RAGBRAI Music act

Now that we don’t have to guess the route, wonder who the Register will line up for music?  They’ve done a pretty good job in the past.  My suggestions, albieit far fetched and unrealistic.

U2 -The Greatest Rock band in the World playing the greatest bike ride in the World.  -One could only wish right, possibly in 20 years?

Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers

INXS -I hear they’ll be on tour.

Eagles

The Pretenders

Lemme have some of whatever it is that you’re smoking there, cyduke.  The best you’re going to get is some retread of an old group that has maybe one or two of the original members, like Creedence Clearwater Revisited or Blood, Sweat and Tears.

But as long as you’re pipe dreaming, why not wish for the Beach Boys or Jimmy Buffett?

Wait, true RAGBRAI music has to include the  ‘Nuns on the Run’.

I do  not think the DMR  is picking or hiring or paying for the bands . The overnight towns RAGBRAI committee hire the bands and have to find the money to pay for them before one bicycle rolls into town .

gas gas is right. RAGBRAI has nothing to do with band selection. Its whatever the towns can afford.

Might as well dream big.
If one of the towns could get Jimmy Buffett to play, that would be a lot of fun…

I’d bet well see them again this year. I believe they’re based out of the small town of Danbury so we’ll probably see them sometime on day 1 or day 2.
They are very entertaining!

cyduke,

I like your taste in music brother!

But how about The Sex Pistols or maybe Barry Manilow?

And come to think of it, would Bob Dylan be out of line?

I’d love to see Dylan (a Minnesotan)… anytime… anywhere. ***Hey, mister tamborine man play a song for me. I’m not sleepy and there is no place I’m going to…***
