YYNOT was the coming together of award winning-Grammy nominated Guitarist/Songwriter/Producer Billy Alexander (John Waite, FEEL, Ron Blair-Tom Petty) and Florida based virtuoso bassist Tim Starace. After seeing Bassist Tim Starace post videos of his mind-blowing and accurate Rush bass covers, Alexander approached Starace about forming an online collaboration by creating videos of Rush classics. The videos have grown in popularity and have gained hundreds of thousands of views. Their original videos gaining over 2million views overall on facebook and YouTube. They’ve played to standing room only shows at The Whiskey A Go Go in Hollywood, Gaslamp in Long Beach and others.
Alexander recruited then 19 year old Rocky Kuner after seeing her perform a jaw-dropping version of Deep Purple’s “Highway Star” while she was still in highschool!
Drummer Joel Stevenett came into the fold when a member of a Rush online group suggested he and the band work together. After seeing the world -class drummer perform a Rush drum medley on YouTube it was obvious this was a perfect match!
‘YYNOT’ pride themselves on perfectly accurate representations of the Rush catalog as well as a penchant for releasing “Rush-esque” original material that stands up against some of the strongest progressive/hard rock music out there. They were voted ‘Tribute Band Of The Month” this year by RushCon. Their originals have already garnered national airplay as well as in Canada. Their last show in March 18th at the Eau Gallie Civic Center in Melbourne Fla. was sold out!
YYNOT’s live shows are designed to take the fans on a journey back in time as well as deliver a fresh new spark and bring back the power and majesty of hard rock that the fans have an undeniable hunger for.

Red Butte Garden
Salt Lake City, UT
We Six Friends met as volunteers working for the Utah Artists 2002 show, a juried exhibit displayed alongside the 2002 Winter Olympics. Having since developed our own skills in various artistic mediums, we enjoy interpreting and celebrating the patterns, textures and joys of the natural world. We employ oils on canvas (and cigar boxes!), encaustic on paper, mixed media, and found objects for sculpture.

No skills needed for this. Join us for this fun and exciting opportunity. We will show you step-by-step instructions on how to cut glass, pattern preparation, foiling, soldering in order for you to complete your first stained glass art.
During this nine-week workshop, we will be learning the rich tradition of Ottoman Turkish stained glass or Vitray. All of us are familiar with stained glass windows in churches and buildings, and it may be a surprise to see the wealth of this artform in historical Turkish architecture.
We will start with the history of this beautiful art form in Turkey and its impact in the West, learn how to develop the geometries of traditional craftsmanship which were kept secret in European guilds for generations – using the same tools they did - and learn how to design our own traditional Turkish Islamic geometric and floral patterns.
We will be building at least three Vitray projects in the traditional manner, closing the ninth week with our own exhibition and reception - critiqued by that rarest of rare birds, a Utah Governor’s Mansion Artist Award winner who is an expert stained glass designer and craftsman.
So come and learn with us – the class is taught by Andrew Kosorok, an accomplished stained glass artist and designer who taught at BYU and has over thirty years of experience.
3rd Friday of the month, 6:00-9:00 pm (except in December, when it's the 1st Friday.)
Galleries across Salt Lake are open for the public to meet artists and browse the exciting and thriving visual arts market in Salt Lake City. The event, as always, is free. Some sponsors offer special discounts and rates for those who participate in Gallery Stroll.

By gathering galleries and other businesses to promote visual art, we strive to stimulate interest and investment in an ever-growing local visual art community through this FREE public event. Come join us on the 3rd Friday of each month (except in December when it's on the 1st Friday). In May we facilitate the Gallery Roll as a part of National Bike Month.
Southern rock icons Lynyrd Skynyrd will be hitting the road one last time this summer. Your chance to experience their Last of the Street Survivors Farewell Tour with special guest Bad Company is September 20th at USANA Amphitheatre!
Bridger Folk Music Society presents Tony Furtado. Tony Furtado is an indie record label’s dream artist. He has lived primarily on the road for the last two decades. He is gregarious, engaging and entertaining, on and off stage. He’s been called a genius on banjo and slide guitar, and his own creative interpretation-hybrid of Americana and indie folk/rock is engaging and captivating. Furtado has often been compared to Ry Cooder and Paul Simon in his latest albums as he guides his attention to detail and proclivity for traditional music into the pop framework. Onstage, whether playing with a band or solo, he owns the room, mixing stories of his travels with musicianship that is off the charts.

Meek florist Seymour stumbles across a new breed of plant he names 'Audrey II' - after his coworker crush. This R&B-singing carnivore promises unending fame and fortune... until Seymour discovers the plant's plans for global domination!
This eerie, boppy, and strangely hilarious musical horror-comedy is made 500% cooler under the direction of Heber's own David Liddell Thorpe. His strong background in farce, Shakespeare, film, and theatrical story-telling combined with the intimacy of Timpanogos Valley Theatre in the Historical Heber Social Hall will make for a unique night of dynamic theatre!
"A deviously delicious Broadway and Hollywood sci-fi smash musical, Little Shop Of Horrors has devoured the hearts of theatre goers for over 30 years. Howard Ashman and Alan Menken (Disney's The Little Mermaid, Beauty And The Beast, and Aladdin) are the creative geniuses behind what has become one of the most popular shows in the world.
"The meek floral assistant Seymour Krelborn stumbles across a new breed of plant he names "Audrey II" - after his coworker crush. This foul-mouthed, R&B-singing carnivore promises unending fame and fortune to the down and out Krelborn as long as he keeps feeding it, BLOOD. Over time, though, Seymour discovers Audrey II's out of this world origins and intent towards global domination!" - Music Theatre International
