WHO:

randy rogon is an American rock singer hailing from the fertile Las Vegas music scene, which has spawned in recent years such notable groups as The Killers, Panic at the Disco, Five Finger Death Punch, Adelita’s Way, Otherwise, and Imagine Dragons.

Released in October 2013, rogon’s debut single, “The Credits Roll,” was mixed & engineered by Grammy Award-Winning Producer/Engineer Mark Needham, known for his artist-breaking work with The Killers, Sick Puppies, Neon Trees and Imagine Dragons.  Already “The Credits Roll” is receiving substantial industry buzz.

rogon’s related promotional efforts have also created a stir. His debut music video for “The Credits Roll” was shot using RED Cameras by producer-director Brandon Christensen, features beautiful actress/model Brittani Jenee,’ and will be presented for consideration for multiple awards.  High impact photographer Fred Morledge has been engaged to capture his brand and image.

rogon has opened for many national acts, and was featured on “The Rocking Comedy Show.” His single and upcoming debut record will be released on Los Angeles-based World Movement Records, which distributes through LRT/INgrooves Fontana/Universal Music Group.

WHAT:

American rock singer randy rogon (pronounced “row-gone”) has signed to management with Eggman Global Artists (EGA), founded by indie music guru Steve Eggleston, aka The Eggman.  EGA will work closely with World Movement Records/UMG to chart rogon’s debut single, “The Credits Roll,” complete his first LP, saturate the Triple A radio rock market, secure a major label deal, and book his supporting 2014-15 U.S. tour.

“I’m very excited to sign randy,” says Eggman Global’s Eggleston.  “He’s a top-notch artist of the highest caliber who will make a very distinctive mark.  7x Grammy-winning producer Steve Thompson has already expressed interest in completing randy’s record, which if we can pull it off will be an absolute career-changer.  Steve has 150+ diamond, platinum and gold records under his belt, and there’s no doubt in my mind that he’ll launch randy’s debut into the stratosphere.”

“I’m always excited to work with a strong team that can support and present my music at its highest level,” says rogon. “With ‘greats’ like Steve Eggleston and Lamont Patterson of World Movement Records at the helm, I have no doubt this quest will be a successful one …. Cheers!”

BIOS:

randy rogon is an American rock singer-songwriter, guitar player and drummer who has earned his chops working both the country and rock markets. His early influences were diverse, but gravitated towards bands like The Foo Fighters, Kid Rock, and Bush. The inspiration for his debut single “The Credits Roll” is the incredible feeling of love lost that could only be recreated by a magical drug. He has opened for numerous major artists and in mid 2013 was picked up by World Movement Records/ LRT/INgrooves Fontana/Universal Music Group. Most recently he signed with music guru Steve Eggleston of Eggman Global Artists for management.

 

###

“Moving the world with our music” is the WORLD MOVEMENT RECORDS’s motto. Lamont Patterson, the CEO and label founder, grew up playing music. After high school, his cousin Bobby Sanders, manager of Little Anthony, The Imperials and The Young Hearts, included him in their rehearsals. In college Lamont sang and wrote with touring group New Birth, opening for the O’Jays, Blue Magic, The Four Tops and other Motown greats. His first group was The Elements of Peace, an R & B group, in which he sang lead and played tenor saxophone produced by Aaron Neville. This opened the doors for him to work with Grammy-winners Aaron Neville, Quincy Jones, Marvin Gaye, Ike and Tina Turner, Bill Summers, Big Boy, and Side Effect, in collaborative projects. In 1990, he launched WORLD MOVEMENT RECORDS, which released Platinum Records for Ghetto Hippie and Bobby Caldwell,  and a Gold Album for Jeffery Osborne (Prince, Morris Day, and Warner Bros), amongst others. As the industry changed, so did Lamont, who moved WMR into the digital age, supporting artists from music distribution to merchandizing and publishing, to TV and film roles. In 2013, WMRs signed rock singer  randy rogon, releasing his critically-acclaimed debut single “The Credits Roll,” and 15-year old Drew Raber, whose single “Questions” hit the Billboard pop chart in December 2012.

