5:00 p.m. | Kick-Off with DJ Percy

5:30 p.m. | Max Minardi

7:15 p.m. | Matt Bolton


MAX MINARDI is an internationally traveled singer-songwriter based in Northern California who has performed across the Western United States since 2012 playing an average of 150 shows every year. Blending influences from artists like Paul Simon, Iron & Wine, James Taylor, Ben Howard, and Ray Lamontagne, his songs focus on evocative lyricism and enchanting acoustic guitar work with origins in American Folk, Indie, and Roots music.  Aside from original songwriting, Minardi is an engaging cover artist who brings crowd favorites to life.  








MATT BOLTON is a modern-day one-man-band show using live-on-the-spot created loops and technology with a contemporary pop, classic rock, roots-rock vibe and feel. Often with hints of retro electronic, rock, reggae, and funk, he combines guitar, drums, bass sounds, keyboards, synth, harmonica, mic and live vocal sounds to create a full band sound and feel. Matt picks from a seemingly endless collection of covers and originals to create an unforgettable live performance in which his ingenuity in looping magically reproduces the feel and energy of a complete band with no pre-recorded tracks. 








DJ PERCY was fed hip hop with baby food and heart song with gospel church sermons. While other kids were hooked on phonics, he was hooked on funk. As he grew older and wiser, he learned essential entertainer skills like moonwalking, music recording, and planning events. He was called the "Chief Crowd Rocker" in a recent client review because he has fun at every event and the positive energy is not only palpable but contagious. His favorite type of music to play out is old-school hip hop, R&B, Funk, soul, and Rock n' Roll. Don't be surprised if he is lipo synching and grooving behind the decks!
