Coming in March we’ve got two American Idol alumni shows at Rams Head On Stage:  On March 18 we have Lee DeWyze (winner of Season 9) and on March 25 we have Crystal Bowersox, a finalist from Season 9; and what great timing as we also just had a Rams Head Server make the cut to Hollywood for the current season (Season 13).
