Traveling The World With Music With Twice As Nice’s Shelly Dartez And Westley Stevens
I hope all of you are relaxing, barbecuing, and having a pool party. I can’t have a pool party. We don’t have a pool. I have a redneck husband who likes to go out in the yard and take all the weeds out.
What are you talking about? You wanted a pool. I’m preparing for a pool. I had to mow it.
I’m going to hold you to that. You’re all witnesses. I’m getting a pool.
“Ladies and gentlemen, you’ve seen him in the backyard dragging a 50-foot bench, mowing the yard, and preparing for his wife’s brand-new pool coming. He’s here. He’s dirty. He’s unshaved, but it didn’t matter. He’s in Studio 53 drinking his lose weight. Give it up for, Mark Yuzuik.” That was a great intro. Who did that intro? Was that one of the celebrities? I’m over celebrity friends. Ty Herndon or if you’re into Lady Gaga.
We did better than that because they’re here and we’re going to barbecue and hang out afterward.
Our friends who are here visiting.
Some friends came over to see us. I mowed the grass. If you drink the tea, you’ll be like me. If you drink two, you will go number two. If you drink three, you will be as thin as can be. Text the word TEA to 55678 and you too can be thin like us. Somebody has been asking us, “Are you joking around the lose weight tea?” No, we aren’t joking.
Mark did not have coffee. I don’t know what he’s on. We have some special guests.
People are asking us about the tea if it’s a joke or not.
It really is a lose weight tea.
Tell them how they can find out about it.
If you do text the word TEA to 55678, you can get information on it.
When I’m doing my show, you speak a lot faster. Ladies and gentlemen, for those who like to lose weight on the lose weight tea, please text the word TEA to 55678. We’ve got some cool friends.
We’ve met some amazing people on our travels. Lucky for us, some of them live in Vegas. The two people that are going to be our guest, they live here in Vegas. We met them on a cruise ship. We were trying to remember when we met them on a cruise ship and how long ago it’s been. I can’t remember how long it’s been. We are going to introduce our guests. We have Shelly and Westley.
Before we bring them on, let me explain who they are.
Why don’t we let them tell who they are?
To know who they are and what they’ve accomplished, it’s amazing. They’re at every one of our Total Transformation as our entertainment when they’re in town. A lot of times we will schedule an event when they’re in town. They’re on tour. You may have heard of The Stylistics. You may have heard of Lionel Richie. He worked with Lionel.
He is going to tell us some amazing story. You guys get to hear from them, other amazing stories on their world travels.
Can I tell them what songs they wrote?
Betcha by Golly Wow. My favorite, “You make me feel brand new. God bless me and you.” They’re my favorite songs, “Being around the world.” Me and Mrs. Jones, Brick House, this is the man and the woman. I don’t know why they’re friends of ours, it’s probably because of me. I’m sure of it.
We have our friends, Twice As Nice, Shelly and Westley, here with us. We are going to bring them on.
I am reading your comments and they are funny. I want to know what’s in that tea too.
They won’t let me drink coffee. If I get coffee, I get wired up.
I can’t imagine.
Didn’t you say you did the grass?
He did the grass, but not that kind of grass. He meant the grass outside.
Probably not that grass.
We’ve got two acres. Weeds are growing up everywhere. We got a guy to come over here and he goes, “I can do for it $1,200.” Let me go to Home Depot and have a meeting with the guy I called, “Will you sell me a chain link fence for $100?” I tied that at the back of my truck. I look like a little redneck. The weeds came down fast and then you can imagine. We’ve got more rabbits. It’s all leveled out.
There were quails too in the backyard.Sometimes, the problem in our business is that people are going to have something to say, be it negative or positive. Click To Tweet
You have amazing talent, Mark.
I’m starting a landscaping business. As long as you have weeds and I could drive my truck around the backyard and kill the weeds, I like to do it that way.
I can’t believe how many views he’s had on it since I posted it. It’s insane.
You’re ready for your pool.
That’s what he said.
