GARAGE ACT NO MORE: Ryan Cabrera.
Ryan Cabrera, whose garage-band hobby has turned into recent international pop-rock stardom, will perform Saturday, July 9, in Hot Springs at Magic Springs and Crystal Falls theme park’s Timberwood Amphitheater.
Cabrera, from Dallas, has hit the top 10 with such songs as “On the Way Down,” “True” and “Exit to Exit.”
Cabrera’s first break came when his brother bought him a block of studio time, which led to the self-released recording “Elm Street.” Atlantic Records signed the prodigy, and next came the hit album “Take It All Away.”
The Jeff Johnson Band, an up-and-coming rock-acoustic group out of Oxford, Miss., with two successful albums, will open the show at 7 p.m.
The concert is free with paid admission to the park, either a season-pass ($39.95) or a one-time admission ($23.99).
