With the kids back in school, the sounds of summer will continue on September 14th

Few rockers from the 80's have maintained their level of fame like Bon Jovi. With
a voice that is hard to emulate due to its raw power and ability to belt out incredible

believe your eyes and ears when one of the best tribute artists in the world performs
this tribute to BON JOVI and rocks the core of the city.

this will be a memorable night for any classic country fan and a great opportunity
to introduce the young ones to some great music.
