When it comes to hosting a poker night, the playlist is essential for creating an exciting and memorable experience. There’s nothing quite like the high stakes and mystique of a casino environment. It’s no surprise, then, that so many people love hosting poker nights, or trying their hand at online games.

The Eurovision Song Contest today announced that from next year there will be an “American Song Contest”, with similar format, but including contestants from all 50 states of the USA.

New Hope Club have recently announced that they will be rescheduling their UK tour – which means that they are no longer touring this coming August/September. Fear not though. All purchased tickets still remain valid and the band have even extended their tour by adding more dates – which means that it will be bigger and better. See the list of rescedueled (and extra) dates below:
Chanique is not your average triple threat. She’s got singing and songwriting under her belt, as well as stage acting. But she’s also a professional model, and a more than competent chef. Basically, Chanique can put her hand to anything and come up a winner, but it’s been from her very earliest days, growing up on the Caribbean island of St Vincent and The Grenadines, that she’s known she was meant to make her name in the world of music, and her latest single, ‘I Can’, is possibly the perfect example, a Chanique primer if you will, of what she can do.
Virginia Beach Fourpiece OK Mayday is made up of friends, including a couple of brothers, who write catchy, fully-realized, soulful indie that stands apart. While their sound could be characterised as basic rock, they also take some of their cues from pop, which ensures that their songs are just that bit more powerful. Their most recent single, ‘Blossoms’, probably stands against any characterisation, but it’s definitely one worth adding to your summer playlist.
Rap, like every other genre of music, is a constantly evolving thing, and in order for artists to make a name for themselves that will see them remembered, they have to move with the times, they have to adapt, and they also have to live the lifestyle. Fans look most to those who truly know what struggle is, and who have had to work hard to get where they are. They can spot the posers a mile off.
Now Endeavor is made up of duo Just Pete and Thom The Disco Spider, a pair of musicians from Detroit whose latest single, ‘You Know Me’, from their most recent EP, ‘Survival’, along with its animated video, is a profound statement of faith in benevolence – pay it forward, reap good karma, do something good today, and you may benefit from it tomorrow.
Just looking at the thumbnail for ‘Leaving While You Stay’, the latest release from Greg Hoy & The Boys, and you know what it’s going to be about. A clown, complete with wig and full make up, stands poised ready to strike a cowbell with a stick. It could be any clown, but the face is unmistakably that of Donald Trump’s, or at least, someone in a Trump mask.
Zoli Téglás, the longest-serving lead vocalist for Orange County band political activist hardcore group Ignite, frontman for Misfits, and Pennywise, as well as actor, featuring in majors such as ‘Terminator: Dark Fate’, and ‘The Alienist’, has another string to his already considerably well-strung bow, that of a tireless champion of animal rights and environmental protection. With his new five-piece band, Ocean Hills, he has released the alt/hard rock track, ‘Death Or Liberty’, which absolutely oozes sonic rebellion, and defiance.
Performing as StringZ EMB, Saint Louis singer Gregory Bowdry has performed all over the US, been played on radio all over, and has even appeared on FOX. Not letting COVID-19 slow him down, he’s turned his focus from live shows to increasing production, and wrapping on his second full-length project.
