ABOUT THE BAND
Three groovy girl detectives, one dashing man of mystery, and..... bosley.
Three gorgeous girl detectives (ahem, musicians) are on a mission from the 70s to ROCK you! Introducing Charlie's Angels: The Band, a loving homage to the era - and the classic TV show - that you know and love. With vintage props from the television show, glamorous period costumes, and on-stage banter, this fun and funky show will delight - and never bore - you!
The band's repertoire features classic, dance-worthy hits such as "On the Radio," "We Are Family," "Carry On My Wayward Son," "Magic Man," "Jungle Boogie," "Fox on the Run," and other uptempo tunes of the golden 70s and early 80s.
Charlie's Angels: The Band features an impressive A-list of world-class musicians and veteran performers who, collectively, have toured the world and performed for many thousands: Angels Stacey Anne (lead vocals and rhythm guitar), Jennifer Paro (lead guitar and vocals), and Andrea Zermeno (bass guitar and vocals); Rolly DeVore as "Charlie" on drums; Julie Dolan on keys; and James Alexander as Bosley (multi-instrumentalist).
Rolly performs in various other high-caliber tribute acts, including Kenny Metcalf as Elton, The Who Generation, Cheap Tricked, and PRISS (the female fronted KISS tribute). Jennifer's various bands (including PRISS and Cheap Tricked along with Rolly) have performed on the same bill with KISS, Paul Rodgers, Foghat, Jimmy Van Zant, Smashmouth, Frankie Goes to Hollywood, The Village People, and Kid Rock, to name a few. Lead singer Stacey Anne recently starred as "Madonna" in So Madonna (a tribute to the Queen of Pop's 80s heyday), and also fronts Country Nation, Southern California's top tribute to modern and classic country music. Bass player Andrea is a veteran performer who also plays bass in ThundHERstruck (all-girl AC/DC tribute) and PRISS (along with Jennifer and Rolly). Keyboardist Julie Dolan (as "Bosley") is known as the voice of Princess Leia in several Star Wars properties, and you might also recognize her from the VH1 Classic Rock series Rock & Roll Fantasy Camp. And multi-instrumentalist James Alexander, hailing from Tyler, Texas, is also a tribute band veteran who's paid homage to bands from Heart and Journey, to Poison and Bon Jovi.

SAXOPHONE AND MULTI-INSTRUMENTALIST
JEFF DELLISANTI was born and raised in Phoenix into a musical family where everyone played some instrument, from trumpet to accordion. Although Jeff was spared the accordion, he ended up taking up the saxophone, mostly because his family already had one. Luckily for Jeff, it turned out to be a good fit!
Fast forward through years of private lessons and band camps to completing his studies with a Bachelor of Music degree from Cal State Northridge with a performance emphasis on sax and bassoon. After receiving his diploma, Jeff's real education began in earnest as he began performing in a wide variety of venues, from cruise ships and Vegas showrooms and musical theater, to touring in swing and rock bands. And now, Jeff is thrilled to be "saxing up" Charlie's Angels!
Jeff has performed or recorded with many greats, including (to name a few): Ricki Lee Jones, Lyle Lovett, Skrillex, Shana Morrison, Bob Malone and the Young Dubliners.
Born into a musical family in Tyler, Texas, it was a foregone conclusion that multi-instrumentalist JAMES ALEXANDER would pick up his first instrument at the precociously early age of 6. He got his first chance when a friend of his dad's - who had lost an arm in an industrial accident - gifted James his first instrument: A twelve-string guitar that James strung with only six. By 8 years old, James was already playing guitar in church; and by 6th grade, James had moved on to sax, trumpet, baritone horn, and - with the encouragement of a music teacher - piano.
After moving to Los Angeles during high school, James initially dabbled in playing original music until the rise of grunge music prompted James to move on to cover bands (including "80s Rewind," now known as the "Pac Men"). He later put his skills as a multi-instrumentalist to good use in a long list of tribute projects, including Heart tribute "Dog N' Butterfly," Bon Jovi tribute "Wanted," two Journey tributes, Poison tribute "Pick Your Poison," and most recently, Pat Benatar tribute "Best Shot," Eagles tribute "Desperado," and "Charlie's Angels: The Band" (where he plays Bosley). In addition to his various tribute projects, James performs as a one-man band all over Southern California, and has been featured twice in Inland Empire Magazine.
