This year marks the 68th Annual Show of the Fort Dodge Harmony Brigade in Fort Dodge, IA. The group will be entertaining the audience with a musical road trip called Hog Wild Harmony.

Inspired by the very popular movie, Wild Hogs, the Fort Dodge Harmony Brigade has assembled music that depicts the chorus singing of places they travel and the comical situations they encounter along the way.

The program will include "Bringing Back Those Good Old Days", "Standing on the Corner", "Mississippi Squirrel Revival", "Old Saint Louieā€, parodies, and other familiar songs.

"Our chorus will be signing and entertaining the audience with the songs and story we will be telling," says Jack Weber, Fort Dodge Harmony Brigade Member. "The Biker Theme fits perfectly with the musical selections of the program."

The performance will include two guest quartets. Forefront is from Columbus, Ohio and the 2014 International Quartet Silver Medalist. The quartet has traveled extensively since forming in 2009. The group prides themselves in providing the audiences with great music, artistry, and performance energy.
