Rick Tisch aka Shorty Long

Shorty Long will take the stage at Kennedy Plaza on Friday.

This weekend folks in Atlantic City will have two opportunities to rock out with some of the top cover bands in the area.

Beginning at 7 p.m. Friday, July 19, Shorty Long and the Jersey Horns will take the stage at Kennedy Plaza, offering up their signature pint-sized, power-wheeled blend of classic and modern rock.

Then at 7 p.m. Sunday, July 21, Screaming Broccoli will seize the opportunity to turn up the volume on the boards as they bring forth their four-piece rock attack to the stage at Kennedy Plaza.

Both shows are free of charge. Seating is first come, first serve. Shows will end at 10 p.m.

Kennedy Plaza is located on the Boardwalk in front of Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City. For more info go to ACBoardwalkConcerts.com.
