This year, to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the iconic 1969 Woodstock Music and Art Festival, The Summer of Love Concert will be including a set of songs from the film “Woodstock” and the multi-million selling album “Woodstock - Music from the Soundtrack and more” and well as video projections that will transport you to that very special time!
The Summer of Love Concert focuses on iconic rock music from the period of time generally between the 1967 release of The Beatles revolutionary album Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band and the famous Woodstock Music and Art Festival in 1969 with music from artists like The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, Dylan, Creedence Clearwater Revival, Janis Joplin, Jimi Hendrix, The Doors, Santana, Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young, Jefferson Airplane, The Association, The Turtles, The Beach Boys, Mamas and the Papas, Country Joe, Ravi Shankar, Procol Harum, Joe Cocker, Melanie, The Spencer Davis Group, Ike & Tina Turner, The Rascals, Chicago, The Zombies, Otis Redding, Sonny and Cher, Sly and The Family Stone and much more!
The Summer of Love Concert was created by Glen Burtnik, alumnus of Styx, the original Beatlemania on Broadway (he played Paul), touring bassist/vocalist with the current version of ELO, The Orchestra, member of The Weeklings, major label solo recording artist and hit songwriter. The Summer of Love Concert cast is comprised of approximately 15 performers including a horn section, strings, keyboardists, background vocalists and an incredible rock rhythm section who faithfully re-create “note for note and absolutely live”, the songs and the psychedelically flavored spirit of the Woodstock Generation. "I've always had a playlist on my IPod named The Summer of Love. I'm actually a hippie at heart. The music of that era is probably what moves me the most," said Burtnik in a recent interview. To further enhance that experience, The Summer of Love Concert features Marc Rubinstein’s Pig Light Show which is recognized as one of the most famous psychedelic light shows in rock history and is well known for its use in the late 1960’s as the house light show at Bill Graham’s legendary New York City concert hall, the Fillmore East.
