PUNXSUTAWNEY â€” Itâ€™s that time of year again â€” time for Phil to put on his tuxedo, top hat and dancing shoes for the Inner Circleâ€™s Groundhog Ball, which will be held Jan. 26 at the Punxsutawney Country Club.
Doors open for the event at 8:30 p.m., and the music will fill the air from 9 p.m. to 1 a.m.
This yearâ€™s entertainer â€” Rudy and the Professionals â€” played the event last year and provided â€śa fabulous show with all types of musical selections,â€ť said Katie Donald, executive director of the Groundhog Club.
The band is a six-piece, high-energy band specializing in a vast variety of musical styles from Motown and R&B to Caribbean, Oldies, Top 40s and dance music.
Rudy and the Professionals has opened for many groups including, but not limited to, Earth, Wind and Fire; Lee Greenwood; The Platters, and Kool & the Gang.
The band members have graced such venues as Universal Studios and the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame.
Tickets for this formal event are by pre-sale only and cost $30 each.
They are available at the Punxsutawney Groundhog Club, 102 West Mahoning St., and online at www.groundhog.org.
Hors dâ€™oeuvres are included, and a cash bar is available.
â€śI am looking forward to this event,â€ť Donald said. â€śEveryone had a wonderful time last year, and it was a great opportunity to meet visitors from out of town, as well as members of the Punxsutawney community.â€ť
