Raise Your Glass Pink Tribute Band Artichoke Festival

Raise Your Glass

Raise Your Glass (RYG) is quickly establishing itself as THE definitive P!nk tribute show in the U.S. Based out of Los Angeles, CA, RYG has developed a growing fan base that includes a cross diversity of P!nk aficionados as well as those who are captured by the group’s high-energy performances and quickly become P!nk fans. Because of the multi-generational appeal and pop inclusiveness that defines P!nk’s music, RYG brings a “Perfect Storm” trifecta to any event producer, high-end booking agent or corporate talent agency.

Anthony Aquarius Mystery Artichoke Festival

Woodstock

Sometimes a stroll down Hollywood Boulevard is a step back in time. To 1969, to be exact. It’s that way when Anthony Aquarius plugs in his battery-powered amplifiers, straps his electric guitar on upside down and belts out “Hey Joe” to startled passersby. Aquarius sounds like Jimi Hendrix. He looks like him too — right down to the lanky gait, bushy hair and flamboyantly colored clothes.

Maroon Vibes Artichoke Festival

Maroon Vibes

Hailing as Northern California’s Premier Maroon 5 Tribute Band, Maroon Vibes, will grace the ears of Artichoke Festival attendees. Playing a variety of Maroon 5 hits including “This Love”, “She Will Be Loved”, and “Moves Like Jagger”, Maroon Vibes will have you dancing and singing along for their entire set.
