Free Moss Center concert featuring Pablo Cruise and the Pure Prairie League

It’s almost time for The Moss Center’s (formerly the South Miami-Dade Cultural Arts Center) annual Backyard Bash!

The free annual celebration, which kicks off the center’s season, this year will feature a live performance by Pablo Cruise and the Pure Prairie League. The concert is set for 7 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 22, 2022 at the center’s Back Yard Concert Lawn and Plaza, at 10950 SW 211th St., Cutler Bay, FL.

While admission is free, a ticket is required for all ages. Tickets will be available through the Moss Center Box Office on Tuesday, Oct. 4, 2022. Box Office number is (786) 573-5300.

Backyard Bash features two stellar “soft rock” groups, one of the most commercially successful genres from the mid-1970s to the mid-1980s. Don’t miss the Pablo Cruise Band, playing hits such as “Love Will Find A Way,” and “Whatcha Gonna Do,” as well as other numbers that rocked the Billboard top 100 charts. 

Also performing will be country rock sensation, Pure Prairie League, whose hit, “Amie” became a Billboard top 40 hit, and whose music helped pave the way for country rockers like Keith Urban, Nickel Creek and more.

Enjoy the revolutionary style of music that’s fun for the whole family. So bring your lawn chairs and blankets – but leave the coolers at home – and get ready for some tunes!
