Friday October 19, 2018 – West Bend, WI- The inaugural Junction 45 Music Festival is set to rock Washington County Fair Park on Saturday August 24, 2019 with festival headliner Hairball.
“Hairball has been the number 1 requested band since I came on board and I think their fan base here would agree that they are the perfect fit to kick off the first-ever Junction 45 Music Festival.” said Kellie Boone, Executive Director of Washington County Fair Park & Conference Center. “We are thrilled to offer more events in addition to the annual County Fair that showcase The Silver Lining Amphitheater; it is an asset not only to Washington County Fair Park but the entire County.”
2018 finds Hairball celebrating its 18th year of rocking hundreds of thousands of people across the country.
A band puts on a concert – Hairball puts on an event! Hairball is a Rock & Roll experience you won’t soon forget. The lights, sound, smoke, fire, bombs, and screaming hordes of avid fans…to merely call it a concert would be like calling Mount Rushmore a roadside attraction!
Vocalists Joe, Kris and Bobby lead the band through a 2+ hour, mind-blowing, and drop-dead accurate homage to some of the biggest arena acts in the world. Van Halen, KISS, Motley Crue, Queen, Journey, and Aerosmith are but a few of the acts fans will see brought to life. The Hairball stage becomes an entirely new rock concert before your very eyes countless times throughout the night.
The motor that drives the Hairball dragster consists of Freaky on the electric bass, Billy on the drums, and Happy on the lead guitar. These Rock & Roll soldiers pride themselves on nailing some of the most memorable licks and chops of all time, while adding their own style and flare that they’ve cultivated over decades of tireless performing. This isn’t a side job. These guys eat, sleep and breathe Rock & Roll!
Don’t confuse Hairball with the countless “80’s Tribute” bands across the country. Hairball is an experience, an attitude, and expression of music that isn’t simply a retro flashback. It’s a way of life, and it’s not going anywhere soon!
There will be three to four more bands featured at the festival that will be announced soon. Gates will open at 1:00 pm with bands starting between 2:00 and 2:30 pm. Hairball will take the stage at 8:30 pm. Tickets for Junction 45 will go on sale for AIS Members on Monday October 22nd at 8 am and to the public on Friday October 26th at 9 am.
