The 3 Redneck Tenors are back with a brand new show! Recalling the wild tale of how they became the singing sensations they are today, they take us on a rollicking gallop from juveniles, to jailbirds, to theatrical auditions and on to the world stage. These boys have seen it all, sung it all, and made us laugh ‘til we double over, reminding us that in life, it is not just the destination, it’s the journey.

You’re going to love them, and so will anyone with a sense of humor and an appreciation for incredible voices.

The musical comedy featuring classically trained veteran artists from world opera stages is like Greater Tuna meets Das Barbecu — down home laughs with big city music!
