About the Bands: 

B&B All Stars
The B&B All-Stars have been entertaining audiences along the Wasatch front since 2006. Their roots stretch back to Pennsylvania, where their leader, accordionist and vocalist Richard Roginski, regularly performed Cleveland-style polkas and waltzes at Oktoberfests and other events for the diverse ethnic audiences of the east coast. Shortly after Roginski moved to Utah (and consequently experienced fewer opportunities to perform polkas and waltzes), he met drummer Mark Alvord, who received an inquiry about performing at Snowbird’s Oktoberfest, and the B&B All-Stars were born. The B&B All-Stars have performed hundreds of times at Oktoberfest-related public and private events throughout Utah, proudly continuing the rich tradition of Cleveland-style polkas and waltzes. Prost!

Tony Holiday & The Velvetones 
Tony Holiday is an award winning singer and harmonica player based in Memphis, Tennesse. Joined by the Velvetones the group brings blues goodness with a bit of a southern rock flare to every performance leaving the crowd always wanting more after each show.
