LAST RUNNING DEER SHOOT IS THIS SUNDAY, NOV. 22; WIN A FROZEN TURKEY
This Sunday, Nov. 22 from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m., rain or shine, the Nessmuk Rod and Gun Club is hosting its last running deer shoot at the club’s outdoor range at 4646 Route 287, 6.5 miles south of Wellsboro in Delmar Township. Club members and the public are invited to participate.
The shooter with the highest score in the last round this Sunday will win a frozen turkey. A special round for youth, 17 and under, will also be held with the one with the highest score winning a gift certificate from Cooper’s Sporting Goods in Mansfield or from Barbers Sporting Goods Store in Sabinsville.
The running deer paper target is fixed to a four-foot by three-foot wooden frame that is mounted on wheels on a cable. The target is pulled along the cable from left to right at 100 yards from the shooting area. Only one shooter is allowed to be on the range per pass. Safety gear and eye and ear protection are required to participate. A sign-up will be held before each round of shooters.
The fee for youth 17 and under, and for adults, 18 and older, is $2 per pass with a limit of two shots per pass. The fee will be split with 50 percent going to the shooter with the highest score per round and the other 50 percent to the club.

GUEST MUSICIANS TO PERFORM WITH STAGE FRIGHT DURING THE LAST WALTZ CONCERT ON FRIDAY, NOV. 27 IN WELLSBORO
At 7 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 27, Stage Fright will be joined by three guest musicians as they recreate The Last Waltz, the famous farewell concert given by the Canadian-American roots rock group The Band on Thanksgiving Day, Nov. 25, 1976.
The concert will be indoors in the Coolidge Theatre at the Deane Center for the Performing Arts at 104 Main Street in Wellsboro.
The four members of Stage Fright share vocals and harmonies. They include: Joe Callahan of Wellsboro on guitar; Sean Monroe of Horseheads, N.Y. on bass guitar; Mike Watkins of Addison, N.Y. on piano, organ, accordion, mandolin and fiddle; and Mike Nickerson of Corning, N.Y. on percussion.
The guest artists are: Josh Sperrick of Corning, N.Y., a member of the band Hilltop Revelry; Manny Quinones of Corning, N.Y., a member of Blue Eyed Soul; and Wellsboro’s Brandon Lusk, guitarist. They will play and sing some of the music by the famous artists that entertained during the Last Waltz concert.
Performing live, first as the backing musicians for Bob Dylan and then as headliners, The Band’s original members had reached a crossroads in 1976 after creating some of the most influential music of the late 1960s and early 1970s. Their Thanksgiving concert was a celebration and the last time this revered rock group would ever perform live again.
The Last Waltz was presented at the Winterland Ballroom in San Francisco, California, the same venue where The Band first debuted in 1968. It would go down as one of the most spectacular events in rock history. At 5 p.m., turkey dinners were served to all 5,000 people attending followed by ballroom dancing to music by the Berkeley Promenade Orchestra and readings by poets Michael McClure and Lawrence Ferlinghetti. The Band’s show began at 9 p.m. and ended at 2 a.m.
The musical collaborators and significant influences from every stage of the group’s career were invited to perform. The Band’s famous guests included musical legends Bob Dylan, Muddy Waters, Joni Mitchell, Neil Young, Van Morrison, Eric Clapton, Dr. John, Neil Diamond, Ronnie Hawkins, Bobby Charles, and Paul Butterfield. Taking part in two spontaneous jam sessions were Ringo Starr, Stephen Stills and Ron Wood.
The farewell concert kicked off with “Up On Cripple Creek” and continued with other hits by The Band such as “The Shape I’m In”, “It Makes No Difference”, “Life is A Carnival”, “Weight” and “The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down.” It ended with them performing “Don’t Do It (Baby, Don’t You Do It).”
Stage Fright presented their first tribute concert to The Band five years ago in August of 2015. They perform songs from the Band’s entire catalog, including all their usual hits, along with their under-appreciated gems.
The Wellsboro House Restaurant and Brewery is co-sponsoring this concert with the Deane Center and will be selling beverages during the event.
Seating is limited to provide space for social distancing. Concertgoers are asked to wear a mask. This is NOT a BYOB concert.
Make reservations in advance for a table that seats up to four people for $40 or individual riser seats for $10 each by calling the Deane Center at (570) 724-6220.
LIKE A HURRICANE TRIBUTE TO THE MUSIC OF NEIL YOUNG CONCERT IS SATURDAY, DEC. 5 IN THE DEANE CENTER’S COOLIDGE THEATRE
Like A Hurricane, a four-member band based in Syracuse, New York, will present a tribute to the music of Neil Young at 7 p.m. on Saturday, Dec. 5, in the Coolidge Theatre at the Deane Center for the Performing Arts at 104 Main Street in Wellsboro.
Lead vocalist is Thom Hogan on electric and acoustic guitars, harmonica, and piano. Mike Vertino plays bass guitar; Jeff Roney, drums and percussion; and Pete “Pedro” Shank, electric and acoustic guitars and keyboards. Mike, Jeff and Pedro all sing harmony vocals.
This band performed on the Deane Center’s outdoor stage on Friday, Aug. 28. “Our last performance at Wellsboro was a great success and a real pleasure,” said Hogan. “What a gracious audience to share a summer evening of Neil’s music with us.”
The upcoming show on Dec. 5 will feature a different selection of Neil Young songs. “It will be a ‘deep cuts’ show with lesser-known treasured gems, along with Neil’s classics,” Hogan said. Look for songs like “Pocahontas”, “Homegrown”, “Walk On”, “Lookout Joe”, “Mansion on the Hill” and “Sedan Delivery”, alongside his best loved songs like “After the Gold Rush”, “Harvest Moon”, “Heart of Gold”, “Cinnamon Girl”, and “Down by the River.”
Like A Hurricane shows capture the sound and spirit of a Neil Young live concert, from his solo work to his studio recordings with Crazy Horse, Buffalo Springfield and Crosby Stills and Nash, from intimate acoustic songs with soulful lyrics to driving electric guitars. Included are folk and rock songs; well-known favorites as well as a number of deep cuts audiences don’t ordinarily get to hear.
This band had its beginnings in a conversation Hogan had in the winter of 2017-2018 with Shank, his friend and a fellow musician. “Mike, Jeff, Pedro and I are the founding members of this band,” Hogan said. “We began a heavy rehearsal schedule in June 2018 and played our first Like A Hurricane show on Dec. 21, 2018.” The band has been focused on learning Young’s extensive catalog of material.
“I feel extremely fortunate to play with the three of them,” said Hogan. “They are quality performers and great guys. As a group, we are dedicated to giving our audience an authentic Neil Young live concert experience. It’s wonderful for his fans to have a chance to hear his songs performed live and a shared experience for the audience and for us because we all love Neil’s music.”
The Deane Center and The Wellsboro House Restaurant and Brewery, which will have beverages available during the event, are presenting this concert.
This is NOT BYOB. Seating is limited to provide space for social distancing. Concertgoers are asked to wear a mask.
Tickets are $20. To reserve a table that seats up to a maximum of four people, call (570) 724-6220 in advance.
