Comedy Musician Steve Goodie in Concert
Name: Comedy Musician Steve Goodie in Concert
Date: May 10, 2019
Time: 7:00 PM - 10:00 PM MDT
The Laramie House Concert Society (http://www.laramiehouseconcerts.com) is excited to announce an upcoming concert by singer/songwriter Steve Goodie. Steve, who has been described as “like Weird Al, only funnier,” is known worldwide for his original comedy music and parodies. He is also the originator of the musical genere known as “Wizard Rock” - songs based on J.K. Rowling's "Harry Potter" books (which, like the books, are not just for kids). Steve is the longstanding host of the famed Open Mic Night at Nashville's Bluebird Cafe, which has launched the careers of many well known singer-songwriters, and has been featured hundreds of times on the Dr. Demento Show (a weekly comedy music show that ran for decades on radio stations nationwide and has now become a podcast). He's also the recipient of a 2016 Logan Award for Excellence in Comedy Music. If you like clever comedy music, standup comedy, Harry Potter, and/or just seeing tremendously talented musicians, come to see Steve on Friday, May 10th, when Laramie House Concerts will be hosting him in the downtown loft which, appropriately enough, we have dubbed the Room of Requirement. The concert will be on the last day of UW classes, making it an ideal date night for students, faculty, and staff as well as all members of the community at large. Here are some samples of Steve's music: Tweetin' on a Jet Plane (Parody of “Leavin' on a Jet Plane” by John Denver, written after an airline pilot missed the airport while distracted by social media): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WjJcme13mbU The NASCAR Song (original): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VmiPbNA7EbM Harry's Wand (A clever 3-minute synopsis of “Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban” to the tune of “Stacy's Mom” by Fountains of Wayne): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ueFy4Jnz2Fo Doors will open at 7 PM and music will commence promptly at 7:30. Coffee, bottled water, and soft drinks will be provided. Admission is free, with a suggested donation of $10 per adult for the artist.

The Laramie House Concert Society (“Laramie House Concerts”) is a volunteer, not-for-profit community arts organization whose purpose is to encourage talented artists whose tours would otherwise merely pass through our state to perform in Wyoming.
