David Drake is a comedian. He is a very funny comedian. Since starting stand up in Chicago a bunch of years ago, he has been invited to perform in over two-dozen national festivals, been featured in Comcast's televised stand up specials 'Who's Laughing Now?' and 'Trial by Laughter', and will appear on this season of Laughs on Fox. In 2014, he was named one of Complex Magazine's ‘Comics to Watch Under 30’ and the Chicago Tribune called him an ‘Affable new face we wont soon forget.’ He is a producer of Comedians You Should Know NYC, cast member at ComedySportz Chicago, and his first album ‘Dave’ debuted in the Top 5 of the iTunes comedy charts. David currently performs nationwide while working out a niche in New York's legendary comedy scene and sometimes he'll eat fries off your plate. He feels bad about that. He's sorry... I'm sorry. I'm David Drake. This was me the whole time.
Michael Lesko, 30, plays drums and writes and produces his own music. He is currently writing, performing, and recording with his folk rock band, Dreamaholic. Michael Lesko has performed in groups that vary in genre from folk and experimental to reggae and hip-hop. He studied at Berklee School of Music. Michael has composed hours of original electronic music available on michaellesko.bandcamp.com.
Michael is now teaching songwriting and he is starting a kind of musical coaching, he calls, Musical Guidance. This is a series of one-on-one sessions that helps familiarize beginners, of all ages, with music and it's potentially transformative role in their lives.
