Fairview Stage, 1 & 3 p.m.
Vocal Trash combines street instruments like buckets, trash cans and hubcaps with vocal harmonies to deliver entertainment that the whole family can enjoy. This five-piece band from Texas performs oldies and rock ‘n’ roll with a contemporary beat. This group is often considered a unique blend of the popular drum act “Stomp” with an a cappella vocal style similar to the cast of Glee.
Here Come the Mummies
Fairview Stage, 8 p.m.
This funk group is different from any other and will see to it that they are the “funkiest” show around. The twelve members dress as Egyptian mummies, bear mummy names, claim to have been discovered in the buried ruins of an ancient nightclub and now continue to play “funk from beyond the grave.” They are known for performing R&B/funk tunes such as “Funky Little Baby” and “Dirty Minds.”

Susan Knapp Amphitheater, 8 p.m.
