Bo Bice Headlines “Rocktoberfest” at LoneStar Speedway on October 30
Kilgore TX (10/1/10) by DarinShort.com. East Texas is going to be rockin’ when Bo Bice headlines Rocktoberfest at LoneStar Speedway in Kilgore on Saturday night, October 30th. Joining Bo will be the sounds of two fantastic performing groups, Blackberry Smoke and Whiskey Myers.
The “Southern Rocker” style of Bo Bice first gained national notoriety from his performances on American Idol. Bice made it all the way to the finale in 2005. The Huntsville Alabama native then cranked out singles such as “Inside Your Heaven” and “The Real Thing;” as well as three albums, including the 2010 release “3.”
Atlanta based Blackberry Smoke continues to grow into the premiere Southern Rock band of America. Over the last 12 months they have shared the stage with ZZ Top, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Shooter Jennings, Cross Canadian Ragweed and countless others. The band has recently finished recording their sophomore effort “Little Piece of Dixie” with legendary producer Dann Huff (Keith Urban, Rascal Flatts) and engineer Justin Niebank.
East Texas based Whiskey Myers’ musical style was forged from several different genres of music from several different eras. The most obvious of these are the blues rock jam bands such as Lynyrd Skynyrd, The Allman Brothers Band, and Led Zeppelin. Whiskey Myers is best known for their high energy twin guitars, soulful vocals, and unstoppable rhythm.
