Stacee Jaxx - In The Spotlight 

Rock of Ages
 Bad boy rocker Stacee Jaxx, lead singer and front man for the multi platinum power rock juggernaut Arsenal, exploded on to the rock scene in 1984. With Arsenal's hard driving rhythms combined with Stacee's on stage sensuality and off stage exploits they quickly became rock fan favorites and tabloid regulars. Rumor has it that Stacee's demand for musical perfection while recording their third and latest album "I Want Your Cans" ruffled more than a few feathers among his band mates and nearly caused a split. It is said that Stacee went so far as to set a recently recorded guitar track on fire right in front of the guitarist because he "couldn't feel it in his crotch".
Little to nothing is known about Stacee's history prior to the band's breakout in 1984. Some claim he studied classical music at Berkley, some say he is in the witness protection program, others say he is a former field agent for the CIA. All inquiries into his past have proven completely fruitless. Perhaps we will never know the real history of this mysterious man of music.
Come join Stacee and his Rock Band  in Rock of Ages Oct 28 - 30 ! Tickets available here !

Justice Charlier- In The Spotlight  

Rock of Ages

 Justice Charlier grew up in a sleepy town in upstate New York with her parents and two brothers. A stellar student in high school, she was set to become an accounting major at SUNY Albany when the call of the West Coast became too overwhelming for her and she tossed it all in to follow her real passion: rock music. Much to her parents' dismay, she left home and never looked back.

Upon arriving in L.A., Justice found nearly immediate success as a backup singer. Using the stage name Maxine Diamond, she sang vocals on the Donna Summer hit album "Bad Girls", as well as The Alan Parsons Project's "The Turn of a Friendly Card". (Incidentally, this is where she first encountered Dennis Dupree...but what happens at TAPP stays at TAPP.) On the brink of fame and fortune, Justice's world seemingly came crashing down when the Sleazy Producer screwed her over for the starring role in "Xanadu", casting Olivia Newton John instead. She has since thanked him many times over by providing drinks on the house for life at the Venus.

Penniless, Justice tapped into her childhood interpretive dance training and turned to employment of the evening. She began a long tenure at Sheldon's Shangri-La on Sunset, where she used both her dancing and her financial acumen to mentor the other girls and help Sheldon get out of the red. Once he split the scene, she took over the establishment and changed the name in favor of her favorite Roman goddess - and the Venus Gentlemen's Club was born. She'd like her parents to know she made it in business after all!

Playing the part of Justice is Melissa Runde, who lives in Windham with her husband and three children and is a monthly columnist for the Nashua Telegraph.

Come join Justice at The Venus Club in Rock of Ages Oct 28 - 30 ! Tickets available here !

Dennis Dupree - In the Spotlight 

Rock of Ages

Serving Up Dreams, on the Rocks

(Reprinted with permission courtesy of Rolling Stoned magazine)

Lying in the dark shadows of West Hollywood’s seedy Sunset Strip lies an unassuming club where stars are born, and dreams go to die. In its long history, The Bourbon Room has hosted an impressive roster of legendary musicians. Janis Joplin, The Doors, Cream, Velvet Underground, and Cream, among countless others have all rocked The Bourbon during their struggling formative years. Making it at The Bourbon meant critical exposure to A&R men from Capitol and Arista Records, whose after-hours booze and drug binges at The Bourbon are the stuff of legend.

Falling on hard times, The Bourbon was shuttered for many years before being purchased and reopened by music almost-was Dennis Dupree. Dupree, 47, is a long time vet of the L.A. music scene, with the battle scars to prove it. Despite a seemingly gifted talent for songwriting and storytelling, Dennis’ own music dreams fell far short. He and his band-mates, Dennis and The Penetrators, although proven to crank out insightful lyrics and soulful licks, only managed to reach #157 on the punk klezmer charts. A revolving door of drummers, perpetually overdosing bassist Mikki Quatro, and continual trips in and out of jail and rehab kept the talented group battling constant setbacks.

Dupree has since channeled his keen insights on reinventing The Bourbon, now a hotbed for L.A.’s burgeoning metal scene. Groups such as The Ramones, Van Halen, The Dead Kennedys, and all-girl rockers The Cunning Runts have all gotten a huge career boost from Dupree’s sage advice, exposure to industry giants, and the support of throngs of Bourbon regulars, themselves the seeming dregs of humanity.

In quiet moments of confidence, it becomes apparent that Dupree may be most proud of his influence and guidance on current supergroup Arsenal. Its wailing heartthrob lead singer Stacee Jaxx first entered The Bourbon in the late 70s. A down-on-his-luck kid on the streets, Dupree took him in as a barback, recognized the abundant unpolished talent in Jaxx, and mentored him to super-stardom. Despite Dupree’s invisible hand in their early song-writing, the whirlwind success of Arsenal and its seemingly endless road tour have put a distance between the relationship.

Dupree quietly rocks on, serving up hard liquor and hard rock nightly at The Bourbon, helping launch dreams into the heavens, and drowning sorrows in a smoky highball glass, while keeping his keen eye trained for the next big thing.

(Dennis Dupree will be brought to life in Nashua by Mike Colena on October 28th-30th, when ActorSingers presents Rock of Ages at Keefe Auditorium)

Come join Dennis at The Bourbon in Rock of Ages Oct 28 - 30 ! Tickets available here !

Regina Koontz - In The Spotlight  

Rock of Ages!

Regina has fought for many causes. Everything from the Farm Crisis in Iowa to trying to legalize pot right in her home state of California. Regina gives credit for her drive and determination to her parents, they were the first to encourage her love of music as well as her love of social change. 

Her favorite protest songs as a kid were: ‘For What It’s Worth’ (Buffalo Springfield) Paint It Black (The Rolling Stones, and Morning Dew (The Grateful Dead). Though since she went to college as she is a recent graduate from Berkley, her taste in music has shifted to such bands including Twisted Sister, Europe and Pat Benatar.

Regina is incredibly excited to start her new job as city planner in the great state she grew up in. She plans to use all the knowledge she has gained to make change within the system. Fight the man from the inside. She can often be heard telling friends “Power to the Proletariat” Which are words Regina likes to live by. She insists it’s a phrase everyone should live by and loves to explain that the working middle class is who needs to speak out and let their voices be heard. 

Regina reminds us that the fight is never over, though she does not tell us exactly what fight she is referring to. She just insists that everyone must fight for the cause they believe in! Power to the Proletariat! 

Her latest protest can be seen on the stage in Nashua, New Hampshire courtesy of Actorsingers. She will be fighting for her cause October 28th, 29th, and 30th. 

Playing the part of Regina is Angèlica Forcier Rosenthal who, when not on the stage can be found teaching Music and Theatre.

Help Regina and her cause at Rock of Ages Oct 28 - 30 ! Tickets available here !
