Arena Entertainment (6-7:25 p.m.) PARIS

The evening’s entertainment will be provided by PARIS. Consisting of Alan Daubenspeck, Debra Shawn, Jordan Cranford, Ceirra Doll, Timothy Haley, Dan Jordan, and Bill Shilkitus.

PARIS began performing as a duo with Alan Daubenspeck and Debra Shawn in the Charleston, WV area in 1993. The duo relocated to North Carolina in 2007, and over the years the band has grown with the addition of five members, blossoming into a high energy dance/party band performing crowd favorites such as pop, disco, classic rock, jazz, beach and more! 

PARIS has performed for hundreds of special occasions including weddings, corporate parties, holiday parties, concerts and more! As the band’s reputation grew, it gave the group the opportunity to open for many national acts including, All-4-One, Ohio Players, QuadCity Dj’s, The Greg Kihn Band, Eddie Money and Jennifer Page. Whether it’s an audience of 300 or 30,000, PARIS has the experience to make your event a success!!
