1999 website exceprt:

Soda n' Sounds will present two different sets "Country Music U.S.A."and "Countdown to the Millenium".

The shows will include a cast of five singer/dancers. There will be six shows per day alternating between sets. Each set being approximately 15 minutes in length.

The second set "Count Down to the Millennium" will be an exciting show of sound and visual effects as we count down to the end of the 20th century. Fog machines and chase lights will add to the visual effect.

The show starts with "We’re Headin’ For The Future", an exciting fast-paced song that spells out our destination.

The hit song "Back in Time" from the movie ‘Back to the Future’ launches us back over the last decade with the sound of Hip Hop, Stomp, Rock-A-Pella, the new 40’s swing and a fresh treatment of Prince’s hit song, "1999".

The "Steppin Out" portion of the show will please all audience members, young or old. We begin this portion of the show with traditional music and costumes, but things change quickly as we transform the old "40’s swing into the new techno sound of the ‘90’s and the "Men In Black" look.
