The dance company takes a revolutionary approach to the art of belly dance, presenting theatrical dance shows with a storyline, much like a ballet. The show features a cast of 20 international artists from diverse backgrounds in Middle Eastern dance and music, break dance, theatrical hip hop, contemporary, tribal and fusion dance, each bringing their own unique vision to the production.

With the success of its residency program, Bellydance Evolution has established ensemble company members in the U.S., Europe, Asia and Latin America.

Bellydance Evolution’s “Alice in Wonderland” takes you on a magical journey filled with spinning mushrooms, dancing caterpillars and a charismatically acrobatic rabbit all set to an original and theatrical soundtrack. Based on Alice’s Adventures In Wonderland, by Lewis Carroll, the performance is appropriate for all ages.

Saycon Sengbloh

Something a little different this morning and straight off the summer Broadway musical “Holler If Ya Year Me” Saycon Sengbloh, released her hot new single  ŒEverything just days ago.

ŒEverything is a an up-tempo hearty rock tome  that screams retro glam with its”Vintage Pop Soul.”  The song comes roaring out of the gate as she wails with the music not unlike James Brown alongside an explosion of guitars, bass, and drums.

Most recently, the Atlanta native starred in the high-energy Broadway musical Holler If Ya Hear Me, Sengbloh enthused New York Times to say that her performance shimmers, that she is strong-voiced, and is vibrant.  She also was showcased in Tony award nominatedMotown the Musical and originated the role of Sandra Iszadore in the hottest and only Afro-beat award winning musical Fela! on Broadway produced by Jay-Z, Will Smith, and Jada Pinkett-Smith along with Steve and Ruth Hendel.

The single is available via SoundCloud, iTunes, and CDBaby.

Crash, Boom, Bang! The Bayonetes Release Debut LP in Los Angeles July 24th

fr79_bayonetssummer2014promo3sml

 

THE BAYONETS ANNOUNCE ALBUM RELEASE PARTY IN LOS ANGELES, CELEBRATING THEIR DEBUT LP, CRASH BOOM BANG! (ROBO RECORDS)

When this arrived in the email box, I had to let out a giggle.  Having been one of the original Little Steven’s (Van Zandt) International Gargage Band Festival Go Go Girls it was a no brainer that this music was making it to Gia On The Move.  Steven has always had great taste a sense of humor and drive when it comes to presenting music.

The Bayonets are throwing a party to thank their fans for such a spectacular year on July 24th at No Vacancy in Hollywood, California.
The party is from 8-10pm and is open to the public, FREE, on a first come, first served basis. There is only enough space for 150 people to watch the set and  no opening act, so the music will start at 8pm sharp. Doors open at 7:30. They will play a 30 minute set featuring brand new songs, followed by Q&A with one of LA’s longest serving beloved DJ’s.
In the bands’ words:
The reason we do this, the reason this endeavor works at all is because of the power of good independent listeners like you, with the help of brave DJ’s and radio programmers everywhere who are willing to spin something new in hopes of giving and getting that fix we all want:
Some good rock music with a little bit of spice and a whole lotta fun.”
.
Although they will not be charging admission at the door, they will be accepting donations to a charity they support, called Adopt The Arts which puts real musical instruments into the eager hands of students from inner city schools in Los Angeles. You can help these kids achieve the thrill that only comes from making music with their friends at school.
fr79_bayonetssummer2014promo4smlThe Bayonets recently released the title track and single with accompanying video from their debut album Crash Boom Bang!. Little Steven’s Underground Garage premiered the tune, singling it out as a “coolest song in the world” track.
The album will be The Bayonets’ first full-length release, following previous successes with their first three singles, which all reached the Top 10 on the Classic Rock Mediabase radio chart.
The Bayonets’ guitarist and lead vocalist Brian Ray is known worldwide for his musical contributions to the Paul McCartney Band, who continue on a massive arena & stadium tour this summer. “I’ve been a very lucky man to work alongside Paul McCartney for 12 years now.  Suffice it to say, this perch on which I find myself working with Paul – as well as his generosity of spirit – gives me the space, time, and wherewithal to indulge my wildest sonic dream life in my spare time,“ Brian reflected, “pulling these musical ideas out of the clear blue sky with my friends, so that we can hopefully move people and rock out with them with reckless abandon. For me, rock and roll needs to stay dangerous and fun. I wanted that sense of adventure and camaraderie, and I found it with my good friend and songwriting partner, Oliver Leiber.”
Drummer Oliver Leiber is well known for playing guitar and recording songs for some of the biggest artists in the business, including Rod Stewart, among many others. Speaking of the band, Oliver said, “it grew organically out of a very simple desire on Brian’s and my part to do a musical project that wasn’t trying to be anything. We simply wanted to write songs without judging if they were ‘hits’ or if they would fit into a certain musical radio format. We wanted to write songs that were reflective of who we are as men and artists at this point in our lives. Most of all, we really just wanted to have some fun and rock out! The Bayonets grew out of a desire to get back in touch with the days when I just played music for music’s sake.”
Crash Boom Bang! was mixed by Joe Zook (Katy Perry, OneRepublic, Pink, Faith Hill and others).  The accompanying video was directed by Linda Cevallos-French & Brian French.
The Bayonets are: Brian Ray (of The Paul McCartney Band, Etta James, etc.) – guitar/vocals; Oliver Leiber (Rod Stewart, Aretha Franklin, etc.) – drums; Lucrecia López Sanz (of Argentina’s Nube 9) – guitar/vocals
“We are thrilled to be a part of such a great rock record,” says Robo Records president Rob Christie. “The new single sets the tone for the rest of the album. It has a vintage feel with infectious hooks that will stay with you a lifetime.”
The album will be released summer of 2014 by Robo Records and distributed by Universal Music Distribution.

