Every fall, the thunder of motorcycle exhaust echoes throughout Northwest Arkansas during Bikes, Blues & BBQ.

But it’s not quite loud enough to drone over the sound of the music that plays on local stages as a result of the annual rally, which begins Wednesday (Sept. 28) and continues through Oct. 1.

During the course of the rally, dozens of bands will play on various stages throughout Fayetteville, and local venues will also get in on the action and cater toward the thousands who will visit because of the rally.

Click on the link at the end of this story to see the list of performers, which are spreading their talents between venues such as the Dickson Street main stage area and the Arkansas Music Pavilion.
