SomerTyme Productions has sponsored the entertainment in the central Festhaus Tent from 5pm-9pm on Friday Oct. 5 for Porktoberque. SomerTyme Productions is a regional booking and talent company that handles production and booking for many area acts. They will be featuring two of their favorite entertainers for the main stage area on Friday evening.
The fun will kick off at 5:00 pm starting with a redneck comedy/song artist “Big Jimmy”. Big Jimmy is known for his funny redneck voice, comedic song remakes and his rib-tickling jokes. His performance contains a comedy skit that goes into songs. For example: He would tell jokes about farming and then go into this song after the joke http://www.reverbnation.com/play_now/song_13308332 and then tell another joke maybe about him living in a redneck trailor park and then go into this songhttp://www.reverbnation.com/open_graph/song/13153046 and so on. Think “Larry The Cable Guy” meets “Weird Al Yankovich”. Big Jimmy also has a partner by the name of “Cracker Jack” that acts out the events in the songs.
Then, after a short break, “THE ECHO” will perform Friday night. Here’s their bio: “THE ECHO” originating from the small town of Echo, Alabama, came together in September of 2011 as a group of friends that shared an impeccable love of music hoping to bring a new and unique sound to the musical world with their soulful songwriting and anomalous lead vocalist that sings and plays the drums at the same time.
