The Naked Waiters are an acoustic, ukulele-based group that started in Cedar City, UT, and is now based in Provo, UT. They specialize in fun, melt-your-heart music that’s good for the soul. They are comprised of Kim Bjerga, Clark Holmes, and Andrew Nufer. The guys enjoying playing their music and perform anywhere they can. They have written several songs and are now trying to raise funds for a quality recording. Their songs range from cliché love, and are about quirky things like cats, balconies, and Pokémon.

Katelyn & Mira will be kicking off the afternoon music performing two songs. We were so impressed with their performance at the Open Mic last year that we asked them to come back this year.
