No longer waiting for cruise ships to sail local entertainers are eager to perform again.

FORT LAUDERDALE, FL, UNITED STATES, January 14, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Talent from the cruise line industry as well as many local performers have been largely out of work for almost a year now due to the pandemic. Fort Lauderdale producers Marguerite Scott and Jeff Taveggia have partnered with The Empire Stage on North Flagler street to open the “Scandalous Nights Variety Show”. The goal is to bring safe live entertainment back to the community and offer a place where these amazing artists can do their thing again.

“We are starting small and only offering 25 seats per show to stay covid compliant” says Marguerite who has an extensive resume of spearheading unique events across many of the major cruise lines, through her company Marguerite Scott Entertainment. “This brings many challenges especially financially”.

They have started a Go Fund Me campaign to help pay for sets, sound equipment, advertising, booking acts etc. in addition to painting and sprucing up the theater, all of which they are doing themselves.

“We have an amazing line up of talent if I do say so myself” says Jeff a comedy juggler with 30 years of experience who will also be performing in the show, some weekends as a featured artist and others as the host/mc.

There will be a revolving cast with three acts each night. Novelty acts, comedians, singers, burlesque and drag, the best of cruise ship and local talent. The show is rated 18 and over. Masks and temperature check are required for entry.

The Go Fund Me campaign can be found here – https://gofund.me/f87d2953

The show opens Jan. 29 and will run weekends through Feb. 28 (longer if it is a success).

Tickets for “Scandalous Nights Variety Show” are available at www.empirestage.com

Empire Stage is located at 1140 N Flagler Drive, Ft. Lauderdale, FL 33304

SUPERGROUP “BAD PENNY” DROP A CLASSIC METAL GEM, “THE MIRROR LIES”

Current and Ex Members of Journey, Queen, Blue Oyster Cult & Queensryche Go Hot & Heavy with an “Explosive” New Track

NEW YORK, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, January 14, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Bad Penny, an ambitious collaboration of all-star musicians assembled by guitarist Mike Holtzman to create genre-spanning new music during COVID, has released the follow up single to their surprise debut hit “Voices in My Head,” and true to form it’s a super-catchy scorcher. “The Mirror Lies” features Queensryche’s Todd LaTorre on lead vocals, cementing his metal-God bonafides with a blistering, multi-octave delivery. The track also features former Queen + Paul Rodgers bassist Danny Miranda, Blue Oyster Cult drummer Jules Radino, and ringleader Mike Holtzman on guitars.

“Hold on to your socks,” said Verlaine Hell, host of WAXX TRAXX to the MAXX at WUSB-FM (NY), “because this one rocks. A brain rattler.”

“Explosive…with a guitar solo worthy of the late Eddie Van Halen,” said Dave Levine of KZSU-FM (CA)

“GREAT riff…this one really gets you going,” adds Fingers, the longtime rock jock at WBAB-FM (NY)

“The Mirror Lies” was really written with Todd’s vocal range in mind,” said Holtzman. “He was terrific on our debut song “Voice in My Head,” but it was a bit like having a thoroughbred in the gate. We wanted to let him run.”

“The Mirror Lies” has traces of heavy metal heroes like Iron Maiden and Metallica, hammered into something shiny and new. “Our whole approach is to try to span genres we know and love. This track even has a lyrical nod to Bryan Adams, “ Holtzman laughs.

Bad Penny’s next single is a departure from the hard rock approach on their first two tracks. “Lose Myself, ” which drops January 22, is a ballad sung by former Journey lead singer Steve Augeri. “Voices in My Head” peaked at #39 on the MediaBase Activator Charts in December 2020.

“KidCreole” Back In The Ring!!!

Nobody cares, work harder!!

Passion Bleeds Success

Dedication

Hunting For World Title Shot!

BOSTON, MA, UNITED STATES, January 14, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — “Kid Creole” JP Augustin Ready To Get Back In Ring, Hunting For World Heavyweight Title Shot

Seeks fights with Fury, Joshua & Ruiz!!!

