Round 3 of the 105.9 The Hog 2019 Rock Girl Calendar contest is in the books and we have our winners! From left to right in the above photo, the 2019 Rock Girls are: Laura, Brooke, Marissa, Stephanie, Chelsie, and Victoria. Congratulations ladies! The competition was tough and the judges had their work cut out for them. For those that are curious: High Impact Creations will be shooting the calendar over the course of next week. The calendar release date is July 19th. Sneakers Bar and Grill will host the reveal from 6pm-9pm. Come out and get your calendar signed by the rock girls!
The final theme for this round was bikinis--which was perfect given the 90+ degree temperature! Sweltering summer heat didn't keep the crowd away and it certainly didn't hamper the performance of the band, Pilot, cranking out a mixture of 80s metal and rock favorites. Pilot was an excellent choice for this event. They cover all the popular rock songs, such as AC/DC, Motley Crue, Dio, and even Journey, but with the talented Shelley Faith on vocals.
I will definitely add Pilot to my list of local favorites. That's three weeks and three bands in a row, if you're keeping score. The Anchor Inn knows how find the good bands, their entertainment schedule includes bands, comedians, midget wrestling, and probably more than I can think of at this time. Their calendar is online here. Last week I commented that I would definitely go out to see Denim n Leather again given the chance. Well, I just found out they will be in Evansville on July 4th--so if you see me there, say, "hi!"
One last quick plug on upcoming shows that I want to mention even though it doesn't have anything to do with the Rock Girl Calendar, is the 80s live music concert in Elkhart Lake this Friday night. My understanding is that this is one band with about 4 different singers, which gives them the ability to cover all things metal and rock from the 80s! I've heard nothing but great reviews on this so check it out!
I'll be adding one more contest post this week with plenty of photos. Keep watching this blog though, I will have plenty more Rock Girl related posts up to and through the July 19th reveal.
