    Rocken Horse With Chick Norris

    Concert At 7:00 PM On Saturday, September 15, 2018

    A portion of this show's net proceeds will be donated to help regional animal shelters and rescues!

    Chicago-rooted quartet ROCKEN HORSE formed in 1975 when the Windy City music scene was exploding with groups like REO Speedwagon, Styx and others. Rocken Horse lit up stages throughout the Midwest, signing their first record deal in 1980. Tight vocal harmonies gave Rocken Horse their own unique sound, anchored by a tight rhythm section and powered bytwin guitars.

    Their debut LP -- "Rocken Roll" -- generated a handful regional radio singles quickly buildingthem a large Midwestern following. Their 1981 album release show at Northwest Indiana's legendary Sherwood Club sold out in a matter of hours, as over 900 people came out to rock with "The Horse," as fans have come to call them.

    After a few years on the road doing headline shows and opening for top rock acts of the day,the members decided to follow their individual paths in life while always remaining the closest of friends.

    In 2016, three of the original Horses -- Jim Koranda, Glenn Reyna, and Ken Silvestri -- reunited with new drummer Rick Stanislavski to kick-start the second chapter of Rocken Horse. In 2017, they recorded and released an original EP, "Three By Four," to the delight of regional fans long-hoping for such a reunion. Today's Rocken Horse concerts feature those wonderful vocal harmonies delivering a nice blend of favorites from their debut album, new originals, and assorted covers by the classic bands who inspired them. Rocken Horse have recently shared stages with Chicago's legendary Ides of March and other top talents.

    Their Memorial Opera House debut will be even more special with the addition of CHICK NORRIS, the newest musical project by renown Chicago guitarist/vocalist Lorrie Kountz, famous for fronting the Chicago bands Bitch and Tough Love in the 1980s. Chick Norris is rounded out by guitarist Laura Jansons, bassist Pete Jansons, and drummer/percussionist Jeff Fite, who play 80’s and 90’s alternative and today’s current rock, retooling songs with their own artistic signature. Chick Norris has proved to be a crowd pleaser!

    Brightside Music is happy to welcome Shemekia Copeland to Valparaiso to headline our Blues Fest. Experience one of the greatest voices in blues at a venue that was practically made for it. You won't want to miss her.

With a voice that is alternately sultry, assertive and roaring, Shemekia's wide open vision of contemporary blues, roots and soul music showcases the evolution of a passionate artist with a modern musical and lyrical approach.

King, Buddy Guy, Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Carlos Santana, James Cotton and many others. She opened for The Rolling Stones and entertained U.S. troops in Iraq and Kuwait.
    With her latest album Outskirts of Love and a packed tour schedule, Copeland has her eyes fixed firmly on the future as she continues to break new musical ground. "I want to be growing, to be innovative," she says. "I'm a lifert, singing about things that bother me, using my music to help people. My dad always said that 'we're all connected.' I'm an old soul marching to the beat of my own drum," she continues, "And right now I'm making the most exciting music of my career.
