Rock N' Blues Concert & Car Show
The City of Casselberry will make its long-awaited return to big events with the Rock N’ Blues Concert and Car Show on Memorial Day Weekend on Saturday, May 29, from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. at Lake Concord Park.
More than a year after the pandemic struck and most events were put on hold, one of the city’s signature concert series returns with the Apocalypse Blues Revival headlining the free event.
The band was formed in 2018 by Shannon Larkin, Tony Rombola and Brian Carpenter. Larkin and Rombola had played together for more than 17 years with the rock band Godsmack.
But the duo always loved the blues and created this side project and put out a few albums. Recently, they added new singer Shane Hall and changed their name to Apocalypse Blues Revival and released their debut album in December 2020 to rave reviews.
All Music Magazine said this of the album: “My overall impression is the album is similar to 1970s music. It’s kind of a cross between Pink Floyd and Frank Zappa but with a heavy blues tones. This is an album that you need to listen to as it’s like nothing you have ever heard before. Put on the headphones and kickback. Journey to places you may have been, or to places you may haven’t experienced yet. Apocalypse Blues Revival has put together a road map to guide you out of the dark.”
Because of Covid-19, the City will follow recommended CDC guidelines to ensure social distancing for viewing, masks requested for people walking around the park and hand-washing stations throughout the park.
Along with the music, there will be more than 100 classic cars ranging from Camaros to Chevelles to Mustangs, and there will be five food trucks.
As part of this Memorial Day Weekend celebration, the City will again honor those who died while in military service with a color guard display. Parking is available at area businesses, and disabled parking is in front of the Casselberry Police Station.
Note: All events and activities are subject to change and/or cancellation.
