Tony Gonzalez

Transcendence Theatre Company has offered Tony one of the most creatively challenging and artistically gratifying career experiences to date...

Tony has now been a part of approximately 14 Transcendence original concerts either as Director, Choreographer, Associate, Creator, Singer, Dancer, Props Coordinator, or biggest fan! Tony has a longstanding and incredibly rewarding relationship with the musical “Mamma Mia!”. He performed in the show for nine years in the Broadway, National Tour, and Las Vegas productions and served as Assistant Choreographer for the original Royal Carribean production, Associate Choreographer with Pittsburgh Civic Light Opera production, and Choreographer at Stages St Louis. He has recently returned to Transcendence after working as Associate Choreographer for the brand new, 10th Anniversary “Rock Of Ages” Tour. Other favorite performance credits include WE WILL ROCK YOU (Las Vegas), DISNEY ON CLASSIC (Japan), and SATURDAY NIGHT FEVER (Las Vegas, National Tour).

john iervolino

john iervolino (he doesn't like capital letters) is a Sonoma County businessman, entertainment entrepreneur and mentor. ...

john started his music journey right here in Santa Rosa as a classic rock drummer & rhythm guitar player. In 1977 john enlisted in the U.S. Army and shipped off to Germany. There, he learned the art of MC, DJ & Re-Mixer! In 1985 while living in Honolulu, john remixed several tracks by Falco, Janet Jackson & Jellybean featuring Madonna. The remixes, some of which were the first broadcast on commercial radio, shot right to # 1 and the rest, as they say, “is music history!”

After many failures, struggles and endless rejection, john signed a “sweetheart deal” with Universal Music in 1999 and went on to produce 8 national best-selling compilations on his independent label, Quiet Storm Records. Today, john is working with his son Angelo and a renowned Disney animator on his next big project entitled “The Amazing Adventures of Oliver!”

Elaina Smith

California native Elaina D. Smith has become one of the strongest female presences in Country Radio. ....

While working at Entertainment Tonight and The Insider in Los Angeles, Elaina found her true passion when she got an opportunity to work with a popular radio morning show in San Diego. She caught the bug and never looked back. Since then, Elaina has hosted shows in San Diego, Florida and is now on over 100 stations across the U.S.A. on NIGHTS With Elaina. While she is based in Nashville, Elaina is a bit biased when it comes to Sonoma County. “It is a dream come true to be on 93.7 The Bull. I grew up visiting Sonoma County my entire life, and this is the station my family listens to. I am so grateful to be a small part of the community, and take every opportunity possible to visit.”

 

Elaina is a three-time Gracie Award winning, CMA and ACM nominated broadcaster, who added “actress” to her resume when she was asked to appear as herself opposite Hayden Panettiere on CMT’s Nashville. You might also recognize her voice as the newest addition to the ACM Awards announcing team on CBS. Elaina is also the host of the award winning podcast, “Breaking Thru with Elaina” a female focused podcast that has featured in depth conversations with artists like Carrie Underwood, Dolly Parton, Miranda Lambert, Trisha Yearwood and Maren Morris. She has become one of the few women leading the conversation within the industry, about the lack of females in Country Music.
