TULSA, Okla. – Jana Jae, known for her virtuosity on the ‘Magic Blue Fiddle,’ is planning on taking the Hee Haw audience on a musical journey where she performed on the historic television program either as part of the Buck Owens band or as a soloist. In a new touring production entitled Kornfield Friends, Jana has put together a grouping of original cast members from Hee Haw. Kornfield Friends will bring a touch of ‘Kornfield Kounty’ to stages around the US and Canada and will have the audience involved from the beginning to the end. Whether singing, clapping, laughing or crying, this show has something for everyone.
“Are you ready to get ‘pickin’ and grinnin’?? I sure hope so, because we are all very excited about taking this show on the road,” says Jana Jae. “We did a couple test shows and they went over great. People just loved the down-home jokes and family-friendly show that took them back to when Hee Haw was originally airing.”
Each show will consist of Lulu Roman, Misty Rowe, Jana Jae, and Buck Trent – all four cast members of the hit country music variety show HEE HAW! HEE HAW is only one of a handful of television programs that have had a profound and lasting influence on American culture with many of its skits today being woven into the American comedic fabric. The hit television show, which continues to air on RFD-TV in reruns, take the viewer to their happy place in time with some rural culture, fun humor, and some great country music.
LULU ROMAN served up many laughs and, well, some greasy food at Lulu’s Truck Stop where the food and customer service was usually pretty bad. In addition, Lulu is remembered for being a member of the Hee Haw All-Jug Band and her sitting around on an old-fashioned sofa in the parlor being a deadpan character and commenting. MISTY ROWE is known for her “Bedtime Stories” sketch. Rowe would deliver one of her bizarre stories, sometimes a rewritten nursery rhyme. By the sketch’s end, she would deliver a humorous “moral to the story,” giggle, wink at the camera, and blow out the candle which was lit on the nightstand next to the bed where the story was told. BUCK TRENT is known for his pickin’ and grinnin’ as a featured performer on Hee Haw as well as his years working with Roy Clark.
On certain production shows a special guest, who had previously performed or appeared on Hee Haw will be added to the show. Those guests will be announced, in advance, of the performance.
Kornfield Friends is executive produced by Jana Jae, managed by Al Schiltz for The Consortium, and booked by Robert Williams and Whitney Crabtree for WBA Entertainment.
