As you are planning your wedding, you are no doubt having discussions on what exactly will happen pre-ceremony, during the ceremony, after the ceremony, etc....  You might be talking about typical U.S. traditions.  It may be regional traditions, or heck, you might even have some family traditions that you want to continue on.  There's a lot [...]

As John Mellencamp said….”Play Guitar”

Maybe you have heard the song from John Mellencamp, "Play Guitar".  Well, to be fair, when it was released, he was John Cougar.  But the title of the song didn't change.  The song is great.  It speaks to rock n' roll.  It speaks to everyone who has ever thought about, wanted, or dreamed of playing guitar. [...]

Baby, It’s Cold Outside

Well, it might have been freezing outside (it usually is at the beginning of January here in Iowa), however inside it was nice and warm.  I had the pleasure of entertaining at the Bennet/Ferring wedding at the beginning of January in the historic Paramount Theater, in downtown Cedar Rapids. Let's just say the Paramount staff [...]

Last Christmas – A Wham! cover

Christmas is quickly approaching, and it's pretty normal to hear Christmas songs on just about any station.  Yes, you can find a station that plays nothing but Christmas music, and with Spotify and Pandora, you can always get your fix of Christmas music.  Matter of fact, one of my DJ's from many years back would [...]

Making your Music Request List

Whether you are months away from your reception or just a week away from the date, one of the large items that often gets overlooked till the last minute is making your list of songs for the reception.  There are many ways of doing this, but ultimately, it comes down to this...."Where do we start?"  [...]

Prince ….

I have struggled to write down my thoughts on this artist since his passing.  I still can't believe it.  Prince was one of those iconic artists that embodied music.  He lived it, breathed it, and you could see it in him when he played.  I remember dancing to his music when I was in college, and [...]

Glenn Frey 1948-2016

A sad day indeed as the music industry and those that love listening to the wonderful voice of Glenn Frey mourns the loss of a great artist.  I can remember growing up and listening to the Eagles, and my father playing me every Eagles song there was.  It was one of the first tapes and subsequently [...]

These Girls Rock!

I love music.  Period.  All DJ's do.  All kinds of music, Rock, Pop, Blues, Country, Jazz, Urban, Hard Rock, Rap, etc...I listen to it all.  Music is a universal language that everyone can get into.  I listen to so much music that I am always looking for something that makes me go "Wow!".  That was great.  [...]

Merry Christmas

So, we have been busy over the last 18 months with all sorts of gigs, and as such, we have been rather lazy in posting.  Our bad.  However, one of my favorite independent artists recently posted a Christmas song/video, and it's great!  so, I thought I would share.  These guys are having a ball playing music, [...]
