ANCHORED

 

Texas has been known to breed some of the loudest and most hard-hitting bands on the planet…ANCHORED is definitely no exception. Straight out of Dallas, TX comes this Gang of Four who pack as much attitude as their punch with their infectious style of rock’n’roll. Blurring the lines between Shinedown, Velvet Revolver, STP, and Papa Roach these Dallas transplants have brought their own brand of ear candy to the masses and everybody is invited. ANCHORED formed in the spring of 2009 as a new project by ex- ADVENT singer Brandan Narrell. He built ANCHOREDS’ first release, “Listen to This”, around his passion for music and his desire to live, eat, and breathe his vision of rock redemption with no apologies or regret’s.

 

The release of “Listen to This” in 2010 and through 2014 spurred 3 singles, 3 videos, 5 National tours with such industry heavy weights as Saliva, Black Label Society, Volbeat, 2 Regional tours, Japan, and S.Korea tours from the freshman debut album. After feverish writing sessions, the birth of their sophomore record lead them to the world famous NRG Recording Studios. Working with renowned producer Jay Baumgardner (Linkin Park, Korn, Bush) they completed their new album and redefined their signature sound with deadly intent. The process would also garner them the opportunity to collaborate with rap icon Snoop Dogg to create the contagious party anthem “Throwin’ Down”. Both the band and Snoop shot the video for the track against the dilapidated backdrop of the L.A. basin as a precursor to the release of the new album.

 

In late 2016 Anchored signed a record deal with Pavement Entertainment. Anchored is extremely excited to work with Pavement and all their new label mates. Narrell said “after a short time in talking with the VP of Pavement I knew that they were the label I wanted to be on.” Now, with the chamber loaded and the finger on the trigger, 2017 and beyond looks to kick off with a bang!

 

 

Vices of Vanity

 

Vices of Vanity is Atlanta, Georgia’s hard hitting female-fronted powerhouse trio. The rock band formed in 2016 to offer something original to the cover-heavy ATL scene. The sound is a modern update of the old school vibe of Black Sabbath and AC/DC that recalls everything that’s great about rock music. The concept is simple: one guitar, bass, drums, and a seriously hot vocal are all it takes to rock the house.

 

The band is guitarist/vocalist Lynnay Della Luce, bassist Amy Epperley, and drummer Hunter Cook. The three quickly developed a distinctive modern hard rock sound after just a few writing sessions and released the tough-toned single “Hard Way” in July of 2016. Following that were 2017 single releases "Loud" and "Zombie" (a Cranberries cover), followed by the band's first EP ROWDY, released in January of 2018.

 

Vices has opened up for nationally touring acts such as Fuel, Otherwise, Through Fire, Righteous Vendetta, and Saving Abel. Vices of Vanity has become an Atlanta favorite, known for a no-holds-barred rock show that can burn the roof off of any venue in town.

 

Rock fans: meet your new favorite band.

 

 

Rusted Soul

 

Rusted Soul is Woodstock, Georgia’s original, unmistakably haunting new style of rock that everyone within earshot is drawn to. Their recordings are epic, but their live show is where they will capture your very soul. Rusted Soul is currently touring the South Eastern U.S. and working their way to touring the world!!

 

The band consists of Fred Hadley (Vocals), Jennifer Fowler (Bass), John Ward (Guitars), Kyle Lake (Guitars), Joe Burson (drums and percussion).

Rusted Soul will be around for a very long time. Few bands write music that you can actually feel. This is one of them. Enjoy!!

 

 

4 DAZE DEAD

 

4 DAZE DEAD is a American hard rock band from Columbus, Georgia formed in 2016. Their diverse musical backgrounds and influences contributed to the creation of their unique sound, from hard-hitting rock to soulful, melodic grooves.

 

The debut EP "Uproar" was released in July 2017.

 

"Cold Hearted Woman", the first single, was featured in Stencil Magazine 2016, and the EP "Uproar" was featured again in Stencil Magazine in 2017.

Event on 2019-03-07 20:00:00
View biography in full page >

Born in London in 1971, Thomas Adès studied piano and composition at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama, and read music at King's College, Cambridge.  Renowned as both a composer and a performer he works regularly with the world's leading opera companies and festivals.  

