Brescia University rocks the Labor Day Weekend dance party as they welcome you and their class of 2016 to the riverfront for a Brescia Bash Party tonight. INSULATED is tonight’s main stage band. Earlier this season they packed the courtyard with a standing room only performance followed by a huge campaign to bring them to the main stage! Your wish is Brescia’s command as we welcome the hottest band in the region to kick off the three-day holiday weekend. It all began with a boy playing drums in an “INSULATED” storage room in his parent’s garage to four high school friends playing weekend shows. The band INSULATED includes four Kentucky boys; Coty Burton, Drew Aud, D.J. Brown and Brandon Crawford. INSULATED has been playing gigs in the Kentucky/Indiana area since 2007. With music influences from Eric Clapton, ZZ Top to Jason Aldean. They can rock over 100 cover songs and a few of their own. SPECIAL OPENING ACT: Annabelle Watts is an 11-year-old all-star. She sings, dances, plays fiddle and guitar! Annabelle won First Place earlier this month at the Indiana State Fair and will perform live from 6pm to 6:25 tonight on the patio stage! The Rockin’ weekend begins at 6:30 as Insulated steps up to the main stage!
