Mean Wendy Band
The Mean Wendy Band is a Philadelphia-based comedy band with roots in both music performance and sketch comedy. Mean Wendy Band performs original songs penned by a Philly girl named Wendy and her 4-man Man Band. Wendy’s mother always said that “if you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say anything at all” so we just sing our unpleasantries.
The Mean Wendy Band is Wendy Lenhart and her 'Man-Band' of Ryan T. Barlow, Brian Kelly, Dan Kristie and Zachary Wiseley.
Champagne Jerry, "New York's finest underground rapper," was named one of the best performers in New York by Time Out, profiled in Rolling Stone, Brooklyn Vegan and Interview magazine and been a musical guest on The Chris Gethard Show on Fusion TV. He is a music and performance project of Neal Medlyn alongside collaborators Max Tannone, Adam Ad-Rock Horovitz and his onstage entourage of Tannone, Sophia Cleary, Farris Craddock and the Ghost of Champagne Past. Champagne Jerry continues Medlyn's prior work with pop stars in his Pop Star Series. The aim is to continuously create and provide the most significant moments in everyone's lives. He has routinely sold out shows at Joe's Pub in New York City where he had a year long residency and has played the Brooklyn Academy of Music, The Kitchen, New York Live Arts, Union Pool, Pianos, and various rock clubs, parties, Walmart parking lots, art venues and theaters on tour across the U.S. His album and videos for his albums “For Real, You Guys” and “The Champagne Room” are available now everywhere.
Amelita is a mini pop concert, which dazzles the crowd with catchy pop tunes that also happen to find the fun in insecurities. Half over-confident and half anxiety personified, Amelita performs the songs with little spoken improvised interludes. Song topics range from having a panic attack while trying to hit on someone, going through a terrible breakup with a Sim, to learning how to age gracefully. Amelita has performed at the Out of Bounds Festival in Austin, TX, The North Carolina Comedy Arts Festival in Chapel Hill, NC, The New York Funny Songs Fest in NYC, The 420Comedy Fest in Toronto, ON, and all around New York City on variety shows and other stages.
