Local singers perform in dark
The El Toro bar in Crete, Neb. is a long way
from the glamour and excitement of more
famous nightspots in places such as Las Vegas or
A local rock group making a Crete appearance
a few weeks ago discovered there was not enough
room to set up their lights and had to perform in
That group was Wind Song, a band UNL
students might remember from performances at
Der Loaf unci Stein or their frequent
engagements at fraternity and sorority functions.
The lead singer and the. only female in the
quintet is herself a UNL student.
Junior Beverly Boileson said she believes an
aspiring singer can only be taught so much.
"I've had years and years of voice lessons,"
she said. "It has helped with the basics but as
soon as you start with bands you have to go with
what you feel."
Ins addition to singing with Wind Song,
Boilesen sings with the University Singers and the
Swing Choir. "Sometimes I'll go through all three
of them in one day," she said.
When Boilesen is performing with Wind Song,
she is joined by organist Mike Hoefs, drummer
Ron Jester and guitarists Ken Campbell and Iee
Ahrens, a 33 year-old Vietnam veteran, said
the group encounters many different people and
tastes during "gigs.
He recalled the story of a guy who danced
through the group's entire performance one
night, then came up to them afterwards and said,
"Wow, you guys were really bad."
He also remembered the night one of the band
members tried out a song he had written and was
booed. Later, he prefaced the same tune by
saying it was an Allman Brothers song.
He played it exactly the same way, this time
to a warm reception.
Best with dancers
Both Boilesen and Ahrens agreed that a band
is not at its best when people aren't dancing so
they usually offer free beers to the first couple to
emerge from a hesitant crowd.
Occasionally things will get a little dull on
stage and Ahrens has been known to recite an
off-color phrase or two into the microphone
primarily "to embarrass Beverly."
Boilesen vas asked if she had many problems
with intoxicated onlookers or backstage
"Once in a while, you get someone who will
just stand and stare," she laughed. "But that
happens to everyone."
The 5 ft. 7 in. blonde added that she hoped
someday to be a club singer but that her
immediate future included volunteer work with
For now, Boilesen and Ahrens just hope to
keep traveling the state.
Speaker has teeth into Dracula
- (5 V
I.--,,,,,.,. ,., ' - Loin.,.!
By Susan Edwards
Count Dracula-history and legand-will be dissected in
tonight's Talks and Topics program. Raymond McNallv, author of
In Search of Dracula, has had his teeth into Dracula i. earch for 1 5
years. His results will be illustrated in a multi-media show at 8 p.m.
in the Union ballroom.
A 1931 Bela Lugosi vampire movie whetted McNally's interest
in the Count's historical basis, he said. McNally, professor of
history and director of the Slavic and East European Center of
Boston College, worked in Romania neck to neck with scholar
Radu Florescu to locate Dracula's castle in 1969.
The 15th century Romanian prince was nicknamed Vlad the
Impaler. Dracula, meaning "son of the Devil," is named for his
father, Dracul. .
According to McNally, Vlad refined torture to an art form-he
once made a vital forest out of 20,000 impaled Turks.
The Count's reputation is still at stake-some Transylvanians
still use garlic to ward off vampires. McNally says contemporary
stories in surrounding villages are as bloodcurdling as the folklore
of the fictitious monster.
The presentation, which features films and slides, costs $1.50 or
75 cents with a University I.D. McNally also will speak Thursday at
10:30 a.m. in the Union Small Auditorium.
