The Register's Annual Great Bicycle Ride Across Iowa

Route Announcement Party

2019 RAGBRAI Route Announcement Party
Saturday, January 26, 2019 (7:00 PM)
The Iowa Events Center in Downtown Des Moines

Great live music featuring the Brazilian Twins!

Growing up in the violent favelas (shanty towns) of Rio de Janeiro, Brazilian twin brothers found solace in classical music on violins their father hand-made. Their love of music and desire to positively impact the world led them on a wild ride to the United States, in pursuit of their dreams. Their live show is a hybrid mix of rock concert, dance party, audience interaction, charisma and humor  to create an unforgettable entertainment experience. Exploring a wide range of iconic songs from the past 50 years through today, the B2wins focus on offering something for everyone while performing familiar songs in a way never done before. Forget everything you know about “bands” the B2wins are redefining live music.
