The Jimmy Star Show is tv/radio’s coolest hit show, featuring the coolest in music, entertainment, fashion and pop culture, all from a fun industry insider perspective in a completely live, unedited fast-paced two-hour conversational format.

American High are a punk and 60’s influenced indie/alternative rock quartet from Sacramento, California. They play ‘catchy tunes with dark themes’. “Bones in the Attic, Flowers in the Basement”, is their debut full-length.

Their sound and lyrics have an optimistic perspective on the personal, the social and the political.

“This is an anti-war record.  Songs like SEPTEMBER and I CAN’T CHANGE are our attempts to put a human face on the costs of trying to force the world to do what we want them to do.  We think everyone should concentrate on minding our own business rather than point guns at each other and demand obedience.”

“We’re 4 guys who love rock and roll and love songs and songwriting.  We pay respect to brilliant artists that have gone before.  But in our own way.  Our songs are influenced by whatever bubbles up from the subconscious.  We give equal weight to all ideas/hooks/harmonies, regardless of which decade they harken to.”

“We think songs are more interesting when they can be seen in different ways.  We shun the tired INTRO-CHORUS-INTRO-CHORUS-LEAD-CHORUS-EXIT blueprint.  We prefer freeform songs.  We tried to make each song completely unique.  With a totally different sound for each.  Weird chords with weird changes, weird blueprints, weird harmonies and backwards leads.  Happy singers singing dark songs of love lost, the costs of constant war, and a scream into the night.  WAKE UP!”

G Tom Mac To Guest On The Jimmy Star Show With Ron Russell Wednesday August 16th, 2017 http://jimmystarshow.com/guests/g-tom-mac-to-guest-on-the-jimmy-star-show-with-ron-russell-wednesday-august-16th-2017/ Sun, 13 Aug 2017 22:24:06 +0000 http://jimmystarshow.com/?post_type=os_guests&p=2774 G Tom Mac will be a featured guest on The Jimmy Star Show live radio/tv show hosted by King of Cool Jimmy Star along with Cool Man About Town Ron Russell to discuss the “Lost Boys” thirty year anniversary, his musical career and the entertainment industries at large. The Jimmy Star Show is tv/radio’s coolest hit show, featuring the coolest in music, entertainment, fashion and pop culture, all from a fun industry insider perspective in a completely live, unedited fast-paced two-hour conversational format.

In writing, singing & creating the masterpiece “Cry Little Sister” singing as the theme song to the now classic film “THE LOST BOYS,” GERARD McMANN hit a deep & provocative nerve in his artistic career of creativity in doing so.

Only thing was, when the film released in 1987, he was fed up with the music scene’s “business” and stopped touring. He then changed his name to G TOM MAC as a result of no one ever pronouncing his real name correctly.

G Tom Mac went on to write songs for legendary singers such as Robert Plant of Led Zeppelin and Roger Daltrey of The Who. An array of contemporary Hip Hop artists, such as Ice Cube and Digable Planets, as well as KISS, Carly Simon and Eminem started to cover G Tom Mac’s songs. Last year, G Tom Mac earned a Grammy on EMINEM’S “RECOVERY” album in which Eminem sampled him in the song “You’re Never Over.”

Having had songs in over 50 films & more than 100 TV shows that still continue to license G Tom Mac’s music, it all adds up to in his words “staying fresh and being true to my fans in creating believable music that they feel from me. That’s my thrill!”

After 6 album releases, G Tom Mac opens yet another chapter with his NEW album “UNTAME the SONGS” that has already been received & talked about as one of the best albums of the year.

In commemoration of the release of the cult classic THE LOST BOYS, Grammy winner G Tom Mac, singer and songwriter of the film’s hit theme song “Cry Little Sister”, will be traveling internationally to appear and perform in many of the film’s 30th anniversary celebrations. Traveling alongside other stars of the film including Billy Wirth, Tim Cappello and Jamison Newland, for screenings of the film G Tom Mac is current set to perform internationally in the US and the UK.

