Revisted: (Photos) Rival Sons and Tyler Bryant & The Shakedown – 2.23.13 Las Vegas

24 Feb

Last night was one of those nights of live music you wish you could experience on a nightly basis. If you happened to be one of the roughly 500 people inside Vinyl at the Hard Rock Hotel in Las Vegas, you were treated to an evening of real rock and roll. Beware of Darkness, Tyler Bryant & The Shakedown, great to see these two perform again and wow some new fans. Rival Sons, seriously brought it last night, 10 minutes shy of two straight hours. A tip of the hat gentlemen on a great show! My review of Rival Sons will be in the next issue of Vegas SEVEN but until then, check out these photos from my friend, Erik Kabik.

DoYouHearTheMusic.com does Sunset Sessions

11 Nov

This past week, I had the opportunity to meet and interview a bunch of tomorrow’s big music acts as part of Sunset Sessions.  Arriving in Las Vegas for the first time, Sunset Sessions events are essentially a “convention” that brings together music supervisors and radio programmers from all over the country and expose them to up-and-coming talent as well as music legends.

Working with The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas’ entertainment team, the stage was set and over the course of three days we conducted over a dozen interviews.  I can honestly say this was an amazing group of individuals on both a personal level and of course a musical level.  I’ll get the videos of the interviews up as soon as they are ready but who I interviewed and who you’ll want to check out:
