The Late Sixties, Psychedelic Music, Peace, and Love.

Do you remember the Woodstock era? It was a period of musical and creative energy that has never been equaled before or since! If you are too young to remember that magical time, you can now be transported back there instantly with the one and only “Magic Bus”

Come and take a psychedelic ride with us. Let Magic Bus re-create the atmosphere for you! Their incredible musical abilities and authentic look will transcend the modern and jet you back to the Haight-Ashbury District of San Francisco in 1967.  It was a time of true Rock and Roll as it was meant to be!

Horizon Motown

 

 

Horizon is no ordinary "Motown" show. Handpicked for their dancing ability, their humor, Horizon is a perfectly polished theatrical ensemble, complete with costuming and world-class instrumental ensemble. 

Their breathtaking a cappella singing, their supercharged dance routines, their engaging wit, and their obvious love for the music all combine to catapult Motown back to its glory days. Whether Horizon is singing the music of the Temptations, The Spinners, Smokey Robinson, Marvin Gaye or Earth, Wind & Fire, it's as if the original group has stopped by for a quick visit.

The Gordon Lightfoot Tribute

 

 

See Mike Fornes as Gordon Lightfoot.  His portrayal of Gordon Lightfoot is simply an honest effort to entertain with an accurate representation of a Lightfoot concert. Mike plays the role of “Gord” in first person, yet avoids saying “I” or “me” in his storytelling of the songs and the circumstances of how they were written. His tireless research and personal interaction with Lightfoot have lead to accurate mannerisms, speaking patterns, clothing, and of course identical guitars used by the Canadian icon on stage.
