  • Summer of Love



Celebrate the 50th anniversary of the music, memories and spirit of the Woodstock Generation, the music that changed the world, at Glen Burtnik's Summer of Love, coming to Mayo Performing Arts Center on Friday, May 5, 2017 at 8 p.m.

Tickets are $29-$59.

Glen Burtnik, alumnus of Styx and the original Beatlemania (he played Paul), touring bassist/vocalist with the current version of ELO, major label recording artist and hit songwriter ("Sometimes Just Love Ain't Enough" - Don Henley/Patty Smyth, "Spirit of a Boy, Wisdom of a Man" — Randy Travis, and others) brings you the Summer of Love Concert. The Summer of Love Concert focuses on iconic rock music from the period of time generally between the 1967 release of The Beatles revolutionary album Sgt Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band and the famous Woodstock Music and Art Festival in 1969.

Joined by 12 or more performers including a horn section, strings, keyboardists, percussionists, background vocalists and an incredible rock rhythm section, the Summer of Love Experience recreates "note for note and absolutely live" the songs, and the psychedelically flavored spirit, of the Woodstock Generation. "I've always had a playlist on my IPod named The Summer of Love. I'm actually a hippie at heart. The music of that era is probably what moves me the most," said Burtnik in a recent interview.

The concert includes music by The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, Dylan, Creedence Clearwater Revival, Janis Joplin, Jimi Hendrix, The Doors, Santana, Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young, Jefferson Airplane, The Association, The Turtles, The Beach Boys, Scott McKenzie, Mamas and the Papas, Country Joe, Ravi Shankar, Procol Harum, Joe Cocker, Melanie, The Spencer Davis Group, Cream, The Youngbloods, and many more nuggets and surprises from artists like The Rascals, Chicago, The Zombies, Tommy James and The Shondells, Mountain, Otis Redding, Sonny and Cher, Sly and The Family Stone, Canned Heat, The Strawberry Alarm Clock, Barry McGuire and more! The songs run the gamut from the psychedelic songs to rockin' album tracks to a sprinkling of now hip Top 40 pop from that era.

To further enhance that "Experience," The Summer of Love Concert also features Marc Rubinstein's Pig Light Show, which is recognized as one of the most famous psychedelic light shows in rock history and is well known for its use in the late 1960s as the house light show at Bill Graham's legendary New York City concert hall, the Fillmore East.
