THE CROWN JEWELS – A TRIBUTE TO QUEEN
July 21, 8pm
All ages welcome. Free admission.
Hailing from Minneapolis, the band is made up of the area’s finest musicians who share one thing in common: a special place in their hearts for the band Queen.
“We put this band together because over the years we all have at some point in our musical careers been influenced by Queen, and we wanted to share our love of this music with the public. While this music is technically very demanding, and takes a lot of extra effort to get right, there is a certain joy that comes from playing it well and doing the music justice. We have worked hard to create a show that even Queen would be proud of.”
From start to finish, the show is incredible with something for everyone, from the hardcore Queen fan to the casual listener. The showmanship on stage is reflected by the resumes of the band members, all of whom are veterans of the music business and who have toured both nationally and internationally with other projects. The Crown Jewels – A Tribute to Queen’s members, Alex Parsons (Lead Vocals), Steve Pritchard (Guitar/Vocals), Paul Cherba (Bass/Vocals), Chris Dale (Drums/Vocals), Michelle Pritchard (Backing vocals), Erica Hanson ( Backing vocals), and Polo Zetina (Keyboards/Vocals) are proud to present to you the ultimate live Queen concert!
A HARD DAY’S NIGHT – A TRIBUTE TO THE BEATLES
