Vacaville’s Buck Ford is quickly becoming a local legend in his own right as a smooth voiced crooner with a throwback country sound. At 22, Buck Ford is already a pure country singing sensation and Nashville recording artist, who focuses on keeping the traditional country sound and rhythm flowing. Some of his influences consist of George Strait, Merle Haggard, George Jones and Keith Whitley.

'Big Purple Undies' hit the stage in Vacaville

'Big Purple Undies' hit the stage in Vacaville

VACAVILLE - “Big Purple Undies,” a must-see one-woman comedy show from international comedienne Lou Kelman, returns to the Vacaville Performing Arts Theatre in October.

“Big Purple Undies” started off as a collection of funny poems Kelman penned many years ago and has since grown into a full-scale, all-singing, all-dancing two-hour comedy show. Kelman’s brand of humor is very different than many other female comics, earning her awards for writing and comedy. She finds the funny side of everyday life women share without being crude. In fact, Kelman prides herself on presenting a clean show that any grandmother would enjoy.

The “Big Purple Undies” experience was primarily conceived as comedy for women; however, Kelman has found a special place with her male audience.
