Encore! Music & Mobsters
June 14—June 15, 2013
Join us as we travel to St. Paul for an exciting weekend! The highlight of our trip includes the performance of Buddy – The Buddy Holly Story. This musical tells the tale of the three years in which Holly became the world’s top recording artist before dying tragically in a plane crash.
This foot-stomping, heart-pounding show features more than 20 of Holly’s greatest hits including: Peggy Sue, That’ll Be The Day, Oh Boy, Not Fade Away, Everyday, Rave On, Maybe Baby, Raining In My Heart, Ritchie Valens’ La Bamba, and the Big Bopper’s Chantilly Lace. The incredible legacy of the young man with glasses, whose musical career spanned an all-too-brief period during the golden days of rock ‘n’ roll, continues to live on in this performance. Prior to the performance on Friday you’ll enjoy an exceptional dinner at the Woodfire Grill. We will conclude our night with a stay at the DoubleTree in downtown St. Paul.
Saturday morning you’ll experience the famous St. Paul Gangster Tour. During this bus tour we’ll explore the sites of nightclubs, kidnappings, and gun battles associated with the 1930s gangsters like John Dillinger, Ma Barker and Babyface Nelson. See the sights where the gangsters lived it up as they planned and executed some of the most notorious crimes ever perpetrated in the upper Midwest. Our guide will take us past the most infamous gangster hideouts and the famous nightclubs where many gangsters spent time socializing with the public. Following the tour, you’ll have free time for lunch and shopping at the Mall of America before returning to Sioux Falls.
