Join the boys of Forever Plaid on a humorous ‘heavenly’ journey through some of the greatest close-harmony songs of the 50’s. With one final chance to give the concert they never gave, The Plaids sing nostalgic hits “Rags To Riches”, “Love is a Many Splendored Thing”, “Catch A Falling Star”, “Three Coins In A Fountain” and many more – all in glorious harmony with patter that will keep any audience rolling in the aisles.
An entertaining musical mix of 1950’s and 1960’s rock n’ roll, and popular show and dance tunes, blended with witty comedy has continued to delight audiences in cities across the nation. Forever Plaid is a charming story of four young men who are killed in an automobile accident, and then through a chain of bizarre events, get one last opportunity to entertain – proving that their spirits still live on.
