Three-time Grammy-Nominated Songwriter, Keyboardist, and Vocalist for the Rock-n-Roll Hall of Fame “The Steve Miller Band,” and author, Joseph Wooten. He will perform a 90-minute set of his top favorites and offer a tribute to be enjoyed by all.
Nashville, Tennessee Songwriter & Vocal Artist, PJ Black-Klein. P.J. knows first-hand the sacrifices that are made by the Military. Her gratitude for our nation’s heroes has inspired her to write several songs about military life.
Local artist, David Minnihan, from Dubuque, Iowa.
As World Data Systems believes children are our future and that strong communities help provide the foundation for them to fulfill their potential, they sponsor a 15U youth baseball team called “Thunder.” Thunder will play a local team (TBD) as parents and fellow Americans watch the next generation play America’s pastime on the Field where dreams come true!
