Saturday

StreetcredMusic: Natalie Gelman, "Some People" are so poor, all they have is money.

This week the Sun and the Moon got together. A rare event.
Natalie Gelman and Me got together too, just as rare.
When I'm in NYC, she is in California, when she is in NYC, I'm in Vegas.
I finally got to see her live at The Hootenanny House, In Illinois
It was an acoustic house concert, part of her cross country tour.
It was a wonderful evening. Her music is from her heart and her experiences.
And it all comes through with love. 
********************************************
Her new album will be completed in a few weeks.
I put together some video from my phone at the show, please enjoy.

Friday

StreetcredMusic: I Have A Great New Venue, If You Are Coming Through Chicago!

A new venue I discovered, thanks to Songstress, Natalie Gelman
     ...In Geneva, Illinois. Just west of Chicago, north of Elgin.
       ...It's called Hootenanny House

The reason I'm so interested in getting artists in here is two fold.
1. They are nonprofit, and very nice people, and just getting started on a mission generated by music and love.
2. They do amazing work with kids!! (need I say more?)

                           *************************************************
They have four rooms if you will, available. A large 'living room' like BIG for a house concert.
...that's Natalie getting set up, that's about 1/3 of the house concert area.

They also have a beautiful outdoor spot.

...and an area that holds MANY, with a stage.

...and also a very intimate setting for many of you songstresses, I know you will love.

So please if you are coming west, contact me if you need any questions answered..
                         ***************************************************
The Director is, John Connolly email: info@hootenannyhouse.org
The area of Geneva is awesome, shops, restaurants, some other music venues too. A great town to just stroll around in.

I will be contacting some of you, to help put them on our music map!!
Thanks:: Pete Carma

Sunday

StreetcredMusic; Artists, if you don't speak out, what is your art form?

Now more than ever, we need good passion and energy in the arts, with something to say, and with a little volatility.

You take the stage, not being paid for your work. With the opportunity to raise the consciousness of people, how can you give up that privilege, by saying nothing.

Indie Artist have power.
