“[D]on’t fret fellow millennials – this ongoing concert series engages audiences of all ages, especially for funk lovers. If you consider James Brown and Wild Cherry your scene, dancing in the pouring rain to the Blacklites as they perform on the WAER Main Stage is an unforgettable experience. With an energetic stage presence and howling 12-piece band, there was no way you could stand still during their performance.”
