Club H.O.G. Down Home Announces Entertainment For 2007


Montgomery Gentry, Big Head Todd & the Monsters and Cowboy Mouth Ready to Rock H.O.G.'s 24th Annual Rally

MILWAUKEE, Wis. (May 22, 2007) -Headline acts Montgomery Gentry, Big Head Todd & the Monsters, and Cowboy Mouth will fill two stages of live entertainment with the sound of stomping boots and thunderous applause at the Harley Owners Group (H.O.G) Club H.O.G. DOWN HOME: 24th Annual Rally, August 24-25, 2007, at Chilhowee Park in Knoxville, Tenn.

Harley-riding duo Montgomery Gentry has rocked the country music world since 1999 with their blue-collar anthems and tales of life, love and patriotism. Winners of numerous national awards, they were recently nominated for the 2007 Academy of Country Music Award for Top Vocal Duo. Montgomery Gentry will rock Club H.O.G. DOWN HOME on Friday, August 24, at the Harley stage.

New this year, Colorado-based band Big Head Todd & the Monsters brings its laid-back, slightly jazzy, blues-based rock to the Harley stage Saturday afternoon. A favorite on the national recording and concert scene since the release of its breakthrough album, "Sister Sweetly," in 1992, the band just released "From the Archives - Vol. 1," a collection of their greatest hits.

Crowd favorite Cowboy Mouth returns to CLUB H.O.G. DOWN HOME with its New Orleans style of rock `n roll and legendary live shows sure bring down the house Saturday at the Miller Tennessee Tap stage. Perhaps Cake magazine said it best when it wrote "...on a bad night they'll tear the roof off the joint and on a good night they'll save your soul."

Other performers include genre-bending master guitarist DB Bryant Band, high-energy Blues, Rock and Boggie band Dixie Werewolves, steel horse-riding traditional Country artist Sundance & the Roughriders, Blues/Rock power trio Sonny Moorman Group and the "Road-tested Country" group the Drew Davis Band.

Take a break from the live music and enjoy the other activities offered at CLUB H.O.G. DOWN HOME. Take the opportunity to meet and talk with Harley-Davidson executives at the Town Hall Meetings as they take questions from H.O.G. members or talk tech with Harley-Davidson technicians at three different Service Seminars - all at the H.O.G. Amphitheater. Take advantage of the miles of extraordinary scenic riding around the Knoxville area with rides organized by those who know the area best: chapter members from the two area Harley-Davidson dealerships.

Performances at the Stunt Zone include Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Motorcycle Drill Team, Seattle Cossacks Stunt Team, Bubba Blackwell: The Buell American Daredevil, ILLConduct, and Bruce Rossmeyer's Ft. Lauderdale Harley-Davidson Drill Team,

While most activities are limited to registered H.O.G. member event attendees, the Knoxville community is encouraged to participate in various rally activities such as free demo rides on 2008 Harley-Davidson 105th anniversary models and Buell motorcycles, viewing the newly re-designed Harley-Davidson Traveling Museum and cheering on the motorcycles during the Knoxville Parade of Harleys on Saturday morning.

The public is also invited to attend the Smoky Mountain Shindig: Where the HOG Meets the Dragon on Thursday, August 23, at Smoky Mountain Harley-Davidson and Buell in Maryville, the Knox Rocks Down Home HOG Fest hosted by Knoxville Harley-Davidson and Buell on Saturday, August 25 at both local dealerships and Down Home at the Shed at Smoky Mountain Harley-Davidson and Buell on Saturday.
