Christopher Wallace was murdered March 9th, 1997 in Los Angeles, California at the age of 24. To put thing into perspective, Biggie died when I was only three years old, and yet his music has still been a huge part on my life. I remember the days of riding around with my dad as "the Ready to Die" album blasted through the speakers. As a kid and being unaware of the meaning of every bar, and not understanding certain references, he had the ability to paint a picture that even I could understand as a child. Listening to songs like "Warning" and envisioning a giant super hero defending himself from evil.
In 1992, Pure Country hit theaters. The movie gained Strait even more publicity and fans (Carlin, 2006). Winning himself twenty-two CMAs and twenty AMCs, Strait was an outstanding artist. In 2008, he also got the Artist of the Decade. The George Strait Country Music Festival was a very unusual thing for a country artist, but of course it would be George Strait who broke boundaries.
It won 't be at a dueling piano bar, but renditions of "Sweet Caroline" are sure to be heard this weekend, anyway. The Grammy Awards are to be held on Feb. 8, but two days prior to the glitz and glamour the man of the evening will be the one and only Neil Diamond. Diamond was named the 2009 MusiCares Person of the Year, and the legendary vocalist will be honored for the recognition Feb. 6 at the Grammy Week gala dinner and concert. Six-time Grammy Award winners the Foo Fighters may seem like unlikely prospects to pay tribute to this contemporary soft rock singer/songwriter, but Dave Grohl and Co. will take the lead in tackling a tribute concert chalk full of Neil Diamond classics, from "Sweet Caroline" to "I 've Been This Way Before." The Foo Fighters will take the stage in a Diamond-filled night alongside other music heavyweights like Josh Groban, Tim McGraw, Faith Hill, Kid Rock, Coldplay, the Jonas Brothers, Jennifer Hudson and more, all of whom will be performing Neil Diamond songs in the concert.
The Monterey Pop Music festival was a concert that held for three day from June 16 to June 18. Thousands of people attend the concert to watch the musical performance by bands or singer that they love. Many popular bands involve in performing their own songs or covers such as The Who, Simon and Garfunkel, Grateful Dead and Jefferson Airplane. Simon and Garfunkel is my most favorite artist. They both born in 1941 and attended same school.
In 1999, we had 10 bands at the Mitchell Persimmon Festival ... for it was their 150th anniversary and they paid the bands to come). These days - most bands (such as ours) are out every Saturday traveling to contests around the State of Indiana. Sundays have become a "day of rest." However - it is really important to represent your community at the hometown parade, so Paoli Band is glad to do their
The world hopes you choose living and treatment. Mamou is as Cajun as it gets. The town numbers 2,242 (2010 census) residents with most of them working as either rice farmers or Cajun music musicians. In fact, Mamou is home to the world-famous Fred 's Lounge where Cajun music rings in the weekend every Saturday morning. As for being the right addiction treatment environment, this is a hard
The first band I saw that has such clout was Spoon and they played the big stage (Lake Eaux Lune) on Friday at 6:45 PM. Dating all the way back to when “Everything Hits at Once” was a staple on mixed tapes, everybody knew that Britt Daniel was a cool cat. And he still is. The set was fun and it was typical Spoon rock and roll. They played hits like “The Way We Get By,” “Do You,” “Don’t You Evah,” and a less expected track off of Girls Can Tell, “Take a Walk.” They were the only prototypical rock band at Eaux Claires—I wouldn’t mind seeing more Spoon-like bands next
The huge reputation about the festival provoked the attraction of singers and band. The first superstars to sign a contact with the organizers was Creedence Clearwater Revival agreed to play in the festival for 10,000$. The big percentage of spending money for the festival was for the acts that will be performed in the festival. the Creedence Clearwater Revival reputation that they have signed a contract will provoke many others to jump and sign a contact too because this band was very
My senior year was a great year for me. I was elected the Band captain by not only the staff but the entire marching band. My band director, Leslie Gilreath, wrote me as the main soloist throughout the show and got to perform in front of thousands every competition.
As I got older my brother introduced me to indie bands I grew to love. For example, Foster the People he told me to listen to their whole album instead of once song and that was the first full album I listened to and loved. Then, 2 years later, my still favorite band foster the people came to play at a one-day festival near my house. After weeks of convincing my mom if I could go, she finally said she yes!! That was my first concert and I went with my brother and best friend Bri.
