38 Special’s show in Beaver Dam on August 19 promises to be explosive and engaging.  Their signature rock sound has been entertaining fans for more than thirty years.  Their show will include classic hits and new material from the band.  Their career has included popular releases, such as “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’” and “Second Chance”.

Beaver Dam is just one stop along more than one hundred cities this year – and every year.  Dodge County Fair is just a short drive from Madison, Milwaukee and the Fox Valley area.

The band has received multiple honors, including gold and platinum albums.

Don Barnes, lead singer of 38 Special, recently released his long-awaited solo album in June.  “Ride the Storm” was recorded in the Eighties, but the album was never released – until now.  The anticipated album features ten tracks, featuring top-rated musicians Dan Huff, Alan Pasqua (Giant), Jeff and Mike Porcaro (Toto), Jesse Harms and Denny Carmassi (Heart) to name a few. Listeners will enjoy these long-awaited songs with newly re-mastered technology.
