THE WYOMING ROOTS MUSIC FESTIVAL Saturday – September 14, 2019
Event DescriptionThe Broadway Theater and Rock Springs Main Street/Urban Renewal Agency are excited to announce the performers for the first annual Wyoming Roots Music Festival.
The event is scheduled to take place at 7 p.m. September 14 at The Broadway Theater during the second annual ARTember.
Country fans will be excited to see local band, Wyoming Raised take the stage. Wyoming Raised is “a barn-burning, honky tonk playing, up-tempo country rock and roll band. They have had many live performances and a few complications along the way; in fact, lead singer and guitar player, Dakota Knezovich was trapped in one of the largest fires in the region last summer. He was life-flighted to the University of Utah. According to his mother, Debi Knezovich, “his cousin, drummer and back-up vocalist, Braxton Knezovich stayed by his side for a week in the Burn Center ICU.” Also supporting Dakota, the band’s bass player, Kyan Debernardi made the trip to Utah as well. Although this ordeal was a setback to the band, it strengthened their passion and motivated them even more to make their dreams come true.
Wyoming Raised has written many originals and gained a huge supporting base from the surrounding communities. Braxton, Dakota and Kyan are the new faces to the music scene in Wyoming. They inspire their fans with the love of music (new and old) and the love of their state and country.
