Jackson, Michigan will explode with sound of screaming guitars and heart racing drums as bands take the stage at Rockapalooza June 25th
Including a diversity of Rock music with a focus on melodic hard rock and heavy metal bands that play original music, this event will be hosted by Tim Corser and the Kings of Rock Entertainment. This event will be held at the racetrack on the Jackson County Fairgrounds.
Last year 30 bands took to three stages over the event. This included headliners Sevendust, Otep and Egypt Central, with Bury Tomorrow, coming in from Southampton/Portsmouth, England. This year Chiodos, Silverstein, Sleeping with Sirens, Mushroomhead, Sore Eyes, Violets for Verona, State Your Cause, Shallow Side, Killjay, As Summer Dies, Hollow Drive, Lifeline, Oh No Fiasco, and Despite the Risk, with others to be announced will take the stage.
As Corser enjoys homes in both Spring Arbor, Michigan and Nashville, Tennessee, it should not come as any surprise to find that this lineup will include bands from Michigan to southern Florida, and points in between. "With so many bands booked, there's enough variety that anyone who likes rock music should find something they like," Corser said.
Rockapalooza started in 2008 with 17 bands playing on Mechanic Street in conjunction with one of The Crazy Cowboy's race week street parties. Since Corser has developed it into a dynamite event that has taken over most of the fairgrounds.
Comedian Pauly "The Weasel" Shore will emcee the show. Immediately recognized for his MTV VJ fame, he appeared in the movies, Encino Man, Son in Law, In the Army Now, Jury Duty and Bio-Dome. He will also do a pre-show the night before Rockapalooza. Tickets NOW available at CK Barrymore in downtown Jackson next to the Michigan Theatre.
