Annual Land of the Sky Chorus show for Father’s Day

Press release from Land of the Sky Chorus:

“WHAT ABOUT DAD??” For years the 3rd Sunday in June is set aside as Father’s Day. Dads are special and a huge part of who we are. How do we honor them?

Just think how many gifts, notes, poems, hugs and kisses have been tossed to our Dads over the years on Father’s Day. But admit it; Mother’s Day has always been a bigger deal. That’s good but “WHAT ABOUT DAD??”

On father’s day EVE, Saturday, June 15th, the Land of the Sky Chorus will present a musical and comedic program we call “What About Dad??” Help us even up the score a little. Now is your chance to do something unusual and special to celebrate and honor your guy, be he current, prospective or remembered.

Funny songs, sentimental songs, stories and anecdotes about Dads and families will delight and entertain. You’ll laugh, you’ll sigh and you’ll tap your feet. In addition to the “Land of the Sky Barbershop Chorus”, performers will include “Boardwalk”, an internationally known comedy quartet from Atlanta, “ShBoom” our regional kings of doo-wop, “Acapella Brewing”, a mixed sextet bringing you modern tight harmony acapella; There’s a hot new quartet, “Just In Time”, and a well known story teller on top of all the rest. Our MC will be Tami Ruckman, Director of Development with Eliada Homes whose father was a long term fanatical Barbershopper.

How many loud ties, barbeque utensils, sweaters that almost fit, funny coffee mugs, pithy refrigerator magnets, cordless drills, music albums, games, and gift certificates has Dad received over the years. This year give him something really special and bring him and your whole family to “WHAT ABOUT DAD???”

Asheville High School Auditorium is the place. Parking is free. Further information and tickets can be obtained online at or “Land of the Sky Chorus” on Facebook: $5 for students, free for under 6yo and $15 for the rest of us.
