Tribute to The Lawrence Welk Show stars the Champagne Lady vocalist Roberta Linn along with vocalist Richard Leibell and accordion/pianist Mark LeVang, son of former Welk cast member Neil LeVang. Our tribute to Lawrence Welk and the (now closed) Welk Theater, just miles from Temecula, will also feature the Big Band All Stars and Temecula Red Hot Dixie All Stars.
The Lawrence Welk Show was among the most successful musical variety shows in American history. A wealth of talent entertained millions of people on television and in the Welk Theaters (in Branson and Escondido) with what became known as Champagne music over its 30-year and 1,065-episode history. The show still airs on PBS with the famous bubbles.
