A diverse array of local, regional and national artists perform the songs of the film's original special guests, making the show a unique all-star experience showcasing the finest talent from the local music scene and beyond. Local artists to be featured in the concert include Bob Stannard, Andrew Stearns and Will Mosheim of Gold Town, along with Rick Redington, Laura Molinelli, Phil Henry and Split Tongue Crow.
