In an attempt to chase away the February blues, Krannert Center for the Performing Arts will feature Ball in the House, an all-male a capella quintet from Boston, offering "soulful Motown classics, catchy pop arrangements, and vocal harmonies that are the foolproof cure for your February stir-crazies."
If that description wasn't enough to catch your attention, maybe this will do the trick: Ball in the House took their name from a classic "Brady Bunch" episode where Bobby cautions Peter that he is not allowed to play ball in the house. But Peter pays no attention. Uh oh!
At this free event, Ball in the House performs in the Krannert Center Lobby on Friday, February 11 at noon, with some other fun and healthy activities coordinated around them from 11:30 am to 1 pm. As part of this get-rid-of-your-winter-blahs theme, BodyWork Associates will do free mini-massages, U of I Campus Recreation will set up Nintentdo Wii, and the C-U park districts, Campus Rec and Illinois Marathon will provide information on their activities. Intermezzo, the cafe at the Krannert Center, is also offering a special hummus and roasted veggie lunch special for $6 on the 11th.
