Garth Live Tribute Band
Arguably the best-known country icon of our time, Garth Brooks shattered records for both sales and concert attendance throughout the 1990s and beyond. Kip Sweeny will make you do a double take as he performs this heavy-hitter’s best known hits such as “Two Piña Coladas” and “Friends in Low Places.” A well established performer in his own right, Kip’s dynamic vocals range from stage acts portraying KC and the Sunshine Band to his own band, Night Moves, which he fronts.
Valerie Nasko has spanned the globe paying tribute to Shania Twain for more than fifteen years with performances spanning three continents! Valerie’s meticulous impersonation is not only visual but vocal, capturing the essence of the country mega-star. After a successful running show at Caesar’s Palace in Las Vegas, Valerie kicks off her first major North American tour in over a decade, stopping to rock Pompano with her impeccable country charm. Simply Shania has had the honor of performing alongside country music greats as George Jones and Tanya Tucker, and playing at renowned venues such as Universal Studios Orlando, Harrah’s Phoenix Casino Resort, New York City’s Grand Central Terminal and Galveston Moody Gardens Convention Center, as well as countless outdoor concerts, fairs and events.
Kenny Chesney’s easygoing country boy attitude has earned him nine gold and platinum records and record-breaking musical tours. His 2007 Flip-Flop Summer Tour was the highest-grossing country road trip of the year. The six accomplished musicians of Pirate Flag pay tribute to Kenny’s laid-back music and beach-bum wisdom, performing original recordings. Pirate Flag recreates Kenny’s concerts, playing all of his hits you know and love. Pirate Flag recreates the outstanding musicianship and showmanship that has driven Kenny to sell out stadiums and build his “No Shoes Nation.”
