July 8 – Semple: This dynamic band is fronted by one of the city's most prominent lead singers and the band's namesake, Keith Semple. As a participant in Season 9 of the The Voice, Keith had two chairs turn during his blind audition, subsequently choosing Adam Levine to be his coach. He went on to win both his battle round and knockout round performances, advancing all the way to the top 20 live rounds. With styles ranging from 70s Rock to modern pop songs, everyone is sure to enjoy the entertaining combination of musicianship and high energy stage performance with Semple.

July 15 - Tropixplosion:  Playing much more than the standard steel drum band fare. Tropixplosion plays an amazing variety of music-not only tropical favorites, but many reggae classics and pop/rock party songs re-arranged to feel like the Islands. New, classic and many other surprises, all performed with an exotic twist! 

July 22 – Deacon Blues: Featuring a group that reads as a "who's who" of world class musicians from the Chicago area, Deacon Blues re-defines the Steely Dan tribute experience! In the words of legendary Chicago radio personality Bob Stround (WDRV-FM "The Drive") - "If you are a Dan fan, you owe it to yourself to see Deacon Blues-they've got all the right musicians with all the right chops-they are an incredible tribute to the music of Steely Dan!"

August 12 – The Moods: Award-winning recording and performing artists since 1995, The Moods consists of four guys devoted to the art of harmony and choreography.

August 19 – Heartache Tonight: From the powerful guitar duel in Hotel California to the shimmering harmonies in Peaceful Easy Feeling, Heartache Tonight delivers a true Eagles experience, capturing the excitement of one of the world's super bands. Heartache Tonight showcases all their greatest hits, and has wowed audiences at Ravinia, House of Blues, Taste of Chicago and Wrigley Field.
