Matt Codina is a guitar player, singer and artist who originated his role in the stage musical version of “Heartbreak Hotel.” He attributes his reputation as a premier finger-style guitar player to early influences like Elvis Presley’s first guitar player Scotty Moore, Merle Travis and Chet Atkins. The most exciting part of doing this show is getting to play the guitar lines of his idol, Scotty Moore, and play from his favorite catalogue of music, the early Sun Records recordings of Elvis Presley.

A veteran of the L. A. music scene, Geno has toured, recorded and made television with The Gap Band, The Pointer Sisters, Billy Preston, Smokey Robinson, Sly Stone, The Brothers Johnson, The Dazz Band, Roberta Flack and James Ingram w/Aaron Neville (at Carnegie Hall) and many others. In 2009, the Pasadena Playhouse presented Geno with the F.R.E.D. award for best actor in a musical for his performance as broadcast legend Jocko Henderson in “Baby It’s You,” the musical. In 2011, he originated the same role on Broadway.

Colte has performed the role of Jerry Lee Lewis in “Million Dollar Quartet” in multiple productions including the national tour, Chicago and Las Vegas productions. He works with and accompanies many performing acts including “The Leaders of the Pack,” which celebrate the music of the girl groups of the 40s, 50s, and 60s as well as “Elvis: My Way.” He is also Music Director for the Oklahoma State and National FFA Organizations and is a staff accompanist at Northwestern University and the Chicago College of Performing Arts at Roosevelt University.

Cole is no stranger to the music of Elvis Presley. His parents raised him on Elvis, as well as on country, blues and southern gospel music. He has portrayed Elvis and Johnny Cash in the hit Broadway musical “Million Dollar Quartet” formerly at Harrah’s. After a near four-year run, he went on to reprise those roles in multiple “Million Dollar Quartet” productions around the country. He was recently awarded Broadway’s “World’s Best Actor in A Musical” for his portrayal of Elvis in “Million Dollar Quartet” and is recognized as the youngest inductee into the International Rockabilly Hall of Fame.

In addition to theatre, Bill performs with multiple tribute acts, Rock and Roll bands, and entertainment companies throughout the country. As a bass player, Bill has managed to develop an organic slap bass style, as well as demonstrating some wild and crazy bass antics, that tips the hat to some of his major influences, such as Bill Black (Elvis Presley’s bassist), Marshall Lytle (Bill Haley and the Comets bassist),and Willie Dixon (Chess Records).

Whether it’s singing the National Anthem for 20,000 MLB fans, headlining in major shows on the Las Vegas Strip, or landing the cover of several major magazines, Jackie always enjoys the spotlight.

From an early age, Fana shared her passion for music, and as a teen, originated her role in the very first workshop of “Heartbreak Hotel.” In addition to singing, she is a passionate songwriter and has an upcoming EP titled, “HUES.” Fana attributes her craft to the lineage of blues, R&B, and soul singers she grew up listening to. Like her influences, Fana’s talent isn’t defined by any sole genre. She is a student of the past and a practitioner of the present.
