The Sturgis Buffalo Chip announces that the GRAMMY award winning Zac Brown Band will perform its down-home hits at the Chip’s 33rd annual Motorcycle and Music Festival. The genre-bending group will headline the festival Monday, Aug. 4, 2014, following the Buffalo Chip’s annual Legends Ride celebrity charity event. Zac Brown Band joins the nine-day superstar lineup of concerts, hot off the tail of their recent critically acclaimed studio EP, “The Grohl Sessions Vol. 1.” The festival takes place Aug. 1-9 and will include performances by Mötley Crüe, Alice Cooper, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Florida Georgia Line, John Mayall and many others. The Buffalo Chip will continue to fill out the festival lineup with some of the biggest names in music and will be announcing more bands throughout the year.
“Zac Brown Band is a group you can’t help but love,” says Rod Woodruff, president of the Sturgis Buffalo Chip. “It’s impossible not to smile during their performances. One minute Zac is serenading the crowd with his gentle country drawl, and the next minute the band is knee deep in a Metallica cover. They’re one helluva good band.”
Zac Brown Band sells out shows at venues across the nation, but its performance at the Sturgis Buffalo Chip offers fans something they won’t be able to get at any other venue. Guests will be able to hear the band play with a backing track of revving motorcycles reverberating throughout the natural outdoor amphitheater. Crowds are sure to feel this rumble crescendo when the band breaks out one of its unexpected covers or any of its chart-topping hits like “Chicken Fried,” “Highway 20 Ride,” “Free,” “Toes,” “As She’s Walking Away,” “Colder Weather,” “Keep Me in Mind,” “Goodbye in Her Eyes,” and “Sweet Annie.”
Masterful skill and an ability to break down genre barriers have brought Zac Brown Band a tremendous level of success since forming in 2002. The renowned group has won eight out of its 55 total music award nominations, produced three platinum-selling albums and amassed a staggering eleven No. 1 hits on the Billboard Country Charts.
