The Glam Band, Helen DeBaker-Vorce to perform at U.P. State Fair

ESCANABA — The U.P. State Fair has announced the second act of its full line-up of grandstand entertainment this year, presented by Island Resort and Casino. The popular 80s Cover band, The Glam Band, will take the U.P. State Fair grandstand stage at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, Aug. 16, along with Helen DeBaker-Vorce.

“The Glam Band is made up of six guys bringing you back to your favorite decade — whether you like to admit it or not. Donning an over-the-top stage show, makeup and costumes that will either make you smile or cringe, it’s their goal to transport you back to the decade of decadence — the one that was nothin’ but a good time,” fair officials said in a press release.

The Glam Band is one of the top drawing acts in the Midwest, bringing their high-energy show to the masses. Combining an all-star performing group with the costuming, hair and makeup of the 80s “Glam Metal” era creates a multi-sensory experience for those in the audience.

“We’re also looking forward to welcoming Escanaba native, Helen DeBaker-Vorce, back to the Grandstand stage. She last performed at the UPSF in 2021, and has participated in many country music singing contests throughout her career. DeBaker-Vorce won first place awards performing at the “Wrangler Country Showdown” for her singing and songwriting talents,” officials said.
