|Fine Tuned DJs|
After over three years of entertaining Cleveland area weddings and parties, Rick and Frank incorporated a new name for long-time friends who have joined forces, combining their talents in the music and entertainment fields to form a relationship that will bring the professional quality of service you expect for your guests.
Rick began his on-air radio career in Cleveland at 92.3 where he was also the music director. From there he moved on to 98.5, ZIP-106, and WIXY-1260. He was an instructor at the WIXY School of Broadcast Technique. Rick also created his own comedy/joke writing service for radio and TV personalities with subscribers across the United States, Australia, and Barbados. Eventually, he sent samples of his workto Rodney Dangerfield, which started a long relationship until his passing in 2004. Rick has had material performed on the “Tonight Show” with Jay Leno and Johnny Carson, “Saturday Night Live,” “The Byron Allen Show,” and Rodney’s Grammy award winning comedy album “No Respect.”
Upon leaving soft rock station WMJC, Rick moved to Los Angeles to pursue other goals and interests. Once in L.A., he landed an on-air job with KUTE-102 FM and began to audition for (and book) television commercials including: Tecate Beer, McDonald’s, Goodyear Tires, ABC Fall Schedule promo, Grandy’s Restaurant, Bud Light, Chevrolet, as well as minor roles in movies and TV shows. Later, Rick worked at a satellite radio network heard across the country. In addition, Rick performed as a DJ/MC for over nine years at the first and oldest night-club in Burbank. Not for a nano-second did he feel California was home and returned to Cleveland.
Frank began his theatrical career at age 16 and has done over 75 productions. He attended Kent State University for Theatre and garnered his professional Equity card working and touring with Kenley Players. He has worked with Paul Lynde, Ed Ames, Karen Lynn Gorney (Saturday Night Fever), as well as many others touring shows. Frank moved to L.A. where he worked in several movies including “Borderline” with Charles Bronson. He moved back to Cleveland where he married and is raising four children with his wife Leesa. Frank filled the “entertainment need” by hosting Karaoke and DJing at many local bars and restaurants.
Since meeting back up in Cleveland, Rick and Frank have been together most weekends providing entertainment for weddings, parties, corporate events, and local bars. Teaming their knowledge of music and entertainment has proven very successful for many happy and appreciative clients. They look forward to hearing from you about your special event.
