Formed in 1979 in Bath, U.K. as Neon (19) and then renamed their act to release two albums in 1983 - 1984 produced by Tony Mansfield (with whom Rob Fisher had recorded a single in 1982 as Planet Ha Ha). They were one of the first groups of the second british invasion in the U.S. charts, with their rendition of Bacharach And David classic "Always Something There To Remind Me" (No.8 in U.S. pop chart in 1983 and No.59 in The U.K. pop chart) and then with "Promises Promises" (No.11 in 1983) the 12'' extended John "Jellybean" Benitez mix of which features Madonna's vocals. Following their success in the U.S. Arthur Baker produced the first single of their second album "(What) In The Name Of Love" (No. 39 in the U.S. pop chart in 1984). After Rob Fisher's death on 25 August 1999, Peter Byrne released a solo alum in 2001 and he reactivated by himself the name Naked Eyes for a further 2007 cover album.

A long time fan of the “King of Pop” Michael Jackson, Jalles began imitating the star’s signature dance moves during his routines at Studio 54 and various other venues. Soon after the passing of his idol, Jalles began dedicating his talents to pay tribute to the late Superstar; and winning numerous local competitions for “Best Michael Jackson impersonator”, Best overall “Look” and “Best Moonwalk”. Over the last 8 years, he has been featured in multiple tribute shows on the Las Vegas strip, developing his tribute as “MJ The Legend”.

He currently resides in the nation’s #1 Michael Jackson tribute show, MJ Live at the Stratosphere Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas.

Tone Loc
Tone Loc
American hip-hop artist/actor, born 3 March 1966, Compton, California. Scored big in 1989 with his crossover hit "Wild Thing." Taken from his debut album, Loc-ed After Dark, the single was penned by fellow pop-rapper Young MC and featured a sample from Van Halen's "Jamie's Cryin'". Tone Loc was discovered by Delicious Vinyl label owners Matt Dike and Michael Ross in the late '80s, who signed him for his unique, gravelly voice. Even though "Wild Thing" and its follow-up, "Funky Cold Medina" (also written by Young MC) were huge commercial hits, and Loc-ed After Dark was only the second rap album to top the charts, Loc was quickly scorned by a majority of the hip-hop scene. Consequently, his sophomore effort, Cool Hand Loc (1991), didn't fare as well. Loc adapted, however, and left music behind to focus on his acting career. Tone Loc has since appeared in television (on Fox's "Roc") and movies (Posse, Ace Ventura: Pet Detective); and has used his instantly recognizable vocal chords to voice-over commercials and animated works.

Got his nickname from his name "Tony" and the slang term "Lōc", which refers to members of the Los Angeles street gang the "Crips", of which Tone Lōc was previously a member.
