Take a nostalgic trip back to the 1960s and ‘70s with the Chicago-based Cornerstones of Rock as they bring the music of legendary garage bands to the Coronado Performing Arts Center stage.
The Buckinghams, the Cryan’ Shames, the Ides Of March, the Shadows of Knight and New Colony Six each distilled the wide variety of emerging and classic styles of the era into unique voices as vibrant and diverse as the Windy City itself. The Cornerstones of Rock show features the core members of these groups performing the songs first heard on WLS and WCFL, Chicago’s powerhouse radio stations. The popularity of these tunes spread quickly throughout the U.S., becoming “forever favorites” for millions.
