EXCLUSIVE ACOUSTIC PEFORMANCE FOR PLATINUM, GOLD & GREEN VIP HOLDERS!!


THURSDAY OCTOBER 2 @ HOLIDAY INN EXPRESS!!



No three year wait this time around! Fresh from a successful event this past September, we're doing it all over again October 2014 at Chicago's H.O.M.E. Bar (www.homebarchicago.com) from Friday October 3 – Sunday October 5, 2014.

MelodicRockFest 4 (www.melodicrockfest.com) is taking everything that made show #3 great and ramping it up even further. More cult bands, more old favourites and even more Swedes!

MRF4 will be North American fans' first ever chance to see some of the most in demand European rock bands, including AOR stars Work Of Art; hard rock heroes The Poodles and Europe's most popular melodic rock band – H.E.A.T!

Joining them for the 3-Day rock extravaganza are some of the USA's most respected and admired melodic rock artists for a series of 'greatest hits, full band sets' – Stan Bush, Mitch Malloy, Johnny Lima and Paul Laine.
And there's still more as classic hard rockers Heaven's Edge bring their acclaimed reunited lineup to MRF as do Christian rockers Guardian, playing a rare live show with their classic formation.

Additional MRF first- timers include classic rock superstars Shooting Star, and a trio of Sweden's acclaimed melodic rock scene artists - House of Shakira, Degreed and Grand Design. Norway's Faith Circus will ensure it isn't an all-Swedish affair!

Returning to the party from MRF3 are Adriangale, Tango Down, Bombay Black, Crossing Rubicon and Maxx Explosion, who will deliver a longer set after their very late night MRF3 cameo.

Very popular new comers The Radio Sun from Australia will also return in a duel role – performing songs from their debut album in their own set and also reprising their role as Paul Laine's backing band for Paul's first ever foray down under. Featured in Paul's best of set will be tracks from his cult classic Stick It In Your Ear album as well as songs from his time in Danger Danger and the Shugaazer project.

Also returning is the ever popular Mecca, who will once again be joined by a popular special guest – Mr. Jimi Jamison! Together the guys will again dig deep into the catalogue for some fan surprises. There's also the chance of a second very special guest…

MRF4 will also mark the very special live debut of 2 brand new projects!

L.R.S. is killer new project featuring vocalist Tommy La Verdi (21 Guns), Josh Ramos (The Storm, Two Fires), Michael Shotton (Von Groove, Airtime) and Alessandro Del Vecchio (Eden's Curse, Revolution Road, Edge of Forever). The band will make their debut live performance at MRF, performing songs from their debut album as well as fan favourites from 21 Guns, Von Groove & The Storm!
Preview the debut LRS single! LRS - Living 4 A Dream

Lost Angeles is the other new project, this one featuring Paul Sabu, Dennis Dries and Eric Ragno. Each member paid their dues on the Sunset Strip, which took them far beyond! Their appearance at Melodic Rock Fest 4 will feature songs from their upcoming debut CD, along with classic tracks from Only Child, White Sister, Tattoo Rodeo and Paul's solo work! Eric says, "We're all great friends. Dennis & I have been swapping demos over lunches for awhile now, and I found an incredible chemistry with Paul Sabu in the records we did over the last two years. Dennis & Paul are both great singers, and their new songs have with a powerful honesty that really moves me. And I wanted the world to hear that. We've been looking for a reason to come together and see where our strengths might take us, and Andrew gave us that with MRF4. We respect each other's talents, we laugh a LOT and we're recording at our own pace. We're still rounding out the lineup – an LA lineup!- We're having a real blast as we learn how to drive this thing. It's great to be part of a street gang again."
Paul comments, "Playin' the show with such monstas as Eric Ragno and Dennis Dries. How cool is that...I guess really cool... So now we're already into a new killer album that we'll be kickin' off at the Festival...Glad to be back in the McNiece family again!"
Dennis adds, "I have to thank Eric and Paul for dragging me out from under the rock I'd been hiding under for the last couple of years. I feel reborn, and that I now have some brothers to carry the spirit that got me into music in the first place. Paul and I connected right away, and it feels like only a few months have passed since the Tattoo Rodeo days ( I can still hear him singing background vocals so high dogs would come running). Eric is a true rock dog, and I can't thank him enough for being involved in the last White Sister show ever in 2009. His keyboard work speaks for itself, and we're creating some exciting material together. I'm looking forward to hitting the stage with my bruthas and cranking out some familiar songs, and some new stuff to rattle your ears!"
Here's a snippet of a rough mix from the upcoming album. More info at www.lostangelesmusic.com - Lost Angeles - Home (Rough Mix, Edit)


