Fort Lauderdale, FL — September, 2010 — With its ability to not only draw some of rock’s classic rock stars, but also today’s modern rock powerhouses, Shiprocked has gone celestial and welcomes aboard as this year’s concert event Emcee and Host, satellite radio femme fatale voice of Octane, The Boneyard and Message Amped, cosmic radio beauty, Kayla. So in another coup, Shiprocked has shown the “boys club” of rock that a chick has the goods to lead the festivities.
After years of working New York radio gigs, from ABC to CBS to her current home Kayla was able to migrate and rejoin her former PD and mentor, popular metal DJ Jose Mangrin. Since 2002, Kayla has gone from Hard Attack (now Liquid Metal) to working on Octane 20/48 where she still resides Noon to 6PM (ET) Mon-Fri and 3-9PM on weekends, and it’s just recently that she moved from a 3 year stint with Classic Rewind to her new home on The Boneyard bringing audiences the best in hard, heavy classic rock from 6AM to Noon on a daily basis. But not all is the “highway to hell” for Kayla as she also hosts The Message Amped 66/32, a Christian rock show, on Saturday nights at 11PM (ET).
Kayla’s stoked to be a part of this year’s nautical Rock and Roll party as well, “having heard about the Shiprocked cruises for a couple of years now, I am absolutely stoked to be apart of it in 2010. With this great mix of classic veteran bands and young and brash new bands, what better way to enjoy the mix than with some sun and drinks and with an awesome extended rock family. I’m so grateful to be one of the hosts for this incredible experience!!”
And in his return from 2009, the Tour Bus’ very own Ralph Sutton will be co-hosting Shiprocked with Kayla – a virtual one-two punch of two of the today’s great rock radio voices. Sutton, is the founder and co-host of the Tour Bus, a long running syndicated rock radio show currently on over 50 stations and part of the Envision Radio Network.
Shiprocked 2010 features performances by Cinderella, Tesla, Vince Neil, Sevendust, Drowning Pool, 10 Years and Black Stone Cherry. In addition, the rock never lets up as The Letter Black, Aranda, Lynam, Broken Teeth, Niki Barr Band and Pianotarium.
