The Nebraska Arts Council is devoted to a mission that includes, among several key points, serving as a catalyst to connect people through the arts and creative concepts. Especially in these more socially distant times, we are not as able to connect in the arts world as normal. To achieve this goal regardless, we are implementing a new program by organizing an online Nebraska Artist showcase to highlight one artist a month from the NAC touring roster, teaching roster and Individual Artist Fellowship.
The Lightning Bugs will take you back to when the big bands were blowing, the dance floors were crowded and the Mills Brothers helped everyone fall in love. The Bugs use smooth vocal harmonies and tasteful instrumental styling to pay respect to such masters as Duke Ellington, Nat King Cole and the Ink Spots, and they even play an occasional western tune to fill out the show.
