Entertainment, Contests and Kids Zone


Wingstock features live local bands playing throughout the day.  In 2015 we added a second stage and even more great live music!  Check out who played last year, and check back often to see what the line up will be for Wingstock 2016!

Contest Information
Kids Zone and Easter Egg Hunt

Welcome these bands to Wingstock 2016


Mogollon, (pronounced Mug-e-on) began in the small Northeastern Arizona town of Overgaard.  Playing music was a good way for a few high school buddies to impress the girls and combat the boredom of a small town.  Fast forward to today -  Mogollon has earned the reputation as one of the premier Country Rock Entertainment groups in the West.  Mogollon will leave you wanting more!

Zubia Bros. Zubia Bros

Making music has been a lifelong passion from brothers Lawrence and Mark Zubia.  Born and raised in the overheated environs of Phoenix, the gifted singer-songwriter tandem has become a veritable institution in the state.  The Zubia brothers founded Chimeras, which eventually morphed into the Pistoleros, which led to a major label recording contract.  Their sound includes a heady mix of roots, country, and classic pop traditions.  You're truly going to enjoy the Zubia Brothers!

Elvis Before Noon

No, they are NOT an Elvis Presley tribute band.  They ARE that cool band that plays down the street in your neighborhood.  A band of 4 guys that just happened to meet and love to perform music to please anyone listening.  You can catch them locally at east side venues, special events and festivals, playing tunes reminiscent of the twangy "desert sound" that made Tempe music spots famous.

Elvis Before Noon

Vintage Wednesday Vintage Wednesday

Hailing from Mesa/Gilbert, Vintage Wednesday is influenced by rock music from the 60's and 70's through today, covering bands like The Beatles, Fleetwood Mac, Heart, Rolling Stones and U2.  Their originals have a classic rock sound mixed with an Indie vibe. You don't want to miss this up and coming local band!
