This event is more than just a celebration—it's an opportunity to make a difference. Fundraising is vital for the preservation of our historic theatre. On either side of the footlights, those involved, whether on or off the stage, represent a diversity of age, culture, life experience and a strong appreciation of the importance of the arts.

The rapid growth and popularity of 80s Rock Tribute PARAMOUNT is no doubt in part due to the high energy show the band delivers with concert-style performances and also in part due to the fun music they play! PARAMOUNT's fanbase continues to grow with regular shows in multiple Midwest cities and states. Larger venues like KC's Arrowhead Stadium and Wichita's Cotillion Ballroom continue to add PARAMOUNT to their list of live entertainment offerings as sure-fire crowd-pleasers. Festivals are discovering PARAMOUNT's 80s Rock Tribute can be fun for the whole family, and the band's summer events calendar fills faster every year. With Eddie Light on lead vocals, the band plays high energy sing-with-us 80s anthems from Journey, REO Speedwagon, Def Leppard, Poison, Bon Jovi, Guns N Roses, and much more. Traveling with amazing sound and light production, PARAMOUNT delivers a Live Experience deserving of the decade called... "The BIG 80s!"
