ALANNAH MYLES "BLACK VELVET" QUEEN SPECIAL GUEST ON THE RAY SHASHO SHOW-BBS RADIO

A   L   A   N   N   A   H
M   Y   L   E   S
THE INCREDIBLE VOICE OF 
THE MEGA-HIT
"B  L  A  C  K    V  E  L  V  E  T"

Alannah Myles was born in Toronto, Canada listening to FM radio stations that introduced her to an international compilation of music. She was raised in the city of Toronto where she studied to become a graphic artist, splitting time on her family’s ranch in Buckhorn, Ontario and spent her early years competing as an equestrian on the Ontario A Circuit competing in Canada’s prestigious Royal Winter Fair prior to deciding that she would make music her calling. You may click on the link below to visit the family lodge.

Alannah appeared as an actor in TV commercials, modeled, styled wardrobe for local celebrities, worked as a makeup artist and consultant to pay for her early demo tapes in attempts to secure a record deal for her team. Though she was born to a privileged family, she chose to remain independent. After a decade of paying dues; performing concert venues, drinking establishments, nightclubs, coffee houses and hotel bars she spent five long years recording her debut album released by Atlantic Records (Warner Music Group).
Alannah was and will always be married to her music.
The ‘Alannah Myles’ first self titled album released in Canada in the spring of 1989 produced four Top 40 hits, “Love Is”, “Black Velvet”, “Lover of Mine”, and “Still Got This Thing”. Released internationally in 1990, Atlantic records finally hit pay dirt with her number one international smash, “Black Velvet”, winning a Grammy award for best female rock performance, along with several Canadian Juno Awards, a Diamond award for sales in excess of one million in Canada – the only artist who still retains this status for a debut record. After it’s first year of release Black Velvet received the ASCAP award for over one million radio plays and the ASCAP ‘Millionaire Award’ in 2005 for over 5 million radio plays. SOCAN in Canada awarded the songs, “Black Velvet” and “Lover Of Mine” each with an award for over 100,000 plays in Canada in 2005 with her #1 hit ‘Song Instead Of  A Kiss” to follow.

Her follow-up multi-platinum album, Rockinghorse (1992) received a Grammy nomination for the title track ‘Rockinghorse’ and three Canadian Juno Awards. Prior to her third, 1995 ‘A Lan Nah’ album she signed with manager, Miles Copeland after attending his annual songwriting retreats in France. After the sale of over eight million records she concluded her alliance with Atlantic Records and in 1997 Ark 21 Records released her fourth record Arrival (1997), which saw the top 40, hit Bad 4 You. 
Atlantic Records cemented Alannah’s release from her 7- 8 album deal with a parting gift, ‘The Very Best Of Alannah Myles (1999) compilation released on WMC and internationally on Ark 21/EMI, re-released as ‘Myles & More’ (2000) on Ark21/Universal Music Group containing hits from all four albums and is scheduled for termination. 
Funds from an out of court settlement with a national Canadian publication afforded Alannah the luxury of spending the time required to record, executive produce and co-write 9 of the 11 tracks for ‘Black Velvet’ leased to an indie label in Canada which has since 2013 been terminated. The album includes a contemporary remake of her classic hit, co-produced with Torontonian Mike Borkosky and Veronica Ferraro from France, mixed by renown producer Terry Brown.



The lease for Alannah’s independently owned 2009 CD, ‘Black Velvet’ was terminated on Sept 1, 2013, repackaged, retitled ’85bpm’ with added tracks including an original re-record of Black Velvet. Returned master recordings of her 1997 ‘A Rival’ CD are now distributed by tunecore.com re-released to all online digital stores and remixed in celebration of her 25th Anniversary.
Expect to hear more music and news for her 28th Anniversary season of 2018.






HeRE ARE A FEW OF Alannah’s INFAMOUS QUOTES 
“Justice is never blind…  She just takes your precious time”.
“A good song lives on til well after we’re gone. It has the power to inspire others and move people’s hearts without their even being fully aware.”
“One Hit Wonder… Yeah, one only needs to get it right once.
“I challenge anyone (including me) to better Black Velvet!”
“God put me on this planet to accomplish a certain amount of things.
Right now, I’m so far behind, I can never die!”

