THE OFFICIAL JOHN DOTE' WEBSITE


JOHN DOTE' PROMOTER FOR THE "KING OF POP" MICHAEL JACKSON



AS FEATURED ON THE CBS NEWS * FOX NEWS * MSNBC

John Dote', born June 7, 1955 in the Bronx, New York is a dynamic American recording producer, engineer, songwriter, drummer, keyboardist, vocalist and record promoter who's image of gold chains, leather, fur boots and Rolls Royce landed him on the cover of many newspaper, magazine, radio and television. He has produced artists who have performed in front of a world wide audience on American Idol, America's Got Talent and Soul Train. Dote' has worked with Michael Jackson, Janet Jackson, Santana, Kotton Mouth Kings, Britney Spears and many others. In addition, he was the drummer of such monumental t.v. themes as Hawaii Five-0, Charlies Angels, Dynasty, Dallas and many more. As the host of "NightBeat In Las Vegas" as featured on The U.P.N. Screen Gems Network which he promoted for Santana, Garth Brooks, Britney Spears, Whitney Houston, Sugar Ray and many other major stars has garnered him 13 gold record awards and considerable success with many major record labels from coast to coast. At the age of 21, Dote' signed his first publishing contract with Max Weiss, founder of Fantasy Records in Berkely, Ca. and manager of Creedence Clearwater Revival led by John Fogerty. By the year 1981, Dote' was producing Liberace and his "live" performance "The Exodus" in San Carlos, Ca. to a sold out crowd.

 But his career really advanced in 1976, when record executive and promoter for Warner Bros. Records, Pete Marino signed him to Penthouse Records to write the theme for the hit television series "Wild World Of Sports" which was seen around the globe titled "May I Have This Dance?". It became a huge hit at studio 54 in New York where Madonna also broke out of years later and was also used as the theme for the grand opening of the largest Tower Records in New York. Marino signed him because he thought that Dote' could have been the "fifth Beatle" with his brilliant song writing ability. Dote' took "Disco" music to a new level even with the limitations of the technology back then and invented his style of "european disco".

 In 1982 he produced the album "Hooked On Themes" on Penthouse Records which included "Charlie's Angels", "Rockford Files", "Barnaby Jones" as well as the theme from "Dynasty" and the theme from the MGM t.v. series "Dallas". These t.v. shows ranked number 1 and 2 throughout the globe which gave Dote' recognition in the music industry.  In 1986, Dote' mounted a promotional campaign for A&M Records and the single "What Have You Done For Me Lately" by Janet Jackson which landed at number 2 on the Billboard charts. In 1987, he followed up his radio promotions for the "king of pop" Michael Jackson and the single "Bad" for Epic Records as seen on The CBS NEWS and world-wide. But on the day of the death of Michael Jackson, it was only moments when the media contacted John Dote' for an exclusive interview to get a closer look at the "promoter" and the "artist" in person. The media wanted an up close interview of the man who promoted Michael Jackson and the news cast showed up to his home equipped with lights, action and video.

His musical career took a different direction when he was invited and hired by American Idol management from New York to be the DJ for their event in Las Vegas to celebrate the birthday party bash for the creator of "So You Think You Can Dance" Nygel Lythgoe. Pop superstar Olivia Newton John was also present, but when Dote' played her music with John Travolta and the smash "Grease", he was politely asked to take her music off. His connection with American Idol did not end there. He was later approached as the chosen engineer among thousands to produce the soundtracks for American Idol "featured artist" who has also graced the stages of the Oprah Winfrey Show, Good Morning America, Regis and Kelley and the legendary David Foster. Thia Megia was the youngest finalist to ever appear on American Idol.

Dote' has promoted for every major star that reads like "the who's who" in the record industry including CHRISTINA AGUILERA, SANTANA, BRITNEY SPEARS, STING, MARY J. BLIGE, SARA MCLACHLAN, ROBBIE WILLIAMS, ENRIQUE IGLESIAS, N SYNC, THE BACKSTREET BOYS, GARTH BROOKS, SMASHMOUTH, CREED, MERIDETH BROOKS, KOTTON MOUTH KINGS, LEANN RIMES, MEGADETH, BLINK 182, GERI HALLIWELL (FORMER SPICE GIRL), MARCY PLAYGROUND, A-TEENS, SEMI SONIC, MARC ALMOND and even his own name, just to name a few. 

But his most memorable moments are when Santana would bring his guitar over to his San Carlos Recording Studio and layer his lead guitar while sitting on the couch to a Dote' composition with Dote' on drums. This is not about what John Dote' has accomplished but rather this is who John Dote' is.
