Papa-Sol is a powerful band featuring lively floor shows and danceable pop or soul! Their repertoire also contains a bit of funk, reggae, country, blues, jazz, beach, and good old rock & roll. Papa-Sol plays hits from the vintage years of the 1950's to today. This band has danced from coast to coast and around the world. They boast performance credits in Japan, Thailand, Korea, The Philippines, and Guam. Papa-Sol is guaranteed to profoundly pop your soul!

At 7:00, the USC Cheerleaders, Pep Band, Cocky and the Dance Team will get your spirits up, then at 7:30 pm Papa-Sol will take the stage once again until 8:30 pm. Attendees may purchase food and beverages, and exhibitors will also be on hand.
