The Copper Country may never be the same after Finnish rock legends-in-the-making Steve ‘n’ Seagulls visit the Rosza Center for the Performing Arts on Wednesday, September 5. Tickets are on sale now for the high-energy band that performs bluegrass versions of well-known rock and metal songs from a decidedly Finnish perspective.
“The group has racked up millions of views with their unique antics on YouTube,” said Kevin Manninen, one of the driving forces to bringing the band to the area. “I’ve talked to dozens of people who are beyond excited to have these guys bringing their unforgettable music to the Keweenaw.”
Manninen has been working on this in conjunction with the Finnish American Chamber of Commerce Upper Michigan, Finlandia University and Copper Island Engraving, who are working together to make this event possible. The event will also be the first event of the third annual Festival Ruska.
