Green Dayton will cover a vast back catalog of Green Day songs, including both singles and deep cuts. Green Dayton consists of Justin Roseberry on guitar and vocals, Bruce Hull on bass and vocals and Brian Hoeflich on drums.

“You’d be hard pressed to find anyone who was a coming-of -age teenager in the mid-’90s to not have at least been aware of the importance of Green Day, if not a die-hard fan of the band,” said Bruce Hall, Green Dayton’s bassist. “Some of us would claim they changed music as we understood it and maybe even became the direct reason a handful of us became musicians. Unlike a lot of their contemporaries of the day, they have stood the test of time and have somehow been the biggest band in the world to multiple generations of music fans.”

Tickets to the show are $7 in advance and $10 at the door. To purchase advance tickets, visit The Pizza Bandit, Yellow Cab Tavern's resident food truck, will be selling pizza by the slice throughout the night of the performance.

“Early to mid-90s Green Day was what I cut my teeth on as a teenager learning to play guitar, sing and perform with a band,” said Green Dayton guitarist Justin Roseberry. “It's awesome that I get to actually perform these songs I've been playing for 25 years.”
