True North sets winter concert series schedule

True North Radio Network has announce its 2017 Winter Concert Series. The concert series features five dates, all at the APlex Ballroom. This lineup features crowd favorites and great party bands.

The first concert will be a joint effort with True North Radio Network and the APlex. It will be a New Year’s Eve celebration featuring Tweed and Dixie.

The honest memoirs of country music’s forefathers and all-out rock and roll attitude collide within the beautiful contradiction known as Tweed And Dixie. Meeting somewhere between Waylon and Whitesnake, their sound has been crafted from growing up in the working class, grease-driven Motor City Madhouse and running the back roads of Great Lakes country. This is a great party band!

The band has appeared on stage at the Bay View Park Band Shell twice and was a hit last year at the Winter Concert Series.

Admission for this concert will be $15 per person and includes hot hors d’oeuvres throughout the night, pizzas, and party favors. There will be a cash bar. Doors open at 8 p.m. and the band will play from 9 p.m-1 a.m.

On Jan. 20, it will be Beach Party with Leaky Tikis and its tribute to Buffett and other beach fun. The Paradise Jimmy Buffett Show will play some of the greatest hits from the ’60s, ’70s and ’80s. As everyone settles in and gets in the sing along and dance along mood, the Leaky Tikis turn their attention over to lots of Jimmy Buffet’s greatest hits.

On Feb. 24, it’s The Rock Show featuring Tommy K. This bands salutes and pays tribute to ’70s and ’80s rock. It puts on an energetic and entertaining show. It has appeared at the summer and winter concert series and is one of the most requested bands.

March 17 will be Rockstar Tribute to 80’s Big Hair Bands. This band captures the feel and sound of all the great 80s Big Hair Bands. When the band takes a break, a DJ will play all the dance songs of the 80s.

Magic Bus takes the stage on April 7. The late Sixties, psychedelic music, peace and love. Let Magic Bus recreate the atmosphere for you. Its incredible musical abilities and authentic look will transcend the modern and jet you back to the Haight-Ashbury District of San Francisco in 1967.

All concerts cost $10 per person in advance or $12 at the door, with the exception of New Year’s Eve, which is $15. Doors open at 5:30 p.m., and the music is from 7 until 10. There will be a cash bar and concessions including Tony Burgers.
