Pat Metheny first burst onto the international jazz scene in 1974 displaying his soon-to-become trademarked playing style, which blended the loose and flexible articulation customarily reserved for horn players with an advanced rhythmic and harmonic sensibility - a way of playing and improvising that was modern in conception but grounded deeply in the jazz tradition of melody, swing and the blues. With the release of his first album, Bright Size Life (1975), he reinvented the traditional "jazz guitar" sound for a new generation of players.
Joelle Joanie (better known as JoJo) Siwa was practically born on the stage — with a bow perfectly placed in her hair. The bubbly singer, dancer, actress, and YouTube vlogger has already stacked up an impressive array of credits, well before celebrating her sweet 16.
Born in Omaha, Nebraska, Siwa took to singing and dancing with help from her mother Jessalynn, a dance teacher and studio owner. JoJo made her first national TV appearance on the second season of Lifetime's dance reality competition show ‘Abby's Ultimate Dance Competition.'
At the age of 10, she was the youngest contestant on the show and ended up a top 5 finalist. This led to a stint on Abby Lee Miller's ALDC dance competition team and a role on the reality show ‘Dance Moms' in 2015 and 2016.

Joining a-ha to make this one poptastic event not to be missed is another superstar who dominated the ’80s, Rick Astley.
