Rob Townsend is a British rock and blues drummer. He was influenced by jazz greats such as Buddy Rich and Gene Krupa and is best known for being the drummer for progressive rock band Family and later The Blues Band.
Jason Lent is the Operations Manager for the Hard Rock Cafe in Las Vegas. Featuring 42,000 square feet of pure unadulterated rock n’ roll, the cafe, located next to the MGM Grand Hotel, provides three-floors of non-stop action and features the world’s largest Rock Shop. An interactive “Rock Wall”, interactive “Microsoft Surface” tables, hi-speed Internet access, a contemporary lounge and bar, and patio dining are here to experience while enjoying an unobstructed view of the world famous Las Vegas Strip.
Lisa Stansfield is a English recording artist and actress. Born in Manchester, England, her career began in 1980 when she won the singing competition, Search for a Star. Her first solo album, Affection (1989) and its worldwide chart-topping lead single “All Around the World” were major breakthroughs in her career. She was nominated for two Grammy Awards and Affection is currently her best-selling album.
Kayleigh Leith and her father sang in church, parties and even had a karaoke machine at home that they would spend hours on. Kayleigh loved being the center of attention and right in the spotlight and after initially pursuing a career in music education, she decided to give that up because, as she says, “I wanted to sing music more than teach music”. Kayleigh is now a singer-songwriter and you can find out more about her at www.kayleighleith.com
