2010 Jamaica Jazz and Blues Festival
27 October 2009 | By admin in Events
The 2010 Jamaica Jazz & Blues Festival will be held Jan. 24-30 in Montego Bay, and feature top talent, including Jennifer Hudson and Maxi Priest. Others performing will be Mr. Billy Ocean; Hall and Oates; Third World; Mr. Monty Alexander; soul sensations Tamia, Deborah Cox and Kelly Price; a Jazz band from Poland; and dance hall reggae artiste, Ms. Marion Hall, popularly known as ‘Lady Saw’.

Mr. Walter Elmore of Turnkey Productions there explained that there will be performances at different hotels in and around Montego Bay. Some of the performers during this time will include Mr. John Secada, Mr. Priest, Mr. Roy Ayers, Mr. Joe Roy Jackson, Mr. Robin Banks and Mr. Richie Stephens. “We will bring the artiste to each venue where the audience is staying, so that way we create a hype and excitement in Montego Bay for the week,” said Mr. Elmore. “We will give our visitors one whole week of entertainment.” During the days, there will be events to accommodate cruise ship passengers.

The official airline sponsor, Air Jamaica, has been linked with Jamaica Jazz and Blues from its inception in 1996. Area Sales Manager, Ms. Norma Sale, looks at the festival as enlarging visitors enjoyment of the islands. “Our visitors yearn for experiences, as it is no longer just going someplace for a couple of days for the sun and beach. They need entertainment also. What the Jazz and Blues Festival has been able to deliver is one more compelling reason for our friends to visit the island,” she said.

Make your plans to enjoy our Jazz Festival and experience Jamaica. Stop by our Coldwell Banker office to discuss real estate opportunities while you are here.

Stay tuned for more details as Kerri and I get them in!

Hall and Oates has my vote!
Posted by Rach on October 20, 2009 | 381 Comments

Did you know Hall and Oates, one of the biggest pop rock duos in history has not yet been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame??? I was surprised myself when they told me that recently on a taping of the Rachael Ray show. That’s why I want you to leave me a comment here and this will act as our petition to get these guys into the Hall of Fame. We’ll gather all of your kind words, and send this off to show just how much we support these guys.

So tell me why you love Hall and Oates and why you think they should join the likes of other excellent rockers. You can leave comments or even just your name if you don’t have much time. It all counts!

Diane Birch on the next Live From Daryl's House

For 24th episode of acclaimed web show, Birch and Hall will team up on songs from her debut Album, Bible Belt

NEW YORK, Oct. 12, 2009—Singer/songwriter Diane Birch’s passion for American music, which includes everything from the delta blues to Motown, California surf music, Top 40 pop and south Philly soul, mirrors the same eclectic influences that inspired Daryl Hall, so it seemed a natural pairing to put the two together for the 24th and latest installment of Live From Daryl’s House, available starting on Oct. 15 at www.lfdh.com.

Birch’s S-Curve Records debut, Bible Belt, was written entirely by Diane and recorded in New York and New Orleans, with Grammy-winning producers Steve Greenberg, soul legend Betty Wright and Michael Mangini at the helm.

Birch was born in Michigan, but moved to Zimbabwe with her South African-born parents, who were missionaries; migrating to South Africa and then Australia before returning to Portland, Oregon when she was a teenager. An extraordinarily accomplished keyboardist, whether on piano, Rhodes, Wurlitzer or Farfisa, Diane has been compared to fellow singer-songwriters Laura Nyro and Carole King, as well as Elton John and Jerry Lee Lewis. Rolling Stone calls her “Amy Winehouse-style retro pop, minus dysfunction…Her welterweight voice is strong and fetching.” The Huffington Post’s David Wild said: “I’ve just heard the future of singer-songwriters and her name is Diane Birch. Bible Belt is more than welcoming… it’s downright thrilling.”

“Diane has one of the best new female voices I’ve heard in quite a while,” said Daryl about the latest new artist to appear on Live From Daryl’s House. “She’s also a very evocative songwriter and kills on the Wurlitzer. We really had a blast.”

