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!!!

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:

    • FASTER PUSSYCAT – Like A Ghost (2022) VARIOUS SOURCES - PUBLISHED NOVEMBER 29, 2022     Eighties Sunset Strip favorites FASTER PUSSYCAT are heating up the winter of 2023 with the release of new material in the form of the EP ‘Like A Ghost‘. This release is the first for the band under the Golden Robot umbrella with Taime Downe saying earlier this year “The band and I are over the moon to join the Golden Robot Records rock-n-roll family. We are super excited to release some of our badass new tunes globally – we know the label see our vision and supports the band and we feel completely at home here.” The new songs comes just a few months before Faster Pussycat are expected to tour overseas including Australia. Not bad for a band formed four decades ago and still delivers kick ass rock n’ roll. ‘Like a Ghost‘ is a track about growing up in the 70’s, listening to the radio and doing what kids do and the memories it brings back. It features Taime‘s signature vocals carrying the song through to completion. The production is second to none with blistering guitars and the band in full force. ‘Pirate Love‘, a cover of the legend Johnny Thunders stays true to the original with strong instrumentals, killer vocals and an edge to it – everything you would expect from Faster Pussycat. ‘Nola’ is a song inspired by New Orleans, a city that front man Taime Downe holds dear to his heart. When the band started working on making new music for a release “NOLA” was the obvious choice to lead with. Past year Downe and guitarist Sam Bam Koltun began working together in the studio tracking guitars for this song. And the band is also making available again their cover of Rick Springfield’s classic ‘Jessie’s Girl’ recorded some time ago. Highly Recommended   01 – Like a Ghost 02 – Pirate Love 03 – Nola 04 – Jessie’s Girl Taime Downe – lead and backing vocals Xristian Simon – guitar Sam “Bam” Koltun – guitar, backing vocals Danny Nordahl – bass, backing vocals Chad Stewart – drums BUY www.amazon.com/music/player/albums/B0BLF6SGYX
    • New video for 'Firestarter'. From Frontiers: Frontiers Music Srl is pleased to announce the latest release from Dennis Ward and Khymera, "Hold Your Ground" will be available on February 10, 2023. Dennis handles lead vocals, bass, and keyboards and is joined by guitarist Michael Klein, keyboardist Eric Ragno, and drummer MIchael Kolar, with Pete Newdeck contributing backing vocals. As has to be expected with Khymera and Dennis, "Hold Your Ground" is another fine slice of high pedigree melodic rock. Khymera has in fact built its reputation as one of the best examples of what great European melodic rock is all about: crystal clear production, soaring vocals, killer musicianship, and songwriting that reminds fans of the heydays of the genre when bands like Giuffria, Icon, and Signal were releasing their classic albums. While it started out as an alliance between Italian producer/musician Daniele Liverani and then Kansas singer Steve Walsh, Khymera developed into a regular musical project when bassist and producer Dennis Ward (Magnum, Pink Cream 69) entered the fold. While known as a bassist, Dennis always sang background vocals with his bands, so he was more than ready and willing to take over the lead vocals for Khymera when the opportunity presented itself.   After releasing the albums "A New Promise" (2005) and "The Greatest Wonder" (2008), Dennis took a break from Khymera for some time before returning with "The Grand Design" (2015). He then returned with another new Khymera album five years later, “Master of Illusions” (2020). Musically, "Master Of Illusions" followed the logical progression of the musical path that was started when Dennis joined the project and was a strong, extremely melodic release, showcasing the fantastic vocal abilities of Dennis and skills as a songwriter and producer. Mercifully, the wait between albums is a bit shorter this time as 2023 will see the release of Dennis and Khymera's next chapter, "Hold Your Ground", an absolute tour de force of glorious melodic rock.Tracklisting:1.

    • urgh both of those songs are a cheese fest. Hard pass 
    • My CD arrived. Gotta say it is one of the cheapest, shittiest packaging of a cd I have seen. It is just a double panel with a disk (no tray). No booklet, no lyrics, very little info. printed. Terrible artwork (as you can see above). Glad I only paid $17 as it isn't worth more than that presentation wise. Musically I have only listened once so far so will reserve judgement until then. Note - Jack Jones only played on one track, the lead single. But he is touring with the band.
    • Slash - 4 The Midnight - Heroes Thirty Days Out - Thirty Days Out  Journey - Original Album Classics (Journey, Look Into the Future, Next) Every Day Life - American Standard 
    • Brilliant tune... reminds me of prime MSG, to be honest. Maybe a slight 'Anytime' vibe? But a magnificent song.  But the song I've had in my head all week is '100 thousand years.' Man I love that one. I rated this album fairly earlier in the year, but with a bit of a jumbled year of listening I haven't concentrated too much on albums this year. Listening to everything now, and I have to say that this album stood out as one I maybe did not give it's due credit. Those two songs are excellent, and I also like 'Get Away' and 'Crash & Burn' of the rest. Some nice gear on here. 
    • Exactly. Same goes for Sunstorm.
