Live music is a huge improvement on canned music, which takes up valuable pantry space and often spoils into noxious free jazz.

The sounds of the ‘50s and ‘60s straighten the ties and flip the hairdos of the 21st century at Richard Nader’s Summer Doo Wop Reunion XXIII. Herman’s Hermits starring Peter Noone sees the original lead singer return to the role that vaulted him into ‘60s pop-idol stardom when he was just a 15-year-old kid from Manchester. The Hermits’ foot-tapping melodies and Noone’s sing-songy lyrics skip hand-in-hand through hits such as “I’m Into Something Good” and “There’s a Kind of Hush.”
Pennsylvania-choirboy-turned-teen-idol Lou Christie plugs in high-voltage vocals for “Lighting Strikes,” the 1966 chart-topping track that demonstrates the legend's three-octave range and fear of thunderstorms. Also taking the stage, Kenny Vance and The Planotones redefine rock ‘n’ roll’s adolescence by freshening familiar favorites with soaring vocal harmonies in signature songs such as “Looking for an Echo.” Other performances include The Capris, The Edsels, Cleveland Still and the Dubs, and Tommy Mara and the Crests.
Before the show, from 4:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m., a tailgate party entertains guests with a parade of classic cars and an outdoor a cappella stage. At the party, fans can also fetch autographs, snap pictures, and compare pompadours with the performers.
Due to security restrictions, G-Passes must be printed out and presented in person at the event. They cannot be redeemed through Groupon's mobile app.
