Eaglepalooza 2011 begins at 6 p.m. with the doors opening at 5. The event is presented by the Golden Eagle boys soccer team.
Tickets are $8 and also admit the bearer to an upcoming regular season Golden Eagle home soccer match of his or her choice and that's a $5 value as well.
"This will be the third year for Eaglepalooza and we are so excited about this year's event because it is going to be all live music of the Beatles," Eagle soccer coach Neal Gordon said. "We picked the Beatles theme for our first ever live show because no music is more universal than the Beatles. The interest has been overwhelming and we are so excited that all the music this year is going to be performed live this year."
Several Central students and their bands will take the stage along with a number of special performances.
A band consisting of Shelbyville Central alumni Kurt Menck, Keith Pilkington, Joe Bolin and Mike Locke will rock the crowd, Gary Haile is in the lineup to sing an acappella rendition of "Let It Be," a children's choir from Liberty School will perform, Nate Strasser, David Beavers and a mystery faculty member will do piano songs while Mike Novak, Matt Ogles and Adam Womack will lead a singalong.
"At the end of the concert there will be a 100-member choir of individuals from across the community and that's going to be something to see and hear," Gordon said.
When Gordon came up with the idea a couple of years ago he hoped that Eaglepalooza would eventually turn into a live concert featuring all the talent at Central as well as throughout the community.
"The response of those wanting to perform has just been great. We really have some talented kids in our school and they have really work extremely hard," Gordon said. "As fun as the first two were, this year's event is going to be even better."
Tickets are going fast and Gordon is expecting a sellout.
"This is not going to be a talent show, but a showing of talent," Gordon said.
