The Message Tour

“The Message Tour 2010″

Featuring 4 Legendary Acts on the Same Stage

Legendary Rap/Hip Hop acts, Furious 5, Kurtis Blow, The Sugarhill Gang and Rob Base have put together a memorable Tour package that will get the party started with the Rap/Hip Hop sound that started it all.

Furious 5

The first ever rap group to be inducted into the rock & roll hall of fame!

The story of the Furious 5 Emcees is one of many firsts. These Bronx natives were the first rap artists to win Grammy awards, guest star with R&B artists (Chaka Khan with Melle Mel on “I Feel For You” in 1984), first to inject social commentary into rap, with the genre changing “The Message” in 1982, first to endorse a political candidate with the song “Jesse” in 1984, first to be inducted into the rock & roll hall of fame and the list goes on. That’s just the commercial side, after rap was released on records. Before rap was released on records they were the first to write full rhymes on the beat – unlike the nursery style that many Djs were using at the time.

Sugar Hill Gang – “Rapper’s Delight”

The Sugarhill Gang is known for introducing HipHop to the World with the First Multi- Platinum 12′ Single ” Rappers Delight ” as well as other Platinum Singles : 8th Wonder and Apache !!!!

I said a hip hop the hippie the hippie to the hip hip hop, a you dont stop the rock it to the bang bang boogie say up jumped the boogie to the rhythm of the boogie, the beat now what you hear is not a test I’m rappin to the beat and me, the groove, and my friends are gonna try to move your feet see i am wonder mike and i like to say hello to the black, to the white, the red, and the brown, the purple and yellow but first i gotta bang bang the boogie to the boogie say up jump the boogie to the bang bang boogie let’s rock, you don’t stop rock the riddle that will make your body rock well so far you’ve heard my voice but i brought two friends along and next on the mike is my man hank come on, hank, sing that song

The Sugarhill Gang is an American hip hop group, known mostly for their biggest hit, “Rapper’s Delight”, the first hip hop single recorded to become a Top 40 hit.

Kurtis Blow

One of the founders and creators of recorded rap, stands as an emerging leader in a new generation of rappers with street sense, social criticism, and commercial savvy, a timeless artist and hip hop legend, Kurtis Blow has been instrumental in raising up a generation of MCs, and he will soon carry the torch for hip hop music into new arenas. In 1979, at the age of twenty, Kurtis Blow became the first Rapper to be signed by a major label. Mercury released Christmas Rappin, and it sold over 400,000 copies and it became an annual classic. Its gold followup The Breaks helped ignite a still spreading international Rap Attack. He released 10 Albums over 11 years —

Rob Base

Best-known for his 1988 platinum hip hop classic “It Takes Two” Rob Base along with childhood friend DJ EZ Rock rode their smash hit onto R&B radio stations as well as dance clubs around the world and provided a touchstone for the style known as hiphouse.

Rob Base is one of the most popular rap stars of all time and has fans all over the world. Even though Rob Base has sold millions and millions of records, he is one of the most down to earth cats you will ever meet and that’s why his fans adore him so much.

You can hear this Year’s Oscar Winner “Sandra Bullock” singing ” it takes two ” in the Blockbuster Movie “Proposal”; as well as in the new “Snoop Dogg’s song “I Wanna Rock” !!!!

Alabama Blues Brothers

Jamey and Justin Crisler as
“The Blues Brothers”

When the Crisler Brothers (Jamey and Justin), a.k.a. The Alabama Blues Brothers, claim they’re the only Blues Brothers impersonators in the state and, to their knowledge, the only impersonators nationwide who are actual brothers, its hard to dispute it – especially when it’s said with a stem expression topped with night-black Ray-Bans.

Unlike the characters musicians/actors John Belushi and Dan Aykroyd made famous by the 1980 movie that sets the record for most cars wrecked in one film, the Crislers never spent time behind bars. Justin “Elwood” Crisler, 30, has a degree in criminal justice and performs the blues full time. Jamey “Jake” Crisler, 37, is a Nurse for a Hospital in North Alabama. Once in their Blues Brothers outfits, all that changes.

Jamey had an idea to show-off their look. He bought a 1976 Dodge Coronet from a junkyard, slapped on black-and-white paint to make it look like the movie’s worn police car, and convinced Justin to join him on a visit to the Hard Rock Cafe in Nashville in 1998.

