The Musicians

JJ Midnight Lead Vocals

J.J Midnight : Lead Singer

JJ Midnight, lead singer of Celebratign Queen, is from Connecticut and has performed in singing roles all of his life. When a musical associate first told him that he was a vocal print match for Freddie Mercury’s voice, he paid close attention to what the master teacher, Freddie himself would do. There is no better vocal coach than Freddie Mercury.

Chris Gordon Guitarist

Chris Gordon, Lead Guitar

“It was the first time I heard Brian May’s guitar bit in We Will Rock You” says Chris when asked what brought him to the guitar. “I remember hearing that sound, I was nine years old and I asked my sister what I was hearing. She said it was a guitar, and I said I want to make those
sounds!” … So began the journey that has been his life pursuit.
