For the past thirteen years Jody has honed her skills as a “sit down” comic working as a “Conducktor” for Boston Duck Tours.  She created and developed her tour guide persona;  Penny Wise, a tongue-in-cheek, saucy, southern belle. She has performed before an audience over 4000 times and still packs a fresh punch! She has been a three time contestant in the Boston Comedy Festival and Finalist in the Funniest Comic in New Hampshire Contest.  Impishly perverse, her style is thoughtful, yet edgy; touching on age, divorce, and being raised by wolves. 

Houston bernard band

Houston has released a series of singles, EPs and albums. In 2013 he released his debut self-titled EP, and then followed up with his first full length album Knockin’ Boots in 2015.
