From Alicia Keys to David Bowie, famous musicians will hit the stage Saturday for “Legends of Music,” the Lewiston Civic Theatre’s annual Fine Arts Ball fundraiser.Fifteen local performers will impersonate the famous, singing their hits at a dinner show with Las Vegas flair. The event will include a silent auction and end with dancing to music by the Katz Band. Audience members will vote for their favorite performer with their dollars.
The show is one-of-a-kind in the Quad Cities, said event organizer Jennifer Menegas. “People who long for good family entertainment won’t want to miss this.”
