August 9 – Midnight Piano Band

The Midnight Piano Band is a throwback to the days before DJs and producers dominated the radio.  With no smoke and mirrors, lip-syncing or modern gimmicks, the Midnight Piano Band is a celebration of the good old days when bands played their instruments and sang on stage. The band loves playing classic piano rock hits from the 70s and 80s, featuring artists like Elton John, Billy Joel, Paul McCartney, Stevie Wonder and many more. They are equally at home with dance floor jams by artists like Usher, Bruno Mars, Justin Timberlake, and Earth Wind and Fire.

September 13 – Three Pedros

The Three Pedros  can be easily summed up in two words: EXPERIENCED PROFESSIONALS. While most local musicians were cutting their teeth in the basement or playing bottom-feeder local gigs, the members of the Three Pedros were touring regionally and nationally in support of their respective releases. While other cover bands stick to one genre, Vote for Pedro covers the whole spectrum of popular music. Their set list contains such modern rock bands as The Killers, U2, Red Hot Chili Peppers, and Jet. They also throw in a touch of classic rock by the likes of Queen, Cheap Trick, AC/DC, and Tom Petty
