The Spirit of Suwannee Music Park came alive for the festival, installing incredible art exhibits and even a floating holographic pumpkin for all to enjoy.Cheese, in turn, matched the festival’s enthusiasm with a three-set Halloween performance for the ages. While the first and third sets were certainly filled with standout renditions of The String Cheese Incident’s classic material, the band brought their A-game for a full second set of just 80’s covers.After a “Welcome To The 80’s” introduction, the band started with Eurhythmics’ “Would I Lie To You?” The band continued with The Clash’s “Should I Stay Or Should I Go,” before Diana Ross’s “Upside Down” had the fans really rocking. The song was obviously a reference to Stranger Things, which featured “The Upside Down” as a counterpart to the normal world. It was a Stringier Things performance, after all. Thomas Dolby’s “She Blinded Me With Science” came next, only adding to the madness of this fun set.Cheese took the set into a funkier direction with Earth, Wind & Fire’s “Let’s Groove,” before busting out a couple of 80’s rockers in Billy Idol’s “White Wedding” and The B-52’s “Love Shack.” Finally, a medley of 80’s covers, including Talking Heads’ “Burning Down The House,” ended the set.Watch “Burning Down The House” below, via Hulaween’s FB Page.Check out some footage from Stringier Things below via Instagram.

Our “Ask the Mayor” topic on May 1, 2019 was “Logan’s Law”, a bill unanimously passed by the Iowa Legislature that allows those purchasing hunting and fishing licenses to declare they want to be organ, tissue and skin donors. Among those heard on the program are House Minority Leader Todd Prichard (D-Charles City), and Wendy Luft, the mother of Logan Luft, who died after an ATV accident in July 2017. Logan family donated five major organs.
