Gabrielle Owwell, who occasionally writes for this blog, created a music video for her youtube channel featuring a familiar character: At the end I just wanted him to look at the camera and say, “It is good.” Funny how we all look at this person and immediately think he’s deranged, but put the same character [Read More…]
Thanks to Mythicist Milwaukee for getting the big video of the event up so I could crop this! It was also nice to treat music professionally again, for the first time in years, to push myself to sing as well as I could. I ran scales all week. I got a copy of the music and [Read More…]
For two dollars you can support victims of the Orlando shooting and get some sweet music (please share).
Some of you may have heard of Zack Bresler. If not, he was the Audio/Video Coordinator and Videography Team Lead for the Reason Rally. He’s also quite a musician. He’s spent the last two years as an instructor and the director of the Audio Engineering and Music Technology program a Iowa Western Community College in Council Bluffs, [Read More…]

Remember back when Mike Huckabee held that rally for Kim Davis and used Survivor’s Eye Of The Tiger without permission? The band actually posted to their Facebook page: “NO!

As most of you know, I spent the last weekend in DC at the Reason Rally. It was loads of fun. If I had to guess, at peak there were between 12,000 and 15,000 people in attendance. It was hard to gauge because I think people treated it differently than Reason Rally. In 2012 people [Read More…]
Good morning, all! I’m still alive, but working on a major project I intend to post around Tuesday. This morning I, and a couple of my voice students, will be the musical guests at Kansas City Oasis. Here’s what is going to be sung: Ty (baritone): This Is The Moment from Jekyll & Hyde Anne [Read More…]
Ok, it’s actually less than a minute, but there was singing and dancing. The wife broke it down with the dance moves: Then “Living On A Prayer” came on. This video constitutes about the longest period without me having a coughing fit in the last two weeks. Also, having bronchitis is a great time to [Read More…]
Mississippi hasn’t learned from North Carolina’s example. While NC hemorrhages money over their recent anti-LGBT bill, Mississippi passed one of their own allowing public businesses to deny service to a portion of the public — you know, the very same thing the Civil Rights Act fixed way back in the day. The first drop of [Read More…]
When a voice student doesn’t show up I pretty much get to spend a full half hour rocking out to whatever I want. This last Sunday it was “Listening To You” from Tommy. Rock operas like Tommy, Jesus Christ Superstar, and Rent were my sort of gateway drug to Classical singing. It turns out that [Read More…]
