Tonight’s mystery artists are celebrated instead of April Fools Day on April 1st in a Midwestern state.  Any guess who they are or why??

Well the location is not a mystery because Illinois is the home of the band.  Hailing from Rockford IL is not the only reason that they have Cheap Trick day in place of April Fools according to AXS. They say that the lead guitarist Rick Nielsen can get up to some interesting antics on stage that also make it a good fit. Not to mention their name, right?

Here they are with tonight’s featured song.
