Simply Queen came to rock us in Bay City thanks to the Bay Arts Council.

This live tribute band is recognized as North America's top Queen tribute act. Rick Rock is the Freddie Mercury impersonator, and guarantees a mind-blowing revival of iconic songs made by Queen. Greg Hawco on drums is a successful composer, Mark Yannetta on bass is part of the 'Classic Albums Live' on theatre, and Bob Wegner was hand-picked by Queen's Brian May and Roger Taylor to play guitar for the "We Will Rock You" musical in Toronto.
