A Down-Home-Grassroots Good Time | Michigan Chopper Fest
Living the Life
Each day as the sun dipped below the horizon, the camping area turned into party central, or as LD would say “Team Pahhrrty” with a parade of bikes cruising up and down the aisles as crowds of attendees popped from campsite to campsite visiting with old friends and making new ones. Live entertainment was plentiful with 11-year-old Fletcher shredding guitar with his band, The Wild Woodies. Things really heated up when the sultry Jasmine Cain took the stage. If you’ve never seen or heard Jasmine and her band do their thing, you are missing one of the best rock acts currently blowing up the motorcycle rally circuit. Sexy, but with a hard take-no-shit rocker edge—and the voice to back it up, Jasmine and her band don’t just play the typical crusty ’70s biker tunes, they cover a mix of ’90s grunge and current guitar-heavy riffs with a splash of their own original songs. She’ll be rocking her hometown of Sturgis this year, so make sure you catch her in the Black Hills.
If you’re looking for a fun and inexpensive grassroots event filled with good people and good times, put this event on your calendar. The sixth annual Michigan Chopper Fest takes place July 26-29. And if you see LD at the event or any of the major motorcycle rallies for that matter, stop him and say hi. You can’t miss him, he’ll be the guy with the long curly hair, running a mile-a-minute, and chatting people’s ears off about motorcycles. For more information, visit davidson-express.com. HB
