GET TO KNOW LANEY LYNX

POP ARTIST: LANEY LYNX

Music for each individual is a very unique and different experience. Everyone has an artist that stands out above the rest. If I had a category for best female artist my vote would go to Laney Lynx.

Her unique style is not defined by one genre of music. Her sound tends to sway towards pop but it has an electric and soulful sound as well. Her music draws you in, makes you want to dance and sing along. Her newest single lovesick takes you through a journey of what it feels like when we have those butterflies in our stomach for the first time meeting that special someone.

My favorite song “Perfectly Flawed” reminds us all that there is no perfect person we all are flawed in one way or another but it is those flaws that make us unique and different. Those flaws help us to stand out.

THE NEXT KING OF SWING

Swing Artist: Sal Andolina

Who hasn’t had that late Friday night yearning to close up your exam studying or slide your glasses off your nose and rub your eyes…all while thinking, “I need to clear my head”?

If you’re fortunate enough to live in any big city, one of the places you end up finding yourself at is a good jazz bar, right?!  You know the place.  The feeling of belonging as you mingle with others around you because only that ‘certain type’ of person is going to go hang for Jazz, but WOW, when the sax starts flowing, and the bass starts rolling, and your feet start tapping; that’s when you know that tonight this music is going to go down smooth and that History exam you have next week?  What exam?  Forget about it.  I need some Sal Andolina right now, not more boring western civilization theory!

Over at Conquer Entertainment, we’ve got everything from Hip Hop to cool Pop, from eclectic rock to Country stock.  But boy, do we also got dat Jazz.

And no one represents it better than Sal.  What’s he all about?  Really, are you kidding?

For virtuoso clarinetist Sal Andolina, the famous Benny Goodman wasn’t just the original King of Swing, he was also his personal acquaintance!  They first met about 20 years ago before Benny passed, but the encounter provided special inspiration for young Sal.  What propelled him to be the next King of Swing was getting to actually work and be coached by Benny Goodman himself.  As Andolina recalled,

“That’s the amazing thing to have a legend – a man who was the king of an era and a musical style, who did so much for the clarinet – sitting so close, hearing and watching every note I played.”

“Afterwards, Benny came up to me and told me, and with a big smile on his face, said that he loved the sound he heard…just the way they used to play in his day.”  Andolina continued, “I asked him if he ever coached other clarinet players?  Before you know it, I was at his house the next day for hours and hours…he knows everything about music.”

These coaching sessions propelled Conquer Jazz star Sal Andolina to a career as a bass clarinetist and saxophonist with the Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra, as well as countless Jazz concerts across the globe.  He has even been called to perform with the original Goodman band!

If you’re feeling the need for some sax and bass thumping in the smoky little Jazz bar over on 5th and Vine, why not get on over or else follow this link and pick up some of Sal’s music from his own Conquer site?  The toe tapping begins here:

GET TO KNOW: LED ZEPPELIN EXPERIENCE

Rock Cover Show: Led Zeppelin Experience

The best Led Zeppelin tribute on the planet

-Dennis D’Amico, executive producer (Paul McCartney)

Band Summary:

The Led Zeppelin Experience is basically a tribute to the great British Super Live Group from the ancient times of late 1968 unto the thundering power of the 1973 and over.  The sound, appearance, mannerism, equipment, and performance will absolutely convince the most diehard supporter of the Led Zeppelin band to believe that they’re really watching the original band performing live.

About The Band:

Led Zeppelin Experience authentically brings back the legend British Super Live Group Band reminiscing the good old days when the “Hammer of the Gods” hit America and went viral globally.

The appearance, trait, performance, as well as native English accents are appropriately organized to give you that magical feel and great night of musical experience.  John Paul Jones, a member of the Led Zeppelin Band, said this when signing an autograph, “this is pretty scary” laying emphasis on the resemblance and similarity of every character in the pictures.  This exceptional and revolutionary band originates from Seattle, WA.

All around America and beyond, the group has been delivering warm and exhilarating performances to fans of Led Zeppelin, bringing back the memories of the 1968 Madison Square Garden performance.  The group has performed together with Molly Hatchet, Nazareth, Peter Frampton, Kansas, Foreigner, Eric Burden, The Animals, Jefferson Starship, and many others.

