Donnie Baker and Pork Pistols and Me Go to Sturgis

A few months back, I received an email from an old friend and comedy booking agent, Jeff Johnson, U.S.A. Entertainment Agency: ”Donnie Baker and his band want to bring their show to Sturgis this summer. Got any advice?” I replied: “Yes, I do. The place they want to be is the Legendary Buffalo Chip Campground.” Then I contacted the owner of the Buffalo Chip, Rod Woodruff. That got the ball rolling…. Last week the Buffalo Chip made it’s official announcement. Donnie Baker and the Pork Pistols will be performing 6 nights at the Sturgis Rider Café® which is located at the brand new free access area – Crossroads at the Buffalo Chip.

If you don’t know who Donnie Baker is, you’ve never listened to The Bob and Tom Show. Donnie’s a permanent fixture and fan favorite on that hugely popular national syndicated radio program. Back when he first started calling into Bob and Tom, I worked with him at Wiley’s Comedy Club, Dayton, OH. Although I knew he was very funny on-air, I wondered if he could bring the same level of funny to the stage. He and his band did just that. The sold-out crowd loved the show. I had a blast myself that night and hoped I’d have the opportunity to work with Donnie Baker again. So I am very happy to announce that this summer, I will again be sharing the comedy stage with him.

This August 3-11 will be my 4th year slinging jokes at the Legendary Buffalo Chip Campground for the 72nd annual Sturgis Motorcycle Rally (I’ll be there all nine days). If you’ve followed my adventures from previous years, you know that adding comedy to that big biker party has been a challenge. But things just got a whole lot easier, for this summer. Not only are Donnie Baker and the Pork Pistols a perfect fit for the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally, but I have to believe they’ll draw a crowd. Comedy at the “Best Party Anywhere” just got ratcheted up a notch. And not only for those lucky enough to join the party, but also for those listening at home. Donnie Baker will also be sharing his exploits from the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally on Bob and Tom. Maybe if I annoy him enough, he’ll mention me?

Besides me and Donnie Baker and the Pork Pistols and lots of beautiful bikini models…..Sugerland, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Journey, Loverboy, Boston, Zach Brown Band, Erich Church and Shinedown will also be at the Chip this summer. More great bands to be announced in the coming weeks. Hope to see you there too!
