Mad Mad Men – Sunday June 11 (Genre: Early 60s Hits)
“THE MAD MAD MEN” will transport you back to the days of sharkskin suits, polaroid cameras and the whiskey sour…a time when every AM car radio played the tunes that would become the “Baby-Boomer” hits of today. While Frank, Dean and Sammy were Rat Packin’ it, Tony Bennett was singing about San Francisco and Nat King Cole was rolling out those “Lazy, Hazy, Crazy Days of Summer.”
So relax and let ”THE MAD, MAD MEN” take you back to 1961 for a night of memories that you’ll never forget!

Cadence – Sunday June 25 (Genre: A Capella, 80s Hits)
The stage lights fall, the crowd goes quiet, and four harmonious voices rise up and fill the air. The melodies unfurl into something both familiar and fresh. What comes next may be a classic song by Joni Mitchell or Louis Prima. It may be an old bebop standard or cheeky arrangement of a 1980s hit. But these are arrangements like you’ve never heard them before, containing all the richness of a full band, but performed using just four voices. This is Cadence.
Food Truck: Fetty’s Street Food
The American Kings – Sunday July 9 (Genre: Rock/Oldies)
No one gives the Rock N’ Roll songs of the past greater justice than The American Kings. When the guys go on stage, their goal is to give a performance that Elvis would be proud of. That’s a high standard to live up to, but The Kings pull it off night after night. No one does it quite like The American Kings…
And they like it that way!

Adelee & Gentry – Sunday July 23 (Alternative Pop/Rock)
Sisters Adelee and Gentry have been singing and performing as a duo for the past five years in and around their hometown of West Alexandria, Ohio. These sisters of harmony have gone from being “just” small town girls to rising stars on the Nashville scene.
Food Truck: Bo J’s Southern Eats
Jeff German & the Blankety Blanks – Sunday August 6 (Genre: Blues/Classic Rock)
When asked to describe his band’s sound, German struggles to define the band’s genre. Country? Americana? Classic Rock? German resorts to quoting a review the band received saying “his songs were best served cold after a long hard day’s work.” Great for relaxing and enjoying some tunes with good friends and family.
Food Truck: Poppy’s Roadside Diner
Hotel California – Sunday August 20th (Genre: Tribute)
Hotel California’s Salute to the Eagles was founded with the intent of filling the void left by the demise of The Eagles in 1982. By blending their extraordinary vocal and musical talents, HOTEL CALIFORNIA faithfully and accurately reproduces the sound of the Eagles studio recordings while recreating a classic sound which undeniably transcends the boundaries of Rock, R&B, and Country while delivering a modern, action packed performance that brings this timeless music into the new millennium.
