Final Tribute Concert featuring AC/DC's Hell's Bells!

September 08, 2011
You have one more chance before the end of the season to see a nationally touring tribute band. The season began with a tribute to the band Aerosmith named Draw the Line. The band, which drew one of the largest crowds of the season at that point, performed and looked like clones of their rocker friends from Boston. They were followed by the band, 7 Bridges, which was a tribute to the Eagles. 7 Bridges rocked the house with standing ovations of the 1200 persons showing up on State Street to hear the sounds of the 80’s. The third band, The Frontiers, performed songs of Journey for another packed house. The tribute band season will end with Hell’s Bells, “the best AC/DC tribute band on the planet” according to Rolling Stone Magazine.
