SPOONER, WI — Save the date for this year’s Spooner Block Party – July 1, 2023 – three amazing acts will hit the stage in Spooner, WI. Headlining will be 38 Special, Blackhawk, & GB Leighton.
After more than four decades together, 38 SPECIAL continues to bring a signature blast of Southern Rock to over 100 cities a year. And at each and every show, thousands of audience members are amazed by the explosive power of the band's performance. Their many Gold and Platinum album awards stand in testament to the endurance of a legendary powerhouse.
With sales in excess of 20 million, most associate the band with their arena-rock pop smashes, “Hold On Loosely,” “Rockin’ Into the Night,” “Caught Up in You,” “Fantasy Girl,” “If I’d Been the One,” “Back Where You Belong,” “Chain Lightnin’,” “Second Chance,” and more – Timeless hits that remain a staple at radio, immediately recognizable from the first opening chord, and paving the way to their present-day touring regimen.
For more than 20 years, BlackHawk has shared a unique sense of harmony with their voices, their songs and their fans. It’s a harmony that has sold over 7 million albums, scored some of the most distinctive country radio hits of the ‘90s, and still draws tens of thousands of fans to their electrifying live performances. Today BlackHawk continues to honor its past as it forges its future, and does it all with a commitment that takes their music – and the harmony – to a whole new level.
More than 200 shows a year. Jubilant fans who follow him from Minnesota to Mexico. More than 70,000 albums sold. A new release “2nd Chance” and a state-of-the-art nightclub named after one of his songs -- all without the support of a major record label. GB Leighton, a band named after one of the regions’ most incendiary live performers and consistently solid songwriters, Brian Leighton. Through almost three decades and fourteen albums, Leighton and his band have been tearing up rock clubs, festivals and even a few fan’s living rooms with a slew of songs that connect with the heart and couples singing along out on the dance floor. “A man of the people” is a phrase usually reserved for statesmen and politicians, but for Leighton, it’s a fitting description when you see him in action working a crowd.
“The crew from the Spooner Block Party is looking forward to its third great year. We continue to grow & bring big names to Spooner. We are very excited for the 2023 lineup and hope to see you there,” said Amy Greenfield, the head of the Spooner Block Party Committee.“ Early bird tickets will be available online at SpoonerBlockParty.com on September 23, 2022 at Noon – see you on July 1st, 2023 Block Party Fans!”
