Songwriter Don Clayton composes songs that are raw and emotional, entertaining and honest, much like the human experience. His uplifting, and at times humorous, stories of life, friends, family, love, joy and beauty, pay homage to a lifelong passion for music.
From sentimental ballads to swampy Country Rock romps, Don’s music focuses on themes that all of us intrinsically connect with – love, family, and living in the moment.
And although the subject matter of Don’s songs are enough to connect his music to mass appeal, it’s the unyielding groove – the kind that unknowingly causes foot-tapping and head-nodding – that makes his songs noteworthy.
Jim Arrendell and the Cheap Suits
Jim Arrendell and the Cheap Suits bring the dance party old school style. They cover a wide range of soul and funk from Otis Redding, Bill Withers, James Brown, Al Green, Earth, Wind and Fire and much more. Jim arrendell leads the cast on vocals with Joey K on Drums, Rob Geisler on Bass, Duane Simpson on Guitar and Alex Taub on Keys.

About the World Food Championships
The World Food Championships is the natural progression of the thousands of cooking competitions that take place across the globe each year. Tens of thousands of consumers will compete in a year-long trial to qualify for the World Food Championships. The World Food Championships takes over where Food Network leaves off – in the kitchen and backyard of every American home. Not fake made for TV stars – but everyday real consumers who simply believe they can.

The World Food Championships averages about 25,000 attendees per day throughout the multiple zones and competitions, all while being filmed by Core Media Group/Sharp Entertainment for a six-episode TV series to air on the A&E family of networks in Spring of 2016.
