May 13th Concert ~ A Wonderful Mother's Day Gift!

May 10, 2018

This Sunday's Mother’s Day Civic Symphony Concert is a great way to surprise Mom with a very unique gift, one she will never forget!

The performance of Verdi's Requiem will now take place Sunday, May 13, at 7:30 p.m. on the Weidner Center stage. This is a collaboration concert with the UW-Green Bay Music Department featuring a mass choir made up of singers from the UW-Green Bay Concert Choir, the UW-Green Bay University Singers, St. Norbert College Chamber Singers, UW-Marinette and West Shore Chorale and Silver Lake College Chorale, as well as the Green Bay Choral Artists.

The work will also feature four soloists:

Katherine Calcamuggio - an award-winning mezzo-soprano who in the past three seasons has been featured in important role and company debuts across the U.S. eliciting kudos for her "soaring, rich voice" (The Miami Herald).

Courtney Sherman - a soprano, holding a Doctorate in voice performance and a Master's degree in opera/musical theatre performance from Arizona State University, as well as a Bachelor's degree in voice performance from Western Michigan University.

And, Christopher Besch - a Bass-baritone, who has performed in seven countries on three continents with such conductors as Lorin Maazel, Leonard Slatkin, and Jeffrey Thomas. He has been described as having "a commanding stage presence and rich resonance of deep bass sound" (DC Theatre Scene).

Freedom High School Turns Rust Into a Rock Star

March 1, 2018

The SEMA (Specialty Equipment Market Association) Show in Las Vegas represents the top of the mountain in the automotive world so, of course, the students at Freedom High School in Freedom,
Wisconsin responded by building this mountain climbing monster (see accompanying photo) for SEMA 2017.

“Project Front Runner” was born with a 1985 Toyota 4Runner donated by Rick Paulick, the promoter of the NEW Motorama car show in Green Bay. Mr. Paulick wanted to reward FHS’ automotive students for volunteering at SEMA in past years.

Led by Brian Vanderheiden, Timmy Vanveghel, Trevor Hintz, and Alex Garvey, the team went to work on the 4Runner while Automotive Instructor Jay Abitz and Mr. Paulick went to work securing partnerships with local businesses and manufacturers to raise more than $20,000 to support the project.

Turning 32-year-old metal into magic in less than 7 months was a monumental undertaking. Working 7 days a week alongside expert Dave Byron and FHS alumni, students put their mechanical, welding, metal fab and painting skills to work.

As Project Front Runner made its debut on the world stage at SEMA, student Brian Vanderheiden reflected on the monumental moment, "My first complete paint job is going to SEMA! That‘s pretty cool!“ "Cool" turned to red hot when FHS students caught the attention of world renowned builders and artists at SEMA and soon they were working side by side with Count’s Kustom’s Rob Churchill and Ryan Evans from The History Channel’s Counting Cars along with Cristy Lee from Velocity’s All Girls Garage who signed the dash!

This "Must See" Vehicle will be on display at The Automobile Gallery Next Week!  Don't Miss It!

The Automobile Gallery, located at 400 South Adams Street in Green Bay, is open daily from 9:00 am to 3:00 pm to the general public unless a special event is scheduled.  It's always a good idea to call before visiting to check on the schedule.

Shawano High School Drift Car Proudly on Display at The Automobile Gallery

February 15, 2018

The Shawano High Drift Car is now on display at the Automobile Gallery in Green Bay.

Shawano High Drift Club is a team of High School Students from the Shawano Automotive program who have built a Legends Drift Car from the ground up.  

The sport of drifting is a driving technique where the driver intentionally oversteers, with loss of traction in the rear wheels or all tires, while maintaining control and driving the car as fast as possible through the entirety of a corner.

Students purchased a Legends race car and completely rebuilt it with a few modifications to turn it into a drift car. Students earned seat time by working on the car all winter and began learning to drift at US Air Motorsports.

These students are now sanctioned for the National INEX Racing series!

The Automobile Gallery salutes these students and Shawano High School. Their Drift Car will be on display until mid March, and it is a "Must See!"

Time For Some "Collaboration"

The Automobile Gallery Proudly Supports Ashwaubenon High School Students

November 16, 2017

This prototype of a Stalker Bantam (see accompanying photo) is proof that Ashwaubenon High School’s Formula Student USA Team is literally on the educational “fast track”.

