Every year we hold our Taste of Country Risers competition to determine who will open the Taste of Country concert in the summer. This year, it was held at Stir Nightclub at the Seneca Niagara Resort and Casino and, unlike in past years, the acts had to have a full band to compete rather than an acoustic set.

It was a VERY CLOSE competition between:

The Zachary Lee Band

Kevin Mikula and the Noblemen

Danny Minogue

Brianna Blankenship

Savannah Swatland & NY Rockin Rodeo

The judges narrowed it down to the final 2 bands:

Danny Minogue

The Zachary Lee Band

In one of the closest votes ever, Danny Minogue won the TOC Risers competition and will open the 2023 Toyota Taste of Country!

Thank you to all the bands that competed! They truly all could be opening TOC 23.

Now, when will we be announcing the full lineup? Stay tuned to Clay and Company for the official announcement. We hope you'll be our Valentine 😉.
