JOHN DOTE' NIGHTBEAT IN LAS VEGAS HIT T.V. SERIES

Glib, glamarous and glittering as any super star that he has ever promoted, John Dote' takes a short stroll down the hallway of his home to enter his studio to film another episode from the hit televison show that took him ten years in "the making" to create, "Night Beat In Las Vegas featuring John Dote" as seen on the United Paramount-Screen Gems Network. Sitting behind his over crowded mixing console generating enthusiasm over what's to come, Dote's relentless persistence on the phone resulted in a deal with Capitol Records Associate Director of Visual Marketing, Bonnie Burkurt to turn over the entire Capitol Catalogue to Dote' for television exposure and personal interviews that included Garth Brooks, Geri Halliwell (former Spice Girl), Merideth Brooks, Lucious Jackson, The Kotton Mouth Kings and Lee Ann Rimes. The end result was LeAnn Rimes came out victorious with her smash hit "I Need You" and Dote' predicted and promoted it.

 JOHN DOTE' / MARC ALMOND "TAINTED LOVE" JOURNAL STAR MAGAZINE Article By Janice Kimmelli 

John Dote' has been wowing audiences for years with his drums, vocals and songwriting ability. He has performed live with such legends as John Lee Hooker, Buddy Miles, Santana, Greg Allman, Ike and Tina Turner, Liberace and many others. He has appeared on the front cover of many magazines and newspapers all across the country. His live performances in Las Vegas have drawn more crowds to Nellis Air force base and to this date the attendance records are unsurpassed.

His live performance drew more than 10,000 spectators when only 1500 were expected.  His concert on the fourth of July was nothing short of spectacular. He was driven in his Rolls Royce by none other than the Colonel of the United States Airforce to the stage where Dote' exited to the delight of a roaring crowd. Brilliant Bursts of fire works worth $100,000.00 lit up the Nellis sky at the Independance Day celebration Monday. Then 5 F15 fighters blew across the horizon with a show of force. And right after the sold out concert, John Dote' and Marc Almond headed out with the crew to film the video for the smash record "Tainted Love" for Virgin Records. Since, the song has become a classic hit world wide. 

Peter Mark Sinclair "Marc" Almond (born 9 July 1957) is an English singer-songwriter and musician. Almond first began performing and recording in the synthpop/new wave duo Soft Cell. He has also had a diverse career as a solo artist. Almond's official website claims he has sold over 30 million records worldwide. American artist Gloria Jones recorded the original version of "Tainted Love", which was written and produced by Ed Cobb. It was the B-side of her 1965 single "My Bad Boy's Comin' Home", which was a commercial flop, failing to chart in either the US or the UK. According to Nick Talevski, before Jones recorded the song, Cobb had offered it to the Standells, whom he managed and produced, but they rejected it.The Standells say that the song was never offered to them, and that they were not signed to Cobb’s company Greengrass Productions until 1966, some two years after Jones’s recording.

In 1973, British club DJ Richard Searling purchased a copy of the almost decade-old single while on a trip to the United States. The track's Motown-influenced sound (featuring a fast tempo, horns, electric rhythm guitar and female backing vocals) fit in perfectly with the music favoured by those involved in the UK's Northern Soul club scene of the early 1970s, and Searling popularised the song at the Northern Soul club Va Va’s in Bolton, and later, at Wigan Casino.

Owing to the new-found underground popularity of the song, Jones re-recorded "Tainted Love" in 1976 and released it as a single, but it also failed to chart. This version was released on her album Vixen and was produced by her boyfriend Marc Bolan.

In 2014, NME ranked it number 305 in their list of the 500 Greatest Songs of All Time

JOHN DOTE' AND THE INTERVIEW WITH "STIR" ON NIGHTBEAT IN LAS VEGAS / CAPITOL RECORDS

Stir was founded in 1994 as a three piece band at the University of Missouri, and consisted of lead vocalist and guitarist Andy Schmidt, bassist Kevin Gagnepain, and drummer Brad Booker. Schmidt, Gagnepain and Booker had been in another band previous to Stir named "The Choice" and decided to form the band when that band's lead singer, Rick Smith, decided to no longer pursue a career in music. They were discovered in Las Vegas by Capitol Records promotions giant John Dote' who broke their single "New Beginning" on his hit t.v. show titled "Nightbeat In Las Vegas", which aired on the Screen Gems Network. Watch the interview below courtesy of You Tube.

The band released a self-produced, independent LP titled "Until Now" in 1995 under its own label, Stir Music. Later that year, the band played at the South by Southwest festival. The band signed with the indie label Aware Records following the performance, subsequently releasing their eponymous debut album, "Stir" in 1996. This record included much of the material from the independent release. Later signed up by major label Capitol Records, the self-titled "Stir" was re-released to wider distribution.

Under the Capitol imprint they also released their second record "Holy Dogs" in 2000 and were praised[1] by radio program directors as the "new golden boys."

Commercial efforts and successes

The band found some radio success in the alternative rock genre. The highest charting single was "Looking For", from the eponymous debut, which peaked at number 8 in 1997 on the Billboard mainstream rock chart. However, the follow-up single, "One Angel" was said to be their breakthrough song, but failed to significantly chart during its release. The two singles from Holy Dogs, "New Beginning" and "Climbing The Walls", also saw some success on the Billboard charts in 2000, but were ill-supported by Capitol. While on tour with Train, five songs from the band's set, including "Superstation", were broadcast live on the Westwood One radio network. During this time the band also made two appearances on the nationally syndicated radio show, Rockline, on May 12, 1997 and March 13, 2000. During support of Holy Dogs they made an appearance on then-popularVH1 show The List, performing "New Beginning" as well as a cover of the Nirvana single "In Bloom" live in the studio. Rumors and talks of a late night TV performance never blossomed, although the band has stated they were close to appearing on the Late Show with David Letterman.
