2020 Entertainment Line up


Miles Nielsen and the Rusted Hearts

Miles Nielsen and the Rusted Hearts are one of the most talented bands active today. Led by free-wheeling front man Nielsen, they've been wowing audiences for years with the diversity of their sound, the tightness of their 4-part harmonies, and the quality of their song craft. Equally comfortable in a compact 3-minute pop song and an epic 10-minute jam, the band has toured incessantly since their inception in 2011, amassing an army of hardcore followers that have dubbed themselves the Rusted Herd.

Porky's Groove Machine

Porky's Groove Machine has been getting both funky and silly since the fall of 2011. Formed in in Appleton, WI and now based in Minneapolis, MN, they have spent the last seven years performing everywhere from dirty basements to historic theaters, for audiences comprising anyone from middle school birthday party-goers to high-powered construction executives. While their costumes and sense of humor show their willingness to not take themselves too seriously, their dedication to high-energy and high-entertainment performances is anything but laughable. With classic covers, quirky originals, and synchronized dance moves (for band and audience alike), their live shows are a delight for crowds of all ages. Learn more ’
