The Marlins to perform at Boot City Opry on Saturday


TERRE HAUTE — The Marlin brothers — Gary, Jace, Rick and Robert — will be bringing their show to the Boot City Opry this Saturday.

The Marlins have been performing together for more than 25 years for conventions, fairs, festivals and corporate events in the U.S. and Canada. Recently they have enjoyed great success at Casino Aztar in Evansville, the Resorts Hotel and Casino in Atlantic City, N.J., and the Nugget Hotel and Casino in Reno, Nev.

They have shared the stage with such luminaries as Lee Greenwood, The Smothers Brothers, Randy Travis, The Association and Merv Griffin. Their list of corporate clients includes Phillip Morris USA, IBM, Ford Motor Co., Miles, Inc., the National Recreation and Park Association, and the National Education Association. Singing the U.S. and Canadian National Anthems at Joe Robbie Stadium in Miami for the Florida Marlins’ historic inaugural baseball season was a special honor.

In 2012, the Marlins’ original song “I Believe in America” was included in the 9/11 Memorial Museum in New York City.

The group’s repertoire covers the entire musical spectrum including country, rock, big band, pop, classical, jazz and bluegrass. Whether it’s a show, dance, or quiet dinner music, they feel right at home — in short, music for any occasion or age group. One of their concerts might include music from such diverse artists as Glen Miller, Willie Nelson, the Beatles, the Beach Boys, Liberace, Neil Diamond, Frank Sinatra, Elvis, Andrew Lloyd Weber and Tiny Tim.

Showtime is 7 p.m. Tickets are $15.