I said it keeps us cool.
He was prepping for my pool. We’re going to have a pool party.
I remember buying a pool one time.
You might have to dig that pool, Mark.
He tried to do the redneck pool one time.
What we did is we tricked him to come over here. We said, “We need your help. Can you come?”
We’re hungry. Telling him we’re doing it so we’re ready to get some barbecue.
I offered them barbecue so they can come and hang out with us.
A cooking show will be part two.
You’ve been gone a lot. You’re traveling the world a lot.
We do a lot of traveling. We were gone for almost a year. We started in Singapore. We moved throughout Malaysia, Thailand, and Vietnam. We ended up, believe it or not, in Australia and New Zealand. Mark, you’re talking about change. Asia and Australia, there’s a drastic difference. We went from singing, maybe 50%, our show being Chinese to Indian to all other great stands and the things that we love to play as well. It was a challenge for us. We like challenges. It’s good.
Once we got to New Zealand, everybody was into R&B, Motown, and soul. We were like, “Really?” It was amazing. We got to mix it up and do everything. Even your song, Mark, being around the world. I got you.
They go, “Shelly, happy birthday.”
Every time we go to a restaurant, Mark always tells the waiter it’s my birthday.
I don’t say, “It’s your birthday.” We’re celebrating your birthday.
Every day. I love it.
The cakes come out. We’re on a diet, so no cake.
How long have we known you? Has it been years?
Since we met? I don’t know.
I wish that we figured that out.
We can’t figure out what ship it was. When we met, it was love at first sight. I don’t even remember where. I know we bonded, me and Yolanda, over lemon drop martinis and that was it.
If you give Shelly lemon drop martinis, she has stories that will have you rolling.
Meeting you and even Elvy Rose, you think of some of the people we’ve met, John Anthony. We’ve stayed in close contact and we live here. We hardly ever see each other. We almost ran into you in Singapore.
We missed each other by about a week.
Our friend, Mark Anthony, he was in Singapore and we were Singapore. He lives in the US.
It is a small world, especially in our business. We take the world in our hands. We give ourselves to the world. It’s a 360, it comes back to us as well.
I hope that we had more compliments at our live events. When you two show up, the show, the connection, you talk about putting some glue into some people and making things happen. You do that every time. It was sad, we missed you one time.
It’s such an uplifting event. Every time we go, the people are wonderful. The energy is always great, which is a positive relief feeling uplifted and that’s what it’s all about. We happen to be a part of it. We look forward to the next one. We’re going to stay home until you do your next event.
You started singing at an early age. Didn’t you, West? They called you Butch.
Now everybody knows. My cousin was an opera singer. When I was a baby, 3, 4 years old, I would always mimic her. I would get on the piano after she’s finished. I would mimic every song that I heard her do. She realized, “You’re singing the song that I sang.” I was lucky to get a great teacher from the New York Conservatory when I was five years old. I started to study classical and jazz. I move into it quickly to be here. The Stylistics is one of my first groups as my theme occurred. I rehearsed around the corner from my home. They would walk past my house and they would hear me rehearsing. He walks and knocks on my door and said, “Who is this? He’s got to join my band.”
I’ve never heard this story.
I was raised by my grandmother. She says, “He’s only in the class choir in the church. I don’t want him doing that kind of thing.” I knew that they rehearsed around the corner because I heard them all the time. One day, I went and knocked at their door. I said, “You’ve been looking for me?” They said, “Come on in.” The rest is history.
You and Michael Jackson used to hang out for a while.
Mike was a comedian. A lot of people pick up on that. Mike’s thing is always to bring love and joy. Me and Mike hang out a lot. We used to tour James Brown. I’ll never forget the first time he took me to Apollo Theater, the top of the theater because James didn’t allow anybody in his warm-up rehearsals. We would sit at the top of the theater and Mike was laughing and laughing. I said, “The band is warming up. What’s funny?” I found out quickly what James always did. That’s what Mike was laughing at. He wanted to show me that James was so tough that he would knock these guys out. The funny thing is ten more guys would show up twenty minutes later. He says he does this all the time. Every show I do with him, he fires out the band and another band shows up. I was wondering why he was laughing. Mike is a great guy. There’s a song that we’re going to start doing called Heal the World. It’s appropriate for him to do that song under the circumstances that we were all going through.
