Warming up the second day of Inked Entertainment and 105.7 The X opened the day with a Pre-Party Stage featuring some amazing talent including Cole Hollow, Beyond Threshold, Dark Lit Sky, Joyous Wolf and headliners Buckcherry.




Cole Hollow



Opening up the day is another hometown Peoria trio made up of Vocalist/Lead guitarist Austin Smith, Bassist Alex Heisel, and Drummer Daniel Bergamini. This Blues Rock Band with psychedelic tones mixed with intense riffs certainly show their multi-generation influence from Hendrix to Sublime.  Songs "Vices", "Mimosa", and "Roll" were certainly favorites. Getting ready to record their second album along with music video and first Tour they are certainly a band to catch when they visit. 











 Dark Lit Sky



Brand New Peoria Band Dark Lit Sky his the stage with their first ever Live Stage show. Even though it was a debut fans and yours truly never would have believed it. Their energy and stage presence showed a veteran group or talented musicians. Vocalist Cody Roe, Guitarists Matt Trumpy and TJ Duckwiler, Bassist Scott Tillison, and Drummer Jon Dale have a great set list and flawless sound that had the fans on their feet.

Beyond Threshold



Chicago certainly knows how to birth some great bands. Coming together in 2011 Beyond Threshold has been rocking metal fans all over the Mid-West with a unique brand of Hardcore Metal. Opening for powerhouse bands they have been building their own following every show at a time. Playing songs from the Live To Fight album "Subsick", "Downside", and "Justify The Means" definitely prove that they truly follow their desire to encourage fans to Push Beyond The Threshold of anything and anyone.

Joyous Wolf



Forming in 2014 and fusing the sounds of Heavy Metal and Delta Blues Joyous Wolf started out when a talented group of guys met in 6th grade and saw the immediate potential of coming together to form what is an amazing combination of music. The voice of Nick Reese, Guitar riffs of Blake Allard, Deep Bass of Greg Braccio and thundering Drums of Robert Sodaro are a blend like no other. Their songs "Undesired", "Had Enough" and "Mother Rebel" certainly shows the flow that these four have. Their EP Album Place In Time is a definite must to pick up and jam out to.

Buckcherry



Formed in 1995 in Los Angeles, California Buckcherry has been rocking the world with their old school rock and roll vibe. Celebrating their eighth album War Paint the guys took the stage to headline the party stage at Spring Fling. Vocalist Josh Todd, Lead Guitarist Kevin Roentgen, Rhythm Guitarist Stevie D, Bassist Kelly LeMieux and Drummer Francis Ruiz had the crowd pumped up! Opening the set with a cover of Nine Inch Nails "Head Like A Hole", followed by hits "Radio Song", "2 Drunk" and Closing with the ever popular "Crazy Bitch" had the Peoria Riverfront shaking. This down to Earth band is always a must catch any time they are in town and always make every show an event like no other.
