Even as they drive slowly into the Shrine Auditorium parking lot for the Grammy rehearsals, the four members of the smash vocal group Boyz II Men seem to be moving at warp speed. With huge bodyguards leading the way as they hop out of their two Mercedes-Benzes, they flash broad, inviting smiles reflecting the quiet confidence and boyish nature that have made the squeaky-clean Philadelphians the new kings of R&B.

John Dukakis could hardly have hoped to compete with the wild bouzouki tunes of The Hellenic Sounds, the furious folk-dancing and the 10 kinds of flaky Greek pastry that dominated the Valley Greek Festival in Northridge on Sunday. But the 29-year-old son of presidential candidate Massachusetts Gov. Michael Dukakis did his best to capture the attention of the several thousand participants.

The campaign managers for Democratic presidential candidates Michael S. Dukakis and the Rev. Jesse Jackson won no secret-agent awards for their bungled first attempt to hold a private meeting. The two political rivals were quietly conferring over breakfast last month in the corner of an ersatz-French bistro in Washington's sprawling Omni Shoreham Hotel when a reporter found them and asked: "Why are you meeting?" "We were both hungry," Dukakis' campaign manager, Susan Estrich, replied tersely.

Stunned. That's the only way to describe the reaction at the Shrine Auditorium after Garth Brooks refused to accept the favorite artist of the year honors at the 23rd annual American Music Awards on Monday. "I cannot agree with this [award]," Brooks said from the podium, as the cheers in the house during the ABC telecast fell silent.

The first woman named as grand marshal of New York's famed St. Patrick's Day parade credits her selection to the luck of the Irish. "I was lucky, just lucky. God was with me," said an ecstatic Dorothy Hayden Cudahy, who won the post after being turned down for three straight years. Cudahy bears no ill will toward those who, for 226 years, allowed New York's biggest parade to march down 5th Avenue without a colleen at the helm.

In music, as in sports, changing managers is usually a sign that things haven't been going well. And making that change early in the season--or shortly after an album's release--can be a sign of panic. So music business watchers were caught off guard when Janet Jackson fired her new management team and returned to her former manager, just a few weeks after her new album, "The Velvet Rope," debuted at No. 1 with first-week sales of more than 200,000.

Democrat Michael S. Dukakis auditioned Sen. John Glenn (D-Ohio) as a vice presidential prospect before a home-state crowd today and said he rather likes "dull and boring"--a description often attached to both men. As for the criticism of Glenn's failed 1984 effort to become the Democratic presidential nominee, Dukakis said: "I've won campaigns and I've lost campaigns. I've run good campaigns and have had one disastrous campaign, so I'm very sympathetic."
