Date Night With 50s & 60s Music at the Elkader Opera House

Looking for a date night? How about traveling through the scenic rolling hills and rocky limestone bluffs where the Turkey River slowly flows beside the historic small town of Elkader? Come to the Elkader Opera House for a night you won't forget. It's sure to bring you back to the days when black vinyl records spun in the brightly lit jukeboxes.

Back by popular demand on Thursday, June 13 will be Buddy & Beyond, The Johnny Rogers Show starting at 7 pm. Reminisce to the cool oldies of the 50s & 60s with music from the “King” Elvis Presley, Buddy Holly, Chuck Berry, and Jerry Lee Lewis. It'll bring you back to the days of poodle skirts, black leather jackets, and letterman sweaters where all the rad. It’s guaranteed to get you up movin’ and groovin’ to the rhythm and beat.

Remember when a British rock band, John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison, and Ringo Starr took America by storm and transformed popular music? On Friday, June 21, The Return: A Tribute to the Beatles starts at 7:30 pm. Come to enjoy the amazing hits of the “Fab Four” like “Yesterday,” “Hey Jude,” and “Day Tripper.” Come to see the “Fab Four” in this spectacular tribute of American musical history.

Date night with the music of yesterday makes new memories in historic Elkader.
