Her music is categorized under piano rock, art pop, alternative rock and electronica genres. As a musician, she can play different instruments like the piano, harpsichord, Hammond organ, clavichord, clavinet and a lot more.

Tori Amos started her career in 1986 – she founded the ‘Y Kant Tori Read’ music group but after an album and two singles, the group separated. Tori then pursued her solo career.

Her 9th studio album was titled ‘American Doll Posse’ – released in May of 2007. It owned the number 2 spot on the U.S. Billboard Top Digital Albums and Top Rock Albums.

Paul Simon Cedar Park Tickets

Info about Paul Simon:
A very successful musician has recently announced his Fall US Tour… Any idea who?

Clue: He is the ‘Simon’ in Simon & Garfunkel…

Yep. That’s him… Paul Simon, ladies and gentlemen! This is very exciting, my friends!

Paul Simon is a well-known singer, songwriter, musician and record producer. We all first knew him as Simon from the American Duo ‘Simon & Garfunkel’. His music plays around the genres of folk rock, folk-pop, soft rock and world fusion.

Paul Simon: Early years

“That’s nice, Paul. You have a nice voice”.

These were the words of Paul Simon’s father after hearing him sing the first time in his room. According to a source, this really encouraged Paul to pursue his career in singing. He idolized his father well enough. I think it’s very sweet. And are we thankful that he did at that. The music industry will not be the same without the influence of Paul Simon as a solo artist and from the duo ‘Simon & Garfunkel’.

[ad#300×250 L-side]

Paul Simon’s singing career started at his very young age. At the age of 11, he was already in acquaintance with Art Garfunkel and they would perform together in their high school’s productions like graduation programs and school dances. Basically, they were influenced by The Everly Brothers (famous country rock and roll duo).

Paul Simon: Simon & Garfunkel

Before the name ‘Simon & Garfunkel’ was born, they used to play under the name ‘Tom & Jerry’ but come 1964, when they signed a contract with Columbia Records, they changed their name to ‘Simon & Garfunkel’. The duo was able to release five albums from which a lot of number 1 singles (that are still sang and used until now) were derived from. Some of their notable singles were ‘The Sound of Silence’, ‘Mrs. Robinson’, and ‘Bridge over Troubled Water’. The duo received a lot of awards as well – several Grammys, Brit Awards, and just come 1990, they were inducted into the ‘Rock and Roll Hall of Fame’. The two went their separate ways in 1970.

Paul Simon’s Solo Career

After the ‘Simon & Garfunkel’ separation, Paul Simon started to pursue his solo career. In 1972, he was able to release a self-titled album (second one as a solo artist). His first solo album was actually ‘The Paul Simon Songbook’ which was released in 1965.

In 1973, Paul Simon released his 3rd solo album titled ‘There Goes Rhymin’ Simon’ which received 5 stars rating from professional music critics. The album charted number 2 on the U.S. Billboard Pop Albums and number 4 on the UK Albums chart. In 1975, he released another album, making it his 5th album, titled ‘Still Crazy After All These Years’. This album owned the number 1 position on the US Billboard Pop Albums. ‘Heart and Bones’ was his 6th studio album which was released in 1983. Following that was ‘Graceland’ which was released in 1986. The album ‘Graceland’ charted number 1 on Australian, Dutch, French, New Zealand, Swiss and UK album charts, number 2 on German Albums charts, and number 3 on U.S. Billboard Pop albums. This album also won two Grammys – the 1987 ‘Album of the Year’ and 1988 ‘Record of the Year’.

Paul’s other albums were the following: ‘The Rhythm of the Saints’ in 1990, ‘Songs from The Capeman’ in 1997, ‘You’re the One’ in 2000, ‘Surprise’ in 2006, and the latest album which was released in April of this year (2011), ‘So Beautiful or So What’. This album charted number 4 on US Billboard 200 and Swedish Albums charts and number 2 on Norwegian Albums charts. This album also received a 4-stars rating from Rolling Stone.

