Born Edward Joseph Mahoney, Money first began a career in law enforcement in his native New York before becoming a musician. After moving to California, he changed his moniker to Eddie Money and signed with Columbia Records. He released his debut album, Eddie Money, in 1977, which included two Top 40 hits, “Baby Hold On” and “Two Tickets to Paradise.” Money released four more albums between 1978 and 1983, creating singles “Think I’m In Love,” “Take a Little Bit,” and “Shakin”. In 1986, Money had his biggest hit with “Take Me Home Tonight” featuring Ronnie Spector. The song reached #4 on the Billboard Hot 100 and the album went platinum.

Recently, Money has been the inspiration and star for “Two Tickets to Paradise – The Musical.” The original play is based on Money’s real life story, following him and his working class family as he pursues his dream of becoming a rock star.

British-born John Waite first came to attention as the lead singer and bassist of the band The Babys then launched his solo career in 1982 with the single “Change.” His second album, No Brakes, made him an international superstar due to the power ballad “Missing You,” which rocketed to #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart and Album Rock Tracks, as well as the Top 10 Adult Contemporary chart. No Brakes sold over a million and a half copies and also generated the Top 10 Mainstream Rock hit, “Tears.”

Waite formed the rock super group Bad English with former members of The Babys and Journey in 1988 and again attained #1 status with the Gold-certified ballad “When I See You Smile.” Bad English sold over two million copies of their debut album and released two more records before disbanding in 1992. Waite continued on his solo work and produced five albums including his latest, Downtown…Journey of a Heart.

In 2006, Waite re-released “Missing You” as a duet with Alison Krauss and reached the Top 40 again, this time on the Country charts.
