Sponsored by KIOA, Party in the Park brings beloved, classic bands to the sprawling grounds of Water Works Park for a daylong musical extravaganza. Headliners Joan Jett & the Blackhearts rock out with seminal hits such as “I Love Rock n’ Roll” and “I Hate Myself for Loving You.” Before the groundbreaking rockers take to the stage, KC & the Sunshine Band share the feel-good grooves of tunes such as “That’s The Way (I Like It)” and “(Shake Shake Shake) Shake Your Booty” with listeners.
Actively performing since the 1950s, The Spinners continue to dazzle audiences with soulful hits such as “Could It Be I’m Falling In Love,” which helped earn them a reputation as an influential R&B music group. Earlier in the day, Pablo Cruise, a quartet formed in 1973, harmonize on pop ballads such as “Love Will Find a Way.” Still donning the signature hat and eye patch from his days with his band The Medicine Show, Dr. Hook lays down tunes in the form of “The Cover of the Rolling Stone,” an ode he wrote to streaking in an avalanche. Opening the day is Chuck Negron, the former lead singer of Three Dog Night and smooth belter of such singles as “Jeremiah Was a Bullfrog” and “One is the Loneliest Number”.
