Hank Fitzgerald, SunnySide featured at tonight’s Radio Hour
The November River City Radio Hour will complete the Night Hawk serial in style with performances by the Sunny Side Family Band and singer Hank Fitzgerald. The November Radio Hour is at 6:30 p.m. and 8 p.m. tonight at the Gateway in Downtown Waynesboro.
A native of Waynesboro, singer and actor Hank Fitzgerald has been performing in professional and regional theater for over 20 years. He attended Shenandoah University and performed five seasons in their professional company, Shenandoah Summer Music Theatre. Hank went on to portray the role of Aladdin in the Disney Cruise Line show, Magic Journeys and appeared in numerous shows at the acclaimed Alhambra Dinner Theater in Jacksonville, Fla.
SunnySide began in September 2007, playing their first gig at Humpback Rocks Old Settlers Museum on the Blue Ridge Parkway. They spent the summer and fall of 2011 playing at Big Meadows Lodge and Skyland Resort. Their passions and dedication to the old-time mountain music is evident in the harmony of beautiful sound the trio produces. They do more than just play their acoustic instruments and sing words. They strum each note with the heart of the natives; they sing each story through the eyes of its past, and they live each moment through the spirit of the mountains. As their fans say, “SunnySide brings the mountain sound to your ears.”
Bob Crawford’s latest serial, Night Hawk and Murder down on the Farm, will finish its mayhem at the November Radio Hour. While Night Hawk (Bob Lunger), the self-anointed detective, investigated the murder of the farm worker, he found himself thrown in with a gigantic bull, driven into a pond full of snapping turtles, and menaced by the brawny brothers of his latest romance interest. In the surprising conclusion of the serial, Night Hawk discovers the real story of Murder down on the Farm.
The November Radio Hour also features the ever-popular Boogie Kings led by Richard Adams with William Hayes and J. T. Fauber. Back from the farm, the country count of comedy Irv Beadles will serve up a new set of jokes.
The merchant of the month is Jeff Grosfeld of Ann Arden and Under the Roof Furnishing.
Tickets for the Radio Hour are $10 and are available online at www.WaynesboroGateway.com or at the box office.
