Weekend Watch: Lawrence Welk Tribute Show
Ah-one, ah-two. North Dakota’s live radio variety show, “Dakota Air,” honors the state’s favorite musical son with the Lawrence Welk Tribute Show at 7 p.m. Saturday at the Fargo Theatre, 314 Broadway. In addition to the regular skits and segments, guests like Victor Schwahn, The Harley Sommerfeld Band, Bill Tweten, Sam Mack, Vicki Melchior and Nancy Jones Schafer – playing Welk’s accordion – all perform his brand of “champagne music.” Tickets are $20 ($25 at the door) or $40 for a VIP package that includes a post-show reception with performers and Germans from Russia cuisine. Wunnerful, wunnerful! (701) 205-3182.
