As soon as Waka Flaka came on to the stage, his presence, energy, and his music exemplified what Black Music was all about. It was about engaging your audience; it was about making people feel a part of the music and the culture. It was about sharing who he was and what his culture is with everyone. It was unique and full of life. His energy stayed at the same momentum until the performance ended, never skipping a beat or forgetting what he was there for.
The everlasting rhythm changes and the different melodies being played, lead to the empowerment of my mind and soul and make me feel as if everything going on around me will be okay. I will be able to experience one of the greatest bands that have laid the foundation for bands to come. Having the ability to go see Led Zeppelin would be a life changing experience. They have helped me overcome countless adversities and get me through the darkest of times. Having a ticket in hand to go see this band would be a life changing experience and would greatly affect my
They started with a small group, in 1966, as a trio group, known as the Missing Links. They slowly added more and more individuals. By the time the end of 1967 rolled around the band was composed of seven members, each member specialized in their own instrument. Today there are 9 members that are a constant presence in the music scene. Once the full band of Chicago was formed they had a slow route to the public eye, they often declined interviews due to their avid practicing and composing (Gile).
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.
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. This star-studded production is just one part of the night 's activities, and a charity auction will also take place the same night, featuring Diamond 's own 1956 Ford Thunderbird as one of the auctioned items, as well as a signed guitar by Eric
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 musician has ridden the success of a fifteen year career, spanning five albums (three went platinum and one greatest hits offering), seven ARIA nominations, an APRA Silver Scroll Award, numerous Top 10 singles, and he has toured internationally with brothers Jon and Dann. In the past, he has performed for arenas of people, but that night at the Worker’s Club in Brunswick, there was none of that. It was simply a man and his guitar, and it was clear that he
When Dylan entered his teenage years, he began listening to rock and roll. Throughout Dylan’s high school years, he formed multiple different sounding bands that often played at his high school talent shows and were influenced by Elvis and Little Richard. In the late nineteen fifties Dylan moved to Minneapolis to attend the University of Minnesota, often performing at a coffee shop on campus. When he attended university, he happened to change his name from “Robert Allen Zimmerman”, to ‘Bob Dylan”, even crediting his name to one of his favorite poets, “Dylan Thomas”. His aspiration of entering the music industry originally crossed his mind in college.
I’m so excited for what my high school choir experience could bring me. All I have ever thought about high school choir and what it’s like has been shattered in five minutes. It’s a large step up from the simple middle-school songs we always sing. Though those are fun times it doesn’t compare to the joy of singing with skilled, experienced people. It’s a big step up and though it will take hard work I’m excited to see what my future holds with this
I have played the keyboard, guitar, bass guitar, drums, and vocals with my church band onstage with different songs every time I get up to play. I have led classes in music by myself and through teams for five years. After teaching piano for two years, I got into a discussion with my dad about leading a kids music band. He thought it would be a great opportunity to lift my skills, as they say in music, an octave higher. I thought it was a brilliant idea!
