 Bad Authority 3:30pm – 4:30pm

Influenced by bands such as KISS, Ted Nugent, and Motley Crue, Bad Authority is a local band out of Carroll and has recaptured the true spirit of rock n’ roll. With loud guitars, thundering drums, and high-energy stage antics, Bad Authority delivers a powerful and explosive show.  

Omaha Street Percussion 4:30pm – 5:00pm (in the bar area)

A collection of drummers coming together to create a visually appealing, highly energetic form of drumming, using only unorthodox forms of percussion.

The Confidentials 5:00pm – 6:30pm

 Their influences range from the rock steady groove of the English Beat to the funky rhythms of 70’s party bands like Earth, Wind & Fire, Kool and the Gang, and Heatwave. With a style reminiscent of the soulful ballads of Motown, infused with the crispness of the Tijuana Bass, they have been collecting fans across the country for well over 25 years. The band is comprised of 11 seasoned performers and fronted by the Spurgeon brothers, Stan and Steve, who are known for their funky, soulful and spirited performances.  The Confidentials also feature a power house 3 piece horn section and driving rhythm section. The playlist is an incredible list of tunes from today and yesterday and is combined with themes of celebration, family and unity.  Their ever-expanding flock of fans will testify: “Harmony is not just a musical concept – it’s a personal goal.”

Dueling Pianos 7:00pm – 8:30pm

Andy Anderson & Mike Leeds provide dueling piano entertainment which is very high-energy and family friendly.

As an audience-focused show, they encourage the crowds to sing and dance along to popular songs that everyone knows and loves. They specialize in Top 40 pop-rock hits, but will attempt any song you throw their way! This is not a show you attend to sit and watch — the audience is instantly a part of the entertainment and will be involved throughout the performance.

Johnny Holm Band 9:00pm – 11:30pm

Leader and front man of the most widely known and traveled band in America, Johnny Holm is the most entertaining entertainer performing today. The show is dedicated to the fans, and they do most of the entertaining. Mostly impromptu, the show moves with the speed of lightning and changes direction as soon as “the pied piper” notices a lag. “Never a dull moment” was never a more true description.

Decoy creates its own unique sound from an eclectic mix of influences, building a live show that gets everyone in the audience dancing and singing along.

Casey Muessigmann – 3:00PM

Casey Muessigmann grew up in the small Midwest town of Spencer, Iowa. Getting his start in church and school choirs, he eventually expanded his horizons to local and state wide talent searches, including the Colegate Country Showdown, and an audition for American Idol in 2008. Deciding to take his music to the next level, he continued to hone his craft as a singer/songwriter, and in 2010 released his first album titled “Together We’ll Ride.” In 2012, Muessigmann participated in the open audition process for The Voice, Season 3. After battling through the early auditions, he won a slot in the Blind Auditions, and eventually turned the chairs of two judges, ultimately choosing to join Blake Shelton’s team. Since his elimination from the show, Muessigmann has used the entire experience as a springboard, continuing his writing and performing at several fairs, festivals, and casinos in the Midwest. His latest album, “Between the Rows,” was released in the spring of 2014, and is available for purchase on iTunes and other digital stores! Coming to a town near you, and leave a lasting impression!
