A battle of rock ’n’ roll tribute bands, the classic rock band Styx and a platinum-selling country duo are among the acts announced Thursday by the Disabled Persons Action Organization for its annual concert series.

First up is “Beatles vs. Stones — A Musical Showdown,” set for 7 p.m. Saturday, April 22, at the Dulles State Office Building in Watertown. Taking the side of the Beatles is Abbey Road, one of the country’s top tribute bands. They engage in a musical “showdown” of the hits against premier Stones tribute band Satisfaction. The act is a national touring show.

The multi mega-million selling band STYX will perform at 7 p.m. Thursday, June 1, indoors at the Watertown Fairgrounds Arena. Styx draws from over four decades chart hits, joyous singalongs and hard-driving deep cuts. Styx signed their first recording contract on Feb. 22, 1972. Among their hits: “The Grand Illusion,” “Renegade,” “Suite Madame Blue,” “Rockin’ The Paradise,” “Blue Collar Man (Long Nights),” “Too Much Time On My Hands” and “Come Sail Away.”

The band’s 17th album, “Crash of the Crown,” was released in 2021. There are two original members of the band who still tour with it.

Academy of Country Music new vocal duo/group of the year nominee Parmalee will perform at the Watertown Fairgrounds Arena at 7 p.m. on Friday, June 16. Parmalee is one of only four groups since 2001 to earn three consecutive top 10 Singles from a debut country album. Brothers Matt and Scott Thomas grew up in the small town of Paramele, North Carolina. They are joined by cousin Barry Knox and longtime friend Josh McSwain. Parmalee’s hits include “Carolina,” “Close Your Eyes,” “Already Callin’ You Mine” and “Roots.” The band’s latest album is “For You,” released in 2021.