Confirmed schedule can be found below:

September 30: Street Food Cinema, Malibu, California

October 4: Beyond Fest, Los Angles, California

October 7 – 10: Liverpool Horror Con, London, United Kingdom

*more dates to be announced

G Tom Mac has recently announced he is in the development stages of a musical version of the film titled “A Lost Boys Story.” The soundtrack from the musical will be available this September for the public to hear and get a sneak peak of what the musical will bring to life. When asked about the musical he stated:

“That’s something I’ve been working on for some years in development. I wanted to give a back story to the characters and tell where they came from, and how they became Vampires, & their rebellious nature and youthful uniqueness, yet keeping in line with the humor that worked so well with the horror in the film. I’ve written all new songs that bring out a good deal of depth in the plays story, songs like ‘Sleep All Day Party All Night,’ ‘Be One of Us,’ ‘Long Hot Summer’ (Michael & Stars theme), and the ever -fun ‘Death by Stereo’. The soundtrack will release late August to give the fans a good way to get the music in them in anticipation of the upcoming play.”

The Jimmy Star Show with Ron Russell is pleased to showcase the expertise and talent of G Tom Mac and all anticipate a fun and informative time talking with him about his career and the entertainment industries at large. Join King of Cool Jimmy Star, and Cool Man about Town Ron Russell as they have a playful and sometimes wild time with the talented featured guest!

Captain Of The Lost Waves To Guest On The Jimmy Star Show With Ron Russell Wednesday July 26th, 2017 http://jimmystarshow.com/guests/captain-of-the-lost-waves-to-guest-on-the-jimmy-star-show-with-ron-russell-wednesday-july-26th-2017/ Wed, 19 Jul 2017 18:09:39 +0000 http://jimmystarshow.com/?post_type=os_guests&p=2770 Captain Of The Lost Waves will be a featured guest on The Jimmy Star Show live radio/tv show hosted by King of Cool Jimmy Star along with Cool Man About Town Ron Russell to discuss his new album “Hidden Gems-Chapter1”, his career and the entertainment industries at large. The Jimmy Star Show is tv/radio’s coolest hit show, featuring the coolest in music, entertainment, fashion and pop culture, all from a fun industry insider perspective in a completely live, unedited fast-paced two-hour conversational format.

Captain Of The Lost Waves is an incredible UK band that has created a totally unique show and sound that will take you on an eclectic, theatrical, musical journey that you will never forget. Extremely original, Captain Of The Lost waves could be the genius lovechild of Vivian Stanshall and Edith Piaf. From the deliciously original artwork of Damian Clark to the music of Murray Grainger, Tony Taffinder and Dave Bowie Jr, their new album “Hidden Gems” is an entertaining circus, it’s enticingly macabre, it’s Gothic, it’s eerie, it’s playful, it’s music hall, hypnotically irresistible and indulgently artistic.

‘An uncompromising vision shall always divide opinion, for such is the unswerving conviction evident in the creation itself.’

If you have not heard of The Captain, that might just be the point!
These are the lost stories and the hidden gems, much like The Captain himself!
He revels in the underground, the magical unseen, the mystical otherworldly-ness of realms often overlooked & consigned to the shadows.

In doing so, he continues to retain a unique boutique connection to those who discover him…”Once a ‘First Mate”, always a “First Mate”. If you enjoy a little “Nu Vaudeville” and a “Renaissance of the Bard” then please come forth; if you like to be actively involved in a show and not merely be another bystander, then please come forth; if you like something which is uniquely different every time and is joyously anarchic and highly unpredictable, then please come forth. If you like defying the norms of social convention and enjoy laughter and fun-fuelled rebellion and reflection in equal measure, then please do come forth. A Captain Of The Lost Waves show has been described as a “Pixar – esque journey”, keeping all suitably stimulated in a variety of medium & moods.

A timeless troubadour, creating a concoction of music & interactive, intuitive performance… No gig is ever the same.

Where sweet black cabaret meets a healthy dollop of vaudeville. Replete with an equal measure of joy, pathos and profundity it has to be seen to be believed.

A “cabin crew” of accordion, double bass, mandolin, banjo & pitter patter percussion adding to the Captain’s voices, accompanied by his Bouzouki/Ukulele, were the nucleus of the noise evident on the debut album.

Making the record on location, as only a travelling man could, the execution of a sonic, panoramic imagining, could only be achieved by recruiting musical brigands, those not constricted by any particular genre or style, yet graceful, fluid and free enough to embellish the spacious scope of a fragile ditty, yet equally at home pounding out a thunderous storytelling exercise put to music.

