Introducing a brand-new songwriting and performance ensemble: the Tempting Fate Revue. The group’s aims are threefold: to provide a showcase for unsigned, emerging singers; to raise money for charity; and above all, to develop new original music.
The group includes several accomplished musicians (such as Grammy winner Eguie Castrillo on percussion and John Lennon Songwriting Contest award winner Leo Mellace on guitar). Two are also Berklee professors (Castrillo and drummer Dave DiCenso). Five songs from their debut album, Tempting Fate, have won honorable mentions in the 2004 Billboard Song Contest. With five songwriters in all, the music spans the genres of Rock, R&B, and Latin.
