More Info

Seven-time Billboard charting Margo Rey will grace the stage at The Count Basie Theatre on Thursday, June 8th at 8pm. Margo Rey is a singer, songwriter, producer, arranger and co- founder of the L.A. based independent record label, Organica Music Group which bears the same name as her self-defined musical genre, Organica. The genre can be explained as an unorthodox hybrid of pop music that is rooted in jazz with deep ethno-rhythmic grooves, textural guitars, keys and lush vocals. Margo continues to deliver her array of vibrant and sultry singing talents that easily compliment her gentle and uplifting melodies. Margo is known to combine a variety of organic sounds and pour every bit of emotion into each song she creates. Her alternative pop singles have captured a worldwide audience with her enduring, socially conscious lyrics and her unforgettable, groove oriented musical arrangements.

Ron White: With a glass of Scotch in one hand and a cigar in the other, Ron White has put audiences in stitches on numerous stand-up tour dates, albums, and comedy specials. White rose to stardom while appearing on the Blue Collar Comedy Tour with fellow comedians Jeff Foxworthy, Bill Engvall, and Larry the Cable Guy. He then came into his own with a number of commercially and critically successful comedy albums, tour dates, and stand-up specials.

Texas born and bred, Ron White earned the nickname "Tater Salad" in the Navy for his love of the side dish. When he returned from service, White decided to pursue his dream of becoming a comedian, driving around Texas on tour dates in a Nissan pickup truck. In 1990, he recorded his first comedy album, Tater Salad aka. Busted in Des Moines. After struggling to book tour dates at smaller stand-up clubs, Ron White was discovered by Jeff Foxworthy and invited to join the Blue Collar Comedy Tour in 2000. White's tales of drunkenness and adventures in Texas, told in a laid back style (cue the cigar and Scotch), became a huge hit with audiences.

The exposure brought Ron White hundreds of more high profile tour dates, as well as his second solo stand-up album, Drunk in Public. The album went gold and was soon followed by White's first Comedy Central stand-up special, They Call Me Tater Salad. While the DVD version of the special flew off the shelves, the CD version ended up going multi-platinum. Ron White's next stand-up special came in 2006, titled You Can't Fix Stupid; the album shot to the top of Billboard's Comedy Albums chart and was nominated for a Grammy.

Shortly after the release of his 2009standup special, Behavioral Problems, White formed his own record label with Michael Blakey called Organica Music Group (OMG). The label caters to both emerging and established comedians and musicians, and released White's most recent stand-up video, A Little Unprofessional.

While Ron White may not have as big a presence on television and movies as he once did, he has split his time between stand-up tours and appearing with his wife, singer Margo Rey, who suffers from breast cancer.
