Autograph - (Set time: 10:00 PM)
Autograph left an everlasting imprint on rock 'n' roll. The platinum-selling Southern California hard rock juggernauts gave the world the ubiquitous hit "Turn Up the Radio", seminal albums such as Sign In Please [1984], That's The Stuff [1985], and Loud and Clear [1987] as well as unforgettable sold out shows alongside everybody from Mötley Crüe and Ronnie James Dio to Van Halen and Aerosmith. Given those accolades, when they disbanded in 1989, they never left the hearts and minds of millions of fans around the globe. Simply put, a reunion was both inevitable and essential.

In 2011, founding guitarist Steve Lynch and bassist Randy Rand decided to meet up at the NAMM show in Anaheim. They rekindled their friendship first, opening up the lines of communication and bonding more than ever before. With the relationship rebuilt, they made a collective decision to jam again.

"We approached our original singer Steve Plunkett about a reunion," recalls Lynch. " He didn't have the time to join the band again due to how busy his business is. He did give us his blessing to move forward though, and that was important. We missed our fans. This is for them."

Fully embracing the future, the remaining members caught some videos of singer/guitarist Simon Daniels of Jailhouse on YouTube. Instantly, they sensed a connection and knew that he was meant for the open spot in the center stage.

"He has big shoes to fill," smiles Rand. "Nevertheless, he was born to front Autograph. His hard-edged, bluesy voice and massive riffing sharpen our edge. He's given us a new energy, and he impressed us immediately."

"We all had a euphoric feeling after the first rehearsal," Lynch adds. "These songs hadn't been played in 25 years, and it was indescribable. It was great to be making music with my friends again."

With the lineup solidified, Autograph stand poised to shake Rock 'n' Roll up yet again. It's as if every element has been enhanced from the guitars to the bass and vocals as well as drums with the addition of drummer Marc Wieland.

Lynch puts it best, "We're much heavier than before. We're not using keyboards and we're tuning down for a much fatter sound. That strengthens everything. At the same time, the melodic vocals and catchy hooks are still an integral part of our sound."

Successfully touring again since the beginning of 2014 Autograph has strived and shined at theaters, casinos, various venues and major Festivals as M3, Monsters of Rock Cruise, The Moondance Jam, Firefest, The Halfway Jam among others reaching the 4 corners of the USA along with Canada and the UK as well as releasing 3 new anthem singles one of them "I lost my mind in America" making the TOP 10 ITUNES Charts, a crowd favorite " You are us, We are you" receiving great reviews and airplay and "Every Generation" recently released and featured in Classic Rock Magazine. The band delivers an undeniably bombastic live performance and it was also displayed in the USA TODAY news website. A new EP is due to be released soon as the Timeless Classic Rock Anthem Top 40 HIT Single "Turn up the Radio" continues to receive constant and permanent Radio Airplay in all Major Rock Radio stations around the World.
Station - (Set time: 8:30 PM)
While lost souls around the globe grapple with finding their true path, teenagers spend
the fleeting days of their youth experimenting with identity and budding music
performers struggle to classify their sound, Station has planted itself on solid ground with
electrifying, original melodies that carry allusions to the golden age of rock ‘n’ roll but
stand firmly at the forward edge of the here and now.
The vocal range and charismatic stage presence of Station’s frontman, Patrick Kearney, is
just one piece of the outfit’s highly precise, polished machine. Each member is brilliant in
his role in the larger, perpetual operation but adds a distinct artistry with contributions
that must be experienced to fully appreciate.
Rock fans everywhere have taken notice. Radio stations all around country have given
them airplay (most in their top 10)—Station has reached #12 on the CMJ Loud Rock
chart—and Station has electrified the stage at major festivals like Rocklahoma, Musikfest
and Great South Bay Music Festival.
The anthemic choruses in tracks like “Dressed To Kill”, “Never Say Never,” “With Me
Tonight” are fueled with a sense of freedom and inspire audiences to join in at the top of
their lungs. No need for outlandish stage antics and production-room embellishments;
the songs on Station’s self-titled debut are an innovative take on everything we love
about rock ‘n’ roll—the contemporary version of blasting a classic track at 75 miles an
hour on the open road.
Station has shared the stage with rock icons like Pat Benatar, Vince Neil, Bret Michaels,
Eric Martin of Mr. Big and many more. And they’ve learned from the greats: the synergy
between bass and guitar is symbiotic, devoid of too-generous guitar solos or weak lyrics.
Textured riffs and enough growl in their vocals quench the listener’s thirst for hard, real,
fun and satisfying rock.
