ENTERTAINMENT!

Friday: Second Wind!   Playing 7:00 pm –11:00 pm!

They are a polished, high-energy band that features a killer rhythm section, top notch vocals and a tight and powerful 5-piece horn section. The band covers a wide variety of music ranging from the 60's through the present in a style that often surpasses the original hit. What's not to like? Ten guys playing their tail ends off & lovin' every minute of it. Featuring selections from Chicago and Huey Lewis to Korn & Kiss! They've got you covered with a Rock & Roll Soul and Horned-charged sound!!! 

Saturday: The Remains!  Playing 7:00 pm –11:00 pm!

They have been providing high quality musical entertainment for 30+ years! The band was formed in 1987 by a group of Cincinnati based musicians determined to take their public and private performances to a higher level with their own unique vocal blend and dedication to musical excellence. Also, by playing very well-known pop and rock tunes The Remains are specialists when it comes to getting a crowd singing along and dancing at their performances. 

Sunday:  The Whammies! Playing 5:15 pm -9:15 pm

The Whammies have taken Cincinnati by storm as the most entertaining and high energy 80's tribute act! This band gets people dancing in no time! The Whammies perform new wave, pop and classic rock hits and will also entertain you with the best music from the 80's (ok, and two songs from the late 70's, but who's counting).
