Recommended Posts

Well it's about that time again...Dakota Rock Fest 2010 will be here before we know it so here's the official 2010 thread!!

 

The link for the DRF website is - Dakota Rock Fest

 

Although the official lineup will not be announced until Superbowl Sunday, Warrant, Lita Ford and Molly Hatchet have already mentioned they will be playing. Also this year, they have added a few bands to Thursday so it will be a three day event instead of two days!

 

Last year a handful of HH regulars and friends were again able to get together for a near-perfect weekend of enjoying rock music, discussing rock music and drinking lots and lots of beer! Pete Fry was there with his band FarCry and although no official announcement has been made it is believed they will again be there this year!

 

Everyone is welcome!! The invitation is again extended to everyone that would love to come and partake in the festivities...if you are at all interested in attending please give it some serious thought and get your hotel reservations made now...you won't regret it! :drink:

 

The Beerbarrow Welcomes You All!!!

My wife and I will be there for year three and am looking forward to hanging Rick, Chad, Pete, Taco and the beerbarrow.

Hopefully some other HHers can make it this year and can enjoy the never ending beer from the VIP area.

I sure hope they were able to get some other acts like Tesla, Kix, Y&T, Winger, Great White, Danger Danger or even Night Ranger would be cool. I remember in the suggestion box last year there were a whole lot of Tesla's in there so I'm hoping they were able to pull them in.

 

I wonder how that third day is going to work. Will it just be the evening on Thursday and Friday and then all day on Saturday? And please cut out the tribute bands, although the GNR tribute band was fun on Saturday morning and the Aerosmith and Journey tributes were very good as well.

I wonder if Great White and Dokken will be there since they will be playing Sturgis the following weekend. Tesla would be great to see again, I think Chad just saw them play.

 

Tickets for Thursday night are only $10 so they must not be doing many bands that night, maybe two or three I would guess.

Hey, who's garage is that (Rick?) and who rides that small bike on the left (Pete?)?

 

Do you guys do the the VIP tix or the general admission?

That's my garage Jeff. We have had the pre-party there the last two years and will do it again this year. The small bike is for anyone that spills their beer. If that happens, they have to ride the little bike around the neighborhood apologizing to all that will listen! :lol:

 

We go VIP all the way. It's the only way to roll, all the beer you can drink and get to meet almost all of the bands backstage. Definitely worth the money!

That would be awesome to have GW, Dokken and Tesla on the bill!

 

I went to check out Tesla on Saturday. Jeff Keith was unfortunately sick with a cold but he gutted it out. They did end up playing a couple of Zeppelin songs with Frank Hannon on vocals to save on Jeff. Frank sounded really good actually!

 

I will be making the trip again this year for sure. No plans on who is coming with me yet. My wife wants to make it a family event but I am not too sure about that! Chris wants to make it again too. So, the only thing I know for sure is that I will be taking my place next to the beerbarrow this year! :bananamac:

 

It's a great weekend of music, friendships, fun and beer!! :beerbang:

I'd love to get to Dakota Rock Fest this year. It might be a little hard because I'm 90% sure I'm going to both Rocklahoma and the festival in North Dakota.

 

Pretty sure KIX will not be at DRF. They will be at the show in North Dakota... so that one I must go to. Besides... North Dakota is one of the 4 States I've never been to.

Dave that would be fantastic if you could join us this year! I bet you've got a ton of great stories you could share, especially about KIX & Dirty Looks. But I know money doesn't grow on trees. Here's to hoping you can work something out though. :drink:

I'm pretty sure KIX are playing "M3". And...yep, that's my "neck of the woods". I actually didn't go to "M3" last year because I knew most of those bands were playing Rocklahoma shortly after "M3". I will more then likely hit the "M3" show this year do to the fact that Rocklahoma is changing format.

 

Anyone on the East Coast here gonna make "M3"..?

 

 

Like I said... I'd love to make DRF if at all possible. I mean, come on.... a wheelbarrow of beer and a little dog named Taco. Not to mention a pretty good line up of bands.

Kix are definitely in for M3 -- as well as the return of Cinderella, and the Scorps as headliners (apparently, this tour is gonna be their last one ever):

That is shaping up to be a hell of a lineup.

 

I hope that DRF is half as good as that one.

I have a pretty good feeling it's going to be better than last years.

Vince will be fun to see even though he can't sing worth a shit and he'll probably be drunk.

Maybe he'll hang out in the VIP tent and get plastered with everyone else! :headbanger:

I saw him back in 98 with warrant and slaughter. Very fun show, won't mind seeing him again.

 

Oh, and don't post any of the mentioned bands on the DRF facebook page until after superbowl sunday or Kevin will get pissed!!! :lol:

    • I must admit my first reaction was to vote NO but on reflection, people are making good points about digital only releases and while I will not be buying those releases, there isn't a good reason to not have them on the site as long as they are clearly labeled as digital only....
    • of course they should. IMHO. otherwise soon this excellent database of music will get out of date. 
    • heard this on FB earlier. I've loved everything these guys have done, and great live. Virtually guaranteed to be near the top of my albums for 2022 
    • What is your definition of a "Glam Band"?   
    • If properly labeled as such, I don't see a problem. 
    • How old are you?
    • Yup. Meant Keeling. My bad.  Will come up with some more.
    • No issues with the health care system in Australia could be because you have been locked down for the last 2 years and haven't really had to deal with the same level of infection.....congrats, sounds like your politicians have it all under control 
    • Asking because I received an inquiry. It seems we revisit this issue every few years, but the state of the industry and opinions change, so it doesn't hurt to revisit the issue. I know that the main HH site is focused primarily on physical media releases, but as the world goes increasingly digital, if we limit the database to physical media releases only, we run the risk of being increasingly irrelevant (even more than the musical genres we love already are). I personally don't see a problem in including digital-only releases in the main site DB as long as: They are authorized, i.e., released by the band or a record label. No fileshares, torrents, etc. They have cover art, They are clearly labeled as a "Digital Release" in the listing. See this example: https://heavyharmonies.com/cgi-bin/glamcd.cgi?BandNum=53&CDName=Leppard on the Loose Thoughts, suggestions?
    • I wonder that too.  I know I saw some interviews with Ronnie where he said the band hadn't really been active much since COVID started.  But that was back when his first solo album was dropping earlier this year.  Haven't heard much since that. This 2nd solo album sure seems to suggest the band is probably on hiatus or something.  Or at the least no new material is very imminent if this is where Ronnie's focus has been.
