Downtown Friday Nights closes out another great season tonight with the Performance of Blue Street from Chadron Nebraska. The SDBA would like to thank all of this year's sponsors, vendors, and volunteers. Special thanks go out to the head coordinator for the past 2 years, Scott Temple. Scott has been active with DFN for the 5 years that it has been a weekly event, and has been the driving force behind getting the bands, sound, and sponsors all 5 years. For the past 2 years, Scott has been the head of the DFN committee for the SDBA, and has put in countless hours towards the event. Once again, join us in thanking Scott and the rest of the DFN committee for their efforts.
SDBA President Mark Kazmer will assume the coordinator role for 2016, and planning is already underway for next summer. As always, some minor changes may happen for the better, but the bottom line is there are thousands of people that love the event, and the organizers plan on seeing the event continue for years to come. A survey that is currently underway is so far showing that some changes will be welcomed and others not, and we will try to incorporate as many suggestions as is feasible. The survey (Fill out your survey here) is also showing the absolute love of the event by the community, and therefore we know that we are on the right track. We look forward to many more years of Family, Friends, and Fun in Downtown Spearfish, and we hope to see you there!

Paul LaRoche, founder and producer of the musical group Brulé, is the award-winning Native American music group, thrilling audiences with a mergence of cultural rock and theatrical instrumentations. Now in their 15th season, their national performances carry the same contagious excitement as Trans Siberian Orchestra, Celtic Thunder, and Riverdance—but with the emotional impact of the American Indian culture.
The group is one of the top-selling Native American adult/rock music groups and has chalked up impressive CD sales (over 1 million worldwide). Their concert ticket sales stand at well over 100,000 since national touring began in 2002. Brulé has released 17 titles in as many years (see discography) and has been named “Group of the Year” three times by the prestigious Native American Music Awards (NAMMYs), earning seven NAMMYs since 2002. Their annual performance schedule takes them extensively throughout the US, touring the casino, performing arts theatres, arenas, corporate and festival circuits.
Through the years Brulé has pushed the boundaries of contemporary Native American rhythms and classic rock in their genre-blending selections. Their electrifying show consists of a 5-piece rock ensemble augmented with an array of traditional Native American instrumentation. Paired with the stunning steps of one of the top Native American dance troupes, their authenticity brings a multi-dimensional art form to this cultural rock opera. The musical journey of Brulé’s founder, Paul LaRoche, adds an affecting story to audiences, and the result is Native America meets Pink Floyd in a spectacular theatrical stage production of sight, sound, and soul.
Brulé is seen regularly on national PBS affiliates across the country. Their history-making concert filmed for PBS, “Brulé, Live at Mount Rushmore—Concert for Reconciliation of the Cultures”, has become the longest running Native American concert special on national TV.
