When I was a young lad in marching band, every song we ever played basically destroyed my interest in the band that wrote it. Why you ask? Because honking on the same notes on a saxophone in the hot beating Kentucky sun for 12 hours a day 5 days a week in band camp will ruin any song for you.

That's why. There was tons of music that we played that I would have otherwise probably enjoyed if not for marching band. The band that it most ruined for me by far was Styx. Every time I hear "Come Sail Away" I instantly get a flashback to band camp and I almost have a seizure.

But just because they aren't my cup of tea doesn't mean that I don't recognize their talent. I know plenty of people who love them. If you happen to be such a fan, then you'll be thrilled to hear that Styx will be performing at the Lakefront Music Fest in Prior Lake on Friday, July 10th, 2020. The veteran rockers will be headlining the first night of the festival. Tickets are available now starting at $40.
