Medina Journal-Register — The Medina Theater is celebrating Valentine’s Day a day late with a Valentine’s Day Ball.
“It’s a first for us to have something like this for Valentine’s Day,” said Renee Schuner, the events manager for the theater.
The night officially kicks off at 6:30 p.m. with hors d’ouerves and is followed by a Zambistro-catered buffet dinner at 7:30. The Easy Street Band will take the stae at 8 p.m. and go to 11 p.m.
“The band features 17 pieces and includes a few local music teachers,” Schuner pointed out.
The Easy Street Band plays a wide-ranging style of music, she added, noting its selections will be “everything from swing to Michael Buble.” The band was inducted into the Buffalo Music Awards Hall of Fame in 2010.
Having a local venue in which couples can spend a romantic Valentine’s Day is unique, Schuner added.
“In terms of big band choices we don’t know of anybody else doing anything like this,” she said. “We thought this would a nice way for people to treat their valentine to a great evening.
“It’s going to be a great night to come out and dance, and to generally enjoy a historic venue,” Schuner continued. Also, though not required, Schuner added that it would be “great” if those who attended used the event as “an excuse to get dressed up.”
Tickets for just the Valentine’s Day Ball are $10. Tickets for the dinner and the ball are $35. Tickets are available at the venue’s website, medinatheatre.com.
Schuner said online sales have been steady. She also mentioned the plan is to make the Valentine’s Day Ball an annual event.
In the coming weeks, the Medina Theater will continue to be busy as well. On March 1 a Fleetwood Mac tribute band called Rumourz will take the stage to perform the bands iconic “Rumours” album. While Rumourz performs at 8:30 p.m., the band Tuesday’s Gun will open for them at 7:30. Tuesday’s Gun will heavily feature songs by Lynyrd Skynyrd.
Then, on March 8, there is a comedy night fundraiser for Medina Memorial Hospital scheduled.
