ENTERTAINER BIOS
DJ Sandman:
DJ Sandman delivers magic with his blend of old school hits and new school beats. With more than 20 years’ experience in moving dance floors around the world, DJ Sandman delivers a one-of-a-kind nighttime party experience.

JAMM:
JAMM performs high energy medleys from Motown, to rat pack classics, to today’s hottest hits. Performing masterpieces from The BEATLES, Eagles, Earth Wind & Fire and Chicago, to current hits from The Black Eyed Peas and Justin Timberlake, JAMM will have guests up dancing to its incredible lineup of great music.

San Fernando:
Dynamic, versatile and energetic are just a few of the words to describe this exciting reincarnation of one of Las Vegas' favorite lounge bands. Band founder Perry Santos continues to thrill audiences on lead guitar and through his many impersonations while Desa Enoue and veteran Bo Santos fascinate audiences with their soulful vocals.

LAUGH OUT LOUD COMEDY HEADLINERS:
GREG WILSON
You can find comedian Greg Wilson on the past three seasons of TruTV’s “World’s Dumbest,” two seasons on VH1’s “The Greatest,” and in “Comics Unleashed with Byron Allen.” When he’s not doing standups on networks like Showtime and ComedyTV, you may see Wilson guest starring in dozens of television shows like “Modern Family,” “Law & Order” and “Bones.”

RICHARD VILLA
It’s no wonder Richard Villa comes up first in a Google search for “Best Latino Comic.”  He was the first American comedian to ever perform on Spanish language television programming and in 2007 he was named “Comic of the Year” by Tu Ciudad magazine. Villa is also the creator of the successful Hollywood improv show: Refried Comedy. Look for his latest DVD at the nearest Redbox kiosk, or even better, see him live at Ravello.

AIDA RODRIGUEZ
A current finalist in this year's “Last Comic Standing” on NBC, Aida Rodriguez can be seen hosting “Hot Topics with Judge Joe Brown,” making audiences laugh on NickMom’s “Night Out” and “Parental Discretion with Stefanie Wilder.” Rodriguez is also the host of The Wedding Zinger, a comedy roast special for the NuVo Network, and has been featured on NuVo TV’s “Stand Up and Deliver.”

KIRK McHENRY
Labeled as one of the fastest rising stars in comedy, Kirk McHenry blends a story telling -style of comedy that has been likened to Bill Cosby with a Richard Pryor twist. Having already been featured on three seasons of BET's “Comic View,” Jaimee Foxx's “LAFFAPALOOZA,” and adding his first feature film credit to his bio last year, "What are the Chances" starring Snoop Dogg and E40, McHenry is on his way to becoming a household name.


HOSTILE GRAPE PERFORMERS:
TIM CATCHING
Tim Catching started playing the piano at age five and has been singing since he was old enough to make a sound. He picked up the guitar in high school and has been playing ever since. Catching moved to Vegas in 2003 and can be heard performing across the city. His eclectic musical selection sets a good vibe and will surely get audiences grooving.

SHAWN EIFERMAN
Shawn Eiferman is an award-winning songwriter whose songs have been featured on numerous television shows and films. A two-time winner of UNLV’s “College Entertainer of the Year Award,” Eiferman has also taken home a Battle of the Bands competition trophy. Fans may recognize him from his performances at MIX 94.1’s Bite of Las Vegas and KKLZ’s Junefest, where he has shared the stage with headliner bands including Journey, Bad Company, Macy Gray, Franky Perez, Wilshire and Uncle Cracker.

BETSY HOLM
At a very young age, Betsy Holm started singing after hearing her mother sing an array of ‘40s torch songs around the house. She learned to play the guitar at age 12 and after graduating high school started playing at clubs in Hollywood and on the Sunset Strip. Since moving to Vegas in 1994 she has been writing her own songs and has become a part of the original Vegas music scene. Her songs have been featured on CBS television programs and Lifetime network movies.

MICHAEL LOUIS AUSTIN
Michael Louis Austin grew up listening to a variety of musical genres. British pop, American folk, rock, hip hop and even Broadway musicals have had an influence throughout his musical career. Austin has been a part of original bands that have opened for groups such as Everclear, Letters To Cleo and The Spin Doctors. He is known for his positive lyrical messages with plenty of hooks in all the right places.

Paul Campanella
At 15 years old Paul Campanella worked on weekends as a drummer in his father's band in Buffalo, NY. Quickly realizing that singing drummers were in short supply, he found a niche for himself. He has since toured more than 18 countries and has appeared on more than 20 albums, compilations, and soundtracks as a drummer, percussionist, songwriter, and vocalist. Campanella has lent his talents to a diverse group of artists such as English pop singer Ben Stone, blues legend Nappy Brown, and New York indie rock outfit, Evil Jake.

TONY VENNIRO
This Las Vegas native’s repertoire ranges from the ‘50s all the way up to today’s modern music, playing hits from Frankie Valli, Frank Sinatra, Otis Redding, The Police, Soft Cell, UB40, Sublime, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Bruno Mars, and more. What makes him stand out is his unique utilization of a loop station, which enables him to create a full band sound, live, all on his own. This process includes vocal harmonies, guitar rhythm and leads, bass melodies and percussion sounds.

YVONNE SILVA
For being a self-taught, solo female artist, Yvonne Silva’s unique vocal style, original arrangements and “go-getter” attitude has attracted much attention in the Las Vegas scene. Silva’s music is a combination of pop/alternative/blues/house and broken hearts poured into a blender and set to 'liquefy'.

ARROW
Singer-songwriter Arrow’s music encompasses a variety of genres.  You may have seen him performing across the Las Vegas valley or at Sundance Film Festival, in the Gibson Showroom on Fox 5 or at Lake Las Vegas’ Indie Rock Wars. Arrow has opened for Steel Panther as one of the members of "Loophole."
