Vince Neil & Bret Michaels ready to rock Kewadin!

With only 17 days to go, the excitement for Kewadin’s 1st Summer Festival is building! We’re putting the final touches on details, finalizing vendors, placing final orders for tents and merchandise.

The first night of the festival will be a rockin one! Not only will we have live entertainment starting at noon, but superstars Vince Neil (former Mötley Crüe front man) and Bret Michaels (former Poison front man) will be performing!

Vince Neil:

International superstar, accomplished businessman and heartfelt philanthropist, Vince Neil came to exemplify all things rock and roll: the sound, the success, the look and the outrageous lifestyle. Vince's unmistakable voice leads some of the greatest rock songs of this generation including "Shout At The Devil," "Home Sweet Home," "Girls, Girls, Girls," "Dr. Feelgood," "Kickstart My Heart," "Same Ol Situation," and the recent "Saints of Los Angeles," which was nominated for a Grammy Award in 2009 for Best Hard Rock Performance. With fifteen years between his last solo album, Vince Neil releases Tattoos & Tequila on June 22, followed by his tell all book of the same name later in the fall.

When not performing, Vince Neil continues to expand and oversee his latest entrepreneurial efforts which include Feelgoods Rock Bar and Grill in West Palm Beach and Las Vegas; Vince Neil Ink, a Las Vegas based tattoo parlor and apparel shop with two locations -- one on the Las Vegas strip and one in the Rio Hotel & Casino; Tres Rios tequila, a high quality, authentic Mexican tequila created from the finest Agave in Guadalajara Mexico; The Skylar Neil Memorial Foundation (, a tribute to Vince's daughter whom he lost to cancer in 1995 which has raised over $2 million to help combat childhood cancer and his latest venture, Vince Neil Aviation, a luxury air charter service providing the rock n' roll commute on either his Lear 35 or Hawker 700 jets.

In addition to selling 80 million records around the world as the badass front man for Mötley Crüe, Vince Neil also began his career as a solo artist in 1993. Vince's Top 200 Billboard albums, Exposed (which reached number 13 on The Billboard 200 albums chart) and Carved In Stone have spurred the hits "You're Invited (But Your Friend Can't Come)" (co-written by Vince with Jack Blades and Tommy Shaw), "Can't Have Your Cake" (co-written by Vince with Steve Stevens) and "Sister Of Pain" (co-written by Vince with Jack Blades and Tommy Shaw).

The International rock icon's new album Tattoos & Tequila, co-produced by Vince Neil, Jack Blades (Aerosmith, Ozzy Osbourne, Alice Cooper) and Marti Frederiksen (Aerosmith, Def Leppard, Buckcherry) is a compilation of genre defining hits that have been given the Vince Neil rock renewal treatment and is sure to be an updated rock lifestyle staple. The title song for the album captures Vince's signature sound with a contemporary feel that has been compared to current acts such as Cavo and Godsmack. "Tattoos & Tequila" celebrates the rock n' roll lifestyle.

Bret Michaels:

Bret Michaels is, if nothing else, a true survivor. He has survived ear fatal car crash in 1994 and the countless musical trends and fads of the last two decades.

As front man for the legendary rock band Poison, Michaels has sold 25 million records and scored an amazing 15 chartbusting Top 40 singles including "Talk Dirty to Me," "Something to Believe In," "Nothing But a Good Time" and the timeless #1 smash "Every Rose Has its Thorn."

And in the new millennium Poison's music has been featured in such big screen flicks as "Mr. and Mrs. Smith," "Grandma's Boy" and "Deuce Bigelow-European Gigolo." They continue to be one of the industry's top grossing concert attractions and their 2006 "20 Years of Rock" CD was a bona fide Top 20 gold smash. Poison's most recent CD is 2007's "Poison'D" an album of cover songs that have influenced the band members over the years.

Michaels has also produced and written material for other artists including Stevie Nicks. He wrote and produced the song "Love's a Hard Game to Play" which appeared on Nicks' platinum album "Timespace: The Best Of Stevie Nicks." More recently Michaels could be heard providing background vocals along with Phil Vassar on the Kenny Chesney/Uncle Kracker duet single "Last Night Again."

As an actor, Michaels has made regular appearances on such hit television shows as "Yes Dear," "Martial Law," and "The Chris Isaak Show." And he has also co-hosted "Access Hollywood" and been a judge on the wildly popular "Nashville Star" program. Recently, Michaels has played for charity on "Don't Forget the Lyrics" winning $250,000 for St. Jude's Children's Hospital and Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation.

Setting his musical sights beyond Poison, Michaels released his debut solo album "Songs of Life" in 2003 followed by the rootsy, Americana flavored sophomore record "Freedom of Sound" in 2005. The current release, "Rock My World" was released in June 2008 and features a collection of Bret Michaels' solo songs that have been featured on the "Rock Of Love" television series.

"Rock of Love with Bret Michaels" has been an enormous ratings winner for Vh1. The series has became the highest rated series on Vh1 and consistently won its time slot when aired, including multiple airings. Michaels is currently filming a third installment of the series aptly titled "Rock of Love Bus with Bret Michaels" as the singer is taking the show on the road this time.

This show will be unforgettable – opening bands will start at 5 p.m., headliners will perform with a spectacular fireworks display following. Get your tickets now – only $75 for all three days or $50 for single day passes – at or 800-539-2346. What are you waiting for?
