If you watch Keeping Up with the Kardashians, you might recognize this musician.. or at least his voice. Mikey Wax‘s anthemic “You Lift Me Up” is featured in the promo commercial for KUWK Season 10. The commercial is airing for 8 weeks on E! Entertainment.
This song just passed 5 million Spotify streams, and was featured recently on MTV’s The Real World Skeletons.
RantLifestyle just released an article putting Mikey in the top “15 musicians you’ve never heard of who deserve a grammy,” calling him a “piano prodigy” and “social media phenomenon.” Mikey now hosts over 200,000 social media fans.

Dan St. Germain
Funny-man Dan St Germain is going to hit the LA area (think Pasadena) in April. Now is the time to get tickets for this wild funny man who skewers everyone and everything. More than a little irreverant, nothing is taboo for St. Germain! The date is not St. Germain alone but on a bill with other comedians for an event called COMEDY JUICE at the Ice House in Pasadena on April 16, 2015!
