“AETN Presents: On the Front Row” is part of AETN Arts Fridays, featuring world class arts and

culture programming and locally produced series.

Kevin Kerby + Battery features entertaining, energetic rock ‘n’ roll and the honest songwriting style

of lead singer, Kevin Kerby. The band often helps bridge the gap between themselves and the audience

with their witty banter and humble demeanor. Battery consists of Geoff Curran, guitars; Joshua Bentley,

bass; and Marcus Lowe, drums and backup vocals.

Kerby’s previous band Mulehead was a popular staple of the Central Arkansas independent music

scene in the ’90s and was featured in the 2007 documentary film “Towncraft” about the vibrant

underground music movement during that period.

Kevin Kerby + Battery is signed to Little Rock-based Max Recordings.

Jones: A Good Man” is a co-production of A Good Man Film LLC, Kartemquin Films, Independent

Television Service (ITVS), Thirteen’s “American Masters” for WNET, and Media Process Group, with

“Bill T. Jones is so intense,” Lawrence Hamilton, cultural affairs director at Philander Smith College

    We first wrote about Graham Gordy's forthcoming Cinemax show "Quarry" in April 2013 — shooting was set to begin that summer, and the Times noted, "2013 might just turn out to be Graham Gordy's year." As it turned out, things took a little longer than we predicted, but now that production has wrapped (as of August) and a teaser trailer has arrived, I think we can say with even greater confidence: 2016 might just turn out to be Graham Gordy's year. /more/
