This event is all ages
Best known as the singer-songwriter/ front man of the Philadelphia based blues- rock band Cinderella, Tom Keifer, is enjoying continued success and touring in support of his solo debut, The Way Life Goes.
Though he possesses all the fire and brimstone of Rock’s greatest front men, you would be hard pressed to find the versatility and dimension that Keifer brings to a stage.
Whether delivering heart wrenching ballads, such as Don’t Know What You Got ‘til It’s Gone, channeling the soul of the bluesmen of the past with his slide guitar and lap steel, or blowing sax on rockers like “Shelter Me”, Keifer is clearly one of the most unique singers and accomplished musicians in Rock and Roll. Combine that with his new band, Tony Higbee (Guitar/vocals), Billy Mercer (Bass/vocals), Kory Myers (Keyboards/Vocals), Jarred Pope, (Drums), Savannah Keifer (Vocals/percussion/Piano) and Kendra Chantelle (Vocals/percussion), and there is only one possible outcome- A high energy rock show combining all the classic hits of Cinderella with new favorites from The Way Life Goes that will only leave you wanting more.
Electric Radio Kings
ERK blends many great mixtures of past and present to combine one incredible infectious RNR sound with sprinkles of Cheap Trick, Foo Fighters and STP.
Johnny Solinger (of Skid Row)
EX-SKID ROW Frontman
From every corner of the world, stadiums, arenas, theaters, and night clubs, Johnny Solinger has brought the sound of Texas thunder to the masses. As lead singer of the multi-platinum rock band SKID ROW for 15 years, Johnny has been just about everywhere and seen just about everything.... until now.
Things have changed a bit for the rock aficionado. He has added Country recording artist to his duties. Don't be confused, for this should come as no surprise to anyone who knows the versatile singer. Growing up in the Dallas/Ft Worth metroplex, Johnny was exposed in equal doses to Hard Rock and Country music. He fell in love with both, and has been two timin' the pair of them ever since. He formed the rock band SOLINGER in Dallas, recording 4 independent records and enjoying live performance and radio success throughout the Southwest.
In January of 2000, Johnny was invited to join the multi-million album selling rock band SKID ROW, immediately embarking on a nine month tour with rock legends KISS just weeks later. Johnny has said "What a tremendously humbling experience it is to climb up on the stage with artists such as KISS and Ted Nugent, but when you get that chance, it's sink or swim. I had to dive in head first." To date, Johnny Solinger has toured the world many times over sharing the stage with some of the biggest names in music, including Aerosmith, Bon Jovi, and Kid Rock. He has recorded two records with the band, Thickskin and Revolutions Per Minute. Johnny has appeared on CNN, MTV, VH1, The Speed Channel, Sirius, and XM satellite radio. Pretty darn unexpected for a self-proclaimed "redneck" from the "Great State of Texas". While replacing such a well known singer may have seemed an impossible task for some, Johnny was never daunted, and actually considers it an upgrade.
Johnny continues to pursue something that's been running through his veins his whole life... country music. On his debut solo material he proclaims:
"Aside from rock, I've recorded some country tunes as well (hell, I live in Houston, Texas!), and while it might seem odd to have such drastic tastes in music, it seems perfectly natural to me."
The first and only single released "Too Well To Go To Work" managed to hit the top 20 on the Texas Music Charts peaking at #16. This was a regional release and was only available in Texas and Oklahoma retail stores. It's filled with both sides of Johnny Solinger, Country and Rock. It was a perfect introduction to country fans who may have never heard of Johnny.
It's been three long years since the debut effort, and in those 36 months the band experienced an astounding re-emergence on the world's stage, covering all corners of the globe, including China, Australia, Argentina, Peru, Brazil, Colombia, Chile, Ecuador, Wales, Sweden, Italy, Mexico, Taiwan, and even Russia. Extensive touring of the U.S. followed, delaying the planned release of a second Country record.
The brand new sophomore album from Johnny will make it well worth the wait!! "I'm so excited about these songs and this new record that I glow in the dark", says Solinger. "The first one was never ever meant to be a one and done, throw it against the wall and see if it sticks kinda deal. I LOVE making these records and completely flipping the switch from Hard Rock back to my country roots. I've worked with a helluva list of Grammy winning artists on this thing. Amazing..." Well, the world will get it's first taste and decide for itself how Country this rocker really is with the release of the single "Livin' Out A Country Song", due out in September 2011, with a full length album to follow. Solinger adds: "This time we're going Nationwide. I learned a lot from the Smith Entertainment debut, and I think I'll try and cross those Texas-Oklahoma borders and take some risks".
TURNAWAYS has the snarl of 90's pop punk and the youthful enthusiasm of angst bands like SWMRS and FIDLAR. Turnaways made its mark on the Texas pop-punk scene in 2013 with a slew of Ramones-core style EPs and releases, but the band has hit a new creative stride on “Summer Love” combining the slacker rock of the 1990's, the buzzy surf rock that’s taking over the current airwaves, and the punk spirit of 1977. - Mike Damante (Houston Chronicle)
American music executive, radio & television personality and author, born August 8, 1964 in Summit, New Jersey. Vice-president of Megaforce Worldwide Records 1986-1990, where he signed ex-Kiss guitarist Ace Frehley to his first solo record contract. Host of "That Metal Show" on VH1 Classics.