The project was years in development as the team set out to improve on the Bantam Stalker which is based on legendary designer Colin Chapman’s original Lotus 7 produced between 1957 and 1972. The team’s vision was to develop a lightweight, track-only training model featuring multiple advancements to enhance performance and handling.

As a freshman Project Leader Marisa Marohl began by reverse engineering a Bantam Stalker chassis donated by Jim Woodsmall from Dallas Center, Iowa. Marisa used computer program Autodesk Inventor to engineer changes in 3-D before creating the parts.

The front suspension remains the same, but the independent rear suspension was totally designed and built by the students with major enhancements. A modified 35 Horsepower V-twin Briggs & Stratton engine will provide the muscle with a continuously variable transmission utilizing a planetary reverse system. Since the Stalker Bantam will be a track trainer, the team will be adding full dual controls on both sides of the car allowing a driving instructor full control to help students understand how to properly pilot the vehicle around the track.

Regardless of how the Stalker Bantam performs May 14th and 15th, 2018 at the CTech Motorplex at Road America in Elkhart Lake, Wisconsin, The Automobile Gallery is proud to support the Formula Student USA students who are clearly on the right track in life!

The Automobile Gallery, located at 400 South Adams Street in Green Bay, is also open to the general public on weekends and varied weekdays. It is ideally located near hotels, restaurants, and entertainment.

1953 Hudson Hornet Here For Limited Time

September 28, 2017

Featuring the Hudson’s revolutionary 1948 “step down” body design, which lowered the center of gravity and gave the Hudson Hornets superior handling, this 1953 Hudson Hornet is in Green Bay as part of The Automobile Gallery's "Guest Vehicle Program."

The Hornet dominated Nascar racing in the early 1950’s. Famed drivers, such as Marshal Teague, won 27 of 34 races in 1952, 22 of 37 in 1953 and 17 of 37 in 1954. The famed H-145 “power dome” high compression straight six was considered the engine to beat. The Hornet, with its massive 308 cubic inch engine, could go from 0-60 mph in 12.1 seconds and achieve a top speed of 107 mph.

The Hudson Hornet on display is a survior vehicle, owned by Bradley & June Kennedy. Henry Thissen, the godson of Henry Ariens, the founder of Ariens Equipment Company, purchased the Hudson Hornet new from Enneper Brothers Automotive Service in Brillion, Wisconsin, for $3,268, which included the optional eight tube am radio for $100.00.

Henry drove the Hornet until his passing in 1959. His wife Jennie then took over the Hudson until she was unable to drive any further in 1965. At this time Jean (Thissen) Trotier, Henry and Jennie’s only child, took ownership and moved the Hornet to south Milwaukee.

In 1967, the water pump gave way and the car was parked in the family garage. This is where the car sat until May 2013 when Bradley & June (the Trotier’s only child) Kennedy took ownership.

The Kennedys made minor repairs to bring the Hornet back to life. Brad & June are actively involved in showing their survivor Hornet at a number of car shows in Wisconsin through out the summer months.

The Automobile Gallery thanks the Kennedys for choosing The Automobile Gallery to display this beautiful survivor car.

The Automobile Gallery, located at 400 South Adams Street in Green Bay, is open daily from 9:00 am to 3:00 pm to the general public unless a special event is scheduled.  It's always a good idea to call before visiting to check on the schedule.

1994 Corvette Convertible Donated

August 17, 2017

Vintage Car Donated by Donald and Kristine Krueger

The Automobile Gallery is very appreciative for Don and Kristine’s generous donation, choosing The Automobile Gallery over the Corvette Museum to take guardianship of this one-of-a-kind Corvette.

Some car collectors would comment that 1 of 116 was a rare number. Others would say that 1 of 24 is even more significant. Experts might even say 1 in 7 is an exceptional find. However, a car with those numbers, which has only 2146 miles and is 23 years old, is an impossible discovery. Yet, this beautifully maintained 1994 Corvette convertible matches all of them.

In 1994, Corvette introduced two new paint colors to their exterior choices, one of them being Copper Metallic, and this is where our story begins. Because of quality problems, Chevrolet Quality Control stopped production of the Copper Metallic painted Corvettes after producing 116 vehicles. Chevrolet kept 6 of those vehicles for research. Of the remaining 110 cars, 86 were coupes and 24 were convertibles.

