Mari Tomita: Piano, Keyboards, and Vocals
Mari is a resident of the USA originally from Tokyo Japan. She is classically trained since the age of five. From 1994 to 1999 Mari studied music and English in the states. After returning to Tokyo she began honing her skills as a boogie-woogie blues piano player in a Blues Brothers tribute band. She joined a blues band starring Toshie Nagishi, a famous national Japanese actress. In 2005 she won a green card lottery, earned her green card and returned to the states to tour and entertain both nationally and abroad. Mari and Scott worked together on the Sea Princess touring the Caribbean for four months. Since then Mari has been working on sing along repertory. A mixture of classic and current pop/rock.

Scott Middleton: Drums and Vocals
Scott began playing at age eight with the Wabash Marching Baton and Drum corps. He continued to play off and on, became involved in the school's music program and jammed with friends. He played regularly in the Indianapolis area and earned a Bachelors Degree in percussion performance from The Indiana University School of Music in Bloomington, Indiana. There he performed and studied with world renowned artists and performers such as Kenny Aronoff, Donald Erb and Gerald Carlyss. He also did a six year stint playing drums and percussion for the 38th Infantry Division Army Band. He went out on the road originally in May of 2005 with Dana Jordan. Since then he's been a member of other band lineups like 4am and Crosstown. Scott and Mari did a four month Caribbean tour aboard the Sea Princess. Scott has been working continuously since in Nashville, on the road and most recently in a house band in Indianapolis while working on a repertory of classic pop/rock with Mari.

My name is Brent Gill. I'm the Booking Agent/Manager for Rusty Burns & BIG WAMPUM. I have a 3 piece Rock-a-Billy band that's "HOTTER Then a Two Dollar Pistol"!!! RODEO CLOWN DROPOUTS!!! Though you may want a more subdued Acoustic Duo, I simply want to present you with another thought in direction, regarding the Entertainment you decide to provide for this cruise.

Please review the EPK for RODEO CLOWN DROPOUTS at http://www.reverbnation.com/rodeoclowndropouts and see some of the BEST, HIGH Energy, Off the Chain, Psycho-a-Billy, Meat Eat-N, Party DAWG ENTERTAINMENT EVER!!! This band is Booked Solid, but would LOVE to take a break and go "Cruising with YOU"!!! I can rearrange this schedule to accomodate this Event, if you decide to go with us.

Contact Brent Gill regarding Booking RODEO CLOWN DROPOUTS. I can be reached at Gill Entertainment Productions. Just Google me.

As an alternative to RCD, and probably more of what you have in mind at this point, GRAYBOY & GUIDRY is a Guaranteed "WINNER"!!! Over 900 songs Performed by "One of the BEST Multi-Instrument Duos I've Ever Seen"!!! Martin and Dean Quality of Entertainment!!! They're like having Two Jimmy Buffets Together at the same time!!! Entertaining: That's an Understatement.

Go to http://www.kenguidry.com to see GRAYBOY & GUIDRY "LIVE" on Video.

I look forward to hearing from you!!!

Thank Again,

Gill Entertainment Productions/M-Peg Entertainment
