Steven Jon Kaplan has impressed audiences with his original music since childhood and recently completed his first CD, "Temptation", containing fifteen of his songs. Born and raised in Baltimore, Maryland, Steve entered the Peabody Preparatory Institute at age seven. He studied piano with Marjorie Liss and musical composition under the direction of the late David Hogan. Steve made his TV debut at the age of eleven and has performed as far away as Slovenia and as close as his adopted town of Kearny, New Jersey.
   In a fusion of life and art, Steve relates his experiences with love through the years in an engaging one-man show of humorous, nostalgic recollections intertwined with his songs.

Mary Anne Nichols has won over audiences from Canada to Grand Cayman Island with her views of life over 50. "The National Poster Girl for Menopause" pokes fun at mid-life and says things your mother would love to say. She started a full-time comedy career after retiring from the New York State Court System and raising four children. She's been called ribald, coy and brutally honest as she tackles the changes of life.
   From Seneca Falls, NY, Mary Anne is addicted, and comedy is her panacea of choice. Even the casual listener is quickly convinced that at some point during her formative years, she took a long look at the world around her and decided that humor was a very satisfactory way of dealing with the bumps and thumps of reality.
