The American Optometric Association has announced that it is celebrating the decade of the 90s at its annual Optometry’s Meeting, June 24-28, in National Harbor, Maryland/Washington, D.C.
“Mark McGrath’s ’90s Experience” will headline the closing Celebration of Optometry, sponsored by Hoya Vision Care, on Saturday, June 27, at the Gaylord National Resort & Convention Center.
“Few bands embody the look, sound and attitude of ’90s alternative/pop rock more than Sugar Ray, and no member is more instantly recognizable than their front man, Mark McGrath. In his new show, McGrath teams up with drummer Dean Butterworth-of Sugar Ray and Good Charlotte fame-for a high-energy, easy-to-sing-along show, packed with all your favorite ’90s hits,” according to an AOA news release.
In addition to singing the big hits that kept Sugar Ray on the charts and a household name, Mr. McGrath and Mr. Butterworth will perform a variety of covers inspired by McGrath’s time touring with some of the biggest Hip Hop and R&B artists of the ’90s on the “I Love the ’90s Tour.” Always a crowd pleaser and always full of audience engagement and interaction, this show is guaranteed to keep you dancing.
It’s that lasting ’90s flare and notoriety that keeps Mr. McGrath in the public spotlight. Aside from more than a decade’s worth of appearances on TV and films, Mr. McGrath also hosts his own SiriusXM radio show, “Mark McGrath’s 120” on the “’90s on 9” channel, as well as touring with Sugar Ray on the “I Love the ’90s Tour” and “Under the Sun Tour.”
“This is my life’s work and I’m honored that these songs I wrote have such a connection and meaning to people,” he said. “No need to ask me how long I’ll be doing this, I can’t imagine a life without performing these songs, and thankfully they seem to have a timeless quality.”
Hosted by Mr. McGrath, the Celebration of Optometry also will feature DJ Cory, the Red Hot Band, interactive ’90s entertainment and video arcade, fireworks and more.
