Sample foods from around the region while enjoying the sounds of local and national musical acts. This At The Plaza favorite features a farmers' market, and more than 50 specialty vendors serving up delicious lunch and dinner treats. Chris Busone rocks the stage at 5 p.m., then local power pop band, Ten Year Vamp, blaze into the dinner show with a sound that concert-goers will recognize as Foo Fighters meets Green Day with Gwen Stefani on vocals. The legendary Eddie Money headlines the event with his new single, "One More Soldier Coming Home," a tribute to men and women in uniform who have lost their lives while serving the United States. Other hit songs include "Take Me Home Tonight," "Two Tickets To Paradise," and "Baby Hold On." With more than 28 million records sold, Money's blue-collar brand of Rock-n-Roll has managed to transcend generations and continues to move audiences today. Spend your lunch hour with Slick Fitty and the Chris Dukes Band while soaking up the rays and excellent views at the Empire State Plaza!
