Palazzo artists:-))))

Edward Kyomoon:

Edward has been performing in Second Life since November of 2007.  Starting at the age of 16 he began performing live for audiences, going on to play guitar and keyboards in several local rock bands in the early 90's.  In Real Life he works in the studio as a recording engineer so he knows what it takes to produce a sound that rocks!  .... including many of the backing tracks he uses for his live performances.
Edward gives you high energy rock music and love songs, performing live on either acoustic or electric guitar.  From high energy guitar solos and soaring vocals to acoustic ballads and love songs that make the girls swoon, he is sure to please any audience he draws.  
Ranging from the 60's to the present, his sets cover bands and artists such as: The Doors, Pink Floyd, Blue October, Snow Patrol, Coldplay and Nine Inch Nails. His experiences in Second Life inspire him to compose new music, thus giving his sets some of his original music as well as covers.

Chad Scheuta:
Musician, Guitarist, and Multi-instrumentalist for over 35 years, Chad brings out Gentle Emotions in his songs. He wants to have fun and he wants YOU to have fun.  His soft gentle voice will make your heart skip a beat.

Hedy Patrucci:
Love singing Blues, Motown, Jazz, Country, Gospel and other genres.

And another amazing artist to come: Thumper Boucher

I feel I have known Thumper Boucher all my SL, and somehow that is true. In a former life I used to have my own stage and Thumper did 2 shows on it. Then I lost track of him untill a couple of weeks ago Dani took me to one of his shows.
He is still the man I remember, great voice, great instrumentalist and a great entertainer with loads of special effects.
Therefor I invited him to perform at Palazzo Celestiale, I think everyone I know must see this man perform. I have not set a date with him yet but it will be very soon:-))
Thumper, luv ya man!!!

Palazzo Celestiale and his artists:-)

I've been singing unprofessionally for 9 years around the internet.  Longer than that in person.  I've performed at live karaoke functions in Florida.  I used to help run a couple of them.   Singing in SL is my #1 passion.  Some of my influences are Toby Kieth, Brand Paisley, Rodney Adkins And Trace Adkins to name a few.  If you want to book me for your venue, barring any prior bookings, I'll be availabe anytime after 11:00 A. M.  as I work until then, Monday through Friday.   I will also sing for weddings and special events, including charity benefits that are sanctioned by SL, (whereas SL recognizes the charity and won't charge exchange rates.)  You can bring up my profile URL and see my calendar of my bookings and times.  Contact myself or my manager WhispersOfTheWind1960 Resident, TY for looking at my biography and I hope to see you soon.

Lefty Unplugged:
UK based acoustic singer/songwriter over 30yrs experience.
My writing covers many genres, I have a catalogue of over 80 original songs, and though I prefer to play originals I also cover many songs from the 50's to the present day.

Lou Mannock:
Time and again, returns an artist who audaciously captures the hearts and minds of listeners with undeniably hook-driven songs that feel familiar, yet are unlike anything you’ve ever heard.  
Whether it's rock or love ballads you like, you'll find Lou Mannock's vocals deliver a raw and powerful combination of songs with complete emotional sincerity and with equal despair, as he covers songs from the 60's, 70's, 80's, 90's and today as well as his own original music. Come and hear Lou Mannock sing live. He is a veteran performer making his presence known throughout the grid since 2006!

Mapoo Little:
Mapoo Little first started singing at the tender age of two years old.  A British girl, aged 25, Mapoo has always had a passion for singing and believes that music can heal peoples pain.  Singing is the ultimate expression of how she is feeling inside.
Mapoo has been told that she sounds a lot like Anastacia and Tina Turner, and other stars but different people have different views and Mapoo is no pretender or emulator, any similarities are flattering but coincidental.  Mapoo Little performs a lot of Variety Music, from Pop to Soul, Dance to Jazz and also some Oldies - But wait till you hear her sing Motown, the lady is a diva!

Mike Nelson:
A professional musician in RL I bring my own brand of keep em on their feet rock and roll to SL, put your dancing shoes on and join the party.

Chardonnay loves it as much as me, just telling how bad SL can get, I still have that good spirit here, i just love SL:-)

HBO "When Strangers Click" with documentary maker Robert Kenner and Bara...

I have found this film on another blog today. On my blog I mostly write about the artists I see perform on Second Life so this film has put a smile on my face, also I think it's a good thing for the actual Live artists to read and watch.
Avatar Bara Johnson started to sing in Second Live, and at one point he just recorded a whole album in New York. Well maybe just watch the movie and you will know what im blabbing about:-) (you will need to take your time because the movie is almost 40 minutes but it's worth it, trust me)

Jon Gourdou summonds the legends of country, folk, rock and blues with his tender voice and accoustic guitar. 
Come be swept away, in the depth of his soul and the light of his remorseless beauty......

