VAN WERT Its not uncommon for The Lennon Sisters after-show to be as long as their performance. Now in their 56th year of entertaining, the sisters enjoy talking to people who remember them as little girls on The Lawrence Welk Show.



Its amazing how many people come and talk to us after the show. We bring back memories of a different time, and people often get very emotional. We have very loyal fans and sometimes they talk to us longer than our show lasts, and we honor that, said Kathy Lennon, one of three singing Lennons.



But its not just Welk fans who know the singing sisters.



Weve got a whole bunch of new fans. They found us on You Tube, and now we have fans across the world, Lennon said. Additionally, the family has gained new fans from performances at the Andy Williams Moon River Theater in Branson, Mo.



And for the Sisters, every show is a nice blend of reminiscing and making new memories.



We think this is a wonderful variety show. Its a multi-media show with lots of clips through the years. We sing a variety of songs, including a '60s medley, which is something Mr. Welk would never let us do. Its a fun, fun show with lots of memories. We do a lot of visiting on stage, and even bring out chairs to sit with the audience. Its just fun, Lennon said.



This version of the Lennon Sisters does have a swap-out of a few sisters who have retired, now replaced by others from the family of 12.



Its a nice blend. Maybe because were family, but our voices have a similar sound. Were like the Osmonds, were interchangeable, Lennon said.
