Frank Elmo - Sax, Flute & Master of Ceremonies

he calls Frank to play with him.

This is just a sampling:
2 Platinum & 1 Gold album and 2 world tours
for a World tour with the group.

South Side Johnny

Grammy winning (double platinum) album "One Night of Sin"
Vic Damone &
Kevin Webb - Lead Vocalist
After returning from an international tour, with James "J.T." Taylor of "Kool and the Gang",
this young talent found us on the internet.
When he first sat in with us, it seemed almost too good to be true....
He was the missing ingredient we needed to turn a great band...
into the Best Band!
That's because Kevin has the incredible ability to transform himself
into the artist whose song he's singing.... and yet still manages to make every song his own.
It's almost as if Sly Stone, Stevie Wonder, Bob Marley, Luther and Sinatra
all reside inside this great entertainer!
One minute you think Marvin Gaye is singing with band but in an instant,
he can "morph" himself into Nat "King" Cole.
Send for our video and see (and hear) for yourself.
Kevin dances all night long and always rocks our band stand.
Let him rock your party, and no one will ever leave the dance floor!
