The Town of Orange may be small in population, but it gained the reputation for bringing in top flight bands and one of the best fireworks displays in the New Haven County.
For this year’s Independence Day Concert, the Orange Town News, who is once again producing the event, is presenting “Back in Time – A Tribute to Huey Lewis and the News” to perform prior to the town’s Annual Independence Day Fireworks Spectacular.
“BACK IN TIME” is comprised of talented and seasoned musicians from the New York area. “BACK IN TIME” works to recreate the energy, excitement of a Huey Lewis and the News Live Performance. We guarantee you’ll be singing along with every song as we take you on a trip through the 80s.
A top-notch show bringing together all the hits from Huey Lewis & the News and the 80s including: Power of Love, Heart & Soul, I Want a New Drug, Hip to be Square, Heart of Rock & Roll, Do You Believe in Love, If This Is It, Jacob’s Ladder, Stuck on You and much more.
Huey Lewis and The News have carried the banner as the quintessential American rock band, endearing them to millions of fans. During the 1980s and early 1990s they scored a total of 19 top-ten singles across the Billboard Hot 100, Adult Contemporary, and Mainstream Rock charts. You will not be disappointed!!!
