Ike Reilly is a musician, bard, traveling minstrel, and truth teller from Libertyville, IL. His mien is as much Carl Sandburg and Studs Terkel as it is Willie Nile and Chuck Prophet.

Paul Bentz is not The Suns In 4 guy, but since he’s the only person I know in Arizona, he may as well be. I also think he could take on two mooks trying to get dealt with in the stands at a game.
