JACKYL AT ROCK USA 2014 - PHOTO GALLERY BY MICHAEL MULLENIX

AND WE'RE BACK!

In the quiet town of Oshkosh, Wi, surrounded by Outlet malls is the Ford Festival Park, where twice a year two festivals (Country USA and Rock USA) bring the best of two completely different genres, with rarely overlapping fan-bases.  I cannot begin to describe how amazing it is to see packed audiences for both these festivals in an unassuming town 40 minutes out of Green Bay.

So this year Rock USA resumed in it's 4th year, featuring performances by Three Days Grace, Seether, KoRn, Theory Of A Deadman, Megadeth, Hellyeah, Three Doors Down, Halestorm, Machine Head, Black Stone Cherry, Black Label Society, Jackyl, Skid Row, Five Finger Death Punch, Rob Zombie, and Slayer.  Over the next few days I will be publishing photo galleries from everyone, starting with Jackyl's gallery.

What makes this Rock USA great (aside from it being about 15 minutes from my family home in Wisconsin) is clearly the tremendous bill and the headlining set that every band gets to play.  With only 5-6 bands playing a day and the time between sets, every band gets about or north of an hour to play, giving them time to run through all their hits.  Rock USA is an event for the Fans!  If your favorite band is playing at 6pm they are playing the same show they would headlining at any club.  Breaking away the MainStage local vendors, carnival rides, and beer tents with local musicians playing on smaller side stages.

Without further ado, Jackyl!