The group has close to 1 million international supporters and still growing.  Other rock stars like them and many fans of the Led Zeppelin group have publicly testified they were actually watching the original British Super Live Group.

Band Bio:

The Led Zeppelin group has been awesome in living up to standard.  As soon as the lighting faints the appearance, sounds, and feeling takes their supporters back to Madison Square Garden where the group had their first performance in 1968.  The equipment, stage, outfits, traits, and accents will surely convince any supporter that thinks it’s impossible.

The group consists of four characters with full equipment.  Prepared to take a smooth drive or flight to any concert reliant to the location and will journey to any destination both within the country and beyond.

The band encourages all forms of promotions and is entirely keen to do live interviews or audio [radio] interviews and live performances on radio to promote any occasion if required.  Our managerial crew will assist in any means to assure a successful event.

In over 30-60 different locations, we have put in place radio spots as well as music for DJ voice overs.  We bring fans together and encourage contests, gatherings, client-sponsorships, etc.  It’s the job of our managerial crew to cover every single part of the concert with promoters to assure a nice and successful occasion.

CONQUER ARTIST GETS CALL FROM HOLLYWOOD

Classical Songwriter: Sarah Jane Cion

Sarah Jane Cion gets the call.

When Director Alan Taylor needed a powerful music score to full the scenes of the latest Marvel Comics movie, Thor – The Dark World, he turned to none other than, Conquer Entertainment’s own Sarah Jane Cion.

Regarded as one of the top pianist in the nation, Sarah unique skill set was at the top of the list when it came to reaching out to someone with the talent and experience necessary for such a critical piece of the movie’s production.

Often times, the soundtrack can make or break a movie and in this case, she did not let Hollywood down. With record breaking audiences, it is no wonder she is such a respected and valuable talent within the industry.  And, Conquer Entertainment is especially proud that she has chosen us as one of the platforms to showcase her music.

She has performed with many well-known artists including Clark Terry, Etta Jones, Anita O’ Day, Carmen Leggio and James McBride.  Her music has appeared on All My Children in the Pine Valley Inn scenes.  She performed “Golden Song” in the movie ‘Thor: The Dark World‘.  She has toured all over the world to places like Israel, Portugal, Japan, Germany, Austria and England.  She is also a writer and goes under the pen name “Sally Shields”.  What a talent!

Conquer continues to attract the brightest and most successful stars in the music industry.

In the classical music genre, no one plays the piano like Sarah Jane Cion.  Enjoy her gift at http://www.getconquer.com/sarahjanecion/

DUELING PIANO BARS – A PART OF THE SHOW

 

So what exactly is Dueling Piano? Well I’m sure you’ve seen those awesome scenes in movies; two people sitting at separate pianos, jamming away at the keys to see who can play better and faster. As far back as the 1890’s, ragtime piano players would literally duel in front of a crow to prove themselves the better pianist.

In 1933 the first official Dueling Piano bar was opened in New Orleans, Pat O’Brien’s Bar, still open today! From there the Dueling Piano became an actual show where two piano players take turns singing songs requested by the audience, by writing them down on napkins.

 

 

Today Dueling Pianos are a fun, high energy show with emphasis on audience participation; performing songs across all genres. A show really unlike any other!

Conquer Artist Missy Lynn is an insanely talented musician who performs each week at dueling Piano Bar “Keys On Main” in Salt Lake City, Utah.

 

 

At Keys on Main, we entertain with a live, all request dueling piano show. No set lists, no rehearsal, just 2 performers & 2 pianos   taking what the audience requests. With each request the audience can decide what they would like to tip the performers and the highest tipping songs get played first. If there is a song that a table or members of the audience do not like, they can stop that song by outbidding its original tip by one dollar. This is the true nature of the “dueling” the audience competing to get their songs played first.

Dueling Piano Bars provide a unique and more interactive form of entertainment than music joints these days, and with more than 200 around the country, there is lots of opportunity to check it out. So next time you and the buddies need something to do. . . Well you know what to look out for!
