Featuring some of the hottest bands of the ’90s, including Everclear, Sugar Ray, Gin Blossoms, and Marcy Playground, Summerland makes a stop at Revel Friday, June 8.

Everclear, with vocalist Art Alexaksis, found its home in alternative music in the 1990s with hits like “Santa Monica” and “Heartspark Dollarsign.” Sugar Ray, led by Mark McGrath, was formed in Southern California as more of a metal band but became a pop rock band with hits “Every Morning,” “Someday,” and “When It’s Over.”
