Piqua Arts Council Announces 2024 Rock Piqua! Line-Up

Provided by Piqua Arts Council

PIQUA - For 10 years, Piqua Arts Council and Mainstreet Piqua have been unifying the Piqua community through music with their annual Rock Piqua! event. In previous years this event was held as a free concert series throughout the summer months. A few years ago, the event was transformed into an all-day food truck + music festival that brings a diverse music line-up, a wide variety of food trucks, ice-cold beer and beverages, and an annual car show that features over 125 cars, trucks and motorcycles. This year’s event will take place on Saturday, June 22 in Downtown Piqua with the car show beginning at noon and live music at 1pm.

   Rock Piqua! has brought numerous bands and musicians to the stage since its beginning in 2014, with a persistent mission to advocate for local musicians and present a high-quality show for community members, friends and families. Bands such as Reflektion, Brother Believe Me, Clark Manson, Cole Ritter & the Night Owls, Zack Attack and more have filled the town with song each summer. This year, PAC has invited the brilliant Jamie Suttle to return once more as the night’s headliner, along with the Tyler Cochran Trio, The Kid and The Riff Raff and The Bucket List Players.

   Country singer-songwriter Jamie Suttle gained her musical inspiration as a child while singing in church in her home state of Kentucky. Now a resident of Dayton, Jamie draws on other genres of music such as rock, R&B, and soul to create her own unique sound. Jamie has released 3 full length albums so far as well as 7 singles. Her latest album, Dark Roots, was released in 2022 along with the music video for the title song on her YouTube channel. Jamie will be gracing the Rock Piqua! stage at 7pm on Saturday.

   Performing just before Suttle will be the Tyler Cochran Trio. The Tyler Cochran Trio sets out to combine the soul of the blues, mentality of jazz and attitude of rock into an experience that leaves you humming their tunes long after the music has stopped. Hailing from the Gem City of Dayton, Ohio, the Tyler Cochran Trio began as a side project in 2014 and has evolved into Tyler’s main endeavor. The Trio features the line up of Tyler on Guitar & Vocals, Matt Rookard on Bass and Phil Doncaster on Drums. Their performance will start at 5pm.

   The Kid & The Riff Raff is a 6-piece rock band reviving the sounds of the 90’s and 2000’s. Their brand of throwback music will be sure to put a beat in everyone’s step. The Kid and The Riff Raff will be performing at Rock Piqua! beginning at 3pm.

   Hailing from southwestern Ohio, The Bucket List Players is a 9-piece horn band that pays tribute to all the great funk, rock, soul and R&B classics including Chicago, Blood Sweat & Tears, Stevie Wonder, The Commodores, and many others. The Bucket List Players will be performing at 1pm.

   In addition to live entertainment all day, there will be a wide variety of food trucks available to all attendees, including BV Eatz, Susie’s Big Dipper, Naughty Lobstah, BackAlley Eatz, Freda’s Food Truck Trailer, The Brunch Truck and The Rolling Lemon. Whether you’re a fan of loaded nachos, homemade ice cream, fresh lemonade, delicious breakfast, buttery lobster rolls or your typical event’s fried food, Rock Piqua! includes it all. Ice-cold beer and beverages will also be available for purchase all day, including the classic domestics like Michelob Ultra and White
Claws, as well as a selection of craft beer from Crooked Handle Brewing Co.

   As if the all-day activities weren’t enough, Piqua Arts Council is kicking off the day at noon with the 7th Annual Rock ‘N Roll Car Show. The show brings in more than 125 cars, trucks and motorcycles from all across the state of Ohio. At $5 per vehicle, people’s choice awards and free dash plaques valid for the first 75 cars, this show is a can’t miss. Pre-registration is open online and registration will be available at 10am on Saturday, June 22, 2024.

   Mark your calendars for Saturday, June 22. Stop in for a cold drink, or stay all day and enjoy all of the festivities at little to no cost. Learn more about the Rock Piqua! Food Truck + Music Festival and the 7th Annual Rock ‘N Roll Car Show here:
