Classic cars and classic rock will fill Glendale’s Brand Boulevard this weekend when the 24th annual Glendale Cruise Night takes place on Saturday night.
Nearly 400 pre-1980 cars will be proudly displayed by their owners, backed by musical acts paying tribute to Jimmy Buffett, Creedence Clearwater Revival and Rod Stewart before an expected audience of 40,000 attendees.
The free event will kick off at 5:30 p.m. with a set by The Coral Paradise Band, which plays the hits of Buffett including “Margaritaville,” “Come Monday” and “Cheeseburger in Paradise.” Led by former Coral Reefer member Chris Farmer, the band also plays top Caribbean-influenced hits by other acts, including Bob Marley classics “I Shot the Sheriff” and “One Love.”
Creedence Relived will follow from 7 to 8:30 p.m., serving up 90 minutes of hits including “Fortunate Son,” “Proud Mary,” “Born on the Bayou” and “Bad Moon Rising.” The band is distinguished by the fact that leader Tomes Brolotnikov is the only “John Fogerty” tribute artist in the country who both sings and plays the lead guitar riffs.
Following the 8:30 p.m. awards ceremony for the best cars at the event, Gregory Wolfe as Rod Stewart will headline the evening from 9 to 10:30 p.m. playing a full array of Stewart’s most rocking hits including “Hot Legs” and “Maggie May.”
The electrifying evening will close with a fireworks display at 10:30 p.m. at the main stage, located at Wilson Avenue and Brand Boulevard.
