Welch, Minn. (October 8, 2020) Treasure Island Resort & Casino is teaming up with Rochesterfest for a drive-in concert on Saturday, October 10. Three local talent acts will take the stage at Graham Park in Rochester, Minn.
For years, Treasure Island has been proud to support Rochesterfest by sponsoring the music stage, judging the karaoke evening and participating in the parade. Although such regular events were canceled this year, the opportunity to safely invite people together to enjoy live music served as an innovative way to continue supporting Rochesterfest and spotlight local bands.
“We have all suffered a loss during this difficult year, whether it be financial, emotional or physical,” said Brandon Helgeson, Rochesterfest executive director. “That’s why, along with a great partnership with Treasure Island Resort & Casino, we are able to bring you this concert and give you a break or a chance to get out safely and enjoy some live music.”
The concert kicks off at 4pm. Pop rock band Leadfoot will open the show, followed by reggae rock band Push & Turn. Long-time musical ensemble Incognito will close out the evening. Tickets are available now at www.rochesterfest.com/drive-in-concert.php.
