Four Seasons Festival Bands Booked

As I previously indicated, the Polk City Four Seasons Festival planning is well underway.  There is a lot of work that is done by a great group of volunteers, and I believe it pays off in producing a Festival that is second to none.  An important component of the Festival is the bands that perform.  The bands and the beer garden help create an entertainment opportunity for our community.  We are extremely happy to announce that we have booked Standing Hampton for Friday night and Toaster for Saturday night.

Standing Hampton

Standing Hampton has performed at the Festival several times and has always been a success.  Standing Hampton is Iowa’s premier 70s/80s, power pop, classic rock cover band! For over thirteen years, Standing Hampton has been entertaining Classic Rock fans across the Midwest, performing at countless festivals, town celebrations, casinos, special events, and clubs. In addition Standing Hampton has shared the stage with many national acts including Rick Springfield, Cheap Trick, Eddie Money, Night Ranger, Little River Band, April Wine, Head East, Firehouse, and Janey Lane.

Toaster: This five member band can pull off material with complex vocal harmonies (think Journey or Queen), and technically challenging songs by Rush and Styx, all while running around the stage and nearly injuring one another. The goal is to entertain with great music, lively stage antics, and the occasional witty joke. You will often hear a song that you love, but haven’t heard in years.

Established in 1993, Toaster has gone through many personnel changes, finally settling into the current line-up. The band has fought it’s way to the top of the Iowa’s music scene and has been privileged to perform in the company of many famous touring acts: The Fixx, .38 Special, Loverboy, The Little River Band, Ratt, Jefferson Starship, Great White, and Quiet Riot are a few names you may recognize.

PCDC was established to encourage a proactive business environment that results in a diversified and balanced smart growth of Polk City’s economic base and improves the quality of life.
