Michael Neuhaus is a 22 year old rising pop musician specializing in vocals and production. His sound is characterized by a "nostalgic, retro vibe with a modern sound."
The Chris Canas Band has a well blended set of classic covers and clever, roller coaster like originals that keep the audience captivated and coming back for more. With their diverse mix of Blues, Funk, and Soul they are always well equipped to bring the party wherever they go and have the dance moves to boot. With heart-wrenching vocals, pulse pounding rhythms, and an electric energy that can be felt in the air, this band is unstoppable.
8:00 - 9:30pm
Orquesta Ritmo's goal is to introduce and entertain the American public in the electrifying genre of Latin Music. The Band was formed in the late 70’s as a smaller group plus a dance troupe to participate in the US Bicentennial Celebration. In the mid 80’s it became the ten piece group that currently performs. They have opened for a number of national and international acts, including such artists as Salsa great Oscar D’Leon, recording artists Los Lobos,The Bangles, and Pete Escovído among others. The band has also garnered a number of accolades including a Special Tribute from the Michigan Legislature for promoting the Cuban Culture in the Mid-Michigan area.
