Local band gets 'big break' Thursday as they open during Bon Jovi concert at Xcel
WILLMAR -- A four-man band made up of old high school buddies that plays "straight up rock-and-roll" is getting the break of a lifetime.
Thursday, fourforty -- a local band that played Saturday at the Spicer American Legion -- will be playing 30 minutes of original music on the stage of the Xcel Energy Center before the Bon Jovi concert.
"For us it's living a dream," said Mark FitzSimmons, the lead vocalist and songwriter for fourforty.