Recent conducting engagements include a tour with the Britten Sinfonia, concerts with the Chamber Orchestra of Europe and the Gulbenkian Orchestra as part of his Gulbenkian Foundation Residency, the London Symphony and Sao Paulo State Symphony Orchestras, his debut with the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra, the Los Angeles Philharmonic, the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra, the Philharmonia Orchestra, Mariinsky Theatre Orchestra, the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra, the BBC, Finnish and Danish Radio Symphony Orchestras, the Birmingham Contemporary Music Group (whose Music Director he was between 1998 and 2000), the London Sinfonietta, Ensemble Modern and the Athelas Ensemble.
He recently conducted productions of The Rake's Progress at the Royal Opera House Covent Garden and Zurich Opera.  His most recent piano engagements include a recital at Carnegie Hall with Ian Bostridge, and an appearance with Alan Gilbert and the New York Philharmonic. In 2010 he undertook a piano recital tour that included Carnegie Hall, and London's Barbican Centre featured the premiere of his new piano work Concert Paraphrase from Powder Her Face.  2010/11 saw Adès return to Australia as an artist in residence at the Melbourne Festival.  Future plans include concerts with the Accademia Santa Cecilia in Rome, Barry's "The Importance of Being Earnest" with the Birmingham Contemporary Music Group, and a piano recital at the Festival de Saint Denis.

Between 1993 and 1995 he was Composer in Association with the Hallé Orchestra, which resulted in The Origin of the Harp (1994) and These Premises Are Alarmed for the opening of the Bridgewater Hall in 1996. Asyla (1997) was a Feeney Trust commission for Sir Simon Rattle and the CBSO who performed it at Symphony Hall in August 1998 in Rattle's last concert as Music Director. From 1999-2008 he was Artistic Director of the Aldeburgh Festival.

Adès' first opera, Powder Her Face (commissioned by Almeida Opera for the Cheltenham Festival in 1995), has been performed all around the world, was televised by Channel Four, and is available on a DVD as well as an EMI CD. Most of the composer's music has been recorded by EMI, with whom Adès has a contract as composer, pianist and conductor. Adès' second opera, The Tempest, was commissioned by the Royal Opera House and was premiered under the baton of the composer to great critical acclaim in February 2004. It was revived at Covent Garden in 2007 – again with the composer conducting and to a sold-out house – and has also been performed in Copenhagen, Strasbourg and Santa Fe. Recently released to outstanding reviews, The Tempest is also available on an EMI CD and in France, the disc was recently awarded the prestigious Diapason d'Or de l'année and the 2010 Classical Brit Award for Composer of the Year. In September 2005 his violin concerto, Concentric Paths, written for Anthony Marwood, was premiered at the Berliner Festspiele and the BBC Proms, with the Chamber Orchestra of Europe under his baton. His second orchestral work for Simon Rattle, Tevot, (2007) was commissioned by the Berliner Philharmoniker and Carnegie Hall. 

Appointed to the Richard and Barbara Debs Composer Chair at Carnegie Hall for 2007/8, he was featured as composer, conductor and pianist throughout that season.  Adès' most recent works include a 'Piano concerto with moving image' entitled In Seven Days, a collaboration with video artist Tal Rosner, commissioned by the Los Angeles Philharmonic and London's Southbank Centre and Lieux Retrouvés, a work for 'cello and piano written for Steven Isserlis and commissioned by Aldeburgh Festival and Wigmore Hall.

Adès' music has attracted numerous awards and prizes, including the prestigious Grawemeyer Award (in 2000, for Asyla), of which he is the youngest ever recipient. View biography in full page >

The multifaceted pianist Kirill Gerstein is rapidly ascending into classical music's highest ranks. With a masterful technique, discerning intelligence, and a musical curiosity that has led him to explore repertoire spanning centuries and numerous styles, he has proven to be one of today's most intriguing and versatile musicians.

Mr. Gerstein is the sixth recipient of the prestigious Gilmore Artist Award, presented every four years to an exceptional pianist who, regardless of age or nationality, possesses broad and profound musicianship and charisma and who desires and can sustain a career as a major international concert artist. Since receiving the award in 2010, Mr. Gerstein has shared his prize through the commissioning of boundary-crossing new works by Oliver Knussen, Chick Corea, Brad Mehldau, Timothy Andres and Alexander Goehr. Mr. Gerstein was also awarded First Prize at the 2001 Arthur Rubinstein Piano Competition in Tel Aviv, received a 2002 Gilmore Young Artist Award and a 2010 Avery Fisher Grant.

