HALE – “They’re very, very entertaining,” says Debbie Rogers of The Cronies & Les-Egos Band, who will be performing this Saturday, Sept. 25, at American Legion Post 422 of Hale.
Rogers, who is president of the Legion’s auxiliary, says there is no cover charge for the show. Attendees don’t have to be members of the Legion, either, as the event is open to the public.
For the duration of the evening, organizers will be selling hamburgers and cheeseburgers, starting at 5 p.m., and there will also be drinks available. The Cronies & Les-Egos Band are scheduled to play from 6-10 p.m.
The venue is located at 429 W. Main St., which is one block west of the traffic light in downtown Hale.
Rogers, who has watched the band perform at the Hale Fraternal Order of Eagles, says that attendees can expect a great show.
In fact, the group has already been slated to return next September, for the End of Summer Bash which is being planned.
According to Rogers, the band will present several different acts this Saturday and showcase not only a range of musical genres, but will also appear in costume/character to match the various themes of their acts.
For example, the crowd may see the group’s soulful side while dressed as The Blues Brothers; witness their country and western style; get on their feet for the rock star-themed portion of the show; or kick back to some smooth sounds along the lines of The Beach Boys and Jimmy Buffet.
Among the band’s list of assorted influences, are everything from Willie Nelson, Chris Stapleton, Chuck Berry, The Beatles and Bad Company, to Santana, Grand Funk Railroad, The Eagles, Tom Petty, Poison and The Romantics.
“They really are fun,” Rogers commented, reiterating that all are welcome to come out for the evening entertainment this weekend.
