11:00 AM ~ The Grease Band – 50’s – 60’s Rock N’ Roll Classics
Golden oldies from the 60s and late 50s. These are the songs that stood the test of time. All the hits and lots of hidden gems too. It started around 1955, with Buddy Holly, Bill Haley, Carl Perkins, Chuck Berry, Fats Domino, and, of course, Elvis. Those and many others revolutionized music and radio and opened the way for the 60s — the Beatles, the Stones, Dylan, the super groups and on. Lots of great music has been done since, but those 15 years gave us the classic hits that defined Rock and Roll.
2:00 PM ~ Joey Gulizia – Jazz
Joey has been performing since the age of ten, and continues to perform as a professional musician. He has proven diversity by working in many musical situations such as a featured artist with the Omaha Symphony, Nebraska Jazz Orchestra, Nebraska Brass, and countless other musical groups including his own. He has entertained on many cruise ships and has performed in Japan, Europe and the Caribbean. Joey tours with Mannheim Steamroller.
