Foghat, Quiet Riot booked for fair’s rock concert

Casey Donahew added as special guest with Old Dominion Aug. 19

    This year’s entertainment lineup for the Chase County now stands complete with the announcement of performers at this year’s Classic rock concert and an addition to the country concert.
    Classic rock group Foghat will headline the Rock show Friday, Aug. 18, with another rock classic, special guests Quiet Riot.
    On the country bill Saturday, Aug. 19, country favorite Casey Donahew will appear as a special guest for the headliner, Old Dominion.
    Rock fans will be treated to  an intense performance with incredible energy and musicianship when Foghat takes the stage.
    Foghat’s live performances show why the band is still around today and why they will be able to keep on rockin’ as long as they want.
    This band is truly timeless and secured their place in rock history with eight Gold records, one Platinum record and a Double-Platinum record.
    The iconic band is rocking just as hard as they did decades ago and with rock anthems such as “Slow Ride,” “Fool For the City,” and “I Just Want to Make Love.”
    They draw audiences of all ages, from the young kids who play Guitar Hero III and know all of the lyrics to “Slow Ride,” to the generation of 30-40 somethings and to the “boomers” who bought Foghat’s first vinyl or 8 track.
    The band formed in 1971 and Drummer Roger Earl, a founding member of the band, has ensured that Foghat’s musical legacy continues on.
    Earl’s joined by lead vocalist/rhythm guitarist Charlie Huhn, who has played with Ted Nugent, Gary Moore & Humble Pie; and lead/slide guitarist Bryan Bassett, who played with Wild Cherry and Molly Hatchet. Bass player Craig Macgregor has been with the band since the ’70s.
    Their 2016 album, “Under the Influence,” featured a special 40th anniversary rendition of “Slow Ride.”
Quiet Riot
    Quiet Riot owns its own rock legacy as one of America’s heavy metal phenomenons dating back to 1973.
    The band is ranked at No. 100 on VH1’s 100 Greatest Artists of Hard Rock.
    Their 1983 breakthrough album, “Metal Health,” is known for being the first heavy metal album to top the Billboard album chart.
    The band continued to tour until the death of their lead singer in 2007.
    In 2010, long-time band member, drummer Frankie Banali, revived the band, along with another long-time member, bassist Chuck Wright.
    Quiet Riot might best be known for their songs, “Metal Health” and  “Cum on Feel the Noize.”
