Davenport, IA - As the Music of Led Zeppelin Spring Pops concert reaches "must-see" status in the Quad Cities, the QCSO is announcing another way to enjoy the weekend - the Spring Pops Pre-Party. From 5 to 7 on May 30, the parking lot behind the Adler, on Brady Street between 3rd and 4th Street, will be blocked off and set aside for a pre-concert party. Attending the party will be Music of Led Zeppelin conductor/arranger Brent Havens, lead singer Randy Jackson, and Greg Dwyer from the 97X morning show Dwyer and Michaels.

Admission to the party is free and vendors will be selling grilled food from Sunshine Concessions and locally brewed beer from Great River Brewery. Great River Brewery, the Quad Cities' newest, tapped its first keg this spring. Their products are available on tap at establishments throughout the area and are coming soon in 16-ounce cans. Beer from Great River Brewery will also be available inside the Adler during the concert.

Performing at the Spring Pops Pre-Party will be one of the most contagious bands in the Quad Cities - Deadroots. Every Deadroots show is a collage of Rock, Funk, R & B, Bluegrass, Jam, and Jazz. Since it's birth in 1999, the band has evolved into the core line-up of Steve Braddy, Josh Long, John Bechtel, and Jared Hughes. Over the years, Deadroots has gained a reputation for its incredibly catchy and well-crafted original tunes as well as its original takes on cover tunes.

Tickets for the Music of Led Zeppelin Spring Pops concert start at $16 and can be purchased at www.ticketmaster.com, 800-745-3000, and all Ticketmaster outlets.
