Rock ‘n’ roll and country soul; that’s what Dennis Quaid and his band, The Sharks, promise Coach House concertgoers at their December 8 performance.

The actor known for roles in films such as The Big Easy, Great Balls of Fire!, The Rookie, The Day After Tomorrow, Wyatt Earp and Soul Surfer,  is not only a movie star but a rock star as well.

Quaid sings lead vocals and plays rhythm guitar for his longtime rock band.

A Dennis Quaid and the Sharks performance promises fans a high-energy, party-worthy mix of original music as well as classics including “Spill the Wine,” “Great Balls of Fire,” “LA Woman,” “Louie Louie,” “Gloria” and more.

Why not make a night of it and enjoy dinner at the Coach House before the show?  Dinner reservations give patrons priority seating that is closer and more central to the stage.
