And so our Story Begins.....On a frigid New Years Eve show in 1976 when two local Cincinnati bands where scheduled to perform together. All seemed like just another Happy New Year's show with the slight exception that only ONE member from each band had showed up! So just who where these two prompt and punctual professionals you ask ? Well non other than founding members Gregg St.Charles and Joey Von Richter who then scrambled to collect enough pocket change to make a few calls to find some other musicians to help cover the night. Well, what went down on that special night was nothing short of a belated Christmas Miracle, for on that magical night was forged the beginning of a band that would come and go for the next 33 years........Midnight Special then went on to tour nationally becoming one of America's Premier Rock N Roll shows, opening for countless National headliners, Fairs, Theaters, Festivals and Theme Parks.
Midnight Special also enjoyed regional success on Polygraph Records with the release of "Eye to Eye" and "Dixie Normous" (a Southern Rock Anthem ironically banned in the south ??). Speaking of Southern Rock..... Midnight Special was also the 1st. band in documented history to have "FREEBIRD" screamed out at a concert event.......this live music ritual has since continued on through the last four decades and continues to be practiced today at any given concert event no matter how unlikely it is that it will be played.......but remember "We" heard it first!
Now marks the 36 year Anniversary of one of America's All Time Great Rock N Roll shows performing a Collection of Epic Legendary Classic 70s Rock Anthems from the list of Greatest Songs of All Time in true 70s Arena Rock Concert Style! Midnight Special still has ALL of there original Vintage instruments and stage equipment from there last national tour "Endowed & Proud! 82" making this a very authentic trip back to the 70s with The Classic Rock Experience Midnight Special! That's Our Story and We're Sticking to it!
A limited number of chairs will be placed across the dance floor for this event. First come first serve to resort card holders or hotel guests.
