Classic Rock Showcase on tap August 12 in Selkirk
Get ready to Rock the Waterfront! On August 12, Waterfront Park will be the place to be, especially for those who enjoy their classic rock and roll. Rock the Waterfront hits the stage on that Saturday evening with a pair of classic rock tribute acts that have been generating a buzz this summer.
Bed of Roses, a group is considered by some to be the ultimate Bon Jovi tribute show, headlines the 2017 edition of Rock the Waterfront with sets that follows the history of the New Jersey rocker from his many hits of the 1980’s to present day.
“A Bed of Roses show is a true Tribute to Bon Jovi performed in authentic costuming, voice, music and showmanship,” says a statement on the band’s website. “With over 12 costume changes throughout the show, Bed Of Roses takes you on a journey of the entire 30 year history of Bon Jovi.”
Leading off the evening will be Travelin Band, a tribute to Credence Clearwater Revival, one of the most popular groups in North America in the 1960’s through the 1970’s.
Both groups feature veteran performers who have been touring Western Canada throughout the summer drawing big crowds and enthusiastic response. Both recently performed at the Rockin’ on the Red Festival this past July in Lockport, MB.
There is no admission to attend this live, outdoor event at one of the premier venues of its kind in the province. A 2015 nominee for Interlake Tourism Event of the year, Rock the Waterfront may well be the highlight of your summer on banks of the Red River.
Event organizers remind everyone that no events of the Waterfront Concert Series are ever cancelled. Should weather prove to be too bad to play outdoors, the bands will move indoors to the Selkirk Recreation Complex.
So pull up a lawn chair, enjoy some great food vendors, and rock out to some great entertainment all night long! Rock the Waterfront – August 12th at Waterfront Park in Selkirk. .
