4:30 - 8:00 PM
MusicFest takes place on the Grand Avenue at the Iowa State Fairgrounds from 4:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. on Thursday, June 7.
This years' show features Josh Hoyer, a contestant on The Voice, and The Big Noise, led by Cactus Moser.
Fusing soul with hints of R&B and classic country, Josh Hoyer, a native of Lincoln, Nebraska, was a contestant on season 12 of NBC's The Voice. With his smooth rendition of the Chi-Lites’ 1972 hit “Oh Girl,” he caught the attention of coaches Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani. This spring, Josh Hoyer & Soul Colossal will record their fourth full-length album.
Headlining MusicFest is The Big Noise, led by Scott “Cactus” Moser, a talented drummer and music producer. The Big Noise is made up of musicians who’ve played on numerous records and tours. Over the last five years, the band has recorded and toured with Wynonna Judd, as Wynonna & The Big Noise. All combined, The Big Noise form a musically adventurous group that brings the members’ original songs together with classic covers from groups such as the Grateful Dead, Blind Faith and James Gang.
