Home front – Jan. 12


Two country music singers will get things shaking and moving during the Paint the Town Red Cabaret at Lacombe Memorial Centre on Saturday Jan. 21. Jaydee Bixby, Red Deer hometown boy and former runner-up of the Canadian Idol television series, and special guest Tera Lee, nominated for the 2004 Canadian Country Music Association’s Rising Star of the Year Award, will perform at the special cabaret.

Doors open at 6:30 p.m. with the concert to follow at 7:30 p.m. People will have the chance to dance, take part in a two-step competition, plus a deejay will be on hand. The event runs until 2 a.m. Gourmet hot dogs and other food, plus a bar, will be featured. Tickets are $25 in advance.
