William Joseph

Friday, August 2nd; 2:00 pm

William Joseph is one of the most electrifying pianists, composers and producers of our time. His rare virtuosity and passion left music icon David Foster mesmerized when he first heard him play. That chance encounter with Foster in Arizona sent Joseph’s career skyrocketing.

WJ has an incredible ability to create, manage, and produce live entertainment. Joseph is known for combining his music with dramatic theatrics and over the top visuals. He has a reputation for kicking-off events with explosive entrances, including dropping down from the ceiling James Bond style, entering on a flying stage, or rising from below the stage surrounded by pyrotechnics.

Iam logo v1 BLACK.png

Saturday, August 3rd; 11:30am

Iam Tongi had America tearing up from the moment he started singing, "Monster" by James Blunt. An emotional tribute to his father who'd encouraged him to audition for Idol but passed away before he made it in front of the judges, the performance instantly became a viral sensation. The quiet yet powerful maturity in this 18-year-old Samoan, Tongan from Hawaii's voice, is unparalleled.

An old soul, his beautiful rasp, with a light island influence permeates every note in every song he sings, invariably taking listeners on an emotional journey. Although Iam himself is rarely serious, preferring to approach life with a laugh and a joke, his musical taste and styling shows a depth of range far beyond his years. In his current single, "I'll Be Seeing You", Iam gorgeously laments about the loss of his father. His formidable vocal ability brings a yearning to those moments when, although you’ve lost someone, you realize they are never truly gone; you see them everywhere you look. Iam said, “This song is very beautiful, and it resonates with me, it means a lot to me. It is about my father and if you think about it, this song talks about “I’ll be seeing you wherever I go” because when a loved one passes away you are going to remember them in everyday life. My dad had to go to dialysis and every time we drive past the place, he had to get it done we always point and say, 'Oh, look, dad.' We never say, 'Oh look that’s where he used to get it done' we always just say 'dad.'”
