Weekend Entertainment | Boyz II Men and Koe Wetzel at the Canfield Fair

The Canfield Fair is where it’s at this weekend – specifically, the grandstand.

That’s where rising rowdy country star Koe Wetzel and the legendary Boyz II Men will perform on Sunday and Monday, respectively.

The ornery Texas-raised Wetzel is really a Southern-style radio rocker with a slight drawl and a lot of big guitar riffs. But somehow, he gets lumped into the country music genre.

Count on hearing a lot more of his music in coming months and years, because he’s got a knack for this stuff.

Koe Wetzel

Wetzel’s power is on full display on his latest album, “Hell Paso,” which includes the alt-rockers “Creeps,” “April Showers,” “Money Spent” and “Better Without You.”

Wetzel is also prominent on Ella Langley’s hit single “This Is Why We Fight,” a vocal tradeoff with Langley that was released in the spring. Without actually saying it, the song explains why at least one couple has a good reason to fight.

Wetzel will take the stage at 7:30 p.m. Sunday. For tickets, click HERE.

There is not much that hasn’t been said about Boyz II Men.

The kingpins of Philly streetcorner harmony have been going at it for a good 30 years now. With a legacy that includes four Grammy Awards, Boyz II Men – which has influenced stars ranging from Justin Timberlake to Usher to Justin Bieber to Beyonce – is the best-selling R&B band of all time.

The act now consists of Nathan Morris, Wanya Morris and Shawn Stockman. With their smooth crooning and vocal harmonies, they might just turn the old grandstand into a throwback love volcano.

Boyz II Men will close out the Canfield Fair on Monday with a 7 p.m. concert. For tickets, click HERE.

Tickets for the Boyz II Men and Koe Wetzel concerts can also be bought at the box office in front of the grandstand at the fairgrounds.

Other grandstand shows at the fair include the ever-popular demolition derby on Friday and the tractor pull on Saturday.

The fair isn’t the only thing going on this weekend.
