June 19, 2014 at 6:00pm Groove Lounge: Groove Lounge combines DJ beats with live instrumentation and vocals to create an infectious sound that incorporates elements of soul, pop, hip-hop, blues, down tempo, and world music.

They are a complete 6 piece band with a smoking horn section and three diverse lead vocalists.
July 10, 2014 at 6:00pm Honey Train: Ready to party? Think 50's Boogie Woogie and Swing, 60's Beatles and folk, 70's classic rock and disco funk, 80's and 90's dance, and current Billboard hits. The musicians in Honey Train have been playing together for several years and the difference is immediately palatable. They bring fun and expertise to every show, and their energy rubs off on everyone in the room.
