In the anthology of American entertainment, performers possess either the charisma or family lineage to carry their names to the top of the billboards. But a rare few manage to capture both. Jimmy G is no stranger to the spotlight, coming from a family rich with entertainment royalty. His cousin, Joe E. Lewis was a premier night club entertainer from the 1920s-1960s and palled around with notables such as Frank Sinatra and Jerry Lewis. As a teenager, Jimmy G would often join his family at era hot spots like The Copacabana and The Tropadero. Today, Jimmy G continues the tradition as a popular performer both on-stage and on-screen.
Jimmy G owes much of his love for the entertainment industry to his early cabaret inﬂuences. His reverence of Frank Sinatra, to whom he often performs tributes, spawned from the close relationship between Sinatra and Jimmy Gʼs cousin, Joe E. Lewis. Sinatraʼs movie “Jokerʼs Wild” was even inspired by Lewisʼs life. Lewis was a comedic pioneer, blazing the transition from vaudeville-style shows to the one-on-one comedy we now know as stand-up. He holds records for the most consecutive performances at The Tropadero in California, at 53 weeks, as well as a record-breaking streak at The Copacabana.
In the 70ʼs an 80ʼs, Jimmy G took to the screen, both big and small. He appeared in several popular soap operas, including “As The World Turns”, “General Hospital” and “The Young and the Restless”. He later followed in his cousinʼs footsteps, honing his humor on the sitcoms “Grandpa Goes To Washington” and “Starsky and Hutch”. A true entertainer, Jimmy G has also ran the gamut on-stage, bringing grace and experience to diverse roles in “Cat On a Hot Tin Roof”, “Butterﬂies Are Free”, “Grease”, and “Ethan Frome”.
Jimmy Gʼs stage and family experiences provided an excellent forum for his musical talents to develop. His smooth, cabaret singing style and comedic interjections hearken back to yesteryear. And his magnetic charisma has charmed audiences from coast to coast, creating a character as memorable as the songs he covers. He has completed several cover CDs, including the most recent, “Romance”. “Romance”also features Jimmy Gʼs ﬁrst original track “Weʼre Lovers Most of All”. He is currently in the studio working on his fourth album “Itʼs Magic.”
Since erupting onto the scene in 2012, rapper/singer Sweet Lu has been en fuego, burning up the beaches of Jacksonville. This larger-than-life artist spent six years as a backup vocalist before finally deciding to go solo. And now that he has, heʼs proving to be an unstoppable force.
Caracas-born Lu was on the verge of dropping out of high school when he was persuaded to audition for the school chorale. The music beckoned, and at state competition senior year, Sweet Lu answered with a resounding voice. His moving performance of the operatic Caro Mio Bien garnered him multiple college scholarship offers, including Florida State College Jacksonville, where he ultimately connected with one of his “Holiday” producers.
Since then, Sweet Lu has recorded and performed live with Jake Miller and Afroman, as well as several local groups including Fusebox Funk, Sixteenth, Florida Razed and Starnation Productions. He has also been asked to open for Bubba Sparxx (March 30, 2013), Afroman at 420 Fest (April 19, 2013) and Outkast’s Big Boi with Killer Mike (June 7, 20130. Behind the scenes, he has studied recording and engineering under industry powerhouse M. Geezy, producer for T-Pain and Young Cash.
Topping 2,200 YouTube hits in only ten days, itʼs apparent that Sweet Luʼs debut single, “Holiday”, has become an instant success with fans, both domestic and international. Irreverent and carefree, it embodies the individualistic lifestyle embraced by this Vans-wearing artist-on-the-rise. Sweet Lu artfully balances edgy lyrics and hip-hop beats with pop influence, resulting in an uncommon sound that can only be described as a “musical melting pot”.
Sweet Lu was recognized in 2012 by Void Magazine as one of their Local Lookouts for his trailblazing growth and his music has been secured by the NFL’s Atlanta Falcons for promotional purposes. He has been featured in EU, and Folio Weekly dubbed his December EP release show a “reason to leave the house this week”. “Holiday” was even chosen for the soundtrack of the Jacksonville-filmed movie “The Homeboys”. Sweet Lu continues to deliver his own unique blend of street and substance. You can find more on Sweet Lu at SweetLuMuzik on Facebook, Twitter and YouTube.
