Concert in the Park: Hit Machine

Wednesday, August 15 | Cook Park
Free | Music begins at 6:30 p.m.

Join Tigard Parks & Rec and Hit Machine for an evening of fun, music and dancing. The energy projected from this 5 piece band is highly contagious, to say the least! The band plays hits from all eras and it’s not uncommon to hear Stayin’ Alive (Bee Gees), Kiss (Prince), Dynamite (Taio Cruz) and You Shook Me All Night Long (AC/DC) all in the same set.
