Published October 19, 2006
The rock 'n' rollers from Flash Cadillac hit the big time as the prom band in American Graffiti. They played all the '70s staples from American Bandstand to Midnight Special and appeared in Apocalypse Now. Today the group does symphonic pops programs, such as this week's concerts with the Florida Orchestra.
Associate conductor Susan Haig will be on the podium for Splish Splash, Jailhouse Rock, A Whiter Shade of Pale and more classic rock today at Ruth Eckerd Hall, Clearwater; Friday at Tampa Bay Performing Arts Center, Tampa; and Saturday at Mahaffey Theater, St. Petersburg, all at 8 p.m. $17-$52. (813) 286-2403 or toll-free 1-800-662-7286.
Before Saturday's concert, the newly formed Junior Guild for students and young adults will have its first meeting, with munchies, a drawing for free tickets and a visit from Haig, at 6 p.m. at Mahaffey. For information, contact Gigi Stengard at (727) 347-4748.