THREE DOG NIGHT LEGEND
E  X  C  L  U  S  I  V  E 
W/SURPRISE GUEST
ORIGINAL DRUMMER
F L O Y D   S N E E D
Chuck Negron, formerly of Three Dog Night, has been captivating audiences for over five decades with his iconic vocals, unique humor and brilliant storytelling. His catalog of hits are timeless and appeal to music fans of all ages. In 1967, Negron became a founding member of Three Dog Night; a vocal trio having roots in R&B, rock-n-roll, and urban doo wop, creating a style of music that was totally new and unique. The world was introduced to Negron and Three Dog Night in 1969 by the band’s first million-seller “One.” Driven by Negron’s solo lead vocals on four million-selling singles, three #1 records, (one which topped the charts for six weeks, “Joy to The World”) five top 5 hits and seven top 40 hits, he put and kept Three Dog Night on the charts for six years. 
Chuck performs upwards of 70 shows a year giving audiences the opportunity to hear his impressive volume of hits plus an exciting repertoire of new songs. He will also be announcing the release of multiple special projects in 2017, all while celebrating 25 years of sobriety after an infamous and very public life or death battle with addiction during his Three Dog Night years.
On June 30th of this year, Negron released the album he’s always wanted to release with daughters Charlie and Annabelle also featuring three previously unreleased Three Dog Night tracks. The album, titled Negron Generations is available now at ChuckNegron.com and on all digital music outlets including amazon.com. 
The unreleased tracks were recorded by the band in the mid-1970s prior to their first breakup in 1976. “The Letter,” “Save Our Ship” and “This Is Your Captain Calling” feature that iconic sound that could only come from the original vocalists of Three Dog Night; Cory Wells, Danny Hutton and Chuck Negron. Chuck, Charlie and Annabelle created a unique harmony blend that only a family can. The sisters’ lead vocals on The Ronettes’ “Be My Baby/Do I Love You” are compelling.

The evocative account of how Chuck Negron went from the height of worldwide fame and success, to the depths of delusion, despair and almost death is documented in hundreds of new photographs in the eleven new chapters of “Three Dog Nightmare” 4th Edition. The journey is very sad in places, uplifting in others as Negron tells it like it was. If you like the music of Three Dog Night, you will be captivated by the honest narratives about what was happening behind the scenes shared by Chuck Negron. 



Negron will be performing on the critically-acclaimed Happy Together Tour in the summer of 2018 along with …THE TURTLES featuring FLO & EDDIE …GARY PUCKETT AND THE UNION GAP …MARK LINDSAY Former Lead Singer of Paul Revere & The Raiders …THE ASSOCIATION…and THE COWSILLS.

I LOVE LUCY'S 'LITTLE RICKY'
VIRTUOSO DRUMMER
DAVID AND THE GIANTS

Keith Thibodeaux is the Executive Director of Ballet Magnificat! since 1993. Keith first came to national attention as the drum-playing son of Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz on the now classic "I Love Lucy" show. Hailed as a child prodigy, Keith started drumming at the age of two in Lafayette, LA. His abilities led him to a national tour, a starring role as "Little Ricky Ricardo" and various acting stints on television, including The Andy Griffith Show, Route 66, The Shirley Temple Playhouse, Hazel, and many more.
While attending the University of Louisiana in Lafayette, Keith joined and recorded with the then mainstream rock band, "David and the Giants." Keith left the group after several years, but, following his (and fellow band members) Christian conversion, the band regrouped under the same name and went on to become one of the nation’s top contemporary Christian music groups. As a drummer, singer, and songwriter for the Dove nominated "David and the Giants," Keith toured extensively for 10 years in the United States, Canada, Jamaica, and England, recording 9 albums before leaving the group in 1989 to pursue other interests.
Keith has been featured in such publications as Newsweek, People, Saturday Evening Post, Modern Drummer, CCM, and Classic Drummer Magazine. He has also been a guest on NBC's The Today Show, Entertainment Tonight, CBS's Good Morning America and The O'Reilly Show. In January of 1991, he joined his wife Kathy on the road with Ballet Magnificat! and in 1993, Keith became Executive Director.  In addition to his current responsibilities at Ballet Magnificat!, Keith still finds time for the drums and recording.
Keith's book, Life After Lucy, tells the story of his life as Little Ricky on the I Love Lucy show, and subsequent encounter with Jesus Christ as Savior. Life After Lucy is sold in bookstores and in the Gift Shop section of his website. Keith and Kathy have one daughter, Tara, who is a dancer and choreographer and married to Bryce Drew, former player in the NBA and head basketball coach at Valparaiso University.

