Enjoy (re)visiting the Summer of Love!
When you experience this show you get to see, hear, and feel the far out vibes and sounds of the greatest 60's rock legends. With costume changes, this 6 member band brings to the stage greats of the 60's and 70's rock era, with a psychedelic ending you won't want to miss. They bring the nostalgia of the Love Generation and Flower Power days back to those who lived it and to a new generation fascinated by it.
