Okuley Unverferth Dentistry presents BIG TIME Entertainment & Big Time Fun in the Community Concert Series 2016-17 as part of the Niswonger 10 Years Of Impact Season.
The stage will come to life on Sunday, September eighteenth with Guy & Ralna. Since their days on the Lawrence Welk Show, they have remained one of the most endearing couples still touring and spreading good, wholesome music.Guy and Ralna became an instant sensation, appearing from 1970 to 1982 as the most popular husband and wife team ever to appear on the Show.
Although Guy & Ralna continue to perform together, their marriage ended in divorce in 1984. Guy moved to Mississippi in 1990 and became the director of the state offices for his lifelong friend, Senator Trent Lott. Now retired from his job with the U. S. Senate, Guy continues to record, participates in Lawrence Welk Show television specials for PBS, and keeps an active concert schedule, both solo and with Ralna.
As for Ralna, she tours from coast-to-coast, performing with symphony orchestras, at civic centers, state fairs, senior expos and in showrooms in Connecticut, Las Vegas, Atlantic City, Reno and Lake Tahoe. She especially enjoyed being the opening act for "Mr. Warmth" Don Rickles, in Las Vegas, and at Merv Griffin's Resorts International in Atlantic City. She has also performed with Doc Severinson at Phoenix Symphony Hall and with Doc and the Tonight Show Band at the Sun Dome. Ralna has also been a popular guest performer in Branson, Missouri.
Their fans love them and you will too as you relive those memorable moments on the Welk Show.
