Awesome “Red City” Beat

“Red City”

This is a really different post for me.

I was asked to do a nightclub photo shoot for the recently formed Vancouver, BC band “Red City“. They were performing at Jimmy Liks Nightclub & Music Room and it was quite a challenge because I had never done photos in a nightclub setting but I persevered and got a few pretty good images.

I am sharing with you a couple of these photos from the evening but mostly I want to offer the opportunity to listen to their awesome hit song which is currently playing in radio stations all across Canada. Early in October, the song broke the top 20 on the Beat charts. Here is the Youtube link followed by a few of my photos from the evening.

14 Minutes of Sweetness

My Friend Eduardo Del Signore posted a very sweet music link on Facebook today.Clarinet

This is a classical piece composed by his friend JohnTerryl Plumeri, Plumeri – Romance for Clarinet, for clarinet, strings and harp. The clarinetist is Robert Fitzer and the harpist Gayle Levant. Featured on WGBH Boston. This peace is pure beauty.

We often think of classical music being 100s of years old, Beethoven, Mozart, etc. This is a modern piece and very beautiful.

I’ve been through every musical interest possible. Classical, Country, Folk, Rock, Jazz – you name it. I got away from the classical stuff years ago, but I particularly enjoyed this not only because of it’s obvious sweetness, but also because when I was much younger, I played clarinet in a small jazz band and actually made a bit of money from it.

Here’s the link – hope you enjoy it: WGBH Boston