Paul Simon was able to receive a lot of awards and honors. He won 12 Grammy Awards, and received a Grammy Hall of Fame Award for ‘Bridge over Trouble Water’ in 1998.

Did you know? That Paul is an advocate of children’s music education? Back in 1970, he held auditions for a workshop that will hone young songwriters’ talents. He did select six young songwriters at that.

Paul Simon is also an official sponsor, along with many other musicians, of ‘Little Kids Rock’ – an organization built to provide instruments and lessons to kids in public schools. Paul is also one of the co-founders of the ‘Children’s Health Fund’ and ‘Children’s Health Project’.

Ron White ~ Austin Paramount Theatre November 4

Ron White Performance

Paramount Theatre – Austin, TX

Ron White - Behavioral Problems
Ron White - Behavioral Problems

Funny guy Ron White in Austin, TX.  He’ll will be at Paramount Theatre on November 4. This is great news because the Paramount is one of our fav venues.  Good, intimate setting for Ron.

Ron White Austin Tickets

more about Ron White: Are you ready for ‘Tater Salad’? Yes, the one and only – Ronald White or just simply Ron White is on tour.

Ron White was born in 1956 here in Texas. He is a well-known and successful stand-up comedian concentrating on the country comedy, observational comedy and satire genres. The ‘Tater Salad’ nickname was given to him by his fellow sailors back when he served in the Navy. He has a real fondness for potato salad …

Ron White and the comedy

“… You can’t fix stupid”

This is Ron White’s famous punchline when he’s doing his standup. He is also known to perform with a cigar on the right hand and a scotch on the left. You may also remember him from ‘Blue Collar Comedy Tour’ where he and his 3 comedian friends (Jeff Foxworthy, Bill Engvall, and Larry the Cable Guy) performed as a comedy troupe. They were a big hit!

Having a career in comedy was Ron White’s dream. After serving the Navy, he decided to pursue his dream job; he performed from gig to gig which was very nice for experience but didn’t really help him that much financially. He had to sell windows on the side to make ends meet. It was tough but as they say, “Patience is a virtue” and “Good things come to those who wait”.

[ad#300×250 L-side]

Come January 2000, Ron White found the gig that made him successful – the ‘Blue Collar Comedy Tour’. The tour ended in March 2003. As I have mentioned before, they were a big hit. The fans love the four performing together and even when they are performing separately.

In November of 2003, Ron White released his first comedy CD titled ‘Drunk in Public’. It received a 4.5-stars rating (5 stars being the highest), and charted number two on the U.S. Billboard Top Comedy Albums and U.S. Billboard Top Heatseekers. In 2006, Ron White released another album titled ‘You Can’t Fix Stupid’ which received a 4-stars rating from professional critics. This album owned the number 1 position on the U.S. Billboard Top Comedy Albums. Come 2009, he released a DVD and album titled ‘Behavioral Problems’ which peaked number 1 on the U.S. Billboard Top Comedy Albums. His other CDs/comedy releases were ‘Tater Salad aka. Busted in Des Moines’ and ‘They Call Me Tater Salad’.

Ron White can also be seen in TV shows and films. He appeared in TV shows like ‘Reno 911!’, ‘Kath & Kim’, and ‘12 Miles of Bad Road’, and on the film ‘Sex and the City 2’. He also portrayed a supporting role in the recent comedy movie ‘Horrible Bosses’.

Did you know? That there is a ‘Ron White Day’? Oh, yes, there is! Well, it was given to him here in Texas. The Texas legislative officials appointed April 27, 2009 to be the ‘Ron White Day’.

Ron White was also able to write a book, “Ron “Tater Salad” White: I Had the Right to Remain Silent…But I Didn’t Have the Ability”. It was released in June of 2006 under Penguin Books.

Beauty & the Beast ~ Austin Bass Hall Dec. 14-18

Disney’s Beauty and the Beast Live

Bass Concert Hall – Austin, TX

Austin Event: Disney’s Beauty and the Beast
Where: Bass Concert Hall
When is the Event: December 14-18, 2011



Beauty and the Beast Poster

Disney’s Beauty and the Beast:
“Tale as old as time, true as it can be… Barely even friends then somebody bends unexpectedly…

Just a little change, small, to say the least… Both a little scared… neither one prepared …Beauty and the Beast”

What a classic tune. Why am I singing this song? Well, well, well. Disney’s Beauty and the Beast will be in town.

