June 29th brings us a rare opportunity with the USAF Heartland RAPTOR’s on stage at 7pm sharp. This 11 piece rock band with the excitement of horns provides classic rock, pop, Latin and a little R&B thrown in for good measure. RAPTOR’s capabilities are diverse, presenting music in the style of Chicago, Tower of Power, The Beatles & Stevie Wonder. The high level of talent showcased by each musician together with the spectacular singing of RAPTOR’s vocalists enables the group to perform with unparalleled excitement and versatility. This is a must see attraction and we are lucky to have gotten them into our 2012 schedule. Don’t be late as this show is intense and scripted for time. BYOC.
It's that time of year again!!!
