Chris Kroeze’s Back at the PAC! The Arts Council of South Wood County is thrilled to bring back Chris Kroeze and his full band on Friday, March 24, at 7:30 p.m., at the Performing Arts Center of Wisconsin Rapids. Amazing acoustics in this venue result in the perfect concert experience for this group. They’re back by popular demand and ready to rock the house! Runner-up on NBC’s The Voice several seasons ago, Kroeze won the crowd over with his humble, down-home country style. Hailing from Barron, Wisconsin, the pull of small-town life and the passion for music never left as Kroeze turned into one of the top country musicians in the Midwest. Kroeze has developed a large military fan base as well and is a recipient of the Red Cross Community Hero Award as a result of regularly entertaining military troops. A small-town boy who loves the outdoors through and through, Kroeze still lives in Barron with his wife and can’t imagine raising their two children anywhere else.
