For this year’s 2012 Cedar Rapids Halloween Bash, the Cedar Rapids Titans and the freshly minted Eastern Iowa Sports Complex celebrate the season of the witch with family activities, a costume contest, and a performance by multiplatinum pop-rockers Little River Band. Formed in 1975, they became the first Australian band to break out from Down Under and reach American audiences, scoring two Top Ten albums within eight months of life. Music fans were immediately smitten with their instantly comfortable sound. Singles such “Reminiscing” and “Lady” caressed the radio waves with sultry keyboards, shimmering guitars, and tender harmonies that slipped onto the ears like an old shoe. International tours with fellow mellow superstars such as The Eagles and America helped the group become a polished touring machine, and by 1985, Little River Band had 16 hit singles under its little river belt.
For their Halloween Bash performance, longtime bassist and lead vocalist Wayne Nelson sails his five-piece squad through a set of gold and platinum gems. The band cooks as they open a treasure chest of soft rock sing-alongs, from peppy pop anthems such as “Help Is on Its Way” to the funky hits “The Other Guy” and “Man on Your Mind.” After the show, fans get the chance to meet the band, possibly snag photo opportunities, and find out where the Big River Band drowned.
Eastern Iowa Sports Complex
Lush green fields roll outside of Eastern Iowa Sports Complex’s titanic facility. Throughout the week, guests from all over the region sprint across the full-size indoor soccer field, practice slugging within indoor batting cages, and hone their short games on an 18-hole miniature golf course. They can also be found hooping it up in full-size basketball gym and actually braving the elements on the facility’s three outdoor athletic fields.
Throughout the year, young players can sign up for the complex’s recreational programs, and adults can work out excess competitiveness in sporting leagues and athletic tournaments. The facility also hosts dance classes, community events, hourly field rentals, and a full-service pizza restaurant.