Mike Nelson:
A professional musician in RL I bring my own brand of keep em on their feet rock and roll to SL, put your dancing shoes on and join the party.

Some of the artists I had the privilege to host at Palazzo Celestiale:-))))

JayP Burnstein:
Although I taught myself to play the guitar, I was able to acquire enough skill to be a sologuitarist in several bands for years.  Even though I was in these bands my heart has always been with singing. A few years ago i started singing online on some other programs on the web. My name there was *Jay* and one day a good friend brought me to Second Life. I am a very all-around singer from Engelbert Humperdinck to Elvis, Vince Gill to Michael Bubble and many many more.

Hi my name is Steve Heyden im 58. Ive been playing guitar since i was 12 and learned to read music at 45 
My goal is to supply SL venue owners with some quailty music and give people enjoyment .

Jon Bazar:
Jon Bazar is a show not to be missed, with over 300 songs worth of material from great acts such as Cat Stevens, Pink Floyd, REM, U2 and many more, he is a great musician and has a great tone to his voice!
Jon Bazar, The Acoustic Experience you won't want to miss!

Hellig Melson
Hellig has been performing in SL for some time now and has been wowing audiences with the variety of genre that he is able to put across and the feeling he manages to invoke in his performances. Hellig has a musical background spanning the last 5 decades.  Growing up in a musical family Hellig began playing piano at the age of 5 and has become an accomplished musician playing keyboards, bass guitar and drums along the way. Early years brought a wide range of influences from swing/country/jazz to pop & rock through the 60s/70s/80s and beyond, all of which show through in the shows that he performs in SL.
Based in the UK, Hellig was  recently found performing at the Abbey Road on the River Festival 2009 in Louisville, Kentucky with “Wingsbanned” and prior to that performing at major venues around the UK as the musical director with “ElvisTonight”. Having “retired” from touring Hellig is now moving in a different direction here on SL by taking on vocals to compliment his keyboard skills which come to the fore in his “unplugged” shows.
Hellig lives for his music in all its genres and hopes you will enjoy the variety within the shows he performs which are representative of the musical influences in his life.

Sunrise Rhapsody
Sunrise Rhapsody  will captivate you from the first note with her soft voice. She has been singing all her life and plays both piano and guitar. Her voice is of the Norah Jones/ Eva Cassidy style, soft sensuous and beautiful....with the ability to have the listener feel the emotion of the song through her interpretation.

Tricky Digfoot Band
Tricky is from Michigan and had started in second life to join his wife ( Jazmine Luckstone ) and found that he could express more of his musical telents. Tricky bought his first sax at the age of 13 even thuo he had the love for the bass, and has love for music every since.

Katie Melua - If The Lights Go Out

Ok, just one more*winks.
I have put this video on here because the whole setup reminds me a little of Second Life:-)

Katie Melua - A Happy Place

Katie... she is awesome, this song does make me very happy. If I could I would publish all her songs on here but well that is not really what the blog is for:-)

Bruno Mars - Grenade [Official Music Video]

Bruno Mars... who could not like him!!!!
I have put this song on here for someone... if he ever reads this blog he will know who he is.
Sad stuff happens in RL and in SL, all we can do is move on:-)

Sam Sparro - Black & Gold (Lyric)

Sam Sparro is one of my favourates. His 'black and gold' is so very sofisticated and full of sensuality. I like to think I have some of that sensuality in me;-)

Faithless - God Is A DJ (Live - High Quality)

I don't believe in God, but if  I would he should be DJ.
Music has always been some kind of drug to me, when I'm happy, when I'm sad, I do need this drug:-)

Look everybody has to earn there own money, SL is no different from RL concerning this. I usually don't use the full names of the people to quote a conversation but this just makes me angry.
There are some ways to get SL money: work for it like I do as a host or you can just buy Lindens with your creditcard on the homepage.

The piano....

My SL daughter is very musical and very talented. She plays the violin in the Real World, but we both sat down and played the piano in Second Life.
While we sat down and played this music together I felt really close to her, very close. We not only played music but we had some great talks that night too.
Nara is so my daughter in SL, it's almost unbelievable how we connect in this world:-))

Many relationships in Second Live are doomed, I speak out of experience... but that mostly happens between adults.
My relationship with Nara, being a mother to her and she being a daughter to me will never be doomed, on the contrary, our relationship is a blessing from heaven:-)

I am not a big fan of classical music but I do have one or two favourate compositions. One of them is this: Für Elise by Beethoven.
I should change the name if Beethoven would approve into: Für Nara:-)))
I love you my sweet daughter:-)
