Heritage Sandy Springs Museum and Park Feb. 28 announced the lineup for the 2019 season of Concerts by the Springs, a free outdoor spring/summer concert series held one Sunday evening each month, May through September.
Celebrating its 23rd season, Concerts by the Springs is a tradition that brings music and community to Sandy Springs. Concerts are held from 7 to 8:30 p.m. on The Sandy Springs Society Entertainment Lawn at Heritage Green, located at 6110 Blue Stone Road in Sandy Springs.
“I love the Concerts by the Springs,” Sandy Springs resident Teri Cloud said in a news release. “I see a lot of my neighbors and friends in the community. My kids love the concerts because they get to run around the springs and play. We even bring our dinner and drinks. The concerts are a wonderful, whole-family dance-the-night-away time.”
The 2019 season series is as follows:
May 12: The Return — Concerts by the Springs will kick off on Mother’s Day with The Return. This band has brings back the fun, the energy and the excitement of the pop culture sensation that came to be known as “Beatlemania.” With authentic stage gear, suits, boots, mop tops, and a set list packed full of No. 1 hits, their likeness to what you may have seen back in 1964 is incredible!
June 9: Saved by the Band — This group will rock the springs with hits from the ’90s, ’80s and beyond. Their music includes songs from some of the most well-known bands to get up and dance to, including Weezer, Talking Heads, AC/DC and Whitney Houston.
July 14: Departure — This band replicates the look, sound and feel of the original ’80s rock super-group Journey. The five band members are the original lineup and have developed an amazing on-stage chemistry. These musicians pride themselves on giving their audience an incredible high-energy, qualitative stage show from start to finish.
Aug. 11: Atlanta Brass Cats — This band will have everyone dancing on the green with their 10-piece rock band with horns recreating the inspiring sounds of Chicago, Blood, Sweat & Tears, Paul McCartney, Stevie Wonder and more!
Sept. 8: Band X — Billed as “Atlanta’s favorite party band,” this group will play hits from the ’70s, ’80s, ’90s and current favorites. Band X is a high-energy group of talented musicians and lead singers. Many of the band members have major touring experience performing with artists such as Paul Rodgers, Mickey Thomas and others.
