Jan. 9--Although tickets aren't on sale yet, a concert announced today should have the Riverwalk Amphitheatre rocking like it's 1974.

Bob Wech, who gained fame with Fleetwood Mac, Marty Balin of Jefferson Airplane, the Edgar Winter Group and Ambrosia will perform an all-star '70s concert at 8 p.m. on March 30 at the Riverwalk Ampitheatre.

"These musicians probably had 40 or so top-40 hits among them," said Royce Richardson, who is promoting the show.

Richardson said this is just the first of a slate of concerts coming up this year. If even the majority of them come through, he said it would "be the best lineup of music that's come to this area in decades."

Welch was a member of Fleetwood Mac from 1971-1974, and had solo hits such as "Sentimental Lady
" and "Ebony Eyes" after he left the group to form his own band.

Balin was a co-founder of Jefferson Airplane and Jefferson Starship, and performed on such hits as "Somebody to Love," "White Rabbit" and "Miracles," before going solo and having such top 40 hits as "Hearts" and "Atlanta Lady."

Ambrosia had five top-40 hits during the '70s, including "Biggest Part of Me" and "How Much I Feel."

The Edgar Winter Group had three top-40 hits during the '70s, including "Frankenstein" and "Free Ride."
