Entertainment

Speaker Image
Los Lonely Boys

Lots of musicians compare their careers to roller-coaster rides, but Los Lonely Boys have had so many close-your-eyes-and-hang-on moments in the 14 years since they recorded their self-titled debut, they should buy an amusement park

Speaker Image
Smilin' Vic

Smilin Vic of Smilin Vic & The Soul Monkey's best claim to fame came October 13, 1996 as the winners of the International Unsigned Blues Contest. Since, he has shared the stage with the likes of Lou Rawls, Delbert McClinton, Etta James, Lonnie Mack and James Cotton to name a few. Always a favorite at festivals, clubs and country clubs, playing a blend of Jazz standards, Atlantic Soul and Basic Blues.
