Hardtails Bar & Grill will rock out the summer season with the two concluding shows in their annual slate of tribute bands.

Lovedrive takes the stage on Saturday, August 13, with their tribute to the German hard rock band the Scorpions. Lovedrive was formed in 2012 based out of Southern California and proudly pays tribute to the sound, look, and energy of a live Scorpions concert.

The band performs Scorpions songs of the late 1970s like “In Trance” to “Lovedrive,” all the ’80s hits like “Rock You Like a Hurricane,” “The Zoo,” “Blackout,” “No One Like You,” and “Still Loving You” and ’90s hits like “Wind of Change,” and “Send Me an Angel.” Along with these epic songs, they also include current hits of the 2000s like “Rock and Roll Band” and the latest 2022 release “Rock Believer.”

“They just finished playing at Harefest 10, the mother of all tribute fests,” said Steve Macey, owner of Hardtails. “You have to be a top-notch band to be invited to play there each year.”

The band offers a Pink Floyd tribute rooted in the original vinyl releases of Pink Floyd’s albums. The band notes that 21st century technology has allowed In the Pink to develop a live sound that is very close to those recordings, offering audiences the aural experience they grew up with. Additionally, the band employs lights and video to reference the spectacle of Pink Floyd live.

“In The Pink is actually the most authentic sounding tribute band we have ever had here, and that says a lot,” Macey told The Nugget. “Pink Floyd lovers will be amazed at their sound and ‘tightness.’ This will also be a special, City-permitted three-hour show with their laser light show that keeps time with the music. Quite a sight to behold.”

Both shows start at 8 p.m. Hardtails Bar & Grill is located at 175 N. Larch St. in Sisters.
