Cheap Trick, Deadwood, SD

Cheap Trick rocked the Deadwood Jam on September 16, 2017. The legendary band performed all the hits and some new songs on a night so cold I could see their breath. It was a great show for a guitar fan, with Rick Neilsen playing numerous custom axes from his gigantic collection. I've seen Cheap Trick several times over the years and never been disappointed.

Little Texas, Rapid City, SD

I've been friends with the guys in Little Texas for a number of years now. Every time I can catch a show I have a great conversation with them. This show was at Main Street Square in Rapid City, South Dakota during the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally on August 10, 2017.

The square was overflowing with people loving the band's rocking country sound. It's always fun to hear all kinds of rock hits blended with Little Texas' big hits from the 90s. I recall ZZ Top, Van Halen, the Eagles, and Grand Funk Railroad during this show.

Check out more with Little Texas at their website. More of my photos of the band can be found here at Chad's Concert Pix.

Hairball, Fort Pierre, SD

The Silver Spur bar in Fort Pierre, South Dakota puts on several concerts each summer on the banks of the confluence of the Bad and Missouri Rivers. Hairball performed their arena rock tribute show on June 10, 2017 for a large crowd and several members of the Central South Dakota Photography Club.

Talented Cole Allen opened the show and you can see photos of his performance here. Many more pictures of Hairball can be found here at Chad's Concert Pix.

Jade Monkey, Yankton, SD

Jade Monkey is based out of Mitchell, South Dakota and performed at Yankton's Rock 'n' Rumble Motorcycle Rally on July 22, 2017. The stage with a huge American flag above it looked great in the historic downtown district.
