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, 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.
Shane McDonald - Keyboards / Musical Director
Shane McDonald is the Celebrating Queen keyboardist from Waterford, Ireland. Shane has been playing the music of Queen since 1992. Shane has transcribed many of Queen’s pieces through his Queen fan website and he knows the music of Queen inside-out, so you will get authentic performances with all the intricacies you expect to hear. This is our Spike Edney!
GREG BENTON - BASS / VOCALS
Bass player, Greg “Deaky” Benton, is half of Celebrating Queen’s powerhouse rhythm section. As a scholar of the music of Queen’s John Deacon, Greg Benton performs with distinctive similarities to his counterpart. So much so that he is perhaps best described as the quiet guy in the room that has a huge impact on the overall sound of Celebrating Queen.
CJ MIDNIGHT - Voicestravarius
CJ Midnight, better known as Carl, is regarded as a secret weapon within Celebrating Queen. He has been an integral part of Celebrating Queen from the beginning and loves to perform. With his Voicestravarius, he sings and replicates Queen’s fastidious and precise vocal arrangements.
Santiago Luna - Percussion
Santiago Luna is the heart and soul of the Celebrating Queen percussion section. His beat is central to the music of Queen as he channels his inner Roger Taylor.
ERIC P. MOODY - Audio/Visual Stage Manager
Eric is a consummate professional with many years experience in the broadcast sector in the areas of audio/visual technology. Celebrating Queen are very luck to have his expertise in this area, a talent that many bands would crave.
