best of 517 Influencers and Entertainers

We asked our readers about their favorite celebs and entertainers.

Sheri Jones

Our June/July combined issue of     517 Magazine focuses on influencers and entertainers in the region. In this issue’s poll, we asked our readers: Considering any local celebrity, group or entertainers, who are your favorites and why?


It’s no surprise that popular local band Starfarm garnered attention in our poll. The ’80s-inspired band based in East Lansing epitomizes fun and 1980s nostalgia. Performing this summer at everything from Gizzard Fest in Potterville in early June to the Portland St. Patrick Summerfest on June 25, don’t miss an opportunity to see them. Starfarm is also regular performer at the Nuthouse Sports Grill in Lansing. Learn more about the band and see the full performance schedule at

Honorable mentions go to Global Village, Tell Yo Mama and Phil Denny, just a few of the well-known area performers who also received votes.

David Andrews

TV Stars

517 Magazine has featured both David Andrews of WILX TV-10 and Sheri Jones of WLNS TV-6 in the past, and their popularity is no surprise. Both are longtime news anchors that have become Lansing staples. As well as being a trusted news personality, Andrews’ social media presence has become popular for his daily doses of humor through personal memes. Jones has long been known for her work with area Crimestoppers and has been called a guiding light in the community.

Priscilla Bordayo