The Girls Are Here: Beautiful Small Machines

Beautiful Small Machines

The new single from NYC electro-twang duo, Beautiful Small Machines, “The Girls Are Here” is the perfect jam for the summer weather! 

Pop Matters states the single, “brings one classic group to mind immediately from the outset: The Beach Boys.”   We’re thinking 80’s pop girl group, “The Go Go’s.”

Either way, “The Girls Are Here” is the second track released from the upcoming full-length album, The DJ Stayed Home, out July 8, 2014, the band’s Arcade-Fire-meets-Blondie sound and moves away from the more pop-infused vibe of the duo’s debut. Complete with a folky cover of “Paper Planes” (video below) originally by M.I.A., this record’s twists and turns are anything but ordinary. 

Beautiful Small Machines was formed in 2009 by Bree Sharp and Don DiLego in New York City. Sharp is the lead vocalist and lyricist and DiLego is the producer. He also plays almost all of the instruments on record, including electric guitar, bass, piano, drums, harmonica, cowbell and other nifty things he finds lying around. They both play acoustic guitar and share songwriting.

Pete Escovedo: Latin Jazz Magic and Music at the Hollywood & Highland Summer Concert Kick-Off

Pete-Esovedo-

Of all of the places I could have chosen, behind the scene was the most magical.

Pete-Escoved-frntby Tracey Paleo, Gia On The Move

.

Watching 79 year old Jazz legend Pete Escovedo backstage, only a few feet away, was like riding the fiery tail of a shooting star, surging through the heavens.  The crowd was wild for him and his music.  The love was mutual.

Hollywood & Highland kicked off its FREE kjazz 88.1 FM Sponsored, Summer Jazz Concert series last night under the open air sky with a special appearance by headliner, Pete Escovedo and the Latin Jazz Orchestra to several hundreds of casual mall shoppers and sojourners bent on their final destination at the 2nd floor courtyard.

What revelry!  Attendees were treated to abundant seating, (although plenty were dancing in the aisles) with, for an additional $10, a sumptuous menu by Wolfgang Puck Catering paired with fines wines by Stella Rosa.

On the 3rd Floor balcony VIP Press Lounge, guests were treated to an insatiable variety of delectable nibbles (mini red peppers stuffed with crab salad were my favorite!) and a high end view of the entire crowd and stage.  Other restaurant venues on the upper floors stayed open and also offered a feast of  food and sound for diners as well as patrons making last minute purchases before stepping out to hear the concert. All were welcome.

Exciting all around, the orchestra ended on a high note with a cover of Pharrell Williams’, “Happy” — and boy were we!  Music, dancing, drinking, eating — the night was sheer perfection.

The concert series which will continue every Tuesday evening throughout the month of July hopes to attract music and wine enthusiasts alike.  The proceeds from the wine bar will directly benefit Project Angel Food (www.angelfood.org), a non-profit organization, whose mission is to deliver free and nutritious meals to men, women and children affected by HIV/AIDS and other serious illness.

It is FREE.  So no excuses!  Get yourself out to the Hollywood & Highland Mall for the remaining dates, which will finalize on July 29th with the incredible Poncho Sanchez.

When:     Every Tuesday in July – 7:00pm to 9:00pm
Where:   Hollywood & Highland , 6800 Hollywood Blvd, Los Angeles, C 90028
Who:      Wine & Jazz Series 2014 Line Up
