Band On The Run starring Denny Laine with Chad and Jeremy | 7:00 PM
Denny Laine celebrates the 40th anniversary of the "Wings Over America" tour with a live on stage performance of their greatest album, "Band on the Run" --complete and unabridged!
By far the most successful album involving any of the Beatles following their breakup, "Band on the Run" was created by Paul McCartney, Denny Laine and Linda McCartney. With Paul McCartney on vocals, piano, drums, guitar, bass, and keys, and Denny Laine contributing vocals, keys, acoustic, electric and bass guitars, and Linda on keys and vocals, Band On the Run transcended the era to become an album whose deep cuts such as "Let Me Roll It", "Picasso's Last Words", and "Mrs. Vanderbilt" and "Bluebird" are better remembered-and played more often on classic rock radio-than most hits of the era.

Expect other Wings hits such as "Live and Let Die", and "Time to Hide" as well as Denny's legendary lead vocal on the Moody Blues classic "Go Now" to round out this special anniversary show.

Also on the bill; Chad and Jeremy an English singing folk rock duo originating in the 1960s, comprising Chad Stuart and Jeremy Clyde. Jeremy often sings the melody of a song while Chad sings higher harmonies. They were part of the British Invasion, a large influx of British rock and pop musicians to the American music scene.
From humble beginnings in coffee houses and folk clubs in London, they were "discovered" by famed movie composer John Barry and recorded a string of hits (Yesterday's Gone, Summer Song, Willow Weep For Me, If I Loved You, Before and After, Distant Shores). As former drama students, they were quickly snapped up by Hollywood appearing as them-selves in legendary television shows including The Dick Van Dyke Show, The Patty Duke Show, Laredo and Batman. They hosted Hullabaloo and appeared on all the great variety shows like The Hollywood Palace, Red Skelton and Andy Williams.

Concession provided by Fireside. Pizza, beer, wine and water will be sold in the Tucker Room beginning at 6PM! Come enjoy some FANTASTIC pizza and a beverage as you wait!
