Forever Motown: A fabulous cast of 4 male and 3 female vocalists, backed by a band of incredible musicians, represents Motown royalty on your stage. They are dressed to the nines, blinged out, and perform to perfection the most beloved songs from the greatest groups, artists and songwriters of all time: The Four Tops, The Temptations,The Supremes, Smokey Robinson, Mary Wells, Lionel Ritchie, Marvin Gaye, Tammi Terrell, Stevie Wonder, and so many more.
It is unlikely that the two powerhouse voices of the century would have ever shared the same stage…until now!
They never worked together, exactly, except when they taped a duet in separate recording sessions, but it’s tantalizing to think what it would have been like to have Barbra Streisand and Frank Sinatra teamed up for a concert tour. Imagine the possibilities. Would one have outshone the other? Would their on stage banter have been friendly or a bit snappy. Rapport of these two 20th century icons is immediately prevalent.
What’s On magazine states, “As good as the music is, the banter between the stars is equally memorable.”

Tribute to Johnny Cash: The Man In Black “Get Rhythm”
Theatre Review 2009, Downtown Cabaret:
“This show is not one of those jukebox musicals where the songs of an artist are woven around a contrived or flimsy tale. The Man in Black is a celebration of the songs of Johnny Cash, faithfully brought to life to try to provide “the up close and personal LIVE experience of his music.” Developed and performed by Scott Keeton, an actual distant cousin of the Cash clan, The Man in Black aptly does just that. It is a theatrical event filled with master musicianship and tuneful reminiscences, guaranteed to entertain theatergoers with country music, gospel, and rock and roll as performed by the one and only Johnny Cash.”
Ted was adopted out of Colorado and raised in the Seattle area. He has been performing since the age of ten. In 2006 he went to Laughlin, NV to compete in the Talent Quest ’06 competition involving 28 states, New Zealand, Australia, and Canada taking first place. He then went on to win KOMO TV 4′s N.W. Afternoon Celebrity Look Alike Contest.
In just a very short time Ted has developed into a national act. He performs all over the country at casinos, show rooms, night clubs, fraternal clubs, private parties, fairs and festivals. Last year Ted was at the John Denver Festival, The CMA Fan Fair Festival in Nashville, the Travelin’ Inc Country Cruise with Darryl Worley & Storme Warren (http://www.travelininc.com/CountryCruise2010.html) among many other venues.
The most heard comments after the show are, “I can’t believe how much he looks and sounds like John Denver, it really took us back!”
A Tribute to the Beatles: She Loves You
On February 9th, 1964, The Beatles, with their Edwardian suits and mop top haircuts, made their first American television appearance—LIVE—on The Ed Sullivan Show.
Ed Sullivan acts as the host of the show, guiding the audience through the various stages of life and musical success of the Beatles during the revolutionary 60′s era. Via classic video footage from the original “Ed Sullivan Variety Show,” the audience will be taken back in time and guided through the 1960′s “decade of love” set to a “live” musical performance of the world’s greatest band, “The Beatles.”
Performed by Tom Sadge. You’ll think you’re seeing the real thing! Having spent time with the star himself, Tom brings the true essence of Neil to life on stage!
