Amplified Life Showcase #01

The Lineup of performers is just ridiculous at this point.  We are going to have so much talent in one historic venue at one special time that I guarantee a good time!  I had to think twice about including all of the performers accolades because it started to make the page look cluttered.  But I say that’s a good thing.  If you don’t want to strain your eyes sorting through the mountain of accomplishments, take a quick glance at the flyer.

Here are the details for our first Showcase starting with our special guest hosts in alphabetical order:
