Bikeriders Tour is a chance for a couple of old friends, Lucero lead singer Ben Nichols and tattoo artist Oliver Peck, to hit the road doing what they love... riding motorcycles around the country, singing songs, and tattooing.
 
In each city, Oliver does tattoos at local shops during the day and each night Ben plays an acoustic solo show at a nearby venue, with Oliver acting as host and MC. Ben did the first Bikeriders Tour by himself in 2011, riding his ‘07 BMW R1200GS. The following year Oliver and a handful of other tattooers joined on their Harleys and since then they’ve carved out a week or two each year to travel together. Music, motorcycles, tattoos, and good times. This year renowned Cleveland tattoo artist Greg Christian will be coming along as well. 
 
Simpson Motorcycle Helmets and White Knuckler Brand knives were kind enough to sponsor the tour. They donated helmets and handmade knives to be raffled off each night, with the money raised going to American Core, a nonprofit involved in veterans mental health. 
 
The tour is named after a Lucero song called “The Bikeriders” which was based on Danny Lyon’s famous book of photographs from the ‘60’s. The book inspired the song and the song inspired the tour. Ben still rides the same bike he started the tour on in 2011.

He is one of the most traveled tattoo artists on the circuit, tattooing all over Europe including England, Ireland, Italy, Germany, Sweden and Norway and in the Far East, including Japan and Thailand.

Peck is co-owner of Elm Street Tattoo in Dallas, TX and the owner of True Tattoo located in Hollywood, CA.

Kenny Feidler

Kenny Feidler’s sound is dark, gritty, western rock n roll filled with thoughtful, honest songwriting. Feidler’s path to the stage started on the rodeo circuit, writing songs about the life and selling his music from the trunk of an old Cadillac. Now he racks up the miles with his band, traveling from his home on the plains of Western South Dakota, to fill up bars and dance halls across America’s Heartland.

In 2024 Feidler has already shared the stage with Colter WallJosh Meloy, and Reckless Kelly. With multiple singles due to release this year and over 150 million streams in his career, it’s hard not to view this as a breakout moment for Feidler. However, Feidler is just grateful to make a living making music .

“I’m really thankful to do this” Feidler says, “To have folks care about my songs and for my band to be able to make a living, it’s just a really fortunate hand we’ve be dealt.
