Back Home Boys - Friday August 19th 9 pm - Entertainment Tent
The Back Home Boys formed in 1994 as a 3-piece group. Over the years the band has grown into one of Wisconsin and Iowa’s premier and well known Country Acts. This 6-piece group has some of the finest musicians in the Midwest and the hardest working guys. The same guys you see play each night are the same ones that set up, tear down the equipment, and then drive home to their families. They like to interact with their fans and try not to be someone or
something they aren’t. All of the band members are from very small towns which makes this group even more unique. A 12 pack, shining deer on gravel back roads, and bullhead fishing at night was nothing out of the norm for these guys
while growing up. Although the Group is primarily a Top 40 Country Group... they can also tear it up playing some 70's and 80's Rock to accommodate all age groups and musical tastes.
