This internationally acclaimed professional Frisbee dog touring show (with over 8,100 different shows to their credit) is comprised of some of the best Frisbee Dogs on the planet. (Including ten different World Finalists) This team has performed all over the world in the past nineteen years at all types of events; including Paris, France; Assen, Holland, Hannover; Germany, Bagnacavallo, Italy; Santiago, Chile; Caracas, Venezuela; Acapulco, Mexico; Toronto, Canada; Bogota, Columbia; Tokyo, Japan and just about every state in the US. You may have also seen them on David Letterman, Jay Leno, Kathy & Regis, Animal Planet, Discovery Channel, ESPN, Good Morning America, Animal Attractions, Sabado Sensational, etc...)


All of their shows are family oriented; carry a message of fun, athleticism, canine bonding, and promote dog rescuing. Their routines are choreographed to music, defy the normal relationship between man and canine; and leave even the oldest of children with a smile on their face and in their heart. And to make it even more interesting; all of the dogs are “rescue” dogs, meaning they have come from either abandoned, homeless, sheltered, humane society, etc. backgrounds. Their individual stories are almost as interesting as their performances. We promise you will be laughing and clapping in awe at the tricks these dogs perform.

APPEARING IN TOWNE SQUARE ON THE GATOR HARLEY STAGE SAT APRIL 26th

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 back rock 'n' roll back -- 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.

The 1992 self-titled debut album went platinum and featured notable rock radio hits like "Down On Me," "When Will It Rain," "I Stand Alone" and, most notably, "The Lumberjack," during which vocalist Jesse James Dupree performed a chain-saw solo. Dupree's chain-saw escapades on album and in concert became one of many Jackyl trademarks. With the release of 'Jackyl' hit the road and barely left it since. Just long enough to record new albums. Touring mates in those early days included Aerosmith, Kiss, ZZ Top, Ted Nugent and Damn Yankees. 1993 saw "Mental *@%.!" featured on 'The Beavis & Butt-head Experience,' a compilation album of songs tied in with MTV's hit cartoon series; it was eventually certified triple platinum. 1994 was one of the most important years in the band's career. The second album, 'Push Comes To Shove,' hit the streets and went gold. That August, Jackyl turned in one of the most acclaimed performances at Woodstock '94 in Saugerties, NY, and the resulting double album 'Woodstock 94' went platinum and included "Headed For Destruction" (a track from 'Push Comes To Shove'). The live recording 'Night Of The Living Dead' was released exclusively in Europe on Mayhem Records in 1996.

It wasn't long before Jackyl followed A&R legend John Kalodner (who had signed them to Geffen) to Sony Music's imprint Epic Records. 'Cut the Crap' was released in 1997 and benefited from two industry heavyweights overseeing its recording: producer Mike Fraser (AC/DC, Metallica) and mixer Kevin Shirley (silverchair, Aerosmith). This album spawned the rock radio hit "Locked and Loaded," which included guest vocals by AC/DC's Brian Johnson. It was the first time Johnson had ever recorded with any artist but AC/DC since he joined the band 17 years earlier. A collection of B-sides titled 'Stayin' Alive' appeared on Shimmering Tone Records in 1998 but the biggest highlight of the year was Geffen's release of the best-of collection 'Choice Cuts' and the related promotional events Jackyl did to help promote it.

The band earned two Guinness Book of World Records citations and the designation "The Hardest Working Band in Rock 'N' Roll" for performing 100 shows in 50 days as well as 21 shows in 24 hours. Dupree says the most grueling of the two was 21 shows in 24 hours; Jackyl completed that task in Texas, and the shows were all done with full lights and sound. The daytime sets were 45 minutes long whereas the ones done at nighttime were between 90 and 120 minutes long. Jackyl released 'Relentless' on Humidity Records in 2002. It contained the second collaboration with Brian Johnson, "Kill the Sunshine." Universal Music/Geffen Records also issued a Jackyl volume as part of its acclaimed '20th Century Masters - The Millennium Collection' best-of series in 2003. For a band that built its reputation as road warriors, it's surprising that a full-length live album meant for worldwide release did not appear until 2004 with the separate release of the 'Live at the Full Throttle Saloon' CD and DVD on Sanctuary Records. 'Live at the Full Throttle Saloon' was recorded and filmed in summer 2003 in Sturgis, South Dakota, as part of the legendary annual biker rally festivities held there.

Staying true to their working band roots, 2008 and 2009 saw Jackyl on the road playing the summer festival circuit. The band is currently in the studio completing a 2010 release titled “My Moonshine Kicks Your Cocaine’s Ass.”
