“Let’s go” to the Athens Theatre on Saturday, March 27, and “Let the good times roll,” as Touch & Go brings to DeLand their “Magic” tribute to The Cars.
2018 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees, The Cars were a guitar- and synthesizer-heavy American rock band that formed from the new wave scene in the late 1970s. Their music has inspired countless musicians — among them, Touch & Go.
Featuring five top-notch musicians who have been performing to sellout crowds for decades, Touch & Go has earned a reputation as a talented and unique tribute. The look, sound and feel of the iconic band The Cars lives on in Touch and Go’s precise replication of their much-loved hits.
Packing a full two-hour set of music spanning the entire Cars catalog, you will be transported back to the late ’70s and ’80s. With the memorable guitar hooks, the synthesizer-laden music, and Touch & Go’s lead vocalist Gene Minix’s perfect voice match for The Cars’ Ric Ocasek, you will have a concert experience that you won’t soon forget!
