ever experienced. Somewhere in between an epic rock/pop concert,
intimate piano bar, multimedia visuals, laugh-out-loud comedy, and
competitive audience participation. Music you will love, games, prizes,
dancing, laughing, singing along….you name it, they bring it. This is a full on multi-media experience, with videos, lights, great sound, and an incredible show. They have performed all over the country for clients including Sinclair, Union Pacific, NBC, GE Healthcare, Little Giant Ladder, opened for the Beach Boys and many others. This will be a show you will keep talking about. To see a video, click here:
