Fitz And The Tantrums

Brimming with imagination, energy, and genre-smashing scope, Fitz And The Tantrums defied the odds to become an indisputable phenomenon, a chart-topping, show-stopping modern pop combo unlike any other. Now, with their spectacular Elektra Records debut -- "More Than Just A Dream" -- the Los Angeles-based sextet have ramped up the timeless song craft and soul sonic force that made them a worldwide sensation to fashion a kaleidoscopic milestone that delivers on the promise of their 2010 breakthrough, "Pickin' Up The Pieces."

Steve Holy

When Steve Holy's breakout smash, "Good Morning Beautiful," stood atop the country charts for five straight weeks in 2002, it sparked a fire that has continued to smolder throughout his decade-long career. Holy has shown unyielding tenacity and persistence since his first big break in 1993, when he beat out 500 hopefuls in the Dallas-Fort Worth area Johnnie High Country Review. In 2000, he released his certified gold debut album, Blue Moon. For the past two years, Steve has taken time off to return to his hometown of Dallas and spend time with his two young daughters. The time has come though, as Holy is once again touring relentlessly and climbing the charts with his top 20 single, "Love Don't Run" and current hit "Hauled Off And Kissed Me."

Sean Kingston

Sean Kingston's most recent album, "Back 2 Life" fuses reggae, hip-hop, R&B, and electro to create melody-soaked pop much like his 2007 self-titled debut (featuring the double-platinum breakout hit "Beautiful Girls") and 2009's Tomorrow (featuring the smash singles "Fire Burning" and "Face Drop"). Don't miss it as Sean Kingston burns up the stage.

Carly Rae Jepsen

Grammy nominated Carly Rae Jepsen exploded onto the pop music scene last summer with her certified platnium number one hit, "Call Me Maybe," from her international debut album "Kiss." Carly Rae brings spunk and fun to all her performances!


Grammy award winning rapper and reggae singer, Shaggy, joins the RoZone stage. In 1993, Shaggy exploded on the music scene with his debut album "Pure Pleasure." Shaggy followed with the album "Boombastic" in 1995 and won a Grammy Award in 1996 for Best Reggae Album. He topped a chart list that included the Top 40 Rhythmic charts, Hot 100 and Billboard 200, among others. In 2000 Shaggy released his fourth album "Hot Shot," which went Diamond worldwide and Platinum 6 times in the United States. Notable singles from that album included "It Wasn't Me" and "Angel." 2012 saw Shaggy receive another Grammy Nomination for "Summer In Kingston."
