Brian Vogan
Brian Vogan & His Good Buddies, Firework Stage
An innovative Seattle Kindie band featuring creative, fun and downright danceable music for children and their parents. Brian and his Good Buddies have performed all around the Seattle area and the northwest for nearly a decade. Seattle children's musician, Brian Vogan, writes engaging and creative songs for the whole family. As an early childhood music teacher, Vogan works with preschool age children throughout Seattle and performs regularly with his band ‘The Good Buddies'. The songs he crafts are inspired by the interests and ideas of his students and the result is a foot stomping great time for music lovers of any age!

7:30 - 8:00 pm
Uncle Stinky
Uncle Stinky’s Magic Show, Fireworks Stage grassy area
Long time, favorite Summer Celebration magic vendor, Uncle Stinky (aka Jonathan Docter) is much more than just a magic shop. Uncle Stinky is a professional musician who performs for camps, fairs, private events and stage shows. This year, we are thrilled to have Uncle Stinky perform a magic show for us in addition to hosting his magic shop at both the main festival and fireworks celebration at Luther Burbank Park. Everyone has that “trickster uncle” who does gags, right? Uncle Stinky has a special ability to teach tricks to his audience after fooling them himself. He is always prepared, carrying tricks for all ages at prices that beat a typical magic shop. Visit his booth to learn hands on tricks and then watch his show to see how it is done by a professional magician!

8:00 - 10:15 pm
Oncore, Fireworks Stage
Sponsored by the Mercer Island Arts Council. With the hottest players from New York, Chicago, Detroit, Washington, California, Hawaii, and Alabama...Summer Celebration brings you a fantastic performance by Oncore! MESMERIZING, Energizing, & Moving Audiences All Over the WORLD with GOOD TIMES…Oncore provides a full variety of music, high energy and an interactive experience, with an emphasis on dancing with over 500 songs in their repertoire! Oncore believes that a party should be for the people. They aim to please. As a totally LIVE band (with no backing pre-recorded tracks), they complete the show through their dynamic and spontaneous ability to READ-&-PLAY-TO-THE-CROWD, an art form in itself. The effect: the band and the crowd become one amazing experience! Oncore understands and practices this concept by playing to the crowd’s desires.
