Tessa's Take

Happy Tuesday! Today I got a special treat! I was able to catch a Turner Harbrough Show :-)He has had a run in with RL that has kept his schedule very light til recently, so I was super excited to make it there today! Wow, tho he is using different equipment, he still sounded awesome! He has 2 CD's out, available for purchase at the shows too! He did some awesome covers ranging from Michael Buble to Carrie Underwood! The show was great, and we were all enjoying his giggling and bubbly personality. If it's been awhile, or if you have not had a chance yet, make it a priority to catch a show soon! Might even see me there :-)Thank you for peeking at Tessa's Take....until next time...Tessa1 Beck

Tessa's Take

Good Morning! It's a steamy Sunday morning here, and I thought I better get my post out early before the computer fried itself lol. Today is a different kind of post, it's a RL one...I went to a concert last night, gulp, in the real world! I went to see Martin Sexton. The band opening for him was Ryan Montbleu....omg they rocked, I liked them so much I even bought the cd! They played some awesome songs, many with amusing lyrics, the lead singer wore this cute hat, it was definitely a fun time. When Martin came out, we were all excited, I had heard his music on the internet and thought he was ok, but man, live....the show was amazing! His voice was crystal clear, the range unbelievable...he even yodeled! We all agreed he should only make live recordings, his studio stuff can't touch the energy or showmanship he had last night. The dance floor was packed, and all I could think was wow, I should get these 2 guys on SL! Never know....Thank you for peeking at Tessa's Take....until next time...Tessa1 Beck

Wow, this week has been hectic in RL.....you all know I hate missing a blog post, and I have missed several this week. Please forgive me, my RL took a turn for the insanely busy! I thought I would touch on a few things, first being the Chicago Jam this weekend! Tons of SL musicians and fans will be pouring into Chicago to meet, have fun and make awesome music! I will send the link to see the live shows as soon as I get it :-) next, I thought I would mention a few people from past blogs who are worth a second look. Turner Harbrough, he has had a run of rough luck in RL and is working hard to get back into the swing of things here in SL, he has a new CD available for purchase and a voice to die for! Phemie Alcott...a recent return to the SL live music scene and hitting it hard, catch a show soon! Mercury Madzuko...catch a show, he did TAU the other night and rocked it big time! TwinGhost Ronas will delight and entertain you no doubt about it! There are so many more, but for now, one last entry, Harrison Digfoot, he battles with stream issues, however he is an awesome listen and a great performer, so check him out! hugs!!!Thank you for peeking at Tessa's Take....until next time...Tessa1 Beck

Good Morning and Happy Monday! I hope this week rocks! Last night I had the pleasure of catching SweetLilly Pinelli at Kasbah. She has a very, well...sweet voice that can melt any heart. Her style of singing is soft and at times she is almost whispering, giving a very sexy spin to her vocals. She sang some great songs and nailed the requested Jewel song! I say next time you are looking for a show, check out SweetLilly, you're gonna love it :-)Thank you for peeking at Tessa's Take....until next time...Tessa1 Beck

It's the weekend finally!!! Late last night my friend Yummi Burrito (great name huh) and I went to Pannie's to hear TallGuy Kidd. It was really fun! He has these songs that just cracked me up lol, my favorite was Do You Yahoo.....a really comical spoof of internet romance. He had many songs that just made you giggle, all with superb low key delivery. We enjoyed the entire show, both the funny and the just plain pretty songs. I highly suggest you find a show soon, and I mean soon, he is taking July and August off for some R&R. Let me know what ya think!Thank you for peeking at Tessa's Take....until next time...Tessa1 Beck

Wow! Today I heard some great music! Beamer Lowtide was playing, and gosh was he great! He played a lot of love songs, and some awesome originals. he even played some originals of other SL musicians. He did a little of everything, his sound was right on and the show was enjoyable! This was my first time hearing Beamer play solo, I have heard him play sets with Lighthouse Mixmaster before, also a great musician. I really had a great time, he was great with the crowd and we had a blast! So what are you waiting for, check him out :-)Thank you for peeking at Tessa's Take....until next time...Tessa1 Beck

Happy Hump Day! I was a bit put off after Monday's blog, so I took a day of rest. Today, i went to The Kasbah, where 7 hours of live music was underway. I heard an amazing set by Max Kleene, another by Phemie Alcott and then Harrison Digfoot! Each show was great! Up now is Stratus Mactavish. He has an awesome voice and a really calm manner, makes for a great listen. 10PM will bring Ed Kyomoon, followed by JordanReyne Deezul and to close out the night, Loreen Aldrin! What an awesome lineup!!! So, if ur still on and want some fun, hitch a ride to the Kasbah!!! Thank you for peeking at Tessa's Take....until next time...Tessa1 Beck

Tessa's Take!

Hello Everyone! Monday is here, the start of another awesome week of sun and fun and live music! I have been very busy today, checking out music.....bookings etc. There are so many people I can write about everyday, however, I only write about one a day. I was going to blog about a great musician returning to the music scene. The thing is, his show isn't until 11:00PM SL time.....so, I thought...hmmm what to do. His FB page had a sample of his music...I was impressed. I decided to give you the information so you can check him out yourself. His name is Elisha Wulluf and he will be playing The Beach in world. If you are around tonight, come check it out, say hi to Solana the awesome owner and drop me a line, let me know what you think! Thank's for peeking at Tessa's Take....until next time...Tessa1 Beck

Sadly, he did not make the gig....watch tomorrow for more live music.

