Sergio Mendes    (0 Votes)
Producer, composer, keyboardist and vocalist, Sergio Mendes is one of the most internationally successful Brazilian artists of all time. His hit single, "Mas Que Nada," is the first Portuguese language song to ever hit Billboard's U.S. Pop chart and Mendes' signature mix of bossa nova and samba and distinctive pop instrumentation have ultimately come to define Brazilian music.

With a career spanning five decades, his enduring influence on the music industry continues to evolve. A three-time Grammy® Award winner, with three additional Grammy nominations, he has recorded more than 35 albums, with numerous gold and platinum albums among them. In 2012, following year, Mendes received an Oscar® nomination for Best Original Song for "Real in Rio" from the animated film Rio.

In the '80s, Mendes' popular single, "Never Gonna Let You Go" became a No. 1 Adult Contemporary hit and pop top-10 chart topper. In 1992 Mendes' record Brasileiro was awarded the Grammy® for Best World Music Album, and since then, Mendes has been honored with two Latin Grammy® awards for Best Brazilian Record, Timeless (2006) and Bom Tempo (2010) -- which was also nominated for a 2010 Grammy® award.

Mendes' most iconic album, Herb Alpert Presents Sergio Mendes & Brasil '66, was inducted into the Grammy® Hall of Fame in 2011, joining Bruce Springsteen's legendary Born in The U.S.A., Dr. Martin Luther King Jr's "I Have a Dream" speech, and the Rolling Stones' Exile on Main St. in the class of historically significant recordings.

Mendes continues to tour worldwide and maintains his work as a film composer and producer, while also always working on and developing his own album projects.

An Unpredictable Evening with Todd Rundgren

"A Wizard, A True Star," the title of Todd Rundgren's 1973 solo album, aptly sums up the contributions of this multi-faceted artist to state-of-the-art music. As a songwriter, video pioneer, producer, recording artist, computer software developer, conceptualist, and interactive artist (re-designated TR-i), Rundgren has made a lasting impact on both the form and content of popular music.

Todd Rundgren has performed a diverse range of styles as a solo artist and as a member of the band Utopia. Utopia was an entirely new approach to the concept of interactive musicianship and embarked on an extensive round of touring and recording. Some of Todd’s hits include “We Gotta Get You a Woman,” “Hello It’s Me,” “I Saw the Light” and the 1983 single hit “Bang the Drum All Day.”

Brittni Paiva    (0 Votes)
She has performed on stage with Carlos Santana when he appeared in Hawaii, also joined famed guitarist Tommy Emmanuel on stage at the California Worldfest, and become a 3-time Na Hoku Hanohano Award winner with numerous other nominations throughout the years, including Most Promising Artist of the Year in 2005 for her debut release, Brittni x 3.
Brittni received two nominations for her 5th CD with the legendary Grammy winner Tom Scott and won both Ukulele Album of the Year and Best Instrumental Composition of the Year from the Hawaii Academy of Recording Arts (Na Hoku Hanohano Awards).
“Brittni brings a whole new spirit to the music and to the instrument, pop sensibilities in a smooth jazz format,” says John Schroeter, music producer and author of Between the Strings: The Secret Lives of Guitars. “It’s got a new kind of energy, it’s infectious.
After experiencing a few rough years personally, Brittni is back and returning to her first love! Strengthened personally and with renewed focus on her God-given talent of music, she is returning stronger than ever to share her love of music and the ukulele.

Tower of Power    (1 vote)
For close to 50 years, Tower of Power has delivered the best in Rhythm and Blues music. Their first record, East Bay Grease, helped to define the East Bay sound, and did well enough to warrant a recording contract with Warner Brothers. Bump City, their 1972 debut for the label, was a hit on both the Billboard 200 and the chart’s RnB Albums chart and netted them the hits “You’re Still A Young Man” and “Down To The Nightclub.” The decade of the 1970s were a boom period for the group, who hit with radio classics like “So Very Hard To Go” and “What Is Hip?” and the band has continued to tour and record over the years with their latest project Hipper Than Hip being a live flash back to their 1974 tour.
In 2018, Tower of Power will be on the road, a lot, as usual. TOP consistently plays over 200 nights a year, touring the world.
When asked to describe the band's music, the group members give a variety of responses. Says Emilio, “What Tower plays is Oakland soul music.” Former Tower saxophonist Lenny Pickett, current musical director for the Saturday Night Live band, says “TOP is the world's best rhythm and blues band.” TOP’s horn-driven, in- your-face sound is all its own.
