The renowned Jimmy Buffett tribute band, A1A, is the featured entertainment in Johns Creek's Summer Concert Series at Newtown Park Amphitheater, July 18.
A1A, billed as the official and original Jimmy Buffett tribute show, has been playing hits by the Florida troubadour for 22 years. Named for the highway that starts in the Florida Keys and runs along the Atlantic Coast of Florida, A1A performed in the Lionsgate feature film, "What to Expect When You're Expecting."
The amphitheater opens at 6 p.m. and the show starts at 7:30 p.m. with the Rhythm Jets featuring Vance Kelly as the opening act. There is no reserved seating, and tickets are not required for the 2014 summer music series. Coolers of food and drinks are allowed, but no alcohol, please. However, food truck vendors selling food and drinks, including beer and wine, will be present.
The new open-air, pine and stacked-stone opened last month with a performance by the Johns Creek Symphony Orchestra. Country Music star Shane O'Dazier is featured for the 3rd concert in the series, August 23.
The Amphitheater seats about 400 people under cover and an estimated 1,000 on its terraced lawn.
