3 Piece Revival

Main Stage (Vine Street Village)

3 Piece Revival is one of Cincinnati’s most talented, entertaining and unique cover bands. What started off as a fun “side project” for members of two of the region’s biggest bands turned into a full-time project for both, a project that has taken the area and local music lovers by storm!

Ben Levin

Picnic Pavilion

At only 23 years old, Ben Levin is already making his mark as a blues pianist, vocalist, and songwriter. Ben has been nominated for a Blues Music Award and two Blues Blast Magazine Awards. Based in Cincinnati, OH, Ben has been playing 100 shows a year since he was 15 years old, embracing the authentic sound of his heroes such as Professor Longhair, Pinetop Perkins, Otis Spann, and Ray Charles.

The Pickin’ Pear

The Grove

Martini and Leon Elam create an original modern sound on two traditional instruments. Together the Pickin’ Pear take the banjo and ukulele down the road of folk, rock, and bluegrass.  Sometimes the ukulele will launch you straight into outer space! A blend of top-notch songwriting and improvisational jamming makes each performance exciting and new. The Pickin’ Pear are happy to bring their organic and all-natural blend of folk ‘n’ roll to stages across the U.S.
