Strugis Road Show: Harrisburg Biker Rally

Sturgis On The Road

For decades Sturgis, S.D., has been heralded as the location of the "Mecca" of all motorcycle rallies. Held on the first full week of August since 1938, Sturgis Rally Week has been drawing motorcycle enthusiasts from all over the world to participate in a week chock full of motorcycle revelry.

At the center of Sturgis mania stands the Legendary Buffalo Chip, Sturgis’ premier entertainment and travel destination. Holding true to the concepts of freedom, camaraderie, music, and motorcycling, for 30 years the Legendary Buffalo Chip has succeeded in offering guests the most authentic Sturgis experience around.

Attending Sturgis and visiting the celebrated grounds of the Legendary Buffalo Chip has been number one on the biker bucket list for decades, but many have still been unable to make it to the legendary event. So what if Sturgis came to you instead?

Looking to take the spirit of Sturgis on the road to those who have yet to experience it first hand, a number of Sturgis institutions including the Legendary Buffalo Chip and Loud American Roadhouse, have partnered with promoter, Motoring USA and the Eastern Regional Harley-Davidson Dealers Association (EHDDA) to officially take Sturgis on the road.

The motorcycle industry’s traveling salute to the one and only Sturgis Motorcycle Rally, the Sturgis Road Show will be making its way to the Pennsylvania Farm Show Complex & Expo Center in Harrisburg, Pa., from April 15-17 and will include an array of concerts, food, motorcycling sponsor and vendor displays, art presentations, custom and vintage motorcycles, competitions, motorcycle memorabilia and more.

One of the highlights of the Sturgis Road Show is the array of once-in-a-lifetime concerts on the Legendary Buffalo Chip Main Stage. Since 1981 the Legendary Buffalo Chip has proven itself as the heart of Sturgis Rally Week and has offered guests an unbelievable line up of musical all-stars. The Buffalo Chip now brings the most authentic music festival in motorcycling to the Sturgis Road Show.

At a recent press conference at the Pennsylvania Farm Show Complex and Expo Center in Harrisburg, PA, John Detrick, CEO of Motoring USA announced recent additions to the Legendary Buffalo Chip’s musical lineup including Tesla, Styx and Canadian rock band, Bachman Turner.

American hard rock band Tesla, was formed in Sacramento, CA in 1984 and have sold an impressive 14 million albums in the United States alone. Often referred to as heavy metal and blues metal, Tesla has released such hits as 80’s power ballad, "Love Song" as well as "Gettin’ Better" and "Modern Day Cowboy" and "Stir it Up."

Styx is a legendary American rock band that became well-known in the 70’s and 80’s for their unique melding of progressive rock, hard-hitting guitar rock and phenomenal ballads. Best known for hits such as "Lady", "Come Sail Away", and "Mr. Roboto", Styx rose to rock stardom in the 80’s and is still in a league all their own.

Bachman & Turner known for their stripped down blue collar rock & roll have achieved 120 platinum, gold and silver discs in their career. Creating a huge fan base that has successfully weathered the sands of time, Bachman & Turner are reuniting after more than 20 years apart to play a number of their biggest hits including "Takin’ Care of Business", "You Ain’t Seen Nothin’ Yet" and "Four Wheel Drive."
