It was announced yesterday that Philly’s own classic rock band, The Hooters, will open for Bob Seger at Boardwalk Hall this Saturday. The Hooters earned fame early on when they wrote “Time After Time” for Cyndi Lauper, which was nominated for a Grammy as “song of the Year.” The band’s other hit songs include “All You Zombies,” “Day By Day” and “and We Danced.”

On Sunday, Aug. 22, the Gold Foundation hosted its sixth annual Margate Rock Festival, a free summer blockbuster concert presented by Harrah’s Entertainment. The live concert featured The Hooters, whose show was followed by a fireworks display over the Margate bayfront sponsored by Tomatoe’s Restaurant.
The Hooters hit the club scene in 1980 and skyrocketed to national prominence with hit songs like “Day By Day,” “And We Danced,” “Where do the Children Go,” “All You Zombies,” “Hanging on a Heartbeat,” “Can’t Get Blood from a Stone” and others. Original band members Eric Bazilian, Rob Hyman and Dave Uosikkinen were later joined by Fran Smith and John Lilley, and that combination has remained intact for over 20 years.
