3 Must See Retro Concerts This Summer in Maine
Back In The Day Café fans, there are a few "can’t miss" shows on the way next month!
Every weekday from noon-1pm, we bust out some of the best old school jams on the café, and with live music back in full force, there are a few shows coming to Maine, that should be of interest to 90’s and early 2000's music fans.
Tuesday, August 10th, at 8pm, Blues Traveler will perform at Waterville Opera House, located at 1 Common Street. Tickets range between $53-$63.

Blues Traveler's new album "Traveler's Blues" will be released July 30th. The band's fourth album, "Four", was huge in late 94, and into 95, with the smash singles "Run-Around" and "Hook". "Run-Around" won a Grammy Award and broke a record for most weeks on the chart. Blues Traveler appeared at the infamous Woodstock '94 and played 1995 season premiere of Saturday Night Live.
Thompson's Point is cool riverside venue for summer concerts, located in Portland, and on Tuesday, August 24th, at 7pm. Jason Mraz bring his "Look For The Good Live!" Summer Tour to Maine.
Tickets are $51.50, and are available at https://www.ticketmaster.com/
I have great memories of broadcasting live for a tailgate party at Jason’s Bangor Waterfront show, way back in September of 2010, and I can tell you that he is fun live performer. Jason is perhaps best know for the Top 5 smash "I'm Yours". Mraz has won two Grammy Awards, and nominated for two others.
Thursday, August 26th, at 6pm, 311 brings the "Live From The Ride Tour", to Thompson's Point, in Portland.
Tickets are $49.50, and also be found at https://www.ticketmaster.com/
311 were a huge alternative band that cracked the Top 40 charts with "Down", "All Mixed Up", and "Amber" The band is a mix of rock, reggae, hip hop and funk, and they put on a killer show. They are no stranger to Maine, making several stops here over the years.
Summer won't last forever, so plan a trip to see any of these three great shows next month.
