Faye remains our fun & lovely co-host/emcee since the beginning of DWOS. She brings lightness & laughter. Faye enjoyed a successful 25-year career in Southern California in professional entertainment. As a vocalist, comedian and actress, she performed with iconic star celebrities including Bing Crosby, Fred Astaire, Gene Kelly, Sammy Davis Jr., Ann-Margret, Rich Little, Lucille Ball, Billy Crystal and many others. Faye’s performances also sent her around the globe as an entertainment ambassador for Disneyland and Knott’s Berry Farm. She studied voice-over narrations and acting with the infamous Daws Butler of Hanna-Barbera and Warner Bros. In addition to performing Faye formed her own business, “Specialty Entertainment,” and provided event-themed entertainment for high profile clients and film premieres.
Exceeding her wildest expectations during her career and yet knowing she would always return home to her beloved Marquette, Faye has brought her skills back to our area. Known for her “Mrs. Consumer” past projects, commercials, voiceovers, stage, radio and television, she continues to lend her expertise and talents to many projects, now, often as a volunteer. “I love my home, this community, and am both pleased and proud to help where I can.”
Rob Shirlin is returning to “Dancing with our Stars Marquette County Style” for his seventh appearance as one of our two talented emcees. Born just outside of Detroit in Wayne, Rob found his way north and fell in love with the natural beauty and kind people of the Upper Peninsula. Rob graduated from NMU with a double major in Broadcasting and Theater then traveled the country following his passion. From acting here on this stage, doing voice overs, working with young actors or using his tech skills behind the scenes, he stays involved with theater in this area and others. You may also find him downtown working at his new business, The Edge of Reality Arcade. Rob is looking forward to helping at this years “Dancing with our Stars” and believes we all can find small ways to give back to the community and people that call this place home.
