#nowplaying Beres Hammond- I Feel Good
Beres Hammond and Inner Circle will be performing in Boston tomorrow night! If you’re a fan of lover’s rock and aren’t familiar with Beres, definitely look into him. ‘I Feel Good’ is one of my favorite tracks. Followed by: Tempted To Touch, She Loves Me Now, Warriors Don’t Cry, Rock Away.
And most def. looking forward to hearing Inner Circle’s classic, ‘Sweat’, live. 1992! I vividly remember my brother, daycare friend and I cruising in my babysitter’s car, during the summer time, listening to this track. Her hand in a waving motion out the window, moving to the beat of this track. Such a nostalgic tune!
Last night I caught Think Forward Media’s artist showcase at the Hard Rock Cafe. First off, the venue was real nice. Cavern Club, which is sectioned off for live performances, had great lighting and sound. The stage was perfect in the sense that it was not too high off the audience’s level, so the room for performers to connect with the audience was greater (which definitely happened).
David Correy was the headlining act. Joy Daniels, Lance Hayes and Shantel’s acts previous to DC’s were amazing. I’d say the most stimulating part of the night was the presence of live bands supporting the main acts. I’m a huge geek when it comes to live shows. Good times.
On DC: The moment that comes to mind when thinking about David Correy is from about 4-5 years back. DC, his also Berklee-going boy, Darrin Love (A name hard to top!), and my homegirls were all hanging one summer evening: talking music, cracking jokes, sipping magical juice. In the good vibes of the night, DC and D-Love performed a song, No More Crying. The combo of DC’s voice with D-Love’s acoustic talent, echoing in the hallway of the apartment building, was mesmerizing. DC’s grind, grind, grind mindset from back then is still as prominent today, despite his big achievements from then to now. Your energy was raw and live last night! Good seeing you, www.davidcorrey.com
On Think Forward Media: I’ve had the pleasure of working with Marquis Short and Terrence Lomax of PM-live (Progress Magazine). They, along with their squad, are pushing the presence of music, whether through recognition, introducing fresh talent and/or up to date music news in Boston and globally. Looking forward to the launch of the new site! pm-live.com / thinkforwardmedia.com
Note: The venue would have been even more packed if the Nas/Jr.Gong show didn’t fall on the same night!
