THE DIXIE CUPS STORY THE DIXIE CUPS STORY

We are the Dixie Cups, born of the desire to play American Music. Our Dixieland style combines the feel of ragtime, swing & jazz.

Larry Harper, trumpet player, is from Tecumseh. He came up with the name of Dixie Cups and joined Martin Scott of Clinton, who plays trombone, Sharon Scott, who plays tuba and Dave McDonagh of Saline, who plays tenor sax & clarinet. Our awesome clarinet player was Wendell Birdsall, until his recent death. Our rhythm strummin’ comes from the banjo work of Spencer Bennett of Adrian.

Most of our arrangements are many decades old and were used by earlier Dixieland bands. We invite other wonderful performers to join us for some of our gigs.

Tecumseh Players Tecumseh Players

2015 has the Tecumseh Players celebrating 55 years of performing in the Lenawee County area. For many years, their home stage was located in the Glass Room of the Tecumseh Community Center. In 1981, with the opening of the Tecumseh Civic Center, they moved onto its brand new stage to annually do both a musical and drama. At Christmas time, they've done projects with both the TCA and the Tecumseh Big Band. In 2010, they hosted a world premier performance of the script Sam and Laura by Pulitzer Prize winning journalist, novelist, and non-fiction writer Ron Powers. In recent years, the Players have branched out into various venues, including dinner theater at the Clinton Inn, dessert theater at the British Tea Pantry, and wine and cheese theater at J Trees winery. Info about upcoming events can be found on their Facebook page, Fans of the Tecumseh Players.

TJ Craven Show TJ Craven Show

Since the age of three, TJ has been singing for a crowd. Memorizing all the songs in an adult Christmas Cantata at church and hasn’t stopped since. TJ loves pop, oldies, country, gospel and last but not least, Elvis.Most recently this entertaining fourteen-year old has been lending his talents to The Veteran’s of Foreign War. His passion for supporting the troops began when he was only eleven. He was asked to perform at a charity event at Boomer’s Roadhouse in Waterford for a fallen hero named Mst Sgt Anthong Yost. From this, TJ was inspired to write a song, Forgotten Heroes, in honor of all soldiers who give their lives in the name of freedom. Since then, his experience has allowed him to meet and talk to many veterans and active soldiers across the United States and Iraq.

TJ’s charitable contributions do not stop there. Breast Cancer functions, The March of Dimes, Relay for Life, and Easter Seals, where TJ had the pleasure of meeting Oakland County Executive L. Brooks Patterson. The two shared a short conversation and a joke before TJ took the stage to entertain the crowd with his rendition of “The King”. Along with the many charity events TJ performs, he has also had the pleasure of opening up for National Country music artists, Steven Cochran, Trailer Choir, Wild Honey, Whiskey Falls, and Clay Underwood. He has also had the pleasure of performing along side Sheldon Kay and The Juke Joint Johnnies, Kentucky Strai
