Grammy-nominated OneRepublic is comprised of singer/songwriter and lead vocalist Ryan Tedder, guitarists Zach Filkins and Drew Brown, bassist and cellist Brent Kutzle, and drummer Eddie Fisher. The band released their debut set Dreaming Out Loud in 2007. The release included the multi-platinum-selling smash single “Apologize,” which shattered digital sales and airplay records worldwide and received a Grammy Award nomination. The band’s sophomore album, 2009’s Waking Up, produced the hit singles “All the Right Moves,” “Secrets,” and “Good Life.” The certified-platinum album Native followed in 2013, featuring the No.1 hit and 33 million plus-selling single “Counting Stars,” along with a worldwide tour. OneRepublic released Oh My My, their fourth full-length album in 2016. During the spring of 2019, the band released “Start Again” ft. Logic, a song featured on the soundtrack for the Netflix drama 13 Reasons Why and “Connection,” which was part of FCA’s Summer of Jeep campaign. OneRepublic has amassed 5B streams on Spotify to date. OneRepublic’s newest tracks, “Rescue Me,” “Somebody To Love,” “Wanted,” “Didn’t I,” and “Better Days” from their upcoming album, Human, are out now.


Bob Saget

Yes, Bob Saget has starred in many successful television shows, including two of the most family-friendly shows network TV has ever produced ("Full House" and "America’s Funniest Home Videos"), but he’s also an out- of- his- mind stand-up comedian for over 30 years. From his 2014 Grammy-nominated stand-up special, “That’s What I’m Talkin’ About” to his scene-stealing cameos in "Entourage," and "The Aristocrats," it’s always effective as Saget embraces his dark side. In January 2016, Bob completed a 9-week run on Broadway as Pastor Greg in the Tony-nominated play, Hand To God, and his first book, Dirty Daddy, is a New York Times Best Seller with Vanity Fair calling it, “hilarious and at times heartbreaking.” Bob can be seen in the hit Netflix series, Fuller House, and he directed and stars in the independent film, Benjamin, available on Hulu and Redbox. In 2019, Bob hosted the new CMT TV series, Nashville Squares, still airing on CMT. His new hour stand-up special, Zero To Sixty, is streaming on Amazon Prime and available to rent or buy on Amazon, iTunes, and many other platforms. Bob will be back on tour with a new hour of material when it is safe for everyone. In the meantime, Bob is developing a few projects and spending much of his time creating his new podcast, Bob Saget’s Here For You.

Do you believe someone can read your mind? Lior Suchard can. He can delve into your innermost thoughts and know what you are going to say even before you do. Lior Suchard is considered the world’s greatest mentalist and has performed all over the globe. His mind-blowing performances of miraculous prediction, thought influencing, and startling mind reading have made him the most sought-after mentalist in the world. His list of fans stretches from A-list Hollywood celebrities to heads of state and notorious businessmen.

More recently, Suchard appeared on The Late Late Show with James Corden with guests like Harry Connick Jr., Alice Eve, America Ferrara, and Jeremy Piven.

Suchard performs his comical and innovative mind-reading feats in major international events and is also wanted in exhibitions and professional conventions of the largest Fortune 500 companies around the world. He developed a special concept of “infotainment” where he creates tailor-made acts to convey the company’s messages and brand.
