The female-run Guilty Pleasures Cabaret, brings sultry charm, feminine energy, refreshing talent, and artistry to the cabaret theater experience. Inspired by music, dance, and costumes that fulfill their guilty performing pleasures, the show was born – thus earning their namesake. With a speak-easy feel, a hint of The Roaring Twenties, and a sprinkle of The Swinging Sixties – the show remains modern and sexy. The ladies, clad in fishnets and black lace, tap dance, contort, sing, and pirouette to the sounds of Chicago, The Great Gatsby, Sam Smith, Beyonce, Nancy Sinatra, and Rosemary Clooney – to name a few, playfully mixing the old with the new.

“Decades was fabulous! They are fun, professional and have great talent. Can’t wait to have them back again. We highly recommend this group!” –— Francis Ford Coppola Winery
Since 2010, Decades (based in Chico, CA) has been working (and rocking) around the clock to learn material spanning from the 1940’s (Glenn Miller’s Orchestra’s “In The Mood”) to today (Bruno Mars & Mark Ronson’s “Uptown Funk”). The band has played over 600 shows all along the West Coast, and are well on their way to booking another 125+ shows for 2017, earning its place as one of California’s most in-demand bands. Throughout a single show, they’ll swap between several instruments (including saxophone, harmonica, penny whistle, ocarina to name a few) and belt out four part harmonies, showcasing each members’ musical versatility, while continuing to put on a highly energetic live show.
Decades’ impressive catalog, mixed with its young talents (ages 27-30), has led to numerous achievements and highlights. Some notable performances include playing the Great American Music Hall in San Francisco in 2016, the Francis Ford Coppola Winery, Santa Cruz beach shows, the Hawaiian islands for 3 consecutive years, a 4th of July rooftop show at Harrah’s Casino in Lake Tahoe and opening for both “Rain: A Tribute to the Beatles” and “The Drifters”. Decades’ debut album, Take Me Back, and their sophomore album, Way Up High, were recorded by Grammy-nominated producer, Sylvia Massy (Red Hot Chili Peppers, Prince, Johnny Cash, Tool) and have independently sold over 2,000 units. After playing for the Oakland Raiders on four separate occasions, Raider Hall-of-Famer Fred Biletnikoff said of the group, “Decades is a Hall-of-Fame Band”.
“Decades is one of the most entertaining bands I have seen in a long time. 5 dedicated musicians taking a lot of pride in learning all the right songs, and they do a great job with all of them.

“The cast was outstanding. The group’s energy dazzles.” — The Boston Telegram
The StepCrew is the new dance production featuring the world’s top talents in Irish Stepdancing, Ottawa Valley Stepdancing, and Modern Tap. These five dynamic performers both excel in their respective traditional forms of dance and create brand new, modern fusions of all three styles. Backed by a five-piece band including Celtic vocals and joined by the fiddle playing of three champion musicians, The StepCrew simply “drips” energy.
Performers in the show include dancers and fiddlers from the likes of The Chieftains, Bowfire, Cherish The Ladies, and Seven Nations.
“The StepCrew is a brilliant visual and musical display of the most talented dancers I’ve seen. It’s refreshing to see a performance of this style based on pure ability as the dancers are certainly nothing less than virtuosic in their respective styles. The first time I saw Jon and Nathan Pilatzke dancing with Cara Butler was the best thing I’d seen since sliced bread. Having worked with them for the last eight years has been a true tonic for The Chieftains. The StepCrew does not simply draw their audience in, they take them by the hand and remind us what dance is meant to be about – fun.”–– Paddy Moloney, The Chieftains
“The StepCrew is a show that very simply, cannot be missed. The focus, energy, and sheer virtuosity on display from the entire cast is nothing short of mind-boggling. I have yet to encounter a dance show of such unique proportions, seamlessly blending the best of three different percussive styles into what can only be called a tour de force. The StepCrew is truly one of the most exciting things I have seen in a long time.” — Jean Butler of Riverdance, Dancing On Dangerous Ground

Since the passing of the King more than 37 years ago, there has never been a tribute artist that has so captured the look, moves, and especially the sound of the King more than Justin Shandor. According to the Jordinares, (Elvis’s original background singers, which Justin has performed with on several occasions), Justin has the raw talent that shot Elvis to the top. His likeness to the King is so close that at one time Graceland emailed a casino where Justin was performing and told them they could not use a real picture of Elvis to advertise their event. It was a picture of Justin!
Justin is an international sensation having performed in England, Australia, Malaysia, the Fiji islands, and several tours to Canada and Sweden. At the end of August, 2013 Justin performed three consecutive shows for over 15,000 people in Santiago, Chile and headlined in Collingwood, Canada, performing for over 20,000 people.
former lead singer of BAD COMPANY
In 1984 Bad Company courted Brian Howe to take the helm as lead vocalist after Paul Rodgers’ departure. Brian would create, write, record and tour with Bad Company for the next ten years.
Millions of records later, Brian is back and ready to unleash his awesome vocals upon audiences and fans, performing all of Bad Company’s hit songs including such classics as “Can’t Get Enough,” “Bad Company,” “Holy Water,” “Ready For Love,” and many other Bad Co. hits.
As one of rock’s legendary voices, Brian Howe exploded onto the scene when he partnered up as lead vocalist with multi-platinum artist Ted Nugent for the 1983 album, Penetrator. As the front man of Nugent’s live show, the album’s tour took Howe around the globe – his first opportunity to share his killer rock vocals internationally, and it wouldn’t be long before the world would take notice of Howe’s ascension to super-stardom with his next venture.
Subsequently, Brian created, wrote, recorded and toured with Bad Company for the next ten years, headlining every major venue around the globe. In 1991 Brian Howe was reunited once again with Ted Nugent when Damn Yankees were brought on to support Brian and Bad Company in what was credited as one of the top 5 grossing tours of that year.
In addition to Bad Company’s highly acclaimed, (and long–awaited) 1993 live CD What You Hear Is What You Get – The Best of Bad Company – Live, Brian wrote and sold 19 million additional albums highlighted by such radio and MTV music video hits as Holy Water, If You Needed Somebody, No Smoke Without A Fire and How About That.
Today, Brian and the band continue to perform around the globe and recently released his latest album CD entitled “Circus Bar” to rave reviews. In addition, Rhino Records are currently working on a date for the up-coming Bad Company double album release with Brian on vocals.
This is a rare opportunity to present one of rock’s legendary voices plus all the Bad Company classics from the 70’s in one hit-packed show. Contact us today.