Did you work with Ray Charles too?
I spent time around Ray. I lived in Singapore for a while. Ray would come, I live at the Hyatt Regency Hotel. It’s called Hyatt Regency back in the late ‘70s. Ray would play there at least once a year. When he came in, we all get together and party together. Ray was quite attractive. He and Stevie are almost identical in some ways. They’re always joking, it’s because their blind, they always want to drive the car. They’re like, “Come on, I’ll take you out of here.” We had jam sessions all the time. Ray had to have his piano on the suite. We have two pianos so we’d all sit together and jam and the people would all sing together. It was always a party. I don’t know how I’m still here to tell you the truth.
I always remember when I was younger, I was running around in New Jersey. My whole thing was, “All I need is enough money to buy a piano and be like Ray Charles. A house and a car, that’s all I need for the rest of my life.” I remember seeing Elvis three times. I used to fantasize about being a singer. You’ve heard me sing. Me and Shelly would do a duet and they’ll do me and out of there. I’ve always had such respect. I always wanted to meet Ray Charles and Michael Jackson. It was one of my goals. I never had the opportunity.
It was an experience. We were quite close when we were younger. As far as Ray, I would see him a couple of times, maybe two in a year. As you know, it was our schedule and sometimes we’d cross paths. Sometimes we’d be on the same show. Every time, he was the same sweet guy. He always had his loving energy like Mike. Everybody says things. The problem in our business sometimes is people are going to have something to say, be it negative or positive. The negative, we overlook it because it’s all about the love and the music and we deliver it to the world to make people happy.
You’re talking about love. How long have you been together? How did you meet her? What a lucky twist that was. All the songs you wrote aren’t nearly as golden as that woman you’ve got next to you.
That’s the reason I’m still here.
How did you meet?
If I’m not mistaken, we met way back in 1984. At that time, I was a flight attendant at Pan Am.
Before that. Tell the story way back.
I met you fleetingly. You’re talking about back in the ‘70s.
I didn’t like him much in the ‘70s. In the ‘70s, it was the Disco Queen era and that was my thing. He was this The Stylistics. Our paths crossed in Philly. I used to work at a club called The Bunny Club.
Did you have a Playboy Bunny Club?
I went to the Playboy Bunny Club in New York as well. My third Bunny Club was in Philly. It was an invitation to Bunny Club. I came ready for the real Bunnies. I met him there. I don’t even remember but he remembers it because he had such an entourage of hangers and people who were sleazy and creepy.
Not all of them.
Yes, they were. “Here are your drinks. I’m out.” That first meeting was a disaster.
Some of them were hanging on.
All of them were. Later in life, after I stopped being the Disco Queen, I was doing Broadway musicals. I was tired of seeing Philadelphia and New York and I said, “Now is the time. I want to see the world. How can I see the world for free? I’ll be a flight attendant.” I became a flight attendant with Pan Am. I’m dating myself because we all know Pan Am doesn’t exist anymore. We were number one and a classy airline. I loved it.
I loved the outfit, personally. It’s my preference.
You love all of my outfits.
Look at her, she’s beautiful. I can’t wait to come to your 50th birthday party.
I know you love him that much.
I do. It was love at first sight. What can I say? Later on, we met in the ‘80s. At that time, I was still with Pan Am. He had left all the group he was with, The Stylistics, The Commodores because he was young when he started and he signed over a lot of things that maybe he shouldn’t have. That’s a whole other episode. He decided to go out on his own. He liked music but he hated the music business. I met him again in the ‘80s. He was performing all by himself in a beautiful restaurant in Philadelphia. My girlfriend took me there for dinner for my real birthday. He knew my girlfriend. On his break, he came over and started talking to us.Our thing is to give positive energy, spread love, and bring people together to uplift them. Click To Tweet
Her girlfriend was after me.
