A second night of country music entertainment at the 2017 Kewaunee County Fair was confirmed Thursday with the announcement that Ricochet will perform at the 100th anniversary fair on July 22.
Since their debut single, “What Do I Know,” in 1996, the band’s distinctive musical style and intricate harmonies earned them the recognition as one of the most popular vocal groups in country music, a mantle they still wear today
Now, almost 20 years later, “The Hardest Working Band In Country Music” is still going strong. The band continues to create great country music, sung with the distinctive harmonies that are their hallmark. They log thousands of miles on the road each year with audiences of all ages across the United States and abroad.
Ricochet is scheduled to perform at 9:30 p.m. Saturday, July 22, at the Kewaunee County Fairgrounds in Luxemburg.
The band joins previously announced Diamond Rio, who will perform at 10 p.m. Friday, July 21.
Diamond Rio was founded in 1982 as an attraction at the Opryland USA theme park. After undergoing several membership changes in its initial years, the band has consisted of the same six members since 1989: Marty Roe (lead vocals, rhythm guitar), Gene Johnson (mandolin, guitar, fiddle, tenor vocals), Jimmy Olander (lead guitar, Dobro, banjo), Brian Prout (drums), Dan Truman (keyboards, organ, synthesizer), and Dana Williams (bass guitar, baritone vocals).
