6pm to 6:30pm--- Jack Thorne
Jack is a North San Fernando Valley native who had the benefit of an older brother living in the room next door to him while growing up. Thanks to this, his childhood soundtrack while playing with his toys included Elvis Presley, the Beatles, the Rolling Stones, and Led Zeppelin to name a few. He claims music as his true addiction even more than brownie bites!
Jack began singing along to Elvis and Beatle records at age 9 and picked up the guitar at age 17. He has been performing in bands, duets, in musical theatre, and solo, on and off, for over 25 years. Jack also writes his own songs but takes his greatest pleasure in interpreting other's material in his way.
Jack is currently working with fellow Beatlemaniac, Mark Brainard, in their project called "Jealous Minds". They are currently performing the entire U.S. version of "Rubber Soul" around the L.A. area and are calling it "Rubber Soul: Re-Souled".

In 1996-1998 she made the FOLKDJ-L top 50 twice, and in 1999 two of Sandy’s CDs were incorporated into the Smithsonian Folkways catalog, in addition to the Fast Folk recordings she made for the two Los Angeles compilation albums. Said Sheri Stanley in Folk Music magazine, “Sandy’s music will move you, sometimes to anger, sometimes to tears and sometimes to stomping your feet.”
In 2005 Sandy wrote and compiled the book A Place Called the Bla-Bla Café, which is an insider’s look at Hollywood talent showcasing against the historically political backdrop of the 1970s.
