HIGH HEEL    6:30 PM – 10:30 PM 

Lisa Larsen

 

Omaha’s #1 family friendly band!

With the sole purpose of having fun with the audience, this band covers a wide variety of your favorite songs including classic rock, new country, disco and sweet ballads.

Featuring lead vocalist Lisa Larsen, most recognized by her amazing vocals and of course her… high heels!
She is all over the stage and in the audience, creating an interactive show that’s charming to watch as well as listen to. Her signature move is to walk out into the crowd and deliver the performance within arms reach, considered nothing less than endearing.

Lisa was the lead singer for the band HIGH HEEL & THE SNEEKERS, where she toured the region locally in the early 90’s. Sharing the stage with Lisa:
Clay Gochenour (bass and lead vocals), Vince Andreasen (drums and fun vocals),
Doug Parker (keyboards & piano… x’s 6), and David Carabello (lead guitarist).

HIGH HEEL… more than a band, it’s a show!
