Jackson Tyler Hunt in NYC!

How long have we waited for this moment? One of our favorites, Jackson Tyler Hunt, will be performing in NYC this weekend. Catch him while you can! This Missouri native has traveled far and wide to share his love of music and his piano. There's been many comparisons to Billy Joel and Ben Folds, but soon enough, Jackson will be able to make his own road that others will want to learn and be inspired from.

Jackson will be performing at The Shrine in Harlem on May 28th @ 8PM. Let's go!


Almost forgot that I had tickets to go watch James Morrison, a week ago. Who does that? Luckily, someone from my crew remembered it. Calendars are useful...if you use it. As always, James is an amazing performer and much better to watch in person. Brought the house down. But you all know who he is so I'm just going to do a skip and a hop to his opening act, HoneyHoney.

A banjo and a tambourine. Violins and guitars. I wasn't sure what to expect, considering that we were at a pop rock concert. The banjo threw most of my fellow concert goers off.

From the first song on, Honeyhoney gripped the crowd with their words and music whether it was a slow or fast tempo song. They're a modern pop(I use this word loosely) version of bluegrass, country and blues without sacrificing the heart of it. Please thank Suzanne Santo (vocals/banjo/violin) and Ben Jaffe (vocals/guitar) for your entertainment.

"Little Toy Gun" was released in November of 2008 on their first album, First Rodeo. And yes, that is Jack Baur...I mean Kiefer Sutherland, in the video.

This is another favorite. Honeyhoney's songs are very pure and unique from one another. Which is hard to say for many (MANY) musicians/bands. Honeyhoney released "Thin Line", on their second album, Billy Jack, in October 2011.

So, I've been slacking lately. But for good reasons. Like the fact that I was here (rainbow!):

And here:

Dropped by here for a while and was pleasantly surprised by this lovely sight:

And then passed by the Oslo Opera House before calling it a "day":
Now...back to work!
