Stuart Davis

Stuart Davis is all about the hyphens: Writer-Director-Actor-Comedian-Songwriter. Naturally, Stu's debut television series Sex, God, Rock 'n Roll allows him to play in myriad ways. His day job has always been rock 'n roll. Having performed thousands of shows and released 14 albums, Davis is a pillar of the showbiz carnival. But in the past few years he's been branching out into other forms of fun. Combining original songs, comedy sketches, and monologues, Stu's tv show is a mosaic of mediums that suits his multi-faceted passion.

Alice Peacock & Danny Myrick, Jess Tardy opens

“We spent many, many hours searching for a band name, but nothing really hit us. We just went with Myrick-Peacock by default. It’s mainly because the music and the chemistry behind it mean so much to us, so we got hung up a little bit on the name,” Myrick adds. “We didn’t want to go with just anything.”
