On Saturday, October 2, 2021, The 35th annual Carousel Ball, welcomes REO Speedwagon as the featured performer. Since 1972, REO Speedwagon has been on what feels like a non-stop tour. REO satisfies fans worldwide playing staples like ‘Ridin’ the Storm Out’, ‘Time for Me to Fly’, and ‘Roll With the Changes’, plus hits from their award-winning 1980 album, Hi Infidelity, as well as new songs. Not a year has gone by where REO has not performed live – often teaming up with other number one artists and bands, including Pat Benatar, Fleetwood Mac, Styx, .38 Special, Chicago, and Def Leppard.
As the featured performer at this year’s 35th annual Carousel Ball, REO Speedwagon joins an exclusive club of previous performers, including Usher, Reba McEntire, Lenny Kravitz, Frank Sinatra, Earth Wind and Fire, Lionel Richie, Neil Diamond, Smokey Robinson, Gladys Knight, Tony Bennett, David Foster, and many more. In addition to the musical performance, the 35th annual black tie event of the season also features dinner, an online silent auction, live auction, and exciting entertainment at the Hyatt Regency Denver at the Colorado Convention Center.
The Carousel Ball proceeds benefit the Guild of the Children’s Diabetes Foundation and the Barbara Davis Center for Diabetes to fund research, promote diabetes awareness and education, assist families in need, provide scholarships, and sponsor activities for children and their families.
