Performing on both Friday, August 11 and Saturday, August 12 is singer, songwriter and guitarist Dan Vega. His smooth vocals and unique blend of contemporary and blues-tinged guitar never fail to put audiences at ease.

With years of classical and jazz saxophone training and performance, Vega began his musical career as a guitarist in the Buffalo, NY and Austin, TX blues scenes. He has also been a featured performer aboard cruise ships across the Caribbean.

On Thursday, August 10, the duo “Diversity” creates a party-like atmosphere on the patio from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m.  With spunk and grit, they lighten things up by performing the best of Motown, jazz, country, reggae and contemporary music. Tim Claybon and Rene’e Rice of Diversity play something for everyone, and make it easy to have a good time.