Of the 24 convertibles, only 7 had a solid black leather interior. That is only the beginning of our story.

After this Corvette left the assembly line it was scheduled to be delivered to Bergstrom Chevrolet in Neenah, WI, but first it made a slight side trip to Las Vegas for the Chevrolet Dealers 1994 introduction show, where this Corvette debuted its new Copper Metallic color. When the show was over this Corvette was then shipped to Bergstrom Chevrolet where Don and Kristine Krueger saw it on the lot.

After viewing the Copper Metallic in the daylight, their decision was made; they bought the Corvette.

This Corvette led a pampered life with Don and Kristine, only taken out on sunny days and warm summer nights, never seeing a cloud or a drop of rain.

Don, after three years and a very hectic business schedule, put his copper colored Corvette, with 2146 miles on the odometer, into temporary storage where it stayed for the next 20 years.

Thank you Don and Kristine for entrusting your outstanding Corvette to The Automobile Gallery!

The Automobile Gallery Welcomes 1941 Cadillac Series 6 "Back Home"

August 10, 2017

World War II had not yet broken out in 1941 when General Motors’ Cadillac division proudly proclaimed, “For thirty-nine years, Cadillac’s manufacturing policy has remained one of the few certain things in an uncertain world.”

An uncertain world was about to get more uncertain as Hitler advanced on Europe and the Japanese were planning a surprise attack on U.S. soil, but as 1941 began Cadillac was celebrating.

While multiple luxury car companies collapsed in the Great Depression, Cadillac emerged as the “Automotive Standard of the World” and The Series 61 Coupe was at the head of the class. The Bill Mitchell designed Series 61 is considered by some historians as the greatest Cadillac design of all-time with its fastback body and aerodynamic design.

Mrs. Obeal Speaker from De Pere, Wisconsin obviously agreed with the historians when she purchased this Series 61 brand new from Denil Cadillac on July 3, 1941. Mrs. Speaker proceeded to drive this Cadillac for the next 35 years before finally trading it in on August 16th, 1976 at Denil Cadillac for a 1973 Cadillac.

Dave & Peter Denil recognized the importance of Mrs. Speaker’s Cadillac and took ownership of the classic automobile. They maintained the Cadillac until they graciously donated it to The Automobile Gallery.

Mrs. Speaker knew a great car when she saw it. Innovation is everywhere on the Series 61 beginning with the introduction of the egg crate grille that would become a Cadillac trademark for years to come. Although a no-shift, Hydromatic transmission was introduced for the Series 61, Mrs. Speaker insisted on the three speed standard transmission with a clutch, not trusting “these new inventions”. She also ordered the optional rear seat not wanting her car to look like a Business Coupe.

Mrs. Speaker liked her Cadillac Coupe so much that when it came time to purchase a new one in 1976 she was insistent that her “new” Cadillac have both a manual transmission and a back seat. Mr. Denil, after a great deal of salesmanship, convinced Mrs. Speaker that all Cadillacs came with backseats, and that manual transmissions were no longer available in Cadillacs.

The Automobile Gallery is proud to have this Cadillac Series 61 return to the very building it once called home thanks to the generous donation from David & Peter Denil.

"Another Way" is a Better Way

As Galen Sherbon, Owner of Another Way Entertainment, told us when we first spoke with him about his business, "I started it to help with the drinking and driving problem in Northeast Wisconsin."

Galen, a proud Iraq Veteran, has produced a short video putting it all in his own words. We think you'll enjoy it; Click Here

Pansky Concerto Competition Winners Announced

February 1, 2017

Two young outstanding musicians, one a student from Green Bay and the other a senior at Lawrence University in Appleton are winners of the biennial Miroslav Pansky Memorial solo competition sponsored by the Civic Symphony of Green Bay. Auditions were held this past November at the University of Wisconsin Green Bay. Winners were chosen from 21 participants entered and judged as high school or college students.

The first place award in the high school division went to Liam Mayo, 17, of Green Bay. Emily Hauer of Appleton took second place honors. The top winner among college entrants was Derrick Hahn, a senior at Lawrence University. Evan Newman, also from Lawrence University, placed second. All four contestants won cash prizes. As first-place winners, Hahn and Mayo will be featured soloists with the Civic Symphony at its "Future Shining Stars" concert on February 18, 2017.

