Soda n’ Sounds will present two different sets "Wired for Sound" and "Rock the House".

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 first set "Wired For Sound" will be a highly-choreographed contemporary collage of hits from the stars who are currently making a huge impact on the record charts…and wildly beating hearts everywhere! Slickly-polished high-energy maneuvers, combined with tight harmonies, impressive lead-vocals, and coordinated outfits that say NOW with a capital "N" and SASS with a capital "S". For the girls: basic black bodysuits with slick black slacks trimmed and belted in rhinestones. The guys compliment the girls in coordinating jackets ala Backstreet Boys, adding up to a fun, functional and very happening look.

The crowd will be on their feet from the beginning with a whirling DJ mix featuring original trax from the Backstreet Boys: "I Want It That Way", "Larger Than Life", and "Don’t Want You Back"; followed by N’Sync’s "Bye-Bye-Bye", "Tearin Up My Heart", "God Must Have Spent a Little More Time on You"; and 98 Degrees hearting up the place with "Hardest Thing", "Give Me Just One Night", "My Everything", and more.

The high-tech set pulsates with sparkling metallic energy, using special lighting and 3D geometric holographic effects, creating a mysterious but inviting futuristic flavor. And with lightening-fast changes, in keeping with the seamless pace of this show, the girls can swap their slacks for skirts or dresses, and the guys can slip into matching vests, jackets and shirts; accented with vibrant colors and textures to provide exciting unique looks from scene to scene.

A Latin segment is punctuated with plenty of hot salsa by our favorite stars from south-of-the-border: First up are up-jumpin’, swoon-inducin’ versions of Ricky Martin’s newest offer; followed by Santana’s latest, "Maria, Maria", "Supernatural" and their timeless "Black Magic Woman" and "Oye Como Va"; not to be outdone by Marc Anthony favorites: "I Need To Know", and "My Baby You".

Next it’s high-gloss futurama-so spinkle on some extra glitter’ cause here comes Brittney Spears singing "Oops I did It Again", "Baby One More Time", followed by Christine Aguilera favorites: "Genie In a Bottle" and "So Emotional"; then it’s Jennifer Lopez purring "Feeling So Good", and " Waiting For Tonight". And while we’re in the girly groove, let’s kick up our heels with country queen Shania Twain to: "That Don’t Impress Me Much", "Don’t Be Stupid" and "Man, I Feel Like a Woman". Finally we end the set with that ageless diva of pop/rock, our beloved Cher, singing "Believe" and "If I Could Turn Back Time".

A SHOCKER of a show: turbo-charged with special effects, electrifying acoustics, and super-powered performers. WIRED FOR SOUND…high-voltage entertainment at it’s best.

Picture platform shoes and peace signs, bell bottoms and the Brady Bunch and you’ve got the right idea for the second set "Rock The House!". Baby Boomers will roar as they reminisce, and their kids will groove to this way-cool retro review! This hot, hightly-caffeinated show promise to boil over into a giant sing-along as fans young and old are irresistibly drawn to belt out those familiar hits from Chicago, Blood Sweat and Tears, Elton John, Billy Joel, The Bee-Gees, Three Dog Night, and more. Old standards like Celebrate, Crocodile Rock, The power of Love, Jump, Fame, Another One Bites the Dust, Philadelphia Freedom, and on and on. After we "Get Down Tonight" with K.C. and The Sunshine Band, we will salute some of our favorite divas’ Cher, Madonna, Cyndi Lauper, The Pointer Sisters, and Paula Abdul. And we can’t forget those two SNL cult figures in dark suits, fedoras and signature sun glasses – The Blues Brothers favor us with a medley of their classics; Soul Man, Rubber Biscuit, Flip, Flop, and Fly, and others.

There’s much more to come as big "TV screens" take over center stage revealing some of our best loved sitcoms of the 70’s and 80’s. Why, could it be Laverne and Shirley popping right out of that television set?! Turn the channel and we find ourselves singing along again t our favorite TV theme songs as we watch those timeless characters from All in the Family, Three’s Company, Movin’ On Up, the Adams’ Family, and of course our beloved Brady Bunch!

The grand finale of this fast-paced production is like that last fireworks encore on the Fourth of July. Just when you think you’ve run out of "oooooh’s and aaaaah’s" your senses are bombarded by the special effects in a moonwalkin’ medley of Michael Jackson "Thrillers", including Black or White, Billie Jean, and Bad. By the end of this show you will have no doubt why it’s called "Rock the House"!
