Headlining the festival will be the talented Sugar Ray. The band formed in 1992 and, after originally calling themselves The Shrinky Dinks, struck stardom in 1997 with their hit “Fly.” The hit was a sensation on radio stations across the country and helped their album “Floored” achieve double platinum status. Sugar Ray followed this success in 1999 with the hits “Every Morning,” which reached #3 on the Billboard charts and “Someday,” which rose to #7 on the charts. They later released the popular “When It’s Over.”
Also taking the stage will be the ever-popular Smashmouth. The band was a national sensation when it hit the charts in 1997 with their album “Fush Yu Mang” that included the hit “Walking on the Sun” and followed in 1999 with the hit “All Star” that was played in such popular movies as “Shrek” and “Rat Race.” The band also produced popular cover songs from the classic bands The Monkees and The Beatles, including “I’m a Believer” and “Getting Better.”
Rounding out this all star line-up will be the Spin Doctors. The band shot onto the national music scene in 1991 with their debut album “Pocket Full of Kryptonite,” which went to triple platinum. This album included the smash hits “Little Miss Can’t Be Wrong” and “Two Princes.” The also released a cover of Creedence Clearwater classic “Have You Ever Seen the Rain” that was featured on the multi-platinum soundtrack for the movie “Philadelphia.”