Hahn is a senior Piano Performance major at the Lawrence University Conservatory of Music, where he studies with Anthony Padilla. This year he also placed first in the Wisconsin state division of MTNA Young Artist as well as the Lawrence Symphony Orchestra Concerto Competition. Recipient of an Accompanying Fellowship at Lawrence, he served as rehearsal and orchestral pianist for opera productions during the past two years.

Last summer, he was awarded a vocal coaching internship at the Oberlin in Italy program in Arezzo, Tuscany, and performed to great acclaim at the Vianden International Music Festival in Luxembourg. Following his graduation this spring, he plans to pursue a master's in Piano Performance. Hahn will perform the first movement of Bela Bartok's Piano Concerto No. 2 and Mayo will perform the 1st movement of Felix Mendelssohn's Piano Concerto No. 1 in g minor, Op. 25.

Mayo is a homeschooled 17 year old student from Green Bay. He studies piano with Professor Anthony Padilla at Lawrence Conservatory of Music in Appleton. Liam has been selected in the Division Finals as an alternate in the Music Teachers National Association Senior Piano Competition and as an honorable mention in the finals of the Schubert Club Junior Piano Competition. Most recently, he won honorable mention in the Bolz Young Artist competition, and first place in the Oshkosh Symphony Orchestra Discovery Artist Competition, and the Wisconsin Chamber Orchestra Young Artist Concerto Competition.

He also has studied violin with Professor Wen-Lei Gu, also at Lawrence Conservatory, and chamber music with Carol Leybourn at the Lawrence Academy of Music, as both a pianist and a violinist. Besides music, Liam has a passion for writing and acting. His latest roles include the Nutcracker Prince with the Makaroff Youth Ballet and Dickon in the Cavalry Players production of the Secret Garden. He is the pianist for the Makaroff Youth Ballet.

For Details on the February 18th Concert, Please Click Here

The competition is open to young performers who live or study in Northeastern Wisconsin. It was established in 2008 in honor of Pansky, who died in 2007. He was conductor for 23 years of the Green Bay Symphony Orchestra. Pansky was also founder and artistic director of the Pamiro Opera Company, which staged some 30 full-scale, professional opera productions over a period of 20 years. In designating the event in Pansky's memory, the Civic Symphony board took particular notice of the inspiration and encouragement he provided to young musicians through his work with the youth orchestras he directed for many years.

Concerts are presented at the Historic Meyer Theatre in downtown Green Bay.

Plan Now to Support Our Veterans!

November 10, 2016

Friday, November 11th -- and for some of us, all weekend -- we celebrate Veterans Day.  This seems like a great time to consider how we might support those who have helped secure for us the blessings of Liberty and Justice.

One way to support our veterans, is by supporting Veteran-owned Businesses.  Then, when you find a Veteran-owned Business that directs some of its proceeds to help veterans, you've found a real "Win/Win" situation!

One of our Network Members, Another Way Entertainment, owned by Iraq Veteran Galen Sherbon, is just such a business. Galen frequently sponsors tours and events from which proceeds are directed to organizations and efforts to help other veterans.

A great, fun event -- one that also helps our veterans -- is coming up later this month: The 2016 Beer & Wine Tour.

"$5 of each ticket sold will go to help veteran in need, we will write out a check to a local Wisconsin veteran non-profit organization. You're not only joining this tour to have fun, you will also be helping a local veteran who is in need."

Emily S.
"Another Way Entertainment was absolutely fantastic for our wedding day! Our driver was so wonderful and accommodating! The whole process from booking to the day of the event was so stress-free! I wish that I could give Another Way Entertainment 10 stars, instead of just 5!"

Kim W.
We were looking for an affordable, easy going transportation option for our wedding party and guests. Another Way Entertainment was it! From start to finish Galen was focused on us. We could decorate however we wanted, bring what we wanted on the bus, and had a driver who didn't mind going to the farm and having a big dog come on and say hi. Another Way Entertainment will give you a stress-free experience on your wedding day, letting you have as much crazy fun as you desire! Thank you!

