  Swedish Jam Factory is a dynamic duo, making up and breaking rules as it goes along. Thomas Bergstig and Isaac Middleton met in Memphis at Playhouse on the Square. What started as killing time between scenes, developed into a fascinating art form that defies genre. Pioneering a new hybrid of tap dance and musical expression, they found international fame on Sweden’s Got Talent. Imagine Gene Kelly and Donald O’Connor, frenetically pounding away at the piano, guitar, ukulele, accordion and saxophone, as their synchronized taps provide the percussion. It’s a high-energy, quick-footed, rollicking good time that leaves audiences in awe and dancing in the aisles.

  

Swedish Jam Factory will be playing at The Buckman Performing and Fine Arts Center on Friday, January 31 at 8pm.  Click here to learn more.

Local governments across the United States could perform a simple upgrade to strengthen voters' confidence that they are what they say they are: use websites that end in .gov.

Federal officials control the keys to the ".gov" top-level domain, making it less likely that somebody could get one fraudulently and use it to fool people.

Domains that end in .com or .org, meanwhile, could be set up by attackers to try to intercept users seeking information from real sources.
