Rockabilly Run Set for June 22 in Lawrence County

(Walnut Ridge, Ark.) – KISS tribute band Exciter will headline the second  annual Rockabilly Run in Lawrence County on Saturday, June 22. The poker run for  motorcyclists will culminate with music and other activities at Beatles Park in  downtown Walnut Ridge.

Exciter has been performing as a band since 1995. The group does both classic  hits and newer songs from KISS, and it includes many aspects of an actual KISS  concert. Exciter also adds pyrotechnics and theatrical elements to its show,  including super hero characters like those in comic books. Its performance  starts at 6 p.m.

Also featured will be the band Fallen Within at 4:30 p.m., and the opening  act will be Hairy Larry and George at 3 p.m.

The entertainment is open to the public, and it is free of charge.

The run begins at Cox Powersports on Highway 63, with registration starting  at 9 a.m. The first bike out will be at 10 a.m., and the last bike in will be 3  p.m. The ride fee is $20 per hand, and $5 for each additional hand. Prizes will  be awarded for best and worst hand.

In addition, there will be a grand prize drawing for four days at a resort in  Myrtle Beach, S.C. The winner will also have a choice of a free helicopter ride  or a free round of golf. Each motorcycle entering the run will receive one  ticket for the grand prize drawing.

The Rockabilly Run is presented by Car Today in Jonesboro, and it is  sponsored by the Lawrence County Chamber of Commerce, Downtown Walnut Ridge and  Rumblin’ Around the Ridge.
