Jon Bauman and his alter ego “Bowzer” have ruled the radio and television airways and the silver screen since 1969, as the leader of the musical group Sha Na Na. The group’s TV series was the number one syndicated program in America and was also broadcasted in 32 countries. For many, the band will forever be known for singing “Born to Hand Jive” in the classic movie musical “Grease.” With over 150 solo performances to Bauman’s credit, this exciting performer now can be seen as the host in “Bowzer’s Rock n’ Roll Party,” which he co-executive produced and wrote.
The two original vocalists of Shadows of the Knight, Jimy Sohns and veteran bassist Lee Brovitz, ruled the music charts in 1966 with their song “Gloria.” Hailed as “the American Rolling Stones” the record sold over 8 million copies and in 2001 was voted as the number 81 Best Rock Song on Rock n’ Roll by VH-1 Music Television. In 2006 with the release of their latest album “A Knight to Remember,” the group headlined the Rolling Rock & Roll show for Little Steven’s Underground Garage. Re-claiming the title of America’s premiere party band, Shadows of the Knight continues to rock even 40 years after their debut.
In the 1960’s and 1970’s one in four youths were a Bay City Rollers fan, with England’s New Musical Express calling the group “a cult of vast proportions.” With the single “Saturday Night” the group had their first U.S. chart topper. Ian Mitchell joined the group as a guitarist in the 1970’s, and today continues the band’s legacy by performing all their hits the way he thinks they deserve to be preformed –  “power pop, pure power pop.”

Formed in San Jose, CA, Count Five scored a top 5 hit single in 1966 with “Psychotic Reaction.” The tune, which is described as “Yardbirds-inspired psychedelic-punk,” drew the band, which wore Dracula-style capes to their early performances, to the top of the charts. Though the band disbanded in 1969 to stay in school, today part of the original line-up still performs their classic hit.
Performing in the Festival Arena is Izon Eden. The group, consisting of members Dayton and Patty Borders, sing jazz and pop songs from the 1960’s through contemporary hits.
