Corporate Entertainment events vary in size, purpose, and mood. On some occasions, companies invite all employees to attend conferences or parties. Large organizations host some parties that consist of thousands of invitees. Other events are for select employees only.
Many organizations hold annual banquets, oftentimes during the holiday seasons. Company sponsored bashes that include food, drinks, and dancing serve as holiday gifts to employees. Other Corporate Entertainment Events are designed to improve worker performance. Companies hold leadership and sales seminars that are both educational and fun. Moreover, businesses celebrate employee and team achievements by throwing parties. Nothing builds morale like treating high-performing workers to excellent food, drinks, and entertainment.
Different corporate Entertainment events call for varying atmospheres. Sometimes, business leaders want events to remain professional and company-oriented. While senior managers want people to enjoy themselves, they still want people to recognize certain events as being work-related. Other festivities have the opposite purpose. Sometimes it's healthy and productive for employees to forget about work for a few hours and have fun together.
The Difficulty of Planning Corporate Entertainment Events
People's tastes vary significantly from one person to another. What one individual considers fun may completely bore someone else. For example, some people consider jazz music to be artistic and intellectual. Others call it elevator music. Some people love playing sports. Other people don't have an athletic bone in their collective bodies. Workplaces are incredibly rich with diversity, making event planning very difficult and stressful.
Oftentimes, the burdens of planning corporate Entertainment events rest on the shoulders of people who lack the expertise needed to orchestrate great parties, conferences, and retreats. Star employees may produce great business results, but not all of them are experts on how to plan successful social functions. Besides, how many busy professionals have the time to plan parties?
Common planning blunders include hiring speakers who offend certain factions within workforces, not offering enough varieties of foods, and booking entertainment that certain audiences consider inappropriate. Poor planning results in disappointment. It takes considerable time to plan quality events that fit within budgets.

Murali Coryell is
known to some as jazz guitar legend Larry Coryell's son, to others he is known as "blues master". Other people call him the "soul man," and yet he can also be seen performing salsa or singing the American and Canadian national anthems at sporting events. The truth is Murali Coryell is all these things and more. One thing everyone can agree upon is that Murali has the voice which invigorates the music whatever type of material he is performing as one fan wrote, "has no explanation, but none is needed once you hear and understand."
Murali Coryell was born in NYC October 27, 1969. During Murali's infancy the family moved around a lot living for a time in Scotland with bassist/vocalist Jack Bruce and in California with guitarist Carlos Santana. When Larry's career took off the family moved to a farm in Doylestown, PA where Murali's brother, Julian, was born in 1973. Then moved to Wilton, CT in 1975 and eventually settling in Westport, CT where Murali graduated from Staples High School in 1987. Vocalist, guitarist, songwriter, producer and record label owner Murali Coryell graduated with honors in 1992 from S.U.N.Y. New Paltz. There he studied languages and earned a B.A. degree in music theory and composition. Murali is fluent in French and Spanish and is able to read and speak many languages including Russian and Arabic. He also has a background in acting and theater.
Among his first professional jobs were stints as guitarist for folk singer Richie Havens in 1993 and then as guitarist and sometime vocalist for blues man Duke Robillard in 1994. Shortly thereafter, Murali signed his first record deal which resulted in the debut CD "Eyes Wide Open" (released in 1995 and later re-issued in 2000) featuring songs written by Murali influenced by R&B of the 1960's and 70's. Mark Scheerer for CNN's "Showbiz Today" was impressed with a live performance and did a piece on Murali which aired April 15, 1997.
Like his mentor Miles Davis, Murali has long had his own melodic and harmonic concept which has been shaped by his own unique musical and life experience. For this reason Murali is credited as producer or co-producer on all recordings that bear his name. Murali would rather not be categorized but would prefer to be recognized as an artist, who as one fan posted on Amazon.com "...has unparalleled rhythm and harmony sense no matter what form of music he touches." 1999 saw the release of "2120" (CZYZ Records). Executively produced by Marshall Chess (formerly of Chess and Rolling Stones Records), "2120" garnered a glowing three star review in Rolling Stone and drew comparisons to Jimi Hendrix and Otis Redding in a New York Times review. In 2000 the release of "The Coryell's" (Chesky Records) chronicled the long awaited collaboration with father Larry and brother Julian in an acoustic exploration of blues and jazz.

SLAVE "Family of Funk"
the reunion has started with the coming together of SLAVE, AURRA, STEVE ARRINGTON’S HALL OF FAME BAND, DEJ’A and YOUNG AND COMPANY.
I guess you are wondering how all of these groups came out of the SLAVE Organization. Well let me start from the beginning. Trumpeter Steve Washington formed the group SLAVE in Dayton, Ohio in 1975. Vocalist Floyd Miller teamed with Tom Lockett Jr., Charlie Bradley, Mark Adams, Mark Hicks, Danny Webster, Orion Wilhoite, and Tim Dozier. Vocalists Steve Arrington and Starleana Young came aboard in 1978 with Curt Jones and Charles Carter joining later that year. Their first big hit was the thumping single "Slide" in 1977 for Cotillion, where they remained until 1984. Their best tracks were lyrically simple, but the arrangements and rhythms were intense and hypnotic.
Steve Washington was the young man from East Orange New Jersey who was known as the fearless leader. He had met Starlena Young and Curt Jones playing in a club with a band called Starchild named after Starlena. This is after the release of the great hit “Slide”. Steve had a vision to put other groups together. He started out by letting Curt Jones and Starlena Young do studio time along with Slave. Steve also started working with and producing groups from the New Jersey area. He soon discovered that he had hit on a northern sound that could be part of his Slave family. But, he was not finish yet. Later on that year he was introduced to Starlena’s brother Billy Young and his co partner Mr. Buddy Hankerson. At the time Billy Young and Buddy Hankerson were going under the name flash flood. The group sound was pure funk from the city streets. Steve came to them with his family project and wanted them to be included. Who could say no, he was teaching us the tools we would need to become the funk artists we are today. We had come full circle, and were ready to take on the music world as SLAVE and as solo projects.
Steve Washington approached a lot of record labels after the success under the Slave umbrella. But, the record labels didn’t want to mess with the hit making machine. So, Steve Washington released all of his under studies on to the music world and the rest is history. Every one under his family began to have and impact on the music world as never seen before. Hit after hit after hit, and when the record companies realized what they had let slip threw there hands it was to late. Because all that Steve Washington said would happen, and did happen on a major level. Young and Company gold recording group, Dej’a gold recording group, Aurra gold recording group, Steve Arrington’s Hall Of Fame multi gold recording group. We were touring the world and the skies were ours.
But, after all of the gold records with SLAVE and solo projects we still missed our home roots. We all started calling each other and talking about getting back together, not just for us, but for the fearless leader Steve Washington. But, before we hit the stage one more time we needed to reach out to the fearless leader. We had to get his blessings to make it happen.
Well folks, Its official, he gave SLAVE “family of funk” the go ahead. Now we are set to start our world tour. When you come to a SLAVE “family of funk” show, you will get the best of SLAVE in all of its evolution, and we will be honoring the young man from East Orange NJ, Mr. Steve Washington and his vision for the Funk!!!
The Kings of Classic Rock
“Let me introduce the band. . . .”
They aren’t household names. . . . but they’ve shared the stage with lots of them. You’ve definitely seen or heard one or more of these guys at some point, either in concert, on TV, or on a CD or DVD. For over 25 years the members of The Kings Of Classic Rock have played for many of the great legends in rock, both in concert and in the studio.
They’ve toured and/or recorded with bands such as Iron Butterfly, The Animals, Edgar Winter, Sheryl Crow, The Fixx, Tears For Fears, Paul Revere and The Raiders, Vanilla Fudge, Genesis, Chuck Berry, Meatloaf, Percy Sledge, Lita Ford, Peter Gabriel, Olivia Newton John, Spencer Davis, Gary Myrick and The Figures, Loverboy, Buddy Miles, Manhattan Transfer, Thelma Houston, Jennifer Love Hewitt, DeBarge, Sugarloaf, Bobby Kimball and Simon Phillips (Toto), The British Rock Symphony, Brand X, Glenn Hughes (Deep Purple), Robbie Krieger (The Doors), Eddie Van Halen, Steve Lukather (Toto), Brian Auger, Jonatha Brooke, Glenn Shorrock (Little River Band), Dwight Twilley, Walter Trout, Eric Sardinas and more.
Everybody wants to rule the world
The Kings Of Classic Rock met while playing for Eric Burdon and The Animals, and a strong musical bond was forged. After years of very successful worldwide touring, the guys felt that somehow they had to stay together rather than go their separate ways and end up playing as hired guns for other artists as they had done for so many years.
The Kings Of Classic Rock was created to play the very best songs from each of their former bands and create an irresistible set, as much fun to listen to as it is for them to play, and make it appealing to anyone who is a fan of rock music from the 60’s, 70’s and 80’s.
interest in music began early and by the time she was twelve, she was playing eight instruments— her favorite being the piano. As a teen, she began performing in some of Chicago’s hippest clubs. The word spread that a young, vibrant talent had emerged. Soon after, Chi made her stunning overseas debut when she starred as guest star of the USA at the International Rock Festival before 50,000 people in Rio de Janiero. She ‘tore the house down’ with her electrifying vocals and introspective songs. She returned to the States and immediately signed with Columbia Records.
Her premier release simply entitled “Chi Coltrane” quickly climbed up the charts on the strength of the monster hit single “Thunder and Lightning”. By summer’s end, the track had reached the Top Ten worldwide, selling millions of copies. Following an extensive tour schedule, Chi returned to the studio and 1 1/2 years later released her next album “Let It Ride”. The reviews were extraordinary! With her exceptional songwriting, powerful piano playing and unmistakable voice, when was touted the “Queen of Rock”, the female Elton John and natural successor to Janis Joplin. Rolling Stone Magazine described Chi as a “rip-snorting female vocalist/composer/producer whose performances are nothing less than searing.” The San Francisco Chronicle said that being a singer, songwriter and musician was not exactly lunhearad of, “but she is also very good at all three and has two things going for her beyond talent; an engrossing urgency in her voice and a distinctive presence and beauty.” Chi began making guest appearances on numerous Network TV specials, including NBC’s “The Tonight Show”.
Chi toured extensively in the USA developing a loyal core of dedicated fans. This success soon translated itself overseas. Abroad, the impact of her music was overwhelming with sold out performances and multiple Top Ten hits. In Germany, Switzerland, Austria and the Netherlands, she was voted Top Female Artist for two consecutive years.
With the recent release of “Chi Coltrane’s Golden Classics” on the Sony label, Coltrane connects with music lovers everywhere.
Chi’s lifetime work has garnered many awards and accolades, both here in America and aborad, including the coveted European Gold Hammer and Silver Hammer for top Female Artist. She held the #1 position in the Musik Express Popularity Poll. In addition, Chi was recently voted one of the Top 50 Musicians of the Century. In 1999 Chi was honored by the 18th Annual Music Industry at their Annual Pre-Grammy Celebration in Los Angeles for her achievements in the field of music.
THAT THING YOU DO
"The One Hit Oneder Review"

