She is an award winning vocalist who is a multiple winner of Nashville’s “Be A Star” as well as “That’s Show Biz” talent show in Branson.

Atlanta native, Mark Evans, has spent his entire life in the south. His “Southern…not stupid” tour has been taking clubs by storm all across the country and at the same time, erasing the myth that all southerners are a bunch of inbred pig farmers! Mark brings a perfect blend of humor and sarcasm which points out the lighter side of the dumb things we see and hear every day. As he puts it, “We all either cause, or suffer from these random acts of stupidity! The humor is in finding out which one of these two categories we fall into.” His fresh approach not only leaves them laughing in the aisles, but hopefully a little bit wiser!
A country music group from Freeland that grew over the years since Laurie herself started performing music at the age of 18. She has created so many great musician friends over the years performing all over Michigan. Laurie enjoys writing songs, recording albums and playing live music whenever possible so she formed the Laurie Middlebrook Band to capture the true meaning of performing live music. The band members have been playing and singing with other musicians over the years but have been performing with Laurie consistently for several years, dating as far back as 12 years.

Nick Gaza is a funny, sick, twisted bastard. His act is a mixture of hysterical true stories and things we can only hope aren’t true. Nick makes fun of everyone, the audience, himself and anyone else that gets in his sights. His comedy knows no boundaries so be warned!!!!!

Nick has made dozens of sitcom appearances including The Drew Carey Show, Malcolm in the Middle and Becker.
