Charlie Daniels Band Rocks the Sioux Empire Fair [PHOTOS]

CDB 009

The Charlie Daniels Band came to Sioux Falls to play the Sioux Empire Fair Tuesday night (August 6th) and left the estimated crowd of 4000 with a collective smile on their face and an extra skip in their step.

The 76-year old country rock icon travels with what he calls the best band in his legendary 55-year career, including two guitarists, bass, keyboards and drums. About the only complaints we had about the show was the microphones on the drums being turned up way too loud and the fact that CDB played only 75 minutes.

But what a 75 minutes it was! Daniels may have suffered a minor stroke back in 2010 and he had a pacemaker put in back in March to fix an irregular heartbeat, but you’d never know it by his performance. He talked to the crowd, seemed in good spirits and was in great voice as he tore through hits like “The Legend of Wooley Swamp”, “In America”, “Long Haired Country Boy”, and of course the show closing “Devil Went Down To Georgia”.

Fans young and old were up and dancing, cheering and applauding the Grand Ole Opry star and it sure seemed to please him as well.

Thursday night, Creedence Clearwater Revisited will play the grandstand. Admission for that show will be free with your $7 gate admission.