Highlights of his 2015-16 season in North America include performances of Scriabin's Prometheus: Poem of Fire with Ricardo Muti and the Chicago Symphony, Rachmaninoff Concerto No. 2 with Semyon Bychkov and the Berlin Philharmonic, Rachmaninoff Concerto No. 1 with the Cleveland Orchestra, and playing both of George Gershwin's piano concertos in the original jazz-band version to open New York's 92nd Street Y's 15/16 season; re-engagements with the Los Angeles Philharmonic as well as with the Toronto, Cincinnati, Dallas, Houston, Colorado, Utah and Oregon symphonies and the National Arts Centre Orchestra; a tour to Australia and New Zealand; his debut with the Royal Concertgebouw with concerts in Amsterdam and Frankfurt; a European tour with the Czech Philharmonic; and recitals in New York and Houston.

Kirill Gerstein's recent North American engagements include performances with the New York Philharmonic, the Philadelphia and Minnesota Orchestras, and the Boston, St. Louis, San Francisco, Atlanta, Baltimore, Detroit, Indianapolis and Montreal symphonies among others. He has also recently appeared at the Aspen Music Festival, Santa Fe Chamber Music Festival, Chicago's Grant Park, Tanglewood with the Boston Symphony, Blossom with the Cleveland Orchestra, and with the Philadelphia Orchestra at the Bravo! Vail Valley Festival, Mann Music Center and Saratoga; and performed in recital at New York's 92nd St. Y and Zankel Hall at Carnegie Hall, the Kennedy Center and in Boston, Toronto, Berkeley, Vancouver, Detroit, Miami and Princeton.

Internationally, Kirill Gerstein has played with such prominent European orchestras as the Czech, Munich, Rotterdam and London Philharmonics, the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra, Deutsches Symphonie-Orchester Berlin, Dresden Staatskappelle, Finnish Radio Orchestra, Tonkünstler Orchestra Vienna, WDR Symphony Orchestra Cologne and the Zurich Tonhalle, as well as with the NHK Symphony Orchestra in Tokyo. He has performed recitals in Paris, Prague, Hamburg, London's Wigmore Hall and Queen Elizabeth Hall, and at the Liszt Academy in Budapest. He made his Salzburg Festival debut playing solo and two piano works with Andras Schiff and has also appeared at the Lucerne and Jerusalem Chamber Music Festivals as well as at the Proms in London.

Mr. Gerstein's second solo recording featuring Mussorgsky's Pictures at an Exhibition and Schumann's Carnaval was released by Myrios Classics in June 2014. His first solo recording with works by Schumann, Liszt and Oliver Knussen, also for Myrios, was chosen by The New York Times as one of the best recordings of 2010. He also collaborated with Tabea Zimmerman on two recordings of sonatas for viola and piano for Myrios, released in February 2011 and November 2012. His most recent recording of the Tchaikovsky Piano Concerto No. 1 and the Prokofiev Piano Concerto No. 2 with the Deutsches Symphonie-Orchester Berlin was released by Myrios in March 2015 and is the first recording using the new critical edition recently completed by the Tchaikovsky Museum in Moscow using the composer's original second version.

Born in 1979 in Voronezh, Russia, Mr. Gerstein studied piano at a special music school for gifted children and taught himself to play jazz by listening to his parents' extensive record collection. At the age of 14, he came to the United States to study jazz piano as the youngest student ever to attend Boston's Berklee College of Music. After completing his studies in three years and following his second summer at the Boston University program at Tanglewood, Mr. Gerstein turned his focus back to classical music and moved to New York City to attend the Manhattan School of Music, where he studied with Solomon Mikowsky and earned both Bachelors and Masters of Music degrees by the age of 20. He continued his studies in Madrid with Dmitri Bashkirov and in Budapest with Ferenc Rados.

Mr. Gerstein became an American citizen in 2003 and divides his time between the United States and Germany.

Tickets are ( for students) and are available at www.baruch.cuny.edu/bpac.

Caleb Teicher & Company continues their investigation of American dance traditions on a stage filled with a thin layer of sand.

