Reggie Stokes has been a guitarist for over 40 years. He cut his teeth on early Beatles songs, which inspired him to play the guitar. Gradually, he grew influenced by the Motown sound and many of the R&B/soul artists of the day. Growing up in rural South Carolina near Myrtle Beach, he became a fan of the “Beach music” style, which was a combination of local soul artists such as The Tams, The Embers, and of nationally known groups like The Drifters, The Platters, Wilson Pickett, and many more.
Later, he stretched out with blues, folk and southern rock. But when a friend introduced him to the art of jazz, he was inspired to become a true student of his art by enrolling to study music at a local community college.

Birthday Party (Adult)

Overall Talent

Perfect! Elaine Hudson is a STAR both as a performer and as a person. Professional, personable, friendly, patient, humble, honest, reliable and talented. The whole ball of string. And did I say talented? It was like having Gladys Knight, Whitney Houston, Aretha, Diana Ross, Tina Turner and Donna Summer all wrapped into one precious little package. You don't need a band to have the best party ever. Just Elaine and a sound system. A real American Idol! Many thanks Elaine. And many thanks to your lovely, talented and sweet daughter Tina also. You guys made my wife's birthday party a super special event that we will remember always.
