On Behalf of the Carlyle Club: The Music Factory
Mar 30 @ 8:00 pm

Once in a long while a live musical act comes along that captures the attention of the music industry with significant fervor. “The Music Factory” has accomplished this feat and is now poised to completely re-define the “musical duo”. Comprised of two unique musical artists, “The Music Factory” is now recognized as the “most powerful and astounding musical duo in America” bringing together award winning film and television composer Rick Silanskas and internationally acclaimed vocalist Josh Leggett. Emanating from Central Florida, the musical union of Rick and Josh is the culmination of a nearly 25 year relationship.
Rick Silanskas and his career has spanned the globe including his compositions for film and television, award winning music for Walt Disney Creative Entertainment, award winning “American Freedom Suite” symphony for President Bush following 9/11 and presentation of his music for The Royal Family at Buckingham Palace. Josh Leggett was recently honored to perform with Broadway’s Kristin Chenowith, American Idol’s Katherine McPhee and for The Pope in a special presentation at The Vatican.
“The Music Factory” has developed a singularly unique production featuring the proprietary designed keyboard system created by Rick Silanskas. Without the use of recordings or tracks, Rick creates everything from a clean Martin 12 String Guitar to a stadium rock band or a full 70 piece orchestra live on stage. And with the astounding vocals of Josh Leggett, the sound is un-like anything we have seen before coming from two musical artists. Their unique and powerful take on artists such as BILLY JOEL, STING, SIMON AND GARFUNKEL, AEROSMITH, BRYAN ADAMS, JOHN LEGEND, MICHAEL BUBLE, QUEEN, TOTO, ANDREA BOCELLI, THE EAGLES, EMERSON LAKE & PALMER, CHICAGO, KANSAS, POCO, STEVIE WONDER, TOM PETTY, TRANS SIBERIAN ORCHESTRA, BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN, JACKSON BROWNE, VAN HALEN, EUROPE, DISNEY MAGIC and many more, along with a surprisingly highly entertaining presentation, raises the bar and defines a new era for musical duos. Recent sold out performances including The Gleason Center for The Performing Arts and The Rosen Theatre, have placed “The Music Factory” in a category of their own as they know prepare for expanded venue and concert performances and the development of a national television special.
