Piano, Push, Play!
i love this idea. it brings classical music performance to the masses. to the people that won’t turn to the classical music radio station (or playlist) because “what do i listen to that’ll be any good?” i hear from my many friends auditioning for Opera houses and for Orchestras that they rarely even catch the opportunity to audition. not only because of all of the potential people out there and those holding spots, but because there are less and less groups available; the money is no longer there because the younger generations don’t help fund classical and art music. as a side effect, only the wealthy can even afford to see live art music and the divide continues…
a project like this will reopen the doors and expose more people to the beautiful and intricate nature of art music, and hopefully, bring up a new generation of musicians that aren’t afraid to be technically sound in their pop music performances as well.

i’m not a fan of Eli for various reasons, but Peyton sure knows how to lift up his little bro.

wish it could have been found as a b-side! cool version.
Looks interesting! Andre certainly sounds like the interviews I have heard of Jimi. How was ‘Get On Up?’
i really liked how they told the story and the acting was great! the make up on Boseman was just perfect and his mannerisms were just spot on. they even got actors with just the right look for the Stones in their brief moment. i hadn’t seen any of the trailers, only billboards, before seeing it so a lot of that was a surprise to me how accurate the lead would be. (even more so coz i was watching some live video of Mr. Brown only a couple of weeks ago.) also, he must have a goal to play some of the most influential black Americans… i didn’t know that Boseman also played Jackie Robinson in “42”!
anyway, i recommend it! check it.
this is incredible on like 50o levels
the power of music or the power of Lorde.
then the end when they responded to the Pep band tune…
like i was with “Get On Up”, i can’t wait to see this film. Andre Benjamin seems to have nailed this role.
How did this guitarist do it?! He managed to capture every wail, scream, and uncontrollable sob. We can’t even imagine how long he must have spent watching the sorrowful Nonomura cry in front of the cameras in order to memorize every sound down to a sniffle. Although this video is absolutely cool and really impressive, we don’t envy this guitarist. We had a hard time watching the cringeworthy footage the first time; we can’t even image what watching it dozens of times does to a person.
i’m certain i’ve never laughed so hard at someone’s crying. and that tux…
whilst rehearsing for our Orange County (CA) Fair gig, we decided to record a little for ourselves. some of the tunes sounded good enough to share so you get a chance to hear!
