Before there was "Hamilton", there was "In the Heights". The brilliance of Lin-Manuel Miranda's new vision of American musical theater -- in all its blow-the-top-off-expectations exuberance -- is spectacularly realized in both shows. Like "Hamilton", "In the Heights"' style is ostensibly hip-hop, but characters sing and dance to a wide variety of musical styles and moods. Energetic and infectious, the show tells the universal story of a vibrant community in New York's Washington Heights neighborhood. It's a community on the brink of change, full of hopes, dreams and pressures, where the biggest struggles can be deciding which traditions you take with you, and which ones you leave behind. "In the Heights" took home four Tonys in 2008, including Best Musical. Make sure to nab tickets to this high-energy Broadway At Music Circus production at Wells Fargo Pavilion in Sacramento. [less-]

The show has a cult following of loyal fans. It’s been called “A Dear Abbey for Dudes” which is why both men and women tune in religiously. Additionally, he co-hosts a modern dating podcast called “U Up?” with Jordana Abraham of Betches where they discuss their take on modern dating with issues ranging from apps to hookups to relationships. Jared’s fans also seek out his voice in the online publishing world. He’s written for TotalFratMove, BroBible, Betches, LuvThis and HeTexted. His columns delve into everything from sports to "The Bachelor" to the pitfalls of dating in the information age.

The familiar maxim of the triple threat – singer, songwriter, musician – doesn’t begin to cover it for Toby Keith, one of the modern era’s most complete self-directed hit makers. And Keith’s most recent months are a remarkably accurate representation of his entire career. At the close of 2018, he celebrated the 25th anniversary of his debut No. 1 single, “Should’ve Been A Cowboy” with the re-release of his debut album (remastered with the addition of three vault tracks), a week of events in Nashville including a BMI event to commemorate the milestone, two shows at the historic Grand Ole Opry, and a performance at the Nashville Symphony Ball where he received the prestigious Harmony Award. Keith also released a new song, “Don’t Let The Old Man In,” which was inspired by a conversation he had with Clint Eastwood and was later featured in Eastwood’s movie, "The Mule." Rounding out the year full of music-related accomplishments was his 15th Annual Toby Keith & Friends Golf Classic which raised more than $1 million, bringing the annual event’s total funds raised to $12.4 million, to support the charitable endeavors of The Toby Keith Foundation which includes aiding sick children and their families in Oklahoma.

Hank Denson, an Atlanta based comedian, has been making a name for himself on the comedy circuit for the past 12 years. He’s a friend to your favorite comedian, having opened up for Jamie Foxx, Cedric the Entertainer, Amy Schumer, Caroline Rhea, and George Wallace. Hank is a regular guest host on the NBC daytime show "Atlanta and Company" – and has appeared in "Barbershop 3" and the Tupac biopic "All Eyes on Me". It was a random yet honest moment in 2016 that led to Denson becoming an internet sensation. After volunteering as a chaperone during his son’s field trip, a mentally tortured Denson recorded an amusing commentary about his day at the Georgia Aquarium with a group of six-year-old kids. His summation: PAY TEACHERS MORE MONEY! He confessed that after one day with these six-year-olds, he was completely drained and the heroes that do the work every day, teachers, should be paid more. After receiving widespread support, and over 8 million views for his #payteachersmoremoney movement, Denson has hit the road performing exclusively for teachers, and even put the call out that if any teacher had a hard day, he would buy them a round of drinks. Denson, who rarely drinks, jokes, “People ask me, ‘Why pay teachers more money?’ I tell them, you go volunteer at your local school… you will need a Hennessy and Coke!” [less-]
