We love them. Tribute bands sing every hit we grew up listening to.  We can sing every word from these classic hits.  And Blue Ocean Music Hall is paying tribute to our memories with a cool series of concerts.

Sidebar, look at this live view from the Blue Ocean.  Obviously, if you're reading this at night then I'm sure it's not as exciting, but it's literally on the beach.

...or belting out tunes in the shower before your 21st birthday celebration, this nostalgic music triggers our emotions some way, somehow, and we love it.


Live music any way we can get it, even for a casual night out with friends, is a super healthy idea for all of us.

According to the Blue Ocean website, bands paying tribute to Journey, U2, The Who, Billy Joel, Led Zeppelin, Dave Mathews Band, Queen, Grateful Dead, and Chicago to name a few, are taking the stage throughout March and into spring to take us down memory lane.

Table service as well as the bar are your options for food, drink, and that much needed night out as live music makes a comeback.
