Wykoff will have live music Saturday night, courtesy of the Wykoff Fire Department.

Gregg Hall and the Wrecking Ball will perform at the Wykoff Volunteer Fire Department’s Fall Fest dance slated to take place in the fire hall on the evening of Saturday, Sept. 23, according to Cheyanne Baker, who’s helping to organize the dance.

“This is the first band in Wykoff in a while, and it’ll be a good way to get the community together while supporting the Fire Department,” said Baker.

Last year, a deejay played at the dance and for several years prior to that, there was no dance.

Gregg Hall and the Wrecking Ball, a country music band, originates from La Crosse. Gregg Hall, founder of Deece Productions, has been a staple in the Midwest music scene for over a decade with his bands Mitgee Evers, Smokin’ Bandits and the outlaw country White Iron Band.  Gregg Hall and the Wrecking Ball is his first solo project as he gets back to his country lifestyle roots and backwoods upbringing.  This band features Hall on guitar and vocals, Laun Braithwaite on guitar and vocals, Matt Mahlum on drums, Andrew Steeno on bass, Dan Kimpel on pedal steel and mandolin and Jonny Peterson on keyboards.

The Wykoff dance, for anyone 21 and up, runs from 7:30 until 11:30 p.m. with a charge of $8.  There will be a beer garden provided by the firefighters.

“We hope that lots of people join us and support the local fire department,” said Baker.