Introducing Captain Of The Lost Waves:

Captain Of The Lost Waves – Voices, Bouzouki, Ukulele
Murray Grainger – Accordion, Accordina
Tony Taffinder – Mandolin, Banjo, Bodhran, Guitar, Voice
Dave Bowie Jnr – Double Bass/Bowed Bass

Toggo Ultrarock To Guest On The Jimmy Star Show With Ron Russell Wednesday July 19th, 2017 http://jimmystarshow.com/guests/toggo-ultrarock-to-guest-on-the-jimmy-star-show-with-ron-russell-wednesday-july-19th-2017/ Fri, 14 Jul 2017 14:22:39 +0000 http://jimmystarshow.com/?post_type=os_guests&p=2763 Toggo Ultrarock will be a featured guest on The Jimmy Star Show live radio/tv show hosted by King of Cool Jimmy Star along with Cool Man About Town Ron Russell to discuss his new EP “Ultrarock”, his music/career and the entertainment industries at large. The Jimmy Star Show is tv/radio’s coolest hit show, featuring the coolest in music, entertainment, fashion and pop culture, all from a fun industry insider perspective in a completely live, unedited fast-paced two-hour conversational format.

Born and raised in Norway, Toggo paid his musical dues in Los Angeles in a variety of rock bands, before turning the local Hollywood scene upside down with his band Scared Of Girls. Their outlandish P.R. Stunts and high energy concerts set a whole new standard for bands in Hollywood.

From the music press to their armada of fans, there seemed to be no doubt; Toggo’s band was going to be the next big thing. But fate had other plans. At the brink of a national breakthrough, Toggo went missing from the world under mysterious circumstances.

8 months later he reappeared, and the bizarre experience he had undergone while missing caused him to lose just about everything he held dear – his band, house, car, money, bank accounts, and a name he had made for himself in Hollywood from years of hard work.

The only thing left when the smoke cleared was a large case of incurable optimism. The book “Rock n Roll Virus, which chronicles Toggo’s surreal 8 month experience, is currently being penned.

As a result of his experience, Toggo resurfaced in Minnesota, where he traded in his Hollywood rocker status with single dad status in suburbia, USA. He spent the next 8 years raising his son.

Now more determined than ever, Toggo revamped his sound, created a company from the ground up to fund himself, and there himself head-first into creating new music. His unique, poppy style caught Norwegian production company Deepfrost’s attention, and they immediately signed Toggo to a production deal.

The result of that collaboration is the new video and single “Cannonball” as well as the upcoming EP “ULTRAROCK” that will be available worldwide on July 24th, 2017. The press has credited Toggo Ultrarock as the first in a brand new musical genre dubbed “EDM Rock.”

From his gotta-sing-along hooks and choruses to his hang-on-to-your-seat stage persona and colorful looks, Toggo Ultrarock delivers a refreshing punch to one’s musical senses that is rare to find today. An he is crystal clear about his goal: To leave the world irrecoverably inspired by his music and persona.

Sir Ivan To Guest On The Jimmy Star Show With Ron Russell Wednesday July 12th, 2017 http://jimmystarshow.com/guests/sir-ivan-to-guest-on-the-jimmy-star-show-with-ron-russell-wednesday-july-12th-2017/ Sat, 08 Jul 2017 15:41:11 +0000 http://jimmystarshow.com/?post_type=os_guests&p=2758 Sir Ivan will be a featured guest on The Jimmy Star Show live radio/tv show hosted by King of Cool Jimmy Star along with Cool Man About Town Ron Russell to discuss his new single “I Am Peaceman” featuring Debbie Gibson, his music, his career and the entertainment industries at large. The Jimmy Star Show is tv/radio’s coolest hit show, featuring the coolest in music, entertainment, fashion and pop culture, all from a fun industry insider perspective in a completely live, unedited fast-paced two-hour conversational format.

Banker–turned–singer, reality TV celebrity and social activist Ivan Wilzig has led a life that Hollywood movies are made of. After twenty years of working in his family’s multi-billion dollar commercial banking business and serving on the bank’s Board of Directors, Ivan left the banking world, reinvented himself as recording artist Sir Ivan, and against all odds became a Top Ten Billboard Magazine Recording Artist.

