A show that consists of combining a standup comedian with a musical artist performing an eclectic mix from folk to country, to blues and rock. Below are a few of the musical artists we work with:
Brandon Jeffries: Currently residing in Suffolk, VA, a town lying on the border of Virginia and North Carolina; he has recently achieved the title of #1 Alternative Artist there (ReverbNation). Early in 2016, he also received an Academia Award in Los Angeles, California for "Best Alternative Rock EP"! He was voted "Fan Favorite" in the "Rock Your Talent Showcase" in Atlanta, GA (2014) and has won and placed in several National and Local songwriting competitions, such as "The Fishman Southeast National Singer/Songwriter Showcase" in Atlanta, GA (2011) and the Mike Aiken Songwriter Contest in Hampton, VA (2011, 2015), to name a few. His recent release, Future Classic, has already received several positive reviews and awards!
DC Malone: After two decades touring as the comedy team Malone & Nootcheez, DC Malone decided it was time to go solo. An Oregon native and son of a jazz drummer-mortician, DC lived in a mortuary until he was 13. "That'll hone your comedy skills right off the bat", says DC. Starting on drums, adding guitar by age 10 and raised on jazz, blues & folk, his life changed radically when grandma gave him a comedy album by Allen Sherman. Whether expounding on the trials and tribulations of marriage, complications of single life, his childhood, singing questionable camp songs, or critically acclaimed "upper middle class, white ass suburban just moved to a better part of town blues", DC Malone's show is filled with hilarious songs and stories inspired by his own fascinating life. With ease and likeability, DC will have you feeling as if you're in his living room with a bunch of friends. Great comedy for you...good therapy for him.
Huck Flyn: Huck has brought his guitar on stage with him from day one. His different brand of humor mixed with lots of music really throws the audience for a loop…they weren’t expecting it. So, wherever he goes he’s “the rock n’ roll comedian” and the crowds love him. In 1978, Huck met Chuck Barris and the two became friends and Huck wound up doing 5 Gong Shows. In 1985, he joined The “Otis Day & the Knights” tour on the east coast. After filming Knots Landing for CBS in 1987, and while visiting a comedy club in the Bay area, he ran into a couple old friends, Marty Cohen, and Bruce Baum, and together with people like Vic Dunlop and others, he did guest sets at clubs around the bay area...he became a regular on the comedy circut and the crowds immediately took to him. He quickly started working all over the state and then all over the country. He started at places like the Punch Line, The Comedy Underground, the Riviera Hotel, The Ice House and various clubs and colleges all across the USA.
Cygne: After ten years of studying classical violin Cygne found her voice writing and performing original songs in New York City. Upon graduation she embarked on her first solo European tour, boldly embracing the life of a troubadour. When she returned to the US she moved into her car and by summer she was performing on the Telluride Bluegrass and Rocky Mountain Folks Festival main stages. In the 250,000 miles and 1000+ performances since, Cygne's passion has translated to audiences from small clubs in the Czech Republic to large US & Swiss festivals. Like a friend who alternately comforts, entertains, and probes, she greets us with the ease and authenticity of someone who has spent a lifetime turning strangers into family. Written in response to her experience in Europe during the refugee crisis and terrorist attacks of 2015 and 2016, Cygne's new album Let It Breathe (February 3, 2017) provides hope and inspiration for challenging times. Cygne worked with producer Steve Rossiter at Axis Sound in New York City to create what has been unanimously declared their finest collaboration. Tune in as she enchants with thought-provoking songs and stories from the road.
