Carl LaBove is a quadruple threat to the entertainment business.

His onstage performance evolves and changes like the wind and leaves audiences stunned and energized.

A Philly native, growing up as the son of a Philadelphia Detective wasn’t easy for Jimmy. He says“ It was like having Lieutenant Colombo as a roommate, most of my childhood was an interrogation scene from Law & Order ” Jimmy and his band of six brothers were always getting into trouble, and being the middle child, Jimmy learned at an early age that a sense of humor could get him through any situation. He attended the Philadelphia High School for Creative and Performing Arts. It was from those experiences in acting class that Jimmy knew he wanted to be an Comedian. Always the class clown, Jimmy performed magic tricks for his friends and family at 10 years of age. By the age of 15, he had become an accomplished professional magician. He later channeled that energy into stand-up comedy.His unique ability to see the humor in social trends and deliver his poignant and hilarious point of view on world issues has made Shubert one of the most respected and original comedians working today.
Jimmy started performing right out of high school in comedy clubs around the Philly area. He later moved to Los Angeles and started working at the Comedy Store. It was at the Comedy Store where he later met Sam Kinison, and after taking him offstage on a Motorcycle at the Comedy Store’s Main room in front of a packed house , they became fast friends . Kinison liked Shubert’s cockeyed chutzpah and included him as one of the original “Outlaws of Comedy” which he toured with for five years, playing major casinos in Las Vegas and other venues like the Universal Amphitheater in front of audiences as large as 6,500 people. In 1997, after a well recognized performance at the prestigious Just For Laughs Comedy Festival in Montreal , he was spotted by the late Brandon Tartikoff , who signed Jimmy to a holding deal to develop a pilot sitcom for him to star in at 20th Century Fox, which led to another holding deal and then finally a Pilot.
Jimmy’s comedy routine is usually performed with an observational point of view, in comedic short-story form, and typically focuses on poking fun at pop culture. As AllMusic.com put it, “His confidence and lucid delivery enhances his humor, making even his most perverse moments hilarious.”

Kim Simmonds and Savoy Brown
Legendary…a blues/rock institution…true innovators. These are just a few of the ways Savoy Brown has been described over the past forty years by music critics and fans.
One of the earliest of British blues bands, Savoy Brown, with founder guitarist Kim Simmonds at the helm, helped launch the 1967 UK blues boom movement that brought blues music back to the USA invigorating the style forever. In the process, the band became part of the framework that launched the rock and roll music of the 1970’s. Their influence now stretches into modern rock as we know it today.
In 2011 Kim signed the band to Ruf Records releasing the album “Voodoo Moon” that has became a best seller on Amazon.com.
Going into 2013 Simmonds has returned to a three piece band once again, singing and playing guitar along with Pat DeSalvo on bass and Garnet Grimm on drums.
The Dirty Knobs
The Dirty Knobs are the side project of Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers lead guitarist Mike Campbell. A true rock ‘n’ roll band, Campbell once described their sound as “slightly over-driven, less polished, [with] lots of ‘60s influence-The Kinks, Zeppelin, The Animals.”
Marc Ford and the Neptune Blues Club
MARC FORD is one of the most gifted, celebrated and in-demand rock guitarists of his generation has switched gears to deliver what will undoubtedly stand as one of the finest Americana albums of 2014.
‘Holy Ghost’ has plenty of space for Ford to demonstrate that his guitar sorcery is as powerful as ever. But it’s textured in a different setting that will also delight a legion of admirers who never knew he could embrace the wide open spaces of American roots music so brilliantly.
“Reinvention” is an overused word in the creative arts, but ‘Holy Ghost’ overflows with subtle and surprising pleasures, liberal use of pedal steel, Fender Rhodes, mellotron and banjo, and the best songwriting of Ford’s career. It shows off an artist refreshed and refuelled, taking life at a slower pace at home in California these days – and it’s the next chapter in a unique Anglo-American collaboration.
If you know Ford’s back story in full, you know it’s about a multi-faceted reputation forged on the frontline as the fabled lead guitarist with the Black Crowes; at the helm of his own bands such as the Neptune Blues Club and the Sinners; as a vital component of key records and/or tours by acts from Govt. Mule to Izzy Stradlin, from Booker T to Ben Harper; and as the producer of choice for artists such as the great roots-rocker Ryan Bingham and English country-soul talents Phantom Limb.
Rockin’ the blues! Members include Eric Heuschele – Guitar, Robin Hoffos – Vocals/Guitar, Jack Butler – Guitar/Slide Guitar, Dave Held – Bass and David Zedaker – Drums.
Live music has grit again with Southern California’s Boxcar Chief, a five-piece rock band touring venues in Southern California.
Lead guitarist, lyricist, and frontman Brian Gaines (formerly of The Natural Fact, Mandrex Jones, and Almost Criminals) leads his band through a seventies era and Southern rock-jam sound. Scott Anderson’s (Chuck Richards, Hoyny) no nonsense bass lines and Sean Rhead’s (Sourgrass, Hoyny) experimental drum patterns have near perfect synchronicity from their years of playing together in the band Hoyny. In late 2014 Paul Cougil joined them on keyboards; his long standing musical career in San Diego brings experience and melodic depth to their live shows; it’s clear he is having fun and being creative as he plays. Steve Poirier joined the band in 2015 to complete the lineup. Boxcar Chief is all about doing what comes naturally, creating an Americana, summer-all-year feel, perfect for their subtle psychedelic rock and slightly bluesy style. They’re about making music for anyone willing to listen, to cut loose, to escape for a few hours.
