Recently voted the best Celtic band in the world, The Rogues took the stage at this years the annual Riverssance festival in Sioux City. And The Rogues have quite the following when it comes to their fans, one couple flew all the way to Sioux City from Maryland just to see them play.
"We've done it before. We've gone to Michigan, we've gone to Indiana. Those are probably the farthest ones prior to now. Our main discussions was are we going to fly or drive," said Kimberly Harris, from Clinton Maryland.
Self-declared super fans the Harris' say it's the band's interaction with each other and the audience that is one of their favorite parts.
"Yea we're funny. That lady just said, wow you guys are funny, that's a big part of your show... and I said yea, we're just trying to stay warm. Haha," said band member Nelson Stewart.
The half American, half Canadian band members have been playing together for more than a decade and they say it's the places they go and people they meet that make it the best gig in the world.
"These guys are progressive. I love that. It's a little comedy, it's entertaining, its fun,"said Wayne Higgins, Branson Missouri.
After the fair, the Rogues head back to the east coast, then the United States Navy is flying the band to the Japan to play for the troops overseas.
