The Thrills in the Hills Bike Rally will return on Oct. 10-11. It will also feature a concert by Jackyl on the evening of Oct. 11. Concert tickets are $18 and will go on sale tomorrow at www.clearfieldcountyfair.com.

It’s been nearly 20 years since Jackyl shot out of Georgia with its wild, untamed and uncouth approach to rock ‘n roll. Equal parts hard rock, heavy metal and Southern rock, Jackyl formed in 1991 and brought rock ‘n roll back to its down-to-earth, wild, fun-loving origins.

Full of spit and swagger – and a “dirty” sense of humor to boot – Jackyl quickly earned a deal with Geffen Records. Jackyl’s live shows were already legendary before the ink dried on the Geffen contract.

Their eponymous album has sold more than one million copies in the United States with released hit singles like “Down on Me” and “When Will it Rain.” The band is best known for its song “The Lumberjack,” which features a chainsaw solo by lead singer Jesse James Dupree.

Thrills in the Hills will also feature a bike show, rodeo and biker games.

Check the fair Web site for updated information on both events.
