From Colts.org: The Colts Drum & Bugle Corps is pleased to announce that they have accepted an invitation to open for the world-famous Charlie Daniels Band on Friday, June 9, in Dubuque, Iowa. The Charlie Daniels Band is scheduled to perform as the center stage main concert at the second annual "America's River Festival" to be held the weekend of June 9-11, at the Port of Dubuque.
The Colts have arranged to be in town for the concert, as part of their summer-long tour that begins Memorial Day and continues full-time through Aug. 12. This concert is in addition to several other local and area performances that include a guest appearance with the Dubuque Symphony Orchestra on their Independence Pops Concert on July 1, and the Colts annual Music on the March competition on July 7. "What a great opportunity for our members and staff to share the stage with such an amazing performer. We anticipate we will perform for approximately 2,500 people in this setting, and we will be able to take the rest of the night off to enjoy the Charlie Daniels concert and the festival as well," said Colts executive director Greg Orwoll.
