Celebrating a Star on the Walk of Fame for Jane's Addiction

Dear Friends,

Hollywood is rocking.  Local rock band Jane's Addiction will be honored this Wednesday, October 30th, with a Star on the Walk of Fame! Very appropriately, the Star will be located in front of
the racy Playmates lingerie shop! We are celebrating along, choosing Jane's Addiction to start of the week!




"ahhhhhhh….. the good ol' days : )  As a native Angeleno AND having been in my 20's in the glory days of the 90ies, Jane's Addiction hold a very special place in my heart. I have vivid memories of going to check out the new vibrant "interesting art band" in Hollywood clubs now way long gone, such as the basement that was "Raji's" on Hollywood Boulevard or "The Lhasa Club." Over the years, I must have seen "the Janes" dozens of times, but each time, I can tell you, those boys would not end a show unless they felt a magical occurrence transpired. They gave EVERYTHING they had every time, and for that, I am pleased as punch to see them being honored with a Star in the city they so fervently captured and celebrated! I chose probably their biggest hit "Jane says" and this live video, I believe shot in the early 90ies, because I felt it captures some of the essence of an early live Jane's Addiction show, grainy and as low res as the video may be!" : ) DJ Matt Cornwall

And of course, this week is all about Trick or Treat. Many of our colleagues and friends will attend BizBash's IdeaFest in New York where 2013 Event Style Award winners will be announced on Tuesday and Wednesday. We are happy to be nominated (together with our friend Doug Johnson / Eplus Productions) but alas, cannot get away from work to attend.

Wishing you all a great week.
Janet

Guest Blog with a Euro Twist: Alexander Schottky

Dear Friends,

We just had another chance to work with web-and-graphic-design wiz (and successful actor and voice-over artist) Alexander Schottky who created our current website look. And in case you haven't seen it in a while: it's www.eventworks.com. ⚇

Alex, thank you for taking on our latest project with 24 hours notice and delivering another 12 later! You rock!

Since he does, we asked him what he listens to right now. He suggested a great get-up-and-start-the-week song: "What Does the Fox Say?" by Ylvis. The video started as a joke by two Norwegian brothers whose TV show "The Fox" is a huge hit back in the homeland. The comedy duo produced the song "as a totally stupid pop song" to promote the show. 120 MILLION YouTube hits later, the song has gone viral on a global scale. Venerable Rolling Stone magazine took notice last week!



Alex: "A friend from Norway sent this to me a few weeks ago and I loved it… I am since then wondering, what does the fox say? Anyone? I love funny stuff with unexpected twists and this video just has it all."

If you are in need of graphic or web design, please contact Alex. We are happy to share! :-)

Call him: (818) 451-8194

And let us know: what does the fox say?

Wishing you a great week!

We Ended Last Week With THE FRAY - Live in Concert

Dear Friends!

Just back from South Carolina, we are sending a Thank You shout out to Joe King, Isaac Slade, Dave Welsh and Ben Wysocki, aka The Fray. We had a great time at the Peace Center in Greenville, SC listening to them live on stage.



"It was a great pleasure being the opening act for "The Fray." They sound as good as they did the minute they stepped foot in the spotlight. My favorite song still has to be "Over my head!"
DJ Matt Cornwall

Back home and wishing you all a wonderful week!
