Nicknamed MGK by his fans, the MC released his first mixtape Stamp of Approval in 2006 and built a local fan base performing at Cleveland venues like Hi-Fi. But it was a trip to New York's famed Apollo Theater in 2009 that really gave him his start.

The energetic performer became the first rapper in history to win the Apollo's talent show. MGK's mixtape 100 Words And Running came shortly after and he created a high school promotional tour, where he performed to such excited crowds that school security teams began turning him away to keep the peace. And while the MC's catchphrase, "Lace up," which started as a mixtape interlude, became a call to arms for fans, their leader was still flipping burritos at Chipotle to pay his rent. After graduating high school, MGK's father kicked him out of their home and forced the young MC to fend for himself. Not long after, an 18 year-old MGK welcomed his own child, a daughter named Casie. The infant gave the rapper new incentive to work even harder and he soon earned a nod for Best Midwest Artist at the 2010 Underground Music Awards and his "Alice in Wonderland" clip won Best Music Video at the 2010 Ohio Hip-Hop Awards.

Besides being at the forefront of the electro-trap music movement, Brooklyn-based producer Baauer made headlines when his track "Harlem Shake" became the first viral sensation to debut on top of the Billboard charts thanks to calculating YouTube plays. An aspiring bedroom producer since the age of 13, Harry Rodrigues took the name Baauer to brand his electro-trap tracks, which combined crunk hip-hop beats, dance music tempos, and clever samples off video-sharing sites. He made his official debut in early 2012 when his bass-heavy party track "Dum Dum" was released by the LuckyMe label on a one-sided, laser-etched 12".

Alex Ridha – better known to the world as Boys Noize – has been making electronic music and working as a DJ for over half of his life. He established himself as one of the world’s preeminent wizards behind the decks, having played the world’s biggest stages alongside the biggest names in dance music. His sets are equally uplifting, not only technically but also as a showman, leaving unforgettable experiences for the witnesses. One of the reasons why the Rolling Stone voted Boys Noize amongst the Top10 `DJs Who Rule The Earth` in 2012.

Comedian, actor and writer Nick Swardson may best be known as "that guy from the Adam Sandler movies," but he's actually got a successful comedy career of his very own. Starting out in improv but switching to stand-up a few years later, Swardson delivers high energy, incredibly silly comedy that often focuses on partying and sex. Though he often plays flamboyant characters, Swardson claims it's just an act -- and one that he's no longer interested in repeating.

When Foreverland took the stage for the first time one San Francisco night in June 2009, no one could have predicted that just two weeks later, Michael Jackson would pass away. But since that moment, Foreverland: The Electrifying 14-piece Tribute to Michael Jackson, has been leading a larger-than-life celebration of his musical legacy from coast to coast.

A different kind of tribute band, you won’t see any impersonations here. Instead, Foreverland simply aims to honor and do justice to the music and spirit of the King of Pop. Throughout this truly unforgettable performance, die-hard fans will relive their favorite MJ moments, and younger crowds will rediscover the amazing music that remains timeless.

The band has mesmerized audiences around the country with their one-of-a-kind performances of the music of Michael Jackson, and they continue to play to bigger and bigger crowds. Foreverland’s four dynamic vocalists, powerhouse rhythm section, and slamming horn section recreate hits like “I Want You Back,” “Don’t Stop Till You Get Enough,” “Smooth Criminal,” and “Thriller” from the Jackson 5 era through the end of Michael’s incredible career with energy, groove, and force.
