We're just a month away from Thursdays Downtown 2022! It's such a fun event that I always look forward to each summer. And this year will be especially cool because of one of the performers who will be coming to Rochester, MN.

All 60 performers were announced recently but one imparticular is a group from Minneapolis that was recently in a competition on national tv! We'll get back to them in a second.

Some of the performers who will be here for Thursdays Downtown include Martin Zeller, Bad Bad Hats, and Six Mile Grove. If you aren't familiar, there are 2 stages at Thursdays Downtown with three performances on each stage throughout the summer.

So who is this nationally recognized band that will be coming to Rochester? It's Yam Haus! I know there are some very dedicated Yam Haus fans out there so this is super exciting news. They were just on the new show on NBC called 'American Song Contest'.
