Memphis Throttle Fest Powered By Fun Ford – Event Details

MILLINGTON, Tenn. (August 20, 2015) – The band lineup for Throttle Fest Memphis powered by Fun Ford Series has been finalized and Tom Keifer of Cinderella will headline on Friday night August 28 to complement Jackyl serving as the star attraction on Saturday night August 29 at Memphis International Raceway (MIR).

“Memphis is a city with such amazing music history and has always been one of my favorite places to play,” Keifer said. “It’s been a while since I’ve played there and I can’t think of a better way to come back. Throttle Fest combined with the rock fans of Memphis will be nothing short of a killer event! The band and I are so looking forward to rocking with you all!”

Keifer has fronted Cinderella since its inception and has toured with the band around the world supporting its four studio albums and several live and “best of” releases.

“Michael Ballard and I are very excited to have Tom Keifer with us at Throttle Fest Memphis,” said Jesse James Dupree of the Full Throttle Saloon. “You do not realize the full extent of Tom’s pipes until you see his live show and it is hit after hit. We are honored to have him as part of the Full Throttle family as he has played several Throttlefest events with us now and he kills it every time.”

Keifer will cap off a wild night scheduled for Friday when he is scheduled to take the stage at 10 p.m. Before that The Dirty Streets will play at 8 p.m. and EMN (Every Mother’s Nightmare) will play at 9 p.m.

If those three bands aren’t enough to get the adrenaline flowing, the “Wall of Death” motordrome, a circular arena in which skilled riders defy gravity to perform motorcycle stunts, will join the Full Throttle Rockstar Bartenders in the Full Throttle Saloon area certainly will. Midnight Madness will be the cherry on top thanks to drifting with Traction Optional, an open car show and the chance to race your own car on the drag strip.

Saturday brings a full day’s worth of fun and excitement that starts with the Fun Ford series with FocusFest taking part in autocross, drag racing and an all-Ford car show sponsored by Crutcher Insurance Group of Collierville. The Wall of Death and the Full Throttle Saloon will be in action throughout the day as well.

Throttle Fest Memphis Coming in August

Jackyl headlines weekend filled with Ford horsepower and motorcycle mayhem

MILLINGTON, Tenn. (June 11, 2015) – The mayhem of the Full Throttle Saloon, the world’s largest biker bar, is coming to Memphis International Raceway (MIR) August 28-29.
Throttle Fest Memphis, which is presented by Full Throttle Saloon and powered by the Fun Ford Series, Rock 103 and iHeart Media, will be two days of adrenaline-fueled excitement for car, motorcycle and music lovers alike.

“This is an event we’ve been trying to get to Memphis for a long time,” said MIR VP and GM Pam Kendrick. “It’s going to be the perfect mix of horsepower and rock music that people are going to love.”

The event is headlined by the platinum selling rock of Jackyl, who will take to the main stage on Saturday night. Jackyl will be one of several bands rocking MIR during the weekend.

“We’re excited to be playing in front of Memphis fans again,” said Jessie Dupree, frontman for Jackyl. “That’s a city that loves its music and we’re going to give them an awesome show at Throttle Fest.”

Other entertainment features the “Wall of Death” motordrome, a circular arena in which skilled riders defy gravity to perform motorcycle tricks and stunts. The Circus Una Motorcycle Thrill Show is an all-female daredevil trio that combines trapeze acrobatics with motorcycle riding on a high wire. The Full Throttle Rockstar Bartenders will make every beverage stop a treat, and there will even be a Leprechaun at the event.

If that’s not enough, the Fun Ford Series will bring the best of the Blue Oval Brigade to MIR with drag racing, all-Ford car show and swap meet during the day.
More music acts will be announced in the next couple of weeks. Throttle Fest Memphis sponsors include Full Throttle S’loonshine and Jesse James American Outlaw Bourbon Whiskey.

Full weekend tickets for this festival of wall-to-wall entertainment are $35 and can be purchased online starting Friday, June 12 by going to www.RaceMIR.com or www.ThrottleFest.com.