The journey began when Sir Ivan played a demo tape for Dave Jurman, Senior Executive Director of Dance Music at Colombia Records. Dave was so impressed with Ivan’s talent and enthusiasm that he immediately introduced him to Ernie Lake, half of the two–time Grammy nominated producer team known as Soul Solution. Sir Ivan chose as his first single the iconic John Lennon song “Imagine,” as the lyrics and message closely mirrored his own beliefs of creating a world without violence and hatred. The reason these lyrics resonated so strongly with Ivan is because his father was an Auschwitz concentration camp survivor and 59 Jewish family members had been murdered during the Holocaust. The single was signed by Tom Silverman, the owner of Tommy Boy Records, released on September 4, 2001, exactly one week before the horrendous September 11th tragedy, and broke the Top 40 on the Billboard Club Play Chart.

It was the first time in history that a recording artist had converted the slow rock ballad “Imagine” into a high energy dance record. In fact, it was the first time that a recording artist remade any Beatles or John Lennon ballad into a techno dance record. In combining techno tracks with hippy lyrics, Sir Ivan had developed a new style he called “Technippy.” Incredibly, thirty years after Lennon’s original release, Sir Ivan had made the song popular again for a new generation.

Inspired by the success of “Imagine”, he decided that all of his music would be about universal love, human rights and peace. The ’60s were both the most evolutionary and revolutionary period in history – when civil rights, women’s rights and gay rights were bravely fought for. The fight for these rights is still being waged today and Sir Ivan is leading the battle through his music and his non-profit organization, The Peaceman Foundation (http://sirivan.com/the-peaceman-foundation/) which was created in 2005 to fight hatred and violence.  Since then, Sir Ivan and The Peaceman Foundation have donated over $500,000 to various charities, including many LGBT charities, anti-bullying charities, and organizations that help those directly affected by violence, such as those who suffer from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). In addition, Sir Ivan has spent well over a million dollars on producing songs and music videos that champion LGBT rights.

After various degrees of success with other songs on the Billboard Charts, Sir Ivan finally got the recognition from the music industry he was seeking when, for the first time, he went Top Ten on Billboard’s Dance Club Songs Chart with his hit single “Hare Krishna” in 2011, sharing the chart with superstar performers Lady Gaga, Katy Perry, Jennifer Lopez and Rihanna. After this feat, the momentum never stopped. With his hit single “Live For Today,” Sir Ivan made not one, but two different Top Ten Music Week Magazine Charts in the UK in 2011 and 2012 along with fellow artists Scissor Sisters, Beyonce, Jennifer Lopez, Ed Sheeran, Tiesto, and Florence + the Machine. His first original song that he co-wrote the lyrics to, “La La Land,” also made the Top Ten in UK’s Music Week Chart in 2012, joining such artists as David Guetta, Elton John, and Kylie Minogue. Then he co-wrote lyrics to his anti-bullying anthem, “Kiss All The Bullies Goodbye”, created specifically to address the nation’s teen bullying epidemic and the high suicide rate occurring within the LGBT teenage community. Produced by Paul Oakenfold and featuring Taylor Dayne, the song landed in the Top Ten in UK’s Music Week Chart in 2015, alongside Rita Ora and Chris Brown. Sir Ivan’s dream of becoming a pop star had become a reality.

Slim Jim Phantom To Guest On The Jimmy Star Show With Ron Russell Wednesday July 5th, 2017 http://jimmystarshow.com/guests/slim-jim-phantom-to-guest-on-the-jimmy-star-show-with-ron-russell-wednesday-july-5th-2017/ Tue, 27 Jun 2017 14:12:45 +0000 http://jimmystarshow.com/?post_type=os_guests&p=2751 Slim Jim Phantom will be a featured guest on The Jimmy Star Show live radio/tv show hosted by King of Cool Jimmy Star along with Cool Man About Town Ron Russell to discuss his music, his career and the entertainment industries at large. The Jimmy Star Show is tv/radio’s coolest hit show, featuring the coolest in music, entertainment, fashion and pop culture, all from a fun industry insider perspective in a completely live, unedited fast-paced two-hour conversational format.

