WABASH â€” Thank God we have a quest, and that quest will include laughter as the award winning Broadway musical â€śSpamalotâ€ť comes to the Wabash Honeywell Centerâ€™s Ford Theater Saturday, Feb. 4 at 7:30 p.m.
The show borrows liberally and unashamedly from the classic film â€śMonty Python and the Holy Grailâ€ť and features characters and sketches from the internationally acclaimed comedy teamâ€™s most famous film. With a book and lyrics by Monty Pythonâ€™s Eric Idle and music by John Du Prez the musical tells the tale of King Arthur and his â€” rather offbeat â€” quest for the Holy Grail.
SOUTH BEND â€”Â Snoop Dogg returns to Club Fever in South Bend for a Wednesday Feb. 1 show at 9 p.m. Doors will open at 6 p.m. Snoopâ€™s debut South Bend show there in January of 2011 sold out the first day of ticket sales.
Born Calvin Broadus Jr. in Long Beach, Calif., Snoop is a rapper, singer, record producer, entertainer and actor. His debut album â€śDoggystyleâ€ť was released in 1993 and featured the songs â€śGin & Juiceâ€ť and â€śWhatâ€™s My Name.â€ť
GOSHEN â€” Country singer and songwriter Suzy Bogguss may be known for her musical stylings in hits like â€śOutbound Planeâ€ť and â€śAces,â€ť but she also has another talent.
â€śI yodel â€” thatâ€™s kind of my parlor trick,â€ť confessed Bogguss.
The 1992 CMA award winner will be visiting Goshen Feb. 2 as part of a tour promoting her recent album, American Folk Songbook. Bogguss said she decided to â€ślightheartedlyâ€ť record some Americana style music she remembered from her childhood.

PLYMOUTH â€” Whatâ€™s better after a long work week than some music and a beer? This was the conclusion Mike Music, bass guitarist, and Jared Beer, vocalist, came to in 2008 when they decided to form a cover band.
Promptly, drummer Bryan Hagan was stirred into the mix with his close friend, and guitarist, Adam Ockerman in tow. Inspiration, fueled by determined ambition, generated a reality and they deemed it Subtle Fall.
