Today, her passion and her purpose is defined by her dedication to sincerity in her lyrics with a raw message that can be felt by anyone who has seen struggle and risen above with fists swinging.


2014 MSP Incredible hook 2

Rising up from a groove scene that is congested and drowning in crunk rap hooks and dubstep drops comes The Incredible Hook. They ride the waves of discofunk and dance-rock in a space pirate vessel lashed together by 60s Brit-pop and swooning Motown soul. Formed in the year 20509, after the destruction of their home planet, Red 1337, by the evil Lord Establishment, The Incredible Hook boarded their galactic time traveling space vessel named Liberty and under the authority of the Intergalactic Soul Armada, set back to the year 2012 to save the future of music and the universe. This band of scallywags have been shaking the booties of crowds and channeling bombastic sexy singalongs in dance clubs and rock venues across the Midsouth all in the name of galaxy wide fun and peace.

The Incredible Hook has made an impact on the local scene, but their work is far from done. The Intergalactic Soul Armada will only grant them the access codes to return to their own time after complete and utter saturation of planet Earth from the Hook and all it’s hooker followers. The red feather from the Xinus’azt orio bird of Red 1337 is the interplanetary symbol of Hookers. They unite under this banner and fight for the future of music and our Galaxy.

One Man, Two Guvnors

By Richard Bean


In this fresh, English version of the classic farce, Servant of Two Masters, Francis Hernshall has just been fired from his folk jazz skiffle band. Desperate for work, he becomes minder to Roscoe Crabbe. But Roscoe is really Rachel, posing as her own dead brother — who’s been killed by her boyfriend Stanley Stubbers. Francis spots the chance for an extra meal ticket and takes a job with Stubbers — but to prevent discovery he must keep his two “guvnors” apart. Simple. This unique laugh-out-loud mix of satire, songs, and slapstick is an award-winning celebration of British Comedy
