Rob Floyd, one of the most recognized names in the cocktail industry, is featured on shows like Bar Rescue, Fox and Friends, and Access Hollywood. Rob launched an alcohol-infused whipped cream with celebrity Cardi B called Whip Shots that is now sold nationally. His “Cocktail Theatre” focuses on both history and storytelling, combined with under-the-radar ingredients, creating not just a cocktail, but an adventure in a glass and a feast for the senses.


Nashville recording artist Madeline James debuted her first album in 2018 following that up with the much-anticipated single Precious in 2021. Her iconic sound, with inspiration from Taylor Swift, Carole King, and Billy Joel, will provide unmatched ambiance to this event.
