The original line-up of rock act POCO are to reunite at country music festival Stagecoach in California next week (26Apr09).
And they'll be joined by Eagles star Timothy B. Schmidt, who was a member of the band in the 1970s, and former drummer George Grantham, who suffered a stroke in 2006.
The festival appearance will mark the first time Poco founders Richie Furay, Jim Messina, Rusty Young and Paul Cotton have performed together in public for more than 20 years.
Furay says, "The Stagecoach Festival 09 is going to be an event. Being able to take the Palomino Stage with my old friends Poco, who started country rock music back in 1968 is gonna be the highlight... It should be a memorable day for everyone."
The two-day Stagecoach festival will be headlined by Kenny Chesney and Brad Paisley. Other highlights include Reba MCEntire and Kid Rock.
