We have lots of bands interested in joining us and have some feelers out. Dave Specter with his band along with Otis Clay and Brother John Katke are our targeted headliners and we are in negotiations. Lots of irons are in the fire for other acts!
And here's a map- Mapquest and some GPS were really messing up last year. The address is 4781 S. Bend Rd., Rockford, IL, 61101 and it's less than a half mile east of where the road ends at Kishwaukee Road. Go west on Baxter from I39 and it becomes South Bend Road. Many GPS units and Mapquest tried to send fans to South Bend and IL-251's intersection. It is a couple of miles further west of that location on South Bend Road.
