Stew Stewart, January 28 – 30: Our resident Entertainment Manager is always a crowd favorite with his spontaneity, wit and ability to connect to the audience. A Stew Stewart show has something for everyone . . . country music, blues, oldies, comedy, classic rock, Motown and just plain ol' on-the-spot fun!  A Nevada entertainer for five decades, Stew has appeared at over 100 state and county fairs, many as the opening act for artists such as Johnny Cash, Merle Haggard, Waylon Jennings, Tammy Wynette, Loretta Lynn, Marie Osmond, Herman's Hermits, The Drifters, The Coasters, Willie Nelson, Kenny Rogers, Dolly Parton, The Oak Ridge Boys and more!  Stew's band is a show in itself and they will be joined by Stew for his performances at 8 and 10 p.m.

Jonny Smokes, January 31 – February 3:  While carrying the label of "One Man Band," this moniker fails miserably to even begin to define the high tech and energetic live experience of a Jonny Smokes show. Turned loose upon a stage filled with beautiful instruments and modern equipment, Jonny Smokes enthusiastically delivers a high tech one man exhibition as he consistently performs over 150 solo shows every year in the western United States and throughout Europe.

After Dark, February 4 – 7: Playing your favorites from the 60’s through today with lots of 70's hits, this high-energy rock 'n' roll band will get you out of your seat and on your feet! After Dark’s band members have a collective 125 years of performance experience and the group has a continually growing song catalog and a fun-loving following.

Steve Lord, February 8 – 11: A guitarist with dynamic vocals, Steve is a main stage West Coast performer. A man of a thousand songs, Steve presents an evening of oldies, country, pop, blues, jazz, soul and rock 'n' roll.

The Blues Monsters, February 12 – 13: A red-hot rockin' blues band performing a powerfully unique combination of R&B, funk, jazz, and Chicago-style blues – this one is a "don't miss." Whether paying respects to the masters of traditional blues, or rockin' out other tunes, The Blues Monsters get the whole house up and dancing!

George Pickard, February 14 – 17: George is an accomplished performer, believable impressionist, captivating entertainer and successful song writer. He co-wrote What Did You Do with Your Old Forty Fives for Bobby Vinton and backed up many acts from the fifties and sixties including The Shirelles, The Diamonds and The Platters. He was also one of the Kingsmen (Louie, Louie). George has played the Fillmore in San Francisco with acts such as Santana, Big Brother and the Holding Company and Jefferson Airplane.

Decades, February 18 – 20: The electrifying group presents a vibrant and diverse act from Chuck Berry's Johnny B. Goode to Mark Ronson and Bruno Mars Uptown Funk. Decades’ 4-part harmonies and energized rhythm section truly shine when playing hits from the 1950's to today.  The group includes Samantha Francis (keyboard, harmonica, guitar, flute and vocals), Ben Ruttenberg (keyboards, guitar, vocals), Billy DiBono (drums, vocals), Will Watje (guitar, sax, vocals), and Tobias Brooks (bass, guitar, vocals)

Jonathon “JB” Barton, February 21 – 24: In his four decades as an entertainer Jonathan has shared the stage with legends including Chuck Berry and Bo Diddley. His love for a variety of musical styles is apparent in his selection of favorites from Van Morrison, CCR, Hank Williams, Jimmy Buffett, Kenny Chesney, Eagles and many more. Come out and sing along!

Just Us, February 25 – 27: Just Us is a unique group of musicians who decided to blend together the sounds of the Motor City and Oakland, CA to develop "Sweet, Grown & Sexy" sounds - music from the 60’s to the present.  Aladdin handles lead vocal and percussions. He is joined by Les Carter on vocals and drums, Phil Weaver on vocals and guitar and Fred Williams on bass

Bill Wharton, February 28 – March 2: Local artist, Bill Wharton has been entertaining people across the western United States, Alaska and Hawaii for, as he says, “eons.” His smooth, melodic tone comes out in his vast repertoire from old classic country thru modern country, pop to classic rock, blues and jazz. Songs to fall in love to, drown your sorrows with, take you to your happy place or just to shake your groove thang

Three Blind Mice, March 3 - 5: Three blind mice bring their Rock n Roll Party Show to the cabaret lounge with classic rock hit songs from artists such as: Van Halen, ZZ Top, Kiss, Elton John, Queen, The Temptations, The Steve Miller Band, Ozzy Osbourne, The Eagles, Led Zeppelin, The Spinners, The Beatles, Judas Priest and many others! Formed and led by "the singing drummer" Johnny Lust, the Las Vegas based classic rock trio is rounded out by guitarist/lead singer Dominic Ancona and by former Eagles Tribute act DESPERADO bassist and lead singer John Morrison.
