With a name like semi toned, you can tell this group doesn't take itself too seriously. This British singing sensation is a charmingly offbeat all-male a cappella group sure to delight audiences, whether it be by their voices, British accents or maroon tuxedos. The 12 disarmingly handsome singers (eye candy anyone?) take audiences on a musical journey from the '70s to the pop hits of today, breaking moves such as the Lindy Hop, the Macarena and beyond. Phew, it's all a little much, but it's that kind of over-the-top greatness you can't help but love. // 7pm. Tower Theatre, Bend. TowerTheatre.org $25-45

"He always sets the musical bar high, his band always knocks me out, and I'm thrilled we are going to spend the summer together doing a great run of concerts," said Miller. "This is the kind of quality and talent we both strive to present and I'm looking forward to a summer of great music, exceptional performances and fun. Peter is a remarkable musician.." says the guy that IS Steve Miller. Come see both of these legends knock it out of the park. Tickets go on sale this Friday at 10am. // 6pm.
