River Rock At The Amp Summer Concert line up set

Posted: Updated:

WARREN, Ohio - The schedule is set for River Rock At The Amp summer concert series' seventh season.

Click here for a list of concerts and events.

For music fans who are ready to rock, this season promises 10 tribute bands and a national headliner, Southside Johnny & the Asbury Jukes.

"They're a Springsteen genre from Asbury Park, New Jersey, they're phenomenal and we're also bringing in a Moody Blues tribute with a 50 piece, the Chagrin Falls Orchestra," said Ken Haidaris, president of Sunrise Entertainment.

The first show of the season is set for May 25, and ZOSO will take the stage accompanied by opening act: The Gary Makarsky Project.

The line up is expected to draw music fans from the area and out of town.

Tourism goals were exceeded in 2012 and this summer is expected to be a repeat.

"A lot of people like to say it's from the shale industry, yes that's helping, but we also have people who are looking for things to do," said Stephanie Sferra, executive director of the Trumbull County Tourism Bureau.

Sferra says the more popular concerts can draw up to 7,000 people, which is the news local eateries and hotels like to hear.

"We get people here from the Pennsylvania area, we get people here from even Columbus," she said.

Friday Night Flicks are a new addition for families to enjoy movies beginning at dusk. At 9 p.m. on Fridays beginning June 21, free movies will be on the big screen at the Amp.
