Aurora Swing Nights Presents Rock the Depot Concert, June 18
Season Finale at 550 Trackside with special guest vocalists Eric Moore and Megan McFarland

Lawrenceville, Ga. – Thrill to the music of the Big Band Era all the way to funk and rock classics of the 70s and 80s at Aurora Swing Nights: Rock the Depot concert on Thursday, June 18 at 8 p.m.

A summertime tradition, this upbeat edition of the popular Swing Night concert series will feature a memorable array of rock ’n’ roll songs that will allow every guest to groove to the beats of the past.

Aurora Swing Nights features the Metro Jazz Club, a smokin’-hot 17 piece band dedicated to the preservation of some of the best music ever composed. Led by jazz sax man Gary Dalton, Metro Jazz Club has two amazing vocalists, velvety crooner Jason Joines and zesty diva Amanda Richards. The concert event will also feature the remarkable Megan McFarland. Star of stage and screen, this Atlanta mainstay originated the role of Della in Della’s Diner in 1978 at Atlanta’s Showcase Cabaret. Also joining the band will be recording artist Eric Moore (Hands on a Hardbody), a soulful tenor whose voice will lift your spirit and take you back to the 70s in style. Both of these gifted vocalists will appear onstage in Aurora’s 20th anniversary season debut Memphis, playing July 23- August 30.
