The Allstar band members are Scott Shafer Drums, Jamie Hunting Bass, Harry Nakano and Clayton Apilando Guitars, Ethan Capone Piano/Keyboards, Paul Stanley’s Power House Horns with Paul Stanley Saxophone and Ray Williams Trumpet will add that extra "Memphis Style Soulful Push," ala Otis Redding.

Full bar and fabulous people help to complete the offerings.

Digable Planets    (0 Votes)
Digable Planets are an American alternative hip hop trio based in Brooklyn, New York, composed of Ishmael “Butterfly” Butler, Mary Ann “Ladybug Mecca” Vieira and Craig “Doodlebug” Irving.

Butler and Irving met in Philadelphia in the late 1980s; Vieira and Irving had been a couple while attending Howard University. Originally from Seattle, Butler was interning at Sleeping Bag Records in New York and would visit his grandmother in Philadelphia where Irving was living and rapping with an outfit called the Dread Poets Society (later known as the 7 OD’s). The initial demos recorded under the name Digable Planets featured only Butler. After a brief stint with two other members, Butler began collaborating with Irving and Vieira in 1989.

The group signed to Pendulum Records in 1992 and all three band members moved to New York, where Butler and Irving became roommates. Their debut album "Reachin’ (A New Refutation of Time and Space)" was released in 1993 and certified gold by the RIAA. The album’s lead single, “Rebirth of Slick (Cool Like Dat)” became a crossover hit, peaking at #15 on Billboard magazine’s singles chart, earning gold certification by the RIAA and winning Best Rap Performance by a Duo or Group.

After many short-lived reunions, it was announced in October 2015 that the trio would again reunite.
