JUSTON MCKINNEY

An Evening of Laughs!

Juston McKinney grew up on the border of Maine and New Hampshire. After earning an associates degree from the very prestigious Southern Maine Community College, he was hired as a York County sheriff’s deputy patrolling the same border in which he grew up. But in 1997 Juston turned in his gun and badge and left the dangerous streets of rural Maine and moved to New York. While living in NYC he worked his way into the weekend line-up at Comic Strip Live, Stand-up New York, Dangerfield’s, Gotham, and Caroline’s on Broadway. McKinney has appeared on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, Conan O’Brien and has two Comedy Central specials and was chosen to be part of the Blue Collar Comedy Next Generation Tour. In 2000 the New York Times called him “destined for stardom”.

HOT FLANNEL

“ ACCOMPLISHED, INNOVATIVE, IMAGINATIVE, and supremely musical, Ross captured the adrenaline of a thousand hearts. As the last note spiraled into the stratosphere and evaporated, the crowd sprang to its feet and roared for more.” - Stephen Pedersen, The Halifax Gazette

Flannel. Hot. Put those two words together, and you’ve got the jarring juxtaposition of an adjective designed to scintillate, and a material so homespun it’s downright humble. Hot Flannel, a head-turning foursome of handsome country-boys-turned-men making newgrass music like there’s no tomorrow, embodies that same unexpected twist of grounded and ground-breaking, cozy and cathartic. Led by fiddler Patrick Ross, a new resident to Newbury, VT. The first ten people arriving wearing flannel get a free CD. More info at PatrickRossMusic.com

A co-produciton with ROCK FARMER RECORDS
