This event showcases a talent from the Chesaning and the surrounding area.

It’s a full lineup of exceptional entertainment at an incredible value of just $5 per person, under 10 are free. The money raised will support the charitable community efforts of the Chesaning Kiwanis Club.

Schwandt is very pleased that Pharmacist Greg Jenkinson, of Broad Street Pharmacy in Chesaning, and his father, Charles Jenkinson will be returning for another crowd-pleasing performance on guitar and mandolin. The father and son team are expected to perform one of the songs Greg wrote, called “Zephyr Wind,” which they perfomed at Chesaning’s Got Talent two years ago.

Another local group, The Pilgrim Band, will perform a combination of old time country and a little bit of rock’n roll, according to band leader Randy Stoddard. The five person group includes Freddie Wilbanks, Nick Stoddard, Randy Stoddard, Em McKnight and Caleb Kimball. Randy commented, “We’re excited to be able to play with the Kiwanis Club.”

Schwandt talked about the very talented Jannene Ryder, who will be playing piano again this year.

A youth dance troop from Kim’s Dance Dynamics of Owosso will be performing for the crowd.

Schwandt mentioned that there will be a country-western act as well.

The Youth & Children’s Choir from Our Lady Church of Chesaning will sing, accompanied by Father Rick Bokinskie.

According to Dave Smith of St. Charles, his group called “Kathy & the Boys” will be back, performing country music. This will be their third appearance at Chesaning’s Got Talent, Smith said.

Another outstanding addition is performers of Muyzka! an acoustic folk music group out of Midland. Lee Anne Whitman will be on guitar and vocals; while Johnny Hunt plays banjo, mandolin, guitar and baritone vocals.
