Afton

Afton produces concerts and provides online resources to help artists succeed. We do this because we are artists and we were forced to provide these solutions for ourselves. Our company was founded in 2004 to book shows for bands that our staff members were playing in at the time.

Starting out, we produced events for our bands and a select group of artists we were friends with. Eventually we resolved to provide show opportunities to thousands of artists across the country, rather than continuing to focus on just ourselves. We now count it a privilege to be able to offer our services to thousands of acts nationwide, for free! We work hard to provide artists the experience they deserve, and we believe we are currently better than anyone at producing local, all- ages events on a nationwide scale.

YBM

Raised in a musical family that helped to shape and cultivate his talent, Newark, New Jersey’s 21-year old Victor DaZe’s talent was evident early on—singing and dancing from as early as the 3rd grade. Victor adds, “I’m the youngest of 6 siblings, and they all have supported me in their own ways—always giving me great advice. My mom sang opera when I was growing up, so music has always been around me—from Pop/R&B, to Hip-hop, Soul, Classical, Rock and Jazz. I get new ideas and inspiration from a little bit of every musical style that’s out there.” Victor DaZe is also a musician and songwriter.

Growing up, Victor DaZe was strongly influenced by legendary artists Stevie Wonder, Marvin Gaye, Donny Hathaway, Michael Jackson, and Prince. Today, he is impacted by the music of Usher, Justin Timberlake, Rihanna, Miguel, and Chris Brown. Victor’s own sound has been described as a blend of Pop and R&B, with a little taste of Funk. His vocal sound makes his music feel unique and distinctively all its own. This kid also has a great look, is a trained dancer, models, and also has experience acting. Make no mistake — Victor DaZe is the total package.

A graduate of The New Jersey Performing Arts Center Scholarship Program, Victor DaZe has not only been a student of singing—currently being trained by Troy Randall (Patti LaBelle, Wyclef Jean, TLC0.He’s worked with Nat Adderly Jr. (Musical Director for Luther Vandross). Victor has been in multiple theatrical performances.  He recently acted and sang in Black Nativity at Crossroads Theatre, Directed by Lee Trusdale and Obediah Wright. Some of his past works include the role of “Judas” in Jesus Christ Superstar, “Miss Roj” in The Colored Museum, and Laertes in Hamlet. Victor studied acting with celebrity acting coach John Pallotta and Wendy McKenzie. He’s also trained in many dance styles, taught by Alfred Gallman, Obediah Wright and Jay Skeete Lee.

In addition to pursuing his love of the arts, Victor was awarded The Governor's Award for Music, The Music Award from The New Jersey Board of Freeholders, and was a finalist in The New Jersey “Shout Down Drugs” televised competition. One of Victor’s performance highlights was being able to sing and perform in Italy, performing as a soloist and also with a full choir everyday for 20 days. As a member of the Rutgers choir he traveled and sang in Germany. He studies Music and Theatre at Rutgers University. His film credits include the tv shows, NBC’s , "The Mysteries of Laura," Investigation Discoveries, “The Perfect Murder” the TV Pilot, “The Internet Ruined My Life” and has done a children's indie film, "The Bird Who Couldn't Fly." He can also be seen in the film shorts, “Breathe Please” as Zeph and “Backstage” as Dominic. 

With Victor’s unmistakable blend of Pop-driven, Hip-hop, and R&B—it goes without saying that anticipation for a new music release from this one-of-a-kind talent has been running high. DaZe delivers beyond expectations on “Movin On” — a vibrant, musically diverse song that sets a Rock-layered Lenny Kravitz feel guitar riff with an anthem-styled Soulful, Pop melody. DaZe also shines on “I Apologize” — a Pop/Hip-Hop, vocal-rich driven song that is well produced, and has a memorable hook with a head-nodding beat. Both songs are soon to be released as singles with the help of his producers of Royal Heat Entertainment.

Stay on the lookout for this young new rising star, as songs are being released, along with the launch of his YouTube channel. Victor is also preparing an exciting show to support and promote his new releases, so you’ll be able to catch him live in concerts, and also on the web performing. In closing, Victor adds, “I’ve been working hard, not just for myself, but I really want this and hope my fans appreciate my music, my acting… all of me. I want people to hear my music and feel good; help them get over or out of that relationship, or give them hope. I want my music to be an experience—a good one.” 

James Gedeon

Upon arriving in New York as a graduate student in the late 1980s, James Gedeon immediately began honing his craft in the Greenwich Village music scene in storied venues like The Village Gate, The Back Fence and The Red Lion. By the mid 90s, James had developed a reputation as a singer and songwriter able to make even individuals in the farthest reaches of a venue feel as though they were right up front.

