They have brought their love of Tom Petty’s music and put together the best tribute band that could be assembled! The Heartshakers deliver an experience you won’t forget! Take a walk back in time reliving American Rock-and-Roll at it’s finest.
Yam Haus invites everyone into the embrace of their neon-hued, dancefloor-tailored alternative pop. The Minneapolis quartet—Lars Pruitt [lead vocals], Jake Felstow [drums], Zach Beinlich [bass], and Seth Blum [guitar]—fuse together intimate songcraft with stadium-size ambition. Right out of the gate, their 2018 single “West Coast” caught traction and eventually notched north of 1 million-plus streams. In the wake of their full-length debut album Stargazer, they graced bills with the likes of Kacey Musgraves, Tori Kelly, Adam Lambert, Bishop Briggs, Andy Grammar, AWOLNATION, lovelytheband, JOHNNYSWIM, and more. Not to mention, they emerged as hometown heroes by packing the most hallowed venue in Minneapolis: First Avenue. At the same time, their personalities shined during hilarious vlogs as they amassed just shy of 10 million YouTube views. Their single “The Thrill” gathered 948K Spotify streams and paved the way for The Band Is Gonna Make It EP in 2020. After independently amassing nearly 15 million total views and streams, playing to sold out crowds, and building a fervent fanbase, they continue to release new music in 2021 with producer Mark Needham [The Killers, Imagine Dragons].
The Rolling River Music Festival showcases downtown Red Wing and its beautiful hometown Central Park featuring a one-of-a-kind bandshell. Red Wing, situated on the mighty Mississippi River, was one of the top contenders in the nationwide “Small Business Revolution – Main Street” competition, celebrating the entrepreneurial spirit that drives the American economy.
