ARTISTS FOR MS PRESENT SUMMER BASH
70s rock and roll with a Laser Light show Your Host The Hilarious Casey Peruski
Portion of proceeds to benefit Multiple Sclerosis

Years ago in days of old, when magic filled the air …

Anyone lucky enough to see Led Zeppelin in concert in the ‘70s came away changed – visceral and tough, the music entered your body, through bone and muscle, and shook you to the very core. The unprecedented mix of power and passion – for the lyrics were sometimes delicately paired with the most combustible music and melodies – made for a rock ‘n’ roll experience unmatched, before or since. Guitarist Jimmy Page summed up his band thusly: “Power. Mystery. And the Hammer of the Gods.”

The hammer has been passed to The Pure Zeppelin Experience, a Florida-based tribute band that reproduces a full Zeppelin concert, the madness and the majesty, to thrilling, chest-pounding effect. These are veteran musicians who’ve sold their souls for a one-way trip on the Stairway to Heaven.

Michael “Spaz” McGoorty, whose dynamic stage presence and a blistering, multi-octave voice make him the heir apparent to Zeppelin frontman Robert Plant, is lead singer. “It’s that ‘blues and whiskey’ voice,” McGoorty says. “He puts everything he has into it – he really spills it. Like I always have, too.”

As John Paul Jones, Gary Bivona is PZE’s utility man, handling Jones’ complex basslines and all manner of keyboard instruments. Gary Renshaw channels John Bonham with his pulverizing, no-holds-barred “bonzo” drumming. As Jimmy Page Clint Ettorre is mesmerizing and captures the true light of Led Zeppelin

From “Dazed and Confused” and “Ramble On” to “Over the Hills and Far Away” and “Kashmir,” The Pure Zeppelin Experience is the musical, physical and spiritual manifestation of the great Led Zeppelin, for our times. Their explosive show, augmented by a full laser light production, goes for the deep, deep cuts as well as the more well-known Zeppelin numbers.

If it’s been a long lonely, lonely time since you rock and rolled, The Pure Zeppelin Experience is the answer. The songs remain the same, but come and see this band – they’re gonna make you sweat, gonna make you groove. Guaranteed.

DOORS ALIVE
DOORS ALIVE is dedicated to delivering the most accurate recreation of a live Doors performance that you have ever seen. From the dramatic to the eerie, the jazz influences to the straight up rock and roll, you are guaranteed to be astounded. The band takes control of every room, whether it be a niteclub, concert arena, private event or outdoor festival. DOORS ALIVE is a must see for fans of the original band as well as music lovers intrigued by the mystique that made Jim Morrison and The Doors one of the greatest rock bands in history..

Dirk Gilbert captures Jim Morrison with his powerful bluesy style and commanding stage presence. All eyes are on Dirk as he executes with intensity. You will be amazed Larry Kayne a dynamic and tasteful guitar player evokes the tone and feel of Robbie Krieger’s jazzy chord voicings and mesmerizing extended solos Tal Moore at the piano and organ delivers with the skill and virtuosity of Ray Manzarek Michael Sean White pounds out precise drum rhythms, blending rock and jazz like John Densmore in his prime Byron Buntin on bass, solidifies the foundation of Doors Alive.

…Is everybody in? The ceremony is about to begin…

The concept for this CD was that Jim stumbled across his first comedy notebooks from when he first started doing comedy back in the early 90’s.

After numerous plays on the Howard Stern Radio Show, his CD ranking on Amazon.com went from 282,363 to number 2. The only artist ahead of him was the Backstreet Boys. Later that week, FLORENTINE’s CD came in at #17 on the Internet Billboard charts. After the release of Terrorizing Telemarketers Volume 2 in late 2001, Jimmy Kimmel and Adam Carolla took a liking to FLORENTINE’s prank calls and hired him for a show to debut in June 2002 on Comedy Central called Crank Yankers. FLORENTINE played Special Ed, a mentally challenged teenager, and Bobby Fletcher, a despicable, alcoholic slob who is the older cousin of Ed.
After season 1, Eminem took a liking to FLORENTINE’s characters and flew him out to his Detroit studio to do prank calls together for the upcoming season of Crank Yankers. The following year in 2004, Eminem and FLORENTINE did a bit together on the MTV Music awards show where Eminem beat up Special Ed, who kept annoying him (and tore his leg off). Crank Yankers lasted 3 seasons on Comedy Central. The show moved over to MTV2 in 2006 for one season. FLORENTINE’s Special Ed character that he created is still played at various Sporting Events at stadiums across the USA.
FLORENTINE was featured on the series premiere of Down and Dirty with Jim Norton, a stand-up comedy series that aired on HBO on October 3, 2008.

He called it his “Mariano Rivera”. At the same time, FLORENTINE released three hidden camera DVDs called Meet The Creeps where he and his partner Don Jamieson pull outrageous pranks on people. The DVD has got in the hands of some Comedy Central executives and they brought Meet The Creeps to their broadband channel called Motherload. After the two successful seasons, Comedy Central did a Meet The Creeps pilot for the network. The pilot was deemed too mean spirited and the show never made it on the network. Between 2004 and 2008, FLORENTINE made 3 appearances on Jimmy Kimmel Live! on ABC. He also appeared on The Late Late Show with Craig Kilborn. In 2007, FLORENTINE appeared on the last episode of The Apprentice in season 4 doing his edgy stand-up comedy at a conservative charity event. He asked Trump’s partner George if he wears a diaper.