STARRING Scott Rogness and Rick Elias -- the original artists that wrote and
performed on the That Thing You Do Movie Soundtrack!
a collaboration of celebrated musicians that plays from the rich songbook of its legendary forefathers Jefferson Airplane and the original incarnation of Jefferson Starship, prevails as one of the most critically acclaimed touring acts today. Their hits include, from both Jefferson Airplane, and Jefferson Starship, "Somebody to Love," "White Rabbit" "Caroline," "Miracles," and "Count on Me". Steeped in the fantastic realms of science fiction and the contemporary American shadow land, Jefferson Starship features a stellar cast of old and new players, including songwriter/guitarist/vocalist Paul Kantner, vocalist Marty Balin and bassist Jack Casady, all of whom were crucial in developing the renowned "San Francisco Sound" that changed the course of pop music forever.
was the Co-Founder, Front Person, Leader, Guitarist, Songwriter and co-Producer of one of the biggest Funk/Pop/R&B acts, “War”. Howard competed head-to-head with Earth, Wind & Fire, and regularly bettered them on the charts. War was in the same league as big-time R&B acts like Stevie Wonder, Aretha Franklin, Marvin Gaye, and Diana Ross.
Where there was very few before, Howard Scott, with the rest of the band, started out as an international ethnically integrated act led by English blues rocker, ex-Animal, Eric Burdon. They rose to fame on hits like “Spill the Wine”, “Low Rider”, “Why Can’t We be Friends”, and “Slippin’ into Darkness”, “The World is a Ghetto” and “Cisco Kid” just to name a very few. Burdon primed the band then left after completing a couple albums.
Influenced early on by blues masters such as Howlin’ Wolf, Muddy Waters and Jimmy Reed. Howard’s success is only enhanced by his purely emotional connection with the audience. War’s rich harmonies and rump-shaking grooves rounded out the popular sound.
Scott’s spontaneous chemistry has given birth to most of War’s greatest songs. One day Howard Scott was on his porch playing his Fender when he started singing, “Cisco Kid was a friend of mine,” and the rest, as they say, is history.
Howard Scott’s music has sold more than 80 million copies worldwide!!!!
Howard Scott on stage was the main motivator for the band War. Scott took a leading role in the production and writing for the band His approach was far-sighted and idealistic. Understandably, most of his tunes were credited to the whole band. Listen to any of War’s albums or songs to discover Howard Scott’s genius. It’s his soul-drenched voice belting out the lead vocals on most of War’s greatest songs and it’s the funky punch of Howard Scott’s guitar that often ignites the crowd. Howard’s lyrics were sometimes political in nature (in keeping with their racially integrated lineup), but his music had a sunny, laid-back vibe about it emblematic of their Southern California roots, which helped keep the groove loose. In fact, many of his studio songs were edited together out of longer improvisations.
Anyone who has experienced the catharsis of Howard Scott’s live shows knows that his songs are much more than a catalogue of platinum records and hits. With Howard’s ability and chemistry, he could build a Latin tinged groove like a force of nature and take it to the depths of Funk, Soul, R&B, and Jazz. For Howard Scott, the battle has always been to push the boundaries of popular music, to create a musical expression that is original and straight from the soul and heart, despite the forces of green and selfishness at work in society. His battle still continues today.
This unique chemistry goes back to South Central Los Angeles, when he formed an R&B group called The Creators. Like the street culture from which it was born, The Creators was a hybrid of ethnicities and styles, with a strong Latin influence and an eagerness to break the usual club act restrictions.
They cut their teeth on the R&B club scene backing the likes of Marvin Gaye and Little Willie John. As the band evolved, even more diverse elements were thrown into the pot, jazz percussionist Papa Dee Allen who had played with Dizzy Gillespie joined up, as did blues/pop singer Eric Burdon from the Animals.
“We called ourselves The Creators because years ago when we were at Jefty’s (club in L.A.), we’d be playing, it might be “Knock on Wood,” and we’d start out with the main motif, the head of the music, and then just take off on a jam, go anywhere we wanted to go and come back. When Howard Scott gets on stage now, he’s the same way. He starts off with one song, let’s say it could be “Low Rider”, or “ Sun Oh Sun, next thing you know, The Creators come out, whoops!”
All Day Music, which spawned His first Top 40 hits in "All Day Music" and "Slippin' Into Darkness"; the album itself was a million-selling Top hit. Howard Scott really hit his stride on the follow-up album, The World Is a Ghetto; boosted by a sense of multicultural harmony, it topped the charts and sold over three million copies, making it the best-selling album of that year. It also produced two Top smashes in "The Cisco Kid" (which earned them a fervent following in the Latino community) and the title ballad. Deliver the Word was another million-selling hit, reaching the Top and producing the single "Gypsy Man" and another hit in "Me and Baby Brother." However, it had less of the urban grit that Howard Scott prided himself on; while taking some time to craft new material and rethink their direction, War consolidated their success with the double concert LP War Live, recorded over four nights in Chicago.
Why Can't We Be Friends returned to the sound of The World Is a Ghetto with considerable success. The bright, authentic track hit the Top Ten, as did "Low Rider," an irresistible slice of Latin funk that became the group's first R&B chart-topper, and still stands as one of his best-known tunes. The release of a greatest-hits package featuring the new song "Summer". A double-LP compilation of jams and instrumentals appeared on the Blue Note jazz label, under the title Platinum Jazz; it quickly became one of the best-selling albums in Blue Note history, and produced an R&B-chart smash with an edited version of "L.A. Sunshine."
When disco began, Howard switched labels, moving to MCA for Galaxy, the disco-tinged title track was a hit on the R&B charts, Then completing the Youngblood soundtrack album for the movie of the same name, Next was Outlaw, which was a moderate success, the title track was a Top R&B hit. At he same time "Cinco de Mayo" became a Latino holiday standard. Commercial standing Interest in Howard Scott's classic material remains steady, thanks part to frequent sampling of his grooves by many hip-hop artists, which then fueled Rap Declares War with a variety of rappers and the sampling still continues today.
At that time, it was raw the essence of War that Howard Scott craved to go back into the studio and record Peace Sign in 1993. When he tried to return to the studio, he found that the topography of the industry as well as the dynamics of the group had changed. Howard Scott was very disappointed and frustrated. That led him to stop touring for nearly a decade.
This turn in the industry and in the band just slowed Howard down but only temporarily. To the delight of true fans everywhere. Howard Scott formulated a plan to regain control of his music and independence from WAR, as evidenced by his new single “Ordinary Man”. The raw essence is back! True to Howard’s original mission, he continues to evolve and push the boundaries of popular music. Legally, Avenue Records has prevented Howard Scott from using the WAR name. Remember, the spirit and the talent of WAR was and will always be Howard Scott. He will continue to perform, write and produce his music and fans will continue to come out in droves lending weight to Shakespeare’s proverb, “A rose by any other name would smell as sweet.”
The Brothers of the Sun Band
As Howard Scott considered going back out on the road, he knew he needed a band that would maintain the integrity of his previous efforts, while at the same time being able to tap into the consciousness of today's contemporary music scene. In that search, The Brothers of the Sun Band was created. Ruben Salazar and Nick Bustos (bass and drums, respectively) exemplify that ideal as they are young, hungry and eager to take their music by storm with heart-stomping groove infected rhythms, and a musical sensibility well beyond their years.
In addition to Howard Scott featuring The Brothers of the Sun Band live dates abroad and in the U.S., he has been in the studio recording more original material, which will be independently released in 2005. As Howard Scott says, “I think the kind of music that we’re on the verge of creating has been in the air. It’s been circulating… I’m going back to my spiritual roots and on my way I want to continue to grow. It took ten years for me to come full circle, put band aides on my wounds, put splints on my broken bones, got my egos adjusted, and then get back on the line and start another fight. And the fight is always going to be how you play music, how people like your music, and how people like your spirit when you perform that music. With that philosophy, you’ve got a whole new flavor for going into the 21st century.”

