StreetFest Music 2015
Check out this year’s exciting music lineup!!!
80s Pop Rock
The name says it all. A cheeky play on words that time shifts an epic, romantic novel/film into the glitz, glitter and over-the-top attitude of the Las Vegas strip. DR. ZHIVEGAS has been a mainstay on the St. Louis music scene since the mid-1990s combining the rock and roll energy of bands like Van Halen with funky dance grooves that seem to automatically propel audiences out onto the dance floor.
Sure, it’s a musical throwback to the ’80s, but it’s also a vibe that’s constantly being tweaked and updated by the band to keep it fresh and contemporary. Don’t miss our exciting headliner at the Ferguson StreetFest this year!
