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.

Robert T is bringing is soul powerhouse trio to The Carlyle Club for the first time! This amazing and award winning trio consists of Robert T, Shawn Allen, and Sonja.

Robert T began performing at the age of 7 in backyard talent shows with singing groups madeup of neighborhood friends along with his older brother. Born in the “Show Me State” of St. Louis, Mo., he began singing and performing at a very early age. Soon, he and his brother began to play the guitar, piano/organ and drums. By 1966, the family moved to Akron, Ohio where they continued their musical journey with new friends. After performing in more singing groups, Robert T and his friends began to form their own band called The Bro-hams. Soon, he became the driving force for several other bands, one notably, Robert T & The Midnight Movers.

Robert T recorded, wrote and co-wrote many songs for many bands & groups in the past, such as “Harrowing Man” with Conga Jihad Band, “I Like Them All” for

The Howard St. Blues Band, and a song from the 911 attack on America, “Who Will Rule Iraq” followed by a campaigne song for President Barrack Obama, titled “Obama’s Got The Power” (Oama Is The Best), which sold well from the trunk of his car, and can be heard on YouTube.

As AMERICA’S NO. 1 JAMES BROWN TRIBUTE SHOW & REVUE, Robert T… The Real Soul Pleaser & his band, Papa’s New Bag, featuring his top notch horn section, The PNB Horns, are now sharing the stage with many R&B legends, such as Gene Chandler, Kim Weston, Russell Thompkins of The Stylistics, Chubby Checker, and many more…

“Three of us went to see “American Spirit” last evening at The Carlyle Club and I can assure you that you get the bang for your buck with this show. I looked for a review and could not find one, but it certainly deserves to be seen. The musicians and singers are fantastic and you could not ask for more if you enjoy Motown, Sinatra and Count Basie, People were dancing and the audience had a great time. You will be clapping your hands and on your feet at this enjoyable performance, Thank you for both an educational and enjoyable evening.” – Michael C.

“The American Spirit show tonight was incredible. Such amazing talent…! The songs took me back in time and the videos of Kennedy and MLK to go with the theme were great” – Leslie H.

“We thoroughly enjoyed dinner and the performance and agree that it is a “must see.” Frank Sinatra, along with Stevie Wonder and the young ladies were outstanding.” – Trina P.

“We thought that Motown and Frank Sinatra had really come to Alexandria! The Videos of history were also a solid reminder of how far the USA has come since the 60’s. The Veteran’s tribute and music were wonderful!” – C. Cox.
