"Here's Your Sign
It's Finally Time"
@The Grand Opera House
Saturday 7/9/2022 4:00 PM & 8:00 PM
Galveston native comedian Bill Engvall returns to the island with two shows this weekend at The Grand Opera House.
According to his web story Engvall's career breakthrough happened in 1992 when he was named Best Male Standup at the American Comedy Awards. His first role as a series regular came soon after when he was cast in the ABC series Delta, starring Delta Burke. The show only lasted one season and Engvall returned to making the rounds of comedy clubs and the occasional television appearance until 1996 when he was cast with fellow comic and best friend Jeff Foxworthy in the NBC version of The Jeff Foxworthy Show. Signed by Warner Bros. Records in 1996, Engvall released the first of a series of comedy albums, Here's Your Sign, based on his signature stage bit. The album was certified Platinum and peaked at #5 on the Billboard Country album chart, thanks in part to the single and music video of the same title on which he collaborated with country singer Travis Tritt. Eight more comedy albums followed, including Dorkfish in 1998, and 2009's Aged and Confused.

It was in 2013, Engvall was a contestant on the 17th season of Dancing with the Stars paired with professional dancer Emma Slater. In the first week, he danced the foxtrot and scored 18-points with the judges. The second week was Latin week and he saw some higher scores from the judges receiving a 21 for his Jive. And the third week of competition he earned a score of 24 with a Paso Doble to the Lone Ranger theme song. Throughout the rest of the show, the judges usually placed Engvall and Slater at the bottom of the leaderboard, but an enormous fan base kept them in the competition, resulting in higher-scoring contestants, Christina Milian, Snooki, Brant Daugherty, Elizabeth Berkley, and Leah Remini being voted out instead.

(From All Music.com - Jason Birchmeier) When rap's Dirty South movement broke nationwide in the late '90s and early 2000s, Ludacris rode it to immediate widespread popularity, becoming arguably the most commercially successful Southern rapper of the time. The entirety of the aughts found the rapper scoring hit after mainstream hit and selling platinum numbers of records like 2001's Word of Mouf and 2003's Chicken -N- Beer. He quickly became a multifaceted superstar, making multiple film and television appearances while staying active in music with consistent guest features on other artists' tracks and albums of his own like 2015's Ludaversal.
Ludacris - What's Your Fantasy
Born Christopher Bridges on September 11, 1977, in Champaign, Illinois, Ludacris moved to Atlanta during his high school years and attended Banneker High School there. He then studied at Georgia State University. His entry into the rap industry came via radio; he worked as a disc jockey at Atlanta-based urban station Hot 97.5 (which later became Hot 107.9), where he was known as DJ Chris Lova Lova, and this was how he became acquainted with Timbaland. The producer featured Ludacris (then billed as Ludichris) on the song "Fat Rabbit" from his album Tim's Bio (1998), and with such a high-profile feature to his credit, the groundwork was laid for the rapper. Ludacris proceeded to record an independent album, Incognegro (1999), which he in turn released regionally himself, on the label Disturbing tha Peace. Ludacris primarily worked with producer Shondrae for the album, though also with Organized Noize, the acclaimed production team behind the early albums of OutKast and Goodie Mob. Incognegro sold well enough to break into the Billboard 200, and Ludacris was approached by Scarface of the Geto Boys, who as a representative of Def Jam was interested in negotiating a recording contract.

(From last.fm.) From the emotional well-spring of singer-songwriter Jeff Crowder, came the integral foundation for Houston-based artistic rock band, Deep Ella. With meaningful lyrics and organic melodies as the backbone of the project, the band released the record “Last Years New Thing,” in 2002. LYNT was characterized by a mix of diverse songs with a range of styles that embody the wavering passion of a progressive youth. Drawing together the experience of local success, consistent gigs, and a loyal fan base, the band began tinkering in the studio, using a few EPs to mold their sound. Deep Ella spent the better part of 2006 holed up in Helberg House, the band’s home studio, working on their sophomore album “Empty Seas and Memories.” ( . . .more at Last FM Click Here)

