Joe Diffie
Hard Rock Hotel and Casino -111 3rd St. – May 19th, 2017- 8:00pmWith the release of Jason Aldean’s hit “1994” earlier this year that name-checked many of Joe Diffie’s twelve Number One hits, the legendary singer found himself squarely back in the hearts and minds of country fans. The multi-platinum-selling artist who dominated the charts during a hot streak in the ‘90’s may have been absent from the radio charts for the past few years, but Joe-Joe-Joe Diffie has never slowed down – writing, touring and recording a myriad of projects including his critically acclaimed 2010 bluegrass album “Homecoming,” and his recent “Roots And Boots” acoustic tour and collaborative CD “All In The Same Boat,” with fellow hitmakers Sammy Kershaw and Aaron Tippin. And now he’s back at it again, riding shotgun with hick-hop sensations the Jawga Boyz on a brand new single, “Girl Ridin’ Shotgun,” which was recently released to country radio.

DAD vs. DEVOUR ONCE DEAD- Battle of the Bands Championship
Hard Rock Hotel and Casino -111 3rd St. – May 13th, 2017DEVOUR ONCE DEADFormed in 2009, we are a band that gives no f*&ks. Our live shows are aggressive and visually horrifying. We play heavy and original metal. We do not copy or mimic any certain style of heavy music, but are influenced by all of it. We do what we do and make no apologies, and our fans love us for it. Loud, nasty, dirty, horror metal!

DAD

DAD (Dope A** Dudes) are a hip hop duo from Sioux City. With rhymes that cover the subject of being a Dad and all of the craziness and change that comes with the responsibility, they have dug out a niche that a ton of people can relate to. Even if you’re not a parent you can understand where they are coming from. The group consists of three Dads. Protige (Vocals): A Sioux City Hip Hop favorite, Protige (Mark Koenigs) has been tearing apart stages since the late 90’s. With his solo release “The Inevitable”, Protige has shown his versiatility and ability to keep up with current rhyme styles and concepts. Eboli (Vocals): A Sioux City Hip Hop veteran, Eboli (Jason Reinert) has been in plenty of groups spanning his time as a rapper, Aflikshen, Flux Ambassador and Lazer Rocket Arm, to name a few. Eboli has remained relevant and stays on top of the newest rhyme styles. Also a producer and DJ, Eboli is a force to be reckoned with. The Sound Insurgent (DJ): The Sound Insurgent (Huey Sullivan) is one of the midwest’s premier DJs with a resume to match. The Sound Insurgent has performed on the biggest stages in the area and he always pleases the crowd. A resident DJ at The 21st Amendment, a regular feature in the Sioux Falls hip hop scene and an all-around well-groomed DJ, TSI will make any party come alive.

{be} Studio, now a Registered Yoga School, excitedly announces their next 200 hour teacher training program – this time in as a 4 week intensive!

Intelligently and uniquely designed; this program will enhance any student’s desire to learn the practice of yoga as a deeper lifestyle and prepare you to teach and guide others in the practice.

One of Jackie’s greatest passions is teaching the yoga student who wishes to interweave the practice deeper into their hearts and lives. This program will be an intimate and one of a kind experience. Individualized in that it will be limited to 10 participants only in order to cultivate a deep space of learning and connection. Having a spark for the diverse channels of the practice, we will study various styles of yoga including vinyasa but also Hatha, Tantra and Bhakti Traditions. Teachers and experts from surrounding communities will be brought in for other areas of study such as anatomy and physiology, pre/post natal and other specialty aspects of the practice.

Jackie has a deep passion for remaining a student and so the wisdom that she offers is fresh and relevant; yet deeply rooted in the ancient practices of yoga. It is authentic to the practice and she holds a deep respect for all of the gurus in her life, in particular Carole Westerman and so many more.

Students can expect a wide range of wisdom that will leave them feeling confident to move deeper into an independent practice as well as guide others along in theirs. Not only will you learn on an intellectual level, but a deeper transformation wil occur on a physical and psychospiritual plane. Be prepared for deep shifts and great expansion.

Be surrounded by a group of teachers who are here to support and uplift you, a space ready to receive you and a program that is unlike any other. All skill levels welcome!

More details will be announced in the next month. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact Jackie at 712-490-7705. Again space is limited, so if you are feeling the pull, it may be time to listen.

Be Yoga Studio -1101 4th St. – Saturday, March 18th, 2017- 1:00pm

Be moved, be loved, be kind, be active, be wise…
We all crave to be more than we are. It’s our human condition- we strive, we see goals, we fail, we achieve.
But when we set goals, we attach ourselves to arriving at the outcome rather than the journey there. We focus on how our life could look rather than how it feel. This workshop is designed to let you dig deep, listen, hear the heart, plant the seeds of intention, and let them flourish and grow in the process.**Included, and not limited to: planting flowers, tea, vision boards, sunshine, meditation, exploration, heart opening, nidra, and creative expression.

Be Yoga Studio -1101 4th St. – Sunday, March 19th, 2017- 4:00pm

Kundalini Yoga is is called the Yoga of Awareness. It is a dynamic, powerful tool that is designed to awaken the entire system. In Kundalini Yoga we harness the mental, physical, and nervous energies of the body and put them under the domain of the intention.This practice precisely and consciously combines breath, mudra, eye-focus, mantra, body locks, and postures to balance the glandular system, strengthen the nervous system, expand lung capacity, and purifiy the blood. It brings balance to the body, mind, and soul. This is a classical kundalini style class and different from vinyasa flow. Also a great class to try for any yogi – new or not! Investment: $15

SOLSTICE ON FIRE

What started off as a group of friends evolved into Solstice On Fire – a hard rock/metal band based in northwest Iowa.

