Dogs of Society – The Ultimate Elton Rock Tribute – brought to you by Witham Health Services. Dogs of Society rocks the spot-on sounds of classic ‘70s Elton, with all the heat of the original vinyl, in an ALL-LIVE rock concert experience. You’ll never be this close to Elton. . . but you’ll think you are when you see and hear Dogs of Society – The Ultimate Elton Rock Tribute. Driven by the “spot-on” vocals of Elton Juan (John Gore). The Dogs’ high-energy show delivers a rockin’ musical experience more faithful to the spirit of the classic, early Elton John recordings, rather than a flamboyant imitation. Inspired by Elton from the earliest years, John Gore formed Dogs of Society with the idea that Elton’s songs should be the star of the show, from smash hits like Bennie and the Jets, Tiny Dancer and Crocodile Rock to deeper cuts like Funeral for a Friend, Madman Across the Water, All the Girls Love Alice, Mona Lisa & Mad Hatters and many, many more.

State Line Drive – brought to you by Witham Health Services. State Line Drive was formed when twin brothers Mason and Micah Marrs from Missouri joined forces with brothers Joel and Jordan Mills from Kansas. They have been traveling across the Midwest since. In early 2015 they released their first country project, Stay Green, with Seedhouse Records in Nashville, TN. The Stay Green Tour took them to over 40 towns in 6 different states in the summer of 2015. The following year they released their second project with Seedhouse Records, Curshin on You, and spent the next summer on the road with the Crushin on You Tour. They’ve had a very busy 2017 on the Get Away Tour, performing at 60 different events. They have had the privilege of opening for many national acts such as Billy Currington, Scotty McCreery, Parmalee, Gloriana, Mark Chesnutt, Keith Anderson, William Michael Morgan and more. They have appeared on several Kansas City radio and television shows and have sung the National Anthem before several Kansas City sporting events. While country music makes up the heart of their set, they throw in a great mix of pop and rock from the 80’s to today as well. Their tight harmonies, high energy show and young image make them a hit with audiences of all ages.
