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.
