Generation to generation Marty can carry himself just fine! The vitality of Marty Allen is with an "R" for respect.Hello Dere along with his beautiful and talented singer/pianist wife Karon Kate keep you laughing and bedazzled. Karon Kate and Marty met in the mid 80s, the two began performing together, combining Karon's music and Marty's comedy. Karon was born and raised near Ellisville, Mississippi. As a vocalist, she can glide effortlessly from country to rhythm and blues and gospel to a ballad by Irving Berlin or the Gershwins. As a musician, she can pound out a rock `n' roll song on the piano Jerry Lee Lewis-style or take an old-fashioned ragtime tune and really make it swing. Many of the songs she sings are her own compositions. Karon's career began in nightclubs and showrooms throughout the country, opening for the likes of Wayne Newton in Las Vegas and Burl Ives in Reno. Karon's television credits include The Tonight Show, The Regis Phi/bin Show, and Hour Magazine. When Karon is on stage, there is never a dull moment. If all the energy that Karon Kate pours into her performance would be harnessed, the lights of Las Vegas and Atlantic City could run on that energy for a million years. Karon's boogie-woogie at the piano brings down the house very time. Karon sings a lot of old favorites, but she also includes a few of her own compositions such as Wedding Vows, a song she wrote for Marty on their wedding day. One of Karon's singles entitled, I Can't Laugh was a Cashbox "pick-of-the-week" selection in 1994. Karon is presently in the studio recording a new version of Dusty Springfield's I Only Want To Be With You. Proceeds from the sale of her tapes, CDs and sheet music are donated to Childhaven, a home for battered and unwanted children in Las Vegas.
