Kim Racan began her entrepreneurial endeavors as not only the owner of a health and fitness business, but also its fitness coach. A physician took notice of the success of the business and all it offered and joined forces with Kim to create a program called “The Well Being”, which was the 90’s predecessor to today’s Dr. Oz. During this time she met Gray Racan, who at the time was lead vocalist of The Vogues. Both Kim ad Gary then made life changing decisions, Gary to leave The Vogues and form studio e band and Kim to sell her fitness business and join Gary in the band, not only as a front singer but also its manager. studio e band is a 15 piece band with horn, rhythm, and percussion sections. The group performs at private functions and has grown to be extremely successful.
Shortly thereafter Kim met dynamic event planner Bonnie Walker and an instant bond was formed. Together they created studio e entertainment llc, an organization that provides event planning and entertainment for private events. studio e entertainment llc has provided services for Warner Brothers movie premiers as well as celebrity weddings, such as basketball star Dwayne Wade and his actress wife Gabriele Union and Recording artist Wiz Khalifa.
Based on the success and growth of the studio e band, Gary and Kim decided to use the synergy of the studio e band to create an organization to help American veterans. Being involved with the music industry, and realizing that music is a common thread woven into the fabric of all people, and that the members of their audience were comprised of all nationalities and walks of life, the Warriors Rock foundation was created to unite people through music. The sole purpose of this organization is to raise funds for America’s veterans through a series of concerts throughout western Pennsylvania. The studio e band will donate proceeds from the concerts to several national veterans support organizations as well as veteran’s organizations in the city of the performance.
