Lunch Bunch performances start up again

Staff Writer
Since 2013, I have primarily covered the Anoka-Hennepin and Spring Lake Park school districts as well as the city of Spring Lake Park for ABC Newspapers.

After a summer hiatus, Lunch Bunch shows return to Bethel’s Sandhill Center Sept. 12.

First up are Angie Senger and Joe Chock from whom audiences can expect Opry classics and original songs. Senger is an award-winning songwriter, and together, their talent is top-notch.

Local legend Betty Rydell takes the stage Oct. 10. Rydell performs a variety of styles, including classic country, gospel, yodeling and more. She plays a number of instruments and throws a bit of comedy into her shows as well.

Todd Anderson plays Sandhill Center Nov. 14, performing Western songs from the 1940s, 1950s and 1960s by artists such as Gene Autry, Johnny Cash, Tennessee Ernie Ford, Marty Robbins, Roy Rogers and Hank Williams.

CODA, Scott Dorff on saxophone and Malcolm Anderson on piano and keyboard, returns for a holiday performance Dec. 12, the final show of 2017. The pair plans to perform traditional and modern holiday favorites lending their own jazz flair to the pieces.

Lunch is served at 11 a.m. before an 11:30 a.m. performance each month. Doors open at 10:30 a.m., and seating is on a first-come-first-served basis.

Tickets are $20 per show and can be purchased by calling 763-213-1588. Shows typically sell out, so people are encouraged to register early.

The Sandhill Center is located at 23820 Dewey St. NW, Bethel.