It's a lazy Sunday afternoon and I was getting a little shopping in when I was sent to scout a new musician. His name is TwinGhost Ronas and OMG was I glad I went! The guy was great, smooth voice, great guitar skills, definitely an easy listen. He did some awesome covers of old favorites and and even some current ones. I really enjoyed the show and I recommend you find a show asap! Look out for me there, he's a definite repeat listen :-)Thank you for peeking at Tessa's Take....until next time...Tessa1 Beck

Hello Everyone, and Happy Friday!!! For the past 2 weeks I have been trying to catch a Marky Helstein show. I somehow kept missing him. This morning I happened to get a late notice that he was playing Guthries. I threw on a dress and took the ride. Marky hails from Scotland and his accent is lovely. He did some great covers, my favorite was Hey There Delilah. He cracked us up with his mid song giggles, a nice added touch. I also got to hear an original, very nice tune that really showcased his gentle voice. I would say you should definitely make it a point to see Marky, and soon!

Good Evening Everyone!I hope this lovely Thursday has been kind to you. I have had a busy day, so I needed to unwind. Now, what do I do to unwind.......Live music of course! I checked events and found that JimStewart Rain was playing at Stars of Unicorn, Musicians Universe. I grabbed my friend Max and hopped over for a listen. The first thing I noticed was the great sound quality, great mix...then the vocals began. Jim has a cool style, kind of that country sound...but worked great with other genres too! He did some awesome well known covers and a few originals too. I really enjoyed the set and look forward to catching another soon. Next time you are in search, look up JimStewart Rain....well worth your time, and maybe I will see you there! Thank you for peeking at Tessa's Take....until next time...Tessa1 Beck

Happy Hump Day! What better way to enjoy the middle of the week than to come to Nantucket for the debut of Mandoaa Dragonash! He started off strong with a great cover, then followed it with his own brand of witty banter. I always enjoy Mandoaa's shows, but it's been awhile since I last heard him and wow! his sound is even better and his originals were awesome!He has this great kind of gritty voice that gives soul to his songs. Let's hope he finds the time to handle more shows! Keep an eye out if you are looking for a fun time and a great listen! Maybe you will even catch him again at Nantucket!

It's Tuesday and that meant a TAU day! We had a great lineup this week! First up was Phoenix Gerhadsen. She had some technical issues at first but when she finally got rolling she was awesome! She did some great songs, check her out asap! Next up was Automatic Quandry. He has been to TAU before and it's always a great listen. He rocked us with some awesome originals tonight! Wooot I suggest finding a show of his soon. Following Automatic was Paulette Oldrich. She took over the stream smoothly and provided us with some cool tunes, her deep voice and fun style made for a nice 15 minutes! OnlyHalfCrazy Gumbo took the stage next. I had heard her, oh gosh over a year ago and wow she has really improved! her final song, Somewhere Over The Rainbow was awesome! the TAU stage was next graced by MommaLuv Skytower. She was really cool, with her innovative approach and beautiful voice. I think my next show search will include catching a full set of MommaLuv's. Last but not least we had ApeFace Mefusula. He was all decked out in a cool costume with lights shooting from his guitar. He put on a killer 15 minutes, really working the crowd up! When it was over everyone kind of just stood around...waiting....it was cool! Thanks everyone for the awesome turnout, hope to see ya all again soon!Thank you for peeking at Tessa's Take....until next time...Tessa1 Beck

Happy Monday! I caught a few shows today, but the highlight was Raspbury Rearwin's set at Club Caritas! it was his birthday and it was awesome to be there to celebrate with him! He did a great set, some of my favorite songs done the special Raspy way! We all had a great time singing along, chatting and listening to Rasps fun monologue. I love Rasps shows, no matter what he will entertain you, music, humor, it's all good, so get on out there and catch a Raspbury Rearwin show!

It's Friday!!! I logged on early to catch some shows and I am so glad I did. I stopped by Guthries, the place for early shows to be sure, and caught Kellee Blaylock's set. I have heard Kellee before, but he sounded so different today! He was relaxed, and fun, his songs were great, even did Paper Moon! I have always been a fan, but today was like hearing him for the first time. If it's been awhile for you, catch a set, it's worth the time :-) Thanks for peeking at Tessa's Take....until next time...Tessa1 Beck

It's Hump Day! Many of us enjoy this day, knowing it brings us that much closer to the weekend. I spent a lot of time today working on making my SL the best it could be. Part of that was catching a few SL shows. I was sent a TP to hear Angelica Svenska. The first thing I noticed was how friendly she is, the second, how entertaining. The set was filled with songs I really didn't know, but, I think it's good to expand your horizons. I enjoyed hearing the new music and found Angelica to be very engaging. I encourage everyone to branch out, listen to someone or something new at least once a week, at the very least, it will remind you why you like the things you do :-)Thanks for peeking at Tessa's Take....until next time...Tessa1 Beck

Happy Tuesday People! Today was an afternoon TAU day! We had an awesome lineup so let's just dive right in! First up was Adrienne Deezul, an incredible musician from New Zealand currently living in Germany. Adrienne has a very dark style, with awesome power in her voice. She does mainly originals but has been known to belt out a cover or two as well. Her 15 minutes were gritty and hot! Thanks Adrienne! Next up we had Gabryel Nyoki. If you have not heard him yet, get out there and find a show now! His gorgeous voice and excellent musical ability filled the air. Everyone was thrilled with his performance and sad to see his 15 minutes end. Last not but least was ColeMarie Soleil. Her hauntingly beautiful voice and equally beautiful song choices caught the audience off guard. Her unique style and obvious talent made for a perfect end to another great TAU day.
