Ides of March Christmas Show starring Jim Peterik
To forge a sound that is timeless and unforgettable. This isn’t a sedate “oldies” act-much the opposite actually. In concert, the IDES OF MARCH remain a vital, powerhouse rock and roll band whose typical 90-minute concert usually lasts two hours, and the encores are always the strongest songs of the night. The secret of the band’s longevity might rest in the fact that they all have remained best friends throughout the years, with not a hint of ego-trip to be found. This is especially unique because singer Jim Peterik rose to the top of the heap with his band Survivor (“Eye Of The Tiger”) during the 1980’s. Jim also co-wrote the multi-platinum hits for Southern favorites .38 Special (“Hold On Loosely”, et.al.). When Survivor ran its course, Jim returned “home” to the IDES, and the band never looked back. While many “vintage” groups supplement their sets playing “cover versions” of the hits of others, the IDES celebrate Jim’s “extracurricular” hits like they were “homegrown”, which they, in some respects, are.
