Tonight we have a chance to make history in Cedar Rapids, and I would love for you to be part of it!

It's the second-to-last Uptown Friday Night of the season at McGrath Amphitheater tonight.

Next Friday August 12, the riverside concert park will host the Beach Boys and Temptations concert.

And with a spectacular weather forecast, the time is NOW to help us break the attendance record that was set on opening night this season. That would make this season the most successful on record, but it can only happen with your help.

The Cedar Rapids Jaycees have been hosting this event for over 25 years, and it has only grown larger and larger ever since is moved to McGrath Amphitheater a few years ago.

And with good reason! It's outdoors in the summer time.There are a lot of cool people to meet. And its not a bar "patio" on the street, with noisy traffic rushing by throwing exhaust into your face. It's cooler by the river in more ways than one.

Plus tonight I have a fistful of concert tickets to Beach Boys, Weird Al and other shows, along with tickets to the John Deere Golf Classic next week!

I'll see you there!