Former North American Heavyweight Champion Jean-Pierre “Kid Creole” Augustin is returning to professional boxing after nearly two years away from the sport. 

After suffering his solitary loss in 2019, the Boston-based, Haitian American boxer was on a break which became extended due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Coming off multiple training camps, Augustin is eager to get back in the ring and pursue a shot at the world title.     

Augustin also has a budding acting career, occasionally stepping out of the ring and onto the silver screen. He played Gilbert Dele in 2016’s Bleed for This and later appeared in the films Heart, Baby! and Vault.

Jean-Pierre “JP” was born in Au-Cayes, Haiti, and shortly after, moved to Boston with his parents. Idolizing boxing legends such as Muhammad Ali, Joe Louis and Jack Johnson, he took up the sport when he was 12 and had his first bout at 14, eventually becoming Regional Golden Gloves Champion and State PAL Champion. He went on to collect an amateur record of 56 – 12, earning a spot on the 2011 Pan American Team and representing Haiti in the 2012 Olympic Trials.

Augstin made his pro debut in February, 2014, defeating Michael Davis over four rounds. He became WBO and IBF North American Heavyweight champion, going undefeated over 18 bouts with one draw before taking his first loss in March, 2019. 
 
Augustin plans to continue his expansion into acting but is ready to come back to the boxing ring. He currently holds a record of 17 wins – 1 loss – 1 draw and is eyeing bouts with Fury, Joshua and Ruiz on his way to earning a World Title shot.

Communications Director for NIVA explains relief bill for independent venues and what's next

Understanding the #SaveOurStages act and COVID-19 relief bill for independent promoters, venues, producers or talent representative in new podcast interview!

…through 10 hard months of exhaustion and battle, we ended up doing what most people thought was unthinkable. We got a bill passed and turned into law, the Save Our Stages Act!”

— Audrey Schaefer, Director of Communications for NIVA

SAN DIEGO, CALIFORNIA, SAN DIEGO, January 14, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Thanks to the National Independent Venue Association (NIVA), 2021 has started off on a positive note for independent event promoters and entertainment venues with the passing of the Save Our Stages (SOS) Act. The SOS act was recently passed with the latest COVID-19 relief bill and assigns $15 billion for independent performing venues and other cultural programs defined in the bill's terms.

Audrey Schaefer, Director of Communications for NIVA, discussed the bill in further detail on the latest episode of the EventBuzz podcast by Purplepass (listen to the entire interview here). Schaefer is also the Communications Director for I.M.P, an independent concert promotion and production company that puts on shows for 500 to 50,000 fans at a time.

NIVA was created in direct response to the current pandemic, COVID-19, to preserve the live music industry, independent performance venues and promoters throughout the U.S. NIVA is made up of independent promoters who came together in April 2020 to lobby Congress for funding. These funds were to aid live music venues facing the possibility of permanently closing due to the effects of the pandemic. After 10 months of fighting, the act, Save Our Stages was passed!

The $15 billion relief package was passed to aid independent promoters and cultural institutions during COVID-19, along with the Coronavirus Response and Relief Act Supplemental Appropriations Act. The act was created and passed to "…provide emergency relief for independent venues and promoters across the country" says Schaefer. The SOS Act will support and give venues/promoters that short-term boost they need to get through the damaging effects of COVID and come out on top post-pandemic. If awarded a grant, funds can only be used towards the usual expenses; payroll, rent, utilities, staff, contractors, insurance, taxes, etc.

Who are eligible:

• Live performance venue operators and promoters
• Performing arts organizations
• Theatrical producers
• Talent representatives
• Motion picture theatre operators
• Non-profit museums

Schaefer states that in order to apply, you have to be independent, meaning not publicly traded, not international and you can't be in more than 10 states. Essentially, you may be eligible for a grant if you’re an eligible operator, promoter, producer or talent representative.

