  • I just saw Dennis DeYoung (former front man for Styx) last week and he was INCREDIBLE … sounded great, put on an awesome show.

    He would be a perfect act for some overnight town in 2013, believe me!

  • I’m hoping for HairBall somewhere this year. They do an incredible Brian Johnson (AC/DC) and Freddie Mercury (Queen) impersonations! Gotta Love 80s Hair Bands!

  • You would need to look at who will actually be touring this summer, if possible who is in the area in July. You also have to use prior acts as a measuring stick of the types of acts that RAGBRAI ask to perform. With that in mind here are a few possibles (IMHO)
    Foreigner
    Bryan Adams
    Burton Cummings (Of The Guess Who)
    Matchbox 20

  • Some nice smooth swing music (Big Band era) would be wonderful for us older cyclists and dance enthusiatics so we can “cut the rug” during the evening hours. Cheers.

  • Michrider, All was doing was speculating, and a little wishing :-D
    I am sure I am going to enjoy whatever entertainment there is!
    By the way, I don’t know what happened but the list got posted before I finished the list.

  • Ed, speculating is good, we all do it on this forum! Welcome to the forum & RAGBRAI!!!! I’m glad your so excited about RAGBRAI. You’ll have a great time! My favorite group in the past few years was 38 Special in 2011 and of course Johnny Holms Band (read that to mean Jordan Holms) every year!!!!!

  • I would stay up past my bed time for a reunion of Molly Nova and the Blue Band. Molly Nova was terrific.
