Hodag act "The Northern Lights" features Northwoods native

RHINELANDER, Wis. (WAOW) -

A Sugar Camp native took the Hodag stage Thursday. He's part of the up-and-coming band The Northern Lights.

Garrett Thorn grew up coming to the festival.

"I used to come here in high school, and we would catch a couple acts here and there," Thorn said. "And then when I got older, I started running the karaoke contests in the pavilion."

His band mates, Nial Hay and Mike Godwick, are from Minnesota and Massachusetts, respectively. 

They're both Hodag rookies, and appreciated the warm welcome they got.

"Yeah this is my first impression, we played the pavilion the other day. It was so fun everyone was so nice, so responsive," said Hay.
