Glen Burtnik--alumnus of Styx and the original Beatlemania, touring bassist/vocalist with the current version of ELO--brings you the Summer of Love Concert Experience. The Summer of Love Concert focuses on iconic rock music from the 1967 release of The Beatles Sgt. Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band to the famous Woodstock Festival in 1969. Joined by 12 or more performers including a horn section, strings, keyboardists, percussionists, background vocalists and an incredible rock rhythm section, the Summer of Love Experience recreates "note for note and absolutely live" the songs and the psychedelic spirit of the Woodstock generation. "I've always had a playlist on my iPod named The Summer of Love. I'm actually a hippie at heart. The music of that era is probably what moves me the most," said Burtnik in a recent interview. The Summer of Love Concert includes music from artists like The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, Bob Dylan, Creedence Clearwater Revival, Janis Joplin, Jimi Hendrix, The Doors, Santana, Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young, Jefferson Airplane, The Association, The Turtles, The Beach Boys, Scott McKenzie, Mamas and the Papas, Country Joe, Ravi Shankar, Procol Harum, Joe Cocker, Melanie, The Spencer Davis Group, Cream, The Youngbloods, and many more nuggets and surprises from artists like The Rascals, Chicago, The Zombies, Tommy James and The Shondells, Mountain, Otis Redding, Sonny and Cher, Sly and The Family Stone, Canned Heat, The Strawberry Alarm Clock, Barry McGuire and more! The songs run the gammet from the psychedelic songs to rockin' album tracks to a sprinkling of top 40 pop hits from that era. Jean Mikle, feature writer for the Asbury Park Press and Pulitzer Prize finalist writes "The Summer of Love Concert, led by Glen Burtnik... was, for me, one of the highlights of this year's concert going experience...and...I go to a LOT of shows." So come relive the memories, share the spirit (with family and friends) and celebrate the songs of the Woodstock generation, the music that changed the world." We hope to see you soon!
