Southern Drawl BandCall for availability - Early/Mid December 2014 - Southern Drawl Band is a trop rock/country/southern rock band that has been exciting audiences and the growing number of fans of Trop Rock music. As noted by J.L. Jamison of the Margaritaville Café in Key West, Florida, “The Southern Drawl Band is one of the hottest new Trop Rock bands out there today. A pleasure to work with. We have chosen them to headline our MOTM week this year where they will perform six nights in a row.”
Yolanda DukeCall for availability - 2014 / 2015 - Yolanda Duke "Te Llevo Bajo La Piel: The American Songbook Goes Latino" Feat. Arturo Sandoval.

Tito Puente spirit continues to charge his orchestra; even haunt it in the nicest possible way. The fact is that Tito Puente left his orchestra in fine shape and it is truly none the worse for wear without him. Better still the glorious voice of Yolanda Duke is there to carry the orchestra as if as on the wings of a dove and pushing it beyond where it might have gone were it not for her powerful and memorable vocals. Ms. Duke has sinewy vocal chords.

Ms. Duke can introduce a song at any pitch. There are times when she enters the lyric in the upper register, beginning her flight as if she were leaping off a far off promontory high up on a hillside. Then she appears to—as if she were a condor—catch a thermal, which is usually her own high C, and soar in the azure beyond. Ms. Duke is simply unafraid of leaping off the proverbial musical ledge and letting her lyric free fall, filled of course, by the powerful warm burst of air from her infinitely expandable lungs. She gets her power, of course from the bottom of her soul where the music and lyrics meet and churn a mighty wheel, mixing them for Ms. Duke to inhabit as if she were the protagonist of each song; as if the song were written for her.

Duke takes flight into ranges that she would not normally venture, where she is absolutely and devastatingly beautiful. There is a magnificent example of this in “Nadie Me Lo Podra Quitar (They Can’t Take That Away From Me).” Of course, all of “Luna Azul,” performed as a cha cha cha seems to exist in a rarefied realm. The haunting beauty of “Medley Myrta Silva” is a most spine chilling bolero, especially as Ms. Duke reaches for those high notes as if she were singing an aria.

The crowning glory—or at least one of them—comes in the form of another exquisite bolero,“Contigo En La Distancia” a classic if ever there was one. Here Ms. Duke is at her absolute best as she matches the ingenuity of the ineffable trumpeter Arturo Sandoval. The trumpeter informs the song with a glow that only he can, from a burnished horn that seems to come alive at his touch. Yolanda Duke, for her part matches the trumpeter tone for tone and creates her own palette of colours so that the song floats on a diaphanous tapestry that swathes the rest of the album in colours and tones that continue haunting the listener long after the last notes of the Italian version of “Dio, Como Ti Amo!” die down.

StringfeverCall for availability - Feb 20th thru March 8th, 2015 - Stringfever is a full theatrical show featuring popular classics, film soundtracks and contemporary songs.

Martha Reeves & The VandellasCall for availability - 2014 - Celebrating the 50th Year Anniversary of her biggest hit, "Dancing in the Street," Martha Reeves has embarked on a "Calling Out Around the World Tour" with dates around the globe. Solo or with the Vandellas, Motown's ultimate soul diva delivers a first-class, high energy, engaging show of 75 minutes to two hours, backed by an eight-piece band of Motorcity veterans.

Mark NizerCall for availability - 2014 - Original comedy, world class juggling , movement, music and technology, has made Mark's performance one of the most popular corporate and theatrical events in the entertainment market today.

Daryl StuermerCall for availability - January - February 2015 - DARYL STUERMER, virtuoso jazz/fusion/rock and lead guitarist Genesis and the Phil Collins Band, tours with a 5-piece band, offering Daryl’s original jazz/rock fusion and the music of Genesis and Phil Collins... some of the biggest radio hits of the late 70s, 80s and 90s from one of the most technically brilliant guitarists performing today.

Folk Soul RevivalCall for availability - 2014 - Folk Soul Revival is a harmony drenched, boot stomping, rowdy, rootsy Americana band from the Appalachian mountain region of Virginia/Tennessee.
Uh Huh HerCall for availability - 2014 / 2015 - Formed in Los Angeles, UH HUH HER debuted to a packed house of industry heads, critics and fans, many of whom might have been more familiar with HAILEY’s character “Alice” on “The L Word”GREY, it was her first group project since tenure with the lo-fi indie-rock outfit Mellowdrone. Co-produced by GREY and Al ClayCommon Reaction was a full serving of new wave electro-pop that broke through with the anthemic single "Not A Love Song." The album went on to receive an overwhelming amount of critical praise, with the NEW YORK TIMES hailing the disc "…a lush, layered collection of dizzying, synth-driven pop" (Amanda Petrusich, 10/24/08) and the VILLAGE VOICE adding “Uh Huh Her’s debut album is a stylized mix of guitars and synthesizers framed by melancholic yet glamour-tinged vocals” (Zoe Gemelli, October 29-November 4). Elsewhere, the LOS ANGELES TIMES noted, "Uh Huh Her's sleek, synth-infused sound is closer to Adore-era Smashing Pumpkins or Metric than it is to the moody English alt-rocker (PJ Harvey). The band's debut album, is an electro-pop feast characterized by layers of overlapping vocals" (David Greenwald, 5/29/08). The ROLLING STONE coined them a “Sultry indie electro duo…” (Caryn Ganz, 10/23/08) and the NEW YORKER added, “…[Uh Huh Her] traffic in throbbing synth-pop that's destined to make mascara run” (Kelefa Sanneh, 10/24/08). SPIN added, “[Uh Huh Her] create a lush soundscape of lilting piano arrangements, percolating electronic threads, and sparkling vocals a la Metric and the now-defunct Organ” (Samantha Promisloff, 7/27/08).

Ed Sheeran
LOS ANGELES (AP) — Promoting an album kills creativity, says Ed Sheeran, preferring to watch a World Cup game rather than talk about "X," the anticipated follow-up to his 2011 debut, "+."

The 23-year-old singer-songwriter is drained and distracted from talking up the new album, out Monday, across the country.

"It has to be done," he shrugs, one ear on the U.S.-Ghana game.

The English performer prefers the other parts of his job, writing songs and ...more
