Shorty said the show will include music from The Eagles, James Brown, Michael Jackson, Bruno Mars, and of course himself. 

“So we get a little bit of everything. A lot of reggae, we do a lot of segway, Sam and Dave, my girl- we’ll be doing a little bit of everything. Meant to be, whiskey. We do it all. It’ll be a really awesome show to get a variety so we reach everyone in the audience. And this is not just stand up music. A lot of acts that I’ll be doing with my guitar, a lot of tricks I’ll be doing,” Shorty exclaimed.
