About

Listening to the music I love in the city I love.

My name is Blake and I love listening to music, old and new.  The music discovery process is very exciting to me and I thought I’d share some classics and current favorites with you by posting a song of the day and a few playlists.  What you should ultimately know about me is that I love going to concerts and seeing artists play in their authentic environment.  It’s an ultimate testament to their sound, stage presence, personality, and character.  Every audience takes note when an artist makes an effort to know something about the city they’re playing in; I have an appreciation for artists (or manager’s) who do their homework.  My all time favorite artist to see live is Charles Bradley.  He knows how to get a show going and how to connect with his audience.

    Hello. Tonight at Dukes Bohemian Grove Bar there is a hip hop showcase starting at 9pm. The act of the night that I’m most excited about it Mad Dukez. He’s energetic and his music is crowd moving… he will be releasing a new album shortly and we would love to have you out to cover his performance. Would you be interested in doing so? Please let me know. Thank you so much.
