Your Songs

Where were you in 1964 when you heard “You’ve Lost That Lovin’ Feelin’ playing in the background? How about “How Deep is Your Love?” They go from “On Broadway” to “Uptown Funk Gonna Give it to You” ….. and scatting. Their scatting duo is a showstopper.

Clint recalls growing up in a biracial musical family and Earl brings the audience back to his youth in Louisiana. The conversations bring us closer to the two, but the music and the songs they sing knock us out of our chairs. Clint tells us “We’re here to talk about music and sing for you.” And do they ever!.I always love hearing Clint sing “At the Rendezvous”, a single from his latest album Rendezvous which was nominated for two Grammy® Awards in 2018.

Earl tells us that when he was 15 he wanted to be James Brown and then gives us his version of “Sex Machine” including some fancy footwork. There’s a bit of gospel and Earl gives us a little Country/Western. The Bo Jangles duet is worth the price of admission and we all loved the Elvis Medley. Turner, a multi-talented singer, songwriter, musician, dancer and actor is a 30 year veteran of Vegas showrooms and countless casino theaters across the country.

The Show

Featured songs include hits from Michael Jackson, Al Green, Bruno Mars, Blake Shelton, Bill Withers and Irving BerlinThe high energy performances pay tribute to Stevie Wonder and Prince and of course Frank & Sammy. You know who I mean, right.
