5 PM – Spooncat! sponsored by Westberg Eischens

Spooncat! was formed in 1996 in Dell Rapids, South Dakota, the brainchild of brothers Jeremy, Jason, and Jonathon Hegg, and lifelong friend Christopher Smith. Widely acclaimed for their original horn-driven songs, the band has played throughout the Midwest, with performances stretching from Utah to Arkansas.

6:30 PM – Martin Zellar and the Hardways presented by Willmar Area Community Foundation

Martin Zellar first appeared on the fertile mid-80s Minneapolis music scene as the lead singer and songwriter of the alt-country pioneering Gear Daddies. In 2007, Zellar’s song “I Wanna Drive the Zamboni” was released as a single and remains a huge fan favorite. Now touring with his band, The Hardways, Zellar regularly sells out venues like Crooners in Minneapolis. Described by critics as “one of this country’s finest songwriters” Martin Zellar is a Minnesota music legend with songs that are “twangy ruminations on the battered egos and shattered dreams of blue-collar middle America.”
