Otis Day

DeWayne Jessie was part of Universal Studios' stable of character actors when he was offered the role of Otis Day, the roadhouse rhythm -and - blues singer in "Animal House" - National Lampoon's occasionally raunchy but - unfailingly- funny tribute to college fraternity life. Now he's Otis - for life. "He's taken over,"Jessie admitted. "He's taken over as far as performing goes. But when I get my bills, it's

DeWayne Jessie." "About two days after the film was released, I got a call from a guy in Rhode Island wanting us to come out on the road," Jessie said.

"I didn't go, but then Los Angeles based producers Ron Kurtz and Don Podolor called and said 'Let's give it a try'"! The rest is Rock n' Roll history. Otis toured to sold out crowds immediately. In fact, in Galveston, Texas he drew 375,000 to his Mardi Gras concert. "It was done in reverse," states Ron Kurtz. "First we toured successfully (over 260 concerts the first year alone), then we did a feature full length

video. Then we recorded the album on MCA Records produced by George Clinton."

Otis Day's Clasic Hits Include:

"Shamalamma Ding Dong"


"Louie Louie"

“Hold On I’m Comin’”

As America’s baby boomers moved into their mid teens, Gary began his professional career. For his first hit, "New Orleans," attention was brought to the record by having promotional copies sent to radio stations in sleeves inscribed "Buy U.S. Bonds" - hence at age 19, Gary Anderson became Gary U.S. Bonds. The follow-up was the now legendary 'party' record, “Quarter to Three,” a number one hit with a spirit and energy that would eventually inspire and influence a generation.

Over the next three years, Bonds co-wrote and recorded hit after good-time hit: ”School is Out," "School is In," "Dear Lady Twist,""Twist, Twist Senora," "Seven Day Weekend" and others. He performed throughout the world, rising to a status so high that on a 1963 tour of Europe, he headlined above a group of relative newcomers… The Beatles.

Gary U.S. Bonds Classic Hits Include:

"This Little Girl"


"Quarter To There"

"New Orleans"

everything creatively that a remake should be), a cover of

Dave Mason’s early musical career as a member of the band Traffic operated on the cutting edge of the late-sixties music scene at a time of rapid and remarkable evolution, and expanded rock's sonic palette with songs such as Mr. Fantasy, and Traffic, among the more remarkable albums of the sixites.

His whimsical melodies and good-time feel, incorporating simple yet rich lyrics,

ensured a delightful contrast. His vocals adding a mellower texture to Winwood's, and an extra interest..

Mason joined Delaney & Bonnie & Friends in 1969. He played lead guitar and toured with them opening for Blind Faith. Delaney & Bonnie had a #2 hit with Mason's song "Only You Know and I Know".

Mason continues to follow his heart's calling. He continues to hold considerable weight in the industry as one who carries a powerful legacy and indelible mark on Rock and Roll. Not many music legends in their 60's create and perform with the same energy and vitality that defined their early days. Dave Mason is a rare exception.

Dave Mason Classic Hits include:

“Dear Mr. Fantasy”

“Only You Know And I Know”

“We Just Disagree”

“Feelin’ Alright”

Peter Rivera is the original drummer and lead vocalist behind all of the hits. Wherever these classics are played people inevitably say something like: "I'd know that voice anywhere" . . .Peter's story is one of those all-American classics; a kind of "rags to riches" tale in which an obscure white boy, growing up in a red- brick row house of Detroit, Michigan, finds his way out of the grimy blue-collar neighborhood that spawned a whole generation of factory workers, dock hands, and "tough-guy" bar brawlers to the big time glitz and glam of the pop music industry.

With Peter on drums and lead vocals, Rare Earth sold over twenty-five million records.

Peter recorded over seventeen albums which includes a long list of top ten hits.

Peter Rivera’s Classic Hits include:

 "Get Ready"

"I'm Losing You"

 "Born to Wander"

 "Hey Big Brother"

 "I Just Want to Celebrate"

High octane, turbo, high performance, super charged MITCH RYDER & The Detroit Wheels didn't need to hail from the Motor City for those adjectives to be tossed their way, but it was certainly appropriate that they called Motown home. It was Mitch and The Wheels who served as the musical bridge between the Motown soul factory and the high energy, take no prisoners rock 'n' roll that would roar out of Detroit via

Iggy & The Stooges, MC5, Ted Nugent and Bob Seger. With Ryder, it wasn't attitude or public outrage or politics that generated the charge you could simply hear it in the music.

Mitch Ryder's Classic Hits include:

“Jenny Take A Ride” / "Baby Jane"

"Devil With A Blue Dress On" / "Good Golly Miss Molly"

"Little Latin Lupe Lu"

"Rock & Roll"

"Tale Me To The River"

Founding and current member of “Rock & Roll Hall of Famer” Bob Seger & his Silver Bullet Band, Alto was recently inducted into the Blues Hall of Fame at a special ceremony and SRO Performance “Grammy” winner Reed’s early saxophone and music influences include Motown’s Jr. Walker and sax-man King Curtis which helped shape Reed’s “R&B” and “Rock” sensibilities as a perfect complement to Seger's “Rhythm & Blues/Rock & Roll style”.

​​Thus, in the early 70’s, Reed began, what is now, a long career with Bob Seger, creating signature sax lines on numerous Seger Classics like

“Turn The Page”, “Old Time Rock and Roll”, “Main Street” and “The Horizontal Bop” which established his saxophone as a significant lead instrument in “Rock & Roll”.

Alto Reed is celebrated equally for his legendary electrifying concert performances in front of millions of concert goers as well being an intrinsic musical ingredient on more than a dozen Multi-Platinum Albums with sales of close to 100,000,000.

Reed’s diverse repertoire with his 10 piece Motor City AllStars gives a whole new meaning to “Rockin’ Blues”, whether seemingly levitating a huge bass saxophone slung around his neck or delivering sexy/down & dirty heartfelt blues licks and vocals.

Reed has also guest starred with a long list of “Music Icons” ranging from The Blues Brothers, Foghat, Grand Funk, Otis Rush, Otis Day, Maria Conchita Alonso, Jeff Daniels, Blue Oyster Cult, George Thorogood, The Steve Thorpe Blues Orchestra, Kid Rock, Little Feat and many more including performing with The Ventures for their 2008 Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Induction on “Hawaii 50”.
