I just wrapped up my first day of Rock USA in Osh Kosh, Wisconsin. This is the first event I am getting to work with the rock station I DJ for and I am happy to have found out that I can make it through the first day with no major screw ups. I was also able to experience things at concerts I have not had the chance to before.
I was fortunate enough to meet Buckcherry when my boss had another meet and greet pass, so I got a bone thrown to me and was told to get my ass in the meet and greet tent. I was able to go basically anywhere on the grounds including up to the guard rail of the stage and even catch the last minute of Buckcherry’s set back stage.
Day two tomorrow will bring a ton of classic bands from the 80’s including, Slaughter, Great White, Queensryche, Anthrax and Twisted Sister. Friday is the big day for me when I get to interview my first ever nationally recognized band, Sevendust. I have been a huge fan of those guys since I was thirteen and had the privilege of seeing them back in April front row.
Time to get some sleep and be ready to rock my ass for another 3 days. And here is my picture from backstage.
