Soggy Prairie Boys Concert

In 2002, a group of high school wrestling buddies formed a band to play in the FFA Talent Competition where they were chosen to perform for the FFA National Convention in Louisville. Since then, they've entertained thousands of people at countless events in Southern Wisconsin and around the Midwest. They play mostly bluegrass and country music, as well as some original songs. Most of their songs feature four part harmonies and they play guitar, mandolin, upright bass, fiddle, and banjo. They jokingly declare that they are committed to playing average music while having an above average time.

You won't want to miss this fun and energetic performance featuring Activities Director, Jamie's husband on the upright bass!
