Critics have written that, “These boys have seen it all, sing it all, and make us laugh until
we double over, reminding us that in life, it’s not just the destination, it’s the journey. Get
ready for one side splitting ride as we go on an excursion only the 3 Redneck Tenors could
have had… delighting audiences with their vocal prowess and a smorgasbord of songs and
music ranging from Gospel to Country, to Broadway, Pop, and Classical. Though NOT The
3 Tenors, these 3 gentlemen, 3 Redneck Tenors, will have you rolling in the aisle with
laughter and up on your feet with excitement.”

About the Appalachian Theatre
The mission of the Appalachian Theatre of the High Country is to revitalize and sustain this historic community touchstone as a quality home for diverse artists and audiences with a special focus on programs that celebrate our distinctive Appalachian heritage and enhance our capacity to serve as an economic catalyst for Boone and the High Country. Once a gorgeous 999-seat Art Deco movie house, the building closed in 2007 and sat empty and gutted for years. On October 14, 2019, the Appalachian Theatre reopened its doors after a $10 million renovation that brought the distinctive Art Deco details back to this historic theatre and created a new 629- seat, state-of-the-art, acoustically pristine venue for live concerts, films, plays, and dance performances. The historic Appalachian Theatre has entertained regional audiences in the heart of downtown Boone, North Carolina since 1938.
