Event Host, Comedian Butch Lord
Comedian Butch Lord hosts the exciting festivities taking place during the day! And don’t let those rough, brawny looking appearances fool ya! Lord’s hard, edgy look is quickly softened by his carefree and lighthearted view of himself and the world around him. His genuine enthusiasm for performing, and his obvious passion for making people laugh shine through brilliantly and endear him to all audiences!
Although Butch has maintained a regular tour schedule for his stand-up comedy through the years, he managed to expand his arsenal by bringing his considerable talents to radio in the late nineties.
By late 2001, Butch was a very popular member of a nationally syndicated morning radio show. That show was syndicated on more than 40 FM stations, but it was also on Sirius satellite radio. As satellite radio was relatively new and still finding its niche, Butch was as open to searching all its potentials and limitations as anyone. It was satellite’s most obvious advantage, the fact that a show can be heard anywhere in the country, that Butch focused his attentions on. He felt that it was potentially as bad for radio as it was good because of what Butch felt was one of the biggest reasons people listen to radio at all… being able to talk with and actually see from time to time your favorite DJ or talk show host!
Don't miss your chance to visit with Butch at the first annual Rod Trowbridge Memorial Cook Airfield Fly-In, April 10, 2021!
Live Music Throughout the Event

"Lucky People is the best party band around. They are a sure bet if you're looking for a fun night out with friends, or a private party for a special occasion. We know because we've done both on multiple occasions! Great sound and musicians, a play list that spans the 60s to today, and all professionally done. Don't miss Lucky People if you have a chance to see them!"
- Steve and Susan Kromer
