Riverbend Revue Fundraiser – 7pm – July 13 at Riverbend Farms!

Riverbend Revue – a night of music and comedy at Riverbend Farm at 7 pm, plus rootbeer or pop floats and a special gift of samples from a local brewery.

The District 24 Democratic-NPL is hosting a fundraiser for our local candidates:  Larry Robinson running for State Senate, Naomi Muscha and Bradley Edin running for the two State House seats.

Jenni Lou Russi  is a professional stand-up comedian who is chair of the Department of Communication Arts at VCSU.  She appeals to a wide audience and her comedy credits include working as house emcee at comedy clubs, tours throughout the Lower 48 and corporate engagements. 

Spencer Dobson has performed in clubs, at comedy festivals, private functions and prisons all over the US and Canada. Comedy has taken Spencer from one corner of the continent to the other, cutting his comedy teeth in Minneapolis and then moving to Los Angeles to follow his dreams.  He’s now taken up residence in Valley City.

Joe DeMasi performs solo and also with his twin brother John (when COVID is not happening). He hails from New York City where he began his career playing guitar and singing in folk clubs and coffeehouses.  He and his brother have played at Greenwich Village famed music clubs.  He moved to Valley City a number of years ago, and continues to do folk music tours around the USA. 

To be safe in this time of COVID-19 people are invited to watch the performers from their car or bring a lawn chair to sit on the grass, remembering social distancing of six feet.  Masks are recommended if you choose to go outside your car.
