Santana original lead singer, Gregg Rolie, will rock Detroit on the GM Riverfront stage on Friday, Aug. 6 for the continuation of the 2010 Rockin’ on the Riverfront classic rock concert series, sponsored by Andiamo Detroit Riverfront and in partnership with Detroit’s Classic Rock Station 94.7 WCSX-FM.

As Santana and Journey founding member, Rolie has captivated fans with classic Santana hits such as “Black Magic Woman”, “Oye Como Va” and “Evil Ways.” A blend of multiple music genres, Santana created a unique sound all their own. The talented keyboardist/ vocalist/ producer was inducted into the Rock n Roll Hall of Fame in 1998 and continues to spark up the stage with his energy and passion for music.

Salem Witchcraft will open the concert at 8 p.m. and Rolie will play from 9 p.m. to 10:30 p.m.

Detroit natives The Romantics will close out the concert series on Aug. 13.

Admission to the concerts is free and no advance tickets are necessary. Viewing space will be on a first-come, first-served basis and people are encouraged to bring their own lawn chairs and blankets. In addition, boaters on the Detroit River are invited to anchor near the riverfront and enjoy the view of the stage from the water.

Andiamo Detroit Riverfront will provide refreshment and food concessions at several locations on the plaza. Outside food, beverages or coolers will not be permitted. Andiamo Detroit Riverfront will accept dinner reservations before and after the concert and invite guests to take advantage of its outdoor patio overlooking the Detroit River.

Convenient parking is available for $5 per vehicle at the GM surface lot at the intersection of St. Antoine and Atwater, adjacent to the GM Renaissance Center.
