Country group, Blackhawk, will take the stage in Avon on Friday evening.

I had the chance to visit with Henry Paul, the lead singer, and was pleased to find out he's just as excited for Friday night's show as we are!  They are playing an outdoor concert at Joseph's in Avon.  You might think that it's strange for the band to be playing here in the St. Cloud area but there is a story behind their performance.

According to an article on our sister station WJON, this has been years in the making.  Shane Eastman, the owner of Joseph's, had a brother by the name of Joseph and Blackhawk was his favorite band.  Joseph passed away several years ago and it was Shane's goal to get the band out to Avon.

Boomtown will open and it certainly seems people are in for a great show!  You can purchase tickets for $20 before the show at Joseph's in Avon, Bursch  Travel in Waite Park and Wingnut Tattoo in St. Cloud.

In the meantime, check out my interview with Henry!
