PRICECREW ready for Big-Time

PRICECREW ready for Big-Time

PRICECREW is made up of four brothers from Jacksonville, Arkansas. Philip-24, Zachary-21, Jacob-15 and Caleb-14; Caleb was barely two years old at that first performance but he still knew the right way to move. The crew has been singing and dancing ever since. There is something special going on when four brothers from Arkansas can sing, dance and put on a show the way PRICECREW can.

Throughout the past few years the brothers have grown to understand it takes hard work and dedication to accomplish what their dreams hold. They have played countless venues and are always looking for ways to improve their act, as well as pushing themselves to make the best music they possibly can.

Over the years they have performed at the local festivals and venues, including Riverfest and Magic Springs' Summer Concert Series, gaining popularity throughout Central Arkansas.

Awesome bluegrass, jam-funk-rock show April 23 in Little Rock

LITTLE ROCK — Fans of jambands, funk-rock and traditional bluegrass are all in for a treat this Saturday night as Little Rock's own Runaway Planet and Freeverse take the stage at Stickyz Rock N' Roll Chicken Shack for a double-header that's sure to knock music fans' socks off.

Runaway Planet, whose bluegrass covers and original songs feature everything from Old Crow Medicine Show's popular "Wagon Wheel" to tunes about catching cheating spouses and burning down the farmhouse, has been featured on National Public Radio for Michael Feldman's "Whadl'Ya Know?" as well as having their music featured on NPR's "Car Talk" with bluegrass fans Click and Clack. Their live performance on Michael Jonathan's "WoodSong's Old-Time Radio Hour" on NPR stations was broadcast to millions around the world.

The group is especially proud of their work with AETN in helping produce a documentary of the First Annual Arkansas Acoustic Festival.