Every girl wants you. Every guy wants to be like you.
I’m getting tired.
We got to talk about our musical background and everything. He invited me up to the piano to sing a song with him and I did. People thought we were a real duo. They were coming up to us and hiring us for gigs. I’m like, “I don’t do this for a living. I’m a flight attendant. If I change my mind, I’ll call you back.” I went back to the airlines and then we started dating around that time. What happened was, I played hooky from work. I decided to take off from work for one trip.
The Pan Am flight, the one that went down in Lockerbie.
I was supposed to be on that flight.
We stayed together. I convinced her not to go.
He’s going to take credit for that too.
He’s an angel.
He’s like, “I saved your life so you’ve got to marry me.” That’s how it went down. After that, the rest is history. We got married. We started our musical career together. After that, I said, “No more flying the friendly skies. They’re not that friendly anymore.” That’s how we got started. We started performing in Philadelphia and then slowly traveling in the United States. We were performing in Miami. Someone hired us in Miami. They hired us for a cruise ship, Norwegian Cruise Line. It started in 2001. After that, the rest is history. That’s where we met.
It was on the Jewel.
It was the Jewel Norwegian.
We did the Mexican one. I have pictures of that, standing out on the deck in Mexico.
I said, “These people are cool.”
You guys were on a nine-month contract. We were there for one week. I can remember Shelly saying, “I’m counting the days like a hooker in jail.” You couldn’t wait to go home.
I was marking the calendar.
Every day we’d see you and you would say, “I crossed out another day.”
There’s a big calendar in our cabin.
How long have you been married?
We’ve been together for years.
It is such a joy to travel with you guys. If you were on stage, West and I would have signals. If you buy a drink at the regular bar, it’s $7.25. We’d go to the crew bar and get the same exact drink for $1.
She’s like, “Let Mark do his thing.”
For everybody reading, when you work on a cruise ship, you have a crew bar. Drinks are a lot cheaper than when you go to the regular bars. When Westley and Shelly would be performing, we will usually be in the audience watching. Of course, Mark and Westley like to have drinks afterward. They had hand signals. He would let us know when he was almost done so he could take a run down to the crew bar and buy their drinks.
His timing was impeccable.
Yolanda learned how to do it. They are events that we would perform and she would give me the eye about ten minutes before the set was over. She would have lemon drop martinis. At the next set, she’d be like, “Woo-hoo.”
Shelly would get to talking before each song and then Westley would be sitting there and going, “Next song.” I will get another martini.
Tell us the songs that you wrote that people would recognize.
I’ve written and produced a lot of songs. As a youngster and a teenager, I worked with a company out of Philadelphia called MFSB The Sound Of Philadelphia. TSOP as the initials stands. We have groups like The O’Jays, The Stylistics, of course, my group. My sister sang a few songs with us but they were with another company as well. The Jacksons came over to us for a while too. Mike said to me, “I told you we would get together.” I joined them and worked that out to come over Philly International. Philly International was the Motown of the ‘70s. If you look up anything under The Sound Of Philadelphia, you’re going to find that I had too many songs that I have to go through to tell you that. If you go through the Philadelphia roster, you’re going to know. I promise you.
Set aside the friendship, the entertainment that you two bring to everybody every time is always way above and beyond what anybody can expect. It’s entertainment. It’s classy. I have never met a couple that is entertaining, classy, and enjoyable to sit down and watch.
Our thing is to give positive energy, to spread love, to bring people together as a way to uplift them. That’s why we’re friends because we are the same. We’re all about uplifting people. That’s what music should do. That’s how people live in their life.
We should go on a cruise one day, all of us, about the behind-the-scenes on the cruise ship for entertainers. I’m sure we can tell some good stories.
I’m streaming on Facebook and they’ve got this new thing where people hack it while you’re live. The guy that’s hacking uses some vulgar stuff.
