May 31st

Diane grew up singing in clubs professionally. I enjoy singing music from nearly any genre.  Country, Pop, Oldies, or Classic Rock.
  Many people have compared my vocal style to Stevie Nicks, but I mimic no one, instead endeavoring to make each song I sing my own.
  I can't promise that everyone will like my music, but I will promise that each song I sing will be from the heart and done to the very best of my ability to entertain.

Exposure to all kinds of music, from gospel to bluegrass, rock and pop as a child has made me the diverse singer that I am today.. I rock with the best, share my soul with country and have been known to have a sexy raspy song here and there.
 To me, music is a window to the soul conveying feelings as well as lyrical and musical information.  I do my best to feel a song as I sing, and hope to pass it on to my audience.  If you feel it, and enjoy my performance, then I have succeeded.

Rocky Toocool has been in SL for over 4 years but has been singing since he was 6 years old. Hailing from Daytona Beach, Florida & Macon Georgia Rocky has a style all his own that will keep your coming back to his shows for more. Every show Rocky does is different with new music at each performance. His music ranges from Country, Blues, Southern Rock, Ballroom, Classic Rock & Oldies bit goodies. His performances as Rocky Elvis are tributes to the King of Rock and Roll known as Elvis Presley. Rocky performs Elvis Rock Style, A show you don’t want to miss.

"At the age of four my mother plopped me on a stage, at the age of 15, I began recording voices for cartoon and commercial work. I put myself through college by recording jingles, traveling the country performing at fairs, malls, and amusement parks I spent the 80's singing lead in bands.
