Tessa's Take

Happy Weekend Everyone! I was searching the grid for some good music tonight when I caught Rara Destiny's name listed for Key West. I realized I had not heard her in awhile, so I hopped over just in time to catch the end of Warm Whispers, one of my fave songs. Rara has a very sultry voice and she knows how to choose the right songs to showcase that. Nothing proved that point more than her final song, Summertime, done sans guitar. I was blown away by her soulful rendition. If you have by some odd chance not heard her yet, or if you just need a good listen, check her out, definitely one of SL's best female performers!

Tessa's Take

Hey Happy Tuesday! I just wanted to take a moment and mention a few up and coming SL artists! Dee Timeless, a really talented guitarist and vocalist. She is worth a look, her style is eclectic, request Classical Gas, you won't be sorry! Next up, Guitar Zane, I heard him the other night and WOW what a great hour it was! He is acoustic with a soulful voice and fun personality, take a peek, you'll be glad you did :-) How about Porter Paquot, she has been around a bit, but each time I hear her she is even better! The other night I got the opportunity to catch her show, and what fun she is...she will entertain you not only with her strong vocals but also her adorable personality! I will be spending the rest of the week searching out new artists to tell you about, so check back soon!Thank you for peeking at Tessa's Take....until next time...Tessa1 Beck

Tessa's Take

Hi! The Kasbah celebrated it's one year anniversay this evening with a huge party! The lineup was awesome! Starting the night off was Strum Diesel, a really great member of the Kasbah family. His set rocked, as usual, the crowd gathering throughout his performance. Following Strum was SweetLilly Pinelli. If you have not heard Sweet yet, you should, her name perfectly suits her musical style and voice. She gave us a lovely hour of entertainment. She passed the stage over to Phemie Alcott at the top of the hour. Phemie shared her beautiful voice and cool originals with us. Her final song on piano was enough to melt anyones heart. Up next was Rara Destiny, the very first performer to take the Kasbah stage one year ago! She led us through the hour with her sexy, soulful voice and adorable personality. Harper Messmer was waiting in the wings as Rara finished up her final song. Harper, also a longtime regular here at The Kasbah, was true to form, singing in his relaxed style. His gentle tone and easy manner were a pleasing addition to the evenings festivities. At 9pm Maximillion Kleene began his set. Max, one of Kasbah's favorite players, gave us some beautiful music before inviting Harper and Raspbury Rearwin to join him on stage. The three talented musicians entertained us with their adorbale banter and incredible musical abilities. The sim was packed, everyone who is anyone was here for the triple stream! Their renditions of "Chasing Cars" and "Haleluja" were enough to make you fall in love. When the triple stream ended, Raspbury continued for the rest of his hour. Rasp, a regular at the Kasbah was in rare form, still on a high from the triple stream. LizAday Solo, another member of the Kasbah family, finished off the night with her strong vocals and sparkling personality. The night was sponspored by Scruplz Magazine and free t-shirts and party packs were given out to all! Thank you for peeking at Tessa's Take....until next time...Tessa1 Beck

Tessa's Take

Wow, yesterday was a TAU day and I spent most of the hours leading up to, and even during the auditions, scrambling for replacement artists. Why you might ask, well there were a few cancellations, but also, SL was being a bear. Several of the scheduled performers couldn't even log in! The first performer, Lexie Luan, arrived late due to that very issue, but she more than made up for it with her sultry voice and awesome originals! The second performer, Richie Whitesong took the stage and with his lovely accent and soft voice led us through the next 15 minutes sweetly. Pandora Breadbin kindly agreed to fill in for us and sang some really wonderful covers mixed with her fun personality. Pandora was followed by Jimmyt49 Dukes hitting the stage with force! His 15 minutes rocked the audience beautifully. Andie Aurotharius was last on the scheduled list and came out strong with her rendition of a Rihanna song. She did an awesome job entertaining us, but when her 15 minutes were up, some members of the audience were still needing more music. One of the guests, Dakila Lacava, very generously agreed to do a few songs to wrap things up. He was awesome and everyone agreed it was a great ending to a good but hectic TAU.Thank you for peeking at Tessa's Take....until next time...Tessa1 Beck

