Sioux Falls native Chuck Brennan has always been a rock fan, from his days as a Sioux Falls bar owner bringing bands like Dokken and April Wine to town, to promoting rock shows with Cinderella and Great White. Now, Brennan is doing something for the city that will impact kids for generations to come.

Brennan's Rock & Roll Academy is located in the heart of the city at 900 W. 11th Street and hosted a 'ground rocking' event in October to announce the opening to benefit Boys & Girls Club kids uncover and develop their love, passion and talents through music. For that event, Brennan had Alice Cooper and Sioux Falls own Kory & The Fireflies (who are the Academy's ambassadors)

It was a very exciting day in Sioux Falls for a groundbreaking! Now Brennan is raising the bar for the Grand Opening festivities March 26-30. Yes, FIVE days of grand openings with big name acts every night, performing intimate, VIP shows, all to benefit the Boys & Girls Club!

The festivities start Tuesday March 26th with Night Ranger!

Night Ranger

Over 30 years of hits and 17-million albums sold worldwide, Night Ranger always puts on a great show, and with only 300 tickets available for each of the week's shows, it's going to be incredible. All tickets include dinner and drinks. Get the details on Night Ranger tickets here.

Friday March 29 is being billed as 'Music Legends Night'. What makes one a music legend? It could be that they influenced and entire generation of fans, had massive album sales, decades of success in the business, an iconic reputation, or probably all of this combined. We have a few legends in the music business coming to Sioux Falls to rock out with all of us this night. Names so huge that we aren’t going to release them quite yet. Stay tuned…If there is going to be any night during our Grand Opening week that you won’t want to miss, this is going to be the night! Get ticket details for Music Legends Night here.


The five days of festivities wraps up Saturday March 30 with the ultimate tribute band to the 1980's Hairball with special guest Vince Neil of Motley Crue! Get ticket details here.

An incredible star-studded week of events that isn't seen very often in Sioux Falls. All proceeds benefit the children of the Boys and Girls Club of the Sioux Empire in an effort to change children’s lives through the power of music.

I'll be talking to Chuck Brennan next week about the Rock & Roll Academy and we'll have coverage of all the events during Grand Opening week on the air and here online!
