Day 4 (as well as 3) of the GEICO Motorcycle Hot Bike Tour 2016 continues to roll in Maryville, Tenn’s Smoky Mountain Harley-Davidson / The Shed Smokehouse and Juke Joint on Saturday September 10. Picking off from Friday night with the special two day stop there will be planned group rides between the two nights.

The Shed Smokehouse & Juke Joint is located adjacent to Smoky Mountain Harley-Davidson® in Maryville, Tennessee. The Shed is a 16,000 square-foot mega watt outdoor covered pavilion and host to outdoor concerts and events. The Shed hosts musical groups with a wide genre of musical styles, from Americana to Southern Rock and Country. The Shed’s musical season is April through September; concerts take place weekly on Saturday nights. The Shed has hosted musical groups like The Kentucky Headhunters, Unknown Hinson, Ray Wylie Hubbard, Leon Russell, Eddie Money, Blackberry Smoke, and Billy Joe Shaver.

The venue’s décor is stone fire pits, vintage chandeliers, barn wood, galvanized tin siding, and twenty-foot murals with statements like “Live Music is Good for the Soul,” this place feels as down-home as pinto beans, cornbread and sweet tea. We do our best to provide an environment that is unique and comfortable to both artist and listener. We love it when everyone is having a great time. The Shed is a venue where you pull up a chair, eat some of East Tennessee’s best home cooking and enjoy a great show. Events at The Shed will take place rain or shine.

The stops will also feature vendors, 100 foot drags, stunt teams and daily features.

Also at each stop of the Hot Bike Tour along with the other stops will be the Hot Bike and Baggers Invitational Build-Offs.
