Jay Siegel’s Tokens

The Tokens were one of the first independent, not to mention youngest, teams to produce recordings for a major label, breaking into the really big-time in 1962, when they became the first vocal group to record for another vocal group! Remember “He’s So Fine” by the Chiffons? That was the first of many smash hits Jay and his group had a hand in producing. They became the production geniuses behind numerous other hits by The Chiffons, as well as the biggest hits by Tony Orlando and Dawn, The Happenings, Randy and The Rainbows, and Robert John.

Besides leaving their imprint on the pop music scene as singers, songwriters, arrangers, producers, and record executives, Jay Siegel and The Tokens were successes as writers, producers and singers of commercials, reminding us that “Pan Am makes the going great…”, “Ban won’t wear off as the day…”, and that “Benson and Hedges are a silly millimeter longer…” They were also the voices for Clairol, General Foods, Wrigley’s gum, Sunkist and Wendy’s.

Jay Siegel and The Tokens are truly one of the pop music scene’s most versatile, talented and enduring groups!

Pop-Doo-Wop-SuncoastJoey Dee & The Starliters

“Well, meet me, baby, down on 45th Street” … is a line that was synonymous with The Peppermint Lounge in 1961 when Joey Dee and The Starliters were rocking the house with their smash hit, “The Peppermint Twist”, and shot to fame on the charts.

It all started when one weekend, a New Jersey act, Joey Dee & The Starliters, were booked to play at the then obscure Peppermint Lounge on West 45th Street in New York City, actress Merle Oberon and Prince Serge Oblinski came and danced the night away at the Peppermint Lounge. When this was reported the next morning by columnists Earl Wilson and Cholly Knickerbocker, it took barricades and mounted police to keep the crowds in line, which had backed up to Broadway, the next night!

Joey Dee & The Starliters became the house band and wrote the tune that would extend the Twist craze for another 6 months.

Now joined by original member Dave Brigati, Joey Dee and the Starliters continue to tour all over the US and Canada.

Pop-Doo-Wop-SuncoastThe Angels®

The Angels®, one of rock and roll’s favorite girl groups, are known world-wide for their million-selling Number 1 record, “My Boyfriend’s Back.” They are portrayed in the Broadway hit musical, “Jersey Boys,” and also in the movie of the same name, released in the U.S. in June 2014.

In 1961, sisters Barbara “Bibs” Allbut Brown and Jiggs Allbut Sirico founded the group that came to be known as The Angels®; they recorded two hits, “Til” and “Cry Baby Cry.” In 1963, Peggy Santiglia came on board as lead singer – it’s Peggy’s voice that you hear saying the famous lines, “He went away and you hung around, and bothered me every night.”

The Angels® – Bibs, Jiggs, and Peggy – continue to perform to sold-out concerts in the U.S. and abroad. Do not miss the opportunity to see The Angels® – the ORIGINAL girl group who captured the hearts of America in the 60s – and let The Angels® take you back in time, to your 60s and 70s, when they step on the stage…

RNR hosted by ISI

| Filed under Past Events

Come check out the Brooklyn Bowl Las Vegas on Wednesday, August 27th as ISI host RNR with Social Club and Marion Write. Doors open at 7:00 p.m. / showtime 8:00 p.m.; No Cover must be 21 years of age or older to attend.

RNR

A genre and boundary breaking band, RNR has opened for many acts, opened many doors, and hopes to create new ones for Las Vegas Hip-Hop and the entire music scene. The group of 8 members bring to the table their own studies and experiences, musical and otherwise. Unsurprisingly, the RNR sound is hard to define, but at the core is pure hip-hop. Though the Las Vegas strip actually BANNED hip-hop at one point, because of persistence and RNR’s mass appeal, RNR has been able to open doors for local Hip-Hop there. They have thrown an all local hip-hop charity show at House of Blues and have played at notable strip establishments like Revolution Lounge inside the Mirage, Ghostbar inside the Palms, and The ROK bar inside New York, New York. Their music was featured on the last Vegas season of The Real World on MTV. Bass player CoCojenkins has been the only Hip-Hop representative on the cover of the Las Vegas Weekly and was even featured on an arts segment on PBS. Take a listen, come to a show, and prepare to be impressed. Hip-Hop at a higher level.

With a sound falling somewhere between Gotye, Muse and Maroon 5, San Diego based Social Club is well on their way to becoming the definitive rock / indie / pop band of 2013.

Born in early 2011, Social Club has solidified their sound with an un-relenting presence both live and on the Internet. After releasing their debut EP, Pictureshow, Social Club inked a deal with Pacific Records, a regional label. Following this release, Social Club quickly rose to the top of the San Diego music scene, pulling record crowds at local venues and finding feature spots on local televisions and radio shows.

