    I really enjoy the variety of bands that come, and I know there are only so many concerts you’re able to schedule, but I have to say, I miss the Billy Joel and Elton John tribute bands. How did they not make the cut?

  • Donny

    We tried …

    They are a GREAT act, however unfortunately their rates went up and we could no longer afford to bring them in. Even though they we weren’t able to bring the Piano Man and the Rocket Man in, I still think we have an AWESOME line up this year!

    See ya there!
