Back by popular demand:

Just Cream: An all-too-real tribute to the British band CREAM, the legendary trio that laid the foundation for the entire heavy rock genre. This talented group has performed locally at the HMB Pumpkin Festival and qualified as a finalist in KFOX’s “Last Band Standing.” This performance is not to be missed!

Joe Colella and Friends: Joe and friends offer an eclectic, electric musical journey mixing elements of rock, blues, folk, jazz, and other musical genres, improvised without a net. Put on your dancing shoes and enjoy the ride!  



Bring a creative cake for the Cake Walk. Fun for all ages!
