Opening Acts


Root Mod

Root Mod is a St. Louis-based R&B band capable of shifting from soul and funk to hip-hop, and jazz. They're fronted by the electric songstress, Bianca Fitzpatrick. Established by their highly energized live show, the group has a handful of independent releases of songs like “Love Language”,“Perish” and “Let Love Live” featuring artist, MC, Gregory Fitzpatrick Jr. formerly known as Ithinkitsbbbp. The group has performed their original act at many concerts, festivals and events private and public such as the Official 2020 NHL All-Star Game Afterparty, Enjoy Illinois 300 NASCAR Cup Series, Whitaker Festival, Q in the Lou, Music at the Intersection, STL Fest, Fair Saint Louis, Cardinals Care Redbird Rookies Jazz and Blues Program, and many more. The band took shape in the summer of 2017 after siblings Daniel Fitzpatrick II, Bianca Fitzpatrick, and their cousins Greg Fitzpatrick (Ithinkitsbbp) and Thomas Paden, along with a friend and fellow musician Peter Plank (Heartcave) decided to meet up to play, arrange and write songs in the basement of the parents of Bianca and Daniel. What started as a casual project infusing their own unique personalities into upbeat covers, immediately resulted in the band setting their focus on producing and writing original content. The group’s founders are primarily all family members and come from a rich musical heritage. This musical heritage is what motivated the group to embark on their collective musical journey together.

Tommy DeCarlo

Tommy DeCarlo is the singer of the band Boston and has performed on every tour since 2008. An evening of classic rock hits from the ’70s and ’80s with a top band of touring professionals featuring August Zadra and Jimmy Leahey of the Dennis DeYoung Band.

Dazed N Confused STL

Founded by Army Veterans Rusty Ezzell and Dustin Row. Dazed packs a heavy, high-energy punch of rock n roll that you won’t soon forget. Guitarists Mike Mattingly and Matt Diekemper perfectly blend heavy 70’s crunch with bright melodic solos. Andy Goodwin on bass supplies the rhythmic low end to compliment the thundering drums from Dustin Row and the iconic rock voice of Rusty Ezzell.
