Quite simply, Expo ’76 is unforgettable! Assembled from the eclectic ranks of Poi Dog Pondering, Tomorrow The Moon, The New Duncan Imperials, Mucca Pazza, and The Renaldo Domino Experience, this cast of characters covers tunes in name and style like no other. Plan on spending the night excitedly wondering, “What could possible happen next?!?” 
Their ever-expanding set list careens wildly through decades and genres as the band follows its own muse. Whether they're storming through a rockabilly chestnut, a show tune, a top 40 hit from their (or your) childhood, brassy, jazzy hits and more, you'll feel the unbridled joy of some of Chicago's busiest and most respected musicians doing what they were born to do. Indeed...Quite simply, they're unforgettable.

Acorn Theater, 107 Generations Dr. , Three Oaks, MI 49128

Our favorite Michigan Venue. Only a short drive from Chicago! Expo'76 brings their unique musical experience back to the Acorn, and you're in for a sweaty, joyous evening of entertainment. Fronted by Poi Dog Pondering's Dag Juhlin, Expo'76 is unlike any cover band you've ever seen or danced to before. They'll play songs you haven't heard in years, turn you on to songs you've never heard before, play some AM radio hits (and near hits) from your youth, and surprise you at every turn. They're a collective of world class musicians reminding themselves and their audiences of the sheer unbridled power and joy of live music. They're bringing along the incredible Total Pro Horns and guest vocalist Robert Cornelius. Do NOT miss this fantastic night of music -dancing shoes highly recommended.
