The Sweet, a band born in England, will rock the house at the Woodstock Fair on Saturday at 2:30 p.m. The band is known for such classics as “The Ballroom Blitz,” “Little Willy” and a song that experienced a rebirth in the movie, “Guardians of the Galaxy”, “Fox on the Run.” Following The Sweet will be the heavy metal band, Skid Row, at 8 p.m. Skid Row soared to the top of the charts in the 90’s with hit songs such as “18 and Life” and “I Remember You.” By 1996, the band had sold over 20 million albums worldwide.
