Aquile, 24-year-old singer/songwriter’s roots stem from Douglas, Wyoming, where the pop-soul artist honed his musical talents before heading west to make it big. Aquile was a contestant on NBC’s hit show, “The Voice” in 2012 where he was a member of “Team Christina”, referencing “The Voice” coach and singer, Christina Aquilera. Aquile and his band will headline the musical line-up for this year’s festival.
Raised in rural Wyoming, Jalan Crossland is one of a very few “alt country” artists who still claims the “country” as home. This anchors the ‘truth is stranger than fiction’ wobble to songs about 21st century rural life. Jalan has been touring both solo and with a band for twenty years. By summer 2011, Jalan had a steady band and has recorded 6 cds. Jalan Crossland and his band are sure to dazzle at the 2013 Fireworks Festival.
On the front of ever- changing music, Another Lost Year’s Clinton Cunanan, Adam Hall, David Whitaker, Lee Norris, and Jason Lovelace from Charlotte, NC, are creating an empire in the Alternative Metal/Hard Rock realm with truth in lyrics and an unimaginable live show that places second to none.
Casper based, Good Morning Tonight, is a 5 piece Pop-Punk band that will take the stage July 4th to kick off the 2013 Fireworks Festival. Good Morning Tonight have been playing together since 2008 with now hundreds of shows under their belt.
