On Wednesday evening Mike & Joe takes the stage to show why they are one of the most popular cover bands in the Midwest. Playing modern and alternative music from the '90s through today, you are sure to recognize these songs.
From classic rock to jazz, a rhythm section that's red hot and a horn section that smokes, Thursday evening is sure to be a crowd-pleaser with Brother John.
On Friday, Spoken Four will “tear the roof off,” performing more than five decades of music. They’ll rock your childhood fave, then astound you with today’s smash hits.
The festival’s music concludes Saturday evening with music from Yard Fulla Cars. Covering a wide variety of country and rock hits from the past and present, this enormously entertaining band will have you dancing and singing along in no time!
