| The Magic of Brian Ledbetter
and his Dazaling Deceptions
|Brian Ledbetter's interest in magic was sparked at only three years old! He watched the Wizard of Oz, and everything about this classic film seemed magical to him - witches melting into the floor, flying monkeys, and dancing scarecrows! He got his start in showbiz by working in the theatre. He was cast in his first role at only 8 years old, and over the next decade, was in nearly two dozen plays, and is credited with several lead and title roles. At only 12 years old, he began performing professionally at birthday parties. Most of his audiences weren't much younger than he was! At only 17 years old, the Society of American Magicians, one of the largest magic organizations in the world, named him "Star of Tomorrow." His act has grown and developed over the years and can be seen regularly at fairs, casinos, corporate events, theme parks, and in theatres all over the country.

Banshee is a 4-piece classic rock
band with Lynn Sorensen on bass and vocals. Lynn Sorensen
has been the bassist for Bad Company. After a 10-year
hiatus, the three surviving original members, Paul Rodgers,
Mick Ralphs and Simon Kirke reunited along with Lynn
on bass and Howard Leese on guitar, performed at Miami's
Hardrock Arena on 08/08/08. Lynn toured with Bad Company
in 2009 and 2010 with dates in the US, UK, Canada and
Japan. On July 28, 2011, a DVD of Bad Company's Wembley
Arena performance with Lynn on bass went on sale worldwide.

Spike and the Impalers (with former morning show hosts
Bob Rivers and Spike O'Neill). Lynn is also band leader,
bassist, lead vocalist and electric violinist of the
Seattle club band Magic Bus and many other West Coast
At 6’6” he’s not only heads
and shoulders above his
classroom of kids, but this self-taught singer/writer/picker is tertainers throughout the
Pacific Northwest and beyond. The “Math Teacher by
day, Country Entertainer by night” isn’t a tale often
told in media circles. How do you go from a week on
tour with Blake Shelton, Luke Bryan or Dierks Bentley
to teaching trigonometry and pre-calculus? There’s only
one guy who would know the answer to that question.
Chance is the epitome of a country song… struggling to
make a dream come true while raising a family and working
to pay the bills. This West Coast underdog is out to
prove country isn’t only a “Nashville thang.” Chance
was the winner of CMT’s Music City Madness contest.
Voters nationwide propel Chance McKinney and his
self-penned song “Be Real” to victory with over ONE
MILLION VOTES in the final round alone! Since his Music
City Madness win, who hasn’t he opened for? Multiple
dates with: Blake Shelton, Luke Bryan, Dierks Bentley
and Dwight Yoakam. Other dates with: Alan Jackson,
Kenny Rogers, Jamie O’Neal, Grand Funk Railroad, Pat
Green, CCR, .38 Special, Lynyrd Skynyrd, John Rich,
Sebastian Bach, Gloriana, David Nail, Sunny Sweeney,
Eden’s Edge, Steve Azar, Phil Vassar and Little Big
Town. “Chance has the ability to reach out and
touch whoever is around him. I’ve watched him do it with
his students, his peers, and his audiences. You can’t
help but to cheer him on, because you know this guy IS
real…and he’s going places.” Brian Calvert, KOMOABC,
will perform before the
Aquafest Fireworks Show
