"Hey. It's me." Nothing says relaxing like an old friends voice. We share. We gloat. Heck, we even lie a little. So c’mon tell me something I don’t already know. Because hey, its only Paul…how dangerous could this get? -Kyle Prater, Poet
If the Renaissance happened again in our times, in our America the performing arts would be the premiere medium. Particularly the
art of music is a constant companion to the greatest audience. To seek the great names of America’s New Renaissance music would lead us to genius performers like Frank Sinatra, Perry Como, Dean
Martin just to name a very few. It would not be a finished search, though, until we found Robert Davi.
“Robert Davi?” You ask? Who doesn’t know the amazing actor from his television and big screen appearances? His is a broad
repertoire of talent from which to draw. Robert Davi has walked the Silver screen and raised a golden voice for the performing arts. To hear his voice is to slip through the fingers of time and
find oneself in the golden age of crooners. In Davi’s abum “The Road to Romance” he sings those remarkable songs popularized by Frank Sinatra. The impeccable production of this work, by Phil

Elliot Mintz is a former radio and television personality who went on to become a media consultant for many well-known celebrities and CEOs. I cannot think of anyone in the business they sometimes call the Hollywood “entertainment industry” who has grabbed my attention quite like Elliot Mintz. I cannot really think of many people who would not find him interesting…years ago when he represented a lot of the A-list celebrities like Paris Hilton, he seemed a million miles away from my own life. Then there was the many recordings I heard of his nationally syndicated radio program, “The Lost Lennon Tapes” that played rare alternate takes, composition tapes and interviews of Elliot’s friend John Lennon. John Lennon along with maybe Frank Sinatra or Elvis Presley may be the only people in the history of popular music with enough interest that an entire radio series could be devoted to them. You may think Paris Hilton and John Lennon are worlds apart, but you have to understand Elliot Mintz. Click here for more...
