"We just wanted to drop by and say thanks for all the support. My name is Miranda Gold, I am 22 years old and am in the band: Gold Monkey. We are an independent alternative rock-pop act based in Las Vegas Nevada. We are currently working with producer Tom Marolda (The Killers, Imagine Dragons), on an original 13 song album, we have 5 songs released so far.... 

I have the amazing opportunity to work with the best all time vocal coach Jessica Marciel (Capitol Records) for almost two years. She has been a dear friend and a 'guardian angel' to my personal growth as a vocalist. We love your work on your blog, movie page, and radio station and we are thankful for people like you who help expose a band like ours and we look forward to being featured on your show.  Rock on"!!

StreetcredMusic: Vanessa Calderon, In 3'30" DK

I am always wondering out loud on my blog and Facebook, why there are so few, so very, very, few artists today who take on social issues.
So I am absolutely delighted to bring this project to you, and I am equally delighted that it's creators, Vanessa Calderon and Daniel Diosdado have trust in me to bring it to you.
They work with their creativity, compassion and class....

 DeMotion Act is a technique I created in 2011.
"Acting through emotional dance on film....A three Dimensional actor.
The message is very powerful and positive.
We are developing a series of short films about social issues, about women.
Our next short will be about breast cancer and we are looking for sponsors interested in this type of project".
The first short film, is award-winning 3'30" DK selected all over the world.
SYNOPSIS – English
We give too much credit to the fact that someone watches us.
Actress and Choreographer Vanessa Calderon shows the journey that a performer goes through in 3’30” minutes to make the society turn its head in the right direction for a change.
The short film directed by Daniel Diosdado is a sharp and furious critic to hypocrisy and praise to vulnerability; those things that scare us and force us to make many mistakes.
   ..... Short film 3'30" DK  ~~ enjoy the film:: Here is 3'30' DK
....... "Change the world before the world changes you"

.....Thank you Pete for your support and generosity.

StreetcredMusic: This Generation Will Never.....Sinatra Centennial, 2015

This generation will never...
Get to see what mine did, the greatest performers of the day, in small venues. Venues that were designed so that every seat was comfortable with a good view of the stage. Venues where, when you walked in you were treated like a customer, an adult. Venues that did not 'price gouge'. Venues without 100 screaming paid actors standing in front of the stage, shouting throughout the show.

Video:: 1960's Las Vegas video!

Elvis, Sinatra, James Brown, The Stones, Basie, Ellington, Ella, Carole King, Judy Garland,
...The Rat Pack, Sammy Davis Jr, Billie Holiday.....and on and on.

Video::  1950's    New York City

No giant screens were needed, no oversize speakers, you saw the faces of the greatest artists, perhaps of all time.

Sinatra Centennial, is December 2015...more coming here..

StreetcredMusic: 20 Cook Street, TheHiveNYC

I was at 20 Cook Street for this months edition of  Yula &The eXtended Family.
At TheHive the show was great, back to that later..

I always show up early and stay after the events I attend at the space, and that's what I want to tell you about. The operation of the Hive. The work 'behind the scenes'.
I want to take a minute to introduce you to the people who make the Hive the most comfortable, open, all inclusive Arts Space in NYC.

Jason Yellen: writer, poet, creator...
Yula has told me many times, without Jason, there would be no Hive.

Isaac Henry Gardner: musician, actor, lighting, visual artist, creator.

Brendan Schweda: artist, author, actor, creator.

So there you have just a platoon of the Hive's forces, they create....BUT just a minute...
The Hive is a building, that needs care above and beyond creating music, live stage, and all other let me tell you some of the OTHER things this platoon does.
...hang lighting, fix the air conditioner, arrange the stage, rearrange the stage, arrange the stage, rearrange the stage, sweep the floor, take out the trash, shop and pick up what's needed, wash dishes, greet the people, build sets, maintain the web site, get it?!?! ...they are dedicated to the survival of...

The show, it may have been the best XFM show I have seen, (or at least 2d best)
The band looked so comfortable with their music, which was a blend of new and some of Yuli's oldies with new arrangements, like 'Keep me Satisfied' and 'Magicals',. Her tunes are timeless.
....and the little personal JAMMM at the end with Yuli on bass, Shahar Mintz, guitar and Isaac Henry Gardner, drums, doing some of their favorite covers was a blast!!

Here is the XFM'x latest video::: "DOT X"
