Frank Stallone

Upstairs at Vitellos

4349 Tujunga Avenue, Studio City, CA 91604

8:00pm

I just heard the album you did with Billy May and it knocked my socks off. Salute.” –Frank Sinatra

Simba Records recording artist Frank Stallone is one of the most versatile actors, singers and musicians working today. His explosive voice and musicianship ranges from rock to blues to big band and has garnered him three Platinum Albums, ten Gold Albums and five Gold Singles.

Frank has acted in over 60 films and TV shows, including Tombstone and the cult hit Barfly in which he played the memorable “Eddie” the bartender, which was touted by critic Roger Ebert: “Barfly is a terrific film that features an outstanding performance by Frank Stallone.” He will be seen in the upcoming film Reach Me from director John Herzfeld and will soon be heard as a new character in Hasbro’s hit series Transformers Prime.

Frank has written and published over 200 songs and, with a single in the hit film The Expendables 2 (Don’t Want to Fight With Me) and three original songs, written and performed by him in the upcoming film Reach Me (Dir. John Herzfeld, 2014), Frank has written and recorded compositions for twelve films. The list includes Rocky I, II and III, Rambo II, Paradise Alley and Over the Top. But, it was Frank’s nine songs that he wrote and recorded for the Saturday Night Fever Sequel Staying Alive that earned him a Golden Globe nomination for Best Sound Track and a Grammy nomination for Best Original Song with his single, Far From Over. That song became a massive #1 hit around the world and stayed on the top charts for more than four months and his songs are still played on radio stations throughout the world.

Frank has recorded nine solo albums receiving praise from legends Frank Sinatra, Tony Bennett and Sammy Cahn. His rock-influenced Full Circle, “which I feel is my best” was followed by his American songbook albums, In Love in Vain, with Sammy Nestico, Stallone on Stallone by Request, a compilation of Frank’s film soundtrack tunes, and Songs from the Saddle, showing Frank’s more acoustic side. He’s a big fan favorite in Australia and he performs in concert halls, theaters and clubs all around the world, gaining critical acclaim wherever he goes “he has the crowd enthralled.” (New York Daily News).

“…the players are through the roof. Stallone’s vocals communicate emotions so effectively, he creates an intimacy that’s as rare as it is raw…his skillfulness, easy confidence and amiable personality made his performance not only memorable, but a spellbinding affair.” –Bernard Baur, Music Connection

Gospel Brunch with Ray Sidney and Firm Soundation

Upstairs at Vitellos

4349 Tujunga Avenue, Studio City, CA 91604

12:00pm to 3:00pm

Starting in the year 2001 and continuing to the present, Ray Sidney and Firm Soundation has ministered to audiences of different nationalities, cultures, races, and religious beliefs. They have the unique opportunity and privilege of ministering in song through “Sunday Gospel Brunches”. Initially, they ministered 3 out 4 Sundays in each month at BB Kings Blues Club in Universal City for their Gospel Brunch. But now they can be seen on a regular basis at the House of Blues, which has locations all over America. Their lively, spirit-filled presentation touches all who open their hearts to receive. They have even received attention on CNN.com in an article describing how “Sin and Salvation collide in Las Vegas” during the House of Blues Sunday Gospel Brunch at the Mandalay Bay Hotel.

As leader, Ray Sidney expertly maneuvers the song selections to meet the needs of the audience. He also has a wonderful sense of humor, causing the crowd to burst into unexpected laughter. As stated on CNN.com, he finds the “Amen Corner” in the crowd and even though he keeps the Bible verse quoting to a minimum, it is clear that it’s all about praising Jesus. In addition to leading this spectacular praise, he is well on his way, establishing a Gospel ministry in Japan, traveling at least twice a year to direct Gospel Music seminars. Group leader, Ray Sidney has a love for people and ministry. He volunteers the group to sing every Thanksgiving to minister to the homeless and under-privileged who are bused in to the House of Blues. In addition, he volunteers his time to direct a children’s choir in Watts and an International Choir in Long Beach where most of the members are college students at Long Beach State University.

The level of talent represented in the group is evident when you look at some of the major artists they have been blessed to share the stage with as a group and on an individual basis: Stevie Wonder, Aretha Franklin, Andrea Bocelli, Michael Buble, Keith Richards, Nora Jones, Lou Graham, Donald Lawrence, Kim Burrell, Carmen, Ted and Sherry, Tonex, Michael Sembello, Kenny Loggins, and Richard Carpenter. In 2009 some members were blessed to travel to Europe with their musical messages, visiting Slovenia and Belgrade. They also recorded back ground vocals on the song, “Let it go” written by singer, writer, and actor Jacky Cheung from Hong Kong.

This group could also be considered “A Family Affair” as 2 members are brother and sister: Ray Sidney and Susan Sidney-Massengale and one neice, Maree Reed, brother-in-law Eric O’neal with the remaining members being dear friends: Sandy Adams, Stephan Gibu, Ivan Hicks, Tasia Woods, Tenderly Lavender, Dave Clark, Danisha Johnson, Alexandra Taylor, and Sunnie Paxson. The love they have for one another is evident when they minister!
