 Tesla 737x400 Follinger


Wednesday, September 25 at 7:30 p.m.

TESLA's bluesy, soulful sound is strongly embedded in the roots of organic and authentic 1970s rock and roll. Their 1986 platinum debut album, Mechanical Resonance, included Top 40 hits "Modern Day Cowboy" and "Little Suzi." The band continues to record and release material, including nine new albums since 2000, and recently debuted their new single, "Time To Rock!" Fans will be able to sing along to the group's early 90's classic hits like "Love Song," "Signs," and "What You Give." TESLA is a celebration of the greatest spirits of rock and roll.

Rocky Horror 4800x2700sm

Friday, September 13th 2024, 8:00 p.m. and Saturday, September 14th 2024, 12:00 MIDNIGHT

The original stage version of the cult movie is now LIVE on stage; see Dr. Frank N. Furter match wits (?) with the innocent young newlyweds? Thrill to the delightfully trashy rock and roll music! It isn’t a play, it isn’t a musical, it isn’t a rock concert…It’s a sort of glitter, rock, horror, comedy, transvestite circus… And if you love-say, Sound of Music-you will probably hate it. The Rocky Horror Show is a sicko-wacko-weirdo rock concert. It keeps trying to blow your mind with loud music and perverted sexuality, but is so simpleminded, and so completely silly, that it ends up being a lot of fun. It may get a cult following.

Rick Springfield 

Rick Springfieldsm

Thursday May 23, 2024 – 7:30PM

Over the past four decades, Rick Springfield "FULL BAND ELECTRIC" has worn many hats as an entertainer and performer. The creator of some of the finest power-pop of the ’80s, a Grammy winning singer, songwriter, and musician who has sold 25 million albums and scored 17 U.S. Top 40 hits, including “Jessie’s Girl,” “Don’t Talk to Strangers,” “An Affair of the Heart,” "I've Done Everything for You,” “Love Somebody,” and “Human Touch.” He’s an accomplished actor who has starred opposite Meryl Streep in the feature film “Ricki and the Flash,” gave a chameleonic performance as the creepy Dr. Irving Pitlor in HBO’s prestige drama “True Detective,” earned great reviews for his portrayal of Lucifer on the CW hit “Supernatural” and most recently played the insane Pastor Charles on FX’s worldwide hit series “American Horror Story.” An author as well, both his candid 2010 memoir Late, Late at Night (which Rolling Stone named one of the 25 greatest rock memoirs of all time) and his 2014 comedic novel Magnificent Vibration earned rave reviews and spots on the New York Times Best Sellers’ list. In 2014, Springfield was honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, located around the corner from the first apartment he lived in when he first arrived in the U.S. from Australia in 1971. Springfield’s Sirius-XM radio show, Working Class DJ, is a huge hit and airs weekly on 80s on 8. His new album “Automatic” is out now. Automatic is his first album of all new original material in 5 years.