I’m just merely preparing myself. Oh, it’s going to be a wonderful performance. Let’s get to know the musical a little bit better, shall we?

Disney’s Beauty and the Beast
Up close and ‘almost’ personal:

Cartoons, animations, the rendition of movies/cartoons from 1946 down to the latest 2009 film, we’ve all seen the numerous versions of Beauty and the Beast. For some time, there was even a TV series with the same name. Well, it was a sort of updated version of the fairy tale.

And most especially if you have a kid, you must have seen the film of Disney’s Beauty and the Beast a million times – it doesn’t really get old to them (to be completely honest, it doesn’t really get old to me, too. I wonder why?) All of them were great in their ways and on how they presented the classic fairy tale. But this time, we’re talking about Disney’s Beauty and the Beast musical (which again, if you have a kid, you will keep on getting tickets for the show – every year. The story doesn’t get old to them – and, again, to me.)

Disney’s Beauty and the Beast musical happens to be the 8th longest running Broadway production in history. This musical is, of course, based on the 1991 film produced by Disney.

Did you know? The first Disney’s Beauty and the Beast performance was here in Texas back in 1993? It was performed in Houston under Disney Theatricals and Theatre Under The Stars production.

The music in Disney’s Beauty and the Beast is arranged and composed by Alan Menken. The lyrics were done by the two popular lyricists in the country – Howard Ashman and Tim Rice. The screenplay was written by the same person who co-wrote the one for ‘The Lion King’ – it was Linda Woolverton. Alan Menken is a well-known musical theatre composer and musician (pianist). He also composed the music for ‘Alladin’, ‘The Little Mermaid’, ‘Pocahontas’, ‘Hercules’, ‘The Last Castle’, ‘The Hunchback of Notre Dame’, ‘Home on the Range’, ‘Tangled’, and ‘Enchanted’. These people are purely genius, I say. Their compositions/lyrics/screenplay are just incredible, imaginative and colorful.

Currently, Disney’s Beauty and the Beast cast members are the following: Dane Agostinis (Beast), Emily Behny (Belle), Jen Bechter (Madame de la Grande Bouche), Michael Haller (Lumiere), Logan Denninghoff (Gaston), Chandon Jones (Babette, Dance Captain), Julia Louise Hosack (Mrs. Potts), Noah Jones and Sebastian Hedges Thomas (Chip), Andrew Kruep (LeFou), Benjamin Lovell (Cogsworth), Christopher Spencer (Maurice), David Baur, Jeff Brooks, Carly Casey, Brittany Conigatti, Brian Kess, Caroline Kittrell, Amanda Grace Holt, Kolby Kindle, Matt Kopec, Caitlyn Leary, Carter Lynch, Nick Nelson, Jessica Lorion, Michael Whitney, Sarah Claire Smith, Taylor Hilt Mitchell, Lauren Palmeri and Mandy Striph.

Disney’s Beauty and the Beast plot

Oh, we all know this so I’ll be short and quick.

Basically, the prince needs to learn how to love and be loved back – even with his ‘beastly’ appearance. How the prince landed to that curse? Well, what else? With the help of his cold-hearted attitude and I-only-care-about-myself mindset, he made an attractive enchantress (who was posing as a poor beggar when she asked for help from the prince) really mad that she turned him into that creature. Well, not only that, she also turned the prince’s servants into various objects (Now I’m wondering what would be the best object to be… teacup? Cabinet? Too dull? Anyway.) For the record, the prince was gorgeous and young, for that matter. So that is the dilemma. And we all know how it works out for him and for Belle – oh, the ever amazing and pretty Belle.

