Melissa Etheridge


Melissa Etheridge digs deep into her soul to deliver emotionally charged lyrics with that bluesy rasp of a voice, hinting of personal pain and life experience. Her self-penned anthems and ballads are honest and empowering, illustrating that strength comes from struggling and the ultimate realization that burdens don’t have to be carried alone.
She has always approached music with the same intensity she devotes to life and causes near and dear to her heart. She is a cancer survivor and a success story.
Etheridge is one of rock music’s boldest female icons, not only because of her thought-provoking songs with powerful meaning, but because she also practices what she preaches with activism, acceptance and community involvement.

Brian Wilson


Brian Wilson is arguably the greatest American composer of popular music in the rock era. His music has become more than hit records. He changed the musical landscape and in the process, he changed musical history.
Born and raised in Hawthorne, California, Wilson formed the Beach Boys back in the ’60s—with his two younger brothers, Dennis and Carl, along with cousin Mike Love, and school friend Alan Jardine—becoming one of the most successful American rock bands in history.

The Beatleshow


More than a few years ago, the idea of a tribute show encapsulated but only a couple of go-to performers. There was Elvis, of course, with Neil Diamond popping up a distant second. These were easy targets to give tribute because they were solo acts. You just needed one guy to nail the vocals and hit or miss the looks, throw in some dancing girls, lights and a group of talented musicians and you had a show. You can almost hear Mickey Rooney saying, “Let’s take it to Broadway”—that is, you can hear him if you are of a certain seasoned age. If you don’t know who Mickey Rooney is, well, you probably don’t remember the real Elvis and know that Neil Diamond is some old dude who just won’t give it up.
