As of last evening, “The American Rogues” are scheduled to perform today, Friday September 4th, at the inaugural “Big Mitten Fair,” at 3 pm in the “children’s” area and again at 5 pm in the open-air gazebo/pergola on the southwest corner of the fairgrounds.
Last night’s concert was phenomenal, to say the least. The Rogues’ performance far exceeded our expectations, and not just because they played beyond closing and then hung around to talk with their fans.
The show started with touching tributes to our veterans, firefighters and police officers. Throughout the concert the crowd interaction was great. The Rogues gave special attention to the children present, including a talented group of Irish dancers. At one point band members followed a youngster around in parade fashion as they drummed, fiddled and piped. Needless to say, Tami and I will be heading back to the Big Mitten Fair this afternoon. Come out and join us!
For those of you unfamiliar with the music of The American Rogues, if you have ever searched “The Last of the Mohicans” on YouTube, then you will be familiar with their performance of “The Gael” with the U.S. Air Force Symphony:
The Big Mitten Fair will be held at Michigan International Speedway, 12626 US-12, Brooklyn, MI, 49230, through Labor Day, Monday, September 7th.
Be safe and may God bless you,
