The Hanover Wind Symphony and the You Choose Band will reprise their highly successful collaboration from last summer to present a fun-filled "Rock 'N' Winds '70s Night 2" tailgate party and family concert, beginning at 5 p.m., on Saturday, June 22, at the Ukrainian American Cultural Center (renamed the DMC Athletics & Rehab Arena at the Ukrainian American Cultural Center for the evening), 60 N. Jefferson Road, in Whippany.
The Acoustic '70s tailgate party will be held from 5 to 6:45 p.m. The Rock 'N' Winds '70s Night show begins at 7 p.m.
At the tailgate party, you can choose to have your favorite tune played by either the 70-piece Hanover Wind Symphony or the 10-piece You Choose Band, or both. The cost for a song request is $55 per request.
Who can forget the music of the '70s? You remember--Led Zeppelin, Dire Straits, ELO, solo McCartney and Lennon, Crosby, Still & Nash, the Bee Gees, Fleetwood Mac, Donna Summer, Elton John, and even Disco. You'll hear them all at this '70s nostalgia fest.
A portion of the proceeds from the event will benefit the non-profit Hanover Wind Symphony.
As a highlight of the Rock 'N' Winds '70s Night, three songs will be auctioned off, with auction winners coming up onstage and singing lead vocals.
For the first song, "Sweet Home Alabama" by Lynyrd Skynyrd, whoever places the highest bid at the event can sing lead with the YouChoose Band.
The second song, "Summer Nights" from the Grease soundtrack, is a duet that will be auctioned off to two people. The winners will sing with the YouChoose Band.
The third song is "Don't Go Breaking My Heart" by Elton John and Kiki Dee. This is a duet for two people and the two people whose bids are the highest will sing this with the Hanover Wind Symphony and the YouChoose Band.
Says HWS conductor Matt Paterno of Parsippany, "This event is an exciting and unique opportunity to blend the rock and classical idioms into a cohesive musical whole. The colors and attributes of all the instruments involved are combined in very interesting ways."
