The best kept secret in music



Dear Sir:
This is to congratulate, and at the same time give thanks to, you and the management of
Paradise Lakes, for having allowed us to enjoy such a tremendously wonderful time on
the evening of June 8thwith a performance by Rafael and Company. Having been
members of Paradise Lakes for twenty years, we would say this was one of the most, of
many, enjoyable times we have had during those years in the club.
Rafael and Company treated us to a musically flawless performance that included every
type of American music from Elvis and the Platters to current country music. This is
probably the only group of performers we have ever heard, who are able to brilliantly
handle such a wide range of styles. Furthermore, their dynamic personalities, and their
ability to engage the audience in the fun, added very significantly to the good time we all
had. Paradise Lakes has been for many years the best clothing optional resort in the
country; this evening of first-class professional entertainment was another bright star for
the Club.
The only regrettable moment was going home at 11:00 PM due to the need to be at work
early the next morning. Please have Rafael and Company back again and, perhaps, also
on some weekend evenings so we can stay and enjoy their performance longer.

Thank you so much for working with us on the 3rdAnnual Elvis Festival. I know all the
folks loved you and your group's performance. We look forward to working with you
on future events.
Thanks again.

This letter has been a long time coming since my wife Dianne and I first attended one of your shows purely by accident.
Since then we have gone to many of your performances through out the area and have always enjoyed your spirited entertainment, your wonderful vocals most of all your interaction with the audience. You and your partner Mr. Lalino, possess a truly unique ability that you don't see in any kind of entertainment venues that I have seen in the Tampa area. This special ability makes the audience feel like they are part of the show, that they know you really care about what you are doing andit's not just another gig. The warmth and sincerity as well as the variety of your shows keep myself and my family, as well as my friendswanting to keep coming back for more of the clean family oriented fun, energy and excitement that you never seem to run out of. Your show appeals to both the very young and the young at heart, which is the perfect mix. I also know that what youare doing is working and contagious. Now, I have to make reservations a week or more in advance instead of the next day if I want to get a table. I hope you and your partners Doug and Ralphie continue on with the standards that you have aimed for, which are the stars because you are there!
Thank you for all the efforts you put forth.

Feeling a bit camera shy


A fateful meeting at a Christmas party in 2002 has resulted in a successful partnership for Rafael Roger and Doug Lalino.

Rafael began his career as a musician and vocalist. Doug was performing locally in theater companies and as a soloist. Each has his own unique style, and when they performed together, something clicked. Their charm, charisma, warmth and a genuine respect and appreciation for each other's talent has earned them a loyal following. They have developed a "show-stopping" repertoire and have become audience favorites at some of Tampa Bay's finest establishments. Their style has been described as a "Las Vegas variety show."

Rafael & Co. envision entertaining at major area venues and moving on to radio and television.
