Here’s what’s on tap for this free concert event.
Three performances by three incredible bands
- Vintage Flight: With killer rock classics in their arsenal like Led Zeppelin’s “Dazed and Confused” and the Who anthem “Won’t Get Fooled Again,” along with their own incredible originals, Vintage Flight are often compared to the many epic bands they admire, and their tight, high-energy live performances evidence why people make the comparison.
- The Bend: This young band left audience members stunned at the first Classic Covers Cool Cars concert, where their rendition of contemporary classic rock songs like “Highway Song” by Greta Van Fleet and “Creep” by Radiohead left people spellbound.
- Near Summit: Influenced by and performing the works of rock legends like Aerosmith and Guns N’ Roses, this four-piece alt-rock band hits audiences at full throttle with fuel-injected performances that linger long after the amps have stopped smoking.
Cool classic, muscle and exotic performance cars on display
