“Relive the Memories, Share the Spirit and Celebrate the Songs of the Woodstock Generation with Glen Burtnik’s The Summer of Love Concert”

The Summer of Love Concert focuses on iconic rock music from the period of time generally between the 1967 release of The Beatles revolutionary album Sgt Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band and the famous Woodstock Music and Art Festival in 1969 with music from artists like The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, Dylan, Creedence Clearwater Revival, Janis Joplin, Jimi Hendrix, The Doors, Santana, Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young, Jefferson Airplane, The Lemon Pipers, The Turtles, The Beach Boys, Mamas and the Papas, Country Joe, Ravi Shankar, Procol Harum, Joe Cocker,  Melanie, The Spencer Davis Group, Ike & Tina Turner, The Rascals, Chicago, The Zombies, Otis Redding, Sonny and Cher, Sly and The Family Stone and more! The songs run the gamut from the psychedelic songs to rockin' album tracks to a sprinkling of now hip Top 40 pop from that era. Jean Mikle, feature writer for the Asbury Park Press and Pulitzer Prize finalist writes "The Summer of Love Concert...was, for me, one of the highlights of this year’s concert going experience…..and........I go to a LOT of shows.” 

The Summer of Love Concert was created by Glen Burtnik, alumnus of Styx, the original Beatlemania on Broadway (he played Paul), touring bassist/vocalist with a current version of ELO, The Orchestra, member of The Weeklings, major label recording artist and hit songwriter ("Sometimes Love Just Ain't Enough" - Don Henley/Patty Smyth, "Spirit of a Boy, Wisdom of a Man" - Randy Travis, and others).

The 14+ member Summer of Love Concert includes a horn section, strings, keyboards, featured and background vocalists and a powerful rock rhythm section, celebrating “note for note and absolutely live” the songs, the memories and the spirit of the Woodstock Generation. "I've always had a playlist on my IPod named The Summer of Love. I'm actually a hippie at heart. The music of that era is probably what moves me the most," said Burtnik in a recent interview.

To further enhance that experience, The Summer of Love Concert features Marc Rubinstein’s Pig Light Show which is recognized as one of the most famous psychedelic light shows in rock history and is well known for its use in the late 1960’s as the house light show at Bill Graham’s legendary New York City concert hall, the Fillmore East
