About Naked Eyes
Formed in 1979 in Bath, U.K. as Neon (19) and then renamed their act to release two albums in 1983 - 1984 produced by Tony Mansfield (with whom Rob Fisher had recorded a single in 1982 as Planet Ha Ha). They were one of the first groups of the second british invasion in the U.S. charts, with their rendition of Bacharach And David classic "Always Something There To Remind Me" (No.8 in U.S. pop chart in 1983 and No.59 in The U.K. pop chart) and then with "Promises Promises" (No.11 in 1983) the 12'' extended John "Jellybean" Benitez mix of which features Madonna's vocals. Following their success in the U.S. Arthur Baker produced the first single of their second album "(What) In The Name Of Love" (No. 39 in the U.S. pop chart in 1984). After Rob Fisher's death on 25 August 1999, Peter Byrne released a solo alum in 2001 and he reactivated by himself the name Naked Eyes for a further 2007 cover album.

About Tone Loc:
Tone-Loc (born Anthony Smith) soared from obscurity into pop stardom in 1989 when his hoarse voice and unmistakable delivery made the song "Wild Thing" (using a sample from Van Halen's "Jamie's Cryin'") a massive hit. The song was co-written by Marvin Young, better known as Young MC, as was the second single smash, "Funky Cold Medina." The album Loc-ed After Dark became the second rap release ever to top the pop charts. Tone-Loc expanded his horizons into acting in 1992 and 1993, appearing a few times on the Fox sitcom Roc. He was also in the films Posse and Ace Ventura: Pet Detective, and in 1991 returned to recording with Cool Hand Loc. ~ Ron Wynn

About MJ The Legend
Jalles Franca moved to the United States from Brazil at the age of 16, to fulfill his dreams as a professional dancer in Las Vegas. At the age of 21, he began a 7 year residency as a performer, dancer and percussionist at Studio 54 Nightclub at the MGM Hotel and Casino.

A longtime fan of the "King of Pop" Michael Jackson, Jalles began imitating the star's signature dance moves during his routines at Studio 54 and various other venues. Soon after the passing of his idol, Jalles began dedicating his talents to pay tribute to the late Superstar; and winning numerous local competitions for "Best Michael Jackson impersonator", Best overall "Look" and "Best Moonwalk". Over the last 8 years, he has been featured in multiple tribute shows on the Las Vegas strip, developing his tribute as "MJ The Legend".