For me, Disney’s Beauty and the Beast is definitely romantic. I mean, true love, people. This is really the fairy tale for the whole family – yes, even Uncle Earl. It is a musical that will surely awaken your fairy-tale beliefs that true love really exists somewhere out there. There’s a lot of lesson to be learned from this musical, indeed.

Chamber Orchestra Kremlin Austin Tickets

Info about Chamber Orchestra Kremlin:
Have you seen Chamber Orchestra Kremlin perform? If you haven’t then this is your chance! Chamber Orchestra Kremlin is on tour and they’ll be playing here in Texas.

Chamber Orchestra Kremlin, an orchestra from Russia (and definitely one of the greatest ensembles from the said country), was founded in 1991 by Misha Rachlevsky. He is also the music director and conductor of the orchestra. The orchestra includes the most promising and excellent – and young – string players. They have released over thirty CD albums already. And the demand for their performance is through the roof. To be honest, we are so lucky to be a part of their tour as they really have a busy schedule in Moscow – they always participate in festivals and hold concerts on a regular basis.

Chamber Orchestra Kremlin’s performance definitely touched a lot of hearts already. As an orchestra, they are known for the liveliness and passion in their performances. They have a huge fan base not just in Moscow but globally.

Dolly Parton - Better Day

Your favorite: Dolly Parton – Cedar Park, TX showing at Cedar Park Center October 7. Happy days! This will be an awesome show at Cedar Park Center, just north of Austin.

Dolly Parton Cedar Park Tickets

Dolly Parton Info:
Are you ready for ‘The Queen of Country Music’? Oh, yes, the one and only, Dolly Parton! She is really famous. Operative word being ‘IS’. Still IS famous. She is a legend. And I may be the first one to say this (although, I doubt it), she is a legend NOT only in music… Let’s get to know her a bit better here.

Dolly Rebecca Parton, in the biz – she is only known as Dolly Parton or just plain ‘Dolly’, was born in Tennessee. And I love her accent, really. They have a big family – she has 11 siblings (she being the 4th born child). Dolly Parton discovered her talent at an early age. She was very into music so she would perform on radio and TV programs in their area. No wonder that at age 13, she was able to record on Goldband Records- a label from Louisiana.

After graduating high school, she moved to Nashville (where country music rocks!). Well, I would love to be on Nashville. Seriously. Anyway, back to Dolly.

Dolly Parton, after moving from her birthplace, became a famous songwriter. She wrote songs that was later charted on Billboards. After that, she concentrated on her singing career.

Dolly Parton – A glimpse of her many albums

Did you know? Dolly Parton was able to release 41 studio albums… 41. Four – one. That’s a lot. And to think that all of those albums received major success… Gosh. Without a doubt, an 800 word-article doesn’t give her enough justice… but I will try.

Here are some of her notable albums. Her very first album was released in 1967. It was titled ‘Hello, I’m Dolly’. It ranked number 11 on the U.S. Top Country Albums (which was really not bad for a first album). This album received a 4.5 stars rating from Allmusic. Other albums were the following: ‘Just Because I’m a Woman’ in 1968, ‘In the Good Old Days (When Times Were Bad)’ in 1969, ‘My Blue Ridge Mountain Boy’ also in 1969 (ranked number 6 on the U.S. Top Country Albums chart), ‘The Fairest of Them All’ in 1970, ‘Heartbreaker’ in 1978 (peaked number 1 on U.S. Billboard Top Country Albums and Canadian RPM Country Albums), ‘Dolly, Dolly, Dolly’ in 1980 (peaked number on Canadian RPM Country Albums), ‘Slow Dancing with the Moon’ in 1993 (peaked number 4 on U.S. Billboard Top Country Albums), ‘Those Were the Days’ in 2005 (peaked number 2 on Top Independent Albums), ‘Backwoods Barbie’ in 2008 (peaked number 2 on U.S. Billboard Top Country Albums and U.S. Billboard Independent Albums), and the recent album released – ‘Better Day’ in 2011 (June). It landed the number 1 position on UK Country Albums Chart and number 5 on Australian Country Albums Chart.

