Sioux Falls Band Joins Sioux City Rockestra
Sioux City’s Rockestra was inducted into the Iowa Rock and Roll Hall of Fame a year ago and has featured some amazing musicians over their 10+ year run, but this year, an entire Sioux Falls band will join the lineup as the Jukebox Zeroes made the announcement on their Facebook page early Thursday:
The BIG ANNOUCEMENT is that we as an entire band will be performing this season with the Sioux City Rockestra. I have updated our events section with all four shows from this 10th season of Rockestra. Jason & Amy Ellsworth will be returning to the Rockestra group as Jason will be switching from lead guitar to bass guitar. Jason has been in Rockestra since 2010 and Amy has been singing with Rockestra since 2008. Guitarists, Eldon Fisher and Geoff Gunderson will return to the Rockestra after a three year absence. And for the first time ever drummer, Jeff Koller, will play the drums along side Sioux City’s own, Johnnie Bolin. We are thrilled to be involved as an entire band and to be playing with Siouxland’s finest musicians that it has to offer. It will be very special for us. We hope all our friends from Sioux Falls, Sioux City and beyond can check it out. If you’ve been to the shows before – thank you. If have haven’t been to them before – you’re in for a treat. It’d be cool if you would like the Sioux City Rockestra facebook page. You can also get more information and ticket information at www.siouxcityrockestra.com. Rock on everyone and see you real soon at one of our many up and coming shows.
The first show is a Halloween spectacular on October 26 at the Orpheum Theatre in Sioux City, Iowa.
I’ve been to a handful of shows over the past couple of years and couldn’t be more impressed. Fantastic musicians from around the Sioux Falls and Sioux City area, melding rock with a full string and horn section doing a full evening of ‘themed’ music (the highlight is always the Christmas show, but ALL the shows are great!)
Make it a point to get to a Rockestra show (or three!) this year. You’ll have a great time!
