Looks like we have our replacement for Starlight Spectacular after all! So happy a nighttime presentation is coming back to International Street; it adds so much life and magic to the park. I wonder if this is a specific show or a continuous, 8pm-to-close presentation like Starlight Spectacular.

Join is as we bring the park to life with Hot Rhythm Nights. This incredible new show features singers, dancers, and a 9 piece live band. The music will get you moving as International Street turns into a party like no other.

I’m with ol’ Duncan....Hot Garbage on that stage as of late. Anything would be better than pop shows there. A brass band, a juggler, a drunk guy telling jokes, Anything! Hell, I would enjoy the singing mushrooms up there more than any show that’s been there in the last few years.

I hope this is the case, the website isn't reflecting it yet. If so, it appears KD is stepping up their entertainment lineup some this year since they added the country show as well. It sounds like a choreographed, live band show, which Cedar Fair has been leaning toward the last few seasons at several parks. The vocalists/dedicated dancer/live band formula usually makes for outstanding shows.

The version they had called "Turn It Up" at Carowinds last year was all around excellent.

King's Island has had a version since around 2013 first called "Playlist Live", then called "Off the Charts" since 2015. It features a full live band and 5 vocalists that also do choreography. In 2015, they moved the show to the International Showplace and it also featured dedicated dancers. That was the best year for that show. This will be at least the 7th year for that show. The band that performs in that show with 4 of the vocalists that perform at the park also perform as River City Band around Cincinnati.

IMO at KD at last 3 shows have been excellent and full of good energy with great talent.

2016 "Playlist Live" was by Moonmax. The choreography was super tight with something going on every second. There were a few live instruments, but not a full live band. It also had a great flow from song to song.

2017 "Turn It Up" was also Moonmax. The same choreographer did the same great work. A few live instruments. That show had some harsh stop and go transitions from song to song however.

2018 "Sunset Party Mix" was RWS, which was initially disappointing after the great work by Moonmax. But after watching the show with an open mind, it also had great choreography and overall good flow. This show featured a full live band, and less vocalists. Which In a show like this normally 4 vocalists are enough because when you go over that, you don't get to hear enough of each one.
