Ricky Rebel - (Set time: 10:30 PM)
Ricky Rebel
“It’s as if Bowie had a love child with Madonna.” This is how Ricky Rebel music is described. There is no one like him. The Rebel Experience combines music, dance, art and fashion into a show that is truly fun and entertaining for his fans.



Ricky is a California native who grew up in the suburban town of Upland in the Inland Empire. He is the son of Alex and Debbie Godinez, who have always been supportive of their son’s musical career. Rebel dreamt of being an entertainer from an early age. His parents took him to auditions everyday, and then his career progressed quickly. He hired Kazarian, Spencer and Associates to represent him. He immediately began booking music videos, commercials, and recordings, which lead to him singing on film soundtracks, such as Apollo 13 and Anastasia. Rebel also was featured on television shows that include American Dreams, Boston Public and the top rated daytime serial Days of Our Lives. Additionally, he was featured in the film Austin Powers in the beginning dance sequence.



Rebel’s musical influences stem from his idea of the holy trinity “Madonna,” “David Bowie” and “Prince.” He is inspired by them because they are iconic and adaptable artists who are always evolving and set the trend for today’s musicians. Because of their strong stage presence and personas, he counts as his musical influences Peaches and Lady Gaga. His favorite band is Depeche Mode.



Ricky's first glimpse of fame happened when he stepped into the national spotlight in the early 2000’s, and his life changed forever when legendary entertainer/performer Michael Jackson heard a demo CD of his then pop group project entitled “Forbidden” which later changed to No Authority. That's when the group was signed with MJJ Records, a division of Sony Records. No Authority released their first album Keep On, and the most notable hit songs were "Don't Stop," and "Keep On." The band toured Europe twice opening up for teen sensation Aaron Carter. Their album was produced by the award-winning record producer Rodney Jerkins who's produced hits for Michael Jackson, Beyonce`, Britney Spears, Brandy and Lady Gaga, to name a few.



The original line-up consisted of Josh Keaton, Eric Stretch and Danny Zavatsky. Josh Keaton subsequently left the group and was then replaced by Tommy McCarthy.



The group’s success continued with their second album and hit song "Can I Get Your Number". By then they were no longer with MJJ Records. Another legendary performer/entertainer took notice of the group, Madonna, who signed the group to her record label Maverick Records. The release of the second album self-titled No Authority gave the group the opportunity to tour with mega-teen sensation Britney Spears. In addition to that, the group toured on the Nickelodeon’s “All That Music And More Festival”, appeared on national radio shows, and performed alongside award winning artists such as Destiny's Child, Lenny Kravitz, Christina Aguilera and 98 Degrees. The group’s good fortune continued when they released a song on the Rugrats In Paris soundtrack, which became a gold record.



Although Rebel enjoyed and was grateful for the opportunities that came his way via No Authority throughout the boy band run, he always felt confined and artistically restricted by producers that limited his sound and image. Consequently, it came as no surprise when soon after No Authority disbanded, he transformed his sound and look and started his own band called Harlow, which was geared to more of a rock/pop genre and was featured on Extra TV.



Currently Rebel can be seen performing his fresh unique dance/rock sound in clubs in and around Los Angeles as well as promoting the single, “Get It On”, which is available on iTunes.



While Rebel embraces rock, dance and current pop, his wholly persona on “Get It On” shows his followers that he is not afraid to take chances with his music. He is striving to go further with this music and stage performances and create a state-of-the-art rock/pop album that will solidify his place among music’s elite.



Ricky Rebel is clearly on the path to take his listeners to places that are yet to be determined and build on the legacy he’s rapidly establishing for himself.

Alternative/Rock act Kingsley (previously known as Vintage) formed in mid 2007 after the departure of their original singer. With 2 national tours, college radio airplay and countless TV appearances under their belt, the band; Brandon Sweeney (vocals/guitar), Stephen N. Limbaugh (keys), and Nadir Maraschin (drums) regrouped and elected the then guitarist Brandon Sweeney to become the singer.

With a solid line up change and newly written songs the band started playing shows in the Los Angeles and Las Vegas area and very quickly gained a local fan base and industry attention. Kingsley has been featured on usa4real.com and won the ‘most promising band of the year’ award in 2007. In addition, Kingsley will be featured in the new season of The Real World – Hollywood.
