Pat Benatar and Neil Giraldo
Pat Benatar and Neil “Spyder” Giraldo have been an unstoppable rock ‘n’ roll powerhouse since their initial collaboration 35 years ago on the debut album "In The Heat of the Night." Together, with Benatar's mezzo-soprano vocal range and Giraldo's trail-blazing work as a guitarist, producer and songwriter, they have sold more than 26 million albums and charted 19 Top 40 singles including "Love is a Battlefield", "Hit Me with Your Best Shot", "Heartbreaker", "We Live For Love", "Promises In The Dark," "We Belong" and more - leading to four consecutive Grammy Awards between 1980 and 1983, as well as three American Music Awards.
Today, Benatar and Giraldo remain one of rock ‘n’ roll's most successful duos, inspiring future generations of artists, selling out concerts, and wowing audiences around the world. Billboard Magazine ranked Benatar as one of the most successful female rock vocalist of all-time. Her emergence as a fearless, fighting force has helped forge a path for other female rock stars around the world. In addition to the arsenal of more then 100 songs he's written, produced, arranged and recorded for Benatar, Giraldo's helped create hits for legions of other artists including John Waite, Rick Springfield (No. 1, Grammy-winning classic “Jessie’s Girl and Top Ten hit "I've Done Everything for You"), Kenny Loggins and more. Theirs is a chemistry that will, undoubtedly, be thrilling music lovers forever.
CHEAP TRICK may be one of the most covered bands of all time. Since the 70s they’ve been blending elements of pop, punk and even metal in a way that is instantly catchy and recognizable. With timeless classics such as “I Want You to Want Me,” “Surrender,” and “The Flame,” CHEAP TRICK are a musical institution. Anyone familiar with Comedy Central’s The Colbert Report will note that CHEAP TRICK wrote and performed the theme song.
With more than 5,000 performances, 20 million records sold, 29 movie soundtracks and 40 gold and platinum recording awards, the band was honored in October 2007 by the Chicago Chapter of NARAS (National Academy of Recording Arts & Sciences) for their contributions to the music industry. CHEAP TRICK were featured in the John Varvatos Spring 2008 ad campaign.
The band has most recently performed their Dream Police album in its entirety along with an orchestra in select cities across the US. This innovative show also includes many other songs from the band’s extensive catalog, garnering them critical acclaim after performances in venues such as the Greek Theatre in Los Angeles.
Their most current release, The Latest, (released on CD, vinyl and 8-track) has garnered glowing reviews worldwide and continues Cheap Trick’s reign as power-pop progenitors as they continue their legacy of over 35 years in the music industry.
