Banks & Shane’s Georgia Stage will take to the stage at The Plaza Arts Center in downtown Eatonton for the inaugural performance of what they hope will be many more variety entertainment shows. Banks & Shane is a high-energy band that has had adults and youth alike all over the world dancing in the aisles for over 35 years!
For Friday, July 22nd’s show they’ll share the stage with Grammy nominated artists The Claire Lynch Band and Nashville’s 2009 Chris Austin Songwriting Award Winner Wendy Newcomer. The evening will be a throwback to variety show classics like “The Glen Campbell Good Time Hour” and “The Smothers Brother Comedy Hour.”
We’re super lucky to have tons of musical acts come to us here at Lake Oconee but Banks & Shane hope to add a new element to entertainment by blending musical guests and comedians all in variety show formats. This new format allows them to present exciting guests artists, who alongside Banks & Shane, will provide a unique evening of fun all with a touch of southern hospitality. I spoke with the show’s Producer, Rick Gould, about this special event.
“This is about the creation of a new entertainment concept that we hope will become “iconic” for the State of Georgia and for the venues who host these concerts,” Rick said.
