CANTON, OH (June 27, 2012) – The Pro Football Hall of Fame Enshrinement Festival department of the Canton Regional Chamber of Commerce has announced entertainment and emcee details for this year’s Fashion Show Luncheon on Friday, Aug. 3. Great tickets are available and can be purchased now at (330) 458-2048. After a delectable lunch, guests will be treated to “The Guide to Ultimate Style” fashion show that includes state-of-the-art sound, lighting, and video to showcase male and female professional models featuring the season’s hottest fashions. Providing added energy throughout the show will be a variety of musical entertainment including New Hollow and American Commodore Dancers. [gallery link="file" orderby="rand"] Up-and-coming boy band New Hollow offers a fresh new twist to a classic rock sound. The three band members, Mick Clouse, 17 (lead vocal, guitar, keyboard), Evan West, 17 (lead vocal, keyboard, bass, guitar), Chad Blashford, 16 (drums, back-up vocal), are all skilled at multiple instruments and write their own music. They have brought back somewhat of a classic rock approach and merged it with their original flare, making their sound a fresh, pop rock with a retro flare—music appealing to all generations. Traditional favorites, American Commodore Dancers will return to the stage this year for two high-energy performances, and some surprises in store. American Commodore Dancers are a product of American Commodore Tuxedo centrally located in Mayfield, Ohio. They have performed throughout the eastern United States and most recently were featured in the Miss Ohio Pageant. Matt Fox will return again this year as emcee for all the festivities at the Fashion Show Luncheon. He is a well-known HGTV host who has had great success as a speaker, television host, carpenter, designer, as well as being a published author. With 17 years of experience as a public speaker and a presenter at home and garden and trade shows, he has also appeared on numerous national and regional radio and television shows. He was the host of HGTV’s Room by Room, which started in 1994 with co-host Shari Hiller, and he wrote, designed and hosted over 360 episodes, with his Christmas episode the highest rated special in HGTV history. It was the first show to air on HGTV and is the longest running program in the decorating category in television history. He and Hiller now have a PBS series called Around the House with Matt and Shari and he is co-host on Cook and Fox in the Morning on Canton’s own News-Talk 1480 WHBC. Doors will open at 11 a.m. and activities start at 11:30 a.m. Tickets for this fashion and entertainment celebration are available by calling (330) 458-2048. In 2012, the Pro Football Hall of Fame and Enshrinement Festival will mark the 49th anniversary of honoring the legends of professional football, which includes conducting a world-renowned festival celebrating the annual enshrinement of football players, coaches and contributors into the Pro Football Hall of Fame. The collaborative efforts of this leadership team, combined with the professional staffs at the Canton Regional Chamber and the Pro Football Hall of Fame, and the dedicated team of more than 4,200 volunteers, will ensure the success of 19 diverse events from July 20 to Aug. 6, 2012. The Enshrinement Festival activities, attended by nearly 700,000 people, are expected to produce an economic impact of over $31 million for the Canton/Stark County area and $56 million for the State of Ohio. In addition, millions will experience aspects of the Enshrinement Festival as events are televised and covered by other media. The central focus and highlight of this year’s Enshrinement Festival will be the Aug. 4 Enshrinement Ceremony for the 2012 Class of Enshrinees, comprised of cornerback Jack Butler, center Dermontti Dawson, defensive end/linebacker Chris Doleman, defensive tackle Cortez Kennedy, running back Curtis Martin and tackle Willie Roaf.
