Countdown to Life is Beautiful: 11 Days – Walk The Moon

13 Sep

This one is special to me and I’ll champion Walk The Moon for as long as I can because they are a great group of guys and their music is fantastic. I only wish for good things to happen to good people. I was a fan of Walk The Moon the first time I ever heard “Anna Sun” and wrote about them on the blog back in May of 2011. I first saw them on the Sonic Bids Stage at Bonnaroo later that year and was enamored with their live show. At the time I was writing concert reviews for Vegas Seven and was asked to start interviewing bands for some upcoming columns. The first ask was to Walk The Moon. I ended up meeting the guys in the Lollapalooza media village where we proceeded to sit Indian style in a circle underneath a tree so I could conduct the interview. It was so bizarre yet worked beautifully. Since those days the guys have exploded and are riding an all time high to stardom and I couldn’t be more excited. They put out as much energy as any band on stage and what they receive from the crowd is tenfold. It’s a sight to witness and on Sunday of Life is Beautiful, I cannot wait to see thousands of screaming fans singing and dancing. Get your face paint ready, pull out your dancing shoes and let’s go!

Watch Pharrell talk Daft Punk – Random Access Memories

16 Apr

Yes I know, we all can’t wait for Random Access Memories to drop next month. The anticipation is still here, it keeps building and if you really do love Daft Punk, you must watch this interview with Pharrell. If this doesn’t get you even more excited you may as well just go listen to something else.

Ever since seeing the final Pyramid Show, I’ve been waiting for the opportunity to bring me back to that moment.  2013 has been an amazing year so far for me and why not let it continue with some of my favorite musicians. Viva Daft Punk!

My Interview with Christian Zucconi of GROUPLOVE in Vegas SEVEN

27 Sep

What can I say except I’m a huge fan of Grouplove and I have been for some time.  Having had the chance to see them perform live several times, I’m excited to see them next week out here in Las Vegas and to make it even more special, I had the opportunity to chat with Christian Zucconi to preview the concert in the new issue of Vegas SEVEN.  The issue dropped today and you can click HERE or see below.

Hope to see everyone at the show, it’s going to be a great one and Christian promised a jump in the pool following the last song!

News: @WalkTheMoonband Self Titled Album Drops Today!

19 Jun

I couldn’t be more excited today for the fellas of Walk The Moon as they release their self titled debut album on RCA Records. Having had the pleasure of meeting the guys, interviewing them and seeing them in concert at Bonnaroo, Lollapalooza and here in Las Vegas I feel like I’ve kind of been along for the ride a little. I’m beyond stoked that they are now getting heavy airplay, being tabbed by MTV as a Push artist, Esquire.com adding them to the songs of the summer (for a second year in a row) and more. These guys are still ascending and it’s one of those things that just makes me smile; plus I think everyone should be digging their music and right in time for summer it’s perfect tunes to enjoy three months of sunshine. Added bonus, tune in to David Letterman tonight where the guys will be the special music act.

Track listing
1.) Quesadilla
2.) Lisa Baby
3.) Next In Line
4.) Anna Sun
5.) Tightrope
6.) Jenny

My inerview with Jimmy Cliff as it appears in Vegas SEVEN (6 14 12 Issue)

14 Jun

Next week Jimmy Cliff will take the stage and perform poolside at the Hard Rock Hotel here in Las Vegas. A few weeks ago I had the honor of speaking to him for a feature in Vegas SEVEN to preview the show. Before you read the below I have to tell you, not only is Jimmy Cliff an amazing musician but personally I believe he is an even better human being. He has such a beautiful outlook on life and is someone who we can all learn something from. Without further adieu, my interview with Jimmy Cliff. Hope to see everyone out at the pool next week.
