    PERFORMANCE DESCRIPTION

    There is one undeniable fact about Johnny Gill’s Grammy-nominated, multi-platinum career. The singer/songwriter/producer sure knows how to rub music fans the right way.
    Gill further fortified that inimitable legacy with his release, Game Changer II (J Skillz Records/Kalvary). Like its predecessor, Game Changer, Gill’s eighth solo studio album Game Changer II arrived packed with an avalanche of hits. In fact, the singer quickly claimed an R&B No. 1 with the set’s lead single “Soul of a Woman.” the song praises the power of women. The poignant song opens a rare window into Johnny’s personal life as it was primarily inspired by his mother, Annie Mae. “I’ve been holding on to this Greg Pagani song since the last album,” Johnny shares, “listening to the demo for my own personal pleasure. It’s not your everyday song,” 
    Discovered at 16 years old, he released two albums through Atlantic Records. He next joined now-iconic boy band New Edition, helping them segue melodically from novelty to longevity on timeless classics such as “If It Isn’t Love” and “Can You Stand the Rain.” As a linchpin of legendary Motown Records’ ‘90s comeback roster, Gill exploded as a solo artist with an indelible one-two punch from producers Jimmy Jam & Terry Lewis (“Rub You the Right Way”) and L.A. Reid & Babyface (“My, My, My”). Alongside Gerald Levert and Keith Sweat, Gill established L.S.G., the powerful R&B supergroup behind the sexy smash “My Body.” He also formed another supergroup, Heads of State, with New Edition peers Bobby Brown and Ralph Tresvant.
    Johnny Gill is one of the few artist to score #1 hits with two different groups, duo and also as a solo artist.  He’s one of the top legendary artist to have hits on the top 10 R&B charts for three decades 80’s, 90’s and 2000’s. He’s accomplished a lot in his career as a veteran in this business and deserves a lot of credit for what he’s done in over 40 years in this business.


    Whatever Johnny Gill has coming next, fans can rest assure of one thing. He never just plays the game. He changes it … every time.

    PERFORMANCE DESCRIPTION

    Back in the late ’90s, the guitarist and founding member of “Ridin’ The Storm Out” – Rick Hunter, had the honor of playing and performing with REO’s founding member Gary Richrath for almost 3 years. Their chemistry was evident from the first chords that they played together.


    Move forward to 2017, He decided to form an REO Speedwagon Tribute in search of players that loved REO’s music. After being in many successful Tribute bands since 2002, he embarked on celebrating Gary’s Richrath’s contribution to music history by forming this band’s library of hit songs in a tribute for the fans…


    Knowing the signature vocal harmonies and musical style were key ingredients to reproduce REO’s sound, the quest was a challenge, but ultimately achieved after joining forces with 2 young unbelievably multi-talented musicians, and 2 other seasoned players, bringing all the pieces together to form –


    “Ridin’ The Storm Out” – Tribute To REO Speedwagon… The name comes from the band’s 1st hit in the mid-’70s. REO’s signature song that ends each of their shows.

    PERFORMANCE DESCRIPTION
    Nicolas Reyes has been the leader and co-founder of the Gipsy Kings for well over 30 years. In the past three decades, they have
    dominated the World Music charts and sold more than 14 million albums worldwide. Their platinum compilation, The Best of the Gipsy Kings, was charting for over a year upon its release and their ninth studio album, Savor Flamenco, was awarded the Grammy for Best
    World Music Album in 2013.

    This iconic legacy began when Nicolas’ father, Jose Reyes, formed a celebrated flamenco duo with Manitas de Plata (which boasted fans as famed as Miles Davis and Pablo Picasso). When the pair parted ways, the elder Reyes became even more popular upon starting his own band, backed by his son, called Los Reyes. In later years, Nicolas headed out on his own and began playing in the town of Arles in the south of France. He traveled throughout the country, busking on the streets of Saint-Tropez, playing wherever he could. Having adopted the perpetual motion of the gypsy lifestyle, his band eventually translated “Los Reyes” and became the Gipsy Kings.

    The band’s music went on to fuse with popular culture. In addition to the accolades above, the traveling Gipsy Kings have played some of the world’s greatest stages, from the Hollywood Bowl to Royal Albert Hall as well as hitting the big screen. Their rendition of “Hotel California” was included in the film The Big Lebowski and the HBO series Entourage. The 2010 film Toy Story 3 featured a Gipsy Kings version of the movie’s popular, Randy Newman-penned theme, “You’ve Got a Friend in Me”. The Gipsy Kings recently featured in a Big Lebowski spinoff The Jesus Rolls with Reyes appearing in person with the director and star, John Turturro, for some of the promotion.

    As active as this remarkable collective remains, they are also confident in the future of their legacy. “Even though it’s been 30 years, we
    want to keep on making new music because it’s our life. It’s who we are,” says Nicolas Reyes. “But I think there will be a time when we
    pass down the Gipsy Kings to our sons”.

    30 years is an eternity in pop music but the story of the Gipsy Kings featuring Nicolas Reyes has the depth to endure. Theirs is a music
    that extends through generations, to the sounds of their ancestors—Spanish Romani people who fled the Catalonia region during the
    Spanish Civil War—and reflects the vibrantly eclectic and peripatetic history of the gitanos.
