Featuring Grammy Winning 70s Rock Band America
and Beatles Tribute Band The Fab 5
March 1, 2014 at Mesquite Arena
The Grammy winning 70’s rock band America will headline the Mesquite ISD Education Foundation’s 8th Annual Lone Star Legacy Gala and Concert on March 1, 2014 at Mesquite Arena. America has been led for four decades by Gerry Beckley and Dewey Bunnell, performing over 100 live shows a year, featuring two #1 smash hits A Horse With No Name and Sister Golden Hair along with many other sing along favorites like You Can Do Magic, Ventura Highway, Tin Man, Lonely People and many more. America won the Grammy for Best New Artist in 1972 thanks in large part to the smash hit song A Horse With No Name, from their debut album. The song sold over 1 million copies worldwide and put America on the rock and roll map.
America’s extraordinarily four-decade music legacy of consummately crafted pop/rock songs, trademark lush harmonies and evocative lyrical landscape will never go out of style. The Education Foundation is excited to travel back in time to enjoy America’s dense library of hit, sing along rock songs for people of all ages to enjoy.
The Fab 5
A desire to recreate the spirit & enthusiasm of the British Invasion and America's subsequent retaliation led to the formation of The Fab 5 in 1990. The Fab 5 is a Houston, Texas based Beatles Tribute Band performing the greatest hits of The Beatles, and the pop beat music of The 60's and 70's! The Fab 5 has been a fixture to the Houston Music Scene for over 23 years. Their sincere dedication, professionalism, & attention to detail have become hallmarks of The Fab 5, as evidenced by their impressive client list. Relive the days of “Beatlemania” each time you see The Fab 5. They are not only a Beatles tribute band, but one of the best 60’s tribute bands in the nation. In October 2007, The Fab 5 were also featured in The New Musical Express in England as one of the Top Beatles Tribute Bands in America.
