Would you like to be on the same bill as iconic Canadian rockers Tom Cochrane with Red Rider, along with Trooper?

Otter Creek Jam Fest is giving local bands and musicians the chance to do just that.

“When we first got the idea for Otter Creek Jam Fest, we wanted to ensure there was some local entertainment participating in the event,” said Bill Wolsing, co-producer for Otter Creek Jam Fest. “Once we gather the band entries, we’ll open up the online poll on April 1. After a month of voting, the top four bands will receive a paid gig and will be on the same bill as Tom Cochrane with Red Rider or Trooper.”

An online entry form is available now at ottercreekjamfest.com.

The full contest rules are available on the Otter Creek Jam Fest website as well.

Otter Creek Jam Fest is a two-day music festival being held on the Civic Holiday long weekend on Aug. 2 and 3.

Tickets for the festival are available now at ottercreekjamfest.com. Day passes are $39.95, weekend passes are $69.95, while VIP day passes are $79.95. All rates are subject to taxes and fees.

Tom Cochrane with Red Rider, famous for hits such as “Life Is A Highway” and “Lunatic Fringe,” will headline the second day of the festival on Aug. 3.

Trooper, famous for hit singles “We’re Here for a Good Time” and “Raise A Little Hell,” will be rocking the Wallaceburg stage as the headlining act on Aug. 2.

Crush, a Bon Jovi tribute band, will be performing on the Friday, while Aeroforce, an Aerosmith tribute band will be performing on the Saturday.

The location of the festival is on the property at the corner of Margaret Avenue and Kimball Road, on the outskirts of Wallaceburg, owned by Wallaceburg-area farmer, Dennis Debot.
