Brooke Humphries: Dance Mogul, Dallas Music Lover, NASCAR Fan

We've looked in on Brooke Humphries before, and we'll probably do it again, but we wanted to check in with her from an angle of local support this time.

Humphries, in addition to owning stakes in both Barcadia locations, Beauty Bar, It'll Do Dance Club and new coffee joint Mudsmith, also owns half of Full Access Entertainment, which does some pretty big EDM shows, and always employs some great local talent in the field. It's a relationship that doesn't hurt our local DJs at all, considering she also needs some good local talent to spin at her clubs here and there. She works tirelessly, has a blast doing what she does, and somehow also manages to nourish a ferocious addiction to all things happening at Texas Motor Speedway.
