target” video game (50,000+ copies sold). He was also featured in an issue of WorldTraveler Magazine, the in-flight publication of Northwest Airlines.

Ted got his start in Deuces Wild by walking out of his day-job and demanding an audition. Although he hadn’t previously played in a dueling piano style show, his amazing showmanship and obvious ability to perform as a world class entertainer blew away the competition! Since then he has played thousands of dueling piano shows with performances all over the country! When not on the road with DWDP, Ted spends his time as a producer of sold out shows, including the Billy Joel and Elton John tribute show “Eye 2 Eye,” and the ever popular annual “Rock n Roll Xmas Spectacular,” which he co-produces with former Jonny Lang guitarist Paul Diethelm. Ted also spends time in the studio as jingle writer, recording artist, and producer of both his first CD “Gather Us In,” and his Rock and Roll Xmas CD, “Trim My Tree.” and “RRXS – Live at The Paramount” CD. He’s been an actor and a game show host! Whether it be in front of thousands of people opening for HBO’s Dennis Miller, or selling out theaters with Deuces Wild nationwide…Ted has consistently proven that he truly is a showman’s showman and musician’s musician!

Time: 8pm show, 7pm doors

Admission: $30-$40 +fees

Age Restrictions: all ages

Tiffany’s iconic number one hit single I Think We’re Alone Now captured the heart of a nation and catapulted her to pop superstardom. The singer and songwriter’s new full-length album A Million Miles debuts on March 31, 2016. Tiffany has teamed with the cutting edge entertainment platform Pledge Music, which allows her fans a unique and personal look into the creation of the album. She is so impressed with Pledge and how easy it is for her to share things with her fans like behind the scenes content, offer pre-orders of the album, exclusive updates, and limited edition merchandise. A Million Miles marks the first time Tiffany has been a co-producer on her own record. The ten-song set is available for pre-order on PledgeMusic.com

The legendary pop star has earned two number one hit singles I Think We’re Alone Now and Could’ve Been, and set a record as the youngest female artist to top the Billboard charts with her debut album. In 2000 Billboard Magazine described Tiffany’s album The Color of Silence as “thoughtful, intelligent, and full of grace” and ranked it among the “Top Ten Best Albums of the Year”. She has sold over 15 million albums to date.

Tiffany has guest stared on reality TV shows such as Food Network’s Rachael Ray VS.

THE NITTY GRITTY DIRT BAND

Date: Sun., October 22nd, 2017

Time: 8pm show, 7pm doors

Admission: $42.50 +fees

Age Restrictions: all ages welcome

Long before Americana music had a name, the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band helped lead the charge, mixing elements of country, bluegrass, folk, mountain music, and rock & roll into a sound that celebrated the full range of American music. The guys were traditionalists and trendsetters, performing songs that nodded to the past while still pushing toward the future. Released in 1972 – just six years after the group formed in Southern California – Nitty Gritty Dirt Band’s Will the Circle Be Unbroken still stands as one of the most beloved albums in the country catalog, pairing the young band with legends like Roy Acuff, Doc Watson, Earl Scruggs, and Mother Maybelle Carter.

Many decades have passed since that milestone album’s release, with the members of the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band now enjoying their own legendary status. They continue to blur lines between genres, however, and Circlin’ Back accomplishes something very similar to the classic Will the Circle Be Unbroken, pairing the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band with the hit-makers, rule-breakers, and iconic figures of today’s roots music community. This time, Hanna, Fadden, Carpenter, and McEuen are the elder statesmen, passing down their influence and inspiration to a younger class without giving up the torch just yet. There’s more music to be made, after all. More shows to play. Another half-century to chase down. The circle rolls on.
