For three decades, the Commodores have remained a force in the music industry – “The Legends of Motown,” “Hit, After Hit, After Hit,” “Grammy Award Winners,” “All The Emotion, All the Excitement,” “If You Haven’t Seen Them Live, You Haven’t Heard The Commodores.”
This event is the result of a Community Partnership between Five Rivers MetroParks, SOCHE (Southwestern Ohio Council for Higher Education), The Dayton Foundation and many caring community partners who want to recognize and honor those in the Miami Valley who were impacted by the tornadoes on May 27th. All proceeds go towards The Greater Dayton Disaster Relief Fund, established by The Dayton Foundation, to help rebuild the community.
This event is free but The Greater Dayton Disaster Relief Fund donations are welcome. Join us for a night of music, food and fun! More details coming soon!
RTA will be offering free rides to and from the event throughout their system!

The Strings Attached Tour
with The Dayton Philharmonic Orchestra
“Weird Al” Yankovic is the biggest-selling comedy recording artist in history, earning four Grammys and fifteen career nominations. The legendary musical satirist follows his sold-out 2018 tour of intimate venues – where he played deep cuts for his hardcore fans – with his biggest show ever. Weird Al is back to playing the hits and classics with his Strings Attached tour, a high-energy rock and comedy production featuring his original band, costumes, props, a video wall and – for the first time – background singers and a full symphony orchestra.
Warped Wing Brewing Co. has hired Erin O’Neill to design and run the culinary program at Warped Wing. The culinary program will be reflected at both the downtown Dayton location as well as a new location, “Warped Wing Barrel Room & Smokery”, a unique barrel- aging facility, Taproom, eatery and test pilot brewery – scheduled to open in the summer of 2020 in Springboro, OH.
Warped Wing helped pioneer the craft beer experience in Dayton over 5 years ago and is the #1 selling craft beer brand in the area. Warped Wing has won accolades for a series of their beer brands within their traditional beer and barrel-aged product portfolio.
“Our drive for making great craft beer has now evolved into a complete customer beverage and food program”, said John Haggerty, co-founder and Brewmaster. “Bringing on Culinary Director Erin O’Neill takes us to another level to the benefit of our customers,” said Haggerty. “Erin’s love for creating an amazing food experience is exciting. And seeing how he executes his skills while building menus designed around our beers is even more impressive. It’s a total flavor experience”, Haggerty added.
“My passion for food and beer comes to fruition through the eyes of our customers”, said O’Neill. “Seeing the expression of joy on a customers face is what keeps me excited about this business. Partnering with our brewers to create one-of-a-kind food and beverage selections that compliment one another is what we are all about. Beer has always been about sharing. Now our food program lives up to that same expectation”, said O’Neill.
Warped Wing’a new menu for the downtown Dayton location debuts Thursday, June 27th, right before the 4th of July holiday.
The restaurant at both locations will bring innovative, sharable, eclectic menus to complement the robust beer selection. The new Springboro location will have a major focus on smoked meat/food.
