Last September Wild Boar Promotions, Inc. was pleased to bring to Hot Springs our 10th Anniversary Hot Springs Motorcycle Rally!! We have so many people to thank and if you're reading this post you are most likely one of them! Over the last 10 years we have made some great friends. Some of you have been with us from that first open rally back in 2006, and not only do you keep coming back to be with us, you bring friends from far and wide with you!
We will continue to work hard to make the 11th Annual Hot Springs Rally just as much fun as the past ones have been. In fact we started working within two weeks of our last rally and are in the process of booking entertainment for our upcoming 2016 event. Offers have gone out and we will announce as soon as they are confirmed. Please mark your calendars for this years' rally to be held on September 8-10!
We want to let everyone know that our next rally will be our 10th anniversary! We have already been working very hard to make this upcoming rally one of our best yet! We are working to bring in two full nights of exceptional entertainment. And because we have such a great turnout for our bike games every year, we are also looking to add some new games in 2015. We will be announcing other activities and entertainment as we have them.
Arkansas offers some of the best riding in the country. There's so much diverse terrain to discover on our picturesque roads, wide-open highways and back roads. That's the great thing about riding in Arkansas-just how much excitement we can pack into a compact geographic area. You'll meet plenty of nice folks and create great memories along the way. And isn't that why you ride, after all?
So stay tuned….. and mark those calendars now! Our September 10, 11 & 12, 2015 Hot Springs Rally is shaping up to be something you will not want to miss! Sincerely, Wild Boar Promotions, Inc.

Our 2013 headlining musicians were Lee Brice and Grand Funk Railroad. Lee Brice performed on Friday and was a sensational hit with our rally attendees! Lee Brice is a man whose time has come. On his stunning sophomore album, Hard 2 Love (Curb Records), the Academy of Country Music winner demonstrates a new maturity and patience, both in his songwriting and vocals.
Certainly radio listeners are already aware of "A Woman Like You," a married couple's starkly honest meditation on love and devotion. Immediately upon release, the mid-tempo ballad became iTunes' number five most-purchased song and sold more than 30,000 copies a week. Not bad for a first single off an album. "It's moving faster than anything I've ever had," Brice says with a smile in his warm, familiar baritone. "It's just so real." The single went on to take the top spot on the country radio charts and earned PLATINUM certification. Shortly thereafter, the album's title track followed suit, marking two consecutive No. one PLATINUM certified songs for the award-winning singer/song writer.
Originating from Flint, Michigan in 1969, this top selling American rock group of the '70s is "COMIN' TO YOUR TOWN TO HELP YOU PARTY IT DOWN." Grand Funk Railroad is extremely excited to be touring in 2013 marking a 44 year milestone. After playing to millions of fans on the band's tours from 1996 to 2012, Grand Funk's 2013 Tour will continue to reach both new and long-time fans.
Known as “The American Band," Grand Funk Railroad includes original founding members Don Brewer (vocals and drums, writer and singer of the multi-million selling hit, We’re An American Band) and bassist Mel Schacher, “The God Of Thunder." Joining Don and Mel are true “All Stars." Singer Max Carl is a rock veteran from 38 Special. Max penned and sang 38’s biggest hit “Second Chance” and was co-founder of California’s legendary Jack Mack and the Heart Attack. Don refers to Max as “the best blue-eyed soul singer on the planet." Lead guitarist Bruce Kulick is best known for his 12 years with KISS and also has credits with Michael Bolton, Meatloaf and Billy Squier. (KISS members Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley were influenced early on by Grand Funk.) Keyboardist Tim Cashion has a master’s degree in music from the University of Miami. Affectionately called “Dr. Tim," his credits include stints with Bob Seger and the Silver Bullet Band and English soul man Robert Palmer.
