The Best in EDM Music!

92Partying and music festivals in Mumbai has been looking better and better with every passing night. With new clubs, bars and pubs opening all over the city, nightlife has been thriving. The same can be said for DJs and clubs, which seem to be sprouting all over the metropolis we know as Mumbai. With bars and lounges gaining popularity among young individuals in the city, the night time scene in Mumbai has definitely stepped its game up. While the local bars and lounges are all well and good, the music concerts happening in Mumbai are unbelievable. International DJS are flocking to Aamchi Mumbai, owing to the large crowds and the atmosphere of Mumbai. Some big names who have come to Mumbai for concerts include big ticket artists like Armin van Buuren, Hardwell, Dimitri Vegas, Swedish House Mafia, and many more EDM artists.

Another one of Mumbai’s DJS will be seen performing soon, DJ Shiva. Known for his foot tapping Bollywood and Hollywood remixes, the DJ does not stick to the convention when it comes to his brand of music. Effortlessly fusing Hip Hop, mainstream Bollywood, lounge, electro and house music, it makes his repertoire far more versatile than most performing artists. Having worked in the music industry for over a decade, the talented DJ has risen from where he’d begun, 10 years ago.

He’s carved a niche for himself, with his hard work, unrelenting dedication and his unbridled passion for music. He has also been awarded with a bevy of accolades for his work with music. Some of his famous remixes include Aaj Phir, fro Hate Story 2, Yaariyaan, Raghupati Raghav, from Krrish 3 and Dil Tu Hi Bata. He’s already performed at more than a few high profile events, some of which include Trikaya at Pune, Flags at Pune with Perizad, IPL Nights, Party Link and many more.

Now, the talented DJ will be playing at the EDM Night in Mumbai, at the Bombay Exhibition Centre in Goregaon. This will be a night beyond the same old music and dance. This will be the best electro dance music you’ve heard, the ambience of which will take you to the next level. If you’re an electro music lover, then you’re going to love Shiva! He’s going to be belting out hit Bollywood remixes as well as Hollywood remixes, interspersed with his own slight twist on music that we’ve all heard. Add to that some good vibes, and you have a great party on your hands!

The Siegel-Schwall Reunion Concert

91 really enjoyed the clear, cool sounds produced at this 1987 reunion of this Chicago blues band. It was thirteen years since they broke up and it was great to see this reunion. They still had the richness of sound and easy-going style that was steeped in inspiration from some of the greatest blues musicians of the genre. Corky Siegel and Jim Schwall first met in 1964 while members of their college jazz band. When the pair discovered their mutual interest in the blues, they started playing as a duo in local Chicago night clubs like Pepper’s and The Quiet Knight.

Corky was adept at the piano and Jim had developed a distinctive, clear sound on his electrified acoustic guitar. They worked hard to cultivate vocal abilities, and Corky threw himself into the development of one of the all-time greatest harmonica sounds.

At the advice of the clubs’ managers, they expanded to a four piece band with the addition of a drummer and bassist. They switched those positions around until 1969 when Rollo Radford became a regular fixture on the bass. Rollo had experience playing for the famed Dinah Washington and then Martha and the Vandellas. Sam Lay became their regular drummer/vocalist. Sam had a plethora of work experience having played with the Thunderbirds, Willie Dixon, Howlin’ Wolf, Muddy Waters, the Paul Butterfield Blues Band, as well as Bob Dylan. The band produced several more albums and toured the U.S. and Europe before breaking up in 1974.

We are fortunate that the band reunited for the celebration of Chicago’s WXRT’s 15th anniversary. It was recognition that Siegel-Schwall was the first band to receive a live broadcast from the station. We are also lucky that Corky and Jim each have their clear, pure voices – voices that appear to be full of both youth and wisdom. Rollo’s voice is also a vibrant baritone, and Sam’s vocals are reminiscent of the rich, but raspy tone of Louis Armstrong.

Offerings on this CD include: You Don’t Love Me Like That, 4:03, vocal by Jim Schwall; Devil, 5:27, vocal by Corky Siegel; Leavin’, 3:10, Schwall; Hey, Billie Jean, 6:24, Siegel; I Wanna Love Ya, 4:09, Rollo Radford; I Think It Was The Wine, 4:55, Schwall; I Don’t Want You To Be My Girl, 6:55, Siegel; When I’ve Been Drinkin’, 4:14, Schwall; Hush, Hush, 7:22, Siegel; and Got My Mojo Working. 4:30, Sam Lay.

