Billy SloanBilly Sloan's voice range goes from floor to heaven and nothing is out of his comfort zone when it comes to his singing. This amazing performer insists that 90% of the music he performs with his band is "real country", something that is hard to find in the Northern parts of the United States. If you are a true country fan, then you are in for a real treat. Billy and his band will perform cover songs and add their own twist to them.

The fireworks display will be over 15 minutes long (making it the third largest in the State of Michigan) and will be choreographed to Patriotic Music along with some pop, rock & country.
