Sounds Unlimited

Sounds Unlimited Entertainment was built on the idea of a full-service entertainment business whose mission is to personalize events to create unforgettable memories. Entertainment is one of the key pieces to any event. We make sure our events are ones that everyone remembers and talks about for years to come. It’s taken great training and long-term experience to become the best entertainment team in the Northland!

Big Wave Dave & The Ripples

A Duluth, MN-based band comprised of a singer, rhythm section, and a horn section playing funk/soul/blues/rock music to get people movin' their feet.  We do covers and originals,  play in bars, outdoors, private events, and even in sub-zero temperatures from time to time!

Laura Velvet

Laura Velvet features a unique blend of fresh, young vocal talent and versatile, experienced musicians. Through performances that are as much time travel as music events, Laura Velvet wows audiences with sultry tunes from torch singers of the 1960s as well as danceable hits of quintessential Motown girl groups and modern acts.




The Bluebird Foundation

A percentage of the proceeds from this event go to the Bluebird Foundation, Supporting Youth in the Arts. The bluebird has long been a cultural symbol of happiness. For area 9-12 grade students involved in the performing arts, the bluebird has taken on even more significance as the Bluebird Foundation helps them pursue their dreams in theater, dance, vocal, and instrumental music. The Bluebird Foundation, a 501 (c)(3), has a mission statement “To be an advocate for area youth in the performing arts and to create awareness of the power of the arts to enhance self-esteem, increase understanding of others, and improve academic performance. The Bluebird Foundation has many short and long-term goals in their arts advocacy. Scholarships will be awarded annually in May and November. To date over $40,000 has been awarded.
