Finish Up the Summer with the Final Piedmont HealthCare Friday After 5 Concert
The 2023 Piedmont HealthCare Friday After 5 Summer Concert Series will finish up the 2023 season this Friday night starting at 5:30pm featuring Chicago Rewired: The Premiere Chicago Tribute Band and preceded by REO Survivor & Co. as we say goodbye to summer.
Finish Up the Summer with the Final Piedmont HealthCare Friday After 5 Concert Featuring Chicago Rewired and REO Survivor & Co.
Chicago Rewired: The Premiere Chicago Tribute Band is a tribute to “Chicago©” – one of the longest running pop/rock groups in history with record sales topping 100,000,000 including 21 top 10 singles, 5 consecutive number one singles, and 5 gold singles. The band comprises a unique blend of talented and seasoned musicians joining forces with the common goal of accurately replicating the timeless music of “Chicago©”- the soundtrack to great memories for so many people.
The members of Chicago Rewired – The Premier Chicago Tribute Band feel very fortunate to play the music that they love and to share their passion. It is their sincere desire that at every performance the audience have as much fun as they are having on stage. Come out to the show, forget about the cares of life for a while, and let the music carry you away.
To start the show off, the five core members of Chicago Rewired were sparked with the idea to create a secondary tribute act that was hard driving, fist pumping, rock and roll force. From this idea, a hybrid tribute to the bands REO Speedwagon, Loverboy, and Survivor called REO Survivor & Co. was born. Due to this opening act, Friday’s show will begin earlier than other concerts at 5:30pm.