Southern rock veterans
Black Oak Arkansas
have remained a cult band thanks to their raw, primitive energy and the
testosterone-fueled antics of lead vocalist/showman James "Big Jim Dandy"
Mangrum. Named for Mangrum's hometown, Black Oak Arkansas eventually
built up a solid following through incessant touring and enjoyed a run of
ten charting albums between 1971 and 1976. The band also found itself
with a Top 30 single in their raunchy cover of a LaVern Baker R&B hit
called "Jim Dandy to the Rescue," which became Mangrum's signature song.
When album sales dried up, Mangrum re-formed the band with more musically
skilled veteran players and continued to tour.
Following several straightforward Southern rock
albums, the band called it quits in 1980. After recovering from a heart
attack, Mangrum reunited with Reynolds in 1984 for a solo album, Ready as
Hell; The Black Attack Is Back followed two years later. In 1999, BOA
reunited to release The Wild Bunch. (Steve Huey, All Music Guide)

As a boy growing up in Berlin, young
boasted no traumatic childhood experiences and exhibited no particular talents other than making funny faces at strangers and, as Hilby himself describes it, "breezing rhyzmically." Hilby grew up doing all the fun things that people do when they're not in school until they began to call him a grown-up. That's when he packed up his old kit bag, gave his mom a big kiss on the cheek, and set out on a journey that was to lead him all over the world.
Hilby travelled across the European continent to Asia. One of the talents he learned along the way was juggling. From that day forward his social life took a distinct downward turn as countless weeks went by during which he wouldn't listen to anybody but his own inner voice saying, "Come on Hilby, you can do it!" Well, sometimes he did and sometimes he didn't but what a learning spurt it's been ever since! His old "breezing rhyzmically" came in handy as Hilby discovered the ancient art of Chinese JOJO's--where else but in China itself--as well as many other unique performance techniques in his wanderings.
A six month stay in Japan with Buddhist monks and lots of chanting, as well as performing on weekends, polished what was already shining, and gave Hilby the confidence to perform his act in Japanese. He assumes his hosts understood what he said because they have invited him back every year since. Hilby is a truly international performer who is able to communicate through his humor with people of every nationality, size, shape and mental condition.
Hilby creates unforgettable moments for his audiences with such death-defying feats as The New Schrubber Schrubb Schrubb of Doom, in which he juggles an electric powered hedge trimmer, a bowling ball and a flaming beanie baby. Working in the tradition of the legendary silent vaudeville-inspired comedians such as Buster Keaton as well as the great mimes Marcel Marceau and Lecoq, Hilby presents a show without boundaries in which artistry and anarchy are blended into utter hilarity.

a multi-talented singer-songwriter, is one of the most versatile and charismatic performers you'll ever meet. A real showgirl at heart who lives for an audience, she can put sizzle into broadway and life back into the old standards in a "Las Vegas" setting, or silence a noisy lounge with her evocative renditions of "At Last", "Stormy Weather" or "Lover Man". But at the same time, Victoria is a seasoned country artist whose powerful and moving vocals combine the heart and soul of Patsy Cline with the sassiness and energy of Shania Twain.
Victoria is a two-time winner of scholarships to Boston's Berklee College of Music for Jazz. She is also the reigning female champion of the 2004 Canadian Open Country Singing Competition. She has performed for thousands at a Shania Twain concert, at Queen Elizabeth's Golden Jubilee Celebrations and at the Opening Ceremonies of the World Cycling Championships.
As a singer/songwriter, Victoria wrote, produced and toured with her own country music cd, ALL WOMAN GIRL, in 2002/3. As a recording artist, she is "the full package" and she's had the pleasure of working and recording with world class musicians like members of Elton John's band (Davey Johnstone, Nigel Olsen, Bob Birch and Guy Babylon). While Victoria also models, writes and records jingles, does movie work and is a Shania Twain tribute act, her focus is on her singing and performing skills. Her long-term goal: to become an international recording artist and live entertainer. Her favourite place: ON STAGE!
Shelly Rastin, a songwriting and recording partner of music icon Randy Bachman (guitarist and founding member, The Guess Who & Bachman Turner Overdrive), is exploding on the Pop/Country market with a solid CD strongly showcasing her fresh, energetic vocals and clever songwriting.
Rastin was recently awarded COUNTRY ARTIST OF THE YEAR at London Ontario's first annual 2002 Music Awards. This independent artist was up against and won over some stiff competition including country star Beverly Mahood of Lace.
This talented, blue-eyed, blonde-haired beauty was labeled "the next Shania Twain" by Nashville's music row, after she made the trek there in 1999 to record her first demo CD, Am I Dreaming, produced by Mel Shaw, a Canadian music legend and winner of the first Juno Lifetime Achievement Award.
Shelly's 1999 first single release, Am I Dreaming, hit Country radio audiences far and in between, including Moncton, Charlottetown, Winnipeg, London, Chatham, Sarnia and Port Huron, Michigan. The twinning of Rastin and Bachman produced an instant magical connection, which continued to produce new material in 2002. An initial group of 10 tunes includes, Little Fingers, as the first release in 2003. Little Fingers is now in rotation at WSAQ 107 FM, Port Huron, Michigan, and this is just a start!
"I simply love to perform live," says Rastin. "Being able to work up a sweat on stage and give a rawkin performance for an eager audience is one of the best feelings in the world! These are exciting times, and I'm gonna' continue to give my music and my supporters everything I've got, and work hard to wrap them around my 'little fingers.'"

