Catalina Wine Mixer® 2018
Saturday, September 22
Dan Finnerty, the band’s namesake, never planned on fronting a group that specializes in medleys of '80s classics. Through word of mouth, many celebrities began attending their shows, resulting in the group being cast in The Hangover, The Wedding Planner, and Old School, where they unleashed an expletive-heavy rendition of Bonnie Tyler's "Total Eclipse of the Heart." The Dan Band released their full-length debut, Dan Band Live, in April 2005.
SIDE DEAL is a band of four friends from various performing and touring bands who have come back to their hometown of Newport Beach to rekindle a love of music. Band Members: Charlie Colin (Founding Member of TRAIN), Stan Frazier (Founding Member of SUGAR RAY), and Joel & Scott Owen (Founding Members of PawnShop kings).
Based out of Orange County, California, this high-energy, multi-faceted party band has played with some of the biggest names in rock, pop, rap, country and hip-hop, including Lynyrd Skynyrd, Pat Benatar, Florida Georgia Line, Macklemore, Cheap Trick, Poison, Pitbull, 50 Cent and more. They’ve also performed for a number of dignitaries and athletes, including U.S. Senators, congressmen and Supreme Court Justices, Peyton Manning, Aaron Rodgers and many others.
Singer/Songwriter Kelly Fitzgerald has toured all over the world as a solo and ensemble performer. She and her band have shared stages with artists such as John Hiatt, Shelby Lynn, Nancy Griffith, Cheap Trick, Eddie Money, The Gin Blossoms, Vonda Shepard, The BoDeans and others.
Ryan and Kai are brothers who grew up in Southern California playing and singing a variety of music. Whether sitting in a small group of friends playing acoustic melodies, or getting together with other band members and playing nightclubs and event stages, they are always crowd-pleasers.

James Moody will be performing at the VIP Spa Dinner at Island Spa Catalina. The Wheeland Brothers will be performing outside of the Catalina Casino Theatre prior to the Step Brothers screening. DJ K Fresh will be kicking the after party into high gear on Friday at Descanso Beach Club and spinning tunes throughout the day on Saturday.
The Wheeland Brothers combine fun, catchy melody and lyrics with the cool attitude and positive energy of reggae, as well as the down-to-earth, organic honesty of acoustic rock, ukulele lullabies, and flip flop hip hop. Sunshine music inspired by waves, hangin’ with friends, and dreaming of distant shores.
Guitarist James Moody, who calls Catalina Island home, has played live shows and recording sessions around Los Angeles. He is a frequent performer around Catalina Island.
From the radio waves to the clubs, K Fresh is one of LA's most brilliant, and diverse DJs in the industry. He is the go-to-guy for many in the industry simply, because he knows exactly what the crowd wants.