That seems strange. There are people like that. Guess what? We love you too, hacker. “Learn how to hack yourself,” that’s what we say.
When was the last time you guys were at our seminar?
We did one close at home. Didn’t we do one at the Suncoast? It was the last one we did before we left.
People are still talking about you.
They can check out your website, TwiceAsNiceEntertainment.com.
This is what we want to make clear to people, our whole thing is to be chameleons. Depending on where we are and who we’re playing to is how our style changes. We have people talk about genres of music. We go through the gamut. There is no genre that we don’t do, from classical to jazz, pop to rock, to opera things. We like to approach each one of them seriously. We hear a lot of people musically do things. We’re starting a production company. We like to teach people how to properly approach music. When they’re used to doing one style, they might sound great doing that but then they change styles. We would like to leave our legacy to be able to teach people how to approach different types of music differently so that they can perform it and still be able to be effective in one style and the other. That’s something that I’m looking forward to.
One gift you have is being able to read an audience instantly.
That’s what it’s all about. Our shows are in Chinese, Italian, and French. It depends on the audience. We do some English things. You have to know how to pick those things, what the first song to do, where to do, what to do, and when and what to say. If there’s anything, the audience dictates to you. You have to feel them. It’s a 360, it will go right back.
You guys are good at that. At the last seminar that we’ve had, we’ve had somebody come in and DJ and they still ask about you. They love the DJ’s atmosphere but they still ask about you. They still talk about how much fun they had when we had you guys at our event. They’re telling other people that haven’t seen you guys at our event.
We’ll see you again, guys.
You guys have such great people at your events. We love your crowd so much. They’re interactive. We can talk to them while we’re performing. We can interact with them. They get up and dance. We’ll start a conga line on ladies’ night, Yolanda.
We started that. The last one, we had Marcus Anthony Ray. He used to be the number one highest-paid male stripper in the world for seven years straight. He was Mr. Nude. His life is different now. He motivates people in different ways. He tells about his experience. I don’t want to ruin it because he’s a speaker at our event. We had a preacher there, him and me. I was like, “Yolanda always does this for the ladies.” I said, “We’ve got to think of something.” I asked Ross and I said, “Ross, do you have Its Raining Men?” We played Its Raining Men. We threw all the girls while it’s playing It’s Raining Men.
All the girls went around and threw all the guys in to dance. What we did was like for ladies’ night but we did it with the guys. I don’t know if I sent you guys the video. I’ll have to share it with you. It was hilarious.
My question is, what did the preacher do?
He’s up there dancing too. I did a radio show with him, what an amazing human being. We never talked about religion, politics, or whatever. I want people to realize that you have the right to your opinion. I want to respect everybody. I remember the first time we had a lunch learning contribution. We wanted everybody to be there. Everybody got together for lunch. It was a breakout. Everybody got there. Whether you had money or not, we paid for lunch. People would come up and give money. I paid for this person. Nobody got turned away. The second day, I had this feeling because we were teasing the preacher about the stripper and the hypnotism. The people loved him. I said, “Preacher, would you do us a favor? Will you have a blessing for this meal that we’re together and united together?” He never mentioned anything like Christian, Jewish, it doesn’t matter. We had every religion and every person out there. That was the coolest thing he ever did.
That’s a part that we enjoy about entertaining, especially on a cruise ship where you meet many different people from different countries, nationalities, races and religions. We always put a song in there in our main show and it’s called The Prayer, Celine Dion, and Andrea Bocelli. At the beginning of the song, I said, “As far as I’m concerned, there’s only one race and that’s the human race.” Everybody claps and they love it. What I love about entertaining is you meet people and you don’t ask them what religion they are or what political side they’re on. It doesn’t matter. We all come from the heart.
You know wrong or right. They just need information. We do have some bad influencers out there, which don’t inspire. The best sermon is the one taught you, the one showed. What we love about our seminar is everybody is there. It doesn’t matter if they’re Democrat, Republican, black, white, gay, short or fat. We get together. People at our live event, if something happened, every single one would step up and help everyone in that group.
