Steve Connolly has become one of the most accomplished Elvis entertainers ever to perform in Las Vegas. Connolly's unique show recreates the complete experience of Elvis Presley's performances of the early 50’s through to the mid 70’s, so that audiences can experience not just the music of Elvis Presley but grasp the real "spirit of the king". To date, Connolly still remains the only entertainer depicting Presley to be chosen by the Las Vegas Review Journal Staff as the Best Elvis in Las Vegas and has also been recognized by former President Clinton, Donald Trump, Kenny Logins, Dennis Miller, and Steven Tyler of Aerosmith for his outstanding live performances.

When blues legend James Montgomery plays the harmonica, he "brings it on home." Whether it's recording with Kid Rock, sitting in with Gregg Allman, or fronting his band of thirty years, Montgomery plays with authority. While growing up in Detroit he learned first-hand from the masters—James Cotton, John Lee Hooker, and Jr. Wells—at the legendary Chessmate. Over the years, he's carried on in the tradition and continues to be a vital presence in blues as one of the most dynamic performers on the scene.
