Switchfoot: As they enter their 17th year as a band, Switchfoot has achieved a level of success that brothers Jon and Tim Foreman and their high-school friend Chad Butler never anticipated when forming the band in San Diego in 1996. The SoCal natives have sold 5.5 million copies worldwide of their eight studio albums, performed sold-out world tours (visiting five continents in the past year alone), raised hundreds of thousands of dollars to aid homeless kids in their community through their own Bro-Am Foundation, and earned themselves a global fan base devoted to Switchfoot’s emotionally intelligent and uplifting brand of alternative rock.
Brandon Grissom Band: Returning to the Fusion stage this year is the Brandon Grissom Band. Grissom is a singer/songwriter from Oklahoma City who made his way to the northwest suburbs of Chicago in the spring of 2003. Brandon and band lead worship regularly at Willow CreekCommunity Church in South Barrington, IL, as well as various conferences, camps, churches and events around the country.

He has danced in the Grand Rapids Ballet, the only professional dance company in the state of Michigan, and he currently teaches Hip Hop dance at his local church and at the Edge Urban Fellowship.
