This years entertainment provided by Rascal Martinez
” Martinez is a singer/songwriter from Sutherland, Nebraska, who admits he never sat down and planned a career as a musician. Instead, he made a hobby of playing at local weddings and parties and eventually started traveling around the country to play. Soon, he noticed people seemed to like what he was doing, and realized he could actually make a living out of his passion.
“One day, I just realized how much I loved it,” Martinez said. “I can’t live without music.”
Martinez grew up surrounded by music. His parents would play records from the ‘50s and ‘60s, and he would pretend to play along until finally one of his brothers showed him a few chords. At 14 years old, he was hooked. Immediately after getting his own guitar, he started writing music and teaching himself to play the soundtrack to “Juno,” his favorite film at the time.
“Rascal continues to develop and amaze me and his audiences,” said his aunt, Catherine Martinez. “He has a genuine charm about him that makes for great chemistry with the audience.”