“We were just going to walk in and see what kind of reaction we’d get, just for fun,” Jamey said. “The manager ran to the back, threw on ‘Soul Man,’ and announced that the Blues Brothers were there. Next thing we know, we’re standing on top of the tables dancing to it. The place went wild.”
Then, in Courtland, where Jamey lived, they entered the town’s Christmas parade. This had no holiday ring to it, but after all, who could turn down two big guys in dark suits and sunglasses?

They practiced some moves by watching the movie and old episodes of “Saturday Night Live” in which the musicians appeared, put together a sound system with backup tracks of Blues Brothers’ tunes, and printed some business cards in black-and-white.

“One venue would lead to two or three others,” Jamey said. Now The Alabama Blues Brothers have performed to over 1600 audiences and have been reviewed as two of the most realistic Blues Brother Impersonators in The Nation.

Where did all this showmanship spring from? Justin was involved in theater and band in high school and Jamey sang in Church choir. That’s it. “The odd thing was we were both raised real conservative and had never done anything edgy, just straight down the road kind of guys,” Jamey said. “This was a new kind of thing.”

Dressed in their suits, the brothers do the same thing as their movie heroes, riding the streets, barking out about their show in shameless self-promotion. For larger shows, the brothers are able to book their six to eight piece band to accompany them. “In 2000 we hooked up with some great musicians and took the show to the next level, we were actually putting the band back together!” Justin said.

Riding in the back seat of the “Bluesmobile,” surrounded by speakers and other sound equipment, staring at the silhouettes of the Crislers is like watching one long extended scene from the movie. Saxophonist Jim Beck said. On the road, he said he sometimes feels he’s experiencing things that might have ended up on the movie’s cutting-room floor.

Jamey has the lead vocals and Justin sings backing vocals while playing the harmonica. Their show staples include “Soul Man,” “Hey, Bartender,” “Jailhouse Rock”, “Give Me Some Lovin” and “Rawhide.” The Alabama Blues Brothers have performed around the Nation and even toured Japan. Some of their clients have included Jeff Cook of The Group Alabama, The United States Army, The United States Navy, Beale St. in Memphis, multiple Corporate events from Florida to Washington, DC, and many festivals including The Big Spring Jam in Huntsville Alabama, The Blue Hill Fair in Maine, Fiesta Mexicana in Topeka Kansas, and Celebrate Bonita in Bonita Springs Florida.

They’ve also performed for fund-raisers including campaigns for the national World War II memorial, American Cancer Society, American Red Cross and the Children’s Miracle Network to name a few. “When we perform, it’s a clean act that all ages can enjoy.” Justin says. Saying that, while wearing the suits and dark sunglasses, you have to believe them.

Frank Gomez - R&B

Frank Gomez


Big Frank Gomez takes it back. Way back. The unsung Austin, Texas blues hero has been a working musician since childhood, when he was taken under wing of one Sergeant Venible, a gentle, Black bluesman who taught him guitar. Hitting his stride roughly 40 years later, he issues his first major solo album and offers advice gleaned from Seinfeld.

“There was one show where he [Seinfeld] said, "If you’re not a genius, surround yourself with geniuses.” And on his latest salvo, he delivers a straight-ahead dose of Texas rhythm & blues laced with a healthy load of Tex-Mex funk & soul that includes guest turns by Ruben Ramos of the Mexican Revolution, Texas Tornados' Augie Meyers, Los Texmaniacs' and Producer Max Baca, David Farias of the famed La Tropa F, and five-time Grammy Award-winning accordion maestro Flaco Jimenez. Produced at Blue Cat Studios, Under the Influence, as the record is aptly called, gives newcomers and old fans a pitch-perfect glimpse at a rollicking Texas barnburner bluesman who has finally called in his chips and reunited with his musical brethren on both sides of the radio dial.

Raised on military bases throughout the U.S. and Europe, Frank Gomez and his younger siblings —encouraged by their father who bought them instruments and inspired by an uncle who played sax in the Tejano orchestras of the big band era—built on the adage that a family who plays together, stays together.

