It’s not the capital of electronic music, but it’s really going off. I’m pretty sure like 50% of the people had never heard of me, but somehow they got involved in the energy and in the drive and really enjoyed it. And as an artist, that’s great to see. Looking back, it was like the energy that would have been in Vegas or Miami or LA; it was just straightforward fun."

The duo released “Brown and Proud” in 1990 and the single “On A Sunday Afternoon,” which contained samples of The Young Rascals’ 1967 hit “Groovin'” and Tommy James and the Shondells’ 1969 hit “Crystal Blue Persuasion.” It peaked at No. 39 on the Billboard Hot 100.

Jon Reep likes to keep busy. That is, in part, what made him want to start the podcast “The Jon Reep Show.”

“I like to stay up on current events,” he says during a recent phone interview. “If you don’t have a podcast by now, I feel like it hinders your career.”

Aside from hosting his podcast, Reep also is a stand-up comedian. He was the winner of NBC’s “Last Comic Standing” during season five back in 2007. He’s also been on Comedy Central’s “Premium Blend” and had two half-hour specials, “Comedy Central Presents: Jon Reep” and “Jon Reep: Metro Jethro.”

Jan. 28, 2015

Is there a better way to start the New Year than by winning a brand-new pickup truck?

Maybe, but that’s how Diane Martire figuratively honked in the New Year at Santa Ana Star Casino, although it’ll soon be in her son’s hands back in New Jersey. He’s the one who needed the $33,000 truck more; his old pickup, she said, would cost more to fix than it was worth.

Rio Rancho Observer
Jan. 25, 2015

Comedian Alex Reymundo — an irreverent bad boy, some say — certainly won’t need directions to Albuquerque this week, probably just advice on how to find Santa Ana Star Casino.

He has great memories of four sold-out shows he did at the National Hispanic Center in Albuquerque, used in a TV special, in 2008.

And he’ll be back in the Land of Enchantment, performing shows at 7 and 9:30 p.m. on Thursday at The Stage at Santa Ana Star Casino.