Slim Jim Phantom has secured his place as a true rock-n-roll icon. As the legendary drummer for the Stray Cats, Phantom, alongside band mates Brian Setzer and Lee Rocker, spearheaded the neo-rockabilly movement of the early 80s. With a love for 50s rock-n-roll the Stray Cats took inspiration from that bygone era and mixed with their youthful energy and aggression produced the updated hard-edged rockabilly sound that saw them conquer London, Europe and later the U.S., gaining fans among the likes of Keith Richards, Mick Jagger and Robert Plant along the way.

Born in the Brooklyn Borough of New York City, Jim grew up listening to his parents’ jazz records and by the age of ten took up the drums. Immersing himself in the art of drumming and the world of music, Jim took lessons with Mousie Alexander (who played with Benny Goodman), which included the study of jazz and working through books by Jim Chapin and Ted Reed.

By the late 70s Jim was playing in bands with school friend and bassist Lee Rocker and they soon joined forces with guitarist Brian Setzer. The rest, as they say, is history. The Stray Cats had numerous hit singles in the early 1980s, their classic album “Built for Speed” went double platinum, and their song “Rock This Town” is in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame’s list of “The Songs That Shaped Rock and Roll.”

In addition to the Stray Cats Jim has worked with some of the world’s top artists and has played a part in many successful groups – notably Phantom, Rocker and Slick (featuring long time David Bowie guitarist Earl Slick) which produced two popular albums; The Swing Cats featuring guitar ace Danny B. Harvey; and Dead Men Walking, an all-star affair which has boasted original members of The Sex Pistols, The Cult and Big Country among the rotating line-up. Jim also enjoyed a stint playing with The Killer, rock-n-roll originator Jerry Lee Lewis, and even performed in a now-mythological band called The Cheap Dates with acting legend Harry Dean Stanton, a long-time pal of his.

Jim has worked on numerous other projects including his own explosive self-named roots-rock trio, and HeadCat, co-starring Lemmy Kilmister and Danny B. Harvey. In addition, 2009 saw the launch of Slim Jim’s musical project The Forgotten Saints, a band co-founded with old friends, and former Dead Men Walking bandmates Captain Sensible and Mike Peters. A changing guest role for a fourth band member added an exciting dimension to an already prodigious line-up.

Over 30 years and millions of record sales later and Slim Jim Phantom continues to inspire and excite audiences worldwide. With a sound, style and image that remain as fresh today as they ever were, Phantom has cemented his place among rock royalty. Considered by many as the coolest drummer in rock-n-roll, Phantom’s influence is still clearly felt on today’s music scene with countless rockabilly drummers imitating his pioneering stand-up style.

Daniel has noticed big changes in the music industry since he began recording 6 years ago.

Fearing his music would lose it’s identity, Daniel resolved to remain true to his artistry. “The freedom to express myself honestly is what makes me relatable.”

After everything is said and done, Daniel says it is life’s hurdles that make us powerful. He also believes that he is a current representation of the new generation that allows an artist such as himself to exist. “Today’s youth are the first to realize that music doesn’t have to be black and white.” Life, heartache and passion are the three main ingredients that inspire Daniel’s songwriting.

His first single “Down” off of his upcoming EP is a sexually charged song about what happens when lust meets love. It is reminiscent of old school R&B yet, powered by a Pop undertone that is guaranteed to speak to a diverse audience.

The Jimmy Star Show with Ron Russell is tv/radio’s coolest hit show, featuring the coolest in music, entertainment, fashion and pop culture, all from a fun industry insider perspective in a completely live, unedited fast-paced two-hour conversational format.

Sam Bailey is now firmly established as one of the finest singers in the UK and continues to gain fans from all around the world with her totally ‘down to earth’ approach to everyone she meets. This, together with her considerable talent, makes her one of Britain’s favourite personalities.

Sam was born in Bexley, East London. Growing up, she enjoyed singing for her friends and family but never believed she was destined for stardom.

When she was younger, Sam entered talent competitions but always wanted to impress people by herself, rather than being talked up by family and friends. However, her family did have a major influence on her musical career – her grandfather was a singer in a group called “The Four Vinos” and her father was also in a band and she was often in the company of musicians.

One of her earliest success stories was winning a “Search For A Star” talent competition in Crayford Town Hall, Bexley as a 16-year-old. She went on to attend Bexley Arts College and Dartford’s Miskin Theatre to further develop her talent.

