The Gateway City Revue is a package show entering its inaugural season (summer 2011). It is patterned somewhat after Motown's famous "Motortown Revue". The show features a tight-knit band that backs 4 talented, good-looking and experienced front women: Desiree Boardwine, Brittany Klarich, Jaclyn Bradley and Leecie Rae. Audiences are treated to energy, variety, originality and a good time.

IMPORTANT FYI: The group can perform as a 9-piece, but also, individual members of the group can be booked for stripped, solo/duo acoustic gigs, etc.


Singer/songwriter Desiree Boardwine has been featured on national television (CBS' The Early Show) radio (94.1 WHBC) and local TV (WKYC Cleveland). In 2010, she won Time Warner Cable's "Random Acts of Music" Songwriting Contest and her subsequent music video, "Wonderland", can be found on the cable provider's "On-Demand" channel and is still enjoyed by many. Though young, Boardwine is an experienced performer who has played Northeast Ohio's best stages since age 16, including Cleveland's House of Blues, The Kent Stage, Musica and more.

Vocalist Jaclyn Bradley is a classically trained opera singer who loves to rock. Bradley's music has been featured on Bravo's "Rachel Zoe Project" and TLC's "King of the Crown". Bradley is not only a great singer, but is also no stranger to television cameras. For 2 seasons, she appeared on VH1's reality show, "Breaking Bonaduce", as a personal assistant to Danny and as a musical guest. She has also appeared on MTV's "Date My Mom" and provided a season of vocal lessons on Time Warner Cable's Local On-Demand.

Front-woman Brittany Klarich not only consistently delivers a great live vocal, but is also a true entertainer who works crowds and radiates energy, charisma and sex-appeal. She has recently performed for large, enthusiastic crowds in the cover band, RadioActive, nailing the songs of modern artists such as Ke$ha, Katy Perry and Fergie. Her role in GCR is similar, with the notable exception that most of the pop/dance numbers she performs with GCR are original, penned by keyboardist, Brett Boardwine (A.K.A. Cache). Klarich has been performing since she was a young girl, and like Boardwine and Bradley, is no stranger to being on camera, having appeared on "America's Got Talent" and more.