James has since performed at New York's famed LeCirque; The Rainbow Room at Rockefeller Center and The Waldorf Astoria Grand Ballroom where he was part of the opening band for Dan Aykroyd and the Blues Brothers at The Alzheimer's Foundation annual fundraiser. He has also been able to take his music to areas outside of New York, having performed in Washington D.C. at the Smithsonian; The Harvard Club in Boston; in West Virginia at the renowned Greenbrier Resort; the Rocky Mountain resort of Flathead Lake in Kalispell, Montana; Mauna Kea Resort in Kailua Kona, Hawaii; The Ocean Club (twice) on Paradise Island in the Bahamas, and he even performed for the King and Queen at the Royal Palace in Morocco.

James has also taken the stage at Pebble Beach Golf Club in California with New York's acclaimed Stingers Band (a gig that had James providing an acoustic opening set for comedian Jerry Seinfeld's performance to an audience that included Clint Eastwood). In addition, he's opened for America, The Marshall Tucker Band, Jay Leno, Dana Carvey and Livingston Taylor. He has also performed with guitarists Oz Noy and Bernie Williams, drummers Dave Weckl and Steve Holley, sax man Mark Rivera (Billy Joel, Ringo Starr, Foreigner) and shared the stage at a private event in Vermont with Harry Connick, Jr.

James also performed at the wedding of radio personality Howard Stern. During the ceremony, James accompanied Dixie Chick Natalie Maines on the couple's wedding song, and followed that up by performing 3 duets with music icon Billy Joel. Later that same night, as a member of the house band, James backed up Phoebe Snow in addition to Pat Monahan of Train on the band's hits "Calling All Angels" and "Drops of Jupiter".

In 2016, James appeared as a finalist and was chosen as the winner of the 19 and over category in "Morristown OnStage" at the Mayo Performing Arts Center for his rendition of James Taylor's "Shower The People" in front of a packed house of 1,300 people. That performance led to Gedeon opening for the iconic band "America" at an April 2016 concert at a sold-out MPAC in Morristown, a show at which James received rave reviews from the audience, and from America.

Currently in the studio recording new material for his upcoming album and in rehearsals for his James Taylor tribute show, Gedeon continues to pursue his music with the same passion that drove him during his early performances in Greenwhich Village more than 25 years ago.

Some of James' most notable music clients have included ESPN Radio, Life Project For Africa, CNN, WPLJ, 77WABC in New York and The New York Jets.

Alex Miller

Miller’s voice projects something smooth and refreshing. His sound, deep and unique, stretches across a variety of instrumental influences from Phish to Queens of the Stone Age to John Mayer. He came out with this first CD, “Off Season,” at 18, to a crowd of summer acquaintances in 2004. A growing audience encouraged him to invest in a major recording “Just a Dream” released in August 2010. Overwhelmed by the success of his CD release at New York City’s Canal Room, Miller spent months self-booking and self-promoting a successful nationwide summer tour in 2011. As his foot was out the door for that tour in May 2011, a group of investors agreed to support his working on a third CD, titled “Chin Up, Buckle Down, and Let Go.” The songs on this CD chronicle a generic journey across the nation as well as specific events that occurred at stops along the way. “Chin Up, Buckle Down, and Let Go” will release in May 2012. Miller says: “As much fun as it is to be a singer/songwriter, I still prefer the energy of a crowd.” Since moving to New York in 2009, he has played at a number of venues including (le) Poisson Rouge, The Canal Room, The Knitting Factory, Rockwood Music Hall, The Living Room, The Bitter End, National Underground, and his regular spot–Prohibition. Miller relishes in gaining a fan base and getting his songs heard “the old fashion way”– by performing them.

Layla Davias
Layla Davias’s voice gives a whole new meaning to the expression “sing your heart out.” The emotion and passion she delivers behind each word may have changed the landscape of the Mona Lisa if Leonardo Davinci heard her in the 1500’s. She has the power and soulfulness that demands your attention for every interval of the performance.

Layla is no stranger to the television spotlight where she graced the Hollywood Stage in American Idol Season 2 and reached the semifinals in the most recent season of Star Search. In her time working with MBK Management, she performed several showcases at Nema’s Boom Boom Room in NYC, as well as “Live From Oz” with Jeff Robinson (Alicia Keys, Elle Varner, K. Michelle). She has sung backup vocals for Andrea Daly (NYC singer/songwriter) at the Rockwood Music Hall and recently performed at the Manhattan Center and the Las Vegas Convention Center for Martin Audio.

Layla has teamed up with producer/guitarist/musical director Frank Portalatin (guitarist for C&C Music Factory, Maxi Priest, Annie Lennox, Stephanie Mills, Seal, Jamie Lynn Sigler, Shannon, LMNT, Luke, Safire, and many others). Frank has been working with Layla to enhance her dynamic vocal range, as well as developing songs threaded by prodigious melody and soulful lyrics.

There are many artists that come and go from year-to-year, or even in today’s world day-to-day. This is not production hyperbolized by glitz and glamour or auto-tune and backup dancers. This is however, a magnification of the one thing any audience can be captivated by: talent. Layla has the most important ingredient that can span through any generation of listeners now and for … well, ladies and gentlemen here is Layla Davias.
