Featuring Three Stages of Live Entertainment!
13th Army Band – Florida National Guard
The citizen-soldiers of The 13th Army Band, Florida National Guard has been serving the State of Florida, our nation, and our local communities since 1906. Today’s band features teachers, cops, students, nurses and a myriad of professions and interests working together to make great music. Military musicians have been called upon since the birth of our great nation to sustain our warriors, to inspire, to raise morale during official state functions, in times of disaster and for goodwill missions. The musicians also provide support for military funeral honors demonstrating the last full measure of respect to fallen veterans. Whatever the occasion, Florida’s military musicians are here to support the modern warrior, future soldiers, veterans and the American public.
Atlantic recording artist Jacquie Lee has arrived in extraordinary fashion with her debut “BROKEN ONES,” hitting the Top 10 on the iTunes Pop Chart upon release. The inspiring title track has also drawn nearly 7 million streams on Spotify and major airplay from Radio Disney. Hailed by Elle as a preternatural belter who blends powerhouse pop with the bluesy, lovelorn vibe of Janis Joplin,” Jacquie has further garnered critical praise from such national outlets as Glamour, Seventeen, MTV.com, and more. Passionately performed and powerfully personal, Jacquie Lee’s “BROKEN ONES” immediately affirms the 17-year-old New Jersey native as an exceptional singer/songwriter with a singular voice and limitless future.
North of Nine
ALIVE is the title for North of Nine’s debut EP, and it’s also the perfect description of their sound: a vibrant mosaic of robust piano, expansive guitars, and irresistible vocals. The group—Jackson Guthy [vocals, piano], Rob Ketchum [drums], Michael O’Grady [guitar], Nolan Frank [keyboards], and Edison Lo [bass]—create honest and hypnotic pop ignited by a soulful rock spark. With executive producer Randy Jackson and their upbeat first single, “Can It Be You?,” North of Nine is about the reach for the stars.
Samantha Russell Band
The moment you hear The Samantha Russell Band, you know you are in for a great evening of some of the best live Country music in South Florida. Covering songs from many of today’s top Country Music stars, The Samantha Russell Band, led by their powerful vocalist Samantha Russell, brings the crowd to their feet and guarantees a good time for all. The band also features songs from Classic Country and Rock artists, originals, and an occasional current pop tune, just for flavor. The talented musicians in the group add a unique and fresh spin to many favorites.
Andrew Morris Band
Performing since he was a child, Andrew has the heart and soul of a country music legend. With a lifelong love of country music, he embraces the traditional style of country music. The Andrew Morris Band plays all over south Florida from Vero Beach to Miami covering the country classics to the latest hits on country radio. Of course being southern boys, they have to throw in a little southern and classic rock from time to time. Together since 2010, they have honed their style and always leave the crowds wanting more. One fan said, “I don’t like country music, but I love these guys!”
The Chalk Guys
The Chalk Guys, Hector Diaz and Ken Mullen, create custom 3D and traditional 2D chalk art for special events. First introduced to street painting through the Lake Worth Street Painting Festival, in Florida, Hector was hooked from the start. He quickly paired with lifelong friend Ken, to recreate a William Waterhouse painting, which would soon become the first of many collaborations. Eventually, the Chalk Guys started to create larger pieces that eventually developed into the 3D style they are known for today. In the past few years, having officially dubbed themselves the “Chalk Guys,” they have shared their 3D street paintings all over the United States. For these chalk guys, street painting is about more than just an image on a street. It’s about the process, the crowd interaction, and the great friendships they have forged along the way.
5:30 p.m. Puppet Parade around the event site
6:00 & 7:45 p.m. Stage performances of Rip Van Winkle
Bits ‘N Pieces Puppet Theatre presents their original musical adaptation of Washington Irving’s classic, Rip Van Winkle. This unique combination of talented puppeteers and actors brings a new perspective to the tale. Nine-foot-tall puppets take Irving’s great adventure to new heights with singing, dancing and, yes, even bowling with the boys of the Catskill Mountains! While some men work for a better tomorrow, Rip Van Winkle is easily distracted by the lure of having fun today. He learns a difficult lesson that by sleeping his life away, his dreams slip away too. His life has passed him by. It’s classic literature at its best!
