Big Talent at The Big Apple!

Think of it - high above New York City!  New York, New York.   They say if you make it in the Big Apple, you can make it anywhere!  Some seasoned talent made their way onto The Roof on Wednesday night, March 28th.   I wish I could share you the sweet and sassy sounds that vibrated through the night air, but you will just have to listen carefully - imaginatively as you enjoy the photos.  Maybe you were there, then you know what I mean.    If not, be there next time!

Blu Ducrott (see top photos) made his way to the stage first.

PT Beardmore followed (musician Dragonfly provided comic relief) and then Lizaday Solo!

Lingual Marcus' has quite an impressive photo art collection of performers in his gallery these days, below the dance floor.

Visit the Roof,

The Choo Choo Chicks Live at VWBPE

The Choo Choo Chicks, what has been described as "a sassy, sizzling jazz and blues group" performed live from Chattanooga, Tennessee at the Virtual Worlds Best Practices in Education Conference.   It was an amazing dance party, just before the Machinima Exposition, just one of the many events of the international conference that brought thousands together to share in virtual learning and creativity - and incredible fun.   Catch the Choo Choos across the grid. They were among the performers at the International Women's Day Concert on March 4th at Minerva in Second Life.   

Check them out on YouTube!

Music Music everywhere

It's a beautiful day in Second Life today!  Regardless of RL obstacles, there's a place to kick back, relax and listen to sounds around us.   I invite you to tune into BOSL Radio's Slow Bake every Saturday 11AM SLT.    This week we feature Lisa Cuthbert's Obstacles.  Her web site will give you some info about her current and past projects - She's AMAZING!  Watch for her SL appearance soon, but for now listen to her online on BOSL radio in SL.

Also, be sure to check out Tone Uriza (a.k.a Tony and The Torpedoes) - lots of new song adds featured on BOSL Radio, especially on SLOW Bake.

U2 - The Virtual Vertigo Tour in Second LIfe

Deja vu - twice over.  Bono took to the open air stage at Cocteau.  It was a re-creation of the 2005 U2 Vertigo Tour in Chicago.  That show, now historical, had been caught on tape back then, and actually is a compilation of two Chicago concerts from that same tour.  That concert was recorded again inside Second Life on Sunday February 19th.  Kagnar Beck was instrumental to the U2 performance, and this in-world event was one of the many shows that he manages as part of his virtual tour series.   Watch the SL capture on U2!

Behind the Taping
On this particular Sunday in Second Life, the audience enjoyed a virtual rendition of the Vertigo Tour, complete with the original elements of the live soundtrack - Bono's interaction with the crowd, special dedications (like on the song "Original of the Spices") and the timeless music of the era, all organized superbly to give you the sense of being there in the Windy City at that memorable event, seven years ago.  

This moment could only be relived properly at Darkside Rawkerz Club, the venue host for this virtual extravaganza. U2 tribute band members were Kagnar on vocals as Bono - 

Larry Muller Jr. (TiajaMaja Shan) on drums, Jamesy Halostar (The Edge) on guitar, and Adam Clayton (Inuott Cuttita) on bass.   Venue owners Robbie and Chiara Bravitz and hostess Kanda Kyong greeted visitors and danced the night away in the midst of the U2 fans and spectacular lights and sound. 

Kagar, one of the original founders behind TDDI Tribute Band Productions, traces inspiration back to 2008, and the rest has been an evolution.  The playlist and production team has quickly grown, with U2, Motley Crue, Muse, Queen, Nickelback, GreenDay and so forth, among the now 31 tribute bands.  The wide eclectic range of bands is quite impressive.  TDDI's company site hs concert dates and information related to Kagnar and his team:
