Description:

Acclaimed TV late night show host, admired stand-up comedian, best-selling children’s book author, much-in-demand corporate speaker, lovable TV and movie voice-over artist, pioneering car builder and mechanic, and philanthropist…it’s no wonder that Jay Leno is widely characterized as “the hardest working man in show business.”

Jay Leno’s late night television ratings domination included more than two decades of “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno,” winning every consecutive quarter of his hosting over the past 19 years.  After resuming hosting the 11:35 PM program following its one-time interruption, he made it once again the consistent and uninterrupted ratings leader for late night, once again leading all of the ensuing quarters handily, under the supervision throughout of executive producer Debbie Vickers.  In the process, he has been honored by the Television Academy with an Emmy for “Outstanding Comedy, Variety or Music Series.”  “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno” has also taken home the trophy for “Favorite Late Night Show” in the annual TV Guide Awards determined by voting viewers, and he was recently installed in the Television Academy’s Broadcast Hall of Fame.

Description:

More than 27 years after Travis Tritt launched his music career, the Southern rock influenced artist continues to display strong sales activity, sell out shows, and stay true and relevant to country music fans across the globe.  Continuously performing shows and withholding a heavy appearance schedule, Tritt is proving to be unstoppable.

“Country Club,” “Help Me Hold On,” “I’m Gonna Be Somebody,” and “Drift Off to Dream” peaked at numbers two and three on the Hot Country Singles & Tracks charts; all which led for Tritt to win Top New Male Artist award from Billboard and the CMA Horizon Award (now known as the New Artist Award).  Additionally, in 1991, the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) marked Tritt’s debut album Country Club as certified Platinum.

Two years after his debut, Travis’ sophomore album, It’s All About to Change, was released.  Literally speaking, this album changed everything when the album shipped three million copies and all four of its singles reached the top five on the country music charts.  Along with his first album, this release became triple-platinum certified by the RIAA.

As recently as 2015, Tritt topped the SoundScan Top 200 Catalog Country Albums chart for over 60 consecutive weeks with 15 weeks spent at No. 1 and 35+ weeks notched in a Top 5 position.  Tritt’s compilation album, Very Best of Travis Tritt, which was released in 2007, saw a resurgence of sales that started in Nov. 2014.  The 20-track album features some of Tritt’s biggest hits, including “It’s a Great Day to Be Alive,” “Here’s a Quarter,” and “Anymore.”

Description:

Martin Nievera, a singer, songwriter and actor, was born in the Philippines and grew up in Hawaii, listening to his balladeer father sing with the group A Society of Seven. Inspired by his father’s success, Nievera started down his own musical path, returning to the Philippines in 1982 to launch his own singing career.

In that same year, Nievera released his first LP, Martin…Take One, which quickly achieved platinum success. He then began co-hosting a variety TV show, ASAP ROCKS, with his future wife, Pops Fernandez. By 1984, he had released his second LP, Martin and Pops Twogether, in celebration of their marriage. When the marriage ended in 1998, Nievera wrote his ex-wife a song, “Forever,” which rose to quadruple platinum. Two sequel songs, “Forever Forever” and “Return to Forever,” have become best-sellers for this multi-talented artist.

Nievera’s TV career spans decades and he recently celebrated the 25th anniversary of his reality show. In 2012, he performed with mega-star Sharon Cuneta for a Valentine’s Day show billed as “Once in a Lifetime." Nievera is inspired and driven by the memory of his father’s success. He considers himself a work in progress, and it’s work that’s certainly paying off, with hits like “Be My Lady” and “Each Day with You.”

Info:
 
Dan Finnerty caught America’s attention as the foul-mouthed wedding singer in the box-office smash Old School, performing his now-infamous rendition of “Total Eclipse of the Heart,” as well as his appearance as the sleazy bat-mitzvah singer in Starsky & Hutch and again as the inappropriate wedding singer in the record-breaking hit, The Hangover.
 
What started as a drunken joke for Finnerty singing “I Am Woman” at a karaoke bar has spiraled out of control into The Dan Band – a cult phenomenon that has garnered rave reviews from The New York Times, The L.A. Times, Rolling Stone, and Variety among others, and prompted Entertainment Weekly to dub it “the hottest ticket in Hollywood.”
 
The Dan Band plays to sold-out crowds from Los Angeles to New York and has appeared on numerous shows including The Tonight Show, Jimmy Kimmel Live, Ellen, The Late Late Show, Last Call with Carson Daly, Last Comic Standing, The Guys Choice Awards and caught the attention of Steven Spielberg, who signed on to executive produce Dan’s one hour concert special The Dan Band: I Am Woman, directed by McG.

They perform original music, written by David John, as well as powerful songs about America. In their unique style, they sing about cowboys, horses, soldiers, the Old West, and nature at its grandest.