Different Types of Entertainment

90Before we look into different types of entertainment, first let’s define what entertainment is. Entertainment is any kind of activity that provides amusement for people in a passive way, other entertaining activities that involve participating are considered recreation or hobbies.

There are many types of entertainment for particular tastes, for example we have cinema, theatre, sports, games, social dance, concert, comedy shows, animations, impressionists, clowns and the list goes on and on.

These form of entertainment can than be divided into groups according to the age and interest of the people being entertained. For instance we have child , adult , live action , public and corporate entertainment. In this article we’ll give a brief explanation to some of these forms.

Child Entertainment

Kids need to be entertained and some times the entertainer or the entertainment agency needs to find a balance between mental and physical activities. Clowns, puppets, pantomimes and cartoons tend to appeal to children, though adult might find it enjoyable too.

Adult Entertainment

Adult Entertainment many times is related to the sex industry, but this form of entertainment can not be related only with the sex industry and its branches. Adult Entertainment involves things like music concerts, live sports, opera and a hand full of other activities that kids might not find so appealing.

Live Entertainment

This form of entertainment is broadened to all ages as there are a variety of activities that can labelled as live entertainment. For instance music concerts, live TV shows, live sports, theatres and any other activity that you could think of that is aimed to amuse people.

Public Entertainment

Nowadays probably one of the forms of entertainment that have grown the most, thanks to the economic downturn. When you walk around any major city around Europe you will notice a wide range of public entertainers working for any amount of money the public decides to give them. There are public entertainers of all sorts from mimes to Peruvian Flute bands all working with the uncertainty of how much money they will make, that is why they tend to be more common in major cities where there are more tourists.

Corporate Entertainment

Aimed for corporate events, private parties, award ceremonies, product launches and it is better organized by a professional entertainment agency as most of time these events involve hundreds maybe thousands of people and no one better than the professionals to take care of these form of entertainment.

Tips on How to Get To Meet Your Favorite Bands at Concerts

89If you are a music lover, love going to concerts, and you really want to know how to meet a band so you can take some pictures with them, get autographs, or even chat a little bit with them?

Well, you are reading the right article.

You can actually find different ways on how to meet your favorite rock stars. It is absolutely not an impossible thing to do, yet your success rate will depend on how famous the band is, and how smart you do it.

So what you are going to read here is the “traditional” ways you can do to meet a band at a music concert. Basically, you will need more “luck” to make them work. But hey, “luck” is when preparation meets opportunity, right?

You can actually find alternative ways to do this, but we’ll get to that later. I recommend you to read the tips here first, and put them into action:

1. Wait for the Band at the Airport

Before band members and their concert crew arrive, the commonly practiced way on meeting them is to wait at the airport. Frequently, you will be able to welcome them at the airport one day prior to the concert. But in some cases, such as when they have to do some promos, they can also arrive at the airport several days earlier. Therefore, always be informed about their gigs by checking out the official website as well as the band’s Facebook, Twitter, Google Plus, etc for more information.

Often times, band members will be happy to see fans and they would stop for a while to sign stuff or even take some pictures if possible. However, of course they will not be able to stop and chat for too long as they need to get a rest and prepare for the show.

2. Find Where Their Hotel Is

You can do this without acting like a stalker. Stalking is a no-no.

The way to do this is to go to the hotel they are staying at, and wait outside. Many stupid and crazy fans just go inside the hotel and chase their idols, so do not ever do that!

Since it is often a secret concerning the hotel where a band will stay at, you’d better check out the most popular 5-star hotel closest to the concert venue. If you really want to meet them, then go there and wait hours before or after the show. Remember to act normal, instead of acting like a stalker.

3. The Concert Venue

You can meet a band at the airport, hotel, and the concert venue.

Fans usually wait for the band members to come out and sign stuff after the show is over. But remember that more often than not, it takes hours for them to come out and therefore you need to leave the venue very late. What you really need here is patience.

Another tips, to do this is by find out where their tour bus is and wait there. If a security person tells you not to wait because the band is never going to come out, don’t just trust him. Remember that he gets paid for that, so chances are that he is just trying to do his job.
