KEEL And KIX Confirmed For ROCKLAHOMA 2009 Festival

On Monday, January 26 at 7:00 p.m. EST, singer Ron Keel will announce on "Eddie Trunk Live" on Sirius/XM Radio that the reunited KEEL has been confirmed for a prime slot on the main stage at the third annual Rocklahoma, set to take place July 9-12, 2009 on the Catch The Fever Festival Grounds in Pryor, Oklahoma.

"We are so proud to have such a prestigious spot on the Rocklahoma bill," Ron states. "This festival is the big one that started it all and was certainly one of our goals when we reunited. We can promise you when KEEL hits the stage we are going to pack twenty years worth of energy and sweat into our one hour show!"

In addition to KEEL, the organizers of Rocklahoma have announced the return of KIX, including frontman Steve Whiteman, guitarists Ronnie Younkins and Brian "Damage" Forsythe, drummer Jimmy "Chocolate" Chalfant and bassist Mark Schenker, all of whom will be performing on the main stage.

Over the next few weeks, the entire lineup — including the headliners — will be announced.
