SRO heads picks for the weekend

Take a nostalgic trip with the show band SRO Saturday night at Charlie's Down Under.

The band performs from 9 p.m. to 1 a.m. Saturday at Charlies Down Under, 1950 N.Buffalo Drive. The show is free.

Lead singer is Rico Diamonti. The band leader is Rico Madrid, who plays bass and trumpet, sometimes both at the same time.

“We are a high energy show that will take everybody on a trip down memory lane,” Madrid says.

The group also has landed a regular Thursday night gig at Roxy’s in Sam’s Town starting in September.
