Check out some of the fabulous entertainment you will see at this year's event.
The Time of Our Lives Band is a fun and energetic yet classy Tampa Bay-based band. Though classically trained, these musicians have hearts that beat funky, rock-and-roll dance rhythms! All six band members are multi-instrumental, which makes it easy for them to play it all – covering hits from ten minutes or ten decades ago!
Jazz, blues, swing, jive, folk, rock and roll, soul, funk, disco, power ballads and on to today’s hottest club mixes, they’ve got it covered. Great vocals, great musicians, great songs – you’ll have the time of your life with The Time of Our Lives Band!
The TNT Blues Band is a group of four Tampa Bay gentlemen who have been living, loving, and singing the blues for a long time. With an eclectic blend of origins and attitudes, they prove Count Basie’s theory that “there are a lot of ways you can treat the blues, but they will still be blues”.
Whether you like your blues from the Delta, Chicago, Memphis or Detroit, The TNT Blues Band will bring you blues you can use.
The Times Three Trio – light Jazz, played for the fun of it!
Jazz music is an enigma. It’s like abstract art – but it definitely has something to say.
It doesn’t just slap you in the face, you have to let go of your perceptions and let it soak into your brain. It is what it is, and it’s not the same thing every time. The Times Three Trio enjoys playing recognizable, well-loved tunes in a light and happy way. Dancing encouraged!
ELLA JET is a 14 year old singer-songwriter with a smile that could melt the North Pole.
She plays acoustic guitar and sings with a laid back vibe that showcases her unique and charming style of Indie-acoustic-pop that delights audiences.
Audience members at VegFest can expect to hear a Beatles cover in Ella’s style, and see Ella’s new puppy, Oliver, at the show.

The Tampa Bay Children’s Chorus was established in 1989 to provide children of the Tampa Bay area outstanding enrichment opportunities and training in the choral art.

They have made several concert tours to major European and North American cities, including Paris, Vienna, London, New York, and Washington, D.C., and have sung in such venues as the Washington National Cathedral, Coventry Cathedral and Carnegie Hall. The chorus tours annually and has participated in major choral festivals in Toronto, Chicago, Vancouver, Niagara, New Orleans, and New York City. The group represents the economic and social diversity that exists in the Tampa Bay area. The singers will make a concert tour to Quebec, Canada, in June 2013.