But Social Club has a unique perspective on success, which stems from the unique composition of the band. Lead singer and guitarist, John Levan says, “Coming from West Virginia, I see things a bit different than the average guy from Hollywood.” John continues, “We’re quite happy just making music and sharing it with fans — that’s what we’re all about.”

Drummer Jeffrey Litzman and James Spratley agree, but emphasizes the bands live performance. “While we love to make music for fans, there’s nothing like a live show,” says Jeffrey.

“We’re all about having a good time,” replies James.

Finally, and not uncommon, synth/keys Thea Tochihara sums it all up. “We care about our fans, our music, the road and our friends in San Diego that believed in us before we had anything…We’re luck to have this opportunity now, and can only hope it will go on forever.”

True to the band’s commentary, this is just the beginning for Social Club. After after releasing their album, Gamma Rays, Social Club won MOFILM’s “Take Your Band to Texas” video competition with their music video for “Slow Motion,” beating out thousands of bands nationwide. This resulted in Social Club making their way to Austin, TX to perform at the 2013 SXSW Festival.

Marion Write’s sense of himself as an artist is his natural desire to connect emotion and reason within his listeners like life’s mentor, curating his thoughts and realities into vivid stories. With captivating structure from song to song, brilliant storytelling and an impressive way of using words, Write is always a refreshing listen, using his perceptions of our surroundings to take you on the highs and lows that life provides naturally. Although Write has released four mixtapes since 2009, recognition of his efforts manifested with the release of his street album ‘Illustrated Example’ (jan. 2012), hosting an outstanding performance and near sold out crowd for his release celebration. His latest offering, ‘To Love And Conquer’ (oct. 2012) is highly regarded as his best work to date, complimenting a much edgy approach to mainstream appeal. “He’s been able to strike a unique balance, becoming radio-friendly without sacrificing  artistic integrity,” mentions Andreas Hale (Life + Times, The Well Versed). Write moved to Las Vegas in 2000 from Virginia Beach. Direction from producer  Leon Sylvers III structured Marion’s love for music as a child. “I remember  coming home from school, going straight to Mr. Leon’s house,” the 26-year old reflects, “After they had us finish our homework, it was straight into writing, recording, dress rehearsals, all that. For the most part, it was music everyday. Not the usual child hood, but it was ideal for me.” Taking from his favorite artists such as Nas, Mos Def and Clipse, Write is sure to strike the core in hip-hop’s
fans. With the keen sense of a hustler to capitalize and continue upward movement, the hunger for more and distaste for satisfaction, be soon to find Marion Write amass a following as large as his passion for music. A huge inspiration for us all, especially amongst all Filipino-Americans alike, Write is an evident addition to the game. Marion Write is also part of an MC/DJ dynamic with producer DJ Finyl, collectively known as “The Greater Good”. They have recently released their first LP “Goodness Gracious” which is available for download at 2DopeBoyz.com. Marion Write is preparing a new street album which is currently titled “Black Gold” and slated for a Summer 2014 release.

Mike Epps

| Filed under Past Events

Mike Epps steadily climbed his way up the stand-up comedy ranks when he was recognized by a national audience in 1995 when he appeared on the Def Comedy Jam tour and HBO’s Def Comedy Jam.

During a performance at LA’s Comedy Store, Epps caught the attention of Ice Cube. This led to the first of three feature films they would do together; the cult hits Next Friday, Friday After Next and the New Line comedy All About the Benjamins. He has had two Showtime Comedy specials “Mike Epps: Underrated and Never Faded” and “Mike Epps Presents…”

He has starred in more than 30 feature films and won a NAACP Image Award for his role in the Sony Pictures film Jumping the Broom. In February, Epps saw the release of his newest film Repentance starring opposite Forest Whitaker and Anthony Mackie.

More Info AboutMike Epps

Pearl Concert Theater at Palms Casino Resort, Las Vegas, NV

Sat, Aug 16, 2014 08:00 PM

Epps was born in Indianapolis, IN, on Nov. 18, 1970. Growing up between Indianapolis and the highly industrial Gary, Epps was one of nine kids to a single mother. From an early age, he discovered his ability to make people laugh, and with Richard Pryor as his main influence, Epps started hitting the stand-up stage when he was a teenager. Unfortunately, it was not enough to keep the obviously talented comedian out of trouble. He fell in with gangs, dropped out of high school, and served 18 months on drug charges. The time behind bars not only motivated him to focus on a career as an entertainer, the experience gave him lots of new material for his act. He returned to the comedy club stage in Indiana before moving to Atlanta, GA where he was a regular at the Comedy Act Theater. His success there gave him the confidence to move to New York City, NY where he was quickly picked up by Def Comedy Jam, touring as well as appearing on the HBO show.

