As part of a Low Dough promotion with 98.9 The Rock that includes the ARCA Racing Series presented by Menards Kansas Lottery 98.9, Jackyl will perform on Oct. 7 after the race in the Corporate Display area. Tickets for the Kansas Lottery 98.9 include the concert.
The Georgia-based band, who has toured with Aerosmith, Kiss, ZZ Top, Ted Nugent and others throughout their career, is best known for the song “The Lumberjack,” which features a chainsaw used by lead singer Jesse James Dupree during the song. The band’s self-titled first album, released in 1992, went platinum and included songs “When Will It Rain” and “Down to Me.”
The group’s sound combines hard rock, heavy metal and southern rock and they released their latest album, “When Moonshine and Dynamite Collide” last year.
Dupree and his band mates can currently be seen on TruTv’s hit show “Full Throttle Saloon,” a reality show featuring the famous South Dakota bar during the annual Sturgis bike rally.
