The Kings of 88

88 keys on the piano, 4 top pros from the LA music scene, on 1 stage having a rocking good time! That’s The Kings of 88. Presenting a fun-filled tribute to the legends of piano-rock including Elton John (“Take Me To The Pilot,” “Honky Cat”), Billy Joel (“My Life” & “Big Shot”), Billy Preston (“Nothing From Nothing”), Little Richard (“Keep a Knockin’”), Leon Russell (“Tightrope”), Stevie Wonder (“Living’ For The City”), Bruce Hornsby (“The Way It Is”), Coldplay (“Clocks”), Jerry Lee Lewis (“Whole Lotta Shakin’ Goin’ On”), and more.

Made up of an all-star cast of Los Angeles musicians, “The Kings” have carefully crafted a powerful set of music paying homage to piano-rock’s most iconic artists. These longtime friends – each with their own impressive list of credits – have come together to present a collection of songs close to their hearts performed with a sincerity and conviction that will uplift and entertain any audience. Unlike other tribute acts, “The Kings” are not performing material from any specific artist, but rather presenting the iconic classics of the great piano-rock genre that have left an indelible mark on pop music history, as well as select tracks from contemporary artists who are carrying the piano-rock torch into the new millennium.

Founder, keyboardist, lead-singer, and San Diego native, Tommy Reeves is an acclaimed composer whose compositions have been heard on American Idol, The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, NBC hit shows Smash and Parks and Recreation, The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, E! Special Timbaland, The Oprah Winfrey Show, Access Hollywood, Melrose Place, E! News Live, So You Think You Can Dance, and Dateline NBC. His performance credits include work alongside Reba McEntire, Tony Bennett, Ziggy Marley, Melissa Etheridge, Jesse McCartney, and Burt Bacharach. Tommy is also an experienced educator with nearly 20 years at the world-renowned Musicians Institute, including a 4-year stint as director of the keyboard program. Tommy has also released two solo albums, Anyone Who Isn’t Me and Another Lap Around The Sun. Reeves’ first love is the deep tradition of the epic rock piano tunes presented by The Kings of 88, and he feels right at home fronting a show that pays homage to the renowned artists who have brought the piano center stage.

Drummer and Allentown, PA native Drew Megna is both an alumnus of and instructor at Musicians Institute. His deep knowledge of music reaches across all genres, from rock to funk, jazz to fusion, and beyond. He has studied with some of the most significant drummers of our time, including Dave Weckl, Ralph Humphrey, and Joe Porcaro. His impressive performance credits include: LL Cool J, Smoky Robinson, and Dakota Moon.

Bassist and Washington, D.C. native Maurice Verloop is an experienced session and live bass player who was awarded “Bass Educator of the Year” at Musicians Institute. His long list of recording and performing credits include: Carl Anderson, Nick Menza of Megadeath, Ray Luzier of Korn, and Bruce Conti of Tower of Power, to name a few.

Los Angeles native and University of California Santa Barbara alumnus Joel Wachbrit is an acclaimed guitarist, composer, and producer and two-time winner of the prestigious BMI Film and TV Award for “Theme Song of a Top Ten Show” for composing the theme song for Shark on CBS. Joel’s compositions have been heard on television airwaves worldwide including; True Blood, Dexter, Modern Family, House, Treme, Sons of Anarchy, Homeland, CSI: New York, NCIS and The Office. His recording credits include; Ace Frehley of KISS, Edgar Winter, and The Three Degrees.

These talented friends created The Kings of 88 to share their love of this amazing music. Appealing to a diverse audience, they present an electrifying concert retrospective celebrating these great artists and songs, infused with their own infectious humor and enthusiasm. Their show promises to leave audiences coming back for more!

Vocalist Trish Hatley is one of the most beloved and enduring figures on the West Coast music scene today. With her easy sense of swing, beautiful tone and innate sensitivity to the lyric, she effectively balances technical mastery and genuine accessibility, making her extremely popular among jazz fans and critics alike. Trish performs and records with her own quintet, as well as the vocal jazz trio Trish, Hans and Phil. She has appeared in multiple Pop Symphony concerts and loves “singing with swingin’ Big Bands” whenever the opportunity presents itself. Trish is particularly revered for her mastery of the Great American Songbook. In the words of music blogger Robert Nicisoa, “She sings songs that were written years ago but her approach breathes new life and sparkle into all of them!”

Trish has released eight critically acclaimed CD’s to date; six with the Trish Hatley Quintet and two with the vocal jazz trio “Trish, Hans & Phil.” Her most recent CD “I Remember, 2nd Set,” released in 2015, is a follow-up to 2010’s “I Remember,” a heartfelt homage to the classic jazz standards. “I Remember, 2nd Set” has been well received by critics throughout the U.S. and Europe.

Joe Cardillo

pro-2
Joe Cardillo creates a unique combination of live loops using percussive beats by thumping his guitar, laying down the chords, and playing bass lines (using the octave guitar pedal).In addition, he sings the melody while often times looping vocal harmonies. Perhaps the most unique aspect of his show is Joe’s ability to open up the songs by picking up any of his four saxophones and playing soulful solos with the loops in the background.Joe’s sound can be described as a melting pot of One Republic, Dave Matthews, Van Morrison, and Jason Mraz topped off with tasteful saxophone solos.

         
1filterbThroughout his music career, Joe has opened up for acts such as Sister Hazel, Dispatch, Everclear, Eric Martin, The Pat McGee Band and worked with Lakewest Studios producer Jack Gauthier (Dispatch, Pete Francis, Rich Price, Cardinal Direction).Joe has brought a whole new meaning to a “solo” act. In fact, when listening to his CD, numerous people have commented their disbelief in one person being able to produce the array of instruments and vocals without pre-recorded tracks. In order to truly appreciate and understand his style, a fan must see him play live at a show.The interaction and relationship Joe employs with his movement of tapping the various floor pedals to create loops and different sounds, while simultaneously playing his instruments and singing provides the audience with a voluminous sound and a distinctive live show that will make them come back for more.
