Rock Stage Lineup - 2018

Sponsored By:


Joe 2.0

6:30 pm-9:30 pm

Joe 2.0 is everything you've always wanted in a band, but were afraid to ask for.
Comprised of an electric string quartet(2 violins, viola, cello) plus drums and the world class vocals of Xeno (Original Lead Singer for Cheap Trick),
Joe 2.0 is like a rock band and symphony orchestra all rolled into one. They perform powerful and unique yet very accessible arrangements of pop and rock songs that span the generations.
From early legends like Aretha Franklin, the Righteous Brothers, and Roy Orbison, to the classics like Led Zeppelin, The Beatles, Rolling Stones, The Animals, and David Bowie, to 21st Century standouts like the Black Keys, Radiohead, John Legend, Joe 2.0 is able to appeal to virtually any audience in a one of a kind way.
They have performed to capacity crowds at festivals such as Summerfest, Bastille Days, and Bayview Bash and have also wowed attendees of weddings and corporate events.
The string players in the band are all renowned classical performers, which makes it possible for Joe 2.0 to perform more elegant, acoustic music if needed for wedding ceremonies, receptions, dinners, and other events.
When the crowd is ready to rock, Joe 2.0 transforms into a full on 6 piece rockestra to ensure the evening ends on a high note.

This three-piece uses vintage instruments, clothes and sounds to produce a Rush concert experience that is unparalleled for the casual fan as well as the most discerning Rush fan.

Cold Soda Club

11:30 am-2:15 pm

We're the Cold Soda Club from Sheboygan, Wisconsin. If you were to put us into a specific genre it'd probably be alternative rock, but we enjoy making all types of music. This is because we draw influences from not only alternative rock, but also blues, classic, funk, and pop rock. We are five guys who met in high school that somehow ended up in one place with one common interest.

The core group of Matt Theobald, Yeekeng Yang, and Trevor Damkot formed early in high school, later adding Lucas Goebel to hop behind the drums. Finally, in the summer of 2015, Cold Soda Club (at that time known as "The Inventors") claimed vocalist and frontman Tyler Maxon off of waivers. The full group of five has been hitting the road in mom vans ever since, performing and entertaining crowds of every kind.

When we first formed the Cold Soda Club, we could never decide on which covers to do because we all liked so many different kinds of music. We decided the only way to incorporate all of our musical tastes was to create our own music, bringing in the musical personalities of all members. This is what gives Cold Soda Club our sound. We also enjoy bringing our personalities to the stage so people can really see who we are and how poor our dance moves are. While the dance moves may be poor, one thing that we pride ourselves on and will hopefully make you remember our unique name is our energetic stage presence. We've been together for a long while, but we've always considered a strong stage presence to be crucial, in addition to good music, of course.
