The festival started this summer and has been extended through mid-December 2021. Here is the lineup of concerts coming this November at the Frontyard Festival.

Air Supply

Did you know Air Supply’s singers, Russell Hitchcock and Graham Russell, bonded over a love for The Beatles and singing, hustled their way into the music industry, and then matched The Beatles with the same amount of consecutive top-five singles?

Tenors Russel and Hitchcock met in 1975 during rehearsals for Jesus Christ Superstar playing in Sydney, Australia. The two hit it off and would play at pizza parlors, coffee bars, and nightclubs with one guitar and two majestic voices after nightly performances on the theater stage. Their great voices and original songs, which Graham wrote, grew their popularity. The two made a two-song demo –  “Love and Other Bruises” and “If You Knew Me.” They took it to every record company they could find.

Everyone turned it down except one, CBS Records.

In the same year, they opened for Rod Stewart in Australia, the U.S., and Canada. They gained new fans, but they still struggled to break the U.S. market. In Australia, the duo’s new record Life Support with “Lost in Love” made it to Top 10 in Australia and made its way to Clive David in New York, a big-time music industry executive of the day. He ended up signing Air Supply to Arista Records in 1980. “Lost in Love” became a fast-selling single around the world and topped all the charts. Their second single “All Out of Love” went up the charts even faster. Over time, Air Supply made seven top-five singles – equaling The Beatles with consecutive top five singles.

Experience the music of Air Supply on Friday, November 12, 2021, at 8 p.m.

Shawn Colvin’s debut album Steady On won her first Grammy award for Best Contemporary Folk Album.

Theme parks definitely highlight any visit to Central Florida. The first time you walk into a theme park, all you probably want to do (and only have time to do) is ride the rides. After you’ve tackled the roller coasters and other thrill rides, is it worth visiting the parks again? Yes it is! Theme parks are usually packed with hidden treasures easily missed during first visits.

If you’re looking for fresh thrills for your second (or third) trip to the parks, here are a couple of ideas for your return visit.

See the shows. This includes stages shows, street shows, and parades. Some theme parks have a nightly fireworks display or sendoff shows that you might have overlooked or missed during the first visit.

Stage ride photos. Rides tend to take photos on big drops. Plan a pose for a hilarious group photo. Search for funny photo ideas online. However, use good judgement and keep it clean. Offensive photos are often not made available for purchase.

Participate in scavenger hunts. Some parks have their own scavenger hunts; some are created by theme park enthusiasts and posted online. Hint: Universal Studios® has a Minions Scavenger Hunt.

Interact with characters. Characters at the parks will usually play along with you. (Just be nice and keep it classy for the children.) Silly poses with superheroes and famous characters make for the most memorable pictures.

Check out the bloggers online who discuss where to find each theme park’s hidden treasures and what other fun activities exist for you to enjoy. We hope this blog helps sparks some ideas and research. Now get out there and make some great memories!
