First of all, I want to call your attention to a show happening in Pekin at Goodfellas on Saturday Dec. 22. WWCT presents NRBQ in a one night only performance. Tickets are twenty dollars and are available at Goodfellas and all Co-op locations. Anyone here remember Scott Ligon? Well if you’ve ever seen The River City Soul Revue, Dollface, The Heatersons or Scott Ligon and The Ligonaires, you’ve seen Scott play. Scott is an integral part of NRBQ now, and he’s realized the dream of a lifetime, playing with one of his heros, Terry Adams of NRBQ. Don’t miss this homecoming show. It might be one of the only chances to see this band in this area.
