John Oates, of Hall and Oates fame, will perform in the Wild Rose Ballroom at 7 p.m. Saturday, March 10.

Oates was destined to be a musician. Singing from the time he could talk and playing the guitar since the age of five, his calling in life was never in question.

When John first met Daryl Hall it was their mutual love for urban rhythm and blues blended with the more rural roots of American music that created their unique sound. Since the formation of their partnership in the early '70s Hall & Oates have gone on to record 21 albums which have sold over 80 million units making them the most successful duo in rock history.

John has since recorded three solo albums, the most recent entitled "Mississippi Mile," in Nashville featuring an amazing collection of some of the world's top musicians.

When not touring with his solo show, or with Hall, he divides his time between Nashville and his ranch in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado.

Some of the duo's popular hits include: "Sara Smile," "You Make My Dreams Come True," "I Can't Go For That (No Can Do)," "Maneater," "Out of Touch," "She's Gone" and "It's Alright."

Tickets are on sale now, for $15, and are available for purchase through the Iowa Store Gift Shop at Wild Rose Casino & Resort in Emmetsburg, by calling toll free 1-877-720-ROSE(7673) or online at www.wildroseresorts.com.

Must be 21 years of age and have a Wild Rose Player's Club Card to attend.
