Jans Ingbers’ Funk Fellowship kicked off the night right with a funky and soulful set, including an epic four-person drum break midshow, to warm up the crowd. When Pimps of Joytime made their way to the stage following the Fellowship’s performance, they started their set with a few acoustic numbers as a special treat for fans in their hometown. With the group sitting lined up across the stage, they moved through a handful of beautiful acoustic tracks before taking their positions across the stage and moving into a more traditional, funk-heavy Pimps’ set.You can check out a gallery from the evening below, courtesy of Alan Westman.last_img read more

He was a psychology graduate student, according to ABC’s profile of Gwozdz, who used the name “Tyler G” on the show.During the show, Gwozdz earned a one-on-one date with the female star, Hannah Brown.The only mention of him after his departure was on the following episode, when Brown said that Gwozdz “had to leave” during her group date, and that she had been looking forward to getting to know him.Producers of “The Bachelor” said in a statement to “Bachelor Nation,” “We are heartbroken to hear the tragic news of Tyler’s passing today. Our thoughts are with the Gwozdz family and his friends.”last_img read more
