The National Pork Producers Council (NPPC) has announced the entertainment for MusicFest, the social highlight of World Pork Expo. From 3:30 p.m. to 8 p.m., June 9, Expo attendees can enjoy roasted pork and refreshments while listening to music performed by Highway 101, Papa Doo Run Run, and Tony Valdez & the Retro Rockets at the Iowa State Fairgrounds in Des Moines, Iowa.
GRAMMY Awards nominee Highway 101 blends country roots with rock 'n' roll energy as it performs chart-topping hits like, "Somewhere Tonight," "Cry, Cry, Cry" and "Who's Lonely Now." The band has been named Vocal Group of the Year twice by both the Academy of Country Music and the Country Music Association.
Best known for its classic hit, "Be True to Your School," Papa Doo Run Run specializes in music from the mid-1960s to mid-1970s. This Grammy-nominated group has delighted audiences with its surfer sound as Disneyland's celebrity house band for 15 years, while on tour with Jan & Dean, and now at World Pork Expo.
Tony Valdez & the Retro Rockets also specialize in classic rock 'n' roll, engaging audiences as they perform "Under the Boardwalk," "Heard it Through the Grapevine" and other favorites from the late-1960s through the 1970s.