Having lived in Austin during high school, the Gomez family eventually made it back to Central Texas in the mid-’70s touring across the country to play in juke joints, bars and army base canteens, Big Frank also absorbed the music that surrounded him at home. “I always loved Tejano,” he says. Hooking up as an occasional sideman with the Ramos clan, perhaps Austin’s most notable Tejano export, Gomez also heard and admired the music of Little Joe y La Familia, Shorty & the Corvettes and Augustin “El Guti” Ramirez. Falling under the influence of the music that was in his bones as deeply as were the blues and soul, he actively sought out Tejano heavy-weights, among them Jay Perez, Freddy Fender, David Lee Garza and the late Randy Garibay, the artist he is most often compared to.

When his brothers retired from music in 1998, about five years after the death of their father, Big Frank continued to play. While he was in consistent demand as a guitar slinger, he was also busy composing. The album is a testament to the length and breadth of his career and his talent as a songwriter. Featuring what has become his signature song, the Bobby Bland hit, “Stormy Monday,” Under the Influence also features six original songs, an Augie Meyers-penned tune called “Hey Sarita” and three covers. Among the latter are the Wilson Pickett hit “Don’t Let the Green Grass Fool Ya” and “Barranquillero,” a traditional cumbia sung by none other than the legendary Ruben Ramos. Tejana sweetheart Stefani Montiel leaves her incomparable mark with background vocals on four of the album’s tracks.

Although Gomez is proud of the company that has joined him on his triumphant solo debut, he is also pleased that he was able to coax his brothers, Joe and Danny Gomez, out of retirement for a guest appearance on the record as well. The album has the smooth consistency of a slow, mellow buzz, the drift of its horns, steel strings and solid bass lines like an aged brandy. Compelling and playful at the same time, Under the Influence is a delicious blend of vintage legends and the edgy, as yet unseen energy emanating from the hollow body electric Gibson 333 guitar Big Frank Gomez lays into time after time.

Still going strong, he admits that when his mother, now a proud cancer survivor, began radiation treatment, he shuttered his successful auto garage while he drove her to and from chemotherapy sessions. As a result, he began playing music again full-time. “In a way, I was lucky. I was forced into doing what I’d always wanted to do when I was young, play music,” he says. “I’m very proud of this record. And I look forward to going on the road behind it.”

Chris Boss and The Fuss

The Fuss


Chris Boss (lead vocals, lead guitar)
Anthony Aleman (bass guitar, vocals)
Rex Alan (guitar, vocals
Robert Edwards (percussion, vocals)

The Fuss was recently voted "Group Most Deserving of a Major Recording Contract" in a regional magazine". One listen to their brand new album ("One Hot Night" released June 06 on Electro-Sonic Records) and you'll know exactly why.

The Fuss is led by Chris Boss, a unique Texas artist gushing with charisma and a passion for entertaining people with hooky, melodic tunes delivered in a spontaneous, energetic live show. Add to that Chris’ award winning guitar playing and a band of world class pros and you have a recipe for success!

Chris got his start by entering local battle of the band, and guitar competions. Winning almost everything he entered gave Chris a underground buzz through the media coverage of the events without really having to work the bars like most of his peers. When Chris finally decided to jump into the club scene, he made an immediate impact and before he knew it, he was playing 250 dates a year all over Texas. Chris Boss- "We don't mind playing cover music at all, it gives us a platform to showcase our skills and our original music too! I think one thing that gave us an advantage when we first started was that we really try to involve the audience". Says Chris. "Most bands were up there looking at their sneakers the whole time during their performance". When The Fuss hits the stage, it is a show, an event, and the audience is always a big part of it!"

Now, with the release of their debut album “One Hot Night” Chris and the boys are ready to show the world what The Fuss is all about.

Chris has opened for artists such as KISS, Steve Vai and others.

He is referred to by critics as a "local phenom" -(Jim Beal music editor) San Antonio Express News, for his versatile guitar playing and dynamic presence.

Chris is a regular winner of "The Best of San Antonio" readers poll in the San Antonio Current.

Three time winner of the "San Antonio Guitar Wars" competition.

"This is one of, if not THE hottest unsigned rock acts in texas".
-Daniel Becker "Indie Source Magazine".

Their debut album The Fuss "One Hot Night" is an 11 songs rollercoaster ride through the diverse, twisting tracks of Chris Boss' heart and soul.

Co- Produced by Bryan Scott of The Union Underground (Columbia Records)
