It's a big gig for Sam Guyton and Generation Z.
The Milwaukee born and bred singer, musician and dancer spoke live with the CBS 58 News at 4 Wednesday before he took to the stage at the Harley-Davidson Road House.
"Anything that gets people moving, that's what I want to do," said Guyton with a wide smile.
The Michael Jackson tribute is among his favorites.
"He was the king, I'll never get tired of doing his music," declared Guyton.
Generation Z does a heart pounding performance covering several genres with a full set of back up dancers.
Guyton believes Summerfest is the perfect spring board for any aspiring artist.

Never one to shy away from a challenge, he has also taken on the role of Morris Day in the "Prince Experience" show which has headlined year after year at Summerfest, as well as other festivals and in downtown Chicago.
