Roland and I love walking downtown and it is especially exciting as we witness the rebirth of the city center. As more people venture out of their subdivisions, gated neighborhoods, foothill’s homes, and outlying communities they come to realize that downtown Tucson is a fun place to eat, drink, be merry and come together as a community. Recently two of our Carnival show guests treated us to an evening of bluegrass, comedy and camaraderie. We spent an evening of wonder enjoying the antics and banjo chops of The Steep Canyon Rangers with Steve Martin… Yes, that Steve Martin, the movie star, comedian and amazing magician, AKA “The Great Flydini”. What better place to see this sold out show but in the heart of Tucson at the historical Fox Theatre?!
We sat in the balcony “love seat” section which was remarkable; not only is it romantic with a great view of the stage, but you get to marvel at the tremendous ceiling ornamentation reminiscent of the late 1920’s. Our Fox Theatre is beautiful and great care was taken to restore this downtown treasure. Next month we’ll return to the FOX, this time in the SECOND ROW on Friday, September 23rd to experience the lovely and legendary EmmyLou Harris. Get your tickets now before it sells out. See you there!

Yes, we have worked the Fox Theatre. In 2010 we were the leading act in a Variety Show. Here is a rare peek backstage on the way to our dressing rooms. We’re out of our costumes but in our stage eyebrows!

Here’s the YouTube video of Steve Martin’s clever “Flydini” magic act he did on Johnny Carson’s Tonight Show, ENJOY!
