Thanks everyone ... I brightened up the background a bit (as suggested) and can see a HUGE difference. I also tried one w/ Perry a little brighter.
The only thing I haven't touched (yet) is changing the font on "The Refrigerator" .. I kinda like the script, especially on the new background.
Anyhow -- if you think another font would look better, by all means suggest it .. and I'll give it a try.
Here they are:

RB-LJ Gore DMAC CJohnson Slaton
WR-Driver Chambers Bowe Brown
