U2 tribute band at Opera House
JTAMS Productions Presents the U2 Tribute band, "Unforgettable Fire," at The Mauch Chunk Opera House, 14 W. Broadway, Jim Thorpe, on Saturday, May 1, at 8:30 p.m.
New York City based, Unforgettable Fire or "UF", was born on New Years Day in 1995 as one of the very first U2 tribute bands to ever perform in America.
After over 13 years of playing in some of the most prestigious venues on the East Coast, UF has formed a reputation among many to be one of the closest experiences to being at an actual live U2 show.
One of UF's last founding members from 1995, drummer George (Larry) Levesanos, still performs with the band.
Also featured with this concert will be Groovin' Lumens laser and light show from Rochester NY. The light show will be a combination of projected ambient video along with special effects lighting making this show a truly "Unforgettable Fire" Concert.
Doors open at 7:30 p.m. and the concert begins at 8:30 p.m.
