Before Bon Jovi rocks Denver's Pepsi Center on April 14, thousands of music fans will get to enjoy a Wyoming band!

The Patti Fiasco is a Laramie-based group that describes their style as "a wonderful combination of classic country and all out rock 'n roll."

The band's opportunity to open the show came about through a contest on the official Bon Jovi website. After receiving thousands of applications from regional bands who wanted to open the show, Live Nation narrowed it down to the top ten, and ultimately Bon Jovi management picked The Patti Fiasco as the winner.

We’ve spent years between basements and bars, staring out van windows and relentlessly running down a rock and roll dream. This is an incredible honor for our band and a testament to our families, friends, and fans for their unrelenting support. While it’s difficult to express the incomprehensible joy and excitement we’re feeling right now, you’ll feel it radiate through every second of our Pepsi Center performance. To Bon Jovi and Live Nation, thank you for an unparalleled opportunity and a night we’ll cherish forever. - The Patti Fiasco
