German immigrants continued this art in the New World. Pennsylvania Germans used it as a medium for valentines, marriage and birth records, and love letters.

There are so many things to look forward to in a new week. New experiences, another week of living, and a new music spotlight post! This week will be a real treat. This group is fresh as of February of this year. Introducing Music Spotlight featuring The Seventh Sunset.
The Seventh Sunset is a new duo born out of Chambersburg in Franklin County. It is composed of two members: Tony Eckenrode on guitar and Josh Rayner as the vocalist for the group. Josh Raynor was formerly a member of the band Pabrael and also represented vocals. The pairing between Tony’s articulate guitar work and Josh’s gentle, yet powerful, soulful voice is undeniably entrancing. Tony gracefully plays beautiful finger-picked melodies and harmonies on his guitar while adding the necessary percussive rhythms to carry songs through with a groove. Then comes Josh’s voice like a hand walking you through a picture. The Seventh Sunset is certainly a killer combo of two fine musicians.
Because they are a bit fresh, The Seventh Sunset does not have very many gigs lined up for the public. However, that soon will change as more cover videos and live-stream videos are presented. If you or some one you know is looking for entertainment, be sure to pick these guys up because they are worth it like so many of the other featured Music Spotlight acts.
To catch their next live-stream or cover video, find The Seventh Sunset on facebook and like them! Click here for a video of the duo covering The Cure’s “Love Song”. Enjoy!

If ever there was a comedian/ magician to be seen, it is Kevin Lee. Kevin’s unique combination of comedy, magic and juggling leaves audiences both in awe and in stitches. Lee, has appeared on scores of national television stations on shows such as “Showtime at the Apollo”, HBO’s “Def Comedy Jam”, and Jamie Foxx’s “Uptown Comedy Club”, to name a few. Lee was also voted “Washington DC’s Funniest Comedian” by Washingtonian Magazine. Kevin headlined here at the Capitol Theatre last season and absolutely convulsed the patrons with loud, sustained laughter!
Originally from Portland, OR, now living in Maryland, Jim Meyer walks this world as a Comedy Highlander, and has been called the greatest force of laughter the Earth will ever know. He has been called a ray of light in a world overcome with darkness. He’s also been called Mike by the Chinese woman at the sub shop who never remembers his name.
Rahmein Mostafavi charms crowds with comic timing and charisma developed throughout two decades of live performance. He addresses social and political topics with a combination of satirical and observational comedy, leaving audiences with a greater sense of purpose, sex appeal and the occasional leg cramp. Rahmein entered the stand-up world after working as a longtime cast member of “Shear Madness,” the acclaimed Kennedy Center improv/comedy whodunit. His natural joke writing ability, combined with his acting chops, has won him rave reviews in both the Washington area and around the country.
