About Performers
JT Hodges has toured with country greats such as Eric Church, Eli Young Band and Toby Keith. He earned an ACM nomination for Best New Artist of the Year in 2012 and is currently working on his much anticipated sophomore album, which is set for release later this year.

Kat Dahlia has an electrifying sound that is a sultry mix of pop, Latin, hip-hop and reggae influences. She deftly alternates between unleashing pure, infectious lyrical fire in party jams and poetically pondering heartbreak and relationships in ballads.

Maddie & Tae will light up the stage, country-style. They were cited by Rolling Stone as one of “10 New Artists You Need to Know” after writing their first song “Girl in a Country Song.” They come to Downtown Phoenix fresh off their appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon:
The Roots are a Grammy Award winning hip hop/jazz band known for a jazzy and eclectic approach to hip-hop and feature live instruments. Beginning in 2009, The Roots were the house band on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon and they currently play the same role on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.
Walk the Moon is known for their blissful, quirky brand of rock and roll. Their live shows are an interactive celebration of life and love, and a communal commitment to joy and living in the moment.
Wisin is an award-winning Puerto Rican reggaeton performer who has collaborated with internationally known artists, such as Lenny Kravitz and Enrique Iglesias.

Verizon Super Bowl Central is the epicenter of Super Bowl XLIX festivities with one million visitors expected to revel in Downtown Phoenix from Wednesday, January 28 through Sunday, February 1, 2015.
