5:00 - 6:30 pm  Dirty Rotten Scoundrels

            From Des Moines, Dirty Rotten Scoundrels is 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”.

7:00 - 9:00 pm  Meet the Beetles

            Meet the Beetles is a loving tribute to John, Paul, George, and Ringo. Whether recreating the concerts or the psycadelic late sixties, Meet The Beetles brings an energy to the stage that is sure to lead to Beatlemania. Each band member is a skilled musician as well as a talented actor/impersonator, paying homage to his character. Performing the early Beatle hits (such as "I Want To Hold Your Hand" and "Help!"), the band recreates the look, sound, and incredible energy of a live Beatles concert. With the later songs (such as "Revolution" and "Something"), the performance whisks the audience into the psychedelia of the late sixties. The illusion is complete with costumes, accents, vintage equipment (just like the Beatles used), and witty banter. It's not scripted, so every show is unique. Meet The Beetles high energy show has been featured at venues including the Navy Pier Grand Ballroom, US Cellular Field, Conseco Fieldhouse, Pepsi Colliseum, and the Mall Of America.