his World Class Tribute to Elvis
"As a producer of music lyrics and seeing Elvis live in Las Vegas along
with over 150 want-to-be Elvis impersonators, I can say that with his
deep tones and rhythm, Michael O'Connor is the only singer that can
come close to a computer match of the notes and pitches of the true
Elvis. Michael can stay on top of notes better than the singers here
in Vegas and his stage costumes are the mirror of what Elvis would
have used on stage here in Vegas. We are truly lucky to have such a
dedicated entertainer as Michael O'Connor. I would highly recommend
Michael O'Connor for any event when dealing with the general public
and more so the fans of the King."
-- Sheldon Hansen, Studio Music Production
"I have interviewed over 100 of the top Elvis tribute artists in the
world and I have to say Michael is the closest I have ever heard or
seen he is so natural it's like Elvis never left."
--John O'Hara- Author of book Elvis and You, 2/1/2003
"The best I have ever seen... has fantastic personality and incredible
voice... Michael is truly gifted and I have seen all of them on the
Islands none of them come even close. Something you really have to
see to believe."
-- Hilton Corporate Hawaiian Resorts, 9/6/2002
"Michael is an extremely talented entertainer and a great person. The
likeness, personality, and voice are incredible. He is so down to
earth. He must have signed 400 autographs, and people actually waited
in line for 20 minutes. "
--Westgate Mall, Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, 8/16/2002
Michael has also been personaly endorsed by the world famous Blackwood brothers gospel
quartet who worked with Elvis. They have only endorsed 2 Elvis Tribute artist's
since Elvis passed on in 1977.
To Whom It May Concern:
The Blackwood's have sung with Elvis himself, sang at his funeral, and his
mother's funeral. Elvis loved the Blackwood's and we loved him.
Michael O'Connor is carrying on the music and the spirit of Elvis.
Michael O'Connor is our friend. I recommend him!
-- Ron Blackwood, Blackwood Brothers, August 22, 2004
I became an Elvis fan at the early age of 6, and at age 10, I had started performing for charities. At age 20, I gave my first professional Elvis tribute show. The owner of the club that I performed
at had expected about 50 people to show. Instead, approximately 877 people had squeezed into it. Considering the capacity was set at 500, I considered it a good start to a career I absolutely enjoy
doing Elvis shows! I don't do it for the money, although it helps. I do it because I love it, along with the pure joy it can bring to people. I feel honored and blessed to be able to pay tribute to
a man whose popularity is as strong now as it ever was.
-- Michael O'Connor

have proudly worn the label "Motown's #1 party group" for more than 40 years. Today under the leadership of original member Sylvester Potts, The Contours are center stage once again. Much of the resurgence in The Contours popularity has to do with the Academy Award winning film, "Dirty Dancing". Their hit "Do You Love Me " was featured in the film and became so popular that it gave birth to an international tour entitled "The Dirty Dancing Tour" starring The Contours, Bill Medley, Merry Clayton and Eric Carmen. That tour lasted 10 months, played to over 2 million people in 8 countries and sold over 10 million copies of "more Dirty Dancing" before it ceased production. During this time, Motown Records was quick to capitalize on The Contours popularity by reissuing their original version of "Do You Love Me" in single and album form. That move paid great dividends for everyone as "Do You Love Me" climbed to #11 on the national charts, making it one of the few recordings in history to hit the top 20 in two different decades.
A Contours show is jam-packed with dazzling choreography, impeccable harmonies and those timeless Motown grooves that everyone knows and loves. You can choose to dance, sing along, or just sit back (if you can) and watch the show as they perform all of their greatest hits together with many of the greatest hits of the 60's and 70's era, as well as a selection of classic songs from the Dirty Dancing Soundtrack.
Several CDs are currently available featuring Contour hits; "The Very Best Of The Contours", "The Contours - The Millenium Collection", and the multi-million selling 4 CD box set "Hitsville USA 1959-1972".
Do you love me
In recent developments, The Contours were featured on the PBS special "Rock, Rhythm & Doo-Wop" performing "Do You Love Me" and "First I Look At The Purse" much to the delight of their legion of fans.
The Contours are in their 5th decade in show business, and are not content to rest on past laurels. They can still "shake 'em down" and stand ready to entertain fans old and new alike.

On March 30, 1966, "Oh How Happy" (Impact-1007) made its public debut
on Detroit radio stations WKNR and WXYZ, as well as Windsor, Ontario's
50,000 watt giant, CKLW. The platter took off like a "shot out of the
blue", and blasted to the #1 spot on all three stations in less than
three weeks. The record spread like wildfire into other major markets
abroad, hitting #12 on the national pop charts, #7 on the R&B
listings, and reaching the top ten in Canada. The overnight success
of "Oh How Happy" caught everyone by surprise, as Nick Marinelli
remembers: "We literally hit the road running. . In addition to a
grueling cross-country tour schedule, the Shades TV appearances
included several spots on Dick Clark's "Where The Action Is", and
Jerry Blavat's Philly-based "Discophonic Scene" teen show. In the
Detroit area, They were regulars on Robin Seymour's "Swingin Time".
July 1966 saw the release of the follow-up single, "Lonely
Summer", (Impact-1014). Coming once again from the pen of
Edwin Starr,. the song showcased a divine blend of
satin-smooth soul and up-tempo pop. Sadly, the record was
hampered commercially by its ill-timed, "late summer"
appearance on the airwaves. Still, "Lonely Summer" caught
on long enough to reach #25 in Detroit, and #72 nationally.
Hot on the heels of "Lonely Summer" came the release of the
third single, "Happiness"(Impact-1015). Both WKNR and
WXYZ in Detroit jumped on the disc instantly, with the song
appearing on both surveys for the first time on September 5,
1966. By all accounts, the record had the ingredients to make
it a quick smash. Unfortunately, "Happiness" fell short of
expectations, stalling at #21 regionally and #78 in Billboard.
On September 17, 1966, the LP, "Happiness Is The Shades Of
Blue", (1mpact-lO1) hit the record store shelves. The album
included the groups three previous singles, along with a
wonderful group-written ballad called, "The Night". A
September 1966 Billboard album review described the
eleven-track offering as, "A well-performed, sure-fire winner".
In 1967, two final Shades Of Blue singles, "How Do You Save
A Dying Love" (Impact-1026) and "Penny Arcade"
(Impact-1028) were issued.
Tthe Shades Of Blue created a sound and style that remains
as timeless today as it was thirty years ago. Each song
evoked a sublime sense of "Happiness" and honesty that
only The Shades themselves were capable of delivering. But
then again, "Happiness" is what The Shades Of Blue are all
Terry Johnson's Flamingos
In 1954, Terry (at age 16) recorded with a Baltimore group called
THE WHISPERS, (not The Whispers of the 1960's), on Gotham
in Philadelphia. He wrote, arranged and sang lead on "Fool Heart" and
co-wrote, arranged and sang lead on "Are You Sorry", released in 1955.
He brought that sound and talent to The Flamingos in 1956 with his
first arrangement of music and vocals on "The Ladder of Love" and
continued with writing and arranging, "Lovers Never Say Goodbye", "Mio
Amore", "At The Prom", "Heavenly Angel", "You, Me and the Sea" and
others, and also with his unforgettably beautiful production and
arrangement of "I Only Have Eyes For You". Terry arranged the music,
vocals and sang tenor on all of the songs on the albums "Flamingo
Serenade", "Requestfully Yours" and "Flamingo Favorites". Terry sang
on the duets such as "Lovers Never Say Goodbye", "Love Walked In",
"Time Was" and "But Not For Me". He also sang the lead on some of
their album cuts such as "I'm In The Mood For Love", "When I Fall In
Love" and "Beside You".
After The Flamingos, Terry formed his own group called
Terry Johnson & The Modern Flamingos. When Nate Nelson left The
Flamingos, he joined
forces with Terry. They recorded under the name
THE STARGLOWS. They
co-wrote and sang "Let's Be Lovers" on the Atco Label, a subsidiary of
Atlantic Records. Terry arranged the background vocals using his
Still working with his group, Terry went to Motown Records as an
artist and producing partners with Smokey Robinson. As an artist, he
recorded several records on the Gordy Label. He wrote, arranged, and
produced songs for Smokey Robinson & The Miracles, The Supremes, The
Four Tops, The Temptations, Martha Reeves & The Vandellas, Edwin
Starr, The Spinners, Bobby Taylor & the Vancouvers, Jimmy Ruffin,
Mickey Denton, Blinky and other Motown artists.
Terry is extremely grateful for the opportunities that he has had in
recording with the other members of The Whispers, (Billy Thompson,
James Johnson, Bill Mills) and The Flamingos, Jake & Zeke Carey
(Founders), Paul Wilson, Tommy Hunt and Nate Nelson) and the above
named artists at Motown. Working with such great artists is a major
part of his success.
The Whispers, to
The Flamingos, to
The Starglows, to
Motown Records and up to today, his legacy, sound and the
success of his
music continues with his own group TERRY JOHNSON’S FLAMINGOS. Many of

