In Memory of DJ Doc Love (Danny Kaye)

 

Sheldon Price

 

From honey-smooth baritone to crystalline tenor, the voice is a fine-tuned, precision instrument and Price is the skilled craftsman who wields its four-and-one-half octave range with practised ease.

He's an artist with a limitless palette of bold and subtle colours setting moods and creating atmospheres with insistent growls and sensual whispers or whatever it takes. He is an artist with a profound appreciation for the artistry of writers and producers.

Why Lou Rawls? Sheldon Price was raised and influenced by the Golden Era of Music when singers like Lou Rawls, Jeffrey Osborn, Johnny Hartman, Tom Jones, and Billy Joel sang of love and respect for all women. Like the great Lou Rawls, Sheldon wants to entertain you with class, style, and grace. Accompanied by Musical Director Brett Jolly and his 4 piece band, the group have the ability to recreate some of the most incredible live music of our era.

Sheldon is also an established nightclub performer in Las Vegas and has hosted shows for the Delfonics, Harold Melvin and the Blue Note. He has entertained at The Sands, The Wyndham, The Clarion hotels, and Kelsev's Restaurant in Ocean Casino in Atlantic City. He has an ongoing show at the Clarion Hotel in Mt. Laurel, NJ, titled 'Sheldon Price Presents the Spotlight', where poets, singers and comedians can shine in a lavish environment.

Like a fine wine, Sheldon Price has grown bolder and better as his career progresses.

Years of meticulous preparation have taught him that talent alone, even a prodigious talent like his, is not enough to make it in the highly-competitive music industry. He will take his rightful place in the pantheon of music industry stars because he is a blue-collar worker who demands more from himself than any rigours of the weight room to keep his body taut or the hours of daily vocalizing to fine-tune the voice and polish his performance skills, Sheldon Price has devoted every effort to reaching the top. So if you haven't heard him yet, you will. Sheldon Price, remember the name. You won't forget the voice.

She is a torch bearer. A keeper of the flame. King holds the preservation and presentation of the traditional style of Jazz singing close to her heart. No gimmicks, no pyrotechnics, just an intense focus on the melody and the lyrical content. It is this philosophy that finds her in Paris, Milan, Israel and all points in between acting as the Ambassador-Ess for the nostalgic sounds of Jazz.
