We set our sail to your favorite bass-heavy tunes, including but not limited to Usher, Ke$ha, Pitbull, and Lady Gaga. Our ship comes fully equipped with a personalized light show, scenery, costumes, characters, and one heck of a good time. If you were looking for a place to party, you got off at the right stop!

 The Gilligans is made up of experienced performers from different musical adventures that came together to create an area “super group.” A typical show has live musicians playing over our drummer’s rhythmic beat to keep the party bumping from beginning to end. With both a male and female vocalist, we are able to cover a wide variety of artists that are appealing to any passengers at all venues.

 Not only does oceanic magic happen on stage, we also come prepared with goodies to make your party poppin’. When The Gilligans dock at any enterprise, we bring guaranteed festivities. Who doesn’t love a luau at all times of the year? We have tiki torches, leis, and the special Gilligans drink on demand! We will provide our surrounding settings with the recipe for this tasty specialty and you are able to promote it as you so choose.

Infinity~9pm

“Classic to Current: The Ultimate Rock Experience” Formed in 1985, Infinity grew from being not only a Journey Tribute band, but one of the top drawing cover – bands in the Midwest. Two-plus decades rocking the hundreds of local music festivals lighting up the Chicago suburbs each summer have put Infinity in front of hundreds of thousands of fans. Consequently, the band has built an incredible following, making them the Top most successful cover bands in the nation’s third-largest metropolis. Infinity continues to break attendance records at Clubs and Festivals across Chicago and the Midwest.
 

More importantly, Infinity maintains the intangible ability to include the audience and make them feel as if they are part of the show. A quote from the Lead singer Bob, “This is not our show, it’s yours.” Infinity enjoys thousands of fans young and young at heart, who sing along and become the chorus to their music. This is the difference between performers and genuine entertainers. Perhaps this is the reason for the perpetual following and return to area Festivals and Clubs across the Midwest year after year after year.