"Rock and Roll At 50", and you will also see him on the latest PBS
special called "Doo-Wop Lost And Found", filmed in Atlantic City, due
to air in November of 2005.
The story of
Johnny Maestro & the Brooklyn Bridge
is one that spans virtually the entire rock era. It begins with The
Crests in the latter half of the 50's, as the marriage of swing, blues
and country music was giving birth to rock n'roll, and it continues
today, in a period of musical and technological sophistication, with
The Brooklyn Bridge, through new recordings, and a stage show that is
one of the strongest and most popular on the east coast. In these
live appearances, the Bridge takes its audience on a tour through the
history of the band and its members, and also offers a glimpse of its
current musical direction, all the while showcasing the power and
artistry of the incomparable Johnny Maestro.
As the music scene changed with the British Invasion of the early
60’s, Johnny searched for a framework within which he could create a
new sound. He began working with The Del-Satins, a local New York
City vocal group whose members included Fred Ferrara and Les Cauchi.
The Del-Satins had several record releases, on of which, "Teardrops
Follow Me", was a strong local hit. They had also done studio work
with several artists and were most notably the background vocalists on
all of Dion’s solo efforts. While working the local club scene,
Johnny and the Del-Satins ran into the Rhythm Method, a seven-piece
band whose members included Jim Rosica on bass and vocals. The two
bands were so impressed with each other that they decided to merge
together. Thus was formed The Brooklyn Bridge. The Brooklyn Bridge
once again brought nationwide exposure to the voice of Johnny Maestro.
His powerful performance of Jim Webb’s "The Worst That Could Happen"
backed by the Bridge’s trademark strong vocal and horn arrangements,
led to a gold record for the band and countless concert and television
appearances, including one on the Ed Sullivan Show. Other hits
followed, including "Welcome Me Love", "Blessed Is The Rain", "Your
Husband My Wife", and "You’ll Never Walk Alone".
Worst That Can Happen
was inducted into The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in his own home town, Cleveland Ohio! In late 1959, Sonny Turner replaced Tony Williams as the lead singer of the original Platters. Chosen out of 100 singers to audition, at the young age of 19, Sonny toured the world with "The Platters" bringing their music to people of all nationsSonny brought The Platters back to the pop charts in the 1960's with such hits as "I love you 1000 times", "With This Ring", and "Washed Ashore"; as well as re-recording The Platters major hits like "Only You", "The Great Pretender", "The Magic Touch" (recently heard in the "The Nutty Professor II" starring Eddie Murphy). Today, Sonny performs all over the world; be sure to check his tour schedule and catch one of his shows!
Martha Reeves was born in Eufaulat Alabama. Upon graduation from high
school, Martha joined several girls groups and performed locally as an
amateur where and whenever the opportunity arose. She did it for the
experience and most of the time just for the fun of it. Berry Gordy, after
being asked his opinion of a demo record Martha had sung for Williams
Stevenson, became interested in her talents. The group's name changed to
Martha Reeves and the Vandellas, as she was
featured solely as lead for the group. The song entitled, "I'll Have To Let
Him Go", began the group's string of hits. Their next single, "Come and Get
These Memories" marked the marriage of the Holland-Dozier-Holland writing
team (known for million sellers for the Supremes, The Four Tops, Smokey
Robinson and The Miracles, and Marvin Gaye).
Martha currently resides with her son Eric, in Detroit where it all began,
after living twelve years in Los Angeles. Since Motown records, she has had
solo albums between her live performances all over the world. Richard Perry
of Planet Records produced the first one in 1973 on MCA Records. Arista
released "The Rest of My Life", an album with various producers. In 1979,
Fantasy Records released "We Meet Again" and in 1981, "Gotta' Keep Moving.
The love movement, the flower children of the Sixties, the dance craze
generation, all music lovers in the United States and abroad accredit Martha
Reeves and the Vandellas as a great influence on musical history as well as
a big part of Detroit history.

Former ladies of the Supremes,
Scherrie Payne, Lynda Laurence, Freddi Poole.
In October 1973, Scherrie took over the role of lead vocalist with Motown
legends, The Supremes. As lead singer, Scherrie
recorded three albums with The Supremes, The Supremes (in 1975) High Energy
(in 1976) and Mary, Scherrie & Susaye (in 1976).
When The Supremes disbanded in 1977, Scherrie went on to record one final
"highly acclaimed" Motown album Partners (1979) with Susaye Greene (also of
The Supremes) as "Scherrie & Susaye". Regrettably, this album was never
issued in the U.K. Amongst Scherrie's other projects of this time was the
writing of a musical called "Ten Good Years", and her appearance in a
musical show called "Dream Street". Along with Susaye, Scherrie also sang
background vocals on "Animal Party", a track on James Ingram's "It's Your
In 1986, Scherrie joined a reformed lineup of The Supremes (for legal
reasons known as "Former Ladies of the Supremes" or FLOS for short)
alongside Jean Terrell & Lynda Laurence. Two songs were recorded for
Superstar International Records, "We're Back" and "Getaway", but sadly the
company folded before the new recordings could make much impact.
During the late 1980's, Lynda was asked to join the reformed line-up of The
Supremes, again filling a vacancy left by Cindy Birdsong. A string of 12"
singles followed, all released on Ian Levine's UK "MotorCity" label. In
1992 Jean Terrell decided to leave the group to pursue business interests
and the ladies invited Lynda's sister Sundray to join the line-up. More
recently in July 1996, Sundray Tucker was replaced by new member Freddi

Rose Falcon is like every other 18-year-old and yet, she's probably not like anyone you've ever met. Like many adolescents, Rose grew up feeling like an outsider. When she discovered her gift for music, she realized that the thoughts and feelings that she thought set her apart were, at the same time, universal and that music gave her a way to communicate and connect. "I was never drawn into the typical things that my friends were doing," she says. "But when I began singing and writing songs, it was like: yes! I finally found what I loved to do."
Rose Falcon rings true, an album unlike anything else on the scene right now. Rose's lyrics--sometimes wistful, sometimes playful, always clever--are an authentic depiction of life, capturing the times when it's good and the times when it hurts. Rose Falcon brings joy, pleasure and wonder to her music while addressing some of the toughest issues a young person can face. "I write about how I see things," she explains, "and how they make me feel."