HIP Video Promo presents: War Panties perform on a country road in new music video "Delaware Cornfields" on Medium

War Panties

War Panties – Delaware Cornfields

They're completely natural in both settings: give these guys musical instruments and willing ears, and turn them loose, and they'll always know what to do.

LOUISVILLE, KY, USA, January 14, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Watch "Delaware Cornfields" by War Panties on Medium

They call themselves the best bar band in Louisville, Kentucky, and they've got the goods to back up that claim. Everything about War Panties is designed for in-person delivery: the immediacy of the sound, the audaciousness of the soloing, the catchiness of the choruses, the propulsiveness of the funk grooves, the humor, the impudence, the irreverence, the sheer velocity of the ideas in the band's songwriting. For the last nine months, doing shows has been a vexed proposition for independent bands. Since War Panties know you can't go out (for now), they're bringing the excitement to you.

And excitement is their specialty. For the better part of a decade, Kentucky has been the main beneficiary of their formidable talents. Louisville is no ordinary town: it's a relatively small city, but it punches well above its weight. Bardstown Road and Baxter Avenue in the Highlands neighborhood are two of America's most undersung party streets and a genuine cultural ferment zone. It's the freewheeling spirit of the Highlands that War Panties brings you on songs like "Delaware Cornfields," another song from In the Year of Zuul MMXX. "Delaware Cornfields" is a pure pastoral country singalong, laid-back, sun-drenched, and delightful.

Angelo Jackson has matched both songs with videos that underscore their strengths. The "Delaware Cornfields" video, an outdoor idyll, finds the members of War Panties on a country road, instruments in hand, singing to the sky. They're completely natural in both settings: give these guys musical instruments and willing ears, and turn them loose, and they'll always know what to do.

Adam

With his stunning grasp over R&B and Modern Soul Music, Adam John is all set to inspire and motivate listeners with relatable, strong

HOLLIDAYSBURG, PENNSYLVANIA, UNITED STATES, January 14, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Up-and-coming powerhouse, talented songwriter and producer of RnB music, Adam John is surely a force to be reckoned with. Having recently released his latest official album titled “Run From Love”, his burning and powerful messages are set to be felt and understood by everyone.

The album and musical compositions have been proudly published as an independent release without the involvement of the corporate music industry with an official music video directed by Mikey_2_Clipz along with the DS Creatives production team complementing the music. Chill, mellow, and bearing a smooth, contemporary suavity, “Run from Love” introduces Adam John as one of the most intriguing RnB artists of Q4 2020.

Adam John cites his main artistic influences to be Michael Jackson, The Weeknd, Travis Scott, and Chris Brown, who have all had a profound impact on his song production, musical composition and generally the messages he proudly relays through his unique R and B music. With an emphasis on subtle beats, flowing groove, and plenty of romantic tension, “Run from Love” by Adam John has a little something for everybody.

Asked to describe the overall theme of “Run from Love,” Adam John’s representation writes: “From soulful heartbreak records, to hard-hitting trap songs, this sonic masterpiece of work portrays it all. Over ’80s synth beats (Meant to Be) (Promises), and high-impact trap/club instrumentals (Gucci Fedora) (Wet Spot), Adam John depicts his story of love, and of life without it.”

###

About

Upcoming R and B and soul sensation, Adam John claims that the start in his musical career began with him writing songs in 8th grade.

“Teachers would be teaching lessons and I would be laser focused on a piece of composition paper writing notebooks full of lyrics down,” says Adam John. “I always loved to create and loved it even more when people connected.”

Even earlier, the artist became used to drawing an audience. “When I was nine, I used to stand at the local shopping mall and belt out Jackson 5 songs,” he writes. “People would crowd around me from the entire mall and fill up my hat with money. One time I made a stack doing it. My friends and I went upstairs afterwards, and I bought us all skateboards. I did not do it for the hustle then, it was the thrill. I have always loved to perform and was never concerned about what someone thought about me doing it. My grandfather instilled that in me. I knew I had a gift.” Adam John’s music will be one to watch out for as he is set to inspire and get people to enjoy his sensational tracks.
