On June 25, the Johnny Favorite Band brings the Johnny Throwback Motown Tribute to the Garden Theater. Take the Midnight Train on a journey back to Motown. Johnny Throwback offers you the instantly recognizable Motown Sound, the distinctively passionate singers, the irresistible rhythms and the timeless songwriting you love. On July 9, On Air is a Sacramento-based 11-piece classic rock band with a horn section, much in the vein of Tower of Power, Chicago, steely Dan, etc. On Air was voted into the top five of best area bands out of 279 groups on Sacramento’s A-List. Closing the series on July 23 is Mania! The Live Beatles Experience. Mania! is California’s Premiere Beatles Tribute Band, capturing the imagination of both young and old with their attention to detail.
