Information about booking Noel & Friends

Noel’s stories recall memories from his childhood in 50s & 60s in rural Western Minnesota and farming experiences and traveling adventures in the 70s & 80s. His talent for including an element of surprise and lessons learned make these caring, touching, engaging, inspiring and uplifting stories worthwhile entertainment. A humorist at heart, Noel engages the audience in a fun-filled way.
Most often talented musicians, Rocky Mjos on the ukulele (www.ukuleledrive.com) and Peggy Larson, vocalist (www.peggylarson.com) team up with Noel to create entertaining performances with a variety of jazz, rock n roll, folk and musical score from movies.
