Hailing from South Omaha, Spare Change is a talented assembly of misfits covering the music that influenced their childhood. They can play many genres, but focus primarily on an array of timeless Rock & Pop songs by artists ranging from Led Zeppelin to Bruno Mars. Spare Change promises to put on a high energy show, tailored to the crowd, that will make people want to dance or bang their head!
