Downtown Hattiesburg will be rocking Friday night when the 10th annual Eaglepalooza kicks off at 6 p.m.

Bands performing include D.J. Bionics, sponsored by Southern Miss Activities Council; Mack Wilds; The Adam Doleac Band; Rosco Bandana, sponsored by Click Boutique and Gallery; and headlining artist NEEDTOBREATHE.
D.J. Bionics has toured with music artists Jay-Z, Trey Songz and Wiz Khalifa, and has been featured on MTV, BET, and performed at Bonnaroo Music Festival.

Mack Wilds is an up-and-coming R&B artist who recently released his debut album “New York: A Love Story.”

The Adam Doleac Band are locals who released their album “Something About Nothing.” The album includes their hit single “One Day.”

Rosco Bandana is currently on tour with FUN. and was featured in Billboard Magazine in 2012 as an up-and-coming indie folk/rock band. Rosco Bandana is originally from the Mississippi Gulf Coast and is signed to Hard Rock Records.

NEEDTOBREATHE has multiple top Billboard hits with their most recent album “The Reckoning” reaching number six on the Billboard Top 200. In 2011 and 2012, NEEDTOBREATHE was on tour with Taylor Swift. Currently, NEEDTOBREATE is on their own tour called “The Stomping Ground.”

“Our selection process included researching and knowing some of today’s top artists,” said Jeffrey George, Eaglepalooza assistant director.

“There wasn’t any one particular genre we were aiming for because we realized the student body consists of many different types of people who enjoy all kinds of music,” he added. “Our hope in choosing our artists is that we create a show that features a little bit of everything.”

George said anyone planning to attend Eaglepalooza should expect a great night of fun, food and great entertainment.

“Our vendor area will feature a variety of incredible food for you enjoyment and the entertainment will feature a good mixture of different types of music for everyone to enjoy,” he said. “I am expecting a crowd full of excitement. Grab your friends, grab a hamburger and enjoy the show on a cool Friday night.”
