Tesla – Civic Center Theater September 13th
September 13 @ 7:30 pm - 10:30 pm
Tesla may have been born in the mid 80s eruption of leather, spandex, and big hair, but this band has never been about those things. Their soulful sound is strongly embedded in the roots of organic, authentic, 1970s rock — the same roots that produced bands like The Allman Brothers, Grand Funk Railroad, AC/DC, Lynyrd Skynyrd, and Aerosmith.
From their iconic hard rock hits, “Modern Day Cowboy” and “Little Suzi” to their Top 20 ballad, “Love Song,” Tesla developed a strong fan base through the 80s and 90s. Their stripped down Five Man Acoustical Jam inspired many major bands to perform similar acoustic storytelling shows and produced one of their most well known songs, a cover of Five Man Electrical Band’s “Signs.” Tesla has continued to release new original music and sell out venues all over the world, giving audiences exactly what is expected — unpretentious, straightforward, bluesy rock and roll.
