A native of Sturgis, S.D., Cain has become a leading figure for female rock performers in the motorcycle culture, serving as the headliner for the Easyriders Bike Show & Rodeo for three consecutive years. Cain has also served as the main act at the Full Throttle Saloon in Sturgis, which is featured nationally in a television series airing on TruTV.

Cain is the songwriter, lead vocalist and bass player for her band that has produced three self-released albums: “The Inside” in 2004, “Lock & Keys” in 2008 and “Highway Prophet” in 2011.
Named the Just Plain Folks Music Association’s 2009 Female Artist of the Year and awarded the JPF 2009 Song of the Year for “Give Me Love,” Cain was named Nashville’s Music City Mayhem Female Rock Vocalist of the Year in 2011 and 2012.

Cain will perform from 1-2:30 p.m. Friday, Aug. 17, and from 10:30-a.m.-noon Saturday, Aug. 18 the 6th Street Stage in the IMS infield near the Interactive Display Area.

Indianapolis’ Lynda Sayyah will perform from 3:15-4:45 p.m. Friday, Aug. 17 on the 6th Street Stage. She has an impressive five-octave singing range and is often compared to superstars Mariah Carey and Christina Aguilera.

Sayyah appeared on the CW4’s first episode of “The Next Pussycat Doll” and has collaborated with rapper Hum V. in producing their single, “Look In My Eyes,” that was formerly the No. 1 requested single on Indianapolis Top-40 radio stations. Sayyah speaks English, Spanish and Arabic and plans on releasing albums in all three languages.

Brent James & The Contraband will bring its classic rock sounds to the 6th Street Stage from 4-5:30 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 18.

An up-and-coming rock performer and songwriter, James won the top prize in 2010 at the Broadcast Music, Inc., Florida Music Festival in Orlando, and has been featured on Crazed Hits, Enemy Radio and ReverbNation. James has spent this summer writing songs and touring with Papa Roach, Hinder, Alice Cooper, Stone Temple Pilots and Candlebox.

The concerts are included in the regular $20 general admission for the RBIGP practice session Friday, Aug. 17, and qualifying Saturday, Aug. 18. Children 12 and under are free when accompanied by an adult.
