Grant Stewart Quartet - Smalls Jazz Club
March 17, 2019 - New York

Born in Toronto, Canada on June 4, 1971, Grant Stewart was exposed to the music of Charlie Parker, Wardell Gray and Coleman Hawkins by his father, a high-school English teacher and semiprofessional guitarist. Father and son often played together for hours on end. It was through these early experiences and his father's encouragement that Stewart first developed a strong ear for melody, style, and improvisation. He began with the alto saxophone at age 10, and when he was 14 his first teacher, noted Toronto bandleader Pete Schofield, invited him to play professionally in Schofield's Big Band. At 17 he switched to the tenor saxophone and was soon playing with such master saxophonists as Pat Labarbara and Bob Mover. Stewart considers Mover to be one of his greatest teachers and among his strongest influences along with Sonny Rollins, John Coltrane, Don Byas, and Lester Young. Since moving to New York City at the age of 19, Stewart has studied with such masters as Donald Byrd, Barry Harris, and Joe Lovano, and performed with Curtis Fuller, John Hendricks, Clark Terry, Etta Jones, Bill Charlap, Frank Gant, Dan Barret, Bob Mover, Brad Mehldau, Russell Malone, Larry Goldings, Peter Bernstei...

Jon Beshay Quartet - Smalls Jazz Club
March 17, 2019 - New York

"I play music because I like to listen to music, and when I'm playing I'm in charge of what I'm hearing." Jonathan Beshay-jazz saxophonist, bandleader, and composer-says that there's no other agenda when his group takes the bandstand. Fortunately for audiences, Beshay likes to hear good music. His first role models were the old masters of jazz (John Coltrane, Charlie Parker, and Lester Young) but it would be a mistake to assume that modern music isn't fair game for Beshay. Artists such as Walter Smith and John Ellis make their way onto his list of influences, all uttered in the same breath as Coleman Hawkins and Woody Shaw. When pressed, he compares his musical process to the late Mulgrew Miller's; something that is rooted deep down in the history of jazz, but has blossomed outward into an art that is unique and new.

Harolyn Blackwell Voice Master Class in Miller Recital Hall - Manhattan School of Music
March 18, 2019 - New York

Harolyn Blackwell (born November 23, 1955) is an American lyric coloratura soprano who has performed in many of the world's finest opera houses, concert halls, and theaters in operas, oratorios, recitals, and Broadway musicals. Initially known for her work within musical theater during the early 1980s, Blackwell moved into the field of opera and by 1987 had established herself as an artist within the soubrette repertoire in many major opera houses both in the United States and in Europe. Feeling that she was being "type cast" into one particular kind of role, Blackwell strove to establish herself within the lyric coloratura repertoire beginning in the mid-1990s. With the aid of such companies as Seattle Opera, Blackwell successfully made this move and is now an interpreter of such roles as Lucia in Donizetti's Lucia di Lammermoor and Olympia in Offenbach's Les contes d'Hoffman. She has also periodically returned to musical theater performances throughout her career in staged productions, concert work, and recitals. Blackwell is known for her interpretations and recordings of the works of Leonard Bernstein

We were told to write a bio for our band DBUK, my first response was to question my knowledge on biographies vs. autobiographies, implying their same lack of knowledge. Their humorless response was sending me this template as guidance. Here is how you want to structure your band's "bio/one sheet" and what content should be in it: 1 Band logo – DBUK. 2 Name of the band – See above. 3 Member names and what they do – Rebecca Vera, Vet Tech; Lord Dwight Pentacost, Sales; Slim Cessna, CEO Of SlimCessnaMusic.com; Munly J Munly, Unemployed. 4 What kind of music you play (DO NOT mention that you "sound like Blink 182 meets Eminem!" When you compare yourself to another band, you automatically set the mood for the potential listener) - Good...we play good music, loved by fans from Box Car Racer to Yelawolf. 5 Where to find your music: PureVolume, ReverbNation, Bandcamp, SoundCloud, etc. - Yes, all of these, and probably iTunes, as well as at our new record label, SCACUNINCOPORATED 6 Where the band is from – Denver Colorado. 7 Average age of the band – That’s an easy one, 45.25 – though I might have missed Rebecca’s last birthday, so this might be off, and I might find out soon....

March 24, 2019 - New York

2019 marks the 16th Anniversary of the Colon Cancer Challenge and we are thrilled to be returning to Icahn Stadium on Randall’s Island Across the United States teams of families, friends, co-workers and local and national corporations will come together to raise awareness of colorectal cancer, support those battling the disease and raise funds for the Colon Cancer Challenge Foundation strategic initiatives of Public Awareness, Prevention, Screening and Research. Why Take the Challenge? While we have made great progress in reducing incidence and death rates of those 50 or older over the last decade through the prevention and early detection of colorectal cancer through screening – the simple fact is colorectal cancer is still the third most commonly diagnosed cancer and the second leading cause of cancer-related death. And, incidence rates and death of those under 50 have increased at an alarming rate each year. In 2018 over 135,000 (estimated) Americans will be diagnosed with colorectal cancer and over 50,000 Americans will lose their battle with the disease. Most frustrating is the fact that most of these cases could be prevented with early detection. If caught early the ... (read more)

New York based Jazz Guitarist JC Stylles (aka Jason Campbell) first touched a guitar around 7 years of age, and was introduced to the world of jazz in the most unlikely of places, that being in the rainforests of Kuranda, a tiny, predominantly aboriginal town in the tropics of Far North Queensland Australia, via his stepfathers jazz record collection. At 16 years of age he left the rainforests for Sydney where significantly in his development, he had the opportunity to attend 2 shows a night for nearly a week in front row seats of the touring jazz guitar great George Benson.

Through May 23, 2019 - New York

Exciting news. We're inviting you to one big girly sleepover, where you share weird secrets about your body and let out all your feelings. Except, it's an hour, and guys can come. And we think the invitation is long overdue. There are SO many things that women go through with cheesy grins on our faces like nothing's happening! That's what we're expected to do, isn't it? Because if we complain about it, or cry about it, or really say anything about it, we're just being "girls." Welp, F that noise. This storytelling and show is an open conversation about the things we usually hide – FINALLY – cause the painfully real stuff is the funny stuff.
