Art Alexakis loves himself some Wyoming.

Art and his band, Everclear are headed to the Casper Events Center, Tuesday, August 2nd. The 2016 Summerland Tour featuring Mark McGrath & Sugar Ray, Lit and Sponge is referenced to by Art as 'good friends' and the 'cream of the crop musicians.'

I had the chance to chat with Art ahead of the Casper show and found out he has some ties to Casper. The song 'Father of Mine,' is a true painful part of his life story.

He credits his mom for teaching him perseverance and shaping the man he grew up to be.
