THE FOUR PREPS
Formed in the Fab. 50’s at legendary Hollywood High School and fronted by Lead Singer Bruce Belland, THE FOUR PREPS were the youngest group ever to sign with a major record label at the time.
They created timeless pop hits like “26 Miles (Santa Catalina)”, “Big Man”, “Lazy Summer Night”, “Got a Girl”, “More Money for You and Me” and “Gidget” as well as a series of smash In Person LIVE “On Campus” Albums celebrating their comedic gifts and talents as comedy impressionists. They ultimately placed 13 hit singles and three best selling albums on the record charts during their celebrated career, then disbanded in 1969.
Belland re-formed the group in 2006 for a T.V. Special on PBS called “Magic Moments: The Best of 50’s Pop” featuring fellow stars Pat Boone, Debbie Reynolds and The Maguire Sisters. That appearance resulted in demand for a world tour which is now underway featuring Original lead singer Belland in a high-spirited, nostalgia-laden show hailed by critics around the world and applauded by Dick Clark who said, “their energy and enthusiasm guarantee a good time… every time!”

Dana Daniels has been called one the funniest comedy magic acts working today. In-fact, he was the very first magician to receive the Comedy Magician of the year award from the world famous Magic Castle in Hollywood, CA.
Corporations such as McDonalds and Lincoln Financial both have had Dana Danaiels perform all over the country for their top sales people, management and store owners. Dana keeps the laughs going at a speedy clip using his trusty side kick Luigi the psychic parrot. Yes, you read correctly - a psychic parrot! In-between Dana's outrageously funny sight gags and poking fun at magicians, he sets out to prove that his little green friend is truly clairvoyant.
Together, they perform such miracles as finding chosen cards, reading the mind of somebody on a cell phone and turning a member of the audiences $100 bill into bird food only to have it reappear inside an egg laid by Luigi. (Tough trick for a male bird.)?
With Dana as the comedian, and Luigi as the straight bird, the duo is perfect to deliver your keynote message while performing off-the-wall magic blended with rapid-fire clean comedy and audience participation.
Dana is fast becoming a familiar face. his many television appearances include Evening at the Improv,
CBS Morning Program, Masters of Illusions, Lance Burton's Guerilla Magic. Dana has also opened for such stars as Charo, Tony Orlando, Amy Grant & Vince Gill.
It's Dana Daniels unique twist on magic that separates him from other magicians, and separates Luigi from other poultry.
DOUG MATTOCKS: "THE WORLD ON A STRING"
Doug Mattocks has been working for the Holland America Cruise Line Company since 1996. The company gave him the chance to write and perform his own solo show in the main rooms of all their ships, and he has been doing just that when he is not touring with the Rhythm Brothers. Besides being given the chance to perform his own show, which is based around his banjo talents, he has also enjoyed the added benefit of seeing the world on Holland America's expense account. This year alone has seen Doug going to such diverse places as Lisbon, Portugal - Alaska - Costa Rica - Panama Canal - Aruba - Mexico - New Zealand - Australia, to name but a small few. And next year, starting in January, Doug will be off to Argentina - Chilie - Antartica - Barbados - and back to Lisbon, Portugal through April. If this wasn't enough, Doug will find time to do dates with the Rhythm Brothers all over America.
