Rockapalooza 2011

Jackson, MI, May 2, 2011 (Washington Bangla Radio / PRLog) May 01, 2011 – 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.
