Music has always been my everything! There’s not a day that goes by, where music is not a part of my life. I remember, sitting on the steps with my friends as a kid, listening to artists such as; Nirvana, the Beastie Boys, and Bon Jovi and being in awe of their accomplishments. Listening all on what we old folks like to call, a boombox!
Every night, before I would drift off to sleep, my radio would go on and an infinite randomness of rhythms on the radio, would play on through morning.
When I was old enough to go to concerts, it was all I did. In 1996, I attended my first show ever! It was Smashing Pumpkins at Nassau Coliseum. I also can say, that I had the honor of attending the first ever Warped Tour! Where some of the emerging punk/alternative artists; such as Green Day and Blink 182 paid homage to. I’ve seen talented artists, just like the local ones we see everyday, booed by concert goers, just like rap acts, Ice T and Eminem. This time I want to give something back to the artist. Soon enough time later, there were more opportunities! Events like, Riot Fest, Woodstock 99, Electronic Zoo, and more. I’ve done my homework and spent countless nights at bars and clubs including; Limelight, Webster Hall, Irving Plaza, and basically all places in between, just to get a taste of some new music.
My career in Music, didn’t start till August 2013. I was at a local bar/venue, called the Hub Billiard Club. I sat down at the bar, chatting with the bartenders and we started on the topic of music. I remember, they even mentioned that the owner lets emerging bands play! -and thats where I had my first notion! It was time, time to gather a few of my friends who were in bands, and to put on one awesome show! After some leg work and persuading, my friends decided to play live. We did it.
The show happened to be such a success and we were even invited back again. Back then, the bands I was worked with, wanted to play elsewhere, so I adapted and I began helping them. A few other acts found out about me what I was doing, and from there, it just turned into a crazy, whirlwind of fun-filled musical events.
My goal, and why I do what I do, is meant to inspire and maybe even help make dreams come true, too. The local artists, I’ve come to know and love, need a voice; a voice off of the stage, and that’s where I come in. I help with all analytical situations-data and planning, while musicians can focus on creativity and entreatment. It’s really all about bringing people together, enjoying the moment and growing as a community.
Nothing is better, than hearing some great tunes and being around your friends. It is truly something I feed off of. Something that is only best understood by eager, dedicated, and ambitious musicians.
Above all else, I do this, for the love of music, as an art form. Helping out local artists and getting them in front of tons of fans and industry personnel, Is the satisfaction I get, from my service, to have no boundaries or doubts, about my assistance.
Help me help you, and we will grow together!
