All of you will surely recognize the man on the left. His biblical image comes at you in all of its hair and puffy-shirtness like a thunder clap. Yanni stands as the hairiest, women-loving man I know [of]…though Hugh Jackman must be at the top of this game too! And on his right is the… Continue reading Lost and Found: 1 Grecian ‘Stache
What’s the Frequency, Kenneth?
Frequency is probably a term more commonly associated with 80’s synth-pop artists and electrical sound engineers. However, it’s not to be underestimated or underutilized as a viable word in other situations. I worked with one of the more difficult teaching challenges in my experience yesterday at my drum circle. A gentleman joined us with a… Continue reading What’s the Frequency, Kenneth?
Twitter Updates for 2008-09-03
Discovered a new artist (musical) I dig: Zoë Keatinghttp://is.gd/2a4s # Road rash is getting better, but I’m not quite out of the woods yet. Tomorrow is exactly 1 week. # Dropped off a crying kindergartner. It’s worst when I take him. # Who saw Bush read a prepared statement to an apparently empty room? Hilarious.… Continue reading Twitter Updates for 2008-09-03
An International Soiree
We recently attended the Gypsy Mediterranean Arabic Balkan Dilos Musicians of Atlanta meetup.com event. It was a complete blast! I’ve not had the opportunity to play with such a diversity of talented musicians before. I wasn’t even sure what kind of music to expect given the group’s name, but I caught on quickly enough. For… Continue reading An International Soiree
The name Pandora means “all gifted” in Greek. In ancient Greek mythology, Pandora received many gifts from the Gods, including the gift of music, from Apollo. She was also, as we all know, insatiably curious. Unlike those Gods of old, however, we celebrate that virtue and have made it our mission to reward the musically… Continue reading Pandora’s Jukebox
The Philosophy of Creative Energy
I heard an interesting perspective from a devout Christian man the other day and have come around to finally closing my thoughts on the matter. The discussion began as a consequence of a friend’s comment, “my brother is a Christian and a musician, but not a Christian musician.” Just so you understand the context of… Continue reading The Philosophy of Creative Energy
Raquy Danziger Workshop
Saturday I took a workshop with Raquy Danziger of Raquy and the Cavemen. She’s touring for her latest album release, “Naked.” I’ve been looking forward to this workshop since before it was actually being offered with her busy touring schedule. Perseverance paid off and the schedule was finally updated to include Atlanta as a stop… Continue reading Raquy Danziger Workshop
Dan Zanes Concert
Saturday was our big day for the Dan Zanes concert followed by yummy food at the Varsity in Atlanta. Hard to top that! Balthazar didn’t get quite as much out of the concert as we had hoped; he was tired and hungry. But he did get to hear his favorite song, Catch that Train!, before… Continue reading Dan Zanes Concert
I’ve recently gotten really inspired to do more with music. Growing up, I always played an instrument – piano, saxophone, guitar, drums, etc. I’m playing drums a lot lately, but I’ve started picking up the guitar again and finding great opportunity there. I’ve also gotten a slight bug to really try and address my singing… Continue reading Musical Inspiration
Dan Zanes is my new favorite artist. His musical philosophy parallels my own and a CD can move through a bevy of instruments, styles, and nationalities. I have one of his later CD’s, “Catch that Train!” I’m actually not exactly sure if I truly own the CD because I purchased it (digitally) from AllofMP3.com and… Continue reading Dan Zanes
