This is what Rockin The Yard is all about. Helping others and keeping local companies working and giving back. We had a great year so far and are overwhelmed with all the positive input. Yes we have some areas to work on but we will do our best to fix everything to make future experiences better. Since this is NOT a Jaffa event we will need to work with them to fix the rock issues. Again thank you to everyone who has supported this event so far. One more show for this year Sept 17 Pistol Peg and The Beer Kegs. Let’s rock the yard and end the season with a sale out.

Over the past several years, there has been a recurring concert series held at the Altoona
Railroaders Memorial Museum. These concerts allowed the local community to have affordable
entertainment here in their own backyard. The Pandemic of 2020 has been difficult for everyone. Local
businesses and community organizations have been affected, not to mention the personal toll it has taken
on the area residents.
Rockin’ the Yard will represent a return to normal for everyone who struggled through the events of the
past year. The concerts will feature Professional Tribute Acts, as well as showcasing regional and local
talent. These shows will provide quality entertainment at affordable prices. These shows will be managed
and staffed by local organizations and companies who have endured hardships over the past year.
This year’s event will be held in the upper lot of The Jaffa Shrine. We intend to grow this into an annual
event, with proceeds being distributed to community organizations. This year’s concerts will benefit the
following organizations: Shriners Childrens Hospital, Blair/Clearfield Association for the Blind and FC814 soccer.

09/01/2021

As we are getting closer to the final Rockin the Yard event of 2021 we are looking forward to the 2022 concert season. We would like to thank everyone for their support this year.
Our questions to all of the attendees:
How can we improve the event for next year?
What bands would you like to see next year?
Any suggestions will be appreciated..
Thanks all!!

LIVE WIRE offers the most complete and authentic reproduction of AC/DC's sound and stage performance in the world. LIVE WIRE's live show is the most accurate duplication of the original band that AC/DC fans worldwide have come to love.
Established in the year 2000 and hailing from the New York metro area, LIVE WIRE has performed for audiences on FIVE continents around the world including North America, South America, Europe, Asia, and Africa. The band has performed for audiences across the United States, Canada, Egypt, Spain, Turkey, Finland, Venezuela, Peru, Honduras and many other regions.
Lead singer Francis Crouse brings to you an unmatchable emulation of Brian Johnson himself, portraying AC/DC's frontman of the last 40 years with a powerful delivery of voice and stage presence like no one else! The trio of Bill's: Rhythm guitarist Bill Voccia, bass guitarist Bill Bowden and drummer Billy Rauff hold down the rhythm section, the driving force behind the AC/DC juggernaut of sheer rock 'n roll power and wall of sound. Last but not least, the Ultimate ANGUS YOUNG clone in North America rounds out the band to deliver to you the most unforgettable and undeniably most authentic AC/DC experience on the planet.
LIVE WIRE emulates the pure essence, power, and electricity of what an AC/DC show is all about and has proven to audiences time and time again that you can't stop rock 'n roll. High Voltage rock 'n roll at its best.
LIVE WIRE performs the best of AC/DC from the early roots of the bands Australian club circuit days, to the superstar worldwide status of their present hits. Complete with a full stage performance, just as if Angus Young and the boys were rocking before your very eyes. The closest you're gonna get to the real thing™...let us electrify an audience near you!
There are well over 100 AC/DC Tribute bands from around the world, and many of them claim to be “The Ultimate AC/DC Tribute band”, however only one band can actually back up this statement and prove it. LIVE WIRE, from the New York metro area is comprised of five veteran professional musicians, most who were from the very first original AC/DC Tribute bands to ever be formed in the world. LIVE WIRE consists of the very finest AC/DC member clones/impersonators to form the most accurate AC/DC live show you will ever see, next to the real thing.
LIVE WIRE can give you the biggest hits: "You Shook Me All Night Long", "Highway To Hell", "Back In Black", "Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap", "T.N.T.", "Whole Lotta Rosie", "Thunderstruck", "Hells Bells" and more, to the other big fan favorites such as "Shoot To Thrill", "Have A Drink On Me", "Sin City", "Hell Ain't A Bad Place To Be", "Jailbreak", "Shot Down In Flames" and many, many more. Our repertoire is continually growing, now over 80+ songs strong, and we're adding new songs to our set lists as often as we can.
The band is available for bookings worldwide, and accept booking inquiries for any type of events ranging from Clubs and concert halls to festivals and rallies to casinos and cruises to private parties and corporate events.
There's no denying that everyone likes AC/DC in some way, and LIVE WIRE are here to deliver you the power, energy, image, and sound that you would expect at an actual AC/DC concert. If you want ‘the closest you’re gonna get to the real thing’, then LIVE WIRE –The world’s definitive AC/DC Tribute band is the band for you. Our goal is to spread the music of AC/DC, who we consider to be The Greatest rock n roll band of all time, bar none, and we are here to prove that FACT!. If you don’t own every AC/DC album after we’re finished playing, we intend that you will soon after!

WE SALUTE YOU!

Looking at the weather forecast for this evening… there is a chance of rain later this evening.
We recommend bringing an umbrella or rain coat to ride out the shower.
If you choose to, you can also bring in a tent or canopy as long as it it properly secured to the ground. There will be a designated area for placement of the canopies..( behind the sound booth area in the center - to the right and left of the venue.
This event is rain or shine, so we hope to see everyone tonight.
