P��� 44 ���.D�����M��������.��� QMusic in RON AND OPAL ERICKSON Ron and Opal Erickson from Branson, MO will once again be here in Quartzsite for just a few dates in January. This year they promise to have an all new and exciting show, in addition to their gospel concerts. Last year they added Greg Jones from Okla- homa on the keyboard, guitar and vocals to their show. Greg is an outstanding vocalist who sings any part, as well as his own so- los. He ranges from Cowboy to Broadway, & Tumbleweeds to Under the Boardwalk. His humor and musical talents will leave you wanting more. Ron and Opal are thrilled to have him along with them as an addition to their variety show and gospel concerts. This multi award winning couple will do more than sing you a good song, they will enter- tain you as always in times past. If you enjoy classic country, gospel, 50’s, humor, pop, and maybe even a little west- ern, mark these dates on your calendar. Whether you’ve seen them in past years or this is your first time to catch one of their concerts, now’s the time. Gather up your friends for a great night out together and we’ll see you there!