Now, Dolly Parton is not only known for her singing and songwriting career (not to mention the record producing gig that she has)… She is also a well-known actress – a great one, indeed. She was on the movie ‘Nine to Five’ where she portrayed a role of a secretary. She was actually nominated as the ‘New Star Of The Year – Actress’ and ‘Best Actress in a Motion Picture Musical or Comedy’ at the Golden Globe Awards for that role.

To be honest, I first saw her portray the role of ‘Truvy Jones’ as one of the girls from ‘Steel Magnolias’ (1989). I really loved her acting so I dug in to the other films that she was in. She played the role of ‘Mona Stangley’ on the movie ‘The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas’ where she, again, was nominated for a Golden Globe Award. Her other notable portrayals were in ‘Miss Congeniality 2: Armed and Fabulous’ as herself (just a cameo appearance), ‘Straight Talk’ as Shirlee Kenyon and the 2011 animated movie ‘Gnomeo & Juliet’ as the voice of Dolly Gnome’.

Dolly Parton had her fair share of TV appearances and acting performances as well. She played the role of Katrina Eloise Murphy on ‘The Magic School Bus’, a TV series in 1996. Also, in ‘Reba’, a family sitcom, she played as Dolly Majors in 2005. And, of course, we all know about ‘Aunt Dolly’ from Hannah Montana. Gosh, I always loved it whenever she appeared on Hannah Montana.

Some of Dolly Parton’s Awards

Out of 45 Grammy Award nominations, she was able to win 8 of them. Eight. Grammy. Awards. Hu-hum. That’s really a lot already. Winning one makes you a very very known person. What more with eight, right? Also, she was able to win 10 awards from the Country Music Association and 7 awards from Academy of Country Music.

Dolly Parton is timeless. She is. She will be dear to our hearts forever. She has given the phrase ‘country music’ a new meaning which led other country music singers today to its path… and I truly believe that her concert here in Texas will be one of her very best! So go and get your tickets now. It’s almost gone!

Are you ready for the ‘The Gentle Giant of Country Music’? Yes, Don Williams will be on tour here in Texas and we are really looking forward to it! He had his farewell concert in 2006 but was back on tour since 2010!

Don Williams is a legendary singer and songwriter of country, country rock and pop music. He plays guitar, piano and bass. His voice has a smooth bass baritone quality which led him to being called ‘The Gentle Giant’.

Being able to play the guitar since his teen years, he was able to form his own band called ‘The Strangers Two’ in 1964. Soon after that, Don Williams became a member of the ‘Pozo-Seco Singers’ which is a folk band. Then, he started his solo career in which he was able to release 30 studio albums and 9 compilation albums.

[ad#300×250 L-side]

Some of Don Williams’ notable albums were ‘Time’ in 1966, ‘I Can Make it With You’ in 1967, ‘You’re My Best Friend’ in 1975, ‘Country Boy’ in 1977, ‘Especially For You’ in 1981, ‘Café California’ in 1984, ‘True Love’ in 1990, ‘Follow Me Back Home’ in 2002, and ‘My Heart to You’ in 2004.

Don Williams certainly wasn’t called a ‘Giant’ for nothing. His songs were greatly accepted and loved by many. Here are some of his singles that peaked number 1. ‘I Wouldn’t Want to Live If You Didn’t Love Me’ in 1974, ‘You’re My Best Friend’ in 1975, ‘I’m Just a Country Boy’ in 1977, ‘Lord, I Hope This Day Is Good’ in 1981, and ‘Heartbeat in the Darkness’ in 1986.

Don Williams won a lot of awards, as well. One of his notable wins was ‘Male Vocalist of the Year’ award from the Country Music Association Awards. Early last year, he was inducted into the ‘Country Music Hall of Fame’ by the Country Music Association.

Roger Daltrey Austin Tickets

the scoop about Roger Daltrey:
Roger Daltrey, my friends, is on tour here in Austin. Isn’t that great? We all know him as the lead singer of ‘The Who’ band. He is also the founder of the said band. Roger Daltrey is one talented musician that plays around the rock, art rock, hard rock, and power pop genres.