Diane and Daryl tackle a seven-song set that includes a pair of fairly deep Daryl Hall and John Oates album tracks in “Life’s Too Short,” from the 2003 album Do It For Love, while “Fall in Philadelphia” originally from the 1972 Atlantic debut, Whole Oates, and now available remastered on the 74 song box set DO WHAT YOU WANT BE WHAT YOU ARE, THE MUSIC OF DARYL HALL & JOHN OATES (RCA/LEGACY), which streets on October 13th . The two also perform four songs from Bible Belt, including “Fire Escape,” “Fools,” “Nothin’ But a Miracle” and “Don’t Wait Up.” Birch shows off her vocal range on her and Daryl’s soulful cover of Aretha Franklin’s “Daydreamin’.”

”I had to keep pinching myself, especially when Daryl started singing ‘Fire Escape,’” Diane enthuses about the experience. “It was a seriously surreal day and his whole crew could not have been cooler!”

Past episodes of Live from Daryl’s House have featured a mix of well-known performers like Smokey Robinson, The Doors’ Robby Krieger and Ray Manzarek, Nick Lowe, K.T. Tunstall, Todd Rundgren, Gym Class Heroes’ Travis McCoy, Finger Eleven’s James Black and Rick Jackett and the Bacon Brothers, along with newcomers such as Philly soul singer Mutlu, Canadian techno-rockers Chromeo, MySpace pop-rock phenom Eric Hutchinson, Cash Money rocker Kevin Rudolf, Wind-up Records’ Chicago rockers Company of Thieves, Bay Area singer/songwriter Matt Nathanson, Charlottesville, VA’s rising Parachute and Chicago rock band Plain White T’s.

Live from Daryl’s House started with Daryl’s “light-bulb moment” idea of “playing music with my friends and putting it up on the Internet,” and the show has subsequently been praised by such varied media outlets as Rolling Stone, Spin, Daily Variety, CNN, BBC, Yahoo and the influential Lefsetz Letter.

Recording artist, private pilot John Oates to perform at AOPA Summit

http://www.aopa.org/summit/news/2009/091008concert.html?WT.adv=adv2

By Julie Summers Walker

Recording artist John Oates, a private pilot, will present a live concert at AOPA Aviation Summit, which takes place Nov. 5 through 7 in Tampa, Fla. Oates started flying in 1985. “I was always intrigued by flying,” the singer says. Touring as the band Hall and Oates, Oates often sat in the jumpseat of the charter aircraft the band flew and he says, “stuck my nose in the cockpit and asked questions.”

His first flight training was in a friend’s Cessna 172. “I flew left seat and at the end of the flight I said, ‘sign me up.’” He eventually soloed in 10 hours and acquired a Piper Dakota. Later he purchased a Beechcraft A36 Bonanza, which he used to fly to concerts along with an instructor.

Currently Oates lives in Colorado and although he and partner Daryl Hall still tour (Hall has a King Air 200), Oates is no longer flying. “I married a farmer’s daughter and we have a rescue farm. I miss the flying but not the responsibility—I was always a conscientious pilot.”

Because of his love of flight and in support of AOPA’s GA Serves America campaign, Oates will perform his new concert tour, 1000 Miles of Life, at a limited seating concert Friday, Nov. 6 at the Tampa Convention Center. As a special bonus, Oates will include an unique twist to his concert—“1000 Miles of Flight”—for his AOPA audience members. Hall and Oates recently released its new four-pack CDs and continue to tour and entertain audiences 20 years after their initial success.

For audience members who purchase a full ticket package, a special after-concert appearance of John Oates is included in the $85 ticket price—this includes private entrance to the Florida Aquarium, transportation from the aquarium to the convention center, Riverside buffet dinner, and the John Oates concert with complimentary John Oates 1000 Miles of Life CD.

Blaine Larson, one of country music’s hottest young and rising stars, with a hit single at No. 3 on the charts, will be the opening act for John Oates. Larson also is a passionate pilot and an AOPA member. He has produced continuous hits since the start of his career and has co-written songs with such music greats as country hall of fame legend George Straits.

Sign up for the concert today!
