We always enjoy the Sounds Like Summer tribute band series. My kids grew up listening to classic rock and love it. They know the bands and the lyrics to most of the songs. So, I try make sure we see whomever is playing the weekends we're in Walt Disney World sometimes juggling ADRs around the schedules. 

It's a nice break from the park crowds or rain (if you sit in the first few sections) and fun for the whole family. There really isn't a bad seat in the theater as the performers have a long runway/stage they perform on that you can see from almost every seat. I say almost because there are a few trees planted in the viewing area that can sometimes obstruct a clear view.

Finding a seat for this series is a bit easier than for the Flower Power Concert Series who have fans lining up an hour ahead of time to see their favorite performers. Fun too is to grab a table at The Liberty Tavern and dine while listening to some great music.

The shows are at 5:30, 6:45 and 8 p.m. (except July 4th, see below) in the open-air America Gardens Theater in the World Showcase. Sounds Like Summer concerts are included with Epcot admission.

The schedule (entertainment subject to change without notice):
June 9 to 15: Stayin’ Alive ~ A Tribute to the Bee Gees
June 16 to 22: Hotel California ~ A Salute to the Eagles
June 23 to 29: Mike DelGuidice & Big Shot ~ The Ultimate Billy Joel Tribute Show
June 30 to July 6: Slippery When Wet ~ The Ultimate Bon Jovi Tribute
July 7 to 13: SouthBound and Company ~ A Tribute to Lynyrd Skynyrd
July 14 to 20: The Police Experience ~ A Tribute to The Police
July 21 to 27: 2U ~ A Tribute to U2

Show times are 5:30, 6:45 and 8:00 p.m. – except on July 4 when show times are 5:15, 6:30, 7:45 and 9 p.m.
