Countdown to Life is Beautiful: 27 Days – X Ambassadors

28 Aug

27 Days and counting! Bring on the heat, music, food, art , learning and of course the party!

If you listen to the radio or watch TV it’s a given you’ve heard “Renegades” the hit single by X Ambassadors. The song has been charting all summer long and paired with a massive add campaign by JEEP using “Renegades,” the Ithaca, New York alt rockers are surging in popularity. Back in 2014 “Jungle” spiked the band’s popularity and where you may know them from. Having gotten a chance to see them out on tour earlier this summer I can attest that their live show is one you won’t want to miss. Catch them at Life is Beautiful on Friday, September 25.

Now Playing: Jungle cover Mark Ronson ft. Bruno Mars -“Uptown Funk”

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.
