Justin Wells is a veteran of the Lexington music scene, with local enthusiasts remembering him as the front man for the now defunct Fifth on the Floor. While the group broke up in 2015, Wells has still made his mark in central Kentucky and beyond in his new solo project, releasing his debut record “Dawn in the Distance” last August.
The record was recorded in Lexington with Duane Lundy at Shangri-la Productions, who’s worked with several other local musicians including Vandaveer, Debraun Thomas and Eric Bolander. The momentum behind “Dawn in the Distance” has taken Wells touring across the country, with upcoming dates in Texas, Missouri, and in nearby Irvine, Kentucky at the Moonshiner’s Ball from May 19-21.

The purpose of this event is to allow a space for greek councils to socialize and mingle among each other and with other students. This event allows Greek Organizations to participate in strolling. Members of the National Panhellenic and United Greek Council at the University of Kentucky were present.
Strolling was started in 1920 by the Divine 9, many have differing opinions as to who originally started strolling, though much historical respect is given to Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority Inc. for beginning the tradition. Strolling is also known as a “party walk.” Strolling combines dancing to music, spoken word and stepping.
Strolling functions such as these have members of their respective Greek organizations line up one after another. Similar to saluting, they begin to move forward in the same dance motions, or many times alternating dance moves. As of 2014, there are over 60 sororities and 50 fraternities with the highest rate of expansion happening with Latin American Greek Life organizations.
You the viewer will get to experience everything in the middle of it all.
