Detroit Lakes brothers Dana, Mike and Calvin Tomlinson were part of the original Sagebrush lineup when the group was formed in 1973. During its 11-year heyday, more than 20 different musicians played with the group, many of whom will be present for a reunion concert set this Saturday, July 27, in the DL Pavilion. At one point during the 11 years before they disbanded, Sagebrush relocated from Detroit Lakes to the mountains of Breckenridge, Colo. SUBMITTED PHOTO

(FNFI) brought about the reunion of a trio of brothers — Dana, Mike and Calvin Tomlinson — who formed the local band Sagebrush back in the 1970s, along with several other original band members, and their children.


The reunion concert was so successful, said FNFI founder Jeff Krueger, that they decided to do it again.