You think you know the Spin Doctors. Think again. When the legendary New York quartet release If The River Was Whiskey on May 14th through Ruf Records, casual fans will discover the secret past the hardcore have never forgotten. To the wider world, the Doctors might be the multi-million-selling icons behind hits like Two Princes and Little Miss Can’t Be Wrong, not to mention the classic Pocket Full Of Kryptonite. But in 2013, Chris Barron (vocals), Aaron Comess (drums), Eric Schenkman (guitar) and Mark White(bass) are reconnecting with the flat-broke twenty-somethings who scraped for dollars at the sharp end of the Big Apple blues circuit. The Spin Doctors have come full-circle.

Road to Vegas 2- Battle of the Bands 
Hard Rock Hotel and Casino – 111 3rd St. – Thursday, February 23rd, 2017- 8:00pm- 21+SCARLET CANARY

“Scarlet Canary isn’t your ordinary little bird…” – Metal Recon

“Maddox and the crew wear their hearts on their sleeve, leaving their songs dripping with emotion.” –Colorado Music Buzz

With their most recent release of their album ‘Arise’ the band has been doing just that, rising through the ranks of the regional music scene. Early tours in the Midwest with Stitched Up Heart and City of the Weak generated the momentum that sparked a number of US Headlining tours going as far west as California and as far east Pennsylvania. 2016’s Tour Schedule consisted of 92 shows across 21 states, 46 cities, 47,906 Miles and 65 days’ worth of drive time. This tour history has earned the band performances with Skillet, Saliva, Gemini Syndrome, Lita Ford, and many more.

The band’s talent and work ethic over the last two years on the road has earned sponsorships from Westone in Ear Systems and Spector Bass. Always on time for load in and ready to throw down the band is fronted by the powerful vocals of Hannah Maddox which takes female fronted rock right up to the edge of metal. Deep driving toms and down-tuned guitars with riffs inspired by pop punk and metal core back Hannah’s hard rock driven vocals where it is not uncommon for her to scream at a climatic bridge.

“Arise” was produced by Martin Schroeder of No Heart Studios and had a peak chart position in the top 50 on Radio Contraband’s ‘Under the Radar’ charts in 2016. You can hear Scarlet Canary’s music played on FM Stations from Idaho to Wisconsin. Scarlet Canary’s music can also be found on Pandora, Spotify, Apple Music, and all other major online retailers.

The Brothers’ Osborne
Hard Rock Hotel and Casino – 111 3rd St. – Friday, February 24th, 2017- 8:00pmYears before they climbed the country charts with songs like “Stay a Little Longer” and “Rum,” the Brothers Osborne grew up in Deale, Maryland, a small fishing town on the Atlantic seaboard. It was a cozy place, filled with blue-collar workers who made their living on the water. During the weekends, many of those workers would head over to the Osborne household, where a series of loose, all-night jam sessions filled the Maryland air with the sounds of Bob Seger, Hank Williams, Tom Petty and George Jones.

The Osborne siblings strummed their first chords during those jam sessions. From the very start, TJ Osborne was the brother with the voice. He sang in a thick, low baritone, crooning like Johnny Cash long before he was even old enough to drive. Older brother John, on the other hand, was the family’s guitar shredder, his fingers capable of down-home bluegrass licks, arena-worthy rock riffs, country twang, and everything in between. Combined, the two Osbornes could play everything from traditional country music to rock & roll, creating a broad, full-bodied sound that would eventually fill the 11 songs on their major-label debut, Pawn Shop.

Like its title suggests, Pawn Shop offers a little bit of everything. There’s bluesy slide guitar, country duets, southern rock solos, harmonies, and plenty of groove. The hooks are big, the guitars are loud, and the songs — every last one of them co-written by the Osbornes, who reached out to award-winning songwriters like Shane McAnally and Ross Copperman for help —introduce a duo whose music bridges the gap between the mainstream and the alternative world.

Their unique path has already led the band toward the upper half of the country charts. “Rum” got them there first, mixing the feel-good sunshine of a beach tune with a far more realistic storyline. There’s no actual beach in “Rum,” after all. Instead, Brothers Osborne turn the song into a tribute to the simple pleasures that their Maryland hometown offers: friends, good weather, and the occasional drink.

A similar theme runs throughout “Dirt Rich” and “Pawn Shop,” two songs that stress the importance of appreciating what you’ve got. Pawn Shop dishes up plenty of love songs, too, from “Loving Me Back” — an old-school country duet featuring vocals from Lee Ann Womack — to “Stay a Little Longer,” the band’s biggest hit to date.

Brothers Osborne, who co-produced the album with Jay Joyce (the award-winning producer behind Little Big Town’s Painkiller, Eric Church’s The Outsiders, and Carrie Underwood’s Storyteller), recorded most of Pawn Shop during breaks in their busy touring schedule, using members of their own touring band rather than session musicians from the Nashville community. The result is an album that’s stamped with the unmistakable mark of a band. It doesn’t sound like two singers, flanked by anonymous players. Instead, it sounds like a group of road warriors who’ve spent years sharing bus seats and hotel rooms, creating the sort of chemistry that can’t be faked. Pawn Shop is both raw and real, and Brothers Osborne — who, years after those household jam sessions in Deale, now have a handful of nationwide tours under their belts, songs on the charts, and a career on the rise — are no longer a family secret.

Must be 21 or older to attend.
