Classic rock group The Guess Who will co-headline with Blood, Sweat, and Tears at the Washington County Fair this Saturday, July 26th at 5pm. The fair was scrambling to find a replacement headliner after blues rock group ZZ Top cancelled their tour stop on Monday after bassist Dusty Hill required surgery for kidney stones.
The Guess Who is best known for their top-40 hits "American Woman", "No Sugar Tonight", and "No Time". The group had a successful run in the 1960's and 1970's with five gold and three platinum records. The band regularly tours and consists of original members Jim Kale and Garry Peterson.
Grammy award winning group Blood, Sweat, and Tears is known for their live performances and unique blend of jazz, blues, classical, and folk music. Songs like "Spinning Wheel", "You've Made Me So Very Happy", and "And When I Die", helped the group win a Grammy for Album of the Year with their self-titled record beating out The Beatles "Abbey Road".
"We are thrilled to announce this show," said Sandy Lang, Executive Director/Fair Manager for the Washington County Fair Park & Conference Center. "Each year we work to present a diverse entertainment lineup that represents a variety of musical styles. With these additions, we hope that everyone who had planned on coming to the show on Saturday joins us for a night of fantastic songs and energy."
