They cover some of the most popular music of the last 30 years featuring such artists as Rascal Flatts, U2, Daughtry and the Doobie Brothers. The band will have containers available at their shows this summer and they’re asking that people bring non-perishable food items for donation. Cash gifts of any amount are also encouraged and all proceeds will go to help area organizations feed the hungry. Airwaves will be performing at the Linn County Fair on Friday, June 29th at 5:30pm in the Farm Bureau Free Entertainment Tent.
