Over all the audience very much enjoyed your performance. I spoke with Jim Thaggard in the box office and he noted you were very easy to work with, in fact, terrific. He also noted how well
you stayed in touch for any issues that may have risen.

The New Christy Minstrels still tour under the direction of founder Randy Sparks.
Great show, self-contained production, low maintenance. Strong sales around the country, I’ve sold them out almost every time they are here.

Note from one of our dear fans!

Sunday, April 15, 2018 Dear Becky Jo: I just wanted to take a moment to send a note to say thank you again for the concert I attended. It was back in November (November 10) in Wisconsin Rapids, WI.  I was the gentleman with a bag full of lps and cds for Randy to sign. My wife and I drove two and half hours for the concert and I don’t regret a single moment.  I grew up listening to the New Christy Minstrels albums, over and over, and Randy Sparks and the New Christy Minstrels are probably the only group I would travel that distance to see. I’d like to explain that I am not a ‘typical’ fan.  I have spent my career working as a stage manager for live theatre.  I have worked on Broadway, Off-Broadway, and at some of the premiere theatres around the country, such as The Kennedy Center and the Pasadena Playhouse.  My business has been working with big names and with stars and as such I am not usually prone to being awestruck by an individual. I was awestruck when I met Randy. I was meeting the man whose life’s work has inspired me and certainly in […]

Personal message from ‘The Director’ himself…

There’s a scrap of wisdom in the Bible that I have always regarded as truth, and I’ve made an effort to follow its guidance.  I don’t recall the exact wording or where it’s to be found, but it has validity for me.  Roughly, it says: ‘Allow any cheering for yourself to be done by others.”  I’ve done that all of my adult life, but now that I’m nearing the end of my game, and as the world seems to have become so much more competitive, I’m thinking that I should perhaps speak-out.  I still have a few dedicated fans in my cheering section, but so many of the ones who were the most sincere and loudest in their praises have gone away to that Great Hootenanny In The Sky, and the younger ones that are still here tend not to know how really cool I am.    In 2007, when I had finally put together what I considered to be a valid reproduction of The New Christy Minstrels, vintage 1962-’64, we were about to perform in a wonderful venue near downtown Los Angeles, Cerritos Center For The Performing Arts, and we’d never been there before, so I began to worry […]
