Three of A Kind Concert Tour
7:00 pm

Tickets on sale March 15, 2019

You may have followed his journey to the Top 2 on NBC’s The Voice, during Season 15, or heard his Top 5 Country song, “Human”, but now you can experience Chris Kroeze headlining performance live and open to ALL ages on the Grandstand Stage at The Waupaca County Fair on Wednesday, August 21st! Singer/songwriter, Kroeze is from Barron, Wisconsin, and connects with both the hearts and minds of audiences across various generations through his genuine country soul and his unique and alluring vocal delivery. He captured the hearts of millions of fans from coast to coast with his humility and small-town country boy nature. With guidance from his coach and mentor, Blake Shelton, he continued to wow audiences, week after week.

Strap yourself in and hang on, there’s more! This is one of the stops on the “Three of Kind” Tour – and two other amazing Artists will be performing that night including, Walker Montgomery! Walker Montgomery is a country singer from Nicholasville, Kentucky. Walker's love of music comes naturally; he is the son of multi-platinum selling country music star, John Michael Montgomery, and the nephew of Eddie Montgomery, of Montgomery Gentry. In addition, to his family musical influences, Walker is inspired by a wide variety of musicians ranging from Randy Travis to Frank Sinatra to Luke Bryan. Walker’s new EP “Simple Town” is available now.

And kicking Wednesday night off will be Nashville Recording Artist, Derek Joseph! If you like rockin’ country, southern rock or classic rock, then you will love the edgy sound and high energy performance of Derek Joseph. He’s opened for major artists like Trace Adkins and Locash, he’s performed at Milwaukee’s Summerfest and at numerous stages during CMA Fest in Nashville. He’s also a former house band for the world-famous Wildhorse Saloon in Nashville. He’s currently in studio recording his new EP with producer Eddie Kilgallon (of Montgomery Gentry) which will be out this summer. He’s no stranger to the stage and he’s coming to the Waupaca County Fair to rock your country! You won’t want to miss this show!

Let's Rock the Fair
Hairball with Special Guests:
Hollywood Blvd. & Kid Kentucky
7:00 pm

Tickets on sale March 15, 2019

Back by popular demand...Hairball is back for a second year! Hairball is a Rock & Roll experience you won’t forget. A band puts on a concert – Hairball puts on an event! The lights, sound, video screens, smoke, fire, blood, bombs, confetti, spiders, snakes & monsters (oh my) and the screaming hoards of rabid Hairball fans create an event – an event that hits you so hard, it’ll take a few days to recover! Rock & Roll will NEVER die!!!

Vocalists Bobby, Steve and Joe Dandy lead the band through a 2+ hour, mind-blowing, and drop-dead accurate homage to some of the biggest arena acts in the world. Van Halen, KISS, Motley Crue, Queen, Journey, and Aerosmith are but a few of the acts fans will see brought to life. The Hairball stage becomes an entirely new rock concert before your very eyes countless times throughout the night.

The motor that drives the Hairball dragster consists of Freaky on the electric bass, Blake on the drums, and Happy on the lead guitar. These Rock & Roll soldiers pride themselves on nailing some of the most memorable licks and chops of all time, while adding their own style and flare that they’ve cultivated over decades of tireless performing. These guys live and breathe Rock & Roll!

2019 finds Hairball celebrating its 19th year of rocking hundreds of thousands of people across the country. Every day it adds more characters, more pyrotechnics, more lights, more sound, more props, more surprises...more everything! While Happy often tells the audience “Today is the first day is the rest of your life!” Hairball performs every show as though it could be its last. Every night is a 100% full-on, no-holds-barred, exciting, chaotic, fiery party that has to be experienced to be believed!

As important to Hairball as the music are its fans. While many bands claim to have the best fans in the world, Hairball actually has! Whether they’re 8 or 85, Hairball fans bring an unparalleled enthusiasm and energy to the show that completes the Arena Rock experience. Hairball knows it wouldn’t exist without its fans, and takes every opportunity to let them know that. Whether it’s a pre-show meet and greet, hanging out at the merch booth, or chatting online, Hairball has a lot in common with its fans and it’s always a good time when they get together.

Don’t confuse Hairball with the countless “’80s Tribute” bands across the country. Hairball is an event; an attitude and expression of music and showmanship that isn’t a retro-flashback. It’s a way of life...and it’s not going away! Hairball has sold out shows across the country. You’ll want to get your tickets early!

And to Double Your Rock Experience on Thursday night, Artists, Hollywood Blvd with special guest Kid Kentucky will start your motor and get you rockin’ with their live performances! Hollywood Blvd comes direct from Music City USA, they are a premiere 80s rock band who have been opening up for major rock acts across the country. Making a special guest appearance will be Kid Kentucky, the southeast’s #1 Kid Rock tribute performer. He’s also just been cast for a major motion-picture film playing Burt Reynold’s part as “The Bandit” – The first 100 tickets sold for this Thursday’s night show will receive meet and greets with photo opportunities for these rockin’ openers! Get your tickets early and let’s ROCK the fair!
