Republic of Texas Biker Rally Announces ZZ Top to Headline Saturday, June 9th


The Republic of Texas Biker Rally announces its Saturday night headliner, ZZ Top at the 24th annual rally held June 7 -10th at the Travis County Expo Center. “We have had many legendary bands at the Rally, but every year without fail our customers have asked for ZZ Top,” says Owner Jerry Bragg. “We have been working on getting them here and are thrilled to say they will be our headliner in 2018.” The band is scheduled to play Saturday, June 9th, 2018. Tickets go on sale Saturday, November 11th at 10AM CT at www.rotrally.com. ZZ TOP a/k/a “That Little Ol’ Band From Texas,” lay undisputed claim to being the longest running major rock band with original personnel intact and, in 2004, the Texas trio was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Of course, there are only three of them – Billy F Gibbons, Dusty Hill, Frank Beard — but it’s still a remarkable achievement that they’re still very much together after more than 45 years of rock, blues, and boogie on the road and in the studio.

Gettysburg Bike Week Enlists Foghat and 50 Shades of Men for 2017 Rally

English Classic Rockers and Female Favorites Booked for GBW 16th Anniversary

Gettysburg, PA (March 07, 2017) – Back for its 17th anniversary rally at the Allstar Events Complex in Gettysburg, PA, Gettysburg Bike Week is proud to feature English rock band Foghat and premier male revue 50 Shades of Men among this year’s entertainment slate. Festivities kick off Thursday, July 6, 2017, and run through Sunday, July 9.

Formed in England in the early 1970s, Foghat has sold millions of records and rocked audiences for decades. Known for their distinctive slide guitar sound and boogie woogie rhythms, Foghat continues to this day to bombard FM airwaves with classic rockers like “Slow Ride,” “Fool for the City” and their hard swinging version of Willie Dixon’s blues banger “I Just Want To Make Love To You.” 6

And GBW is happy to welcome the best male burlesque show in the country. Composed of national and international touring Chippendales past members, 50 Shades of Men is the premier male revue performing today.

And of course that’s just the tip of the entertainment iceberg, because legendary emcee Jack Schitt will once again perform master of ceremonies duties throughout the week on the Budweiser Stage, Gin Gypsies will be slinging the drinks and this year’s rally will feature a cornhole tournament (directed by York Adams Cornhole). Expect performances by the International Bikini Team as well, plus bike builders battling for the Biker Build-Off Championship; heavy competition in the Cycle Source Ride-In Bike Show, Ride and Rodeo; the Parade of Chrome; and that perennial crowd-pleaser, the GBW wet T-shirt contest. One, two and four-day passes are available here.

And, of course, no rally would be complete without great riding, and Gettysburg has some of the best. Whether riders want to see historic battlegrounds or just hit the road for a great cruise, hundreds of miles of the best riding in the East surrounds Gettysburg. In addition to fantastic solo riding, GBW also features awesome group rides and the Pink Journey of Lights and Stars of Hope Charity Rides.

Pricing for Gettysburg Bike Week is as follows:

$35 per-person 4-day passes, available online and at the gates.

$25 per-person 2-day passes, available online and at the gates.

$15 per-person 1-day passes, available online and at the gates.

Las Vegas Bikefest 2014

With more vendors, more celebrity appearances, and more competitions than ever before—plus and an expanded sponsorship roster—the organizers of Las Vegas Bikefest have a lot to be proud of. The 2014 Bikefest was packed with things to do and people to see.

IMG_4102It started with a first-time kickoff party Thursday night at Container Park, a unique place to hang out anytime but made better with several hundred of your best biker friends. Rally Central at Cashman Center offered Indian and Victory demo rides, the Chop-In Block Road Show, the Jack Daniels Experience, Sin City Art Gallery, and tons of eye candy at the Artistry in Iron Builders corral. There were more parts vendors than ever before, including companies such as Vance & Hines, Mustang Seats and Kuryakyn who were ready and willing to install your parts right there – free, too! Events included poker runs and walks, best-of contests (burnouts, beards, bellies, tattoos, plus Mr. and Miss Bikefest), and ride-in bike shows on site each day. There were celeb appearances by Pawn Stars and Sons of Anarchy stars, and Kristy Swanson showed up to sign posters with artist David Uhl. Biker Battleground’s Len Edmondson and John Shope brought their bikes from the History Channel show, too. There was plenty of live music too including headliners Jasmine Cain, Craig Morgan and Kansas.

Cycle Source hosted a ride on Saturday and as you’d expect street parties commenced each night at Hogs and Heifers Saloon near Fremont Street downtown. Nobody needed to be reminded either that this was Las Vegas, the city of the perpetual party. That said, if you’ve never ventured out much from Las Vegas proper, you’d be surprised at the superior roads and landscape diversity on offer. The Hoover Dam is just 35 miles – quite a spectacle in itself. The Red Rocks area, Bryce Canyon and Zion National Park are within a day’s ride.

The Artistry in Iron show is always a huge draw. (See separate image gallery.) As an invitational show it incorporates a limited number of builders who judge each other’s work to determine one winner. The selection of bikes and range of craftsmanship is always beyond stellar. Rick Bray of RKB Kustoms took the win for the second straight year. The People’s Choice award went to Chris Phillips of Doomtown Choppers.

Las Vegas Bikefest is in a growth phase and if the 2014 iteration is any indication of the future trajectory, it’s one rally that’s poised to make the leap from regional to national status. Take a look through our images from this year’s Bikefest and make a note: next year’s dates are October 1-4, 2015. We’ll be there! You want to be there, too!
