She’s been compared to Janis Joplin, Fiona Apple and Amy Winehouse. He’s been mentioned in the same sentence as Jimi Hendrix, John Mayer and Stevie Ray Vaughn.

Together, siblings Jocelyn and Chris Arndt form a powerful musical duo whose new album, Edges, is a dazzling collection of dynamic blues-rock songs that debuted at #17 on’s Top 30 (and currently sits at #14 after five consecutive months on the chart) and has cracked the FMQB Top 200 Albums and Singles List, bolstered by airplay across the United States. Featuring guest appearances by G. Love and Gov’t Mule’s Danny Louis, the critically-acclaimed album is a raw, soulful throwback to the rock of the ’60s and ’70s.

Jocelyn and Chris have been featured in Paste Magazine, Relix, The 405 and Baeble Music, and the pair has performed across the country at venues and locales including the Sundance Film Festival, Mountain Jam Music Festival, SXSW, The Viper Room and Hotel Cafe in Hollywood, and Milwaukee Summerfest, where they were voted “Best Band” on the emerging artist stage.

In the world of barbecue, few men have accomplished more than Kansas City’s renowned Baron of BBQ, Paul Kirk. The recipient of over 530 cooking and barbecue awards, Kirk has won seven world championships, including the prestigious American Royal Open, the world’s largest barbecue contest.

Kirk, who has been barbecuing since the 1980s, was named the Chef of the Year by the Greater Kansas City ACF Chapter in 1990 and is a member of the KCBS Barbecue Hall of Fame. He prides himself on his ability to concoct a recipe on the spot, never test it and still win any contest.

In 1997, Kirk released his first book, Paul Kirk’s Championship Barbecue Sauces: 175 Make-Your-Own Sauces, Marinades, Dry Rubs, Wet Rubs, Mops and Salsas (now in its 19th printing), and his most recent publication, America’s Best BBQ – Homestyle: What the Champions Cook in Their Own Backyards, was released in 2013. In addition, he has written numerous articles for publications such as the KCBS Bull Sheet, The National Barbecue News, The Goat Gap Gazette, Fine Cooking and Chili Pepper Magazine.
