Our exciting production of “the nearly true story of the MAMAS AND PAPAS”. This remarkable story features one of the most influential groups in Rock n’ Roll history.  In four short years, they managed to out sell the Beatles, rise to the top of their industry, have seven major number one hits on the charts, and tear themselves apart while they were doing it.  Their unique blend, look, style and charisma truly became an icon for the late 60’s early 70’s.

KANSAS' first public statement appeared on their self-titled album in 1974, "From the beginning, we considered ourselves and our music different and we hope we will always remain so." Little did this legendary rock group realize that back in the early 70's, what "seemed to be different," was actually ahead of its time. Read More

Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio appointed rock legend Ted Nugent deputy and was sworn in last summer in Arpaio’s downtown Phoenix office. Nugent is known for his conservative political views and defense of hunting and gun ownership rights. He has served on the board of directors of the National Rifle Association and is a spokesman for the Drug Abuse Resistance Education, National Field Archery Association, Mothers Against Drunk Driving and Big Brothers Big Sisters of America.
At 62, the veteran rocker’s no holds barred career spans five decades of multi-platinum hits and more than 30 million albums sold. Both as a solo artist and with the Amboy Dukes and Damn Yankees, Nugent has amassed a sizable list of well-known hits, including "Journey To The Center Of The Mind," "Stranglehold," "Free For All," "Dog Eat Dog," "Wango Tango," "Cat Scratch Fever," "Motor City Madhouse," cult classic “Fred Bear,” "High Enough” and “Love Grenade.”
Hailing from Detroit, Nugent’s guitar talents and over-the-top onstage antics quickly earned young Ted the moniker of "Motor City Madman." Get your Nuge on! His fire-breathing intensity and the sound he wrings from his almighty Gibson Byrdland have placed him among the all-time greats of rock & roll.
In addition to music, Nugent is a New York Times best-selling author of Ted, White and Blue: The Nugent Manifesto and his autobiography titled God, Guns, & Rock n' Roll. He heads up his own hunting camp, owns his own hunting supply store and sells his own beef jerky.

Mr. Lucky -- Chris Isaak’s stunning new masterpiece -- perfectly balances the ecstasy of great romance with the agony of pure heartbreak. Mr. Lucky offers passionate music that feels decidedly lived-in. Like some rocking Sinatra album for the 21st Century, Mr. Lucky is a song cycle about the good luck we earn and the bad luck we just can’t seem to shake. Right from its killer opener -- the wonderfully tortured “Cheaters Town” -- to the concluding and uplifting “Big, Wide Wonderful World,” Isaak takes us all on a dark but beautiful ride -- one you will likely recognize as your own.

    Move America Forward, the nation’s largest grassroots-pro-troop organization, reacted to the news of multiple terrorist bombings in Moscow subways early Monday. The group expressed disgust at the act, offered condolences to the victim’s families, as well as a stern warning for nations bowing out of the war on terror.

    “We are saddened by this terrible news of further terrorist attacks by Islamic extremist separatist groups in Russia. We offer our prayers and thoughts for the victims and their families as they suffered a painful loss. Today’s terrorist attacks are no different from the actions of insurgents bombing police stations in Iraq, the bombing of buses in London, trains in Madrid, or the World Trade Center on 9/11, “ said Danny Gonzalez, Director of Communications for Move America Forward. “Terrorist acts like these, perpetrated by radical Islamic terror groups, serve as a harsh reminder not only to the government of Russia but also to all nations that we are fighting a global war on terror. Instead of pulling troops out of Afghanistan, as we have seen some European nations talk about, countries ought to think hard about offering more cooperation with the United States.  It is not only critical for U.S. security but worldwide security and stability that our coalition succeeds in Afghanistan. ” concluded Gonzalez.

    Over 38 innocent Russian citizens lost their lives today when two Chechen rebels, thought to be females, executed suicide bombings in two subway stations early Sunday in Moscow.

    Doctor Offers New Jersey Woman $50,000 to End Her Quest to Reach 1,000 Pounds
    Dr. Sanford Siegal attempts to stop the suicide of 600 pound Donna Simpson

    Dr. Sanford Siegal, a practicing physician in South Florida best known as the creator of the popular Dr. Siegal's COOKIE DIET® weight-loss system and foods, confirmed  that he has offered Donna Simpson of Old Bridge, New Jersey, $50,000 if she'll end her much-publicized quest to reach a weight of 1,000 pounds.

