Chuck Cahoe is Playing!

Thorn Hill Vineyards | website | Lancaster, false 17601 event website

Solo artist Chuck Cahoe has been a prominent full-time performer [musician] for twenty-five plus years. His success has been vocal versatility, energy, professionalism, audience appeal, and exceptionally precise rhythmic interpretations. Chuck has an uncanny ability to emulate nearly all vocal styles and ranges, from smooth to rough, low to high, powerful to soft, and from the most masculine to a few female covers. His vocal covers, of even the most difficult performances, are unsurpassed. His guitar work is polished and rhythmically right on the money.

The number one focus is FUN. He loves the stage, he loves people, and that shines through in each and every performance. "Every song is a sing along and there's no such thing as too much FUN."

Concert experience includes: OPENING ACT for: Lonestar, The Hooters, Robert Klein, Badfinger, Pam Tillis, Ray Charles, Marty Stuart and more...

You may know Chuck as front man (lead singer) for a popular local band: Burning House (1996-2

Mary Poppins Jr

Ephrata Performing Arts Center | Ephrata, false 17522

This year’s Kids4Kids show is a beloved classic: Disney and Cameron Mackintosh’s Mary Poppins Jr. In 1910 England, the most essential fixture in any family’s home is the nanny, but with kids like Jane and Michael, the Banks family just can’t seem to keep one! That is until the practically perfect Mary Poppins drops in. She’ll need more than just a “spoonful of sugar” to help this family take a dose of common sense. She’ll also need a fair bit of magic and help from the loveable Bert, who is far more than just a chimney sweep.
