Senger, Palmer kick off performances

By Staff | May 30, 2014

Devils Lake resident Rick Senger has performed for over 50 years and became a fixture in the Music in the Park series for the past four.

“I like Rugby,” Senger said. “They [the audience] seem to appreciate the older kind of music.”

Come Wednesday, he will introduce Rugby audiences to a new face – 14-year-old Alexandria Palmer, his granddaughter. The pair will play classic country as well as ’50s and ’60s music.

“This is my first time performing [Music in the Park] in Rugby, but I’m sure it will be a really fun experience,” Palmer said in a fact sheet emailed to the Tribune.

Said Senger: “She’s no stranger to being in front of an audience. She does a good job for her age.”

Palmer has performed in Fort Totten Little Theater musicals in the past, including lead roles in “Annie” and “Wizard of Oz”.

In 1963, Senger sang with a group called “The Starfires.” Upon moving to Dickinson, he became a member of “The Badlanders.”

Senger has performed solo for more than a decade, and he has also hosted karaoke events. He has also performed tributes to Elvis Presley, in a complete costume and wig ensemble.

Both Senger and Palmer will sing under the Mark J. Carlson Memorial Gazebo at 7 p.m. During the performance, Rugby Lions Club members will be scooping free ice cream.

In the event of inclement weather, tune into KZZJ radio (AM 1450) for information regarding an alternate location.
