Trixter going acoustic at Pierceton’s Bar 13

On Thursday, July 20, Bar 13 in Pierceton will host an evening with the band Trixter performing acoustic. 

Trixter alum Steve Brown and PJ Farley will be accompanied by Ben Hans on percussion to perform the hits from the ’90s rock band, including “One in a Million,” “Give It to Me Good,” and “Surrender.” 

Whether you are a fan or not, Trixter is no slouch, having sold millions of records worldwide and shared stages with the likes of Kiss, Journey, Alice Cooper, Scorpions, Poison, Cheap Trick, Styx, Boston, Night Ranger, Rick Springfield, and Tesla. I’m pretty certain their only Fort Wayne appearance was at Memorial Coliseum in 1991 with Warrant and Firehouse, although bassist Farley has been in town on numerous occasions performing with the likes of RA, Fozzy, and Eric Martin of Mr. Big.

In any event, come out to relive and rock out to Trixter hits and some new ones. 

Tickets will be available at the door or in advance at Bar 13.