CT&Co's signature elements of musicality, humor, and warmth have won the hearts of audiences by connecting to America's rich and diverse physical heritage, whether tap dancing to Bach or swing dancing to Chet Baker, playing patty-cake to Sufjan Stevens or ballroom dancing to Ella Fitzgerald. Past engagements include Jacob's Pillow Dance Festival's Inside/Out Series, Gibney Dance, Queens College/Kupferberg Center for the Arts (through CUNY Dance Initiative), The Yard on Martha's Vineyard, LaMaMa Experimental Theater Club, and the American Tap Dance Foundation, among others.

David Ramirez: Bootleg Tour (Live Album Recording)
Event on 2018-06-14 20:00:00
Prolific singer and songwriter David Ramirez has earned a large and growing following for his soulful, introspective songs and passionate performances. Ramirez grew up in Houston, Texas, where he became interested in music and formed a band with his friends. Influenced by '90s alternative rock, Ramirez's group primarily played parties, but he got hooked on making music, and while attending college in Dallas, he heard an album by Ryan Adams and became fascinated by contemporary folk and influential singer/songwriters of the '60s and '70s, especially Bob Dylan. In Dallas, Ramirez formed a new band and began writing songs that fused pop music with his new lyrical influences, and in 2003 he released his first album, 11503 Lansbury. Two more albums would follow — 2005's Human and 2007's While Underneath Lights — before Ramirez chose to break up the band and moved to Nashville to focus on acoustic music.

In 2008, Ramirez traveled to Birmingham, Alabama and cut an EP, simply called Birmingham, that was the first step on his new musical journey. After leaving Nashville for Austin, Texas, Ramirez started touring extensively, playing as often as his circumstances would allow, and as he wrote more songs, he began releasing new material at an impressive rate, cranking out two albums (2009's American Soil and 2012's Apologies) and two EPs (2011's Strangetown and 2013's The Rooster) in the space of five years. Ramirez slowed down a bit after this period, though he still kept up a productive schedule, touring frequently and releasing Fables in early 2016. In December 2016, Ramirez dropped Bootleg Tour 2016, a live album recorded during several concert dates earlier that year.

Live in boot camps accommodate clients who need intense supervision and accountability for eating, sleeping, and most of all-training correctly. A firm commitment is required on the part of the client in order to comply with such a regimen. Customary in the fitness industry, services are prepaid upon signup. Financial commitment plays a strong factor in following through once the self-doubts begin.

FIVE hours of exercise daily?

How much exercise is an unfit, overweight person capable of participating in, anyway? Scenes of obese contestants on the Biggest Loser TV show bring up these questions. What is not shown is the behind the scenes pre-conditioning workouts that basically get you in shape to start getting in shape. There is a progression to the activities as with any good fitness program. The program begins at the level of the participant’s capability.

Did anyone get the license number of that truck that hit me?

Then it hits you. You wake up and, “whoa!” You really feel your body. There will be an initial period of muscular soreness that will come in waves of delayed onset. That is, not so much the next day but the day after that will be when you feel the most discomfort. Movement is the best remedy for the soreness and you will be getting plenty more movement. Depending on one’s attitude toward the body discomforts, this can be an encouragement indicating that results are forthcoming. Some people will feel guilty for letting themselves go physically and they will view the discomfort as self-punishment.

Support and encouragement are necessary to get through the second week.

Usually, after the first week in a month long program the client starts to realize how much effort they have made and they become overwhelmed at the thought of continuing. This is a natural stage that many go through. However, the first stage is the most difficult. The initial accomplishment in making a change for oneself is what carries them through the hard phase. Then, the body begins to respond.

Hey, I see a muscle when I flex!

Most individuals can recognize results within a week to ten days. Muscle tone, and excess water weight changes become apparent. Then, within 2-3 weeks there is no doubt that the mirror is becoming a daily friend and your best encouragement. Others will notice and comment at this phase about the noticeable difference in your appearance.

The results you begin to realize at this point will make your program self-perpetuating. Once you have established the 3-week habit, plus gained the know-how and confidence in your new health regimen there will be no turning back.

After all, you have worked hard and are worthy of results to show for it. Why would you give up your goal? Giving up usually doesn’t happen after a person has actually learned to live in bootcamp. You will actually make different choices based on maintaining your hard-earned efforts. Your confidence will soar; you can hold your own in any gym or exercise group. You are a live-in boot camp graduate and have the stuff that it takes to keep it up.
