The opening band is Hampton's own The Fuzz Band, whose sound is a fusion of urban & rock music. The band met and formed while attending Hampton University. Locally, the band has won multiple awards as Best R&B, Best Live Performer, and Best Song & Album recipients. Nationally, The Fuzz has gotten national attention in multiple magazines.
