NIGHTBEAT IN LAS VEGAS PROMO / THE "NIGHTBEAT DANCERS" COURTESY OF MARY J. BLIGE
Glib, glamarous and glittering as any super star that he has ever promoted, John Dote' takes a short stroll down the hallway of his home to enter his studio to film another episode from the hit televison show that took him ten years in the making to create, "Night Beat In Las Vegas featuring John Dote" as seen on the United Paramount-Screen Gems Network.
Sitting behind his over crowded mixing console generating enthusiasm over what's to come, Dote's relentless persistence on the phone resulted in a deal with Capitol Records Associate Director of Visual Marketing, Bonnie Burkurt to turn over the entire Capitol Catalogue to Dote' for television exposure and personal interviews that included Garth Brooks, Geri Halliwell (former Spice Girl), Merideth Brooks, Lucious Jackson, The Kotton Mouth Kings and Lee Ann Rimes. The end result was LeAnn Rimes came out victorious with her smash hit "I Need You" and Dote' predicted and promoted it.
Whitney Houston is inarguably one of the of the biggest female pop stars of all time. Her accomplishments as a hitmaker are extraordinary; just to scratch the surface, she became the first artist ever to have seven consecutive singles hit number one, and her 1993 Dolly Parton cover "I Will Always Love You" became nothing less than the biggest hit single.
Soon , several other notable artists were rising to the top that included 9 time Grammy award winner Santana , Britney Spears , Mary J. Blige, Creed , Whitney Houston , The Back Street Boys, Sara Mclachlan and "N" Sync. Dote', is also a recording producer, theme drummer and engineer who filmed and edited the series right from his own home and the show was seen by millions of viewers.

"Night Beat" with John Dote' on the move
"Night Beat' with John Dote' was now on the move and officially the number 1 show of it's kind due to the collaboration with Capitol Records of New York. Dote' found himself promoting for other major record labels as well that included MCA, Geffin, A&M, Innerscope, Jive, Priority, Warner/ Reprise, Dreamworks and many Independant labels putting his signiature of approval if he was going to "break out" their new release. But his approval meant he was doing noone any favors. The songs from the major artists had to sound like a "hit".
Former Spice Girl Geri Halliwell flops on "Night Beat"
Although Dote' received praise for his promotional campaigns from various record executive's, there were "stiffs" and some of the super stars watched their records flop. For example, Geri Halliwell (former spice girl), Garth Brooks as Chris Gains and The Eurythmics all who were promoted by Dote', did not receive the national stardom as Santana and LeAnn Rimes. Since, "Night Beat In Las Vegas" is now off the air, but it has gone down as one of the most exciting shows to air in Las Vegas, known as the Entertainment Capitol of the World. Additional major artists promoted by Dote' included Megadeth, Smashmouth, Angie Stone, Robbie Williams, Nadine Rene, Sara Mclachlan, Enrique Iglasias, The A-Teens, Semi Sonic, The Moffats, Tracie Spencer, K-ci and Jojo, Rahsaan Patterson, Chris Cornell, Sting, Counting Crows, Blink 182, Marcy Playground, Shaggy, Beck, Everlast, Methods of Mayhem, Mary J. Blige, New Radicals, Julia Darling, Filter, Stretch Princess, Chris Issac and Alanis Morrisette.
