In just two short weeks, six
Daytrotter alumni will go Barnstorming, setting off on a tour of select
barns and attics in eastern / central Iowa (and Madison, Wisconsin – we just
love that place!)
Looking back to heyday of rock and roll when no market was secondary, starting
July 25th fans and music lovers in Daytrotter’s home state (and Wisconsin!)
will have the unique opportunity to connect with some incredible acts in their
small cities. It’s an idea inspired by old show posters, featuring proof that the
Dave Clark Five, Buddy Holly, The Rolling Stones and the biggest acts of their
day played in Iowa cities like Fort Dodge, Monticello, Spirit Lake
Daytrotter hopes to start a new tradition of taking great bands to the small
dots on the map where they’ll be appreciated for their raw emotion and talent,
turning barns and rooms into magical spots for an evening.
One and all are encouraged to attend and caravan with the tour; grilling with,
camping out, and staying at the same campgrounds and bed and breakfasts as
Daytrotter and the bands. It will be five days that no one will soon forget.
All shows are all ages and FREE. Donations will be gladly accepted.
