On Saturday, October 18th, the Grand Junction Rockestra brings the blues rock and boogie woogie to Robinson Theatre with special guest artists, ZZ-3, a renowned ZZ Top tribute band from South Dakota. The concert begins at 7:30pm and will revisit a few ZZ Top tunes performed in past years by the GJ Rockestra as well as many brand new hits all newly arranged and orchestrated by Rockestra director Calvin Hofer.
ZZ-3 is the baddest ZZ Top tribute band in the land. Their faithful recreations of ZZ classics from every era of the band’s existence, convincing costumes, and spot-on stage show set them apart from other tribute acts. From the swaggering Texas shuffle of ‘ La Grange’ and ‘Tush’ to the bombastic electro-rock din of ‘Legs’ and ‘TV Dinners’, the ZZ-3 experience is sure to satisfy your need for blues and boogie woogie.
The October 18th concert will mark the first time a guest artist has been invited to join the Grand Junction Rockestra for an entire show. Hofer first saw ZZ-3 while on a motorcycle trip to Sturgis a few years back and immediately sought out the band about coming to Colorado to perform.
The concert is sponsored by Alpine Bank.
