“Hang On Sloopy.” “Bohemian Rhapsody.” “Rock and Roll, Hoochie Koo.” “Rocket Man.” “We Will Rock You.” “Bennie & the Jets.”

You’ll hear them all downtown this weekend when dozens of performers take the stage at Taste of Omaha.

Headlining the entertainment lineup is blues rocker Rick Derringer, a music veteran who has sung, played guitar, produced and written hit songs for decades.

Derringer first came to prominence when he sang “Hang On Sloopy” as a 17-year-old with the McCoys. Derringer later performed with Johnny Winter and Edgar Winter, and scored a hit with “Rock and Roll, Hoochie Koo.”

Derringer has also played guitar on numerous famous songs, such as “Total Eclipse of the Heart,” and he won Grammys for producing Weird Al Yankovic albums.

Taste of Omaha’s three music stages will have music Friday, Saturday and Sunday, and the lineup is filled with rock groups, cover bands and several tribute acts.

Killer Queen is a Queen tribute band, and Elton Dan & the Rocket Band will play songs from Elton John.
