This Saturday, April 10th, The 74th Street Band will perform their 100th show at the World Famous Billet Bar in Old Town Scottsdale, AZ. In addition to this milestone, this will be one of the biggest AZ Bike Week kickoff parties in town! The event is scheduled to begin at 9:00pm and is free for all who attend.
74th Street began as a group of friends who've been performing together on and off since childhood and ultimately grew into one of the state's premier cover bands. With a set list heavy on southern rock and full of classic rock favorites, they quickly rose to be one of the most sought after bands by popular valley venues as well as a favorite among festival and large event organizers. they are as comfortable playing large stages to audiences of thousands as they are on smaller stages to an intimate group. They're performances are always energetic and fun as they continue to expand their repetoire with the music people want to hear as well as mixing in a few popular original songs. Even after this weekend's celebratory event, they have a dozen more shows scheduled and they show no signs of slowing down anytime soon.
The Billet Bar is a staple in Phoenix as THE place for riders and non-riders alike to enjoy good friends, good food and great music! It's also a premier stop for well known musicians and entertainers who are visiting the valley.
“Miles & Music for Kids,” Dierks Bentley's charity motorcycle ride and concert series made a stop in Phoenix on Nov. 21 and raised $200,000 for Phoenix Childrens Hospital over the course of the weekend, bringing the 2009 total for both the Nashville and Phoenix events to over $400,000. Bentley was joined by Jessi Colter, Jimmy Wayne, Roger Clyne and the Peacemakers and a sold-out crowd of over 3,400 bikers and fans. 74th Street performed at the pre-ride Kickoff Concert at Buddy Stubbs Harley-Davidson where Dierks joined them on stage to promote the evening events.