    This is not a joke. She is serious about becoming the world's fattest woman.  People are following her on Twitter and other social media sites. She has made national news

    Dr. Siegal warned her of the health consequences including premature death, one or both of her legs will be amputated, blindness that often accompanies diabetes, and pain that often happens after amputation called 'phantom pain'.Dr. Siegal explained that he and many others, including the current First Lady, are concerned that the publicity her endeavor has generated will undermine their efforts to encourage Americans to lead a healthier life. She is sending a very bad message to  children and impressionable teenagers.

    Dr. Siegal's offer to Simpson provides for specific payments to be made as she achieves certain milestones. If she accepts, the first $10,000 will be paid upon her (1) ending her weight-gain diet and agreeing not to resume it in the future, (2) beginning a weight-loss diet of her choosing under a doctor's supervision, and (3) agreeing to speak to the media about her unequivocal decision to end her self-destructive behavior and pursue a healthful weight.

    A practicing physician, author, and weight-loss pioneer, Dr. Sanford Siegal  has treated more than 500,000 overweight patients. He is best known as the Cookie Doctor® behind the internationally popular Dr. Siegal's COOKIE DIET® ( weight-loss approach and foods.

        Dr. Siegal is perpetually in the news. Recent coverage includes:

"Foundation grants cannot solve the problem but hopefully will help ease some of the pain Arizonans and the organizations serving them are facing today."

    ECOTREK 2011 BEST OF AMERICA TOUR FUELED BY CELLULOSIC ETHANOL WILL TEST THIS AMERICAN MADE FUEL IN A 10,000 MILE TWO MONTH TOUR  “The Best of America Tour” begins January 11, 2011 (1.11.11) at 11am on the Santa Monica, California pier

    Santa Monica, CA (Historic Route 66) -- General Motors calls EcoTrek founder, Tom Holm, “a champion of the automotive industry who is awakening mankind to alternatives in living and new methods to preserve our natural resources.”  Mitsubishi Motors adds, “(Holm is) setting the highest standards of innovation and achievement.” While German auto news dubs Holm simply, “das Eco-Pimper.”  Fuel made from farm waste diverted from land-fills is heading to gas stations throughout America.  But first, Tom Holm, Executive Director of the non-profit EcoTrek Foundation, tests the viability of this revolutionary biofuel during his 10,000-mile “Best of America” Tour.  January 11th, 2011 at 11 a.m. Holm will begin another cross country journey to reclaim America’s independence, while helping ecological projects along the way. Holm’s “First-Ever” use of Cellulosic Ethanol (“CE”) introduces the world to a fuel made from corn husks, cobs, stalks and other farm waste that can be used in millions of vehicles today without any conversions required.  Soon, billions of tons of additional organic materials will be diverted from, or harvested at “trash dumps” to fuel American vehicles.  EcoTrek is a non-profit that provides educational programs promoting the use of renewable fuels and materials in the transportation industries.  For additional information, please contact B/PR, 602.404.8018 or visit the website,

     “We’re taking a regular American-made pickup truck, outfitting it with American-made accessories and powering it with American-made biofuels in order to emphasize our ability to be gentler to the environment, while bolstering American’s economy, national security and independence from foreign oil,” Holm stated.  “Of course, we’re also doing this to highlight the magnificence of America’s natural and cultural beauty.  These are things our forefathers fought and died for, and our servicemen continue to make the ultimate sacrifice to protect.   My hope is that the use of clean biofuels made here at home will begin to minimize our sacrifices and lead to a more prosperous America admired for the innovations for which Americans are noted.”

     Media, students and others can follow Holm’s trek through his on-line Blog.  Holm is not just stopping in 21 cities on the Tour, he and EcoTrek are giving back to the communities along the way.  In South Dakota and Iowa, the Tour will visit farms and refineries creating cellulosic ethanol as well as Mount Rushmore and the Badlands.  February 15th to 16th, Holm will meet with Automakers in Detroit.  March 2nd to 4th the Tour will visit the Tensaw Delta and New Orleans to assist in Gulf Coast research and clean up efforts.  The Tour concludes March 11th on the pier at Santa Monica.  A complete listing of the Best of America Tour follows this news release.
