Great White to visit the Gas-Lite September 8
Ellsworth Wisconsin 126 S. Chestnut St. 54011

The thrill and excitement of playing in front of people is still there for Jack Russell now as it was 25 years ago.

"It's been an amazing ride," he said, the lead singer of the band Great White. "Twenty-five years have gone like the blink of eye. I swear I started this band yesterday."


To commemorate the silver anniversary of their first record, the band launched a 2007 tour with nearly 35 dates with one of the stops being at the Gas-Lite Tavern in the town of Trimbelle September 8 as part of the 17th annual chili feed motorcycle rally.

The feed is a two-day benefit put on by the St. Croix Valley Riders. Gates open at 5 p.m. Friday and 9 a.m. Saturday. Besides music, there will be scooter events, food vendors, bike show, tattoo artists, all-night bonfire and free beer and chili on Saturday only.
