This page lists all the performers in the annual "Oshkosh Through the Years: A Musical Journey" benefit variety show presented at the Grand Opera House by the Oshkosh Mid Morning Kiwanis. Unfortunately, because of the copyrighted canned background music for all performers except Aaron Baer and Randy Hedge, an "Original Cast Recording" of these performances can never be sold. Therefore, Aaron Baer is the only listed performer who is known to ever have appeared on any recording of any kind.
It is unknown whether or not similar variety shows featuring business people, politicians, lawyers, clergy, etc. has ever been performed anywhere else in Wisconsin.
