With different styles and from different areas across the country, these artists create a unique performance together. Eicher’s style is folk/pop leaning towards the radio-friendly, while his smooth voice can melt even the hardest of hearts with songs like “I’d Like to Get to Know You.” Oxford’s equally soothing pipes no doubt make the ladies swoon, especially in this cover of Bruno Mars’ “When I Was Your Man.” Completing the trifecta, Howard’s acoustical skills and perfect harmonies help transform the stage from a simple performance to an oasis of untapped talent for your eager ears. Enjoy special guests Great Ancient Trees and Caleb Lovely before the main event. 8 p.m. 56 – 58 S. 12th St., South Side.

2) When doing a Jillian Michaels’ workout, I’m pretty sure she’s going to jump through the TV and yell  at me if I slack off. While that may or may not be true, health and fitness expert of “The Biggest Loser” fame goes by the mantra of changing your life, not just your body. As part of her Maximize Your Life Tour at the Benedum Center, Michaels emphasizes that fads may fade, and that  life changes and daily habits are key to our happiness. Are you really going to be happy drinking juice concoctions for the rest of your life? Jillian’s tough love doesn’t beat around the bush nor does she make promises she can’t keep. In this inspiring and motivating performance, she gives you the tools to reach your goals and get the most out of life. 8 p.m. 237 7th St., Cultural District.
