MAIN ATTRACTION: ESME
ESME is an acoustic string band based in West Michigan that blends classical music training with popular music to create a live performance experience that is accessible to students and music lovers of different ages and varied tastes. Our enrichment programs are designed to help students take their exposure to everything from pop to hip-hop, dance, bluegrass, jazz and film music and apply it to their study of classical music. We present a performance style that focuses on player interaction as well as improvisation. By combining these elements with the familiarity of pop music we seek to engage students towards finding new and creative ways of infusing different styles of music with the classical instruments that they have the opportunity to learn in their schools.
It's time to kick off your shoes, let your hair down, and come raise a ruckus in the WakeSnakes Ballroom!

Grab a Montello Meat Market Bourbon-Brown Sugar Sausage or an Aperitivo Grilled Pimento Cheese to complete the evening!
MAIN ATTRACTION: Delilah DeWylde and the Lost Boys
A long time ago, at the dawn of the Atomic Age, a succession of no-good punks and ill-mannered teenagers took the best of American roots music — hard-partying honky tonk country, searing gutbucket blues and lonesome hillbilly twang — and distilled it into a potent moonshine known as rockabilly. This combustible formula, passed down through the generations, forms the heart of the revved-up stylings of Delilah DeWylde and the Lost Boys. Mixing their own self-penned songs with vintage country/honky tonk hits, rockabilly favorites, and surf gems by such artists as Hank Williams Sr., Johnny Cash, Wanda Jackson, Buck Owens, Gene Vincent, and Dick Dale, Delilah and the Lost Boys come out on stage looking and sounding like a step back in time. Dressed to the nines in the tradition of pre-color television, the band thrilled audiences across the Midwest with its spirited performances.
Miss Behave invites you in to the long-lost luxury of her Amber Room... peruse the sparkling silent auction, and then relax a while with some silky cocktails and decadent treats while her velvet voice lulls you into a perfectly starry-eyed haze... Enjoy an Oyster and Shrimp Cocktail bar from Fish Lads, Scrumptious Cupcakes, and Field & Fire Almond Financiers, with appetizer assistance from the Everyday Chef throughout the night!
MAIN ATTRACTION: Ellie Frances
My experience in Theatre covers everything from Opera, Musical Theatre, to Modern Theatre and Imrov. My history with the stage brings a unique perspective and exciting energy when working on film sets. From commercial modeling and acting on film, to educational web series and promotional materials I find art in everything. As a vocalist I have performed with symphonies, big bands and rocks bands. I sing everything from classical, to vintage style swing, to pop favorites of the 60’s/70’s/80’s and current artists. In addition to theatre, film and music I have also been a Singing Telegram performer specializing in impersonations. My favorite and most popular would be Marilyn Monroe.
Don't want to go home after the event? You don't have to! Follow our "Second Line" down the street to Luna where there will be special Margarita flights and Boozy Horchata. Their kitchen will be open late if you're looking for a snack or two. Enjoy the River Rogues Jazz Band playing from 10pm-11pm. What a way to end the night!
