LANSING, Mich. — State Sen. Ken Horn on Thursday introduced a resolution that acknowledges the contributions of Greta Van Fleet, a band that hails from the senator’s hometown of Frankenmuth, to the music industry and the state of Michigan.
“Our family literally watched these kids grow up in Frankenmuth,” said Horn, R-Frankenmuth. “People should know that their accomplishments haven’t gone to their heads. They are humble, remain true to who they are, and are the same great young men today that they were before they earned this global success. Michigan wishes them the best as they continue to tour and bring their music to the world.”
Senate Resolution 116, which Horn sponsored, commemorates “Greta Van Fleet Week” in Michigan, and acknowledges the hard work, perseverance and dedication the Frankenmuth rock band has demonstrated as they rose to the top of the charts. The band is made up of brothers Josh (vocals); Jake (guitar); and Sam Kiszka (bass guitar, keyboards); along with Danny Wagner, who plays the drums.
They will be playing in five cities across their home state of Michigan as part of their upcoming U.S. tour — which includes performances in Grand Rapids, Kalamazoo, Ypsilanti, Flint, and Saginaw.
“Greta Van Fleet Week” will run from March 10 through March 17.
SR 116 was adopted by the Senate.
