Fans of Emblem3, a musical trio that found fame on reality television, can see their favorite band for free this summer at the California Mid-State Fair.

The group, which consists of brothers Keaton and Wesley Stromberg and friend Drew Chadwick, gained a national following after finishing fourth on the Fox reality competition “The X Factor” in 2012. Now the band members are bringing their blend of pop rock, hip hop and reggae to audiences throughout the United States via its Goin’ Back to Cali tour.

Emblem3’s hit songs include “Chloe (You’re the One That I Want),” “Just For One Day” and “XOXO.” The group’s debut album, “Nothing to Lose,” hits store shelves July 30.

Emblem3 will perform two free shows July 18 at the Fort Frontier Stage at the Paso Robles Event Center, 2198 Riverside Ave. in Paso Robles.

Other acts performing on that stage include Eagles tribute band Hotel California (July 17), contemporary Christian performer Jeremy Camp (July 24) and singer-songwriter Matt Nathanson (July 26).

The California Mid-State Fair runs July 17 through 28 in Paso Robles. For more information, call 800-909-FAIR (3247) or visit www.midstatefair.com.
