Each night headlines a popular tribute band, starting with Aquanett, who pays homage to the hair metal scene most popular in the ‘80s. The Grateful Dead (Blues for Breakfast), Def Leppard (Adrenalize), Michael Jackson (Who’s Bad) and other greats are immortalized.
Concerts are scheduled for Wednesday nights, and are free to the public.
Each show takes place downtown, in the Green Island Bridge Parking lot, north of the bridge. August shows, however, will be moved to Riverfront Park.
