Lakes Jam 2023 was as always, nothing short of a blast. Located at the Brainerd International Raceway in Brainerd Minnesota, this 4 day event offers many food vendors, a great concert atmosphere, and of course lots of bands which are just some things that make this location great!
After seeing Skillet many times and them never disappointing, this concert was no different. The band was tight as ever, and John’s vocals were in top form. It’s such a nice change to have a positive message being expressed at an event like this.
They opened with my favorite single “Invincible”. The bass was loud and the guitars were screaming. If you’ve ever been to a Skillet concert you know one of the highlights is watching Jen Ledger hit the drums. She really is a great drummer, and has a really interesting voice that adds a lot to the band’s sound. They also played a full set of hits including Hero, Monster and many more!
