Rose Festival's NEW RoZone Brings Big Concerts Back to Portland's Waterfront Park

March 31, 2011

CityFair (the Portland Rose Festival's new waterfront entertainment center) is bringing in a brand new concert series in partnership with Alpha Broadcasting, featuring popular new artists, favorite country music performers and a TV star with some musical Leverage in the Portland scene -- all in the NEW RoZone Entertainment Venue.

Headlining performers include:
Fitz & The Tantrums
Founded by lead singer Michael Fitzpatrick, Fitz & The Tantrums are performers of soul music, including the songs "MoneyGrabber" and "Don't Gotta Work It Out."
Justin Moore
The country music singer and songwriter made waves with four 'Top 40' singles on the Hot Country Songs charts, including the songs "Small Town USA" and "Backwoods."
Craig Morgan
A country western star, Morgan began his musical career in 2000 and is known for hit songs that include "That's What I Love About Sunday," "Almost Home," "Redneck Yacht Club," "Little Bit of Life," "International Harvester," "Love Remembers" and "Bonfire."

Opening for Justin Moore is Christian Kane. Lead singer of the country-southern rock band KANE, Christian Kane has gone from Los Angeles actor (best known for his work in the television show Leverage) to Nashville singer/songwriter, collaborating with band partner Steve Carlson.
