Mickey Bell

Mickey Bell

From an early age, Mickey has always been the one to stand out in a crowd. Not because of his awesome size but from his ability to lighten up any mood or situation. He is no stranger to the stage since he started standing in front of people since the age of 10. Mickey proves that you don’t have to use vulgar language to get people to laugh. You simply have to look around this world to find plenty of comedy material. This is very important to Mickey because it allows him to entertain audiences from any stage, event, conference or concert.

49 Winchester

49 Winchester

Formed eight years ago on Winchester Street right here in our area...Castlewood, Virginia, the band started as a rag tag bunch of neighborhood teenagers who just wanted to get together for the sake of playing together. “From day one, it’s always been a band and it will always be about being a band. This is everything, everything we love about music — we’re going for broke with this thing,” says lead singer/guitarist Isaac Gibson. “And that gives us a unique perspective because it’s still the same guys. It’s still all of us from Castlewood traveling around, playing music and making this band a reality — this is a story of growth.”

Yellow Brick Road – Tribute to Elton John

There is no other performer who looks and sounds so much like Elton John, nor any tribute act that provides the experience of being at an Elton John concert the way Gerald Brann and Yellow Brick Road do. Brann not only bears an uncanny resemblance to the international superstar — complete with gap-toothed smile and many of his mannerisms — but recreates Elton John's vocals and playing to a tee. To capture the essence of the piano man, Brann dresses in replica costumes and wears Elton's trademark outrageous glasses.
