Van Wezel schedule for 06 - 07

Van Wezel performing arts has posted their schedule for the up-coming 2006-2007 year. It looks like a 'can't miss' season.

In looking over the schedule I noticed the Smothers Brothers are booked. Tom Smothers lives in Sarasota. I had the pleasure of meeting him casually and he is a great guy. Of course his show is as great as ever.