Hi Everyone! Happy Monday! I got the opportunity to witness a great dual stream this evening. Beamer Lowtide and Gabryel Nyoki came together on the Crystal stage. Gabryel was playing electric guitar while Beamer did vocals, guitar and even some awesome tracks. The songs were incredible, the crowd was great and Gab and Beamie rocked the place! Each does a killer individual set, and I highly recommend catching a show soon, but if you hear buzz that they are going to dual again, get yourself there fast! You won't be sorry :-)Thank you for peeking at Tessa's Take....until next time...Tessa1 Beck

OK, I know what you are going to say, twice in one day??? This is just a teaser, there is a new musician hitting SL very soon. he has a sweet, sweet voice and an equally sweet disposition. His name is Coop Dembo. I caught him at My Wish doing an impromptu set. He is still perfecting his sound and working on his sets, so keep an eye out, shouldn't be too long before he takes SL by storm!Thank you for peeking at Tessa's Take....until next time...Tessa1 Beck

Hey, have you heard Moses Rae? I just did, at Guthries, and what a pleasure it was :-) If you like folk music, then you will love Moses. His voice was clear and pure and the song selection was fun! Sometimes when I go to a show this early (6:00 am) I wait to blog til I am fully awake...but today, I was energized by the music and wonderful atmosphere. Guthries is just a nice place, ya know, welcoming and friendly. So if you are looking for something to do in the early or even normal hours of the morning, check out Guthries, and don't forget to look for Moses Rae the next time you hit search :-)Thank you for peeking at Tessa's Take....until next time...Tessa1 Beck

Happy Thursday! I was lucky enough to catch a LizAday Solo concert this evening. She was playing the Kasbah and she was awesome! Her first song, Riders on the Storm was one of my all time favorites! She has really grown since last time I saw her! The set list rocked, her sound was great and the crowd was really feeling her vibe! I know that sounds kitchy, but, seriously she had some cool tracks and she really made the most of her vocal abilities. The set was stellar, so check her out, you won't be sorry!

Hi Guys! It's late Sunday night and I am beat! I have been to so many awesome shows today, it was hard to pick one to blog about lol. I was lucky enough to be at Fashion Fest while ReallyMad Morpork was playing. He did an awesome job, his rendition of, The Blowers Daughter, was brilliant! During his set, just one tiny hour, the AllStars team raised over 130,000 Lindens! It was an amazing experience as 2 very generous people donated huge amounts, spurring others to donate as well! We were all crying, and the musician, ReallyMad...well, he was so touched and inspired, it was a beautiful thing!There really are no words to describe the emotions we felt... Fashion Fest was a huge success, raising over 3million lindens for RFL! Special thanks to everyone involved, those who donated lindens, time, talents and hearts! Until there is a cure..we RELAY!!!Thank you for peeking at Tessa's Take....until next time...Tessa1 Beck

It's the weekend and time for some live music! I volunteered for RFL yesterday and hosted Eliz Watanabe's set at Fashion Fest.

She was followed by Noma Falta, another awesome musician volunteering her time and energy! Thanks to all the people who helped make this years Fashion Fest a success!

Hi and Happy Hump Day! I have been really busy this past week, sorry about that. Yesterday was an Audio Union day. We had an afternoon lineup, so let's get right into it! Phoenix Gerhadsen opened for us with some beautiful sweet songs. Phoenix has been to TAU before and did a great job entertaining us! Next up was Rage Citron. Wow does this guy have an act! Think Manson, but with heart....I think everyone was stunned, the original music was great and I hope you get a chance to catch him for some darker style fun. SL was acting up and our next performer, Gabryel Nyoki was unable to log in, however, true to form, Gab didn't disappoint. We plugged in his stream and he rocked us out with both the piano and guitar! It was awesome! When he was done, Dee Heslop took the stage to finish off the awesome set. She was great, giving us some really awesome acoustic work and some great vocals too! A huge thanks to all the performers and to the venue owners and booking agents that make TAU so great!

Good Evening! SL was a strange place today, lots of crashing and other odd happenings, so I was only able to catch one show. Tonight at 9pm, Max Kleene took the stage at Kasbah. The show rocked from start to finish with Max pulling out some old favorites and some awesome new ones as well. Vincent was the newest song for Max and he did an awesome job of it! So...if you have not been to a Max Kleene show, or, it's been awhile, look him up, it's time well spent!Thank you for peeking at Tessa's Take....until next time...Tessa1 Beck
