GRAND ISLAND, Neb. (KSNB) - People can find the One Man Band featuring Marc Dobson at the Nebraska State Fair.

Originally from Canada, he performed in other bands back in the eighties and nineties, then decided he wanted to become a monster musician. He strapped nine different instruments onto his back and became The One Man Band traveling show 11 years ago.

Dobson’s back doesn’t get hurt carrying all those instruments because it’s made him physically stronger by doing it for so long.

“My core strength is so much stronger that I have almost no minor back pain anymore,” Dobson said. “However, when I’ve done the set I can burn out muscles and get tired. I want to sit down or all that but I’m a healthy individual, healthier individual now because I do this.”

This is Dobson’s fourth time at the fair because he really enjoys interacting with Nebraskans.

“This is a great fair with a lot of awesome people,” Dobson said. “They remember me here and they come up and ask me questions about how I’m doing and all that, so I’m glad to be back in familiar territory.”
