On May 11, during the Rays vs. San Diego Padres, Kenny Loggins will be playing. He already has 12 platinum albums to his credit and has become one of the most iconic forces in the music industry. He has sang and recorded a number of hit songs for movies including three of the people’s all-time favorites “I’m Alright”, “Footloose”, and “Danger Zone”. Kenny enjoyed early success in the industry with the classic duo known as Loggins and Messina, which sold over 16 million records. The duo featured hit songs like the “Danny’s Song”, “House at Pooh Corner”, and “Your Momma Don’t Dance”. After some time, Kenny moved on to pursue a solo career, which became highly successful. In fact, his song “What a Fool Believes” won a Grammy award in 1979.
On June 8, during the Rays vs. Baltimore Orioles, Martina McBride will serenade the crowd with her lovely songs.

On June 16, during the Rays vs. Kansas City Royals, lined-up is the Imagination Movers. The group is comprised of four longtime friends, including Rich Collins, Scott Durbin, Dave Poche, and Scott Smith. They came together in the year 2003 and formed the group. And ever since, they have been living according to their motto, “Reach high, think big, work hard, have fun!” The Movers are indeed very entertaining, which reminds the listeners of the Beastie Boys or Red Hot Chili Peppers.
