Memories of the Summer of Love - August 23 to 25, 2018

Travel back to a time of Peace, Love, and Good Vibrations. A journey from innocence to experience is explored with tales of the music and social conditions of a decade that changed America.

The trip begins with the Beach Boys music from the early 60s. Along the way we experience the British Invasion with Gerry & the Pacemakers and Herman’s Hermits; and the pop music of the Monkees and Sonny & Cher. A little further down the road, we are immersed in the folk and protest songs of Peter, Paul & Mary, Bob Dylan, Gordon Lightfoot, and Joni Mitchell. The trip culminates in a recreation of the Monteray Pop Festival in San Francisco during the Summer of Love.

You’ll be swept away by the music of Janis Joplin, the Byrds, the Association, Jefferson Airplane, Simon & Garfunkel, and the Mamas & Papas. Relive the music and emotions, the struggle for change at the heart of the 60s, and rekindle the spirit of the Summer of Love.

Rockin' All Night - August 30 to September 1, 2018

At 12:55am on February 3rd, 1959, a small single engine plane took off from an airfield outside of Clear Lake, Iowa. Its three young passengers had just finished a raucous, sold-out concert and were heading for their next tour stop. Just minutes after takeoff, the plane went down. Some say that’s “the day the music died.”

Rockin’ All Night celebrates the music and lives of three of the hottest rock ‘n roll stars of the 50s – Buddy Holly, Ritchie Valens, and the Big Bopper – whose remarkable lives and music were tragically cut short. But imagine one more concert, if you could, where you would hear all their greatest hits including such memorable songs as That’ll Be the Day, Peggy Sue, Everyday, Not Fade Away, Maybe Baby, Donna, Tell Laura I Love Her, La Bamba, White Lightnin’, and Chantilly Lace.
