Staff Reports

The Douglas County Parks & Recreation Department 2015 GE Family Concert Series continues Friday in Minden Park featuring Savannah Blue, A Southern Rock Review.

Due to an injury to one of the band members of Imagine, A Beatles tribute, the lineup has changed.

“This six piece Northern California band is not just a tribute to one of the great Southern Rock Bands, but a salute to all of the best,” organizers said. “From Skynyrd to the Allman Brothers, from The Outlaws to The Marshall Tucker Band, from Molly Hatchet to 38 Special. Even some of the more obscure acts, like Wet Willie, Blackfoot and the Ozark Mountain Dare Devils are included in this all hits celebration of The Southern Rock era. Savannah Blue, A Southern Rock Revue is an all-out, full-throttle journey through the hits that made Capricorn Records, Georgia and all of the Southern U.S. an important and driving force in the international music scene.”

All concerts start at 6:30 p.m. and end at 8:30 p.m. with the exception of Aug. 28 which will start at 6 p.m. and end at 8 p.m.
