WAR HEADLINES STURGIS BUFFALO CHIP
War to play the inaugural Friday Fest Music Festival at the Legendary Buffalo Chip
The Best Party Anywhere™ is kicking off the party early this year with Friday Fest, a once in a lifetime special opportunity to see the band WAR and nine Buffalo Chip showcase bands performing on the main stage in one night.
War, from California, is an American funk band that was formed in 1969 and is an American funk band, bringing a mix of rock, funk, jazz, Latin, rhythm and blues and reggae to whatever stage they rock. War will bring their hits “Low Rider,” “The Cisco Kid,” and “Why Can’t We Be Friends” to the legendary Buffalo Chip stage on Aug. 3.
War’s lyrics are often seen as socio-political, although their music is loved nation wide for their laid-back, California funk vibe. War features a harmonica and saxophone in their melody lines, for a unique blend of sounds. The music has been sampled and recorded by singers such as Janet Jackson, Korn and TLC.
Nine other bands will come together to rock the main stage the Friday night to kick off the Buffalo Chip’s nine day music festival that coincides with the Sturgis motorcycle rally. Mad Dog & the Smoking J’s, Blind Lion, Tumbleweed Junction, The Living Deads, That Damn Sasquatch, Iron Cowgirl Missy, ColdSweat, The Charlie Brechtel Band will start the party off on Friday, Aug. 3 at 2 p.m., with War as the headliner. Visitors to the legendary Sturgis campground should come early and take a dip in the Bikini Beach at noon. Kegs will be rolled out into the amphitheater at 2 p.m. for Kill the Kegs, which means free beer for those who get there early until the kegs run dry. Once the kegs run dry $1 drafts and $1 Dogs will be offered until 5 o’clock. Music starts at 2 p.m. True to Buffalo Chip style, Friday Fest will feature a wide range of music, including rock, rockabilly, hard rock, outlaw country, blues, bluegrass and classic rock. The Sturgis Rider™ Rhythm Rocker Dance Troupe and the Astral Rhythm Fire Dancers will also treat the audience to the sexiest entertainment of the rally.
