The Amazing Pictures From an Awesome Night of 4 Freakin’ Years of Hard Rock
What a night. Thank you for rocking The Rust Belt for the 4 Freakin' Years of Hard Rock anniversary party. Below you can check out many of the moments from the night that featured Nonpoint, Alborn, Through Fire, and NonGrata.
We rocked, talked, and had some drinks while giving away concert tickets, autographed guitars, and a doll that made its way around the crowd. You'll see.
This was a fun way to start the night. The guys from NonGrata have been around the Quad Cities before but never at The Rust Belt. We were happy we could bring them to show you what they are all about.
You'll mostly find them around Iowa City but if you liked what you heard, and I know a lot of you did, then follow them on the socials for all the shows around the area.
For me, this was the one band in the lineup I'd never seen before, and was so happy with what they brought to the show!
Was great to hear all the songs we've been playing for you the last few months live. Grant (lead singer) has a powerful stage presence and can rip those lyrics to make you feel every one of them. Tyler and Zach Halverson (guitar, drums) both were on point with Tyler running across every inch of that stage.
At one point in the evening, Justin said "You guys gave us a home when we didn't have one." You guys will always have a home here cause you freakin' rock and bring it every time you take that stage.
The party started early for the guys as they treated the line to some taffy. Seriously. You'll see that picture below as well.
It was fantastic to have Nonpoint here for the party. They are high energy, fun, great sounding, and the perfect way to end the night. When they said they were down to play for the 4 Freakin' Year party there was never a question in our mind they would be headlining our show.
Elias got the crowd going with a chant of 4 F&$#kin Years and they made that connection to the Quad Cities like they have been across the country for the last 23 years. It was the perfect way to end an amazing night.
Thank you for coming out and celebrating with us. We'll start planning the 5 Freakin' Years of Hard Rock party right now.
And thank you again to the sponsors who helped keep it free! Allied Valve, AHA Holisticals, Analog Pizza and Arcade, Mike's Floorpro, Oveson Refuse and Recycling, The Pub in Milan, Nature's Treatment of Illinois, Eclipse Gunworks, Glassman Professional Detailing, and Nally's Kitchen.
