The band Sawyer Brown has been entertaining audiences for more than 27 years. They were the first winner of the show “Star Search” and refer to themselves as the original American Idols. You might not know their name, but I’m sure you would recognize some of their songs. The appeal of this group is that they preferred to stay a small traveling band. Their passion is to entertain audiences and so for the past 27 years they have played mostly small venues like county fairs. Their music is classic, but their performance, passion and energy is what keeps us coming back for more.
My sister-in-law is a groupie. She is a certified member of their fan club and even met the band just prior to their performance at last year’s county fair. In college, Anne would travel to their performances all over the region… so whenever Sawyer Brown is within “driving distance” we go. She has seen them countless times… I’ve seen them probably 4 or 5 times and it’s always worth the effort. It’s a family affair now. Tonight it was at the Chico Silver Dollar Fair, but we are already looking forward to a show at the Merced County Fair this summer.
