Sugar Blue -  1985 Grammy Award-winning harmonica virtuoso Sugar Blue is nor your typical bluesman.  Born James Whiting, he was raised in Harlem, NY, where his mother was a singer and dancer at the fabled Apollo Theater.  Blue began his career as  street musician and made his first recordings in 1975 with legendary blues figures Brownie McGhee and Roosevelt Sykes.  He has performed with the Rolling Stones and numerous jazz and blues musicians in the ensuing years.   From his website (www.sugar-blue.com), "Sugar Blue  incorporates what he has learned into his visionary and singular style, technically dazzling yet wholly soulful.

He bends, shakes, spills flurries of notes with simultaneous precision and abandon, combining dazzling technique with smoldering expressiveness and gives off enough energy to light up several city square blocks…

And sings too! His distinctive throat tends to be overlooked  in the face of his instrumental virtuosity – he’s got a rich, sensual voice with a whisper of huskiness which by itself would be something out of the ordinary. But oh, there’s that harmonica again…"


Joan Curtis -  Five-time author, Joan C. Curtis' her latest book, a mystery/suspense thrillerThe Clock Strikes Midnight, is scheduled to be published on November 25th. As a speaker, trainer and regular show guest, she provides Radio/TV and Blog audiences a fun, thrilling and engaging conversation about her book, books as a whole, the creative writing process, and more.


Jim Brickman - Consummate piano artist, Jim Brickman in on tour currently and has a new Christmas CD, The Songs and Spirit of Christmas, which can be preordered now at Amazon.com but will go on sale on October 15.  This new CD features Kenny Rogers, Jana Kramer, John Oates, and more. 



Susan Toney - Celebrated as a poignant lyricist, accomplished musician and transcendent vocalist, American artist Susan Toney showcases a fusion of pop, country, roots, blues and rock in her latest CD project entitled LOVE IS THE CURE-THE ESSENTIAL COLLECTION.  Encompassing the influences of her heritage, Toney delivers a transparent, introspective collection of songs steeped in spirituality—revealing subtle revelations of faith, renewed wisdom and confidence in her message and her craft—all mused by a new chance on life—a miracle.


Susan miraculously survived a rollover car crash in November 2003 and her survival was grave. But with a faithful heart, unbridled spirit, and a strength that rushed through her veins, she recognized the tragic accident as an ultimate part of God’s plan and a saving Grace. Susan found renewed faith, hope and determination to further pursue the very reason she is here—to use her voice to help others. A scholar of the performing and creative arts, Susan Toney is a singer/songwriter, recording and performing artist, actor and book author who has so much more to live for…so much more to say.



Spencer Baker, Philip Fortenberry, and Joan Sobel - Presented by Opera Las Vegas, Spencer Baker and Philip Fortenberry appear in "Dueling Pianos" on August 31st.  Internationally acclaimed vocal coach and pianist Spencer Baker has invited composer, pianist, and conductor, Philip Fortenberry to join him for this event.  The singing guest for the evening is Joan Sobel who has sung leading operatic roles in the US and Canada.


Frank DeAngelo - Has appeared in two movies:  Real Gangsters and The Big Fat Stone and is working on a third, has a TV show in Toronto, "Being Frank," and has a new single, "Now."



Kanisha K - Reared in a small town two hours outside of Detroit Kanisha K has been exposed to all of Motown’s finest as well as the best of Chicagoan traditions; from an urban, sultry-lushness that goes ‘pop’ to rock that dances amidst songs of ill-fated lovers. Kanisha K, for all intents and purposes, is living [chasing] the dream of every small town girl with uptown talent. However, that’s where Kanisha’s normalcy ends. After all, not every small town girl (let alone any girl) has already been produced by Grammy-winning producers (Jason Miles/Craig Bauer), had two high-charting hit singles – “My Another Day” and “I Found Love (Just In Time For Christmas)” – and is still relatively unknown.


Jan McInnis - Finding the Funny - Comedian and comedy writer who specializes in comedy shows and humor keynotes for corporations and associations, Jan left a marketing career over 19 years ago to become a comedian and comedy writer.  She tours the country in the production of "The Baby Boomer Comedy Show" and is the author of Finding the Funny Fast: How to Create Quick Humor to Connect with Clients, Coworkers and Crowds.  Her newest book is Convention Comedian: Stories and Wisdom from Two Decades of Chicken Dinners and Comedy Clubs.
