David J. Henning is a singer/songwriter based out of Denver. Originally from northwest Pennsylvania, he began focusing on songwriting in 2014 and has quickly gained recognition in Denver. With growing accomplishments, including recognition from the Westword and COMBO (Colorado Music Business Organization), David has been in demand as a guitar player and vocalist providing featured work on many growing Denver, Los Angeles and Nashville artists' albums.

A stylistically unique horn band, the members of Groove 'N Motion have been singing, performing, and playing in sync as if they’d been together their entire musical careers. Performing at a variety of venues with their musical energy, Groove 'N Motion will have you singing along to all your favorite songs from the 70s, 80s and 90s, as well as to today's current hits!

Headlining Summerfest will be nationally-touring Neil Diamond tribute band Super Diamond. Super Diamond’s success in America is unprecedented for a tribute band. With a nod from the man himself, Neil, Super Diamond has been embraced by the long-time Neil Diamond fan base and also found huge popularity in the hip rock clubs of America.
