About REO Speedwagon

Formed in 1967, signed in 1971, and fronted by iconic vocalist Kevin Cronin since 1972, REO Speedwagon’s unrelenting drive, as well as non-stop touring and recording, jump-started the burgeoning rock movement in the Midwest. Platinum albums and freeform FM radio staples followed, setting the stage for the release of the band’s explosive Hi Infidelity in 1980, which contained the massive hit singles “Keep On Loving You” and “Take It On the Run,” and spent 15 weeks in the No. 1 slot.

To date, REO Speedwagon has sold 40 million albums around the globe, with Hi Infidelity approaching ten times platinum status in the U.S. After nearly five decades since forming, Cronin and bandmates Bruce Hall (bass), Neal Doughty (keyboards), Dave Amato (guitar) and Bryan Hitt (drums) are still electrifying audiences worldwide with concerts featuring their timeless, two number one singles, “Keep on Loving You” and “Can’t Fight This Feeling,” along with hits and fan-favorites including, “Take It on the Run,” “Time for Me to Fly,” “Roll With the Changes,” “Ridin’ The Storm Out,” and more.

About Donny Hartman

DONNY HARTMAN is one of the original Michigan Madmen. During the states Rock & Roll heyday (in the 60s and 70s), Michigan was generating legends like Bob Seger, Ted Nugent, Alice Cooper, Iggy Pop, and more. Donny was blazing the guitar hero trail with Dick Wagner and the Frost.

The Frost was one of, if not the most popular and visible groups in the Midwest, playing every major festival and venue....including the famous Fillmore West and East, Masonic Temple, Grande Ballroom, Madison Square Garden, Cobo Hall and a whole bunch more! They would set attendance records across the state. By the end of the 60s, Donny played in shows with Pink Floyd, Joe Walsh, Allman Bros., Golden Earring, Three Dog Night, The Supremes, Moody Blues, Fleetwood Mac, Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck, B.B. King, Joe Cocker, and many more.

He will show you the reason he was inducted into the Detroit Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. With his powerful vocals, and butt-kicking guitar playing - featuring all types of music from country, rock, R&B blues mixed in with many originals he has penned. Don't miss Donny Hartman and his band, Pete and Bob Madsen.

Truly one of the greatest guitar players of our time.
