Blue Öyster Cult

The Fabulous Thunderbirds

For over four decades, Blue Öyster Cult has been thrilling fans of intelligent hard rock worldwide with powerful albums loaded with classic songs. Indeed, the Long Island, NY-­-based band is revered within the hard rock and heavy metal scene for its pioneering work. Blue Öyster Cult occupies a unique place in rock history because it's one of very few hard rock/heavy metal bands to earn both genuine mainstream critical acclaim as well as commercial success.
The band is often cited as a major influence by other acts such as Metallica, and BÖC was listed in VH1's countdown of the greatest hard rock bands of all time.
For over 30 years, The Fabulous Thunderbirds have been the quintessential American band. The group’s distinctive and powerful sound, influenced by a diversity of musical styles, manifested itself into a unique musical hybrid via such barnburners as “Tuff Enuff” and “Wrap It Up”. Co-founder Kim Wilson, the sole original member, still spearheads the group as it evolves into its newest incarnation.

“The thing about the T-Birds is that they can play both blues festival and rock venues,” Wilson comments. They’re a diversified band now and everybody’s on the same page.

Monte Perlin

Tyler Suess
He was Arnold Swartzenegger’s stunt double in Terminator 3. He also acted in the movie, The Wager, starring country music legend Randy Travis. Meet Monte Perlin. If you ever have a need for a motorcycle expert, he’s your man. After all, he’s been riding since he was a kid and now is one of the most respected stuntmen in the business. Don't miss his Globe-O-Cross show at Northern Thunder!
Miss Illinois 2013, Tyler Suess Will be available for meet and greets at Northern Thunder 2015. Tyler is a member of the International Bikini Team and was model of the month for March 2013. She was Hooters Girl of the Year in 2014 and is a member of Hooters International Training Team. She assisted in opening 13 new Hooters locations, including the grand opening in Osaka, Japan.
Erik Estrada is famous for his dynamic portrayal of Officer Francis 'Frank' Poncherello affectionately known as “Ponch” in the hit, 'CHiPs', and became a household name.
Erik received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame which he proudly dedicated to all the women and men in law enforcement.
Erik continues to be a great supporter of police officers organizations and has actually joined the ranks of law enforcement six years ago by becoming a sworn reserve police officer for the Muncie P.D. in Indiana and a sworn deputy sheriff in Bedford County in Virginia.
