Cruise Control to Rock Boardman Marina Park with Free Concert


The classic rock band Cruise Control will perform for Music in the Parks outdoor summer concert series this evening at the Boardman Marina Park at 7 p.m., located off of N. Main Street on Marine Drive.

Cruise Control is a ‘50s, ‘60s, ‘70s and ’80s cover band that plays rock, pop, and country rock music. Together with their unique blend of voices, they play everything from the hard driving rock and roll to the softer melodies that bring back the memories of special occasions and invite the listener to reminisce over experiences that used to be so clear.

Feel free to tap your toe, dance, or just sing along, whichever makes you happy. From time to time the band provides an open mic for people in the audience to display their talents or fulfill their dream of singing with a rock band. The band is very versatile and many times will take requests from the era they cover. So if you have a favorite song you would like to hear, feel free to make your request and they will do their best to make it happen.
