GORDON GOODWIN'S LITTLE PHAT BAND
From the Grammy and Emmy Winning Creative Mind of Gordon Goodwin
21 time Grammy Nominee, 4 time Grammy Winner, 9 Emmy Nominations, and 3 Emmy Wins - Gordon Goodwin offers up the Little Phat Band, in the wake of his famous GG's Big Phat Band. A more intimate musical experience with the players in the smaller ensemble, enhancing everyone's taste with a Little Phat. Featuring added singer Vangie Gunn, known for her work on Star Trek Beyond, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story and Jurassic World ~ who thrills with her "nailed it" jazz to pop vocals, and their latest single release for the very Smooth Radio friendly "Through the Fire". Gordon Goodwin's Little Phat Band captures all the same dynamic energy of it's larger internationally acclaimed cousin, Gordon Goodwin's Big Phat Band; with more emphasis on spontaneity and improvisation, and covers a range of styles, from swing to funk to Latin to pop! Goodwin has built a larger-than-life reputation throughout the music industry for his composing, arranging and playing skills. Ray Charles, Christina Aguilera, Johnny Mathis, Alejandro Fernandez, Patti Austin, Toni Braxton, John Williams, Natalie Cole, David Foster, Sarah Vaughan, Mel Torme', Simone', Brian McKnight and Quincy Jones are just a few of the artists with whom he has worked. Goodwin has also conducted world-renowned symphony orchestras in Atlanta, Dallas, Utah, Seattle, Toronto and London.
Goodwin's cinematic scoring and orchestration craft can be heard on such films as Get Smart, Glory Road, National Treasure, The Incredibles, Remember The Titans, Armageddon, The Majestic, Con Air, Gone In 60 Seconds, Enemy of the State, Star Trek Nemesis, Avengers 2, Draft Day, Grudge Match, The Sorcerer's Apprentice, Escape to Witch Mountain, and even the classic cult film Attack Of The Killer Tomatoes. Goodwin's soundtrack to Looney Tunes' Bah HumDuck! - a wacky Bugs Bunny and Daffy Duck riff on the classic A Christmas Carol - also features the Big Phat Band's patented sound.
BIFFLE and SHOOSTER
The Kino Lorber film release spin off Broadway's Nick Santa Maria and Disney's Will Ryan
- Rondo Award 2019 nominees
The comedy team of Benny Biffle and Sammy Shooster starred in a cornucopia of 1930s comedies that are still enjoyed by theater-goers throughout the world.
Kino-Lorber’s recent DVD release of some of their award-winning classic shorts has not only brought their antics to a new audience, also streaming on Amazon Prime, but it has brought “the boys” themselves out of retirement! Yes, those song & dance funsters Biffle & Shooster are once again trodding the boards and looking and sounding as great as ever in the live stage theaters – they’ve barely aged a decade!
If you miss the Stooges, or Edgar Kennedy, heres a bizarre bill of goods for committed film fans in search of "live show" retro fun. Disney credited Will Ryan and Broadway's Nick Santa Maria perform as tthe madcap ’30s comedy team in a series of imaginatively re-created broad short subjects, and a good old time "live" radio show all designed to fit the style of the era. It works like gangbusters for those who relish their vintage slapstick laughs. Biffle and Shooster completely convince as low-comedy film personalities of an earlier era. The thickest, corniest, lame-brainiest schtick one can imagine. It’s a polished act!
“My favourite current classic comedy team!”
– Ian Whitcomb, author of “Tin Pan Alley”, “The Beckoning Fairground”, etc.
“Mordant wit and harmony combined!”
- animation voice legend June Foray
PARTY TIME with HEAVY METAL / Pop MASHUPS
Rock Sugar is the brainchild of guitarist/producer Chuck Duran and voice-over legend, Emmy nominated and Peabody Award Winner Jess Harnell. The band takes pop hits and melds them together with heavy rock classics to create something new and spectacular. Unlike other artists who utilize computer technology to mash songs together, Rock Sugar, actually perform the music in re-imagined form; like Metallica meets Journey, Queen meets Motley Crue, AC/DC meets Madonna, or Rick Springfield meets Ozzy Osbourne. It’s rock and roll for people with ADD…and great taste. The debut album was so well done that a certain rock star with a big ego got butt hurt and the band received a cease and desist order not to sell it anymore. This is one of the many reason’s the band’s long-awaited sophomore album has never been made. But wait… a new album is about one-third complete and should be out in about six months with the bold claim that it will be even better than Reimaginator…Hard to imagine. Harnell uses his vocal impressionist skills as lead singer of this critically acclaimed worlds first pop/metal mash up band, with worldwide success playing for audiences as large as 100,000 at a time and opening for such legendary bands as AC/DC and Aerosmith.
