Ron Keel Band, Sioux Falls, South Dakota

It's great to say that Ron Keel has become a friend along with the rest of his band. You aren't going to find a friendlier bunch of rockers. On June 9, 2018 they headlined a brand new festival in downtown Sioux Falls - Porkpalooza.

The "Metal Cowboy" with DC Cothern on guitar, El Diablo on bass, Dakota Scott on keyboards and the Rev on drums always put on a great show. Original Keel tunes, deep rock classics and legendary country songs are performed with all the flash and flair of Ron's 80's hair metal background.

Local favorites The Sidehackers opened and closed the show at the Silver Spur Bar and Restaurant in Fort Pierre, South Dakota on June 15, 2018. They warmed up the large crowd, then let headliners Hairball do their thing before stepping onto a smaller side stage to keep people entertained late into the night.

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.
