Mezza Luna Brings Classic Rock to the Stage

This weekend, the Sports Bar & Grill in Allentown is hosting two popular Lehigh Valley cover bands (for free!).

This weekend, Mezza Luna Sports Bar & Grill brings you two great bands of the Lehigh Valley:  The Aardvarks and The Lou Franco Project. Both bands have been asked to perform regularly at Mezza Luna because they’re both known to keep audiences singing and dancing to a wide variety of loved music.

The Aardvarks originally began in 2002 as a duo (guitarist/vocalist Mike Rauscher and pianist/vocalist Rod Walls) called A Pair of Armadillos. Over time, the two were joined by a bassist, drummer and second guitarist/vocalist. By 2004, the band adopted a different strange “A” animal name and now performs both public and private shows throughout the Lehigh Valley with a library of more than 100 songs (both originals and covers from 1970 on).

You’ll like The Aardvarks if you like:

  • The Doors
  • The Beatles
  • Johnny Cash
  • Paul Simon
  • Pink Floyd

When: Friday, Aug. 26
Tickets: None needed!

The second band, The Lou Franco Project, is a trio of musicians from the Philadelphia and New Jersey areas who have been playing music for over 30 years. Last year, Lou Franco won the Lehigh Valley Music Award for “Best Electrical Guitarist” and drummer Jim Ruffi has performed in Europe with Blue Note vocalist Alan Harris and blues legend Keisa Brown. The band has a vast library as well, playing over 120 classic rock songs.

You’ll like The Lou Franco Project if you like:

  • Led Zeppelin
  • Jimi Hendrix
  • Tom Petty
  • The Rolling Stones
  • The Who

When: Saturday, Aug. 27 
Where: Mezza Luna Sports Bar & Grill, 1201 Airport Road, Allentown, (610) 776-2090
Tickets: None needed!
Parking: Mezza Luna is in a large shopping plaza, so there will be plenty of parking.

P.S. In between sets, radio DJ Rick Michaels from 99.9 The Hawk will be there to keep the oldies going.
