And Now (Maybe), The Heritage Fest Headliner Band You’ve Been Waiting For…Hold Your BIC’s High for…

night-ranger-portrait…Night Ranger!

Woooooo!  A San Fran 80’s band with some pop tunes that hit the radios, mainly “Don’t Tell Me You love Me”, “Rock in America”, and “Sister Christian”.  I saw these guys with 38 Special in the 80’s, and that concert at Poplar

I had no idea Tully was a Night Ranger fan...

Creek I think is still ringing in my ears: it was the single loudest concert I have ever attended, and it was outdoors.

Don’t be fooled by the pop singles, this is a hard rock band that was  a tad more the pretty boys than Motley Crue, Van Halen, or Ted Nugent, and presaged bands like Bon Jovi and Guns n’ Roses, and out of all six of the bands mentioned here are best suited for the summer festival circuit, and will probably put on a scorching show.

Beckman rarly talks about his days as ZZ Top's drummer.  It would be awesome to get ZZ Top next year and talk Bruce back onstage.

    This too can be yours for the low, low price of only $16,500.

    Plus: 10 single hotel rooms, local transportation and $1500 for “backline.”

    If they bunk at the Tivoli Hotel we can save a few bucks and have them walk.

    Hilarious, Thoman. And thanks for the tip on the noise level. I can save the price of a ticket and listen from my backyard patio.
