Nick Jonas, part of the well-known group “The Jonas Brothers”, is known for way more than just his brotherly love and musical personality. In fact, Nick has also starred in films, started a family of his own, and launched a successful solo career before the recent comeback of the “Jo Bro’s”. As if these milestones weren’t impressing enough, Jonas spoke out recently on his long-term dream of creating a Broadway production! Nick mentions how he grew up with a deep love for Broadway, which is proven through the many Broadway playbills and productions he is featured in. In fact, he has been part of Broadway productions from as early as 1987 and as recent as his role in the 2011 adaptation of “How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying”. As the Jonas Brothers have recently made their big comeback, fans were also excited with Nick’s statement of the potential of his created show being about himself and his band of brothers! This goal for creating a Broadway show comes as no surprise to fans, as it is a dream that many could see becoming a reality. We can’t wait to see what comes out of this dream of his, and will be ready to buy tickets if/when it comes true!!
One thing about the Hudson Valley, is that residents are always giving back to their communities and those within them. One way they do this is through their annual parades and celebrations, with one of them being the Poughkeepsie Pride Parade and Festival! As we are in the beginning of Pride month, this years celebration will be this upcoming Saturday, June 10th. The incredible sponsor list is only part of the many contributions to this pride celebration, as the festivities also include a pride march consisting of community members and volunteers alike. The parade, hosted by Dutchess County Pride Center, will start at noon with marching starting at Main St and ending at Waryas Park. The festival will follow afterwards, with vendors and fun activities for all! And again, Happy Pride Month from the K104 crew!!

The Chainsmokers are back with a catchy new song. With such a deep back catalog, and hits ranging from the tongue-in-cheek “Selfie,” to the mass breakout single “Closer,” the duo have been comfortable taking chances with their music while staying true to the house melodies and beats that launched their career. In the build-up to their latest single, “Self Destruction Mode,” The Chainsmokers shared a clip to social media saying, “They asked for a classic Chainsmokers drop.” While The Chainsmokers don’t miss with their music, they have evolved, and the energy and power of the drop on the new single invokes feelings more like their early works.
As if fans didn’t have enough reasons to love this artist…Ed Sheeran proved once again that he is much more than just an amazing singer and song-writer!

In a recent viral social media video, Paramore’s Hayley Williams is seen being given a friendship bracelet by a fan. The bracelet was said to be in reference to Taylor Swift, with Williams stating that the timing for this gift was very coincidental. As many fans were graced with Paramore as openers for Taylor’s current “The Eras Tour” as an opening act, fans were quick to connect the dots that Hayley might potentially be hinting to a collaboration between herself and Swift for Swift’s upcoming album release. The album “Speak Now (Taylor’s Version)” will be coming out on July 7th, with many fans wondering if Hayley will be featuring on Taylor’s “Better Than Revenge”. Whether or not this collaboration will actually happen is to be determined, but fans are not holding in their excitement at the thought of it! And if this dream feature does happen, we are ready to “hear the applause” from Swifties around the world.
