Element 115
Element 115 originally formed in 1995 as an all original act in the Phoenix area. Personnel changes occurred shortly after forming, and the new group quickly recognized that the audience was most responsive (and got up and danced) when the classic-rock tunes they loved were played. This newer line-up appreciated that response and began focusing on re-creating the tracks that were popular, but not over-played by the radio stations in the 70s and 80s when those songs were originally released.

Over the years, the position of drummer seemed to be the hardest to keep in place, and the search for an extraordinary beat keeper ensued. While listening to some signals from a SETI (Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence) program, the guitar player discovered an intelligent message coming from space. Tracking that signal to its source, Al, a being from a world 40 light-years from Earth, was found to be the originator of that message. Al had been listening to Earths radio signals for some time and heard some rock music from the 70s and 80s. He was immediately motivated to create a drum set and start playing along. He sent a message back to Earth hoping one of these bands would hear him and let him join. Naturally, Al got the position of drummer with the band, and the line-up of Element 115 was solidified. Using a tacheon-beam technology from his home world, Al plays with the Earthers of the band wherever they entertain.

Element 115 is ready with a complete stage, sound reinforcement, and lightshow for any event, large or small. From corporate celebrations to weddings, birthday bashes to high-school reunions, Element 115 has the song list (Boston, Styx, Kansas, Tubes, Steve Miller, Bad Company, Eagles, and dozens more) and ability to get attendees singing, dancing, and having a great time. In fact, the band GUARANTEES a memorable event when they play.

The band is working on its debut CD, "Space Bender" and the disc is expected to be released this year.

Contact Crazy Wolf Entertainment to book Stevie B
Stevie B
Hit songs 'Party Your Body', 'Dreamin' Of Love', 'Spring Love', 'I Wanna Be The One', 'Love Me For Life'.

A New era of dance music was born when Miami native Stevie B's first independently release single, "Party Your Body", hit South Florida's glittering club scene in 1987. After years spent paying his dues doing everything for mowing lawns to washing cars, Stevie B's skills as a writer, producer and performer thrust him into the pop spotlight. "Party Your Body" worked its way up across America, eventually selling over 200,000 copies, an amazing achievement for an independently released single. This success paved the way for Stevie B's debut album, "Party Your Body". The album gave birth to two more hit singles, "Dreamin' Of Love" and "Spring Love," which propelled the album to RIAA Platinum status.

in 1989, Stevie B's sophomore effort, "In My Eyes" showed him growing as an artist, as the songs took on a much more sophisticated flavour. In addition to his trademark dance songs, the album also featured smooth and soulful ballads and giddy pop tunes. The first single, "I Wanna Be The One" solidified Stevie's crossover into the pop market as the song rose into the Billboard Top 40. However, it was the power ballad, "Love Me For Life," that took Stevie B all the way into the Top Ten and made him the artist with the highest debuting song in the history of R&R magazine. Like its predecessor, "In My Eyes" went on to RIAA Platinum status, setting the stage for Stevie B to become a household name worldwide.

Though the record debuted in the Top 10, "Love And Emotion" was released in 1990 to little fanfare. In fact, it was largely ignored until radio stations began getting slews of calls for "that song about the postman". That song was, of course, "Because I Love You (The Postman Song)" and it too would be a highlight and pinnacle for Stevie B. As soon as the song was released as a single, it rocketed to #1 and remained lodged there for four weeks, ultimately becoming the biggest single of 1990. All around the world. "Because I Love You" was a Top Ten hit rising to #1 in Japan with "Love And Emotion" gathering RIAA Platinum status at home.

Over the course of five years, Stevie B accomplished more than most artists can say of their entire careers: three RIAA Platinum albums containing a total of thirteen Top 40 dance and/or pop singles and one classic #1 hit. From heart-stopping ballads to hip-shaking dance songs, Stevie B has done it all.

Taxi Doll
Yes, it’s true about who you know in Hollywood but sometimes it's merely fate working her mysterious magic. That’s exactly what happened when five worlds collided. A mutual producer friend spearheaded the initial introduction of ultra-hot European lead singer Dhana and LA local producer/keyboardist Gregg. Shortly after, followed the discovery of drummer Jason, guitarist Matt and bassist Brian.

