Subject: Cheap Trick

With over 5,000 performances spanning four decades, 20 million records sold, 29 movie soundtracks, and 40 Gold and Platinum recording awards, Cheap Trick is undoubtedly one of the most influential classic rock groups of the past 50 years. The band was formed in 1974 and while it has evolved throughout the years, Cheap Trick has continued to reach mainstream and critical success. Hits such as “I Want You To Want Me,” “Dream Police,” and “Surrender” have cemented the group as one of America’s top rock ‘n’ roll bands of all time.

Since the 70’s they have been blending elements of pop, punk and even metal in a way that is instantly catchy and recognizable. Cheap Trick is part of the very fiber of American music, inspiring and delighting generations with their unique union of massive melodies and razor blade riffs, their own special brand of mischievous wit and maximum rock ‘n’ roll.

Recently inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, Cheap Trick is set to impact still another era with the spectacular new album Bang, Zoom, Crazy… Hello, their 17th studio collection and first in more than five years. The album charted at #31, their highest album debut chart position in 28 years! The constant core of the band remains one of a kind – three guys, four chords and tunes that will last in perpetuity.

Subject: Peabo Bryson

Peabo Bryson has established a career as one of the premier male vocalists in contemporary music of the last quarter century. Possessing a beautifully rich, almost operatic voice, this two-time Grammy® Award winner has survived and prospered despite the passage of time and changes in popular musical trends.

With twenty albums to his credit, Peabo Bryson has enjoyed an unprecedented, across-the-board level of international success. Bryson has the distinction of being the first artist in music history to have separate records topping four different charts.

With several gold records, and a multitude of chart-topping R&B and pop hits, such as “Feel the Fire,” “I’m So Into You,” “Tonight I Celebrate My Love,” and “If Ever You’re In My Arms Again,” Bryson truly penetrated the hearts of soul fans everywhere. Hits followed with his first R&B #1 single “Show & Tell,” (a remake of the late Al Wilson and the smash “Can You Stop the Rain”).

But it was two songs for Disney animated films that earned Peabo his two Grammys®. The first was 1991’s “Beauty and the Beast” with international pop singer Celine Dion and the very next year, “A Whole New World (Aladdin’s Theme)” from Aladdin which he performed with Regina Belle.
