The Guy Brown Band – The Guy Brown Band was created in January of 2017. Guy Brown, a junior at Granstville High School, and Cooper Tolbert, a sophomore at Tooele High School, decided they wanted to use their talents to share their love of music. The Guy Brown Band has performed across the state of Utah to audiences of all ages. They play a wide variety of music from decades gone by, but the one thing all their music has in common is its ability to get toes tapping and people smiling. They are headed to Indianapolis this fall to perform at the National FFA Convention to an audience of more than a million people! Although they are young, Guy and Cooper love sharing their passion for music with those around them.

Chris Peterson – Chris Petersen is a country music singer/songwriter based in Cedar City. Chris is known for his deep smooth voice and original country lyrics. Chris has been performing heavily throughout the west for the past several years and has enjoyed sharing his music for many audiences.
In 2014 Chris was able to open a concert for Collin Raye. This was a moment that changed Chris’ life. After encouragement from Collin Raye, Chris set his sights on pursuing his career as a songwriter and performer. Chris has since been able to open for other notable country musicians including Craig Morgan. In 2016 Chris traveled with his band to Texas to play during the Houston Rodeo at NRG park. In 2017 Chris was selcted as a finalist at the Kerrville Songwriting Competition in, Kerrville, Texas.
As a musician Chris sticks to his country roots. He loves playing traditional country music with influences like George Strait, Merle Haggard, and Chris Ledoux. These influences are also reflected in Chris’ writing. Chris released his first album in 2014 and is set to release a second in 2017. Chris has played all across the west but especially enjoys coming home to Utah to share his music.
Time Cruisers – The band called The Time cruisers formed around 1995 and have played as far north as Jackson Hole Wyoming, as far East as Green River Wyo, as far south as St George and as far west as Lake Tahoe. Many people have passed through the band in the past years, but the current configuration has only been together for about 2 years. The Band specializes in Music of the 50’s 60’s back when we still had hair and could fit into a 30” waist pant size.
Bill Stidd plays the leads and specializes in the West Coast surf rock sound of the Ventures, Dick Dale, and other instrumental bands from that period. Bill also sings lead on the fifties songs. His big musical influences are Elvis Presley, Buddy Holly. Beach Boys. Bill is actually one the 10 people on the planet that thinks the Beatles ruined music. Kendall Jewkes plays the keyboards, he also plays the guitar but since he tunes pianos for a living so we figured he could figure out the keyboard songs. His big musical influences are the Partridge Family, The Monkees, The Cowsills, and The 1910 Fruit Gum company. I think. Rick McKinnon sings lead and harmony plus plays rhythm guitar. Rick has performed at the famous Troubadour in LA. Rick likes most kinds of music, we think.
4H Talent Show – 4-H is more than just cows and cookin’! Come enjoy the talents of youth representing all ages and many 4-H project areas. Youth may perform in any category such as variety, instrumental, vocal and piano. It’s a new group every year.

Now a trio composed of Callie Basset, Millie Johnson and Heather Shurtleff, with Sandra Gale on the piano and CaryLee Zwang at the drums, this group continues to bring great old favorites to fair audiences. Plumbing the last 70 decades for music that is perennially popular, they will be sure to please audiences of all ages.

They feature Kelsea Burton on vocals, Austin Clark on trumpet, Waylon Hadlock on sax, Trevor Walker on keys, Hayden Clark on guitar, Trekker Burt on bass, and Carylee Zwang on drums.
Hey Cedars Square Dance Club – Hey Cedars Square Dance Club has been around since the early 40’s. Square Dancing came about when this country of ours started. People immigrated to our country and with them they brought their countries dancing. Because most of the country was farmland, in the evenings they would gather in a barn. Over time they combined the dancing and square dancing was born. Square dancing is now in every country in the world and it is always called in English everywhere. We dance in the Cedar Senior Center on Wednesday evening and will be starting a beginners class real soon.
