Delivering a fresh sound to favorite songs, Capernaum is a remarkably talented group of musicians out of Northwest Indiana. Their high energy shows cover a variety from today’s most popular hits to modern, classic and country rock. The front girl, LeAnn Stutler, astonishes crowds with a voice that is well beyond her years. Exceptionally polished for such a young band, the musical savvy of this group adeptly spins a new feel to familiar tunes.

Bowman & Rose is an exciting jazz/pop duo currently making the rounds in the Chicago and NWI music scene.

Audiences thrill to the sultry vocal styling of Jodi Rosenthal Pesich as she seamlessly intertwines with the rich sound of Dennis Bowman’s guitar. Whether you are sipping wine at a restaurant or dancing at an outdoor festival, Bowman & Rose has you covered, sharing their true passion for music with you!

3-5pm – Next2sday

This rock-n-roll cover band based out of Orland Park, IL has been rocking since around 2007, with a few different members and home bases along the way. Many of the members of N2D are childhood friends—in fact, the first N2D jam session began as an experiment to “get the ol’ band back together.” The group shares a love for classic rock and enjoys infusing their sets with newer rock songs to keep things interesting. Their song list covers more than four decades of music, including hits from U2, The Beatles, Jefferson Airplane, the Gin Blossoms, The Ramones and KT Tunstall.

5-7pm – Nicole Jamrose

You may recall Nicole Jamrose as the last woman standing after the 2006 season of the USA Network show Nashville Star. A viewer base of more than 3 million fans voted her third in the competition. Nicole has that voice that draws everyone in, it has been called the perfect mix of whiskey and honey. After the show Nicole returned to her hometown in Northwest Indiana and her roots of rock, pop, soul and country music playing hits from the 70s, 80s, 90s and today.

6pm - Marriage Mill Celebration and Renewal of Marriage Vows

East side of the Crown Point Courthouse

Be it rhythm & blues, classic and current rock, reggae, and country, the Muddsharks unique repertoire and sheer energy contribute to their ever-growing popularity.

Saturday, June 21, 11am-10pm

11am-9:30pm - Beer Garden

11am-1pm – Dirtymac

With an average musical history of 35 years, Dirtymac has played stages north to south. From touring with 1964, the premier Beatles cover band to sharing the stage with Chicago bands such as Off Broadway, you name it, we have played it! From the 60's British invasion, the 70's during the classic rock and blues era, through the 80's and 90's with Alternative Rock onto the present.

1-3pm – John Fister

With a variety of musical influence ranging from classical choral pieces to jazz saxophone, John Fister began his songwriting career at 16, picking up the guitar as a means to achieve this end. A decade later, he has honed his writing skills, appealing to light rock, folk and pop listeners alike. Likened to John Mayer and James Taylor, John’s intricate guitar work perfectly frames catchy melodies and lyrics that are sure to get stuck in your head. He currently performs solo, but lacks no depth thanks to his use of looping to layer vocals, percussion and guitar.

3-5pm – Little Johnny Band

Little Johnny is regarded as one of the hardest working Blues Artist in Chicago by playing over 200 nights a year. It is his "passion" for the music and his fans that drives him. Johnny has paid his dues by backing and playing with some of the Best in Chicago Blues. He always plays to the crowd. It is his heartfelt vocals whether on his own original music or his unique cover of a classic rock or blues tune, that keeps the crowd in the palm of his hands.

5-7pm – Tim & Pete Felus

7:30-10:30pm – Alien Syndicate

A collection of seasoned players, drawing from the many genres and aspects of Guitar driven music, Alien Syndicate is a 4-piece band comprised of members of national touring act Marrakesh Express.
