Since the launch of Mix To Go Magazine in 2008, booking DJs and artists has been an uphill battle. Many of the companies that claim to have access to some of the artists they represent tend to hike their prices, falsify information about their lists and/or represent in an unprofessional manner.
Amplified Talent Bookings (originally "State Of The ARTist Bookings") has been in business since the summer of 2010. This August they celebrate 3 years of representing top DJs, recording artists and celebrities.
The firm recently re-launched their WEBSITE and feature a high end selection known as their "hot list." In addition to the biggest names in entertainment, Amplified Talent Bookings also represent local, independent artists. Contact them directly at AmplifiedTalent@gmail.com or (347) 450-4AMP
When we post videos it is a big deal...because we haven't been since the year began!
If you remember our older website we were always posting videos. A sign we weren't doing enough events and spending too much time online. Now we struggle to maintain our website's current standings because we ARE doing 3-4 parties and/or shows every week!
What does any of this have to do with this post? Everything. This song and video version of it are great. It came as a surprise because the version #djfreedomlives plays is his own version along with the original and Armando's version (you'll just have to come to the parties to hear it for yourself).
Speaking of which, you see our weeklies POSTED HERE but you can hear THIS remix at Sutra on Fridays at Sutra (see our EVENT PAGE) and if not, then just send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. If you are NOT in NYC then tell us where you are and we'll tell you how songs and videos like this can be part of your life. :D
Until soon, #partyresponsibly
JENNIFER HUDSON performed with the SANDY HOOK CHORUS and it was fantastic. We don't post about sports but this performance was phenomenal. Some of our team had these comments:
"Love it made me cry through out the whole time. Knowing those same kids were crying for there lives a few months back and the fact that Jennifer lost half her family to a gun man but yet they can join forces and perform!" - Majestic Style
"I am from Connecticut .Seeing this made me so choked up on how strong these amazing children are. All of us here in this state are still grieving about this tragedy but for me this performance helped me allot in healing. If these kids can bring them self to perform in front of millions and be that strong and resilient to the evil that took place that day , well then we all in America can learn from them . Love you New Town , thanks and remain strong." - Oryan B.
Some in the media had terrible things to say about the performance after it took place-a few inappropriate comments-but this performance stood high on our list of great moments. Of course, We enjoyed Beyonce's half time show and the "National Anthem" sung by Alicia Keys (wow, 3 great black performances in one Super Bowl showing...amazing!)...but Jennifer gave this show the introduction that set the tone for what was otherwise a great night in sports.
"I can't believe anyone would criticize this is any way. Good Grief! Who cares if some of the vocals are taped. What a wonderful experience for the children and all of us! We are bouncing back from a heinous tragedy, one of many. I hope the NRA saw this. May such a grievous tragedy never happen again. I taught for for 21 year children just like that. I had a Elementary Chorus just like that...my heart goes out to the families who suffered the loss of a child and the people close to them who continue to heal from this terrible experience..." - D Pierce
We couldn't agree more D. Thanks to those of you who submitted comments and although we didn't post them all we welcome you to do so below on our site! You can also use the tag #communitysq when posting about this to us on Twitter: @mixtogo.