This CD is a great mix of Bob's take on classic songs with his own songs and arrangements mixed in. This is a guy to watch." David Hooper "IndieMusician.com" (Nashville, TN)

Duke Ellington Orchestra with Paul Ellington.
Duke Ellington was eulogized as "the supreme jazz talent of the past fifty
years" by critic Alistair Cooke in a 1983 issue of Esquire. A prolific
composer, Ellington created over two thousand pieces of music, including the s
tandard songs "Take the A-Train" and "It Don't Mean a Thing (If It Ain't Got
That Swing)" and the longer works Black, Brown, and Beige, Liberian Suite, and
Afro-Eurasian Eclipse. With the variously named bands he led from 1919 until
his death in 1974, Ellington was responsible for many innovations in the jazz
field, such as "jungle-style" use of the growl and plunger, and the
manipulation of the human voice as an instrument--singing notes without words.
During the course of his long career, Ellington was showered with many honors,
including the highest civilian award granted by the United States, the
Presidential Medal of Freedom, which was presented to him by President
Richard M. Nixon in 1969. "No one else," concluded Cooke, "in the eighty- or
ninety-year history of jazz, created so personal an orchestral sound and so
continuously expanded the jazz idiom."
Duke Ellington was active as a performer and composer until his death of lung
cancer on May 24,
1974, in New York City. Though his audiences constantly demanded such old
standards as "Mood Indigo" and "In a Sentimental Mood," Ellington preferred
to look ahead and develop new songs for his band. One of his last was "The
Blues Is Waitin'." After his death, his only son, Mercer Ellington, who had
been serving as the band's business manager and trumpet player, took over
its leadership. Mercer Ellington led the orchestra until his father's death
in 1974, continuing The Duke's tradition of constant touring, one-night
engagements and high-intensity, hard-driving jazz. When Mercer passed away,
Duke's grandson, Paul Ellington took over the leadership role.

But at the same time, Victoria is a seasoned country artist whose powerful and moving vocals combine the heart and soul of Patsy Cline with the sassiness and energy of Shania Twain.
Victoria is a two-time winner of scholarships to Boston's Berklee College of Music for Jazz. She is also the reigning female champion of the 2004 Canadian Open Country Singing Competition. She has performed for thousands at a Shania Twain concert, at Queen Elizabeth's Golden Jubilee Celebrations and at the Opening Ceremonies of the World Cycling Championships.
As a singer/songwriter, Victoria wrote, produced and toured with her own country music cd, ALL WOMAN GIRL, in 2002/3. As a recording artist, she is "the full package" and she's had the pleasure of working and recording with world class musicians like members of Elton John's band (Davey Johnstone, Nigel Olsen, Bob Birch and Guy Babylon). While Victoria also models, writes and records jingles, does movie work and is a Shania Twain tribute act, her focus is on her singing and performing skills. Her long-term goal: to become an international recording artist and live entertainer. Her favourite place: ON STAGE!

Brian Edwards provides an alternative to the traditional band or DJ for wedding receptions, parties, anniversaries, clubs, or just about anywhere you need quality musical entertainment. He is a solo performer who brings with him all the recorded backing tracks to accompany him while he sings and plays either electric or acoustic guitar. All tracks are digitally recorded by Brian. This concept allows him to offer you all the benefits of a live, interactive show, at a cost which in many cases is less than a good band or DJ.
Brian has been performing in bands and as a solo performer in and around the Hudson Valley for years, and is recognized and loved by many who have seen his show or hired him for a particular function. His influences are varied; rock, acoustic, alternative, blues, new age, all which blend together nicely as he strives to give the crowd and client what they want. He has many dance sets including the likes of The Beatles, Clapton, Elvis, Little Richard, Jimi Hendrix, Cat Stevens, Jimmy Buffett, Skynrd, James Taylor, The Eagles, Neil Young, Saliva, Tonic, and many, many more.
A few of the places at which Brian has performed are Mariners Harbor, Hyde Park Brewery, Juniors, Beekman Arms as well as countless private functions including the most recent Republican Convention in New York City.

born and raised in Camden Pont, Missouri has been performing the best of "Elvis" for the last several years, and is recognized as one of the best impersonators with a touch of class.
Authenticity plays a critical role in his performances, and personally means a great deal to Keith. Boswell has many prized possessions of Elvis, including jewelry made by his friend Mike McGregor of Mississippi who was, one of Elvis's jewelry designers. McGregor has made belts, rings, and the famous TCB with flash that Elvis gave to his best friends. Boswell incorporates these into his performance to make things as authentic as possible.
Recreating memories of of Elvis for fans young and old alike has been Keith's main focus since he began singing. One of the reasons he decided to be an Elvis Impersonator was when he heard someone putting Elvis down. Keith believes in what he does, and has spent many years researching the real Elvis Presley. Keith has many friends that knew Elvis personally, one of his bestfriends who sadly passed away was Mike McGregor. Mike was Elvis's jeweler, as well as worked with the horses. Other friends include Joe Esposito, Wayne Carmen, Marion Cocke, George Kline and many others. When you watch and hear Keith perform you can feel his passion, and hopefully for a time,you'll be closer to Elvis.
Keith does three speciality performances for audiences. The first is "Elvis On Tour". an upbeat two hour show that contains some of Elvis's best gospel and love songs including two costumes for any group of audience. Next is "Elvis In Las Vegas", a one hour Las Vegas style performance that Elvis sang at the International Hotel. This show is considered one of the best. And last, "Elvis At Madison Square Garden", an intimate show featuring songs that Elvis performed to a packed house at Madison Square Garden in New York. Keith also has a "Legendary Memories" show that was his vision for several years. With Keith as Elvis, and other impersonators doing Roy Orbison and Patsy Cline, they bring back memories that touch the heart.

From a simple karaoke contest in 2004 to what has become an outpouring of fans and concert dates. Jeff has been asked to perform in Theaters, Civic Centers, Nite Clubs, Private Parties and Cruise Ships. Attending his first contest ever in Branson, MO. in 2005, Jeff made it to the finals where he placed 8th out of 42 other contestants. Jeff is the grand champion of the Isle of Capri contest in Lake Charles Louisianna. Jeff Rainey has established himself as a true tribute artist in a very short period of time. Jeff’s love for Elvis and his music span 30 years.
Jeff has made many friends and fans along the way as he pours out his heart and soul to the King of rock and roll in a very high energy circa 1970 “THAT’S THE WAY IT IS” concert that will leave you shocked and amazed and for some even breathless to the detail of each performance. Always studying films and videos, Jeff says that all Elvis fans know how Elvis moved on stage and how natural Elvis made it all seem. He had an aura about him personally and professionally that will never be duplicated. We try to give people who may not have ever seen Elvis in concert and even those who have, the closest experience to Elvis on stage as possible. As long as I am able, I will continue to keep the Elvis experience alive for future generations to come. If, at any time during our shows I can bring back a piece of the past or a smile to a face, then our job is done. I would not be as far as I am today if not for all the support of my family, friends, fans and my beautiful wife Debbie. Thank you and GOD BLESS.

You won't believe your ears or your eyes as you watch and listen to the
Amigos perform their renditions of your favorite "Santana" songs!
The band "Amigos" is comprised of the finest musicians in the Sacramento area.
"Amigos" is assembled with the common goal
of faithfully recreating the music, energy and
atmosphere of the original "Santana" band.
This very special blend of music crosses all
ethnic backgrounds and is popular with all age
groups. The "Amigos" flow seamlessly through
all the styles of the "Santana" band.
You will hear the magical ballads created by Cartos Santana and the
Latin rock percussion rhythm will beckon you to dance freely.
Audience participation is encouraged and during the shows, rhythm
instruments are often handed out and people are brought onto the stage to play with the band!