Cult rock project Loud Lion will be MRF special guests for a mini-acoustic set featuring some of the songs from their long lost (now found) one-off album. The band's driving force of Bleu McAuley and Taylor Locke will hang around to mingle with fans over the weekend.

Rounding out the MRF4 lineup is hard rockers Talon, who will debut tracks from their new studio album and perform alongside Stan Bush as his backing band, the very task they handled brilliantly back in 2002 at the UK Gods Festival.

Mark Giovi (Far Cry) returns in his new band Romeo Riot and 7th Heaven will come up with something special and close out Friday night with one of their regular late nite shows, with low cost entry after 11pm for their local fan base.


All the expected highlights and plans for MelodicRockFest 4 are impossible to summarize in one press release, so expect further updates and details to come over the coming weeks and months. Tickets for MRF4 will go on sale Wednesday January 15 at a precise time to be announced soon.

Various VIP options are available for the festival as well as standard General Admission tickets for each day.

An exclusive pre-show acoustic set from Sweden's H.E.A.T. is planned at the event hotel for the Thursday night (October 2). Further details of this even will be announced soon, but it is restricted to Green, Gold & Platinum VIP ticket holders ONLY.


Work Of Art: "We're super excited to play MRF4. I had a blast playing MRF3 with WET so I'm delighted to be able to come back and play with Work Of Art this time. Hope to see you all there!!” – Robert Sall.

Talon: “Talon is very proud and honored to be playing at MelodicRockFest 4 - with our original lineup back together and a new CD released before the show it will be a truly amazing weekend. The entire band - Michael O'Mara, Kory Voxen, Jim Kee, Eric Ragno, Phil Keller and John Parker – are looking forward to tearing it up in Chicago by playing some of our classic songs along with a few new ones that will debut at MRF4! We are also honored to be the backing band again for our friend Stan Bush - it was a memorable experience playing with him 10 years ago and it will be a joy to play his classic songs for everyone again. A huge thank you to Andrew McNeice for the opportunity, and John Kivel for the support of all the bands and fans that will make this an amazing weekend! We want to see everyone there for every band as this lineup just kills! See you all in October my friends!” – John Parker

Adriangale: “It's an honor and privilege to have once again been asked to participate in MelodicRock Fest with Adriangale, especially after we had such a tremendous experience at MRF3 with our comeback show.  We're looking forward to seeing old friends, making even more new ones, and putting on the best show possible for the most amazing fans you could ask for.  See you all at MRF4!" – Vic Rivera.

Grand Design: “Finally, finally, finally!! Grand Design on MRF 4!! We are sooooo thrilled to get the chance to rawk iddup! Grand Design on U.S soil - yesssssssssssssss!”

Faith Circus: "Greetings from under the big top! Well...we've just pulled the caravan over to the side of this dusty old Highway and were thinking "what better time to check in with all the circus freaks out there"?! We are extremely honored & excited to be part of MelodicRock Festival 4! And most of all we're proud of our main man Andrew (McNeice) for his relentless work to make this festival a reality once again! A big man, with a big heart (& set of balls!)!! As indicated we have been given the second slot on Friday (03.10.14), being the "newcomers" that we are! Never the less...we see this as a win/win situation!... First of all it's FRIDAY and people are revved up for the weekend and ready to ROCK (+ no one's hung-over...yet!)! Second...this gives us plenty of time to check out all the other great acts on the bill, hang with you guys ... as well as working on our own hangover...for both Saturday & Sunday!! So keep spreading the word about FAITH CIRCUS and we look forward to seeing old & new fans in Chicago come October!!"