It’s the real world. That’s why we always felt great at your events. We look forward to them every time, honestly. If we could’ve, we would have flown back and done it.
We’re grateful and blessed. We prepare hard for our events knowing that it’s not the head that has the information, the heart delivers what needs to be done. You’re on stage too. You do events, you call it singing and entertaining. You’re giving people an option to have a moment of peace and that’s important, especially with what’s going on. I remember one of my friends, Chase Hughes. He’s an interrogator. I’m talking about the big boys overseas. What he would say is, “It’s funny. The only race that will follow a bad leader is the human race.” The animals follow their instinct. If it’s a weak animal in the pack, they get rid of them. We have to stay strong with each other. We’re all good together. Let’s come together. Maybe then good would happen. Maybe things happen. I hate to say it, for a reason. We can still do that. I was talking to somebody, it might have been you, West, I said, “The oceans need to be replenished again.”
You have to let it breathe.
People need to slow down.
Time is everything to us all. In our time, we have to let things open. You have to let them happen. If you squeeze things, what does pressure do? It causes explosions. You have to open things up to let the pressure out so things can exist. That’s what people need to understand.
We love our friendship with you, our relationship with you on and off stage. You’re always the same person to us. We want to say thank you for being here. I appreciate it.
Thanks for having us. We had a beautiful wakeup call. We’re like, “Come on. Let’s do this. Let’s do that.” I’m like, “Let’s go.”
What’s your favorite song you love to sing together that means something?
It depends on what jam it is. We do over 1,000 songs. Our favorite song to deliver a message is The Prayer. We throw a lot of party songs.
My favorite of all time is Bruno Mars.
We always have a thing. Every rehearsal that we have, “That’s my favorite now.” We might have a different now. I’ll see you at the next seminar. We look forward to doing it.Music should uplift people. Click To Tweet
If people want to get more information or listen to your music, how do they do that?
There are a few ways. We have a YouTube channel and there are some videos on there from the ships. We also have a website, TwiceAsNiceEntertainment.com. We haven’t put anything new on there yet. When we have time to do that, we will be.
I’ll remind everyone that everything you see, the title to the way we’re singing, we are playing to the audience. If we come to one type of audience, if it’s all Millennials, what’s going to happen is we’re going to play to those Millennials. If it’s a mixture, we’re going to play a mixture. Personally, we like the mixture.
I’m going to buy a piano when you come over here.
I’m going to hold you to that like she’s going to hold you to that pool.
I’m getting the pool. Westley is going to help us shop for a good piano.
I said, “Don’t be a fool. I’m going to keep you cool.”
I’m getting the pool. That’s how I see it.
I’ll help you dig it, Mark.
I will start digging.
We’ll have to do this again because it’s fun. Come and chat again with us.
Go to their webpage and check it out. Like their videos. Go to YouTube and check them out. Follow them on Instagram. Please share this with everybody. We’ve got a couple of events coming up.
We love you guys. We look forward to seeing you.
We’ll see you.
We’ve got a couple of events, Easier Life Mastery. I’m going to post some things on that. We’ve got that coming up. We’ll be there with Les Brown. Esther is going to be there, from BANKCODE and Jack Canfield.
I’ve got some news. Esther and Cheri had their baby. Kai is in the world and I can’t wait to meet him. We’re going to have to share this with the world. He was born. How awesome is that?
Happy birthday, Kai.
I’m excited because we get to meet. We were at the baby shower and we got to meet him. I’ve got to find the post because they posted a little picture.
We’re going to do another couple of Facebook Lives.
He was born on May 24th. He’s cute. Congratulations, Cheri and Esther.
