  • Jason Mraz mentions WIXX Winner On-Stage!

    Posted by Corey Carter

    Jessica and Jason Mraz

    Last week we gave away tickets to see Jason Mraz at Summerfest along with Meet and Greet passes.  

    It always makes us happy when we have winners that are so apprciative of the prizes (as opposed to the ones who say "uhhh..what did I win?")

    Here is an email and some pictures we recieved from our winner Jessica:

    (Thanks Jessica we love you!!!)

     

    Thank you so much for the opportunity to bid on a meet-and-greet with Jason Mraz!  It was definitely something super special that I will never forget.  I had the biggest grin on my face from morning 'til night!  Jason was so cool, laid back, loved just chatting with his fans.  I told him a story about how I was singing his song "You And I Both" in my car at the top of my lungs when I looked over to see a cop using the two-finger keep-your-eyes-on-the-road sign.  Whoops!  Jason looked at me and said "that's a really good story."  He must have meant it because just before he sang that song that night, he said "This one's for Jessica..."  I was freaking out!  I have to add that your contact person, Elana, was wonderful.  Thank you so much WIXX for the best day ever!!  Here's some pics to prove it actually happened!

     
    Love, 
    your fan for life,
    Jessica Dotzauer

     CHESTER BENNINGTON and MIKE SHINODA from LINKIN PARK recently did an impromptu, unplugged version of ADELE'S"Rolling in the Deep".  It's actually pretty awesome. 

  • Rock USA - The Show Goes On!!

    Posted by Corey Carter

    ROCK USA UPDATE!!

     

    The festival grounds are now drying up very well.  Rock USA is currently under a massive

    repair project with heavy equipment creating huge pedestrian walkways for accessibility

    to all areas of the concert grounds including portable restrooms, beverage tents, food

    and vendor areas.  Our first priority is to create a “user-friendly” festival site for the rock

    fans.  Areas that were muddied are being scraped, smoothed out, compacted and

    smothered with up to 40 semis of bark chips. Campground roads are also being repaired.

    When all is said and done, the repair project will cost us in excess of $100,000 but we are

    committed to make Rock USA the best it can be.

     

    The show will go on.  We personally thank all who endured the challenges of the

    Country USA rains and welcome RockUSA fans to…sunny, blue skies and a great event.

  • Hip Hop Show IN Green Bay

    Posted by Corey Carter

    I'm a fan of many different types of music, so I'm excited to have a real Hip-Hop show coming to Green Bay in a few weeks.  I know we hear a LOT from WIXX listeners about the lack of hip-hop concerts in this area, so check THIS out...as WIXX is proud to welcome GORILLA ZOE and NAPPY ROOTS:  June 4th at Brown County Arena!!

     

    Rapper, Gorilla Zoe, is an Atlanta Rapper who was formerly part of the Boyz N da Hood group. He boasts a raspy voice, slow flows and simple rhymes. His first solo album, Welcome to the Zoo was released in October of 2007, which peaked at #18 on the Billboard Top 200, #3 on Top Rap Albums, and #8 on Top R&B Albums. His newest album “King Kong” is set to release June 2011.

     

    Nappy Roots is an American alternative Southern Southern rap quintet that originated from students attending school in Bowling Green, Kentucky in 1995 and is best known for its hit single “Awnaw.” Since their independent album was released in 1999 the group created a multi-platinum selling album “Watermelon, Chicken & Gritz”. This fan favorite has worked with Kanye West, David Banner, and Lil Jon.

  • Who ELSE is at Rock USA?

    Posted by Corey Carter

    We're all SUPER excited to see Daughtry, KISS and Journey at Rock USA this summer.

    Here are some of the other bands at Rock USA that we're also pumped about:

     

    Hollywood Undead (LOVE this new song we're playing on WIXX)

     

     

    BUCKCHERRY (a HUGE WIXX Hit "Sorry")

     

     

    Puddle of Mudd (this my favorite song from them...because I used to work with a crazy woman who this song reminded me of when it was popular "Psycho")

     

    KORN:  (This is a classic "Freak on a Leash")

     

  • Mailman Run Over By His Own Truck

    Posted by Corey Carter

    This is pretty funny video and kinda scary.  How many of you have accidentally left your car in drive or reverse (or neutral) and then gotten out (or almost gotten out)...I think the scary part is that I could see this happening to me...
