For the Sounds of Summer Concert Series, Carnival of Cruë is a Florida based Mötley Crüe Tribute band made up of some of the best musicians in Florida.

Concert-goers can expect to hear all of their favorite Mötley Crüe hits, such as “Home Sweet Home”, “Wildside” and “Girls Girls Girls.”

For the Star Spangled Summer Concert Series, Rushour is a mind-blowing recreation of a real Rush concert.
 Rush may be one of the hardest bands to portray, but Rushour is as close as you can get. Their dedication to note-for-note playing, and the amazing vocals that sound just like Geddy Lee will astound attendees. Expect all the classic songs, including “Tom Sawyer,” “Limelight,” “2112,” “By-Tor & The Snow Dog,” “Anthem,” “A Passage to Bangkok” and “Subdivisions.”

From KISS American, concert attendees can expect to hear great fist-pumping anthems and sing-a-longs like “Detroit Rock City,” “I Was Made For Loving You,” “Strutter,” “Lick It Up,” “Cold Gin,” “Shout It Out Loud,” “Rock And Roll All Night,” “Love It Loud,” “Forever,” “Beth,” “Heavens On Fire,” “Black Diamond,” “Shock Me” and “Crazy Nights.”
