A Course of Action, fresh off their debut performance at Rocklahoma over Memorial Day Weekend, has been selected to take the main stage at The Legendary Buffalo Chip during the 74th Annual Sturgis Motorcycle Rally in Sturgis, SD.
“To say we are humbled is an understatement,” says the band. As part of the 2014 Sturgis Concerts Rocks Rally, the band will perform on the Wolfman Jack Stage alongside Sevendust and Buckcherry to round out the final night of performances on Saturday, August 9. The band brings a melodic hard rock sound and great live show, which will compliment this bill. In fact, they credit Sevendust as a major influence on their music.
This pinnacle performance is one of a string of major accomplishments for the band, whose roots are in the western NC mountains. Within two years, the band has performed for Jivewired America at an unofficial showcase during the acclaimed SXSW Music Festival in Austin, TX, performed for major industry professionals as part of the Exposed Music Festival and most recently rocked out at Rockahoma in Pryor, OK, as part of the Axis Entertainment Stage lineup. Back at home, the band has become a favorite for national shows in and around central and western NC.
“We hope this amazing opportunity will finally put the pieces of the puzzle in place for us. The last two years have held some awesome experiences, and we always have fun seeing where it will lead us next,” says the band’s singer, John Culberson. “This one though, will probably be the largest show of our careers, but we are ready.”
The Sturgis Motorcycle Rally draws as many as 500,000 people annually for the concert series, which takes place from August 1-10, 2014. Along with the other headliners this year – The Cult, Queensryche, Collective Soul, Lynyrd Skynyrd, The Zac Brown Band, Motley Crue, Alice Cooper, John Mayall, Florida Georgia Line, ZZ Top, Pop Evil, Train, The Pretty Reckless and Cheap Trick, A Course of Action joins the ranks of some of the top acts in the country.

Two years ago, Jivewired America took a shot on this small NC band and took us to play an unofficial showcase at SXSW in Austin, TX. During that performance, we solidified a relationship with this company…the next year, we had the incredible fortune to sign with Hutch Entertainment and were introduced to Axis Entertainment and they asked us to go to Rocklahoma this year. We played on a side stage there, but we were so well-received, that we were excited to be asked to join them at Sturgis this year. It would be a first for us, but such a long trip. Little did we know that both of our friends, from Jivewired and Axis, were collatorating to take 10 bands to Sturgis this year, and we are so incredibly fortunate that they are taking the biggest shot of our career on this little band.
We will be representing all of these fantastic partners when we take the MAIN STAGE at The Legendary Buffalo Chip on August 9, and we are opening for our idols, Sevendust and headliners, Buckcherry. The Sturgis Motorcycle Rally draws 450-500,000 people annually to Sturgis, South Dakota, and we get to play it in the best possible way we could ever imagine. We are forever in your debts. —
