Bosco & Hines reunion hits Vermillion

Bosco & Hines reunion hits Vermillion
After a 22-year hiatus, the music and comedy duo of Bosco & Hines is returning to Vermillion for a show on Saturday, Oct. 28. Former Vermillion residents and University of South Dakota employees Neil "Finny" Finsand and Doug Mulder have a couple of reasons for piecing the act back together and doing it in Vermillion.

"As is inevitable with all of us, Doug is on the cusp of turning 50 years old," said Finsand. "When asked what he wanted to commemorate this occasion, he said he wanted to have one more show with Bosco & Hines. We're just granting his wish."

The other reason for re-inventing their nonsense and doing it in Vermillion was to raise financial support for the Coyote women's basketball team. "Women's coach, Chad Lavin, and I go back to a friendship that was formed during high school," said Mulder. "My high school, Grant Duel, use to dominate Lavin-led Clear Lake athletic teams. When we both decided to go to USD, our friendship grew even closer. So doing this show as a benefit to Lavin's basketball team is something that's pretty close to us."

Finsand said, "Both Doug and I recognize the importance of garnering financial support for all Coyote athletic programs and as USD alums, it's important to us. All the proceeds from the Bosco & Hines show will go to the women's basketball program."

The 9 p.m. event on Saturday, Oct. 28 will take place at Pro's Bar & Grill on North Dakota Street in Vermillion. Mulder shared that, "We've got a number of friends still living in Vermillion who plan on attending."

As was typical with their show 20+ years ago, those in attendance will hear a combination of musical selections. About one third of the duo' music will be recognizable to most. Another third will be obscure tunes that have some humorous twist to them. The final third of their repertoire will be original music, most penned by Mulder.

Tickets in Vermillion are available at Nook 'n Cranny. They will also be available at the door the night of the benefit.
