    White Catfish met along the banks of the Missouri River in Council Bluffs, Iowa. History reminds us that in 1804, Lewis & Clark made a similar nearby stop and named their camp White Catfish, inspired by a fellow explorer who caught a rare albino catfish.

    These six explorers of music include Dave Bergman (harmonica, vocals, guitar, banjo, melodeon), Sean Dunphy (guitar, vocals, banjo), Brett Ford (rhythm guitar, vocals), Quinn Damgaard (banjo, vocals), Charlie Schilling (drums) and Paul Hart (base). Their music is influenced by all things Americana with roots in folk, rock, country, bluegrass, and blues.

    Come jam with White Catfish and get a taste of how they like to shine.

    G2K...Once Upon A Mattress

    Chanticleer Community Theater
    830 Franklin Avenue, Council Bluffs,
    Chanticleer's opening production of the 2019-2020 season is our Children's Theater production, G2K...Once Upon A Mattress. If you thought you knew the story of ‘The Princess and The Pea,’ you may be in for a walloping surprise! Did you know, for instance, that Princess Winnifred actually swam the moat to reach Prince Dauntless the Drab? Or that, in fact, it wasn’t the pea at all that caused the princess a sleepless night? Carried on a wave of wonderful songs, by turns hilarious and raucous, romantic and melodic, this rollicking spin on a familiar classic of royal courtship and comeuppance provides for some side-splitting shenanigans. Chances are you’ll never look at fairy tales quite the same way again.

    Ticket prices are:
    Adults: $25
    Seniors(60+): $20
    Students: $15

    Performances are Friday, Saturday, and Sunday starting on September 13 and running through September 29. Friday and Saturday performances begin at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday performances begin at 2 p.m.

    Join us for music by Kid Nebraska!

    Bio: The band formed in the fall of 2017. Even though Josh Kidney was already busy playing guitar for Dylan Bloom, he wanted an outlet for the songs he’d been writing over the years. On a whim, he messaged Travis Muzney, a drummer who’d filled in for Dylan on several occasions. Travis jumped at the chance to start a band and brought along Jon Packard on bass. All that was left to round out the sound was a second guitarist. That’s when Josh called his longtime friend and guitar mentor Todd Laird. Once the four-piece was established, the band started practicing and booking. Their first single “Go” was produced and recorded by Matty Sanders at Fuse Studios and will be released on August 14. In October, the band will return to the studio to finish up their debut EP.

    G2K...Once Upon A Mattress

    Chanticleer Community Theater
    830 Franklin Avenue, Council Bluffs,
    Chanticleer's opening production of the 2019-2020 season is our Children's Theater production, G2K...Once Upon A Mattress. If you thought you knew the story of ‘The Princess and The Pea,’ you may be in for a walloping surprise! Did you know, for instance, that Princess Winnifred actually swam the moat to reach Prince Dauntless the Drab? Or that, in fact, it wasn’t the pea at all that caused the princess a sleepless night? Carried on a wave of wonderful songs, by turns hilarious and raucous, romantic and melodic, this rollicking spin on a familiar classic of royal courtship and comeuppance provides for some side-splitting shenanigans. Chances are you’ll never look at fairy tales quite the same way again.

    Ticket prices are:
    Adults: $25
    Seniors(60+): $20
    Students: $15

    Performances are Friday, Saturday, and Sunday starting on September 13 and running through September 29. Friday and Saturday performances begin at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday performances begin at 2 p.m.
