Darci Lynne and Friends Live To Perform
At The State Theatre

originally published: 08/31/2018

Darci Lynne and Friends Live To Perform At The State Theatre(NEW BRUNSWICK, NJ) -- State Theatre New Jersey presents America’s Got Talent’s 2017 winner and singer/ventriloquist Darci Lynne Farmer in Darci Lynne and Friends Live on Sunday, September 23 at 3:00pm. Limited tickets available. Tickets range from $25-$85

Singer/ventriloquist Darci Lynne Farmer is one of the youngest contestants to ever win NBC’s America’s Got Talent (AGT), garnering over 21M views on AGT’s YouTube and the most votes for a final performance in the history of the show. She won the hearts of America with her sweetheart disposition and undeniable talent. She kicked off her 2018 national tour with her friends Petunia, the divaesque rabbit; Oscar, the shy and soulful mouse; and Edna, the brash old woman.

Growing up in Oklahoma, Farmer has always been close to her family and relies on their support and encouragement. In her younger years, Farmer participated in talent-based pageants to overcome her shyness. She was soon introduced to the art of ventriloquism and decided to try it out for herself. Her hard work, grit, and discipline developed from her early days of gymnastics where she practiced 30 hours a week. After only having her first puppet for two weeks, Farmer began performing in talent shows in her home state and beyond. She was determined to audition for her first talent show, ultimately leading her to audition for the biggest talent show on television.  

Recently, Farmer was invited to sing the National Anthem at the OKC Energy FC Soccer game where AGT fans heard Farmer sing without a puppet. She then went on to open for Fergie at Caesar’s Palace on New Year’s Eve.

Farmer’s opening act is the extraordinary family band, Pelican 212. Pelican 212 were finalists on America’s Got Talent during the same season that Darci Lynn won in 2017. The band consists of brothers and sisters that honed their skills performing on the sidewalks of Nashville, New Orleans, and Pensacola. The group features 12-year-old trumpet playing identical twins Max and Kolbe, along with siblings Angelle, Marie, Giovanni, Mollie, and their oldest sister Katie, who taught many of her younger siblings how to play their instruments. Their mission is to bring generations together through the joy of music, playing songs from the Four Tops, The Jackson 5, The Monkees, and James Brown. The horn section has their own feisty version of “When The Saints Go Marching In” echoing their New Orleans ties. Pelican 212 performed at the 2017 Liberty Ball and have been seen on NBC’s Little Big Shots and America’s Got Talent.
