The Pork Tornadoes are a powerful party band that have played all around the Midwest at the biggest bars, festivals and weddings. Having played more than 400+ shows in the last 7 years, this band has perfected their live show into an experience you won’t find anywhere else. The Pork Tornadoes have the versatility and musicianship to pull off any genre of music from any decade, but they truly hit their stride and seem most comfortable while playing pop and rock hits from the last 25 years. One thing is for sure, once you think you have them figured out, they will shift gears and surprise you with something completely different and equally delightful. http://theporktornadoes.com
Dirty Rotten Scoundrels are a nostalgic trip back to the start of rock and roll, with a strict adherence to the 1950-1969 time frame. A trip back to when songs were tossed back and forth by artists, and one night could find Johnny Cash, Chuck Berry, and Jerry Lee Lewis all on the same stage. An experience of the birth of rock music, with over 50 songs from a time before music started its electronic shift. Their repertoire is ever-growing and assures you’ll be twisting all night long with their modern twist that continues to be true to the original sound. Like the king himself said, “Rock and Roll music, if you like it, if you feel it, you can’t help but move to it”. http://www.scoundrelsmusic.com
PIANOPALOOZA, fronted by Tony Bohnenkamp and Jerry Lorenson, are not your average dueling pianos band. Two of the most talented players and singers in the state, breathe new life into the best singalong songs from the 70s and 80s. The showmanship and humor involved in the show is an extra treat to audience members. http://tonybohnenkamp.com
