WABASH — Two shows have been added to the entertainment roster at the Honeywell Center: country and gospel singer Josh Turner and the holiday spectacular Mannheim Steamroller. Tickets for both shows will go on sale at 10 a.m. Friday, July 26.
Josh Turner will appear at 7:30 p.m. Friday, Oct. 11. Turner’s rich, deep voice and distinctive style has garnered hits like “Your Man,” “Why Don’t We Just Dance” and “Firecracker.”
Growing up in the church, Turner founded and sang bass in a gospel quartet called “Thankful Hearts.” His career got a boost in 2001 during his debut on the Grand Ole Opry when he sang “Long Black Train.” He received a standing ovation and sang it again for an encore.

Mannheim Steamroller will appear on Thurs., Dec. 19, 2019, for two performances at 3 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. The popular band has sold more than 40 million albums, with 28 million in the Christmas genre. Their holiday CDs have become synonymous with Christmas and occupy top positions on Billboard’s seasonal chart every year. In addition to being a holiday tradition for many families, the Mannheim Christmas Tour regularly attracts repeat attendance from multi-generational guests, and is one of the longest-running tours in the music industry.
Chip Davis, founder and creator of Mannheim Steamroller, makes innovative music inspired by the sounds of another age. In 1984, he released his first Christmas album which revolutionized holiday music. He went on to become the #1-selling Christmas recording artist of all time.
