This coming Saturday, December 15th, the Heirloom Market & Café has a very special treat for everyone attending their entertainment show. The 50s and 60s rock and roll band “Coupe DeVille” will be in the café at 9 a.m. as they tape their next segment of “The Old Time Heirloom Hour.”
“Coupe DeVille” is the area’s premier oldies band and they have been practicing hard for this performance. Bill Heid, owner of The Heirloom Market & Café, and his co-host, Bob Whitten, have asked them for some very special Christmas music for this show. This band is used to plugging in and blasting out great songs from the past, but they have been asked to unplug and bring a few “acoustic” versions of Christmas songs from the 50s and 60s.
When asked about playing for the show, Jim Clark of Coupe DeVille said, “We are very excited to be playing in the café; we never get a chance to play acoustic versions of Christmas songs.” The bass player Bob Coon goes on to say, “This gives us a chance to show a different side of our music.”
Coupe DeVille was the brain child of Jim Clark and Bob Coon. While sophomores at Clinton High School they knew what the future was to bring. They developed a large following and all through the 80s and 90s they appeared on all the Rock-n-Roll shows in eastern Iowa and western Illinois, sharing the stage with musical legends Del Shannon, The Crickets, Gary Lewis, The Shirelles, Buddy Knox, and Johnny Rivers just to name a few. For their efforts they were inducted into the Iowa Rock-n-Roll Music Association "Hall of Fame" in 2001.
This group has been entertaining Iowa and Illinois for years and now they will be gracing The Heirloom Market & Café with a truly exceptional performance and the show is free to the public. Just show up a little early, get a good seat, and enjoy the show. Live taping of the show starts at 9:30 a.m., and with local celebrities like “Bait Shop Todd” and The Heirloom Market’s own talented Aaron Fullan on the piano, everyone is sure to enjoy every minute of this show.
James Traver, the store manager will be introducing his “item of the week,” a special deal just for audience members attending, and just in time for Christmas. Nick Huizenga, senior botanist at Heirloom Solutions, will be on hand to answer any gardening questions the crowd might have.
