Among the many diverse genres of music, along with the multitude of styles and influences that make up our local music scene, none have the time-tested appeal and blending of the generations as the Classic Rock genus.
Although Classic Rock appeals mainly to those adults who were the original fans of the music, many Classic Rock acts consistently attract new generations of fans while lending their own style and passions to the music, and offering a fresh feel to familiar songs.
This week’s featured band, “Mid-Life Crisis” takes a classic Rock music mix and blends their intense passions, stellar musicianship, and high octane energy with their innovative style and their in-your-face stage shows that when put all together makes for a musical experience of the most distinctive kind.
