    5:00 pm – Central Stage – Second Hand Soul Band
    Motown, soul, and rock & roll is exactly the sound that defines this Chicago band. Second Hand Soul Band takes you back to the days when all that mattered was meeting your friends for some drinks and an all-night-dance party! This energetic, dynamic, seven-piece band has many years of experience and really knows how to entertain! Between the funky hits of the 70s, the one-hit wonders, the disco, and the soulful songs of that era, you will be moved to dance and sing “songs you remember from the nights you don’t!”

    7:00 pm – Central Stage – The Boy Band Night
    The impact of 90’s music created a paradigm shift in pop-culture that has continued to evolve through the decades. The fusion of musical genres forged an era of heartthrob adolescents unmistakably known as “boy bands”. Paying homage to the many iconic groups we know today, The Boy Band Night brings America’s only live tribute to pop sensations like The Backstreet Boys, *NSYNC, New Kids On The Block, Boys II Men, One Direction, and many more! These top-tier musicians bring a musical and visual experience with note-for-note representations of all your favorite songs accompanied by the signature choreography from the music videos we remember. Don’t miss this opportunity to see this nationally touring act from Chicago!
