The tradition continues in 2022 with five Saturday concerts featuring classic rock, country, Tejano, and zydeco artists.
The first event is on April 23, followed by shows on May 7, May 21, June 4, and June 18. Families, friends, and visitors can bring picnic baskets, coolers, blankets, and lawn chairs for five nights of outdoor rockin’ fun.
The gates always open at 6 p.m., followed by the shows at 7. Free parking is available at Post Oak Mall, with handicap parking near Colgate Drive. Sorry, but pets are not allowed.
Here’s the lineup:
Texas singer-songwriter Max Stallings began playing the guitar as a graduate student at Texas A&M (whoop). He writes country tunes that connect by forming snapshots of his life by blending traditional country, folk, and Western swing with touches of classic rock, R&B, and jazz.
Queen Nation is a visual and musical tribute to Queen. The group’s image, sound, and stage persona strive to recreate the aura of the legendary originals. Queen fans are enthralled by the live performance of classics such as We Will Rock You, We Are the Champions, Bohemian Rhapsody, and more.
Changes is a musical tribute to one of rock’s most popular and enduring bands, Chicago. The band is loaded with talented musicians that have played together for more than 20 years. The bright and powerful horn section and authentic vocals recreate Chicago’s classic era.
Sunny Sauceda is a two-time Grammy Award-winning Tejano artist from San Antonio who is regarded as the world’s most energetic accordion player. His peerless playing abilities often overshadow his sultry but powerful modern voice.
No one captures the sound, style, looks, and complete essence of Selena like Karla Perez and her band. Perez has proven why she is regarded as the top-rated Selena Quintanilla tribute artist in the United States and Mexico.
Lil’ Nate’s unique sound, broad experience, and magnetizing stage presence are rooted in his childhood. At the tender age of five, he was introduced to rhythmic, southern Louisiana zydeco music, playing rubboard in his father’s band, the legendary “Nathan and the Zydeco Cha Chas.” The group captures the potency and eclecticism of the zydeco genre and makes you want to dance.
You may bring refreshments, but no kegs or glass containers are allowed, and coolers must be 48 quarts or smaller. Food trucks are also available.