Though singing was a passion, Sam admits that her first love in life was football. She played professionally for a number of clubs including Millwall Lionesses, West Ham, Crystal Palace and London Women.

Before she stole the hearts of the nation by winning the tenth series of The X Factor at Christmas 2013, Sam worked as a prison officer at HM Prison Gartree as well as performing on cruise ships, in clubs and at music festivals for several years.

Despite her obvious nervousness during her first X Factor audition, she blew the judges away with her rendition of Beyoncé’s “Listen”, receiving a standing ovation and leading Gary Barlow to describe her voice as “incredible”.

Under the mentorship of Sharon Osborne she became a clear favourite on the show, dazzling audiences and judges alike with her stunning voice and natural stage presence. She received more than a million votes over the course of the final weekend and was crowned winner of the show.

Following her triumph, her debut single, “Skyscraper”, reached Christmas number one and her debut album, The Power of Love stormed to the top of the UK album charts in 2014.

Sam is truly one of the most talented performers in the music business and embarked on her first ever headline tour in 2015 which sold-out venues and received rave reviews. She had her West Debut in “Sam Bailey: Live in the West End”, performing her favourite songs from musicals to a sold out Lyric theatre. Other theatre roles include starring in panto in 2015 playing Fairy Bowbells in Dick Whittington and playing the major role of Mama Morton in the national UK tour of hit blockbuster “Chicago” in 2016.

Sam’s latest single Sing My Heart Out was released on 5th August 2016 and her album of the same name was released on 16th September. Sam collaborated with Ben Adams, of A1 fame and Steve Dorff, award winning American songwriter whose songs have been recorded by international superstars Kenny Rogers, Barbra Streisand, Celine Dion and Whitney Houston to name just a few.

Sam lives in Leicester with her husband Craig, and their three children – Tommy, Brooke, and Miley. Sam throws everything she has into her music and she is getting ready to embark on her “Sing My Heart Out” tour in March 2017.

The Jimmy Star Show is pleased to showcase the expertise and talent of Sam Bailey, and all anticipate a fun and informative time talking with her about her career and the entertainment industries at large.

The Jimmy Star Show with Ron Russell is tv/radio’s coolest hit show, featuring the coolest in music, entertainment, fashion and pop culture, all from a fun industry insider perspective in a completely live, unedited fast-paced two-hour conversational format.

Emerging from a lifelong fascination with the glamorous world of entertainment, especially the pop-culture phenomenon of the British Invasion of the 60’s, aspiring singer/model/artist/writer Cindy D’Adamo did not have to be led into social media; instead, it provided her with an outlet for her creativity in writing and art in the first incarnation of online social discussion forums and groups. It was here that she connected with one half of the pop duo Evan and Jaron, ‘Stage It’ guru Evan Lowenstein, who invited his group of web-chatting fans to hop aboard the new platform – MySpace, where the vision which became LadyLake began. Upon joining this very social, and predominantly musical interface, it became obvious that there were endless messages from independent artists with the same request, ‘Listen To Me!’. Listen she did, especially to a persistent young band from New Jersey, Reality Addiction, who were eager to play live shows, but lacked promotion, structure, and guidance. This band inspired Cindy to learn about the new indie music industry, by sitting at the feet of local managers, DJs, and music movers and shakers of all types.

She aligned herself with other promoters and managers of indie bands, including her first roster artists Diane Cameron and Lori Diamond founder of the 5th Chakra Artists Group. Cindy then got a huge break, approaching singer Juliet Gough of Denmark, (who unbeknownst to her), was being handled by the legendary producer Stuart Epps. Stuart, perhaps sensing her determination, enlisted Cindy and her partners in PR, Jen Andujar and Elena Tapia, to promote Juliet via social media, which then engaged the LadyLake engine, leading Juliet to #6 in global Folk, world-wide airplay, and an offer from a major talent house.

The social media impact was not overlooked by Stu, who sent these results to none other than Elton John, and the LadyLake story began. Fast-forward to 2016, with LadyLake at the top of their game, networking with a social media reach of +78million, developing the Envision network of indie arts companies and promoting a roster of 15 top quality independent musicians.

The Jimmy Star Show is pleased to showcase the expertise and talent of the ladies of Ladylake Entertainment, and all anticipate a fun and informative time talking with them about their career and the entertainment industries at large.
