She loves live music and the bands with whom she works and is extremely dedicated to the South Florida music scene. She also does graphic design work, promotions and marketing, event planning, band development, and volunteers her time to several non-profit organizations.  She's one busy lady and she wouldn't have it any other way!

Judy was "a chorus geek," two-term president of SPHS drama club, founder of an award-winning thespian troupe, a member of Meistersingers and Performing Arts, and a member of Plantation Players Theater Company.  In college, she was a writer and performer in an improv comedy group called "The Insomniac Players," she hosted open mic nights, and in the early 90's, she produced and hosted a comedy series for Discovery Cruise Line.

On a personal note, Judy has been married to Tom since November of 1991 and is the proud Mother of two incredible young men; Sean graduated from the University of South Florida with a degree in International Finance, and Devin graduated from the University of Florida with a degree in computer programming. 

Judy is a member of ASCAP.  One of her biggest thrills was having a song licensed by DirecTV for a series called "Full Circle." Click here to listen to "Until You Kissed Me Like That"

James Robinette

Shaker of Hands, Kisser of Babies.

James "Jimi" Robinette has been an entertainer since he was a teenager.  He picked up the drums when he was just a kid and later switched to singing. Formerly a Retrospect Records signed recording artist who toured nationally, Jimi founded and fronts one of South Florida's longest-running cover bands "Riverdown," as well two incredibly popular tribute bands "Southern Blood" and "Supernaut." He's a powerhouse vocalist and successful band leader who understands the "business side" of being in a band.

Having spent years in sales, Jimi combines his corporate knowledge of sales, marketing and customer care with his personal knowledge of the music industry. Jimi has a strong work ethic and believes in servicing accounts in person rather than chatting on the phone - which explains why this man is always on the run. His dedication and personal service is second to none.
