Jake and Max Hageman, 14-year-old twins from Rush City, are about to perform on stage at the Great Minnesota Get Together.
The boys won the teen division at the Chisago County Fair Talent Show and are moving onto the State Fair Amateur Talent Show. Staying in the teen division, they are scheduled to perform at 7 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 22.
According to their mother, Connie Hageman, Jake and Max have been playing music at home for four years and enjoy band at school, where they play percussion. Jake plays drums and bass guitar, while Max plays electric guitar. They will be starting eighth grade this fall at Rush City High School.
At the State Fair, the twin brothers will be playing drums and guitar to “Misirlou” by Dick Dale and “Pipeline” by The Ventures, while sporting their luau attire.
“We are very excited for them, and if they win on the 22nd, they will move on to the finals on Sept. 1 at the State Fair Grandstands,” Hageman said.