Epps was well on his way to becoming one of the bigger names in stand-up when he made his feature film debut in Vin Diesel’s “Strays” (1996). He continued with several more years of touring and making appearances on Def Comedy Jam when acting offers began to come in. He appeared in an episode of “The Sopranos” in 1999; the same year he learned that Ice Cube was looking to cast a co-star (effectively, Chris Tucker’s replacement) in the “Friday” (1995) sequel, “Next Friday” (2002). Epps headed for Los Angeles, where he invited Ice Cube to catch his set at The Comedy Store. Cube was impressed enough that the rapper-actor-producer asked Epps to try out for the part of Day-Day, which he eventually landed after weeks of auditions. “Next Friday” opened number one at the box-office, and was a breakthrough for Epps, who was already familiar to much of the audience from his stand-up work, but still had a hard time winning over those expecting a Chris Tucker clone. Nonetheless, Epps gave a consistent, though often improvised, performance as ineffectual Day-Day, a smoked-out loser stalked by his obsessive ex-girlfriend (Tamala Jones) and her brutish younger sister (Lady of Rage). The new talent in town was tapped for two more movies that year, appearing in DJ Pooh’s “3 Strikes” and supporting Jamie Foxx in the action comedy, “Bait.”

In 2001, Epps lent his voice to the role of Sonny in the family comedy “Dr. Dolittle 2″ and enjoyed a featured role in the blunt cinema classic “How High,” starring Redman and Method Man. Epps reteamed with Ice Cube twice during the following year, playing the bumbling thief to Cube’s bounty hunter in the action comedy “All About the Benjamins” (2002) before the “Friday” saga’s latest entry “Friday After Next” (2002). After turns in the uneven musical comedy, “The Fighting Temptations” (2003) and the dreadful horror sequel, “Resident Evil: Apocalypse” (2004), Epps played Ed Norton to Cedric the Entertainer’s Ralph Kramden in the rehash of the famed 1950s sitcom, “The Honeymooners” (2005). Though promising a fresh take on an oldie-but-goodie, the movie was blasted by critics who complained about a lack of chemistry between characters, a subservient bow to political correctness – particularly with Kramden’s famous threat to send Alice “to the moon!” – and a dearth of laughs, despite overwhelming comedic talent.

In a remake of another classic, Epps also appeared in “Guess Who?” (2005), an updated version of “Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner” (1967) that also hit number one at the box office. In probably his most memorable role of the year, Epps scored as a loud-mouthed garbage man in the ’70s roller disco comedy, “Roll Bounce” (2005). He rounded out a busy film year with a return to HBO, filming the stand-up special “Inappropriate Behavior” before inking a deal to develop a sitcom based on his misspent youth, entitled “The Unsuccessful Thug.”

After several years cutting his teeth on broad Hollywood comedies, Epps finally got a chance to branch out a bit with the 2006 romance “Something New,” which was nominated for Black Reel, Image, and Black Movie awards, including Best Film. Epps landed his first dramatic role in the 2007 critic’s pick, “Talk to Me,” with a supporting role in Kasi Lemmon’s biopic about controversial 1960s Philadelphia DJ Ralph “Petey” Greene. Epps was slated to appear in yet another installment in the “Resident Evil” series in late 2007, but audiences were far more anxious for the 2008 release of “The Grand.” The film – a largely improvised Christopher Guest-style mockumentary about a poker tournament in Las Vegas – put Epps alongside some of TV’s biggest comedians like Ray Romano, Cheryl Hines, and David Cross. Epps’ star would only continue to rise when he was cast – handpicked by Richard Pryor before his death – to portray him in a feature film adaptation of his life, with production for the untitled film slated to begin in 2007.

How To Love A Black Man Stage Play

| Filed under Past Events

Perfect Choice Productions presents Rene Margary’s How To Love A Black Man. This stage play is a strong realistic, psychological piece that delivers the message that self acceptance is imperative in order to adequately love another!

Black-Man Flyer

Centered around a house wife who has lost herself in her marriage. She has tried for eight years to balance “marriage duty” with a sense of individual accomplishments by supporting her husband’s dreams and aspirations; and resolving to be content with writing when her true love is performing. Her husband is a male psychologist with an alter ego who has a few unresolved issues, but instead of hashing them out at home with his mate: “he allows his eyes to roam out-side of the home”. This male psychologist is holding a two day symposium entitled:

How To Love A Black Man…

Ideally the registrants have come to learn how to cope with issues that affect the black man. Thus, they will be able to love themselves more and treat their mates better. However, many of them aren’t willing to admit that they have a problem with self or any other issues for that matter.
