My Sinatra with Cary Hoffman

Cary Hoffman (Playwright/Actor) is finally achieving his dream with his autobiographical one-man memoir musical, My Sinatra, about his Sinatra obsession, opening Off-Broadway this spring. Ironically, the story is eerily similar to Ray Romano’s Men of a Certain Age, on TNT, of which Hoffman is an Executive Producer; the premise tracks the changing lifestyles and dreams of three 50+ men.

Sauce Boss

Florida swamp-funk slide guitarist, Bill Wharton has been a musician for over a half a century. On his 1989 New Years Eve gig, Sauce Boss splashed a bottle of his Liquid Summer Hot Sauce into a huge pot of simmering gumbo, feeding the entire audience. The rest is history. 200,000 bowls later, he’s still feeding the masses for free at his shows. The Sauce Boss show is a soul shouting picnic of bluesy, rock and roll brotherhood.

The Best of the Second City

The Second City opened its doors on a snowy Chicago night in December of 1959. No one could have guessed that this small cabaret theatre would become the most influential and prolific comedy theatre in the world. With its roots in the improvisational games of Viola Spolin, The Second City developed an entirely unique way of creating and performing comedy.

The Mallett Brothers

The Mallett Brothers Band’s busy tour schedule over the past seven years has helped them to build a dedicated fanbase across the U.S. and beyond while still calling the state of Maine their home. With a style that can ranges from alt-country to Americana, country, jam and roots rock, theirs is a musical melting pot that’s influenced equally by the singer/songwriter tradition as by harder rock, classic country and psychedelic sounds.
