The Molly Ringwalds

with special guests The Return

Saturday, July 1, 2017

8:00pm, Gates Open at 7:00pm

 

The Molly Ringwalds are The World’s Greatest 80’s Experience. Hailing from Sheffield, England, this legendary quintet has been able to combine their individual and very formidable talents to create the true essence of the most radical decade to ever be called “The 80’s.” The Molly Ringwalds create an 80’s Experience by honing their abilities to apply make-up and tease their hair while showcasing all the musical genres of the decade. From their days of building a following at a pub located in a large portion of a big city near a small village located south of a place you’ve never heard of, to selling out large venues in the United States, The Molly Ringwalds are an indescribable act.

The Return is known as one of the best Beatles cover bands in the country, striving to maintain the utmost level of authenticity in their show. In fact, they are known for it. They’ve played thousands of shows—theatres, festivals, fairs, casinos, cruise ships, colleges and universities, weddings, birthday parties, bar mitzvahs–as well as countless corporate events for companies like Coca Cola, ABC, Hard Rock Cafe, and Volkswagen International–and the reaction is the same every time. People are amazed at how much the Return sounds and looks just like the Beatles.
