Brulé, a Native American band based in Sioux Falls, the show draws thousands to Levitt at the Falls

SIOUX FALLS, SD (KELO) — Levitt at the Falls was sold out Saturday night for the group Brulé’s return to Sioux Falls.

Nancy Halverson, executive director of Levitt at the Falls, says the summer lineup promises to attract thousands more people.

“So far this year we’ve had about 50,000 people on the pitch,” Halverson said. “We have about 24 shows left, and I expect we’ll have close to 80-100,000 people by the end of the season.”

Brulé is a contemporary Native American band based in Sioux Falls. Their show mixes Native American culture, dance and education.

“It’s always an honor to gain and receive recognition from your hometown audience, we’ll never tire of it and we always appreciate it, and we’re always honored by it,” said pianist Paul LaRoche.

Halverson says Brule’s 2019 concert drew around 8,000 people; she was planning, even more so, to come for this year’s show. Some attendees started asking for a spot as early as noon.

“We live a few blocks away, so we wanted to get down and get our seats so we could be sure we got a spot,” said attendee Tara Johnson.

“It’s awesome, they’re just great people,” said contestant Lisa Lincoln.

“They have wonderful music, wonderful people, so it’s more fun to come and see something like that,” said Lori Withy, attendee.

Halverson estimates that nine to ten thousand people attended.
