Sweet September!


Sweet September is here!  It’s almost Fall & that is my favorite season.  2019 has been my busiest season ever out of all 40 years!  Speaking of 40 years…  My ‘Terry Wayne Sanders 40th Anniversary ~ Homer Lee & Friends Farewell Show’ was SOLD~OUT 3 weeks in advance & was the best show we’ve ever done!  Love ~ Laughter ~ & Tears, but well worth the hard work!  

40th anniversary

No, I have not & will not retire, “Farewell” meant that I wanted all my fans, friends, & family  to know that sometimes we don’t get the chance to say, “Farewell” & that we need to appreciate every moment that we have.  I am 60 years old, I have worked for 40 years in show business, I have my health, so I will give ANOTHER 40 years & slow down at the age of 100 when I have my ‘Terry Wayne Sanders 80th Anniversary ~ Homer Lee & Friends FINAL Farewell Show’!  It will be Sun., Aug. 31st, 2059!  Get your tickets now!

80th anniversary

Here are some highlights of the show…

My hero, mentor, & friend!


On Sat. June 8th, 2019, the world has lost an incredibly talented man, his name was Wayne Milnes! He would have celebrated his 69th birthday on June 25th.  Truly, he was the ‘Robin Williams’ of the Ozarks!  Hands down Wayne was the funniest man we have ever known.  He was the comic genius for many years, training at Southwest MO. State University under the acting Professor Howard Orms.  Wayne moved to Branson working at Silver Dollar City, Shad Heller’s The Corn Crib Theatre – the Toby Show, The Memory Makers at the 76 Music Hall & the Grand Country Square, Big Cedar Lodge, & 100s of personal appearances!  He had his own TV show ‘Sammy’s Place’ as Sammy B. Good.  How fortunate anyone was to have worked across from Wayne.   He was the master of comedy & Wayne was ALWAYS “on”!  He taught me, mentored me, & was my friend until the very end.

We will miss the love, laughter, lunacy, & legend, but what a legacy to leave behind the great joy knowing you made the world a better place!  Peace be with you buddy!  Always, Terry
