A popular comedian turned actor who started his career on-stage as a dare, funnyman Eddie Griffin has built an ever-growing fan base since jumping onto the comedy scene in 1990. Comedy Central honored him as the Top 100 Greatest Stand-ups of all time. Eddie has conquered not only the stage, but the silver screen as well. He has appeared in 47 films and numerous television shows. In addition to his Comedic talent, Griffin is also a gifted Actor, Dancer, Choreographer and Singer.

From the seventies through today, Cameo has been churning out trailblazing hits! The group’s pivotal sounds are a part of Music History! Cameo has permanently marked major turning points in music and set the standard that many have tried to duplicate and follow. Now, Cameo’s creator and producer; Larry Blackmon, along with founding member Tomi Jenkins are once again ready to challenge the way the world listens to music! Cameo is ready to introduce a new generation to their Music.

For over four decades, the Dramatics, with their rich, dazzling vocal blend has wowed audiences all over the world. With over 38 charted hits to date, the Dramatics have displayed a distinctive sound that has transcended time, music genres, and generations alike. Still driven by the vocals of lead singer L.J. Reynolds, the Dramatics continue to recreate the magic that began almost a half a century ago.

Tierra has been named “Best R&B Vocal Group” by four leading magazines including Billboard. The band’s quarter century commitment shows a dedication that can only be understood by listening to their smooth and soulful sounds. Tierra was the first Latino band to have four songs on the national chart and two simultaneously in the Top 100. They have performed in such prestigious shows such as Carnegie Hall, The American Music Awards, American Bandstand, and The Dorothy Chandler Pavilion.

With hits like “Dream Merchant,” “It’s Been A Long Time,” and “Wildflower," the ever soulful and sensual New Birth has continually maintained a strong presence in today’s musical market.  Today’s New Birth consists of the nucleus of the New Birth sound.  Brother’s Leslie and Melvin Wilson have reformed the group and are happily back to doing what they do best… making and performing the music we all love to hear.
