Band headlining Firemen's Ball is locally grown

The four members of country-western/classic rock band Incredibly Real will take a break from their college studies to perform, but they all came up through the Park Rapids public school system.

In fact, one of them hasn't graduated yet.

Bass guitarist Dan Walsh, 16, is a junior at Park Rapids Area High School. Thanks to Post-Secondary Enrollment Options, he is also taking general-education classes at Minnesota State University Moorhead.

Meantime, his 19-year-old twin brothers Jack (the band's lead singer) and Tim (lead guitarist), as well as drummer Derek Reichling, 20, are all PRAHS graduates studying construction management at North Dakota State College of Science in Wahpeton, N.D.

"That's kind of kept us busy the last year or two, so we haven't put a whole lot of focus on the band," said Jack. "We haven't been playing much."

They live together in Fargo while school is on, but they look forward to coming home and taking part in the revived Park Rapids Firemen's Ball tradition.
