Club Congress celebrates it’s 25th anniversary with a Tucson Music Reunion
KXCI Presents! a Tucson Music Reunion! The longest-running night club on this side of the Mississippi is celebrating their 25th anniversary! But this year, it’s not about us! It’s about you… how you and your friends used to hole up in Nino’s watching River Roses rockin’ out til dawn. How you found your husband at the Casino Ballroom and got pregnant after watching Love LTD. It’s about the Tucson you knew back in the day. And it’s all here.. the bands, the photos, the memories (yep, even those you tried to forget!) Highlights include KXCI's own Petey Mesquitey in a reunion with The Dusty Chaps Saturday; Phantom Limbs, River Roses and Naked Prey reunions Friday; and the Rainer Tribute and BBQ Sunday. Tune in for a Studio 2A reunion performance re-broadcast with the River Roses Friday at 3:30pm on The Home Stretch.
The 2010 Club Congress Anniversary Party will be host to 3-days worth of music and good-ole fashion Tucson nostalgia this Friday Saturday and Sunday. To help celebrate and bring back the best of memories, we have an amazing line-up.
