The 46th anniversary of Woodstock is coming up in August and Hard Rock Cafe Tampa is going to celebrate the occasion with a funkadelic event – Peace of Woodstock – Friday, August 14.
The Hard Rock Cafe will offer a special Woodstock-themed food and beverages throughout the day and there will be specials on signature Woodstock Wine.
This show will take you on a far out journey from the acoustic opening act of the Woodstock experience, Richie Havens through the closing moments of the festival with the explosive, electric
sounds of Jimi Hendrix.
Also featured are songs from Crosby, Stills, and Nash, The Who, Janis Joplin, Sly and the Family Stone, Joe Cocker, Arlo Guthrie, Country Joe McDonald, Santana, the Jefferson Airplane, and more!
Most of the members of Peace of Woodstock grew up playing together in various bands around the Tampa bay Area, followed by many years extensively touring most of the 50 states and parts of Europe with many top groups and recognizable names in the rock world.
Fun and fashionable clothing will be incorporated into the groovy celebration as Hard Rock Cafe team members will be wearing clothes from that era. Anyone who attends is encouraged to dress in their favorite Woodstock themed attire!
We’ll catch you on the flip side.
Woodstock was a music festival which took place from August 15-18 in 1969. Billed as “An Aquarian Exposition: 3 Days of Peace & Music,” it was held at Max Yasgur’s 600-acre dairy farm in the town of Bethel, N.Y., 43 miles southwest of the town of Woodstock, N.Y.
More than 30 acts performed outdoors during the four-day festival before a crowd of 400,000. It is widely regarded as a pivotal moment in popular music history. Rolling Stone listed it as one of the “50 Moments That Changed the History of Rock & Roll.”