EGA will focus on taking ANOTHER JOURNEY to another level, enhancing the bands already global standing for public and private bookings.

“World class JOURNEY tribute bands are very hard to come by,” says Eggman Global’s Eggleston.  “Finding a front man who can deliver the incredible vocal prowess of Steve Perry is like hitting the one on the Roulette Wheel.  It happens, but not very often.”

ANOTHER JOURNEY also features exceptional musicianship and remarkable note-for-note replications of original live JOURNEY concerts.  Guitarist Steve Valenti says: “On many occasions we’ve been approached by fans who thought we were the real JOURNEY. Why are you playing such a small venue?” one guy asked. “It’s crazy, but we love it.”

###

BIOS:

FRANKY DEE,  originally from New York,  performs all the lead vocals and is by far one of the best Steve Perry impersonators there is, with many successful years of Journey tribute vocal performances under his belt. He has performed with many of rock’s greatest players, such as Vito Bratta from White Lion and Ted Poley from Danger Danger, and alongside local legends Twisted Sister and Zebra, just to name a few.

STEVE VALENTI has mastered the exact lead and rhythm guitar stylings of Journey guitarist Neal Schon and performs them with amazing accuracy and sounds. Steve also has an extensive history in the rock industry and performed with many national artists over the years, such as John Elephante of Kansas, Lesie West of  Mountain, and Rodger Glover of Deep Purple.

Jim “Animal” Raleigh, on drums and percussion, covers all the past and present monster Journey drummers, from Steve Smith to Deen Castronovo, with complete accuracy and years of hard-hitting shows under his belt as well.  Jim’s original music was favorably reviewed by the likes of Geffen, Warner Bros, Sony, and Electra.

RON RICHERSON is super accurate on the keys and stylings of all the sounds of Jonathan Cain with many years of touring the world with the U.S. Air Force as the best of the best alongside many famous musicians.

CLIFFORD LATSHAW  takes the stage as the famous Ross Valory on Bass and all his backing vocals.  A graduate of the Berklee School of Music, Clifford has mastered all of Valory’s Journey stylings.

Eggman Global Signs to Management Grammy Award-Winning, Multi-Platinum Music Producer, Arranger, Mixer & Writer Steve Thompson

Profile_SteveThompson_Cropped

Steve Thompson is an uncompromising, game-changing creative force in music – as music  producer / arranger / mixer / songwriter / brand maven.

Steve started his career as a musician and club DJ. From there, he produced and mixed some of the biggest dance hits of the era, transitioning into electronic and alternative music. This lead to Steve working with the biggest pop artists of the time.

From there Steve produced Tesla’s three initial multi-platinum records and mixed Guns N Roses’ epic debut release, “Appetite of Destruction,”  which sold 30+ million records.  Then he proceeded to compile nonstop credits as producer, arranger, and mixer on 6 Grammy Winners, dozens of Grammy nominations, 150+ Gold & Platinum albums and singles, 2 Diamond Awards, and countless #1 hits.

Working seamlessly in multiple genres, Steve’s staggering successes range  from rock (Korn, Metallica, Soundgarden, Rolling Stones, John Lennon), R&B (Earth, Wind & Fire, Aretha Franklin), and pop (Whitney Houston, Madonna), to hiphop (Wu-Tang, Public Enemy), EDM and reggae (Steel Pulse, Ziggy Marley, Snow).

Many of Steve’s songs have also found homes in blockbuster motion pictures (“Return of the Jedi,” “End of Days,” “Karate Kid,” “War of the Worlds,” “Ace Ventura,” “Days of Thunder,” “Bean,” “Dracula,” “Blues Brothers,” and “Staying Alive”).

