In conjunction with the Naperville Heritage Society’s 50th Anniversary, Naper Nights sets the stage for three summer weekends in June, July, and August of nonstop music and celebration. Visitors are invited to experience six nights of rock while enjoying cold craft brews and wine, delicious food, and music for the generations. Tribute bands from across the country showcase the history of rock, playing classics from the 60s to today over the summer.
June 14’s line-up celebrates the 50th Anniversary of The Weed Ladies of the Naperville Heritage Society, a longstanding volunteer group on the museum’s campus. To kick-off the series, Naper Nights honors these women with a night of powerful female music. Landslide, a Fleetwood Mac tribute, will return to the Naper Nights stage to open for the Goddesses of Rock. This female powerhouse cover band features the musical stylings of Janis Joplin, Tina Turner, Madonna, Gwen Stefani, Heart, Lady Gaga, and more. June 15 ends opening weekend with a night of classic rock. The Doors of Chicago, a The Doors tribute, will open for Rocks Off, a 9-piece The Rolling Stones tribute with horn section. The concert will open each night with local students from School of Rock playing their favorites on the Naper Nights stage.
There will be a variety of summertime eats, including vegetarian options, offered from local vendors Nandos Peri-Peri Chicken, Angeli’s, Billy Brick’s Wood Fired Pizza, Black Rock, and more. Wine and beer selections will be available from Rodney Strong Vineyards and Bell’s Brewing, with Bell’s newest brew, Official, added to the offerings.