Marie, a Reba McEntire Impersonator,
began her impersonation career in the fall of 1995 when she
first appeared as an actress in local murder mystery dinner theater
productions. Marie auditioned for the part of a Reba McEntire
look-alike. Unsure as to whether there was any similarity between the
"Queen of Country Music" and herself, Marie went searching for photos
of the country music legend. To her amazement, the similarities were
uncanny. The show ran for three months and received rave reviews.
Following the closing of the show, Marie decided to continue her
venture into the arts, combining her love of music with the sheer fun
of impersonating the most-beloved female country singer of all time,
Reba McEntire. Marie studied hundreds of hours of music video clips
and continued to perfect her singing voice until she was ready to take
her show on the road.
Based on the east coast, Marie has won several local and national
lookalike contests. Country Weekly magazine's grand prize celebrity
contest winner, Marie received an all expense trip for two to
Nashville where she was featured twice in their magazine, autographed
at Fan Fair 2000, was part of the TNN Awards show hosted by Jeff
Foxworthy. Her picture also appeared in Country Live magazine.
December 2001, Marie was selected to be one of eight contestants on
The Weakest Link hosted by Anne Robinson where she was able to raise
$10,000 for charity. November 2002, Marie was once again selected to
be a character contestant on Hollywood Squares.
Although Marie has her own concert style performance show on the east
coast, she also is booked by various agents across the US for
corporate functions, appearances, and casino work. In 2001, she
performed at The Santa Ana Star Casino in Albuquerque, New Mexico.
Marie worked a six month engagement at The River Palms Casino in
Laughlin, Nevada through April, 2003 and in 2004 spent five weeks
working at The Tropicana in Atlantic City, NJ. She recently took the
stage for a private corporate function at The Wildhorse Saloon in
Marie has fooled not only die-hard Reba fans, but Reba's band, staff
and peers as well; including Tim McGraw, Ronnie Dunn, Toby Keith,
JoDee Messina, Terri Clark, Linda Davis, Pam Tillis and many more.
Reba's son, Shelby, said, "that woman looks just like my Mom", when he
spotted Marie in the audience at a taping of the Reba sitcom, while Al
Roker had security pull Marie from the audience of The Today Show
telling Reba they should do a "Patti Duke, country style" show.
For fans who can no longer see a Reba performance, this is clearly the
next best thing! Marie's tribute show covers various material from
Reba's early career through her most recent work, and has performed
for thousands of fans all over the country. Audiences continue to be
amazed at the sound-alike and look-alike qualities she possesses. And
as long as there are Reba fans, Marie will continue to entertain
crowds with her warm, friendly, and "perky" personality unique to both
Reba and Marie.
are four females who bring the sizzling excitement and pure power pop
pleasure of Cheap Trick and give it a gender-bending twist.
There is something intriguing about Cheap Chick that places them on the map
somewhere far outside the confines of the cover band ghetto. You could file
them under the usual classifications - Cheap Trick fans, all-girl group,
tribute act. However, you’ll find those simple generalizations don’t factor
in the ingredients that make this foursome the tastiest confection playing
the concert circuit today. When Cheap Trick guitarist and founder, Rick
Nielsen, refers to Cheap Chick as his "favorite new band," you can be sure
they've got the ultimate seal of approval.
Like the band they imitate, these musicians have a sense of humor. They
realize the inherent irony of being a tribute band, and revel in their
never-ending quest for tribute band realism. Not only do they dress and act
the parts they play and bring an entourage of groupies and hangers-on along
with them to every show, they have a faux tribute "manager," Jim
Addthemoney, who pays "tribute" to Cheap Trick’s parsimonious former
manager, Ken Adamany. They play a loop of a stadium full of screaming fans
between songs and have even held real-life press conferences to announce
their signing to indie label, Teenacide Records.
||I want you to want me
Regardless of the trappings of tribute band stardom, it’s the music that
matters. They take the best of the band’s catalog and pump up the estrogen
factor, turn-up the sex-appeal and peak out the VU meter. They’ve got the
chops as well as the attitude that all tribute bands should have; they nail
the songs with force and serve it up with a healthy dose of a true love of
power pop and Cheap Trick.

are much more than simply a band playing the music of the Kinks. Our aim is to recreate as closely as possible, the sounds and styles of the classic era Kinks from 1964-1972
Authentic outfits and instruments help recapture the 1960s Kinks live experience. The only difference is the vast improvement in sound quality! Short of getting in a time machine, this is as close to a real 1960s Kinks show as you'll get.

"They had a hard time convincing me it wasn't me." -Billy Joel
After working for two decades (and over 5000 performances) as a full-time professional entertainer who not only astounded audiences with his Neil Diamond impression but several others such as Frank Sinatra, Elvis Presley, Engelbert Humperdinck, Tony Bennett, Barry Manilow and literally scores of other vocal and speaking voices, Tom decided to do a full look alike and sound alike Neil Diamond impersonation. He was an instant success and, since debuting his Neil Diamond impersonation in September 1997, has toured Canada twice and performed at impressive venues all over North America from Arizona to Toronto and from Vancouver to Florida!
The last six years of Tom's career, as a Neil Diamond impersonator,
have been the most exciting of his professional life, despite the
thousands of hours that went into bringing his Neil Diamond
impersonation to life. To perform Neil Diamond's songs as closely as
possible as the original legend - Neil Diamond - performed them is
Tom's goal, and he is proud to do so. Why add to or change

which blends into the perfect Rock-n-Roll drink!
Recently HOT FOR TEACHER was invited to perform for Michael Anthony's bass guitar dedication at San Francisco's Hard Rock Cafe. During that evening The Mighty Van Halen bassist joined the band on stage. The already raucous crowd shifted into overdrive as Michael and the boys ripped through an energized set featuring "Women In Love", "Unchained", "Dance The Night Away", "Panama", "Mean Street", "Outta Love Again", and "Ain't Talkin' 'bout Love".

Head Games The Foreigner Tribute
There are cover bands, copy bands, bar bands, and specialty acts. But, none
more difficult to pull off than a tribute band. FOREIGNER's music presents
a challenge that few bands would ever attempt. Their mix of rock and roll
with R&B, classical, pop, funk, and jazz catapulted them to the forefront of
popular music in the 1970's and 1980's, culminating in their mega-hit "I
Want To Know What Love Is".
Forged amidst rumors of the classic rock band's impending demise, HEAD GAMES
not only re-create the live FOREIGNER sound, but they capture the whole
FOREIGNER experience. They deftly reproduce the band's sight, sound, and
soul, ensuring that a whole new generation of listeners will be exposed to
some of the most influential music of our time. They are five seasoned
musicians from the New York City area (where Mick and Lou originally formed
their band) who share a common love for hard rocking music. They bring
together all the same elements that made FOREIGNER so hugely successful.
Each member brings a long history of local success from many different NYC
bands. With Mike Ledesma on lead vocals, Billy Randall on
bass, Mike Dagostino on drums, Jose Damien on keyboards, and
John Francese on guitar and guitar synthesizer, their tribute to the
legendary rock band can only be experienced in their power packed live

The show is best described as a live chronological journey of the band's
career beginning with their early days as Mods through their final album
with Keith Moon.
Who's Next not only tries to capture the spirit of The Who,
but the actual essence of the band both musically and visually. The band
recreates the era by wearing vintage clothing and using exact replicas
of guitars that were used during that time period. The show also features
a video anthology and interviews that are synced to the band's performance.

In August of 2000, his dreams became a reality when he auditioned and was chosen to perform on Dick Clark's "Your Big Break", a musical talent show hosted by NBC.
Since that time, opportunities have continued to present themselves. Reggie

Corporate Entertainment Events
Corporate entertainment events are the lifeblood of any organization. Without giving your employees a fun break every once in a while, they can become unmotivated and listless.

Unique Event Entertainment
Executives are often faced with the seemingly daunting task of securing unique event entertainment. While this job can be delegated to a corporate meeting planner, it is often the VIPs who have the final say. Knowing how important event entertainment is, can help sell you on the idea of budgeting for this necessary investment.
Unique event entertainment is one of the most crucial aspects of events, as it gives attendees a chance to unwind and rejuvenate. It may come in the form of a motivational speaker for a keynote address or a comedian to entertain your board members. Team building and training are also more successful when the information is imparted in a fun way that doesn't seem like learning.
More Information about Unique Event Entertainment
At LocoLobo Corporate Events, we have a broad range of popular speakers who are knowledgeable in their fields and have gained the life experience necessary for success. They are both entertaining and informative, often sharing personal stories that audiences can relate to. Successful speeches are remembered long after attendees return to the office, so let us help you choose the right speaker or unique event entertainment.
We don't only book talent, however; we are also a full-service event management company with a superb track record. So if you'd rather outsource the endless details of event planning than overburden your staff, contact us for a consultation. We can provide you with ideas for successful events, based on our experience with current and previous clients. We have helped many Fortune 500 companies realize the dream of enlightening event audiences with informative entertainment, and we'll do the same for you.
Companies are finally catching on to the notion that VIP events are good PR (public relations). Private parties for your best clients, invitation-only hospitality suites at trade shows, and entertainment for your executive board all leave your guests feeling appreciated. They establish goodwill and encourage future business.
No two VIP events are alike, nor should they be. Event planners are forever searching for ways to make them memorable for their guests. The best event is one that gets talked about long after the event. However, it's not an easy task to make them as good as you want them to be.

