The Baby Boomers Reunion Concert

The Baby Boomer Reunion Concert lights up the Farmington Centene Center stage for the 22nd straight year during its annual time slot of the first full Friday and Saturday in August (which will be on the 2nd & 3rd of this year).

As always, the production features 50 outstanding musicians from all styles and backgrounds who come together for one weekend each year to recreate the greatest popular music ever recorded. This live concert experience ushers back wonderful song remembrances from the 30-year, Baby Boomer era of 1955 (the first year of the pop charts) up through 1984. All performers in the production have local ties to the region, either living here now or having grown up in the surrounding area.

Throughout the concert, the detail to the sound and presentation of the music is given the all-star treatment as the musicians switch in and out in different combinations on each and every song. The theme for this year’s reunion concert is “Family Ties.” Translated, this means that every song performed in the show is not only a Top 40 hit, but the original recording contained performances by at least two siblings, a husband and wife or a parent and child within the group (there are way more than you think!).

One of the attractions that comes with the custom of the Baby Boomer Concert is to incorporate a wide variety of musical styles into the foundation of the show. This year’s line-up is no exception. To demonstrate those extremes in styles, here is a list of a few of the artists whose music will be featured: Lynyrd Skynyrd, Miami Sound Machine, Kinks, Kool and the Gang, Everly Brothers, Carpenters, Creedence Clearwater Revival, McGuire Sisters, Captain and Tenille, Heart, Mamas and the Papas, Partridge Family, Frank and Nancy Sinatra, Paul McCartney and Wings, Johnny Cash and June Carter, Earth Wind & Fire, Osmonds, Styx, Allman Brothers and many more.

One very important note: All songs will be recreated on stage in the same manner that they would have been performed when originally released by each artist and not as cover tunes (this requirement is what sets this show apart from all others, year after year).

The Baby Boomer Reunion Concert came into existence 22 years ago (August 2003) as the inaugural production for the opening of the Farmington Centene Center. This concert was created as a “gift to the community,” and has grown from one show that was 1/3 full to three annual, sold-out performances since that very first day (sold out = 730 seats).

The performances for this year’s show will be held on Friday and Saturday nights (August 2nd & 3rd) beginning at 7:00 pm each evening, and also at 1:00 pm, Saturday afternoon (August 3rd) with the ever-popular, full-show matinee.

Tickets will go on sale for all three shows beginning Monday, July 1st at the Farmington Civic Center. The first 3 hours of that day (8:00 am – 11:00 am) will be devoted only to those who show up to purchase their tickets in person at the Civic Center lobby. Any time after that early morning slot up through the performances; tickets can be acquired at the Civic Center help desk or ordered through the Civic Center phone number (573) 756-0900. All tickets for all shows are reserved and are still held fast at $13.00 each. No other community does anything that is this unique, entertaining and fun. Please, don’t miss it!!!
