One of R&B’s most popular and talented music groups, The Whispers, will perform at City National Grove of Anaheim on Friday, November 21.

With over a four-decade career including seven gold albums and two platinum albums, as well as 12 Top Twenty Singles, The Whispers were also inducted into the Vocal Group Hall of Fame in 2003, and received the 2005 Regional Grammys Governors Award for all of their accomplishments. The Whispers have proven their staying power, and continue to gain more popularity as the latest generation has grown up listening and loving their music. Yesterday, today, and tomorrow, describes how long The Whispers’ music will live on in the hearts of Americans. Known for their smooth soulful ballads throughout the 60’s, 70’s, 80’s, 90’s and the new millennium, The Whispers remain one of the premier R&B groups to ever grace the stage. Their musical success can be attributed to a careful balance of R&B, disco, jazz, and pop to the delight of millions of fans.

One of R&B music’s most beloved and consistently popular vocal groups, The Whispers, began their legendary and timeless career in 1963, producing a string of hits over the last four decades such as “And the Beat Goes On,” “Rock Steady,” “A Song For Donny,” and “Lady.” They emerged as the leading romantic singers of their generation, racking up one gold album after another and charting numerous R&B hits. They are arguably the most celebrated R&B balladeers of their generation and still make women swoon with their silky yet forceful tenors of twins Walter and Scotty. In the new millennium the group still performs around the world to thousands of loyal fans.

Their music has been heard on movie sound tracks such as “Waiting to Exhale,” “Madea’s Family Reunion,” and “Diary of a Mad Black Woman.” They sang the title track on Jay Leno’s movie soundtrack “Collision Course”. The group has not made any personnel changes and still consists of Walter Scott, Wallace Scott, Nicholas Caldwell, and Leaveil Degree. They are one of only a few “old school” groups that can boast of having over 40 years in the industry with a worldwide fan base, maintaining their vocal dominance and original members.

Hot off the heels of their 17th studio album, ‘Redeemer of Souls’, metal icons Judas Priest will rock City National Civic of San Jose on November 16. Steel Panther will be “special guests” for the show.

Already, ‘Redeemer of Souls’ is creating a deafening pre­release buzz, largely due to overwhelmingly positive reviews:

“The word ‘epic’ is thrown around too often in the world of music, but Judas Priest’s new album ‘Redeemer of Souls’ is, in fact, truly epic. From Rob Halford’s powerful vocals to Glenn Tipton and Richie Faulkner’s monster riffs and soaring guitar solos, ‘Redeemer of Souls’ takes listeners on a fantastical metal journey from beginning to end.” ­­Loudwire

“Galloping riffs, dueling solos and Rob Halford’s battle shrieks make it classic Priest at its metal core.” ­­Rolling Stone Magazine [review of "Redeemer of Souls" single]

“The gods of metal return with all cylinders firing on ‘Redeemer of Souls,’ a juggernaut of an album that features raw, unleashed power as only the mighty Priest can deliver. Valhalla, they are coming — and coming HARD.” ­­Mike Mettler, Sound & Vision Magazine

Comprised of Rob Halford (vocals), Glenn Tipton (guitar), Richie Faulkner (guitar), Ian Hill (bass), and Scott Travis (drums), Judas Priest is responsible for some of heavy metal’s all­time classic songs (“Living After Midnight,” “Breaking the Law,” “You’ve Got Another Thing Coming,” etc.) and albums (‘British Steel,’ ‘Screaming for Vengeance,’ ‘Painkiller,’ etc.).

“MADtv” and internet sensation Anjelah Johnson has added a third date at City National Grove of Anaheim on Friday, November 14 at 10:30 PM in addition to her first Friday, November 14 and Saturday, November 15 show.

In the beginning of her career Johnson was a professional cheerleader for the Oakland Raiders. As an Oakland Raiderette, she was named Rookie of the Year and even performed in Super Bowl XXXVII. After that year she decided to move to Los Angeles to pursue her dream of acting.

She became an internet sensation with her viral video “Nail Salon” which led to many stand up and performance opportunities. That same year she joined the cast of “MADtv” as a series regular, which spawned another viral hit “Bon Qui Qui.” This original character, a disgruntled fast food employee with no filter, has been enjoyed, viewed and replicated by over fifty-five million people worldwide. Recently Anjelah recorded and released a full length rap song and music video as Bon Qui Qui with more tracks in the works. The song and the video are currently available on iTunes.

In June 2009, Anjelah recorded a one-hour special for Comedy Central and Warner Brothers Records.

In 2010, Johnson starred in the movie Our Family Wedding, and was also seen as a live action character in the film Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Squeakquel alongside Jason Lee and the voices of Justin Long, Anna Faris and Amy Poehler. Anjelah then leant her voice for the animated film Marmaduke, along with Emma Stone, Owen Wilson and Jeremy Piven.

Anjelah currently resides in Los Angeles with her husband. Anjelah continues to act and tour the country with her sold out comedy shows.
