Fair Ads to Grandstand Lineup
West Fargo, N.D. – The Red River Valley Fair has added Kaleido to their summer lineup.
Kaleido will open for headliner Halestorm on Saturday, July 11, 2015, at 8 pm.
Detroit, Michigan’s Kaleido is living proof that rock & roll ain’t dead. The band quickly took over the Detroit scene, gaining seven Detroit Music Award nominations in 2014 and Best Band in Detroit by Real Detroit Magazine in both 2013 & 2014. Since then, they’ve busted out of the motor city and are currently touring on their latest release Unbreakable. Tough as nails and sweet as pie, front woman Christina Chriss alongside drummer Joey Fava, bassist Cody Morales and guitarists Ronnie Rosolino and Jamie Burnham, are electrifying and unforgettable.
The Red River Valley Fair is scheduled for July 7-12, 2015 in West Fargo, North Dakota.
