AVON - The owners of Joseph's in Avon are bringing a big country music band to town for one very special night.

Joseph's owner Shane Eastman says country music band Blackhawk will perform on Friday, August 9th.

It's a dream of his that has been years in the making. Blackhawk was a favorite band of Eastman's brother Joe.  He passed away 13 years ago.  Their music is still played in memory of Joe on special occassions.  When Eastman bought the bar in Avon eight years ago he began to explore the possibility of bringing the band to the bar for a special concert.

On August 9th, the gates will open at 7:30 p.m., the band Boomtown will play from 8:00 until 10:00 p.m., and Blackhawk will take the stage at about 10:30 p.m. Eastman says he plans to ask the band to play a special song to end their performance.

Tickets are $20 in advance and are available at Joseph's in Avon, Bursch Travel in Waite Park, and Wingnut Tattoo in St. Cloud.
