Dance through the decades at Dearborn Homecoming Aug. 3-5

DEARBORN – High-energy performers will take to the Main Stage at the city’s 39th annual Homecoming festival, and regional favorites will light up the Food Court Stage throughout the weekend.

The lineups include rock, acoustic, folk and pop alongside the Saturday night headliners, “The Austailian Bee Gees Show – A Tribute to The Bee Gees.” Thirty of the best Bee Gees songs, dynamic visuals and audience participation will keep the fever alive for the 90-minute family friendly concert.

Classics include “How Deep is Your Love,” “Jive Talkin’,” “How Can You Mend a Broken Heart,” “Night Fever,” “You Should Be Dancing,” “Too Much Heaven,” “I Started a Joke,” “I’ve Gotta Get a Message To You,” and “Stayin’ Alive.”

“The Australian Bee Gees Show – A Tribute to The Bee Gees” will begin at 8:30 p.m. Aug. 4, following the classic rock, funk, soul and feel good music of The Together Band at 6 p.m.

High-energy dance and variety band Holly and the Johnnies! kick off the festival’s main stage entertainment from 6 to 7:30 p.m. on Aug. 3. They are followed by Atomic Radio, known for their covers of today’s and yesterday’s pop, rock and hip-hop hits.

The festival concludes on Aug. 5 with a night of throwbacks featuring Main Stage performances by Class of ’98, a ’90s cover band; and Mega 80’s, Detroit’s premier ’80s retro multimedia experience.

Plenty of music, and a little magic, is at the Food Court Stage as well during Homecoming:
• Aug. 3: Howlin’ Mercy, a Detroit style blues and classic rock band.

• Aug. 4: A2 Magic, country rock band Corndaddy and acoustic music duo Oh!CD.
• Aug. 5: The Amazing Clark: Master Magician; Wide Angle; and The Phoenix Theory, a dance, pop and rock group that’s a Dearborn favorite.

All of the concerts are free, as is admission to Homecoming. Fireworks displays will follow Aug. 4 and 5 performances at 10 p.m.

The festival runs Aug. 3 to 5 at Ford Field Park, 22051 Cherry Hill Road. For a complete schedule, go to www.cityofdearborn/homecoming
