The popular rock band Creatures of Habit, made up of some of Midcoast Maine’s top musicians performing together for over two decades, will be rocking the rafters at the Rockport Opera House Saturday night. Consistently voted the area’s top band, they pride themselves on their interpretations of cover tunes, staying true to the original artists. The high energy and strong vocals will have folks dancing and singing along from the first beat.

The dance culminates the Aug. 12 daly-long celebration of the Rockport Opera House 25th birthday.