He is also an actor – you may remember seeing him in different kinds of filmography such as ads, films and television shows. Roger played the lead role of Tommy Walker in the 1975 musical film titled ‘Tommy’. This movie was based on the band’s album ‘Tommy’ (released in 1969). Another notable movie role that he portrayed was Jimmy Nolan in the 2006 gangster movie titled ‘Johnny Was’. I’ve seen this movie and I can say that he played the part well, and it’s quite interesting, really.

Now, Roger Daltrey is on tour and he’s actually going to perform his band’s (The Who) album ‘Tommy’ and some other classics from the said band. As a solo musician, Daltrey was able to release a total of 8 albums. The first one was titled ‘Daltrey’ and was released in 1973. The album’s singles ‘Giving It All Away and ‘The Way Of The World’ peaked number five in the UK charts.

[ad#300×250 L-side]

The other albums were ‘Ride a Rock Horse’ in 1975, ‘One of the Boys’ in 1977, ‘McVicar’ in 1980, ‘Parting Should Be Painless’ in 1984, ‘Under a Raging Moon’ in 1985, ‘Can’t Wait to See the Movie’ in 1987, and ‘Rocks in the Head’ in 1992.

Roger Daltrey, as I’ve mentioned, is a very talented man. He was able to receive a Grammy Award with the Chieftains in 1991. The award was for their performance on the album (recorded from concert) of ‘An Irish Evening: Live at the Grand Opera House, Belfast’.

Buckethead Austin Tickets

Bio of Buckethead:
Buckethead’s mysterious background still spooks us but his music is something you won’t fail to appreciate. This season Buckethead is dedicating part of his musical production to some of his favorite sports models like Lebron James in his tribute track Lebrontron. Lebrontron has been a hit and is doing several rounds in online music websites.

Behind that white face with a mock bucket on the head is a skilled songwriter, artiste and instrument player. Bucket head is said to have heard a rough childhood according to his blogs and his main passion and consolation was through playing the guitar. But little did he know he will end up being one of the throbbing guitarists we have in the showbiz. It’s amazing how the spooky looking artiste has a warm heart for fans and fellow showbiz icons. Bucket Head has featured in the Les Paul Concerts that are a tribute to the Les Paul Band whose founder passed away. He also has a dedication single for Michael Jackson, The Homing Beacon.

Captain Sig and The Hillstrand Brothers Austin Tickets

Info about Captain Sig and The Hillstrand Brothers:
Ever wanted to know the ‘real deal’ of the famous documentary/reality TV series – Deadliest Catch? Well, ladies and gentlemen, the opportunity is here in Austin! Captain Sig and The Hillstrand Brothers are going to be in town. Thrilled? We definitely are!

[ad#300×250 L-side]

Sigurd Jonny Hansen or Captain Sig runs the ‘Northwestern’ fishing vessel. Being surrounded by his family who are descendants of Norwegian ancestry fisherman, he began to fish at an early age of 14 and started being in-charge of the ‘Northwestern’, when captains are not around, at the age of 22. At the age of 24, he’s a full-time captain of the vessel.

Johnathan and Andy Hillstrand or The Hillstrand Brothers are the captains of the crab fishing vessel called ‘FV Time Bandit’. The boat was actually designed by their father. Johnathan is a Harley-Davidson-rider type of guy but really, on the inside (attested by his friends), he is a “teddy bear”. Andy, on the other hand, is a horse trainer when he is at their ranch in Indiana. He is actually tagged as a ‘horse whisperer’. Cool trivia, huh?

These ‘superheroes’ of the sea have a lot of things to share with us. Usually, during their tours, they have Q&A’s and interesting and very-engaging stories to share. They are full of advice when it comes to fishing and just living outdoors – to be exact, on a tight ship where the weather and atmosphere are not always your friend. Their previous shows have garnered a lot of very awesome reviews. One of their fans said that the captains were warm, funny and, most importantly, real. They say the truth and not the flower-covered facts. A group of fans said that the round table of the captains was really an enjoyable discussion which allowed them to see the other side of the captains (coz they usually are super serious on Deadliest Catch).

