Philadelphia Plowden is one of the most sound actors/comedians working today. His observations & revelations about the human condition, mixed with stories from his own life, take an audience on a 200mph trip that could stop at any point along the journey. Philly puts it all on the line, because he always works in the moment.

His ability to relate to people from different walks of life has made him a favorite in the cruise ship industry, comedy clubs, & corporate events. He’s opened for stars like the late Robert Palmer, Richard Jeni, & Julio Iglesias on the West coast leg of his 2003 world tour. Stories about his mother, kids & marriage has made him a favorite wherever he plays. With TV appearances in commercials & as a standup or a dramatic & comedic actor, Philadelphia is the “Full Package of Entertainment”!

Devin Siebold
Most women love tall, funny guys, and standing at 6’6″ Devin Siebold doesn’t disappoint. However, after working the past several years as a middle school teacher, don’t just expect him to pick up the check on any date. It is hard to deny Devin’s stage presence, when he is the size of the stage. He connects well with all audiences mainly because he can reach 7 rows back and physically grab any audience member not laughing at his jokes. The jokes center around his extensive past as a playboy, educator, and his ability to balance the two without going to jail in the process.

With credits to his name including Sirius XM, Pandora, writing for Uproxx, Nextround, and being selected as a finalist in Comedy Central’s Up Next, Improv Future Features, Side Splitters Opportunity Knox Winner and winning dozens of local comedy competitions, it is clear to see that Devin is on the right track to moving out of his van and into a slightly larger, newer-smelling van.

Grammy award-winning legend Mavis Staples teams up with multi-platinum recording artist Joan Osborne on the highly anticipated national tour, “Solid Soul”.

From her early days with the iconic Staple Singers, when she was on top of the charts with songs like the 1972 #1 hit I’ll Take You There, to her recent albums with Wilco’s Jeff Tweedy, Mavis Staples has been a leader in American music for six decades. The “Solid Soul” tour marks her first tour collaboration with Joan Osborne, the widely celebrated singer-songwriter who dominated Top 40 radio with her hit song One of Us and whose albums have garnered seven Grammy nominations.

“Mavis Staples will undoubtedly go down in history as one of the greatest gospel singers of all time. … From traditional gospel music to protest songs that underscored some of the decade’s most dramatic social changes, to the self-empowerment anthems and soulful love tunes of more recent years, she proves to be a gospel legend.” —The Current “

[Joan Osborne’s] sweet yet husky voice is a wonderfully expressive instrument, bringing emotional honesty, a.k.a. soul, to every performance…Osborne’s compositional, arranging and vocal talents take the listener on a classy, beautifullyrealized music journey.” —American Songwriter
