Main Street McMinnville has announced its lineup for the 2015 Main Street Live summer concert series. The season begins June 12 with a band that will take listeners back to the 1980s.
“Bueller was a big hit last year,” said Main Street McMinnville co-director Brook Holmes. “We wanted to kick off this year’s lineup with them.”
Named after the movie “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off” released in 1986, the five-member band consists of Dave Tough, Jack Taylor, Jon Lechner, Dan Eidem, and Amy Walsh. The group plays songs from Flock of Seagulls, Van Halen, Poison and Def Leppard, to name a few of the bands it covers.
Concert organizers encourage local residents to be in attendance for the band that took its name from the scene where the teacher is taking roll and says, “Bueller …, Bueller …, Anyone?”
