The Movember Foundation is all about men’s health, with a focus on prostate cancer, testicular cancer, and mental health. Did you know testicular cancer is the young man’s cancer? It’s the most common men’s cancer between the ages of 15 and 40 – and easily treatable if detected early! Teach your boys how to check themselves and dudes, CHECK YOURSELVES! Prostate cancer is the 2nd most common cancer in men next to skin cancer, and almost all cases occur in men over 50. And sadly, 3 out of 4 suicides are men. Talk to the men in your life, and listen to that voice in your head that tells you someone doesn’t seem okay. You might just save a life. Here’s a number to program into your phone: the National Suicide Prevention Lifelife at 1-800-273-8255 (1-800-273-TALK). There’s also Lifelife Crisis Chat at

Plano – Droo Unplugged

Droo’s Peace Crush has been active in the Dallas music scene for well over 15 years. While he began his career playing bass with numerous local & national acts, for the past 8+ years, he’s successfully navigated the local cover music scene, becoming known for his pure, raw vocals, full rhythmic guitar voicing’s, and being able to perform all kinds of pop music from all different styles, genres, and periods. Starting out, he mostly performed solo, but throughout the years, an incredible band has organically formed around him,and now you will often hear 2-4 of them playing out together in bars and venues all over North Texas. Their full sound stems from many various backgrounds, ethnicities, musical styles, and all-around walks of life. Since their musical elements are as eclectic as the Peace Crush-ers themselves, sonically the band is like nothing else that you’ve ever heard before…and because of the extremely diverse cover song selections they’ve performed over the years, their original tunes are a pop-heavy beautiful mix of energetic melodies, sounds, and collaborations that they derive from all these influences.

With the release of his highly anticipated new acoustic album, Reflections, available on iTunes, Renna seems to have broken through to a new plane of existence, exploring the deepest recesses of his heart and soul both lyrically and musically.

Plano – Missing Three Band

Missing 3 happened by accident – the band “Moving Colors”, a 6-piece band was asked to play a venue and there was only enough room to put 3 members on stage, so there it began – “Missing 3” was born!

This is going to be the cherry on top of your week. Come for the music, stay for the craft pizza and beer, including 24 local brews on tap.

Southlake – Velvet Love Box

Velvet Love Box features three veteran musicians from the North Texas area: percussionist/vocalist Brandon Bumpas, guitarist/vocalist Scot Cloud, and vocalist/bassist Neil Schnell. The band formed at Bronco’s Sports Bar in 1997, where they still perform every Thursday night, and over the past fifteen years they have continued to blur the line between “cover” and “original”, creating a niche for themselves. In early 2002 VLB recorded their first EP, “Pilot,” for Texas indie label Aaron Ave. Records. In 2004, 2005, 2007 and 2008 Velvet Love Box was voted Best Cover Band by the readers of Fort Worth Weekly! 

Help us kick-off Velvet Love Box’s return to Taverna Rossa – Southlake. The craft beer will be flowin’ and the artisan pizza will be hot!

Maylee is the soul of Texas and a must see act.
