The Breeze with Wild Oats, 8:30 p.m. Saturday, Tangier, 532 W. Market St., Akron. $15, 330-376-7171, thetangier.com.
Longtime fans of locally bred country music may remember the Breeze’s heyday when it was the house band at Rose Lounge in Copley from the early 1980s through late 1990s. It was a Midwestern mainstay that opened for artists such as Randy Travis, Conway Twitty and Waylon Jennings. The band even played for the president and appeared on Charlie Daniels’ “Talent Roundup” before breaking up in 1997. Now the group is back for one more show, its first at Tangier. Country band Wild Oats will open.
Salsa nights in Akron, 8 p.m. Thursday, Uncorked Wine Bar, 22 N. High St., Akron. Free, uncorkedakron.com.
Three years of inspiring Akronites to bachata, salsa, merengue, bomba and more will be celebrated at Uncorked with dance demos from Anderson Sylvestre from Starz Ball Cleveland and Benga DaBeatz & Franchesca DiSanto, who will unleash some groovy Afro-Fusion moves for you to embarrassingly attempt to emulate.
