Tina and Lena are used to taking their act on the road. But for the first time, the popular Scandinavian comedic singing duo will be featured on a well-known TV show, On the Road with Jason Davis.
After reading a story about Tina and Lena in Minnesota Moments magazine, Davis wanted to go on the road to witness a transformation. Through his TV show, he wanted Minnesotans to see Sue Edwards of Alexandria and Annette Hustad of Glenwood become Tina and Lena.
He will uncover a sneak peek of their transformation on Sunday, November 21 on KSTP channel 5 (KSAX locally) during the news broadcast at about 10:30 p.m. (It will not be included in Davis’ half-hour program that starts at 11:05 p.m.)
Tina and Lena started performing together in 1984. Their variety show is a blend of clever to cornball comedy, musical harmony and spirited antics. They are favorites at corporate events, conventions, fairs, festivals and performing arts theaters.
The comedy/singing duo put on a special performance specifically for filming of On the Road with Jason Davis. It was held Tuesday, November 2 at the Glenwood Estates in Glenwood. Davis had requested the spur-of-the moment performance in Hustad’s hometown, as his show has not filmed there.
Davis and his crew filmed the duo from the beginning – from Edwards and Hustad getting ready, through the full-house performance.
“We had so much fun. He is absolutely a gracious man. Very unassuming and very wise.” Edwards said. “It was a ‘pinch-me’ experience to work with him.”
