Kenny Vance & The Planotones
Among today's great vocal pop musicians, Kenny Vance and The Planotones have voices of original and inviting dimension. The group, Kenny Vance, Johnny Gale, Kurt "Frenchy" Yahjian, Jimmy Bense, keyboardist Chip Degaard, and Tony Gallino on Drums, redefine oldies with vocal authority and freshness. As exemplified by their signature song "Looking For An Echo", their material is influenced by the music of the 50's and 60's, but they consistently bring a unique and musically sophisticated point of view. In this sense they are classicists, opening the eyes of a new generation to a rich historical musical style. With their cool and sultry musical approach, they give a gift to those who are discovering them for the first.
When Phil Spector discovered The Crystals, not one was yet out of high school. Their first recording, There's No Other (Like My Baby) was also their first hit which catapulted them straight to the "Apollo" theatre. They continued their successful recordings with five more TOP TEN records: Uptown, He's A Rebel, He's Sure The Boy I Love, Da Doo Ron Ron, and Then He Kissed Me. Two of the TOP 50 most popular records in the Rock 'n Roll Hall of Fame belong to The Crystals. The group has scaled from five members to three. The Crystals now consist of Dee Dee Kenniebrew, who was there from the very first recording, Patricia Pritchett-Lewis and Melissa Antoinette Grant.
