Karen Mills is a breath of fresh air. Her humor is smart, funny, and original. No one can help you “get your laugh on” better than she can. She’s been compared to such greats as Bill Cosby, Ellen Degeneres, and Jerry Seinfeld. Her comedy is clean, clever and relatable – she finds the funny in everyday life. A native of Tennessee, this southern girl makes one thing clear, “I am NOT a southern belle, unless I need to be.”

Leanne is married to an “conservative republican” with three children. Her comedy focuses on her children who are always first priority. Being a mother of three young children in rural Appalachia did not allow for many traveling dates in her early career. Her first public attempt at standup comedy was to emcee at a local variety show for a men’s civic club. This two-night stand led to many appearances in local East Tennessee coffee houses and scores of regional corporate events.

May/3rd/9pm/$10 SEVEN HANDLE CIRCUS, GRASS N’ ROLL

Posted on Jan.16, 2013

Formed in 2010, Seven Handle Circus is a six-piece Georgia band that has been critically acclaimed as “bad-ass bluegrass” with the “drive and energy of a rock band.” During their legendary live performances they push the limits of human endurance to send each crowd into a dancing and partying frenzy. Elements of rock, punk and alternative infuse their shows and they have even rocked crowds with rappers such as T-Pain & Yung Joc.

On their debut EP, Whiskey Stills & Sleeping Pills, Seven Handle Circus draws from their love of traditional bluegrass and folk and distills these influences into a modern sound that is all their own. With themes ranging from the fun of drinking to the complexities of life, Seven Handle Circus shares the beauty of the music they love, along with plenty of new surprises.

The band is already following in the footsteps of some wildly successful alternative acts that use elements of bluegrass to create a modern style of music. Whiskey Stills & Sleeping Pills was recorded in Asheville, NC at Echo Mountain studio, whose clients include cutting-edge artists like the Avett Brothers. Last May, the band headlined Chattanooga, Tennessee’s acclaimed Nightfall Concert Series, where Bela Fleck and the Flecktones and Nickel Creek played before breaking wide open. Last year, Mumford & Sons invited the band to play at The Fox Theater in Atlanta after the platinum-selling Englishmen just happened upon an acoustic set 7HC was playing at the bar next door to the historic theater. “Gotta love those downtown establishments keeping original music out there.”

Feb/21/7:00/$27GA/$35VIP James Gregory Live at the Historic Capri Theatre, an MKT Entertainment Production

Posted on Jan.11, 2013

For over two decades, the unforgettable caricature of veteran comedian James Gregory has stood grinning: his shirt untucked, his arms outstretched, a carefree welcome to a down-home, hilarious comedy experience. It’s storytelling at its best. The trademark caricature is the essence of James Gregory’s comedy: rib-tickling reflections on life from the front porch. 

James does not “tip-toe” through life as if he’s walking on broken glass or egg shells. That style is evident on stage as well. He is not politically correct. Much of his humor is centered on brilliant observations of crazy relatives and people obsessed with the slightest change in weather conditions – now referred to as global warming. He delights in poking fun at modern sensitive parents and out-of-control environmentalists.

The James Gregory show turns the clock back to a time when life was simpler; to a better time, before the death of common sense; a time when people sat on the front porch and actually talked to each other without a cell phone in their ear.

Gregory’s success, like his comedy, is the direct result of the values he grew up with. And now, twenty something years later, it is this unique brand of humor that packs the crowds into his sold-out shows. The absence of vulgarity sets James apart and his stories are carefully crafted art. “I have lived long enough to know people, know life”, Gregory reflects. “My comedy is based on my life experiences. It’s real, it’s funny and the audience loves it. That’s why I’m still in business.”   James is heard weekly on syndicated radio shows such as Rick & Bubba, John Boy & Billy and Bob & Tom. Combined, these shows are broadcast to people in over 220 cities nationwide. As a result, he now has a grass-root following that numbers in the millions.

This show is brought to you by  MKT Entertainment
