Description

B-52s

“I can think of no other band that is synonymous with the words party and good times than the B-52's. Their infectious music layered with dance grooves galore, that frankly just makes your body move has been in high gear for the past 35 years.” – Yahoo! Voices

It is well known that the B-52s are The World’s Greatest Party Band. And nearly forty years and over twenty million albums into their career, there can be no doubt as to why they remain one of rock music’s most beloved and enduring bands. Any mystery concerning the band’s longevity and ongoing appeal is immediately solved when exposed to a B-52s concert experience. From groundbreaking songs like “Rock Lobster,” “Dance This Mess Around” and “Private Idaho“ to chart-topping hits like “Love Shack” and “Roam” and “Deadbeat Club” to their thrilling reemergence on the pop scene with their 2008 CD Funplex the B-52s’ unforgettable dance-rock tunes start a party every time their music begins.

Sh-Booms

Central Florida’s The Sh-Booms have taken a love for soul, rock ‘n’ roll, and throwing a party to create a unique, garage-soul sound of their own.

The seven-piece soul enterprise – comprised of Al “The Thump” Ruiz, The Supreme Queen Mizz Bren, Kevin “The Skin Blaster” Connolly, Davis “Twinkle Toes” Schleicher, Mike “The Slush Pump” Ortiz, and Nick “The Licks” Walsh – are a horn-fueled, soul-soaked presence on the stage, which they’ve shared with national acts such as Lee Fields, St. Paul & The Broken Bones, KRS-One, and Candlebox. Their fresh brand of garage soul has been recognized locally as well, as Orlando Weekly’s “Best Soul Act” for the past four years running.
