FRIDAY AUGUST 7th
Long Lake Regional Park
7 pm - 11 pm
The Killer Hayseeds have been one of the
top-drawing country bands in the Midwest for
over 20 years. The
large and loyal following
the band has created is a true testament to
longevity and their way of connecting with their fans on and off the stage. In late summer of 2011, founding member Todd Ernster
set out on a quest to find the finest entertainers and musicians that would best reflect the high-caliber professional show
that made the band its reputation and garnered it's large fan base since day one. A grueling audition schedule was set
in motion, with players both locally and nationally expressing interest in performing in The Killer Hayseeds.
the search was difficult, the selection process produced one of the finest lineups of young musicians and entertainers ever
seen in the Twin Cities. In addition, Todd wanted to offer entertainment buyers something more than they were getting for
the entertainment dollar... thus the Amped Up concept was born!
The Killer Hayseeds Amped Up is a high energy spectacle
playing the top current, and most requested country hits packaged into two - 105 minute shows! That's correct, two high
energy non stop country shows totaling 210 total minutes of music with only one 30 minute break! The reasoning behind this
concept is simple: Give the entertainment purchaser more for their money, at the same time by only taking one normal length
break, keep the customers and fans dancing and partying until the end of the night. The two long sets are not only successful,
but have been received extremely well by venues as diverse as fairs, festivals, casinos, nightclubs, and the concert stage!
