Jackyl

It’s been 25 years since Jackyl shot out of Georgia with its wild, untamed and uncouth approach to rock ‘n’ roll. Equal parts hard rock, heavy metal and Southern rock, Jackyl formed in 1991 and brought back rock ‘n’ roll back — back to its down-to-earth, wild, fun-loving origins. Full of spit and swagger — and a “dirty” sense of humor to boot — Jackyl quickly earned a deal with Geffen Records. Jackyl’s live shows were already legendary before the ink dried on the Geffen contract.

The 1992 self-titled debut album went platinum and featured notable rock radio hits like “Down On Me,” “When Will It Rain,” “I Stand Alone” and, most notably, “The Lumberjack,” during which vocalist Jesse James Dupree performed a chain-saw solo. Dupree’s chain-saw escapades on album and in concert became one of many Jackyl trademarks. With the release of ‘Jackyl’ hit the road and barely left it since. Just long enough to record new albums. Touring mates in those early days included Aerosmith, Kiss, ZZ Top, Ted Nugent and Damn Yankees. 1993 saw “Mental *@%.!” featured on ‘The Beavis & Butt-head Experience,’ a compilation album of songs tied in with MTV’s hit cartoon series; it was eventually certified triple platinum. 1994 was one of the most important years in the band’s career. The second album, ‘Push Comes To Shove,’ hit the streets and went gold. That August, Jackyl turned in one of the most acclaimed performances at Woodstock ’94 in Saugerties, NY, and the resulting double album ‘Woodstock 94’ went platinum and included “Headed For Destruction” (a track from ‘Push Comes To Shove’). The live recording ‘Night Of The Living Dead’ was released exclusively in Europe on Mayhem Records in 1996.

It wasn’t long before Jackyl followed A&R legend John Kalodner (who had signed them to Geffen) to Sony Music’s imprint Epic Records. ‘Cut the Crap’ was released in 1997 and benefited from two industry heavyweights overseeing its recording: producer Mike Fraser (AC/DC, Metallica) and mixer Kevin Shirley (silverchair, Aerosmith). This album spawned the rock radio hit “Locked and Loaded,” which included guest vocals by AC/DC’s Brian Johnson. It was the first time Johnson had ever recorded with any artist but AC/DC since he joined the band 17 years earlier. A collection of B-sides titled ‘Stayin’ Alive’ appeared on Shimmering Tone Records in 1998 but the biggest highlight of the year was Geffen’s release of the best-of collection ‘Choice Cuts’ and the related promotional events Jackyl did to help promote it.

The band earned two Guinness Book of World Records citations and the designation “The Hardest Working Band in Rock ‘N’ Roll” for performing 100 shows in 50 days as well as 21 shows in 24 hours. Dupree says the most grueling of the two was 21 shows in 24 hours; Jackyl completed that task in Texas, and the shows were all done with full lights and sound. The daytime sets were 45 minutes long whereas the ones done at nighttime were between 90 and 120 minutes long. Jackyl released ‘Relentless’ on Humidity Records in 2002. It contained the second collaboration with Brian Johnson, “Kill the Sunshine.” Universal Music/Geffen Records also issued a Jackyl volume as part of its acclaimed ’20th Century Masters – The Millennium Collection’ best-of series in 2003. For a band that built its reputation as road warriors, it’s surprising that a full-length live album meant for worldwide release did not appear until 2004 with the separate release of the ‘Live at the Full Throttle Saloon’ CD and DVD on Sanctuary Records. ‘Live at the Full Throttle Saloon’ was recorded and filmed in summer 2003 in Sturgis, South Dakota, as part of the legendary annual biker rally festivities held there.

In 2010, the band completed their release titled “My Moonshine Kicks Your Cocaine’s Ass”. Staying true to their working band roots, ever since 2008 Jackyl has been on the road playing the summer festival circuit as well as many other choice, off-season venues.

Turn the Page

Bob Seger. The name alone brings back a flood of memories.

Memories of growing up, first love, parties and a time when music helped define who you were.

Bob Seger and the Silver Bullet Band truly provided the soundtrack to a generation, especially those growing up in the Mid-West. With ten consecutive platinum albums between 1975 and 1995, the library of Seger’s beloved hits is nearly endless. If ever there was a pure rock-and-roll fact, it’s that Bob Seger’s music sounds best when experienced live.

“Turn the Page – a Tribute to Bob Seger and the Silver Bullet Band” faithfully recreates all the “Classic” Bob Seger Hits.

You will feel as though you’ve been transported back to Detroit’s Cobo Hall as you relive “Old Time Rock and Roll”, “Night Moves”, “Against The Wind”, “Turn the Page”, the way they were meant to be experienced….Live, on the concert stage! Turn The Page not only captures that power and energy but is also the only Seger tribute that is daily streaming and selling thousands of downloads on services like Spotify and Itunes.

Based out of Southern California, Turn The Page has sold over 750,000 downloads on Itunes of their Bob Seger Tribute CD’s and have been featured on CNBC News as one of the nation’s top tribute bands! With over 10 years on the road, Sam Morrison and Turn the Page continue to tour the US bringing Bob Seger’s music to his fans. For a truly memorable concert experience, “Turn the Page” will provide the “Old Time Rock and Roll” that will take you back and make you remember…because after all…

Rock and Roll Never Forgets!

Tickets for the original date will be honored.

Who’s Zeppelin

According to BestClassicBands.com, The Who were riding high on the early success of Tommy when they played the Merriweather Post Pavilion in Columbia, MD, on May 25, 1969. Opening the show was a relatively new English band whose first album had been released in January of that year: Led Zeppelin. The Who’s crew had to pull the plug on Zeppelin when their eight-song set–which included “Dazed and Confused” and “Train Kept A-Rollin’” and “Babe I’m Gonna Leave You”–went over its scheduled time to prevent the headliner’s show from going past curfew. Led Zeppelin’s name was misspelled on the tickets (“Lead”), which cost a mere $5.75 – even a bargain in those days. (BestClassicBands.com)

The Who Experience (TM) Tribute Band brings you back to 1969 performing a tribute to the 2 GREATEST classic rock n roll bands of all time in one show called WHO’S ZEPPELIN (TM) ! A tribute to The Who and Led Zeppelin! A perfect match!
