Navy Entertainment is bringing the entertainment to wherever you are!
Today's Surprise Guest is:
Thomas Ian Nicholas Band
You might recognize Thomas Ian Nicholas from when he portrayed Kevin in “American Pie,” the strong-armed Henry Rowengartner in “Rookie of the Year,” or from one of his many other movies. But this actor, producer, director, and writer also is a singer and musician, and frontman for the “Thomas Nicholas Band.” With six albums under their belt (and a seventh on the way), TNB has performed around the world at everything from large festivals and private fundraisers, as well as for service members overseas as part of a Navy Entertainment Program tour.
Born in Charleston, S.C., Edwin McCain is a singer-songwriter and musician whose songs “I’ll Be” (1998) and “I Could Not Ask for More” (1999) were radio top-40 hits in the U.S. Five of his 11 albums reached the Billboard 200.
A resident of Columbus, Ohio, comedian and magician Michael Kent gives the ancient art of magic a facelift with an irreverent and often satirical comedic spin. Kent spent his younger years learning magic to make friends and meet girls. Since graduating from The Ohio State University and studying at the world-famous Second City comedy theater in Chicago, he has performed for audiences all over the world, including U.S. military service members in 13 different countries.
Kelly Bell Band
Voted the “Best Blues Band” in the Mid-Atlantic Region for 12 years in a row, Baltimore’s Kelly Bell Band started as a backup band for rock and roll pioneer Bo Diddley. The KBB released their debut album, “Phat Blues Music,” in 1998. An active supporter of the U.S. military, The KBB regularly performs for service members overseas.
Tommy Stanley, a native of Kirbyville, Texas, served as a Machinist Mate Fire Controlman on USS Kitty Hawk (CV 63) and was stationed in Yokosuka, Japan. His selection in 2008 as one of eight finalists on NBC's "Nashville Star," as announced by host Billy Ray Cyrus, started his official Navy career as a musician. He later performed at several NEX MWR Customer Appreciation Events in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, and Guam.
