Las Vegas BikeFest has announced that American musician, singer and songwriter Uncle Kracker will play live at this year’s Las Vegas BikeFest on Saturday, October 7.
Initially known for his role as DJ in Kid Rock’s legendary Twisted Brown Trucker band, Uncle Kracker soon kicked off a stunning solo career of his own. The singer/songwriter made his solo debut with 2001’s #1 smash, “Follow Me,” kicking off a run of top 10 multi-format hits like “In A Little While,” “Smile,” and of course, 2003’s cover of Dobie Gray’s classic “Drift Away” which set a Billboard record for most weeks at #1 on any chart, topping their #1 run on the Adult Contemporary radio charts for a staggering 28 weeks. Uncle Kracker’s deep melodies and sense of what the heartland means has made him a perfect fit in today’s post-rural realm of country music.
Uncle Kracker is still having a blast playing sold out shows across the country, and fans undoubtedly will too when they see him on the road. His live show continues to get bigger and better with every tour. “It’s very interactive,” he says. “It’s meant to be a party, and I want everybody involved. Each time we go on stage, I want people to leave smiling.”
“We are very excited to have Uncle Kracker as our headline entertainment for this year’s rally. Whether he is singing a classic like “Drift Away” or his upbeat song, “Smile,” we know rally goers of all ages will enjoy the show,” states Mindi Cherry, Event Manager.
