Vangaard, a rock and blues group from St. Cloud, will play first with Kurt Schmitz from Brewster on vocals and rhythm guitar.

80hD will wrap up the night with music featuring Brewster’s Matt Tennessen on lead vocals.

“It’s more hard rock, but we play kind of everything from Johnny Cash to classic rock,” Tennessen said of 80hD’s style. “We even throw in some modern pop songs with our own take on them.”

Tennessen said he’s excited to perform in his hometown of Brewster, and while it might not seem significant to some, it’s important to him.

“It’s going to be special,” he said. “It’s one of those things that’s always been in the back of my head, and I’m really looking forward to it. Every time we play down in that area, everyone is so receptive, and the guys in the band love it.”

The festivities will conclude Sunday with a medallion hunt in the city park sunrise and the Brewster Fire Department Relief Association Annual Pancake Breakfast in the Legion hall from 8:30 to 11:30 a.m.
