10 Mar

Click play below and check out Jungle’s rendition of Mark Ronson’sUptown Funk” ft. Bruno Mars from BBC Radio 1 earlier today. Jungle live is one of the more fun shows I can remember seeing in the last year and if you read the blog you know how big of a Mark Ronson fan I am. This version I can dig and I hope they start performing this on tour.

RIP Joe Cocker

23 Dec

Sadly another supremely talented one has left us for a place much better. RIP Joe Cocker, you will be missed. The legendary singer passed away on December 22 at the age of 70 having lost his battle with lung cancer. While the song “With A Little Help From My Friends” was originally a Beatles song, Cocker’s rendition made him a household name worldwide but for me, he was part of my childhood as the song was the theme song for “The Wonder Years.” His voice was iconic, his songs are legendary and he will definitely be missed. We’ve lost many amazing talents in 2014, but their music will continue to fill our ears with joy and happiness.

Now Playing: Sam Smith – “I’m Not The Only One” (Swear and Shake Cover)

Countdown to Life is Beautiful: Panic! At The Disco

15 Sep

Here we go, the home stretch towards the second Life is Beautiful festival in Downtown Las Vegas, October 24-26. In anticipation, each day at DoYouHearTheMusic.com I’ll be running down an artist or two on the lineup! If you haven’t gotten your tickets, do so at www.lifeisbeautiful.com and if you have, awesome and I can’t wait to see you!

We’ll kick things off with Vegas’ own PANIC! AT THE DISCO. Not only have these kids been kicking ass on tour this summer, they’re returning home to play their biggest Vegas gig ever. It should be quite the spectacle and we can all hope that they pull off their amazing cover of Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody.”