Courtney C.
The bus service was excellent! We had a great time, and it worked out perfectly for the hours we needed it on our big day! We plugged in someone's phone to play some music, and we were dropped off on time at our reception hall. You are by far the most reasonably priced bus service in town, and we loved that you (are) pay by the hour, instead of having a straight fee for hours that we wouldn't be using it. I have already recommended your company to others I know and hope that word spreads about how great your bus service is as well as how easy you are to work with! Thanks again for helping us in making our day perfect.

Jeff V.
Take the safe route, 'n hop on the "party bus." Why risk getting a DUI when going out for a weekend of fun with your friends? Get on the bus and enjoy a safe alternative to drinking n driving!! Leave the driving to the awesome bus driver!

You can learn a lot about a business, by listening to what people are saying.  It seems that a lot of people are saying good things about Another Way Entertainment!

Another Way Entertainment ~ A Customer Testimonial

July 21, 2016

Reviews are important. When we're about to make something other than a routine purchase, many of us like to "do our homework," to be assured that we are making a good buying decision.

With that in mind, we'd like to share with you a testimonial about Another Way Entertainment:

"What made us pick AWE (Another Way)?

We struggled finding something affordable, and something that would fit the size of our wedding party.We knew we didn't want a limo, and our other options were just not exactly what we needed.

Two things sold me: Price, and how quickly you were to respond to emails; and how often you checked in with us leading up to the wedding as far as locations and times.

How did AWE work out? WAY BETTER THAN I IMAGINED! I had so much fun, but  also I wasn't nervous about who I was dealing with; and I had no worries. I would honestly recommend you to anyone for weddings, parties; anything!

So again, thank you for making our wedding day so fun, and being so awesome to work with!"

- Elizabeth and Ryan

Well, there you have it: "I would honestly recommend you to anyone for weddings, parties; anything!" That's the sort of endorsement any business owner would love to receive.

3 Years in Business, and a Busy Wedding Season!

June 29, 2016

Just recently, June 13th to be exact, Another Way Entertainment observed 3 Years in Business!

"The start of this business didn’t go quite as planned, but I didn’t give up trying. Presently, I help people with weddings, wine tours, bachelor and bachelorette parties, birthday parties, and outdoor tubing on the Wolf River, etc. My company is extremely accommodating for these events and parties, so whatever it may be just ask! My ultimate goal is to give people a safer option, instead of driving to these events where they will be drinking. I want everyone to be able to have fun and be safe..." - Galen Sherbon, Owner & Iraq Veteran

In addition, wedding season is here, and its going to be a busy summer. Many couples are in the process of finalizing arrangements; including transportation plans.

If you’re already married, what did your party bus company do for you on your special day? Did they just show up and give you a ride, or did they make your day even more special? Chances are, if you don’t remember the service of the company for your own wedding, it really wasn’t that good to begin with.

Besides a gift of champagne and glassware, Another Way Entertainment will give you the expertise and quality service you deserve - especially on such an important day in your life.  Galen will stay in touch with you throughout your planning process, in order to adjust to any necessary changes.  

So, if you're getting married, or are helping to plan a wedding, give Another Way Entertainment a call, and see the difference that comes from committment.

You can contact Another Way Entertainment by visiting their website, or just give Galen a call at 920.217.2317, and tell him the Green Bay News Network sent you!

Galen's Story - "Why I started this business"

November 19, 2015

Galen Sherbon, Owner of Another Way Entertainment, is a proud Veteran, having served his country in the U.S. Marine Corps - completing two tours of duty in Iraq.

You might wonder why Galen chose this particular type of business venture.

"I started it to help with the drinking and driving problem in Northeast Wisconsin.

My goal for this company is to eventually expand beyond party buses, and to create a “bar route.” This bar route will pick people up from designated locations, and bring them to the bar and back; decreasing the 'need' to drink and drive! I wanted to start a small business to create awareness of this problem, and to help people have fun and be safe all at the same time!

The start of this business didn’t go quite as planned, but I didn’t give up trying. Presently, I help people with weddings, wine tours, bachelor and bachelorette parties, birthday parties, and outdoor tubing on the Wolf River, etc. My company is extremely accommodating for these events and parties, so whatever it may be just ask! My ultimate goal is to give people a safer option, instead of driving to these events where they will be drinking. I want everyone to be able to have fun and be safe..."
