I didn't chose the Juggle-life, the Juggle-life chose me. I realized I had natural talent as a juggler. I became interested in juggling when I was about 13, a show at Disney World inspired me. I started practicing six plus hours a day and improved quickly. My family, oddly, was supportive of me and I had many opportunities to hone my skills. At 17 I competed at the IJA world championships and medaled! That was where my career as a performer began. I've been performing my one-man comedy show all over the world for the past 15 years. My juggling is now instinctive, so as anyone would, I naturally progressed and began knife throwing... 🔪😁

Shanice Green gives us a necessary break from the norm. In a world that's seemingly obsessed with the next Top 40 hit, it's very rare to come across an artist who embraces soul and authenticity. Shanice Green pours pure, unfiltered "soul" into her listeners hearts. She has managed to find a sweet spot between acoustic soul, blues, and "folky-pop" that sits just right. From festival stages to coffee shops, Shanice brings a unique, soulful energy wherever she goes. While Shanice accompanies herself expressively and rhythmically on acoustic guitar, it's her rich, euphonious voice that truly captures hearts.

@pentleyholmes

New Jersey native, Pentley Holmes is truly that rare artist whose work achieves both technical and emotional brilliance. A self taught guitarist, pianist, and vocalist, Pentley is as well-rounded musically as they come. Pentley’s background in creative writing allows him to unite his musical talent with an authentic expression of what it means to be alive. Not only the nephew of the inspirational heavyweight boxing champion Larry Holmes, Pentley is a fighter in his own right. In 2009 he survived a typically lethal ruptured brain aneurysm. His survival and recovery after 15 days in ICU only furthered his inborn passion for life and his place in the world as a musician. Pentley’s debut album “Rip Out My Heart,” offers a beautifully rendered glimpse into the depths of these human experiences. Pentley is a national touring singer/songwriter traveling the country sharing his signature blend of contemporary folk and soul pop that make his music as easy on the ear as it is on the heart. With new music forthcoming and the daring boldness to dream, Pentley is undoubtedly one to watch.

"Punch Line Drunk" by Patrick Holbert

patrick@patrickholbert.com
@theholberreport

Patrick Holbert is a former TV producer-turned-standup comedian who performs in New York City’s hottest bars and clubs every night. He has appeared on Sirius XM, TruTV, The Travel Channel, and was the host of the internationally syndicated TV show “The Movie Loft” for two years. The New York Times called him the "charming M.C." of the children's variety show he performed in from 2015-2017. Currently ten years sober, Patrick hilariously uses his past struggles with alcohol as fodder for his brutally honest comedy. With jokes and autobiographical stories, his main goal is to destigmatize challenging topics such as mental health, addiction, and family dysfunction. When he’s not on stage, he also works as a substance abuse counselor and recovery coach. An active member in his sober community, Patrick is married and lives in Brooklyn.
