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

One of the best concerts in a long long time. Daniel Hope is an amazing violinist and the caliber of all the faculty and student musicians was the highest. The pre-talk was very informative and the program was compelling. A great experience in every way. Many many thanks to the excellent musicians.
