This week on The Entertainment Engine we welcome Jim Piddock. Jim is an actor, writer, and producer, who began his career on the stage in England, before emigrating to the U.S. in his early twenties.  He made his theatrical debut in the U.S. in “The Boy’s Own Story”, a one-man show about a soccer goalkeeper, at the Julian Theatre in San Francisco. The show was an instant success with critics and audiences, winning Jim the Bay Area Critics’ Best Actor Award. The show was then produced Off-Broadway and he quickly gained the attention of the New York theatre scene. That same year (1982), he was cast in Noel Coward’s “Present Laughter” by George C. Scott, who directed/starred in the revival, which also featured Nathan Lane, Christine Lahti, Dana Ivey, and Kate Burton.  After replacing Frank Langella in “Design For Living” at the Circle-In-The-Square theatre, he moved to Los Angeles and has since appeared in a long succession of tv shows, such as “The Tracey Ullman Show”, “Coach”, “Max Headroom”, “The Twilight Zone”, “Murder She Wrote”, “Mad About You”, “Angel”, “ER”, “Friends”, “Crossing Jordan”, “The Drew Carey Show”, “Lost”, “Monk”, “Without A Trace”, “Dollhouse”, “Party Down”, “Law And Order: LA”, “Castle”, “Two And A Half Men”, “Children’s Hospital”, “Mom”, “The Royals”, and “The Grinder”.

This week on the Entertainment Engine podcast we welcome Gill Tee, co-founder of Black Deer, an Award-winning 3-day UK festival celebrating Americana music & its culture. Gill started her music career at Capital Radio, one of the largest commercial radio stations in London. Her role at the start was to promote ‘on air’, music events and festivals for the leading UK promoters of the time. She worked her way through the ranks becoming Head of Entertainment at the station, looking after all the live music elements, along with developing new projects. During this period Gill was charged with pulling together, the first 100,000 capacity Party in the Park at Hyde Park in 1998. This is where Gill fell in love with producing events. Having secured a production company to work with on the project, and watching a world build from a greenfield site, it became apparent to her that this would be her next move into the world of live music. Gill took the massive step of leaving a secure job at Capital to start her own events business, Entertee.  Gill was determined to go it alone but was persuaded by Deb Shilling,  whom she had worked with at Capital that having a business partner would be more fun, so she and Debs set about finding an office and building a business. In 2009, she was asked by one of the UK’s top promoters, Vince Power,  to produce a new festival in Kent, the Hop Farm Festival. There she learned first-hand the ups and downs of producing a festival from scratch.  The Hop Farm was headlined by some incredible artists, Bob Dylan, Neil Young the Eagles and hundreds more. The performance that stood out above all others during the 5 years of Hop Farms life, was the iconic Prince’s first and only UK festival appearance.  https://blackdeerfestival.com The episode is available on all streaming/ download platforms.

This week on The Entertainment Engine Podcast we speak with Los Angeles based guitarist, vocalist and composer ROCKY KRAMER who has been song-writing from an early age. Hailing from Norway, Rocky Kramer is truly a modern-day Viking, poised to take no prisoners as he conquers the hearts, minds and souls of rockers around the world! Rocky is a formidable musician. Rocky hosts a show called Rock 'n' Roll Tuesdays on Twitch, and has secured the lead role in a movie called Rockin' In Time. We discuss his early beginnings in Norway, how he found his love for rock music, performing live and touring, and we learn about his debut album "Firestorm". Born in the 1990s to musician parents, few could have known that Rocky would inherit his parents' passion for music, ultimately transforming into Norway's ambassador of rock.  While some homes have a piano, Rocky's home had two – one for the upstairs and another for the downstairs.   Although Rocky's father was the first violinist in the Trondheim Symphony Orchestra, his mother was an accomplished pianist in her own right.  At the age of four, young Rocky began exploring this massive instrument. Rocky recalls "I was fascinated when I discovered I could play a melody!"  Filled with musical curiosity, the four-year-old began banging out rudimentary melodies that foreshadowed the composer he would become. Rocky was voted Best New Male Rock musician by the editors of Rock Over and is a member of the National Academy of Recording Arts & Sciences (“The Grammys”).  https://www.rockykramer.com The episode is available on all streaming/ download platforms.

This week we speak with Super Producer, Victor Merritt, who has sold well over 30 million records in Pop, Hip Hop, Gospel, and R&B. Victor has received a Grammy nomination and numerous Billboard and BMI accolades, including having the largest selling male R&B artist RCA has had in over 31 years. Victor work over the years has included working with these iconic artists; Diana Ross, Brownstone, BabyFace, Kirk Franklin, K-CI & JOJO, Bobby Brown, Rome, 3T, U2 and countless others. When the daughter of legendary singer Jocelyn Brown heard some of the early demos, she introduced Victor and his production partner Gerald to her mother, and Jocelyn mentored his amazing young talent and introduced him to the way real singers record. In fact, Jocelyn’s single Freedom was his first professional music placement back in 1990. Once Jocelyn left the states and moved to the UK, Victor continued to perfect his craft and landed his next placement as a young artist at Atlantic Records in 1991. On the podcast, we also learned about an imposter using Victor's name, Victor "Vino" Merritt on LinkedIn. For over 3 years, Victor had no idea that a fake Victor Merritt was posing as him. This fake person created a sophisticated scam to prey on very green artists. This fake person used his music catalogue, easily searchable online, added fake facts, and fooled people into believing that they were a Grammy-nominated producer.  The Real Victor Merritt website; www.victormerritt.org Follow & subscribe to ''The Entertainment Engine'' for weekly news & updates.

This week on the show we chat with Scott Page, who is an American musician, technologist, and entrepreneur known for his saxophone and rhythm guitar work with iconic bands including Pink Floyd, Supertramp, and Toto. Scott is currently CEO of Think: EXP, a Los Angeles-based media company focused on live immersive entertainment. Scott has led a number of ventures, including Walt Tucker Productions, an audio-video post-production company that produced projects for The Rolling Stones, Bon Jovi, Janet Jackson, Garth Brooks, and others. He was also the founder of 7th Level Inc, a CD-ROM gaming educational software company that produced the world’s first interactive musical cartoon. Scott has also lectured at numerous new media conferences and universities and was also an adjunct professor at the University of Southern California’s Thornton School of Music, in the Music Industry program. Scott is the son of musician Bill Page, best known for his work as a reed player and member of the Lawrence Welk Band. He was also a fixture with the Tonight Show starring Johnny Carson. Scott Page joined Supertramp in support of the Famous Last Words Tour (1983). It marked the first time additional musicians would join Supertramp as touring band members. The tour also featured Fred Mandel among the added personnel. During that tour, Scott Page was also occasionally playing the guitar and the flute. In 1985 Scott Page had the opportunity to tour with Toto (between the end of Supertramp's Famous Last Words Tour and the band's return to the studio for work on Brother Where You Bound). This was a promotional tour for Toto's album Isolation. As Pink Floyd prepared for their first tour in a new incarnation, Gilmour and Mason began looking for musicians that could add a combination of musical skills and "showmanship" in an effort to put across more energy in the band's stage show.
