Leif Garrett
Leif Garrett
Leif Garrett burst onto the scene in 1966 at the early age of five. Garrett began a career in acting with his debut in the quintessential period film, Bob & Carol & Ted & Alice. He starred in over sixty hit television shows, such as being the semi-regular on the critically acclaimed hit television shows, The Waltons and Family. But it was his portrayal of a pony express rider in the television special, Peter Lundy and the Medicine Hat Stallion that garnered Garrett the honor of being inducted into the Cowboy Hall of Fame. From then on he continued to do more TV and film including Walking Tall and the hit television series, Three for the Road. This family drama was Garrett’s launching pad for the recording phenomena that was to occur.

Having achieved tremendous success as an actor, Garrett took on the music industry. He became a multi gold and platinum recording artist and one of the biggest teen idols of all time, gracing magazine covers all over the world. In 1977, Garrett released his self-titled debut album and climbed the music charts with his remakes of “Runaround Sue” (#13) and “Surfin’ USA” (#20). In 1978 he released his sophomore album entitled Feel The Need. The album quickly became a chart-topper with Leif’s biggest hit, “I Was Made For Dancin”.

After releasing three more albums, Garrett decided to turn his attention to acting once again, co-starring in Francis Ford Coppola’s film classic, The Outsiders in 1983. He continued to choose other notable roles in the eighties in movies such as Thunder Alley and Shaker Run. In 1991, Garrett appeared with fellow former teen idol, David Cassidy, in the seventies spoof, Spirit of ’76. Audiences were amazed and impressed with Garrett’s comedic ability and talent.

It was in 1998 when the music arena became reacquainted with Leif Garrett on VH1’s highly acclaimed Behind The Music series. The response from the viewing public was sensational and it has become one of the highest rated episodes of Behind The Music.

Garrett later formed a rock band and toured across the USA while still making appearances on television and doing some theater work. In 2006, Garrett appeared in the Celebrity Edition of Fear Factor. He won the grand prize of $50,000. In 2008, the producers of TruTV’s The Smoking Gun Presents: World’s Dumbest… added Garrett to their cast of celebrity commentators. Leif was featured on the hit TV series for 14 seasons.

Garrett still continues to write and record new music. One of Garrett’s many song placement credits includes David Spade’s 2003 hit comedy, Dickie Roberts: Former Child Star, in which Garrett portrayed himself as well as wrote, produced and performed the title track. In 2007, Garrett released his latest album, Three Sides Of…. The album includes originals, covers and a remake of his classic hit, “I Was Made For Dancin”. Leif is also featured on Tantric’s 2013 album, 37 Channels. He co-wrote and is guest vocals on the track, “My Turn”.
Emperors And Elephants
Emperors And Elephants
Chicago's own Emperors and Elephants is a hard driving modern heavy rock band in the vein of Alice in chains, Shinedown, and Seether.

Formed in 2010, they have been gathering great momentum in Chicago and its surrounding area. Their song "Your Will" has been featured on Chicago area active rock stations 105.5 The KAT and WIIL Rock. The track gained so much attention from WIIL rock listeners that they were invited to play an on air performance.

Emperors and Elephants draw their influence from 90′s grunge and blend that influence with the current hard rock scene. This unique combination gives them the edge of paying homage to some classic acts, yet blending it with the sounds of today to create an original sound that is lacking in the current music scene.

With the recent addition of former Texas Hippie coalition guitarist Randy "The Arsonist" Cooper, they have put the finishing touches on their debut album "Devil in the Lake", to be released by Pavement Entertainment in January 2014.
