Wood River, Nebraska- Mitch Boshart, Peru State alumnus, offers comedic relief through song during social isolation. He was recently featured in the News-Times of York, Nebraska for his musical stylings. The Cross Country High School head basketball coach performs song parodies and posts videos of the performances on his personal Twitter account.

Boshart performs church worship music as well. He is sometimes joined by his sister, Becky Ferris, who is also a Peru State College alumna. Ferris provides vocals for the duo while Boshart plays the guitar.

Boshart, who is from Wood River, Nebraska, started taking guitar lessons between the third and sixth grade. He stopped playing in junior high but picked it back up in his last semester of college at Peru State, where he was on the football team. As of Friday morning, one of Boshart’s videos had over 6,000 views.
