In a musical career that has spanned over 30 years, Joseph Hasty has been influenced by a host of legendary artists - in a wide variety of musical genres - evidence of which can be heard on his CD release: "Rhythm Changes".  His extensive performing experience has carried him to stages in America, Australia and Europe - where he lived for seven years.

A three-time recipient of the "Regional Artist's Grant" award presented through the North Carolina Arts Council, Joseph currently plays guitar and/or upright bass and sings lead or harmony vocals with several regional acts in Western North Carolina including his own Jazz combo: "Centerpiece Jazz".

A gifted performer who displays talents as a composer and arranger, Joseph honed his skills performing on street corners in Europe during the 1980's and credits the "Mickey Baker Jazz Guitar" book for his distinctive jazzy-rhythmic-guitar style.

A retired school teacher, Joseph's recently released CD of all original material: "Rhythm Changes", is an eclectic blend of Acoustic Jazz that has received substantial radio airplay on regional NPR stations. Featuring swing tunes, Latin rhythms and smooth vocals, "Rhythm Changes" has been described as 'Fantastic!'.

MARK DANIEL WEB

A Very Magical Family Reading Night grew out of a desire to connect parents and their children with the notion that a good book shared is a treasure for the whole family. In the day to day hustle and bustle of our lives, it's so easy to put aside the good intentions of readIing aloud. Sports, homework, video games, and technology in genreal all vie for our attention today and our beloved books often get pushed aside for later.

The sweet, fun, and powerful message of Mark's program serves as a wonderful refocus and exclamation point for your families.

​A Very Magical Family Reading Night Program is indeed appropriate for the whole family. Books come to life through puppetry, magic tricks, storytelling, book talking, and interactive audience participation and the virtues of at home read aloud. The program closes with a powerful, and motivational finale that kids will think is cool and adults will find inspirational.

Jason Allen King is a comedian, writer, actor, and award-winning filmmaker based in Charlotte, North Carolina. Using the backdrop of his personal experiences, family, and relationships (or lack thereof), King’s stage presence evokes a unique perspective on familiar situations. A northerner who’s been living in the south for too long, he has endeared himself to audiences across the country by pushing the occasional boundary through a positive and sharp spin on observation and self-deprecation. Recently voted Charlotte’s Favorite Comedian by Elevate Lifestyle, King has opened for renowned comedians like Rob Schneider, Christopher Titus, Colin Quinn, and Dave Attell. Other notable honors include It’s A Southern Thing’s One of 15 Southern Comics to Watch and Best of the Fest at the Burbank Comedy Festival. King also writes and stars in the popular web series “George & Monty,” which was invited to screen at the L.A. Comedy Shorts Festival.
