Okay, I’m just gonna be honest here. There are some bands in the history of rock music that all sound exactly the same to me. You know the ones I’m talking about. Almost every glam rock and punk band that has ever walked the face of the Earth all sound exactly the same.

But they aren’t the only guilty culprits. There are three bands that I’m always getting confused – Boston, REO Speedwagon, and Chicago. Maybe it’s just me, but if I wasn’t already familiar with their big hits I would probably mistake them all for the same group. No disrespect though, I know plenty of people who love those bands – especially REO Speedwagon.

If you or someone you know loves the music of Reo Speedwagon you’ll be thrilled to hear that you can see them live pretty soon. They will be performing at the Twin Cities Summer Lake Jam at Canterbury Park this summer. Their performance is on Thursday, July 18th. Tickets are available online now.
