ONLY 12 TICKETS REMAIN FOR VELVEETA'S INDOOR CONCERT ON SATURDAY, MAY 8

Only 12 tickets remain for the Velveeta concert at 7:30 p.m. on Saturday, May 8 in the Coolidge Theatre at the Deane Center for the Performing Arts at 104 Main Street in Wellsboro. 

Velveeta, Penn State's premier party band, will perform a variety of 1980s and 1990s pop and rock tunes and a mix of today’s music by well-known artists. “What I Like About You,” I Love Rock ‘n’ Roll,” and “I’m a Believer” are just a sampling of the hits in Velveeta’s repertoire. 

Band members are: Brian Kriley, vocalist and lead guitarist; John Matthews, vocalist and bass guitarist; John “Bones” Harper, vocalist and drummer; and Brent Martin, vocalist, keyboardist and rhythm guitarist. 

Almost 26 years ago in July of 1995, the foursome started playing their original music as a grunge-inspired band called Broken.  Then they decided to give it a go as a cover band called Velveeta, playing classic hits from the 1980s like “Come On Eileen” and “Jessie’s Girl."  "Things exploded for us," said Matthews. Within months, most of the band members were able to quit their day jobs. Today, Velveeta's unique live music experience remains an audience favorite. “We just want it to be fun," Matthews said. 

Tickets are $25. For more information, contact the Deane Center at 570-724-6220 or www.deanecenter.com.