Named after the bouncy dolls seen in the back of taxicabs, Taxi Doll was formed to bridge the gap between pop-rock and electronic music.

Inspired by a mix of Garbage, Chemical Brothers and Blondie, the band quickly popularized a sound that is often referred to as “Rocktronica”.

“We’ve been so lucky to have all come together so quickly. I know it can take a long time to form a band, but we all love the same bands, Depeche Mode, Goldfrapp, Blondie, No Doubt, Garbage, etc. We used to meet on Melrose to hang out and talk about music, I guess you could say Taxi Doll was formed there.”

Since the inception of Taxi Doll, they have placed numerous songs in TV and Film, with “Waiting” charting 3 on the Billboard Dance Charts and now “Be With You” which is currently moving up the charts.

Their songs can be heard in the following movies and TV shows: "John Tucker Must Die" "Firewall" "Shall We Dance" "Laguna Beach" "The Hills" "CSI: NYC" "Veronica Mars"

Contact Crazy Wolf Entertainment to book Matthew and Gunnar Nelson
Matthew and Gunnar Nelson
Their songs transcend time. Matthew and Gunnar Nelson, revered for unforgettable past hits, explore fresh creative territory in the present. Magically melodic songwriting and soaring sibling harmonies ensure that this pair will be a vital part of the music scene’s future.

“After the Rain” was the hit debut album by Nelson, the band Matthew and Gunnar led in the early 1990s. They zoomed to number one with "(I Can't Live Without Your) Love and Affection,” had three Top 10 singles, four #1 MTV videos, and became massively popular overseas.

Every magazine from Rolling Stone to People did cover stories, and the twins performed on television shows like "Late Night With David Letterman" and "Saturday Night Live." Critics tended to unfairly overlook Nelson, however, because of the brothers’ pin-up good looks… but that didn’t stop millions of fans from ‘getting’ what all the excitement was about.

With the rise of grunge rock in the mid-90s, pop music grew dark and foreboding. Matthew and Gunnar chose not to compromise their positive, drug-free posture to suit the trend. Those who continued to follow the brothers’ musical progress were rewarded with numerous gems on their seven subsequent albums on their own Stone Canyon Records label.

Matthew and Gunnar have rare insights into what it takes to earn longevity in the entertainment world. They continue the inspiring story of a most remarkable show business family. Their grandparents, Ozzie and Harriet Nelson, achieved immortality with "The Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet," the longest-running sitcom in television history. Earlier, the couple had enjoyed big band success and had scored a number one hit in 1934.

Rick Nelson emerged from the series’ popularity to establish himself as one of the most important rock artists of the ‘50s and ‘60s with 60 million career sales and three number ones of his own. So, with Matthew and Gunnar’s (I Can’t Live Without Your) Love and Affection, the Nelsons landed in the Guinness Book of World Records as the only family to reach number one record status in three successive generations.

The world maintains its fascination with the Nelsons. The A&E Channel’s Nelson Family “Biography” episode is still the top-rated ‘Biography’ installment ever.

Nelson has always been synonymous with entertainment in America. Matthew and Gunnar see all forms of media as vital links to their fans. While last year NELSON toured extensively with Peter Frampton and Styx, this year they’ve increased their television hosting work for VH1 and E. Gunnar is also the co-host of LIFETIME Radio’s nationally syndicated morning show.

Once again billed as NELSON, Matthew and Gunnar continue to perform sold-out shows around the globe. Contributing to their audience’s extraordinary devotion is the fact that Matthew and Gunnar tirelessly try to please. They take time to meet and greet each and every fan following all performances… for in their own words, “Our people are everything to us.”

Due to unending requests, they've worked some Rick Nelson classics into their set. They perform them with respect and enthusiasm. “We figured it's up to us to help keep his music alive,” Gunnar says. “Not only is it a true pleasure to play these great songs that people love, but it makes us feel profoundly closer to our best friend -our Pop."