Steve’s career has never let up. Recently he’s teamed with technology maven Aaron Kronis, CEO of Stamina Records, which is structured as a next generation label that combines music, branding, entertainment and fashion, all under one roof. Stamina lists Steve’s extensive discography on its official website, staminarecords.com.

Describing their relationship, Kronis exclaims: “We’re about integrity and creating timeless music that never follows trends… Our goal is to combine highly-skilled musicianship with emerging technology. Now with power producer Steve Thompson at the helm, the sky is the limit.”

Never satisfied and always breaking new ground creatively, Steve recently wrote what may be his biggest hit yet, “Game On,” which he predicts will become a brand unto itself and a modern-day power anthem for global gaming, sports, fashion, and iconic products/services, ushering in an new era of “EDM meets rock.”

Souls-2012_banner (1)

And of course, Steve knows of what he speaks, since he worked on “Welcome to the Jungle,” considered by many the #1 Sports anthem of all time.

EGA seeks to pair Thompson with major and breaking indie artists looking to produce uncompromising, game-changing music for the world, whether EDM, Trap, pop, rock, reggae, Americana, or Country.

“With Steve on board,” Eggman Global’s Eggleston says, “I’m hopeful EGA artists will benefit from Steve’s unparalleled music genius.  And of course we’ll be searching for major and indie artists worldwide who desire to make a timeless impact with their new music.”

EGA also looks to engage strategic partners for Thompson’s new song “Game On,” a brand-empowering anthem designed to capture & express the spirit of a new generation of global consumers. Focus will be on global gaming, sports,  fashion, and iconic products/services.

Finally Steve’s film project “Souls” blew our minds, and all this is just the tip of the iceberg. Steve is a fountain of creative projects and ideas, many of which we’ll seek to bring to fruition.

The FAB Signs to Eggman Global Artists

One of Vegas’ finest performing bands, The FAB, have signed to management with Eggman Global Artists.   “The FAB may be the best Beatles band in the world.  I know that says a lot, but they are that good,” says Eggman Global CEO Steve Eggleston, ironically also known as The Eggman.   Pat Woodward formed The Fab in 1995.  Now, 17 years later, they are one of the longest running cover bands in Vegas, featuring five of Southern Nevada’s finest musicians.  With hundreds of Beatles songs in their repertoire, The FAB play every Beatles song ever recorded, play every Beatles album to perfection, and are known for NOT donning silly wigs or trying to look like a band that launched its meteoric rise to fame 50 years ago this year.  Rarely playing the same show twice, The FAB have performed spectacular special live productions of many of the Beatles albums “in their entirety” to sold-out crowds in Vegas and across the United States.  And for several years running, they’ve been voted Las Vegas’ “#1 Lounge Act” by the Las Vegas Review-Journal Reader’s Poll, registering a fan club in the thousands from all around the world.

Always looking for the right venue fit and residency, The FAB have played for many top Vegas venues, including but not limited to:

Michael Grimm to play Jimmie Rodgers Festival in homage to Chris Ethridge and Jimmi Rodgers

Growing up poor in Mississippi, Michael listened to music. It’s one of the things we take for granted. Music, that is, is free on the radio, always has been. Also, his grandmother played the vinyl. One of his favorites was “The Flying Burrito Brothers,” for their fusion of rhythm & blues with country & rock — an approach not entirely unlike his own. A magical force, FBB Bassist Chris Ethridge died 4/25/12, but his contribution to music and life will not be forgotten. See Michael at this year’s festival in Meridian, Miss, Chris’ home town, as Michael plays in homage to Chris and Jimmie Rodgers, father of country music in whose memory the festival is held, GRTSs. Fest is May 19, 2012, at Dumont Plaza, Meridian, Miss. Stage time: 5:45 pm. For details and tickets, see meridianms.org/events.html.  For more on Jimmie Rodgers, see: jimmierodgers.com.
