You can’t help but get locked in with the musical ride; their energy and stage presence commands interaction and creates a true party atmosphere. The Red Carpet Crashers always put on a show.

The Reaganomics (8pm – midnight)

If rock music of the seventies was a statement of excess and overproduction, eighties rock only furthered those excesses. The best example of this musical trend was eighties New Wave, which was essentially modernized seventies Disco. New Wave, however, encompassed a wider range than the dance music that proceeded it. The Fixx and Duran Duran were prime examples of groups that had wide appeal and received substantial airplay on MTV.

The Reaganomics are the midwest's most exciting 80's dance and party band. Based in Columbus, Ohio, The Reaganomics have become the area's most electrifying eighties show. With the release of their latest CD, "Ten", The Reaganomics have truly become the "must-see" act in the region.
