Gypsy Swing Cats

The San Diego based Gypsy Swing Cats perform an energetic, innovated blend of Swing, Jazz and Blues. Their music merges Gypsy melodies and rhythms, with the influences of American Jazz reminiscent of Paris in the 1930’s: cool, charming and classy. The music of the Gypsy Swing Cats is thoroughly modern infused with the wild, mysteriously free and exciting Gypsy flavors. band1

Gypsy Jazz, also known as Gypsy Swing, is a musical expression often said to have been started by guitarist Jean “Django” Reinhardt. He was foremost amongst a group of Gypsy guitarists working in and around Paris in the 1930’s. The music combined the exciting sound of American Jazz that transformed the old into the new. The guitarists supercharged the music further by adding Swing to the fire and melancholia of the unique Gypsy sound.

Big Boss Bubeleh

“Way into the windy halls of human emotions, Big Boss Bubeleh holds a light-as it is words, music, music and words that make this place sensible again. Influenced by our world’s expansive musical culture/history and geographically united in San Diego from much further pebbles, their language shifts frequently and so do the scales. And needing to move their ancient muses back into the foreground, their songs are categorized in gypsy jazzy klezmer pop.

Queen Nation

There is little doubt among the pure rock community that the legendary band Queen and lead performer Freddie Mercury earn high ranks as one of the most powerful and iconic groups in rock history. Upon his death in 1991, a huge void was left in the rock concert world, which to this day has not yet been matched.

Queen Nation, a tribute to Queen, was formed in 2004 by David Hewitt / DMHE Music Agency. Queen Nation consists of: Gregory Finsley on vocals & keyboards as Freddie Mercury, Mike McManus on guitar as Brian May, Pete Burke on drums as Roger Taylor, and Parker Combs on bass as John Deacon. The mission of the show is to carry on the musical torch and pay homage to the golden age of vintage Queen concerts. In 2013 Queen Nation was recognized as The World’s Greatest Queen Tribute by Mark Cuban, Ryan Seacrest and their cutting edge network AXS TV. Queen Nation was given a 1hr LIVE national broadcast from the Roxy in Hollywood, to 40 million viewers. A coinciding compilation album was released by AXS TV featuring two tracks recorded by Queen Nation. Most recently, Queen Nation was selected by The Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim baseball team to perform on the infield of Angel Stadium as part of their Flashback Weekend.

Queen Nation’s live 100-minute production of Queen’s greatest hits preserves the image, sound, and stage persona of vintage Queen. Audiences are amazed at the accuracy of Queen Nation’s live retrospective journey through such Queen songs as We Will Rock You – We Are The Champions – Bohemian Rhapsody – Crazy Little Thing Called Love – You’re My Best Friend – Another One Bites The Dust – Under Pressure and many more. They have performed in front of thousands of people at casinos, fairs, sports arenas and private affairs.

Chad Prather

Chad Prather was entertaining audiences on television as early as two years old. The desire to be onstage started early. He began acting at the age of 6 and by the age of 20 he was traveling all over the world – from Africa to Southeast Asia, from Russia to Central America – using his communication skills to influence international leaders with humor and inspiration. Eventually Prather’s communication skills opened doors for him to move into the corporate arena of motivational speaking and writing.

Prather is known for his way with words. He is a comedian, armchair philosopher, musician, and observational humorist. He is often referred to as “the modern day Will Rogers.” He is a fast-talking combination of Lewis Grizzard and Jeff Foxworthy. Originally from Augusta, GA Chad now calls the Fort Worth, TX area home. He grew up working with horses (an industry he is actively involved in) and is often recognized by his ever-present cowboy hat. His social media viral video are counted in the hundreds of millions. Many recognize him from his fast talking, rapid fire rants from the front seat of his truck. CNN has labeled him the “Pick-up Pundit” and Fox News’ Tucker Carlson has called Prather, “supernaturally articulate.” He is known for his comedic family stories told from an adult perspective onstage.
