rockstarrodeo RockStar Rodeo is more than just your average country band, and a lot more than just your ordinary rock show. They strive to give every fan a true concert experience. RockStar Rodeo takes pride in real, genuine entertainment. These guys and gal deliver one of the most high-energy and professional performances in the Midwest. One minute you'll feel the energy as the crowd sways their hands side to side while singing Wagon Wheel, and the next minute, they're playing the air guitar to an ageless hit like Shook Me All Night Long. Guaranteed, RockStar Rodeo will give all concertgoers an experience they will enjoy and remember forever.
July 25th - Sushi Roll

If we had only one word to describe Sushi Roll, it would be AMAZING! Formed in early 2012, Sushi Roll quickly perfected their own unique blend of high-energy dance music and rock n roll swagger and then topped it off with memorable stage costumes, inspired by Cosplay, Anime, and Super heros. Founded by music industry vets and fronted by two of the most mesmerizing young lead singer's in Chicago, Sushi Roll is made up of one part driving rock band, one part light-hearted pop, and one part over-the-top theatrical verve. Welcome to the Land of the Rising Fun with Sushi Roll!