The Go-Go’s Austin Tickets

More on The Go-Go’s:
Formed in 1978, the Go-Go’s are an American all female band made up of:

Belinda Carlisle – lead vocals
Charlotte Caffey – lead guitar, backing vocals, and keyboards
Jane Wiedlin – vocals and rhythm guitar
Kathy Valentine – bass and backing vocals
Gina Schock – drums and percussion

They are the first ever all-girl band that wrote its own songs as well as play their own instruments to make it to the top of the Billboard album charts. [ad#300×250 L-side]

The album that has given them their huge success is called ‘Beauty and the Beat’. This album has reached number one in the Billboard 200 albums chart and has sold more than 3 million copies thereby reaching a double platinum status. It’s actually one of the most successful debut albums ever. This album was released in 1981 and among the songs that topped charts worldwide are ‘We Got the Beat’, which turned into an enormous club hit in Europe then later in the U.S., and ‘Our Lips are Sealed’. Just last May 17, 2011, ‘Beauty and the Beat’ was released remastered and lengthened for a 30th anniversary edition still by the same company that first released it IRS Records label. Presently, members of the group are busy with each of their own current projects.

The Go-Go’s were originally formed in Los Angeles, California as a 4-member punk band and started out playing at most punk rock venues in the area. Two members were added to them: Caffey and Schock, who replaced original drummer Elissa Bello on drums. Because of the additional members, their music changed toward a more familiar pop sound. And again, on December 1980, original member Margot Olaverria, bassist, got hepatitis A and was replaced by Valentine. Another reason Olaverria was dismissed from the band because she frequently missed rehearsals due to her not-so-happy reaction in the band’s move toward pop.

Since 1999, the Go-Go’s have been touring constantly. But, on February 2010, it was announced on Carlisle’s Facebook page that that year will have the Farewell tour. It was cancelled though as Wiedlin got knee injury and required time for recovery.

More about David Benoit:

Born and raised in California, David Benoit has made a successful career as a composer, pianist,and producer. He has received five nominations for the Grammy Awards. Aside from his career in smooth jazz/jazz fusion, he also acts as the music director for the Asian American Symphony Orchestra. Quite a handful this American artist has.
[ad#300×250 L-side]
Benoit started his first try in music at the age of 13, when he studied piano under Marya Cressy Wright and continued on this training with Abraham Fraser. He later concentrated on composition and theory at El Camino College where he built on a foundation on orchestration, studying there with Donald Nelligan. He started studying music conducting with Heiichiro Ohyama, who is the assistant conductor of LA Philharmonic and continued on with other names in the field.

His career in musical directing began in 1976, becoming a conductor for diva Lainie Kazan. Later on, he continued on the same track with singer/actresses Connie Stevens and Ann Margaret.

Freedom at Midnight was released in 1987. This debut album with GRP Records went to number 5 in the chart on Billboard’s Top Contemporary Jazz Albums. It was on this album that Benoit said ‘Everything came together’ at an interview. Waiting for Spring was released in 1989 and this time, it hit number one on Billboard’s Top Jazz Albums chart. Another successful album reach that chart on number 2 called Shadows and was released in 1991. The following year, he
made an album dedicated to one of his major influences, Bill Evans, and released Letter to Evan.

What you can mostly observe in his songs is that they have a string section and this is very notable on the album released in 1997 called American Landscape and in the 2005 album Orchestral Stories. According to him, he dreams to make a symphonic album.

Benoit has made a tribute to the late Charles M. Schulz, creator of Peanuts, and in 2000 released the album Here’s To You: Charlie Brown: 50 Great Years and prior to that 40 Years: A Charlie Brown Christmas which signifies the passion he has for the music of Vince Guaraldi, the original composer for Peanuts. This also strengthens his role as Guaraldi’s musical heir. His albums Right Here, Right Now, Fuzzy Logic, Heroes, and Full Circle are Billboard chart toppers that are tributes to his major jazz and pop influences.
