Legendary rockers ZZ Top are coming to rock the Coca-Cola grandstand. This iconic group will bring their own twist on southern, blues based rock back to the stage. ZZ TOP a/k/a “That Little Ol’ Band From Texas,” lay undisputed claim to being the longest running major rock band with original personnel intact and, in 2004, the Texas trio was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. This is sure to be a night to remember at the Fair.
The Georgia Satellites were one of the most ferocious bands of the 1980’s. What set them apart from the other 10,000 groups that cranked their amps to 11, was that their wild riffs and tanked cries came from a quartet that understood its place in rock tradition and fought hard to solidify it with each recording. As their current live shows illustrate they have expanded forever the limits and the promise of what a band can do with three chords (well, sometimes only 2) played harder than ever before. From their bar band roots to their chart-crashing mega hits to their current tour of sold-out shows, The Georgia Satellites have kept the world moving to sweet, gritty, three-chord rock n roll.
