Do you have a passion for 70’s classic rock? How would you like to see Bob Seger, KISS, Molly Hatchet and more this weekend? Unfortunately, only one of the above will be here in person. The rest of these famous artists and bands will be here in spirit as they are represented by tribute bands doing their best to look and sound like the real thing.
Starting off the weekend on Friday at 7pm, catch Kiss Alive at The Sunrise Civic Center Amphitheatre, located at 10610 West Oakland Park Boulevard. They tour the United States but hail from Broward County! These guys recreate the early and historic KISS shows with a passion for all that is KISS. Bring a lawn chair or blanket and enjoy the stars in more ways than one! In the event of rain, Friday’s concert will be held inside the Sunrise Civic Center Theatre.
Chester’s Harley Davidson will be celebrating the opening of their newest location at 201 International Drive in Sunrise starting on Friday night with free food, giveaways, and Jimmie Van Zant. Saturday night, you will have to make a choice between Molly Hatchet or Bob Seger. Molly Hatchet (band) will be headlining the weekend long grand opening of Chester’s Harley Davidson at 7:30pm. Molly Hatchet is an American southern rock/hard rock band formed in Jacksonville, Florida, in 1975. They are known for their hit song “Flirtin’ with Disaster” from the album of the same title (according to Wikipedia).
Also Saturday night, The City of Parkland free concert series presents a Tribute to Bob Seger. Remember such hits as “Against the Wind”, “Night Moves” and “We’ve Got Tonight” while sitting back in your lawn chair at Pine Trails Park starting at 7pm. Food Trucks will also be on site serving both gourmet and fast food so don’t worry about diner. This could be a great family outing for Mother’s Day weekend or a romantic evening for two!
This article would not be complete if I didn’t mention the group, Classic Rock Therapy, at Coconut Creek’s “Home Grown Concert series”. This monthly event takes place at a stage set up inside a beautiful park at the Coconut Creek Community Center on Lyon’s Road, just south of Coconut Creek Parkway. Classic Rock Therapy, known to fans as CRT is not necessarily a tribute band but will be bringing back memories of Grand Funk, Hall & Oates, Beatles, Romantics, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Led Zeppelin, Steely Dan, J Geils band, CCR, and the Bee Gee’s just to name a few of their toe tapping covers.
Other venues offering outdoor concerts include the City of Pompano Beach Music Under the Stars at A1A and Atlantic Blvd featuring Love Muscle on Friday May 10th from 7pm-9pm. Don’t forget the City of Hollywood has three outdoor stages every weekend with a great variety of music too long to list here but check out their website for a complete calendar.
As always, keep an eye on the WeekendBroward live music events calendar for the most up to date listings of live music from Hollywood to Delray Beach!
