Southern Berkshire County experienced another rainless night this past Tuesday (Aug. 16) which was great news for Sounds of Summer attendees. We had another fun, successful evening at the Great Barrington V.F.W. and this was another case of perfect weather. The weather was so great that a cool breeze came rolling in which made the night even more comfortable, especially for the concert's passionate dancers.

The Music Was Fun and Kept the Audience Rockin', Rollin', and Dancing on the Grounds of the Great Barrington V.F.W.

The latest edition of Sounds of Summer featured the band Generation X Rock (GXR). This band is pure fun as they cover very well-known tunes from the late '70s all the way through the early 2000s. Some of the tunes that GXR cranked out on Tuesday evening included smash hits from the following artists/bands:

  • Cheap Trick
  • Alanis Morissette
  • Blondie
  • Heart
  • Journey
  • Queen
  • Pink
  • AC/DC
  • Billy Squier
  • Beastie Boys
  • Robert Plamer
  • No Doubt
  • Fleetwood Mac
  • Ozzy Osbourne
  • 4 Non Blondes

...and many many more.

At one point during the show, there was so much energy on stage that guitar player, Matthew Alibozek fell to the ground and continued to carry on playing during the song "Bring Me to Life" by Evanescense. It was quite the site. Stay up to date and check out GXR's performance schedule by going here.
