“Wulfe Bros” and “Louisville Crashers” presented by Mizkan

You’ll find “The Wulfe Bros.” right on the corner of “Dance Blvd” and “Fun Lane”. They are high-energy, professional entertainers with many years of experience and it’s a show you and your feet won’t want to miss.  Three musicians, each with distinctive vocal talents capable of singing lead or harmony bring the great songs and fun to the Jagoe MIZKAN LOGOHomes patio stage tonight. Their instrumental ability allows them to adapt to their surroundings with a full, complete sound. The Wulfe Bros. are a diverse combination of music, fun and excitement. Their ability to deliver the right style of entertainment at just the right moment, sets them apart from “just another band.” It’s all made possible by Mizkan, the people who make Bertolli and Ragu sauces right here in Owensboro.  One hundred and fifty semi-trucks filled with goodness leave every day.  Thanks Mizkan, Ragu and Bertolli.  Tonight’s show: 6:30pm-10:00pm
