Our lead male singer, Neal Sharpe, is a true living legend! Neal has toured the world performing with groups such as Archie Bell & the Drells, The Whispers, The Coasters, Mark Farner of Grand Funk Railroad, The Chi-Lites, Al Green, War, and many other music legends. Neal rates a perfect "10" on the entertainment scale, and once you hear his soulful voice you will be hooked! Neal sings everything from Classic Oldies, Do-Wop, Motown, Soul, Funk, Disco, Classic Rock, and even some George Strait hits!
Kathy Nicklebur is our lead female vocalist and brings style and class to the stage. Kathy has been a "closet Rock Star" her whole life, from her humble beginnings singing hits from the Go-Gos and Madonna into her hairbrush in the bathroom. She was able to utilize these skills upon entering college, where she sang in a number of different bands. As long as she is having a good time, you will too!
Bryan Daniel is the animal behind the drum kit! Bryan has performed with many bands and provides The GTOs with his own style of Beach Boys vocals. A crowd favorite is when Bryan leaves the drum kit and sings "I'm A Believer" by the Monkees out in the audience! Bryan has his own brand of comedy whether you catch him performing on a cruise ship or at a local event; this is one drummer you will never forget!
Miles Casad is an all around talented man playing lead guitar and bass guitar and pays tribute to The Beatles, Free, Ronny & the Daytonas, Wild Cherry, Van Morrison and other legends through song. Miles has also performed with many bands and adds much to The GTOs. Miles loves to get out on the dance floor to be loud and proud. Known for his custom made Zoot Suits and Fedoras, Miles makes a fashion statement every where he goes! His clothes are not the only thing crowds remember, his winning smile and "never met a stranger" personality make him a crowd favorite!
The 5th member of The GTOs is a guy with more wigs than Dolly Parton, more sunglasses than Elton John, and more sequined jackets than Liberace! Keith Wallace arranges the music, sings songs from Jimmy Buffett, The Big Bopper, Buddy Holly, Danny & the Juniors; provides comedy relief and drives the band's bus, a true wing nut!
