  Tom Petty This Friday, August 17, at the Beverly Art Center...
and on the 24th at Skokie's Backlot Bash

This summer, we wanted to make sure to pay tribute to one of our all time favorites - an American legend, and one of the great rock and roll songwriters of all time - Tom Petty.

Twangy guitars over rich organ beds, driven by rock solid bass and drums are the sound that catapulted Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers into the spotlight, but it was the evocative lyrics and strong melodies that kept them there. And as Tom moved into his own spotlight, his legend grew, and he took his place among the greats.

We will present hits and deep cuts that span his amazing career in loving tribute to a legend who is still building his legacy today. We will take the stage at the fabulous Beverly Art Center this Friday, August 17th, to bring his music to all our South Side fans - but Northsiders, don't despair, you will have a chance to catch this show in a festival atmosphere at the Skokie Backlot Bash on the following Friday, August 24th.  Both shows are all-ages so skip the sitter and bring the kids along.  You can't lose!

Hide the brown M&Ms and take the spandex out of the closet, because Van Halen is up next! Virtuoso guitar, slamming rock grooves, and infectious vocals are the hallmarks of the mighty VH - and we will capture it all for you. You'll hear many of their multitude of hits, and a couple deep cuts as always.

They are truly one of the all time greatest hard rock bands - but they've had their shake-ups through the years. We've tried to keep all our original members together, and in that spirit we will be playing ONLY the David Lee Roth years - 1972-1985 - no Hagar, no Cherone. We're not making any judgements about what came after, but it was not Van Halen to us.

Curt Morrison will be bringing it all night, along with a special guest or two, and Steve Frisbie will be joining us as well for what will be a bombastic, energetic, and exuberant night of ROCK with a pop flair that only Van Halen could really pull off while staying at the top of the hard rock pyramid.

So come on out and bang your head with us - taste the unbridled joy and energy that'll be exploding from the stage! It'll be a rock.....Eruption!

The U2 show is now officially SOLD OUT.

Thanks to all who got their tickets, we'll see you at the show!

Raise your hand if you realized they formed in 1976.  1976!  “BOY” came out 4 years later, and “I Will Follow” was eventually played by every high school rock band in America.  It was the 5th album, “THE JOSHUA TREE,” that made them the biggest band in the world in 1987.  The brilliant “ACHTUNG BABY” heralded a much needed reinvention in 1991, and somehow in the 2000’s U2 would still rank in the upper echelons of mainstream pop. 

All along, they have stayed together.  4 guys, who met when a 14 year old drummer put a flyer on his Dublin school’s notice board seeking musicians for a new band.  Their perseverance alone is remarkable.
