Peachtree Corners Town Green Hosts Summer Concert Series

Published

on

Everclear

These hot Saturday nights will be made even hotter by world-class music.

The City of Peachtree Corners recently announced the lineup for its 4th annual Summer Concert Series at the Town Green in the Town Center. The free concerts take place at 7 p.m. on the last Saturday of the month from May through October. Fans are encouraged to patronize the many restaurants located within the Town Center and can also bring their own food to the Town Green. 

If you’ve been to the Town Center recently, you’ve seen a lot of construction in process. The city is expanding the Town Green playground and completing the next segment of the multi-use trail to connect from the pedestrian bridge along the creek to Peachtree Corner Circle. Some portions of the trail have been opened, but pedestrians are asked to respect the orange fencing around the active construction sites. The goal is to complete the construction before the start of the summer concerts.

May 28: Spin Doctors with Last Chance Riders

The Spin Doctors are best known for their early 1990s hits “Two Princes” and “Little Miss Can’t Be Wrong,” which both were featured on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. Thirty years and a thousand twists the Spin Doctors will also be the last men standing, still making music like their lives depend on it and still staking the room.

Atlanta rock band Last Chance Riders will be opening the evening up taking the stage at 7 p.m.

June 25:  Brotherhood (Doobie Brothers Tribute) with Guardians of the Jukebox (80’s cover band)

Brotherhood, a Doobie Brothers tribute band, is made of up of eight veteran musicians who were brought together by their love of Doobie Brothers’ music. They honor the original group, including two drummers and a percussionist, two guitars, bass, and keyboards, and all the vocal harmonies that made the Doobies incredible sound.

80’s Cover band juggernaut Guardians of the Jukebox will open the evening taking the stage at 7 p.m.

July 30: Everclear with Hushmoney

Considering Everclear has written and recorded some truly iconic ’90s alt-rock hits, it would be all too easy these days for the band to be a victim of its past successes, relegated to performing as a glorified jukebox, existing to satisfy the nostalgic cravings of Gen Xers everywhere. But singer-guitarist Art Alexakis isn’t about to start phoning it in now. Everclear continues to tour extensively, and while it’s a virtual surety that no Everclear gig is complete without a rendition of “Santa Monica” and “Father of Mine,” lately the band has found that exploring the full range of past material—especially the “deep cuts”— not only gives fans a rare treat, but it also injects new life into the band’s live dynamic.

Peachtree Corners own Hushmoney will be opening the evening hitting the stage at 7p.m.

August 27: Stayin’ Alive (Bee Gees Tribute) with The Mike Veal Band

Stayin’ Alive offers audiences the sounds and sights of a full Bee Gees play list, singing blockbuster such as “Night Fever,” “How Deep is Your Love,” and “Jive Talkin’,” Stayin’ Alive is the quintessential tribute band to the Bee Gees capturing the excitement of live performance and the tender subtleties of the human voice.

Atlanta’s The Mike Veal Band will open the evening by taking to the stage at 7 p.m.

September 24: Vertical Horizon with All The Locals

In 1999 Vertical Horizon signed with RCA and experienced meteoric success with “Everything You Want” selling over two million copies. The title song captured the #1 spot on the Billboard’s Hot 100 and went on to become the most played single of 2000. Today’s Vertical Horizon shares the practices of most long-enduring acts: different creative personnel have entered and exited, adding to the ever-expanding sonic tapestry.  Experienced bands also run the gamut where it comes to variety, and Vertical Horizon is no exception here.  Genres, styles, sounds are the band’s “tools of the trade,” but they’re used with such variety — such intricacy — that it’s a challenge to “classify” the band’s sound.  Sure, it’s rock, but nuances mean so much.

Atlanta based All The Locals will kick the evening off at 7 p.m. 

October 22: The Purple Xperience (Prince Tribute)

Marshall Charloff’s Purple Xperience is a five-piece group hailing from Prince’s birthplace, Minneapolis, MN.  They have been touring around the country since its inception in 2011 by Dr. Fink, member of Prince’s band, The Revolution, and front-man Marshall Charloff – bringing the greatest and most authentic production of His Royal Badness in the world to audiences of all generations. Since it began, Purple Xperience has entertained well over 300,000 fans and has shared the bill with The Time, Cameo, Fetty Wap, Gin Blossoms, Atlanta Rhythm section and Cheap Trick.
