Tickets are on sale NOW for two great fund-raising events, starring some of the biggest names in Chicagoland Rock of the '60's.
First up ... catch The New Colony Six at The Arcada Theatre on Sunday, April 19th.
The show kicks off at 4 pm with special guests The Cadillac Casanovas, Denny Diamond ... and promises several other surprises. MC-ing the whole event will be Chicago Sports Broadcasting Legend (and frequent Forgotten Hits contributor) Chet Coppock who ... believe it or not ... worked as a roadie for The New Colony Six at the peak of their career!!!
Several groups can lay claim to being part of our best loved Local Heroes ... among them The Cryan' Shames, The Buckinghams, The Ides Of March, The American Breed and The Shadows of Knight ... but the group that started it all ... the group that kicked down the doors so that all of the other groups could step on through ... was The New Colony Six!!!
SEVENTEEN charted local hits (including EIGHT Top Ten's) ... and they'll be playing most of them (along with some brand new music) on Sunday, April 19th. Proceeds benefit The Rhythmic Arts Project. Tickets range from $29 to $69.
