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:

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.”

Description:

Iconic entertainer Brenda Lee continues dazzling audiences across the globe with her warm stage presence and can belt out rockabilly, country and pop standards with equal conviction.  She’s the only entertainer to be inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame, Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Rockabilly Hall of Fame.  Lee has sold more than 100 million records worldwide and charted in more categories – including pop, rhythm & blues, rock, easy listening and country – than any other woman in the history of recorded music.  Last December, Lee dashed to the top of the charts with “Rockin Around the Christmas Tree” to No. 1 on Billboard’s Country Streaming Songs and hit the top forty on the Billboard Hot 100 for the first time since 1961.  “Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree” also topped Billboard Holiday Airplay at No. 1.  Lee delivers a vast catalogue of hits with the kicking, countrified upstart of “Jambalaya” and “That’s All You Gotta Do,” the pert, jaunty rocker of “Sweet Nothin’s” and “Let’s Jump the Broomstick,” the heartbroken balladeer of “I’m Sorry” and “Break it to Me Gently,” the sophisticated songstress of “I Just Want to Be Wanted” and “You Can Depend on Me,” and the country storyteller of “Big Four Poster Bed” and “Nobody Wins.”

Info:

Todd Snider is an American singer-songwriter with a musical style that combines Americana, alt-country, and folk.
 
Snider’s 1994 debut album on MCA, entitled Songs for the Daily Planet, was named for the bar where Snider used to play regularly in Memphis.  On that album were the minor hits “Talkin’ Seattle Grunge Rock Blues” – a folk song about the early ‘90s grunge scene, featuring a band that “refused to play” – and “Alright Guy,” which later became the title cut of Gary Allan’s 2001 album.
 
He released two more albums for MCA, Step Right Up and Viva Satellite before moving to John Prine’s Oh Boy Records where he made Happy to Be Here, New Connection, Near Truths and Hotel Rooms, East Nashville Skyline, and Peace Love and Anarchy.  That Was Me: The Best of Todd Snider 1994-1998 was released on the Hip-O Records label in August 2005.
 
Snider’s next studio album, The Devil You Know, was released on October 14, 2008, and reached #1 on the Americana Airplay Chart on October 27, 2008.  His album, The Excitement Plan, was released on June 9, 2009, on the YepRoc label and was produced by Don Was.

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.

Info:

Todd Snider is an American singer-songwriter with a musical style that combines Americana, alt-country, and folk.
 
Snider’s 1994 debut album on MCA, entitled Songs for the Daily Planet, was named for the bar where Snider used to play regularly in Memphis.  On that album were the minor hits “Talkin’ Seattle Grunge Rock Blues” – a folk song about the early ‘90s grunge scene, featuring a band that “refused to play” – and “Alright Guy,” which later became the title cut of Gary Allan’s 2001 album.
 
He released two more albums for MCA, Step Right Up and Viva Satellite before moving to John Prine’s Oh Boy Records where he made Happy to Be Here, New Connection, Near Truths and Hotel Rooms, East Nashville Skyline, and Peace Love and Anarchy.  That Was Me: The Best of Todd Snider 1994-1998 was released on the Hip-O Records label in August 2005.
 
Snider’s next studio album, The Devil You Know, was released on October 14, 2008, and reached #1 on the Americana Airplay Chart on October 27, 2008.  His album, The Excitement Plan, was released on June 9, 2009, on the YepRoc label and was produced by Don Was.
