The Delaware County Fair is pleased to announce that local touring act 17Candle will open VIP Night at the Fair Friday, July 16. 17Candle is a 6-piece pop/rock band with powerful vocals, melody-laden hooks, and heart-felt lyrics driven by colorful guitar licks and infectious beats. Formed in 2001 on the campus of the University of Northern Iowa, the band’s raw talent and explosive live show quickly gained them a loyal following in the Iowa college scene.

In the winter of 2009, 17Candle returned to the studio to record their first full-length album, Californ-IA. The band received numerous accolades from critics across the Midwest, and invitations to perform at regional and national events, most notably headlining the 2010 Capital One Bowl All-American Halftime Show.

17 Candle

Wednesday, September 2nd, 2009

A week or so ago Beau Timmerman, of Strawberry Point, stopped by with a copy of his band’s, 17 Candle, new CD,Californ-IA. First, Yeah! 17 Candle found its way back together. They are dynamite.

Beau in his always polite and somewhat understated manner explained how excited he is for the release of Californ-IA. It is upbeat & fun, pure and simple. Simple is not however, how he describes the effort that went into production. This group of five, a mixed group by day: 1chiropracter, 1 graphic artist, 1 Homeland Security employee & 1 concrete guy, hit it hard this past spring for many weeks. The group reunited at Catamount Recording Studio, in Cedar Falls, IA, under the supervision of Producer, Tom Tatman. They took their time to carefully composed a CD that is downright well-done.

According to Beau, “We are happy and satisfied.” In my opinion it is maybe reminiscent of Third Eye Blind …and in any case it makes you want to dance! The band’s sense of humor certainly shines through.
