She has played for Taylor Swift and Kenney Chesney audiences and headlines numerous Northwestern events.

July 18, The Mix: The Mix combines the best of a live band with non-stop song mixes, playing not only the best current Top 40 but everything from 70s funk and disco to 80s pop and rock. The Mix hails from Seattle and is high energy, playing at festivals, clubs and casinos all up and down the I-5 corridor.

July 25, The Pop-Offs: The Pop-Offs is a classic pop-rock band that plays songs from the 60s through today. They are known for their near-perfect renditions of The Police, Queen and more. They played a half-time ceremony for a Seahawks game to great success a few years ago and have been continuing to rock the region since.

Aug. 1: Duke and Mojo Nation: This local rock band knows its music and impresses all audiences. They are pop rock-and-roll at its best. Steve Cutting and his crew are old pros at moving audiences from seats to dance floors or lawns. His new bandmates have upped their game from an already impressive show.

Aug. 8: The Crocs: Back by very popular demand, this improvisational indie-funk-Latin-reggae-folk rock band plays memorable covers of audiences’ favorite songs. They’re the perfect act to encapsulate the summer. They had a big crowd up and dancing two years ago and we just had to have them back.
