12pm - 3pm - The Masquerade Ball:
  •  12pm - 1pm - Zachh Cale opens the Ball
Zachh sings songs in a mashup style of pop, classical, soul, jazz and new age. Schooled in classical piano, he later learned to play more by ear, sing in a more soulful manner, and trust his musical "gut."

Now he blends both traditional and popular approaches to composition and performance. The result is a fresh and varied combination of melodies, rhythms, and arrangements which he hopes stimulates both hearts and minds of listeners.

He also writes music for solo piano. Come hear for yourself!
  • 1pm - 2pm - ian Bleac
IAN's performance includes music from both the Jazz and Big Band genres, with much of his repertoire originally published throughout the 1920's, 30's and 40's.

As part of the show, you can expect to hear such classics as Tony Bennet's hit, "I Wanna be Around". You can also hear an occasional bluesy ballad, or a more recent hit that will melt your heart. IAN's tiny dancers, direct from the Royal Ballet, will also delight you, and get your toes tapping.

IAN has an ever increasing repertoire, and his passion is in keeping alive some of the greatest music ever written.

"If you love an authentic vintage sound, a timeless melody, and amazing humor, then this show is for you!"

  • 2pm - 3pm - Heath Elvehjem (Heath Vercher), musician, composer, closes the Ball
Heath began his musical career prior to his teens where his experiments with music creation led him to the discovery of what would be a driving force in his life. It was not until he was around 16 that he gave his first public performance. These first steps were of course not pleasant but Heath kept working and in the not too many years since has turned these beginnings into a blossoming career.

During his formative years, Heath gained some influences from some great performers, notably Jim Brickman, Yanni, David Lanz, Billy Joel, Marc Cohen, and Bruce Hornsby. Though some of Heath's playing style could be attributed to these influences, his style is a combination of New Age and Contemporary musical genres that stands on its own.
