Celebrate the return of NPE® when you hit the dance floor to the tunes of Pop Rocks! Known for their high-energy performances packed with current hits mixed with Motown, 80s, 90s and more, this San Francisco-based dance band features six exciting performers who will kick the opening party into high gear. With a diverse style and classic sound, Pop Rocks is in high demand domestically and internationally and has performed for groups like Google, Facebook, Salesforce, the San Francisco 49ers and others.