Those are my other wives, by the way. We call them other wives. If you’re talking about a powerful problem, they call a program called BANKCODE. You will be blown away at their program. We’re talking about overdelivering. Being part of our community and team, we love them to death. All they do is deliver. They do it above and beyond what everybody says. It’s nice to find speakers out there that make a difference. They’ll be there at the Easier Life Mastery. Jack Canfield and Kevin Harrington will be there. We’ve got Les Brown and myself there, Ken Dunn. My two favorite people in the whole world, Cynthia and Ryan. You’ve got to love them. It’s crazy when Ryan and I get together. We don’t know what’s going to happen. We know it’s going to be crazy. We’ll be there. We’ll keep you in touch with that. Like us. Post some things on us. Check us out. On our Hypnotist Mark fan page, we’re posting videos. We edited one down to one minute. We’re laughing so hard that we started crying and wet ourselves. I wet my pants. A pool of laughter makes me cool.
Thank you for being here. We want to thank Shelly and Westley for being here. It was awesome talking to them. I’m glad we got to share them with you guys so that you could hear their story. They have an amazing story. You didn’t hear the half of it. Maybe we’ll have them again and we’ll chat some more. We’ll see you next episode. Have a great rest of your day. Enjoy whatever you are enjoying. We are going to go barbecue. We’re going to feed our friends.
To our military out there, we want to say thank you for the service you provided us. To my dear friend, Chuck Milligan, who we honor so much for what he has done and even our neighbor, Lorenzo, a military. To all of the military, my brothers, and my father. Especially my uncle Joe back east, what a great guy, my uncle Ralph. You guys have stepped up for us and I want to say thank you and we salute you. This country is safe because of the work you’ve done and you’ve provided. To all the military families that have overseas, you are a blessing to us. God bless you and much peace in your heart. Let’s never forget the reason why we’re safe, it’s because of you. With that said, I wish West and Shelly would sing them a beautiful song.
We’ll all do something next time. Maybe we’ll have them set up and they can perform.
I’m having a piano.

About Twice As Nice
Westley Stevens and Shelly Dartez have been internationally acclaimed professional entertainment artists for many years with a reputation that precedes them. Together they have traveled to over 60 countries. They perform all styles of music to audiences of all ages and every musical venue imaginable. They do it all. Thus tagged with the nickname the “Dynamic Duo.”
Westley and Shelly are originally from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, and currently reside in Las Vegas. After attending the Julliard school of music in New York City, Westley returned home recording, producing, and writing a string of hits with the Philadelphia International Records label known as “The Sound of Philadelphia.” During this time he also joined “The Stylistics” recording the Grammy award-nominated song “You Make Me feel Brand new”. He later worked with artists such as Lionel Richie, The Commodores, and B.T. Express.
Shelly is a veteran of Broadway musicals such as “Sweet Charity” and “Guys and Dolls” to name a few. After meeting Westley they started making beautiful music together.
Westley with his classy style and smooth vocals will amaze you with his creative ability to tickle the ivories of an acoustic grand piano or playing all of his keyboard synthesizers and drum machines “live” to give you the sound of a full orchestra. Shelly, a former flight attendant, and model will touch your heart with her wide vocal range and magnetic stage presence. Most recently they have been headliners with the Star Cruises fleet sailing through Asia, Australia, and in Hong Kong for the dignitaries of the Beijing 2008 Olympics.
They have also worked with Norwegian Cruise lines for many years as well as casinos, cruise ships, hotels, clubs, and concerts around the world from Las Vegas to China for audiences as intimate as 100 to the tens of thousands. They performed in Japan for 10 years even writing and recording songs in Japanese as they can sing in seven languages. From theatre, classical and jazz to big band, country, and today’s high energy chart-toppers, as a duet they are more than capable of providing any musical need as well as being a showroom act with or without a full production with a show band and or dancers, etc.
Their ability to transform from one musical genre to another with their unique style and arrangement plus their versatility and wide repertoire speaks for itself. Their talent, class, experience, and professionalism combined with their genuine personalities are what have kept them successfully working as a team for all of these years. Once you have seen and heard this talented twosome you will know why they are twice the music, twice the style, and Twice as Nice!
