Initially formed by brothers Justin and Jeremy Furstenfeld in 1995, Blue October is a four-piece alternative rock band from Houston, TX. The Furstenfeld's parents, who were the band's managers at the time, negotiated with connections at their local news station and got the channel to feature Blue October on multiple early morning broadcasts. These performances stirred anticipation for the group's debut album, 1998's The Answers, and grabbed the attention of Universal Records, whom the band signed with in 1999. While Blue October had a fairly tumultuous relationship with the label, which subsequently dropped the band before resigning them, it has managed to maintain a solid fan base with its straightforward alternative rock sound full of emotional lyrics. Universal went on to release several of the band's follow-up albums, including the commercially successful Foiled, in 2006.
The Dallas Stars entered the National Hockey League as the Minnesota North Stars in 1967. Prior to the 1993-94 season, the franchise moved south to Dallas. The Stars won back-to-back Presidents' Trophies in 1997-98 and 1998-99. In 1998-99, the Stars not only held the best record in the league, they hoisted their first Stanley Cup in franchise history, beating the Buffalo Sabres in six games.
Ice skating penguins, juggling polar bears and an actual sprinkling of snow in the theatre are just a few of the elements that make "Winter Wonderland" a delightful stage spectacle for kids. Featuring more than 60 handcrafted marionettes, this holiday show transports your young ones' imaginations to the North Pole, where Jack Frost is joined by toyshop elves, singing snowflakes and dancing snowmen. By the time Santa and Rudolph land onstage for the finale, and snow starts falling on your heads, it'll be impossible to ignore the pull of the holiday spirit.

Based out of Fort Worth, Texas, the five members of The Orbans were equally influenced by their upbringing in one of country music's favorite states as they were by the indie rock movement more popular amongst their generation of musicians. The result of these two influential contexts is twangy pop meets indie country. Since its formation in 2005, the group has found an audience for this crossbred sound and has become a favorite on NPR stations and in venues across the country.
