Weston Frank Band
After a few years on his own, Weston Frank was encouraged by many fans and venue owners to bring back the band, for bigger events. Comprised of long time friends, band mates from pervious projects, and even a few members from "rival" groups, Weston has hand picked the band that is not only the best country group in the area, but also the most fun. You'll hear anything from Waylon Jennings to Eric Church, and even a handful of Weston's own songs!
Sorry, no FGL or Luke Bryan..... we're actually not sorry about that...

Johnny Holm Band
Leader and front man of the most widely known and traveled band in America, Johnny Holm is the most entertaining entertainer performing today. The show is dedicated to the fans, and they do most of the entertaining. Mostly impromptu, the show moves with the speed of lightning and changes direction as soon as "the pied piper" notices a lag. "Never a dull moment" was never a truer description.
Surrounding himself with the finest musicians in the Midwest, the band rocks, picks, and thunders along for 3-4 hours, almost non-stop from the first song to the last laugh.
Millions of people have seen Johnny over the years, and millions of people have been part of his factorage.
The band plays in most of the United States but most dates are in the 5-state upper Midwest area.
Ask anyone with a twinkle in their eye or a knowing smile about Johnny. They'll try and tell you all about the mayhem that masquerades as a rock and roll band.
