Corporate Event Entertainment
The popular national touring show of 3 Redneck Tenors has gone corporate! Imagine at your next event...in the melodic wake of the three operatic tenors comes a new breed of tenors from more humble origins...the 3 Redneck Tenors. The performance features classically trained veteran artists from Broadway and world opera stages and is unlike any typical event entertainment - it's down home laughs with serious big city music!
The story starts in a far away land called Paris…that’s right Paris, Texas. You see, there was these three young, slim, good lookin’ fine song bird-like singin’ boys named Billy Bob, Billy Joe and Billy Billee. Okay, maybe not so young, slim and good lookin’ but, whoa doggy, can they sing!

This is a tale about the Colonel’s search for the perfect venue and style for our boys to make it to the big time.
