William Gartner
Gartner’s work ethic is mythical amongst even his most storied contemporaries: Make music all week. Play it out all weekend. His DJ sets – and this speaks to a combination of prolificness, personal taste and a proven track record – are almost entirely made up of edits of his own work. Whether or not his progressively more maximilist take on electro-house is your bag or not, you have to respect his exponentially steep rise through the electro-house ranks.

Zucchero World Tour 2014
Adelmo Fornaciari is the talented Italian musician more commonly known to the world by his nickname, Zucchero ("Sugar"), given to him by an elementary school teacher. He began playing the guitar in his home province of Reggio Emilia, focusing on music in the blues/R&B mold. As a teenager, he founded a local band called Le Nuove Luci. After forming another group, Sugar and Candies, in 1978, Zucchero began writing as well -- Italian pop songs for other artists, and more blues-oriented material for himself. He won the 1981 Castrocaro Festival, which led to performances at the 1982 and 1983 Sanremo Festivals. The exposure allowed Zucchero to release his own solo album, 1983's Un Po' Di Zucchero. His song "Donne," performed with the newly formed Zucchero & the Randy Jackson Band, caused a sensation at the 1985 Sanremo Festival; even though "Donne" didn't win, it did become a hit. This introduced the Zucchero blend of Italian pop and electric blues to a larger audience. During the late '80s and early '90s, he became one of the best-selling artists in Italy and a favorite all over Europe. Although he performed at the 1994 Woodstock Festival and appeared with Eric Clapton, Buddy Guy, the Scorpions, and Luciano Pavarotti, Zucchero's American audience remained limited. In the new millennium, Zucchero's success has continued as a performer and an award-winning songwriter.

Optima Batteries ChumpCar World Series
Optima Batteries ChumpCar is North America’s home for REAL, AFFORDABLE, COMPETITIVE endurance road racing. We’re talking real racing, real tracks and real cheap cars! We’re talking endurance races that range from 7-hours to 24-hours long… and, even longer! So, why do we do this and who is this series for? This series is for gear-heads; for people who love driving and driving fast. It’s not about gimmicks or theatrics.  It’s about ‘Joe Average’ and almost-race-ready cars. ChumpCar is a throw-back to the era when racing was fun and cheap… when Bondo beat carbon-fiber; when a crescent wrench was the most valuable tool in your box; when home-made engineering made everyone sit up and take notice; and when adding a little theme to your car didn’t get you laughed off of pit lane.2- day tickets and single day tickets are available. Optima Batteries ChumpCar will be on Lightning Raceway.
