Badge Bash V Concert Weekend at The Bluestone hosted two nights of music featuring Burning Rain and The Lost
Trailers, satisfying both rock and country fans, August 15 and 16.

Burning Rain’s all-star lineup of Keith St. John (Montrose), Doug Aldrich (Dio, Whitesnake), Sean McNabb (Dokken)
and Matt Starr (Ace Frehley) headlined a night of incredible rock 'n roll for the weekend long Badge Bash V event
organized by Get Behind The Badge Organization, benefiting the families of fallen and injured police officers and
fire fighters.  

Fans at Friday's "Rock Night" were surprised by an extra special performance when Tesla’s drummer, Troy Luccketta,
stopped in after Tesla’s show at Newport Music Hall ended for the night. Luccketta joined the guys in Burning Rain on
stage for an impromptu jam session of a few Led Zeppelin tunes.

The weekend concert continued on Saturday evening with "Country Night." Country fans were treated to performances
by Simba Jordan Band, The Lost Trailers and other local acts. There was also a special performance by the Columbus
Police and Fire Pipe and Drums to honor fallen comrades.

Other events surrounding the Badge Bash V were the 2014 Turkey Bowl First Responders Charity Football Game held
at Westerville Central High School,  the Eric Brill Sporting Clay Competition at Black Dog Farms and the 11th Annual
Terry McDowell Memorial Poker Run. The events wound up on Monday the 18th with the Get Behind the Badge
Memorial Golf Outing at Winding Hollow Golf Club.
