Break out the picnic baskets and tie dye on Saturday, because Yesterdayze is the featured act in the first of three monthly concerts at Longboat Key's Town Center Green.
Tickets are available at the Chamber of Commerce office during office hours, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. Tickets cost $25 for general admission.
“We have about 173 people already coming,” vice-president of marketing and development Christine Rothberg said. “We have 60 tickets we gave to Michael Saunders as well.”
The real estate company is the top sponsor for the event. The Longboat Key Club, Observer Media Group, Secur-All Insurance Agency, Cadence Bank, Wrightway Emergency Services and Grant’s Gardens are also sponsoring.
“Yesterdayze band is accessible music for all,” Rothberg said. “It’s so universal that it appeals to a lot of different people.”
The band has performed all over the United States and in Canada, local events include Music on Main, Ringling by the Bay and Friday Fest.
“We’re playing Savor the Sounds for the first time and looking forward to it very much,” band member Alex Kinlaw said. “It’ll be a blast.”
Billed as the “Flower Power Happy Hour,” Yesterdayze plays Top 40 hits from 1960-69, clad in head-to-toe tie dye, of course. The band covers everything from The Beatles to The Supremes.
Only half the VIP tables are available this year because of construction at the Town Center Green. The 10 that were available sold out, and general admission sales have gone swiftly as a result.
Capacity at the Town Center is 250 people, and this may be the first year tickets aren’t available at the gate.
