Minn. music is center stage at Festival Rialto
The members of Wild Horses joined "Centerstage Minnesota" to talk about Festival Rialto, which they helped to curate.
GRAND RAPIDS — Wild Horses are one of seven different Minnesota-based band or musicians who will perform Saturday, June 3, at Festival Rialto.
The festival takes place at Rapids Brewing Co., and Wild Horses helped the brewery to curate the lineup. KAXE/KBXE is a co-sponsor of the outdoor concert.
“We’re pretty proud of the music that comes out of Minnesota, and we’re also proud of our town too,” said band member Jed LaPlant. “To join the two is kind of a neat opportunity.”
LaPlant, along with bandmates Ariana LaPlant, McKeon Hugh Roberts and JJ Snell, joined Centerstage Minnesota to talk about the festival.
The lineup they played a role in selecting showcases musicians from around the state. Erik Koskinen is based in Cleveland, Minnesota (near Mankato), Good Morning Bedlam in the Twin Cities, Kelley Smith from Brainerd/Baxter, and Drew Peterson from Zimmerman (near Elk River).
Joining Wild Horses in representing Grand Rapids will be the Grand Rapids High School Jazz Band and Ken & Chris.
