Best known for their Grammy-nominated Best Hard Rock Performance hit, “Once Bitten, Twice Shy,” the band has sold more than 10 million albums worldwide, has six Top 100 Billboard hits, nine Top 200 Billboard albums, two platinum albums, and clocked the top of MTV video four times. An upcoming DVD release of their documentary and concert footage shot in Las Vegas from Rock Fuel Media will be included in a cable network TV series called “Rock Show.” And, in early 2017, Great White will once again work with producer Michael Wagener, a humble nod to their first self-titled EP and album (EMI, 1984). Wagener reached iconic status after working with such hard rock icons, such as Alice Cooper, Megadeth, Metallica and more.

    Cinderella’s Tom Keifer

    The Hub at Perry Square Country Fair Main Stage (State Street).

    Cinderella’s Tom Keifer, best known as the singer-songwriter/frontman of the Philadelphia-based bluesrock band and who is enjoying continued success from his solo debut, “The Way Life Goes,” will cap this year’s performances at the Rock ‘N’ Roar Concert. Whether delivering heart-wrenching ballads, such as “Don’t Know What You Got ‘til It’s Gone,” channeling the soul of the bluesmen of the past with his slide guitar and lap steel, or blowing sax on rockers like “Shelter Me,” Keifer is one of the most unique singers and accomplished musicians in rock ‘n’ roll. Combine that with his new band, consisting of Paul Taylor (keyboards/vocals), Tony Higbee (guitar/vocals), Billy Mercer (bass/vocals), Paul Simmons (drums/vocals), Savannah Keifer (vocals/percussion) and Kendra Chantelle (vocals/percussion), and Keifer has created a high-energy rock show combining all the classic hits of Cinderella with new favorites from “The Way Life Goes” that leaves fans wanting more.

    All concerts at ROAR 2017 are FREE; however, premium viewing is available in the Rocket 101 Beer Garden for a donation each night.
