Update: Due to health issues, the Resonators have had to cancel their upcoming appearance at MGM Northfield Park — Center Stage.

“As some of you may be aware, in early 2020 I had one of my kidneys removed due to cancer," says band member Tommy Dobeck in a statement. "That cancer has reared its ugly head again. Treatments will be starting fairly soon, and after much thoughtful deliberation I’ve decided to focus all my energy on my health and my family, and back away from the December show. After making my decision, my band family, the Resonators, made the unanimous decision to cancel the show. That kind of support only comes from true friends. The show must go on, but not always as scheduled! I’m looking forward to playing in 2023, with this hiccup in my life in the rearview mirror.”

Original Post 8/19/2022: This year marks the 40th anniversary of the Michael Stanley Band's record setting run of sold-out concerts at Blossom Music Center. To commemorate the milestone and pay tribute to the the late Stanley's catalog, the Resonators, Stanley's former backing band, have announced their return on Dec. 9 to MGM Northfield Park — Center Stage to celebrate the Stanley songbook.

Fans can take advance of a special ticket presale offer for the Resonators concert at MGM Northfield Park — Center Stage from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. on Thursday, Aug. 25, by using the offer code "applause."

The Resonators are Tommy Dobeck, Rodney Psyka, Eroc Sosinski, Marc Lee Shannon, Paul Wolf Christensen, Gary Lee Jones, David Young and Ed Caner.
