Chloe x Halle

Sister duo Chloe X Halle navigated YouTube’s pop landscape with a string of jaw-dropping covers the past couple of years revealing their gift for creating keening harmonies and genuine musical moments that showcase their expansive range. It was their soulful rendition of Beyonce’s own “Pretty Hurts” that caught the attention of the mogul’s Parkwood Entertainment imprint in 2013.

In the spring of 2016 Chloe x Halle released their stunning debut EP, Sugar Symphony, braided by numinous forces equal to their sibling DNA: Mystically layered harmonies, peerless production instincts, and an adjoining R&B/pop destiny intertwined with mentor Beyonce (who, incredibly, initially met the girls on a film shoot more than a decade ago), all setting the table for their genre-pushing debut “Drop.” In the summer of 2016, they left a lasting impression in Europe while on tour as an opening act for Beyonce’s 2016 record-breaking “The Formation World Tour.”

In December of 2017, Chloe x Halle released the theme song for “GROWN-ISH,” the “BLACK-ISH” spin-off that has been met with overwhelming praise for its honest portrayals of teen lives in college. They were added to the cast as series regulars, after initially signing on for recurring roles.

In 2018, the duo released their highly anticipated debut full-length album The Kids Are Alright from Parkwood Entertainment and Columbia Records.

Steven Castillo

Steven Castillo is one of the most original performers in Chicago. He is a delight to audiences everywhere, leaving a lasting impression on those who see him. His comedy dives into the absurd with a combination of fresh material, music and sound cues, and even sometimes speaking in a foreign language. He’s performed in Comedy Festivals including Riot L.A and Limestone Comedy Fest.

Castillo’s recent show “Steezus,” a multimedia parody concert of Kanye West’s “Life of Pablo,” has been seen across the nation including on LA’s Comedy Central stage. In addition, Steven has shared the stage with nationally performing comedians Eric Andre, Tim Heidecker, and Andy Kindler.  Popular comedy website, Interrobang.com, said: ” If you don’t know him already, find him, watch him and love him.”