We will plan your meeting from start to finish, including obtaining comedians and booking bands. So let us book your entertainment, and take the burden off of you.
Event managers and corporate executives are constantly seeking ways to make their "special events" truly special. You might think that hiring famous performers is way out of your league, but that is not necessarily the case. Talking with a qualified talent agency that has a vast array of experiences hiring celebrities is a definite way to find out.
Whether you regularly host VIP-only events or only produce them on occasion, booking famous performers will pay off in the long run. Name recognition as well as the exceptional talent that is a given with fame will give your guests something to talk about. And there is no better way to make you look good than by people spreading the word to their colleagues.
LocoLobo Corporate Events is a talent agency that can book any famous performer you want. If you don't know your audience's taste in entertainment, or you don't know who you would like to hire, take heed. That is a situation our specialists deal with daily and we will be glad to help you narrow down your choices with regard to performer, program, theme, and budget.
We do not represent any one person so we are able to negotiate with other agents and managers to secure the date and performer for you. In addition to entertainers, we can also book keynote speakers, motivational speakers, lecturers or experts for your next seminar, convention, or trade show. Our services include recommending the best talent for your individual events, negotiating and acheiving your financial goals, researching prospective talent, and arranging a site if you don't already have one. Call us today to learn more.
Famous comedians can add humor and pizzazz to an otherwise dull meeting. They also offer entertainment and comic relief during conferences, when everybody is weary from all-day seminars. Comedy is a great way to impart wisdom as well as to break the ice at business functions. However, many meeting planners fail to utilize this valuable resource.
Famous Comedians and Your Bottom Line
Offering a comedy event with famous comedians is a sure way to keep your attendees feeling energetic and give them a chance to unwind a bit before more seminars. Famous comedians offer name recognition as well as top-quality talent--they wouldn't be famous if they were not exceptional at what they do. When you host a famous entertainer, word of mouth marketing works harder than usual to increase your event's profits.
There are a lot of details to consider before booking comedians. Meeting planners who are already overworked would benefit from the services of a qualified speakers' bureau and meetings management company. At LocoLobo Corporate Events, we have a huge database of famous comedians, motivational and keynote speakers, bands, authors, and other entertainers at our disposal. We have a long history of satisfied clients and we can book the perfect talent for you, too.We guarantee the best service for booking comedians and other entertainment and speakers. We seek repeat business so we work within your event budget and help you get the best ROI. We're eager to become your event management and talent specialist.
Corporate performances demand attention to detail when planning. Knowing your objectives for your meeting and the corporate entertainment you want will go a long way toward succeeding at the event. Ask yourself why you are holding the meeting and why you want an outside performer to be at your event. Then you will be able to give better direction to your planning committee when it comes time to book talent.
At LocoLobo Corporate Events, we have helped hundreds of corporations like yours meet their objectives in corporate performances. We save our clients thousands of hours of time researching talent and narrowing down the list to finally choose appropriate talent. Whether you need celebrity acts or regional flavor, we will help you evaluate your needs and make suggestions for the corporate performances that will work for your event.
Impressing VIPs with Corporate Performances
Well-known acts not only entertain, they impress guests as well. If your objective is to reward employees or make an impression on your VIPs, a private concert with a celebrity band is well worth the investment. Music, comedians, or magicians each work best in different situations. Tell us who comprises your audience and describe the theme of purpose of your event. We'll do the rest.
Music For Corporate Events
Music for corporate events is something that executives and meeting planners agonize about unnecessarily. While it's true that the right music sets the mood for a memorable evening, choosing the soundtrack is best left to somebody else. The booking agency you use to find your talent should be able to coordinate musicians, travel, and entertainment programs, or you risk wasting your time with them.
At LocoLobo Corporate Events, we have a long history of helping our corporate clients impress audiences with appropriate music for corporate events. Rather than asking you to choose the type of music that will satisfy an audience that varies in age, taste, and style, we'll instead help you decide on the type of mood you want to create with your music. The result will be a party that impresses all!
Setting the Mood with Music for Corporate Events
For example, whether you want to host a rock concert or provide a backdrop of jazz music for dinner makes a substantial difference in the entertainment we suggest. Aside from singers, bands, and individual musicians, we also suggest DJs for our clients. DJs are not limited to the type of music they play and can offer lots of sound when you are short on space.
Top Quality Music for corporate events does not come without a price tag. Our discerning clients are willing to pay for 5 star national acts that we can acheive for that special event. If you're looking for local flavor to entertain audiences that come from all over the world, local and regional acts are also available. Allow LocoLobo Corporate Events to be your partner in showcasing musical entertainment at your next large-scale corporate event.
It's no secret. Famous entertainers raise attendance and bring in the big bucks while providing attendees with a once-in-a-lifetime chance to be in the same room with their favorite celebrities. Before you call LocoLobo Corporate Events to book your talent, evaluate your goals for your meeting and the results you want to achieve.
Think about the issues that are facing your industry and how a keynote speaker, musician, or comedian can help your audience overcome them. You may or may not really need outside speakers or famous entertainers. Your in-house people might be better at dealing with the challenges facing your industry. If you have a low budget, by all means, inside people are the best.
What Famous Entertainers Do for Meetings
Of course, if there are difficulties that need to be addressed, outside speakers and famous entertainers can offer objectivity and ease the blow of delivering bad news so that insiders can work on the issues. For example, if your company is going through reorganization, you might hire speakers to talk about team stress and overcoming adversity. A comedian will take the edge off the seriousness of your meeting and help put everybody in a more relaxed mood.
Hiring famous entertainers can turn your ho-hum meeting into a unique chance to meet a celebrity in a cozy setting. It not only impresses your guests, but will also send a message that your company is financially stable. When a famous performer appears at your event, it gives your company an air of significance. When you are ready to book a famous act for your corporate party, contact us at LocoLobo Corporate Events.
VIP entertainment makes your guests comfortable and adds a sense of lightness to your events. After a long day of intensive seminars or a grueling day on their feet at your trade show booth, attendees will appreciate being treated to a special VIP entertainment event. Magicians, comedians, and even actors appeal to a wide variety of people and help break the ice at networking events.
LocoLobo Corporate Events specializes in bringing the best VIP entertainment to your corporate event. A relaxing atmosphere for travelers will make all the difference at your function, particularly if people are coming from long distances. They might not know other people so entertainment can make them feel included and capture their attention.
With our Corporate Event unique ingenuity, your VIP events will never be boring. We provide interesting entertainment that is creative and fun for all your guests, whether your crowd is large or small. Interactive performers like comedians or special event entertainment, keep your guests participating and draw them into the event. When they participate, they'll remember the originality of the performance long after it's over.
VIP Entertainment Generates Buzz for your Company
VIP entertainment from our Corporate Events company also gives you great publicity and helps generate buzz. Host a function before a trade show to get people talking all over the trade show floor. They'll repeat your company name many times over as they retell their stories again and again. Spend the time choosing unique entertainment to keep your event in the front of everybody's minds and keep them returning for more.
Good convention entertainment can make or break your convention and music really brings a crowd together. Knowing which type of music is best for your audience is not simple. It's better to decide instead on a particular mood, such as dancing, dinner music, or soothing classical music. Music can be the focal point of an event such as a concert or it can provide a background for mingling at a cocktail party.
