The Marion Ross Performing Arts Center here in Albert Lea, MN, was very impressed with Dennis Curley and his Country Roads tribute show! As the theatre building manager and entertainment contact, I was very pleased by the outstanding musicianship and attention to detail of the entire performance. In addition, the whole crew was very polite and personable. We will be having them back as soon as we find a date that works for both of us! A class act for sure!!
