7/17 – Karma Kings

This experienced four-piece rock/pop cover band - drums, bass, guitar, and vocals, with a bit of percussion and keyboard thrown in for good measure - play some of the great tunes of the past decades through to the popular hits of today. The Karma Kings, who have performed at many of the area’s most popular venues, including Crocker Park, Legacy Village, Cuyahoga County Fair, The Racino, The Rocksino, and others, will delight the crowd when they perform selections from their extensive library, on 7/17. http://www.thekarmakings.com/Karma_Home.php


7/24 – Blu Monsoon


One of the most sought after jazz bands in Northeast Ohio, Blu Monsoon averages over 120 public performances per year at music venues and special events such as The Tri-C and Wooster Jazz Fests. 107.3FM The Wave, commercial broadcast radio, has been playing their music for over a year and their 2018 single , an upbeat version of “Low Tide”, made it to #1. Their contemporary jazz music is created to have broad appeal without being cliché. In addition to original material, they perform unique interpretations of classics such as The Chicken, Autumn Leaves, Chameleon and Fly Me to the Moon. They also play arrangements of pop hits by diverse artists such as Sam Smith, Alicia Keyes, Maroon 5 and Amy Winehouse. We welcome them back to Chesterland on 7/24. https://www.blumonsoon.com/

They are a fun, audience friendly, danceable, blues show band that can also crank out funk, rock and soul. Their sound is Eric Clapton mixed with R&B, very danceable and audience friendly.

8/7 – FM77

Take a trip back in time to the year 1977 as FM77 performs hits you were listening to on your FM dial back then (plus 1978, 1979, and some early 80's because it's great stuff too). Through the combination of meticulous musicianship and modern technology these five musicians reproduce many songs you don’t hear other bands play.  From their Fleetwood Mac tribute blocks to all the great music from disco to rock of that  70's era they bring back memories of those fabulous times. FM77 features four uniquely powerful vocalists enabling them to cover a wide variety of songs. When combined are able to reproduce all those familiar harmonies required in their  unique set list. The band consists of two lead female vocalists, one guitar/lead vocal, bass/lead vocal, and drums. All members of FM77 are seasoned musicians who have been playing in local bands for over 30 years. We welcome FM77 back to Chesterland on 8/7. https://fm77cleveland.com/



8/14 – Amaryllis

We welcome the exciting, up-and-coming four-piece rock band Amaryllis, to close our 36th concert season. The group brings an edge, attitude and sound unlike any of the other bands who’ve performed in the Gazebo. Amaryllis performs familiar 90’s rock, country, hard rock and even original compositions with passion and energy that will have you on your feet enjoying great sounds on a beautiful summer evening. Amaryllis performs on 8/14. https://amaryllisband.com/
