A 2017 Milan High School graduate, Keene is pursuing a career in stand-up comedy and entertainment. His life long dream is to make people laugh.

Entertainment

 
 

STUART BENBOW & ROBIN MONTEROSSO

5:00 PM / North Tolan Street

 

Blending the heart of country music with the rich story telling of folk, and adding a touch of pop to give it some drive, Stuart Benbow writes about the world around him.

Robin Monterosso is a songwriter, penning songs of life and love, death and hate, sorrow and joy. Lyrically driven tunes with a country bent and some kinda personal flair began flowing off of her pen at the age of 47, proof that it's never too late to live your dreams.