HEART BY HEART FEATURING MUSIC LEGENDS STEVE FOSSEN & MIKE DEROSIER ON TOUR NOW!

'HEART BY HEART'
FEATURING MUSIC LEGENDS
STEVE FOSSEN & MIKE DEROSIER
EXCLUSIVE  INTERVIEW

HEART BY HEART FEATURING ORIGINAL MEMBERS OF HEART

The Band Includes Legendary Bassist Steve Fossen 
and Iconic Drummer Michael Derosier  
As Well As Breakout Vocalist Somar Macek 
Recreating the Music of HEART 
2013 ROCK AND ROLL HALL FAME INDUCTEES

HEART fans don’t have to feel so “Alone” anymore! With the recent announcement of an indefinite split between Ann and Nancy Wilson, music lovers will be happy to know that Heart By Heart, which features original founding HEART members Steve Fossen and Mike Derosier, have announced that it will be hitting the road with acclaimed vocalist Somar Macek leading the helm. 
The Heart By Heart tour will bring back all of the favorites from the multi-platinum selling band including “Barracuda,” “Crazy On You,” “Alone” and more by perfectly recreating the songs of  HEART. 
“We don’t consider ourselves a ‘tribute band’ but rather the second generation of HEART,” explained Fossen. “With Mike and me at the helm and Somar on vocals, we can, once again, help bring out those musical nuances and ignite the energy within our own band that made HEART one of the most beloved rock groups of our time.” 
In order to play the songs the way they were conceived, Fossen and Derosier have surrounded themselves with musicians who share their philosophy for excellence. Lead vocalist Somar Macek delivers a “jaw dropping performance” with her vocal range and stage presence, which is only enhanced by guitarist and vocalist Lizzy Daymont’s powerhouse performances. 
Rounding out the band is Randy Hansen, a guitarist known in Europe and America as the premier ‘Hendrix’ tribute artist who also collaborated with Francis Ford Coppola on “Apocalypse Now” and ultimately helped him win the Academy Award® for Best Original Score Written for a Motion Picture. Together, Heart By Heart has become a force to reckon with, with successful shows across the country and rave reviews wherever they perform.

STEVE HUNTER LEGENDARY GUITARIST INTERVIEWED ON THE RAY SHASHO SHOW

S   T   E   V   E     H   U   N   T   E   R
LEGENDARY GUITARIST
With L  O  U    R  E  E  D 
&  A  L  I  C  E    C  O  O  P  E  R
NEW RELEASE
'BEFORE THE LIGHTS GO OUT'
“Before The Lights Go Out” is long time Alice Cooper/Lou Reed Guitarist Steve Hunter's latest solo album. The cover art and title make a statement about his failing eyesight, but don't make the mistake of thinking this is a quiet wave goodbye. As soon as you put on the first track, you will know that this is more like a Blues Rock Declaration of Independence! There are sexy grooves, luscious guitar tones and melodies galore.
As with all Hunter's releases, there is some diversity and sound imagery, not least of which is Tienes Mi Coraz√≥n where alongside his nylon string improvisation comes the sound of his own heart. And listen out for Joe Satriani adding his fire to the heat of “Mojo Man.”
Also joining Steve on a couple of tracks are two great Bass players: Erik Scott can be heard on “Mojo Man,” Erik is also an Alice Cooper alumni. On “Under The Bodhi Tree” is Andy Stoller. Steve and Andy toured together with Tracy Chapman during the “Telling Stories” album period, most recently Andy has been touring with Ann Wilson of Heart.
Says Steve, “This album was a real joy for me on many levels. A big part of the inspiration and motivation that kept me going; was from all the people out there who had faith in me and encouraged me through the entire process with their donations and comments. It was really a wonderful experience having you all be a part of it. It's my deepest hope and desire that you all enjoy the music on this album as much as I enjoyed making it. Thank you and God bless!”

Steve Hunter is his own man; he has been around the block with a forty-five year career.From his 1973 solos on Alice Cooper's “Billion Dollar Babies” album, his legendary acoustic work on Peter Gabriel's “Solsbury Hill,” his “Intro” to Lou Reed's “Sweet Jane” and his searing opening solos on Aerosmith's version of “Train Kept A Rolling.” 

Most recently he can be heard on Alice Cooper's 2017 album “Paranormal” making this his ninth Cooper album appearance. The Deacon is not done yet but his life is evolving! He has challenges playing live now but his honed skill, tone, power and soul, is dished up on this hot plate of guitar driven instrumental tastiness.
