About Larger Than Life
Larger Than Life “The Ultimate Boyband Tribute” started in New York and has taken the country by storm. This is the only act of its kind, featuring actual boyband singing, dancing, costumes and that pop look. The group will take you back in time, with the biggest 90s Party since the Backstreet Boys shut down Times Square. Performing over 40 Boyband songs by the Backstreet Boys, NSYNC, New Kids On The Block, 98 Degrees, O-Town, Boyz II Men, LFO, One Direction and many more, this is a one-of-a-kind experience! And, for extra fun, the boyz bring it way back with hits by The Jackson 5, Temptations, Four Seasons and other classic male groups – truly making this The Ultimate Boyband Tribute!
About Liquid Pleasure
After more than two decades of bringing audiences to their feet, Liquid Pleasure has become a multi-cultural icon. The band loves being in touch with people who love a variety of good music, and appreciate hearing it performed live, by a great dance and show band. The group has performed with greats like Chuck Berry, Eddie Floyd, Ben E. King, Whitney Houston, The Four Tops, The Temptations, and even Aretha Franklin.

About Broccoli Brothers Circus
Founded more than 15 years ago by musician and artist Mark Herbert, the Broccoli Brothers Circus features a rotating cast of performers who mix new and classic children’s music, puppetry with a bit of comedy to create a rockin’, hilariously enjoyable show for the whole family.
About Stray Local
Stray Local is the husband-and-wife songwriting duo of Jamie Rowen and Hannah Lomas, based in Raleigh, North Carolina. The pair performs a bouquet of indie sounds punctuated by well-crafted vocal melodies, catchy guitar riffs, and rich harmonies woven together with hints of their folk beginnings and pop sensibilities. Since the band’s formation, Stray Local, has performed internationally in Germany, France, Spain, Canada and across the United Kingdom, and have recently completed their first coast-to-coast national “Run Wild” tour — based around their campaign to promote healthy living and an active lifestyle.
About Striking Copper
Eclectic, familial folk-rock group Striking Copper effortlessly combines rhythm-driven rock, haunting vocal arrangements, and harmony-rich Americana. In doing so they deliver an unforgettable melodic sound their audience can’t stop dancing to. Led by powerhouse copper-haired twins, iconic front-women Allie and Jacquie Lee are inspiring trendsetters and natural performers who own every moment of the limelight. Hailing from the hills of New York, the band formed in 2013 as a four-piece, blending the talents of these siblings with their creative counterparts Matthew Donnelly (vocals, rhythm guitar) and Frank Cacciutto (drums). Finding their way to a new home on the Southern shoreline, the quartet adopted lead guitarist Daniel Bennett serendipitously after relocating to the cultural hub of Wilmington, NC. Seamlessly settling into a new dynamic, they have built an incredible fan base over the years, with tours spanning the eastern seaboard. An intriguing contrast of light and dark, feminine and masculine, their lyrics bleed passion, drawing from humanity with an undeniable vulnerability.
