No modern-rock band combines aggression, and melodic towering hooks with more authority than Candlebox. Candlebox emerged as a heavy hitter in the alternative rock scene in Seattle, Washington in 1990 and signed a record deal with Maverick Records, owned by Madonna, in 1993. Their debut album yielded hit after hit and went 4x Platinum. More than 5 Million albums later, Candlebox is set to cut loose their unbridled sounds on the Sturgis Buffalo Chip crowd. Buffalo Chip campers and concert goers can look forward to Candlebox rock’n the night away with some of their biggest hits such as “Far Behind”, “Cover Me”, “Change”, “No Sense” and “You”.
“The Sturgis Buffalo Chip is all about bringing one of a kind performances to the Rally” says Rod Woodruff, Owner of Sturgis Buffalo Chip. “We’re very excited Chip campers and rally goers will be able to see Candlebox at the Buffalo Chip and we are just as happy to give Candlebox the best crowd in the world to play for.”
