Express Announce National Acts for 2018 Season


Eau Claire, Wis. – The Eau Claire Express continue releasing their promotional schedule with the announcement of performance acts for the 2018 season at Carson Park. The Express welcome back two hit acts from the 2017 season, as well as some new additions and some recurring events on a weekly basis.

On June 8th, Bucket Ruckus makes their return to Carson Park. Bucket Ruckus will be performing before and during the game between innings. You will also find them banging on the dugout tops, running through the stands leading cheers and interacting with fans all game long.

The second national act returning the Eau Claire is the ZOOperstars on Saturday, June 23! The ZOOperstars is a unique show that features hilarious inflatable characters with clever names such as Harry Canary, Clammy Sosa, Shark McGwire, and many more! The inflatable performance combines dance routines, acrobatics, tricks and comedy in order to connect with fans of all ages.

The famous Russian Bar Trio is the newest addition to the promotional schedule! The Russian Bar Trio has been featured on Oprah, Ellen, and America’s Got Talent; they’ve toured with Cirque du Doleil; and performed at sporting events across the entire United States. And now they’re coming to Carson Park to perform for you on July 27!

Previously announced as Day of the Week promotions, we absolutely cannot forget about the weekly Fireworks Shows that will be a staple every Friday night and pre-game bands that will be performing in the Carson Park Plaza before every Saturday game.

The Express begin season number 14 in the Northwoods League on May 29 as they travel to Rochester, Minn. for the season opener against the Rochester Honkers.
