Brothers & Co. in holiday show at Schuster Peforming Arts Center December 7

IMG_6181DAYTON, OH –  The Brothers & Co. Entertainers will present their unique blend of music and comedy in a special holiday performance at the Schuster Center Performing Arts Center at W. Second and Main Streets in downtown Dayton. Dubbed “The Boys in Black” the group will take the atrium stage beginning at 5 p.m. on Saturday, December 7 as part of the free Wintergarden Wonderland holiday entertainment.

Based in Jamestown, Ohio, The Brothers & Co. Entertainers are a country-western styled family band and quartet that has been performing together for nearly two decades. The group features pianist, writer, and internationally-known whip artist, Gery L. Deer; singer, percussionist, and comedian Gary Deer, Jr.; guitarist and lyricist Ed Jones; and bass singing sensation and award-winning classical magician, James Karns. Their Vaudeville-style music and variety show includes specialty acts, music and comedy.

The group is sponsored by GLD Enterprises Commercial Writing of Jamestown and presented by the Victoria Theater Association as part of the entertainment at “Wintergarden Wonderland.” In addition to live entertainment, Santa will be available to visit with the kids and they can go on their own buying spree in the Tike Shop. Of course the main attractions of the season are the restored Rike’s animated, holiday window displays. The Brothers & Co. will be the final performance of the day, all of which begin at 11am.

The Brothers & Co. are best known for presenting their own four-part spin on classic songs from such groups as The Statler Brothers, The Everly Brothers, John Denver, and many more. The 45-minute Schuster performance will also include samplings of their stage variety performances including comedy, magic, and world-champion bullwhip artistry.

This will be the sixth time The Brothers & Co. musicians have graced the stage of the Schuster at the holidays. “Our show is unique,” says performer/director, Gery L. Deer. “We like to engage the audience and entertain them, and we offer a unique, family show.”

As always, The Brothers & Co. will be dedicating this year’s performance to the family matriarch, Lois Deer, who passed away in 2011 after a long battle with Alzmheimer’s disease. For more information go online to www.thebrothersandcompany.com.
