Help us celebrate summer in White Oak. This should will be another fun weekend for all. We have three great bands and other entertainment. There will be our usual offering and some other new additions this year...
An evening with Abe's Lincoln is unlike any other cover band you'll ever experience. We are passionate musicians who pride ourselves in covering familiar hit songs with jaw-dropping vocal and instrumental accuracy. But unlike other cover bands, our shows engage both the ears and the eyes. Using sophisticated imaging equipment and time sequencing technology, we project the music videos for our songs in perfect sync with the performance, doubling the rush of nostalgia and memories that accompany your favorite songs from the past.
Over 12 years ago, six long time seasoned musicians who love to rock it out, joined forces to bring some amazing music to Cincinnati. Fronted by the amazing lead vocals of Pam Grote, Pandora Effect has established itself as a great live band that features expert musicianship and killer lead and backing vocals. We expertly recreate some of the greatest music ever recorded from Janis, The Who, Stevie Wonder, Journey, Triumph, Heart, Scorpions, Yes, Blondie, Pink, Pat Benatar and many, many more. Pandora Effect creates fun and excitement that will keep you rocking and on your feet all night long!
They have been providing high quality musical entertainment for 30+ years! The band was formed in 1987 by a group of Cincinnati based musicians determined to take their public and private performances to a higher level with their own unique vocal blend and dedication to musical excellence. Also, by playing very well-known pop and rock tunes The Remains are specialists when it comes to getting a crowd singing along and dancing at their performances.
