In another appaerance on the Sportsology channel, The FDH Lounge sits down with Opening Day Partners Partner/President/CEO Jon Danos.
Jonathan Boone, global wildlife photographer and researcher, has studied the captive husbandry and propagation of geckos since 1979. His work began at the young age of 14, when he purchased his first geckos from a local pet store and attended monthly herpetological meetings at the Tulsa Zoo. His first geckos included leopard geckos and day geckos of the genus Phelsuma.
Since then, Jon's collection has expanded to include some of the rarest and most obscure geckos in the world. He has travelled globally, with field research emphasis in Central America, South America, the Caribbean, and northern and southern Africa. In addition to his extensive field research, Jon has published numerous articles in popular herpetological journals. He has also assisted other authors by sharing findings as well as photographs from his husbandry experience and field research.
Exploring new possibilities, Jon has pioneered several practices in gecko husbandry, including innovative cage design, nutrition and mimicking seasonal rhythms. To educate and inspire others with interest in reptiles, Jon has spoken at as well as coordinated herpetological conferences. Jon has been the first to successfully breed over 200 species of gecko, and has collectively bred close to 500 gecko species. Among his other major advances was his discovery that Colopus kochii eggs can take almost 2 years to hatch.
In his efforts to further scientific research, Jon has provided nearly two thousand specimen samples to scientists, taxonomists and systematicists around the world. These specimen samples have been used to create documentation on new species, to update documentation on existing species, and to provide new localities and distinguishing characteristics between gecko species.

What series of events unites a few strangers to make music together? Is it a cosmic anomaly or destiny? Jandre Nadal, John Feliciano, Edgar Ramos and JuanMa Font gravitated towards each other because of a shared desire to create intoxicating and sublime music. Since 2009 this intricate sonic workshop has yielded blistering tracks with great depth, melding dreamlike sounds with unheard-of guitar strength, tight bass, high-energy drums and powerful melodic vocals. The upcoming album follows the 2011 EP, 'The Envelope,' which, along with lead single, "Universal You," drew praise from established artists such as Godsmack and Halestorm while receiving weekly spins at SiriusXM Octane, MusicChoice and more. The track was also featured in the motion picture, The Witness (El Testigo). Following the release of 'The Envelope,' Message To Venus made the decision to relocate from San Juan to Miami, Fla. "Puerto Rico is beautiful...it's our home," explained guitarist, John Feliciano. "We play there as often as we can, but in order to expand globally we want to be planted on soil where touring opportunities are more frequent." After being nominated for a Latin Rock Award in the 'Slam Alternativo/Rock' category in 2012, as well as participation in the International Day of Non-Violence, Message To Venus successfully employed the help of fans through a crowdfunding campaign and toured the U.S. in 2013. The quartet is now seeking its dedicated fans' help again to bring their upcoming album, Victims & Villains to the masses. Stay tuned to the campaign page at: https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/help-message-to-venus-release-their-new-album-victims-villains. For more information, visit www.messagetovenus.com
Formed in the mountains of northern Afghanistan, The Gillis Silo evolved from the friendship of classically trained piano player Ben Vige and life-long Singer/Songwriter Caleb Paul who met in the United States Army and served overseas together in Kabul from 2012-2013. Ben and Caleb called upon accomplished and experienced Baton Rouge musicians Jordan Snyder, Jared Daigle, and Karl Boudreaux upon their return home to carefully construct their alternative rock infused country sound.
Since the band's first performance in January 2014, The Gillis Silo has made waves throughout the U.S. with their own brand of music that fans have dubbed "Country on the Rocks". They have had the privilege of sharing the stage with Florida Georgia Line, Eli Young Band, Trace Adkins, Aaron Lewis, Jana Kramer, and Chris Young, and they have an upcoming concert with Easton Corbin in August.
Their single, She's My Hurricane, is in rotation in major radio markets throughout the South and their debut music video was recently picked up by CMT.
In July 2014, The Gillis Silo performed at Country Explosion in Tooele, Utah. They have played iconic venues throughout the South including The Varsity Theatre, The Howlin' Wolf, The Shed BBQ & Blues Joint, Hard Rock Cafe, and the House of Blues.
Their much anticipated debut EP is set for release late summer 2014.
The Gillis Silo proudly endorses and is sponsored by Pearl Drums, Spector Basses, Warmoth Guitars, and Soxfords.
