The Summer of Love Concert has sold out the Count Basie Theatre for 7 years straight. Glen Burtnik and his cast of 14+ singers, rhythm section, horns and strings are masters of interpretation, paying these iconic songs their due respect while bringing to the audience an energy and passion that the original performers would surely be proud of. The band comes ready to work, they hit the gas for 2+ hours of rock ‘n roll and leave nothing in the tank. We look forward to continuing this ride with the Summer of Love Concert for many years to come.

The Summer of Love Concert Experience was nothing short of amazing. The joy from the stage was infectious. In all my years of booking concerts, none has caused a more emphatically enthusiastic response. It was off the charts!

Glen Burtnik and friends kicked off this groovy "love fest" with over two solid hours of hits from the Woodstock era of rock...truth be told, everyone should be applauded for their stellar contributions.

The Summer of Love Concert, led by Glen Burtnik along with his incredible Summer of Love Experience, was, for me, one of the highlights of this year’s concert going experience…..and........I go to a LOT of shows.

Glen Burtnik’s Summer of Love Concert, a tribute to the music of the Woodstock Generation packed more astounding talent onto my stage than any other single performance during the entire 2012/2013 season.  The dead-on recreations of so many great artists –Crosby Stills and Nash, Grace Slick, Janis Joplin, Otis Redding, and Richie Havens, among others, brought so many requests from patrons to bring it back to the Shea Center, I was prompted to book Summer of Love again for next year.  The feedback was tremendous and unanimous.  The show is a winner!

Wow!  What a show Glen and friends put on last night! My sister and I had so much fun at last year's concert, I returned this year with four more people, all of whom were just as blown away by the show.  Next year, I'll be be back with a much larger crowd. The Summer of Love Concert is, hands down, the best concert experience I've ever had.  The joy the performers experience on stage is a high for the audience.  Each vocalist just blew me away…I loved their performances and how they drew the audience in to be in the moment with them.  Joey is incredible on the drums!  Everyone was amazing and spending the evening singing along with all the fabulous songs from my youth was a blast.  You all deserved every standing “O” (13 to be exact) you received. Thanks so much for putting on such a fun and fabulous show that created an unforgettable memory for me, my sisters and friends.  We all can't wait to experience The Summer of Love Concert again!

A very appreciative fan,

Our audience raved about the concert during the show, walking out of the theatre and even phone calls on our voice mail this weekend! What a treat they received Saturday night. This group is not only talented but they put soul into each piece they performed. Every aspect of the concert was amazing from the energetic soloists, the musicians, what talent, the backup singers, strong and beautiful and the incredible video and lighting just pushed the concert over the top. The guys playing the horns looked like they were having so much fun dancing together you couldn’t help yourself but smile when they played. This concert is definitely a do again!

The energy with each performer actually had a texture!! You could feel it!! It was a joy to watch each one have fun!! It allowed the audience to step out of the worries of life and be transported to a place of fun, joy and good times for 3 hours. Just great!! Already plans to return as well!! Many people were saying the same thing as they walked to the parking lot. Fabulous show!!! Just Fabulous!!

Everyone loved the event! The music was just amazing, the singers were fantastic, the variety was perfect and the dance floor was packed! Dean (Gladden), our Managing Director, had a great evening and was beaming with pride because he found The Summer of Love Concert.