Ultimate Rap League
@Bayou Music Center
Saturday 7/9/2022 3:00 PM
This weekend in downtown Houston its Ultimate Rap League: NOME.
The league originally grew out of the popular series of street DVDs known as S.M.A.C.K. DVD (Street Music, Arts, Culture and Knowledge) that ran between 2002 and 2008. The rap DVDs often feature in-depth interviews and details about up-and-coming rappers' lives. Many DVDs feature a rap battle which was often filmed right on the street, a cappella and without judges. These battles heavily influenced future rap battle leagues and competitions such as MTV's Monday Night Fight Klub,GrindTimeNow.net, Sho-time Battle Rap League, and King of the Dot, setting a new standard for modern day battle rap.
URL NOME XII ANNOUNCEMENT #1
Today, the URL averages up to millions of views on many of their rap battles. They strongly protect their history in the battle rap culture through their slogan, "You Can't Copy Respect", advising battle fans to "follow the innovators, not the imitators". The league has helped provide a platform for many aspiring artists. Rappers such as Charlie Clips, Conceited, Hitman Holla, Tsu Surf, Hollow da Don, Aye Verb, Goodz, Calicoe and Big T were all part of the first wave of battlers for the Ultimate Rap League. Many key figures including Smack himself have been featured on BET and XXL Magazine due to their parts in URL's success. Their battles are also commonly debated by battle rap bloggers and promoters, and featured on WorldStarHipHop.com. In May 2019, The URL launched the URLTV.TV App. The subscription based app allows subscribers to, view unreleased and pay-per-view battles along with other original programming.

A week from Saturday its multi-millionaire Nathan Johnson Graham's, "Unspeakable" at Toyota Center with his "Unspeakable Live" event. If you can't make it to Toyota Center you can buy a streaming ticket.
Houston's Weekend Planning Guide says this is one Summer 2022 event that is worth a ticket. Graham is a web entertainer using his creativity, which is fantastic and earning a living from the worldwide web. Bravo!
The way the Youtuber has described this event as "Make memories with Nathan, James, and Gabe as they bring their YouTube channels to life with games, guest appearances, and chances to win UNSPEAKABLY cool prizes! plus, if you can’t make it in person, you can join the fun virtually and participate online via global livestream."
Now that is a weekend for everyone who has been with Nathan since he started his web ride long time ago.
Trapped on Deserted Island
In his words,(From unspeakable.com) "When I was only 9 years old I built a car from a hovercraft…Pretty impressive? Remote controlled! When I was only 8 years old I built a Lego city with 23,453 Legos...Is that impressive? No?
Well, how about when I was 2 years old I built the Eiffel Tower! With magnets, of course...
Since I was young, I've loved creating things and venturing into things I’ve never done. I also made videos about things I enjoyed. One day I decided that I was going to become an astronaut. Then, after a year of brainstorming, I got realistic and decided I wanted to be a YouTuber."
"2011 - I started by making Minecraft videos, but unique ones that would draw a new audience and players to the game. After nearly two years of uploading unique, creative, and funny videos to my YouTube channel almost every day, I hit 100,000 subscribers. I felt like I accomplished the world, and I was on top of everyone! However, my journey hadn’t even started yet. I had to teach myself how to adapt, edit content in different ways, entertain an audience, and grow a brand up to the millions! I never gave up because I couldn’t go a day without thinking about what video I was going to create next!"
"You have to work really, really, really hard if you want to be truly great at something. For the last 3 years I barely took a day off, pushing myself to working 115 hours a week. I worked every waking hour for months. But I didn’t dread a single minute of it because my passion was dripping out of me. Every ounce of muscle and brain power wanted to create a successful YouTube channel that people from every country in the world would tune into. Take every day as a learning opportunity to improve. Take every failure as a learning opportunity to be better next time. You may move 5 steps forward today, but 3 steps backward tomorrow. Growth never comes from your comfort zones."
"SHIRTS. EST 2016 4 years ago I decided it was time to create a product I can sell. I had 730,000 subscribers...surely, at least one person would buy something! Right? I contacted a local shirt shop and visited a hardware store for shelves. Two weeks later I had 5 shelves and 600 products in my garage."
"WHY - I created a clothing brand to connect with my audience better. To give them a piece of me they can have in their own home. When you purchase a product from us, you take unspeakable home with you. As I am extremely passionate about creating videos, I am just as passionate about creating a great product for you to purchase. I don’t just make these products, I use them daily! Our shirts, water bottles, hats, hoodies, and accessories I wear and use every day."
