Rock out to the music of the '80s and '90s when 93.1 Jack FM brings together a stellar lineup for its annual concert blowout. In addition to the iconic Joan Jett & the Blackhearts, you'll also see Collective Soul, Billy Squier, Violent Femmes, Bow Wow Wow and Naked Eyes. Joan Jett has eight platinum and gold albums and nine Top 40 singles, including the classics "Bad Reputation," "I Love Rock 'N' Roll," "I Hate Myself For Loving You" and "Crimson and Clover." Collective Soul is defined by their catchy melodies and guitar-driven songs that dominated the Billboard charts throughout the '90s. Billy Squier became one of the first faces of MTV in the early '80s, starting with his video for "The Stroke." The party anthem rocketed to No. 3 on Billboard's Mainstream Rock chart, launching Squier's career into the stratosphere. The Violent Femmes got their big break when Chrissie Hynde asked them to open for a Pretenders show at the last minute. Their raw sound and honest lyrical perspective has since influenced such artists as Pink, Keith Urban, The Smiths, Nirvana, Lou Reed and John Cusack. Bow Wow Wow's smash track "I Want Candy" defined the early '80s, and the group appealed to pop and New Wave fans alike. British New Wave band Naked Eyes exploded into the Top 10 with their cover of the Burt Bacharach/Hal David tune "Always Something There to Remind Me" and have never stopped since. Learn More
The Grove is a challenging space to play in, and seating is uncomfortable since dinner tables are set up so that you end up sitting perpendicular to the stage. Certainly you can move your chair, but if it's a full house, it is hard to maneuver so that you are not blocking people.Shawn Colvin & Steve Earle: Songs & Stories, Together On Stage info • Jul 14 2014 star this tip starred

Legendary Rock ‘n’ Roll Hall of Famer Gregg Allman will perform at the Grove of Anaheim. Allman is both a founding member of one of the biggest and most important American bands of all time, the still-active and thriving The Allman Brothers Band. He is a critically acclaimed solo talent with a beautifully soulful and distinctive voice as well as brilliant keyboard and guitar expertise.
Gregg Allman’s debut album Laid Back was released in 1973, the same year that The Allman Brothers’ monstrously successful Brothers & Sisters topped the album charts. Laid Back‘s subtly textured, eclectic mix of rock, folk, R & B and gospel inflections drew rave reviews. Subsequent releases included the live Gregg Allman Tour ’74, _Playin’ Up A Storm_ (1977), and I’m No Angel (1987) which generated a #1 Album Radio hit with the unforgettable title track, a self-meditation on Allman’s often bad-boy ways. In 1988 Allman released After the Bullets Fly and in 1997 Gregg released Searching for Simplicity, the album he feels represents some of his very best work.
Though familiar faces surround his solo endeavors there is a major difference between Gregg Allmansolo and The Allman Brothers Band. “There’s only one cook in the kitchen,” he says, “only one chef. I let the soloists do their thing – you’ve gotta let a man do a solo the way he wants – but as far as picking the tunes and working on the arrangements, I take full responsibility for it.” Don’t miss the chance to see the incredible Gregg Allman at the Grove!
