Headlining Performers

Ben Harper & The Innocent Criminals came together in 1999 to record the album Born to Shine which showcased Harper's rock side, and he turns to the group whenever he wants to underscore his funky, fuzz-guitar talents. They have played together off and on over the years and in 2016 they collaborated once again on Call It What It Is. Ben Harper is a three-time GRAMMY® Award winner and is known for his skills on the guitar, along with vocals and live performances and his eclectic mix of blues, folk, soul, reggae and rock.

Opening the show is Chicago-based Twin Peaks. As their fans know well, these dudes like to rock and most certainly love to roll. Band members include Cadien Lake James (vocals, guitar), Clay Frankel (vocals, guitar), Jack Dolan (vocals, bass), Colin Croom (keys, vocals, guitar) and Connor Brodner (drums).
