The Vogues The Vogues created a sound – a fresh, original blend of vocal harmony that left an indelible mark in the world of popular music. Inducted into the Vocal Group Hall of Fame in 2001, the Vogues remain one of the top vocal groups on the oldies scene today. Even though their first hit “You’re the One” was released more than fifty years ago, the Vogues continue to attract sellout audiences at concerts and club appearances around the country. Their outstanding talent, stylish delivery and excellent choice of material, coupled with their vital, poised performance, makes this group one of the world’s top nostalgia acts. Featuring original lead vocalist, Bill Burkette, the group continues to dazzle audiences with their silky smooth vocals. Throughout the late 1960s and early 1970s, the Vogues appeared on The Ed Sullivan Show, The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson, The Red Skelton Show, The Mike Douglas Show, and made numerous appearances on Dick Clark’s American Bandstand.

Seth Cook Seth Cook is the complete talent package. He’s a singer, a songwriter, a musician, but most importantly, he’s an entertainer. Seth began his musical career at the young age of four, sharing the stage with his parents’ touring group. His first instrument was the drums, but Seth eventually moved to playing guitar. The sound of that guitar led Seth to not only learning other recording artists’ songs, but it soon became a passion for writing his own material. Seth already had a publishing deal offer in Nashville before he’d even moved to the city at the age of twenty. Seth has already logged countless hours on the stage. He says, “I love playing shows and making new friends. My first love is the stage. It’s in my blood, my DNA. It’s my home away from home.” Seth has played fairs, festivals, theaters, and clubs all over the country. One standout moment to Seth: “The moment Vince [Gill]
