NHTE podcast logoAs I was listening to the first draft of the podcast episode this week, I had a moment.  It wasn’t so much one specific thing that singer/songwriter Sena Ehrhardt said, so much as it was the insights she gave and the success she’s having.

Dare I say, Episode 61 is the model of what I strive for “Now Hear This Entertainment” to be.

Do You Have Staying Power blogAs baseball spring training winds down, the use of the phrase “staying power” is only getting started.  Analysts wonder how long into a game a starting pitcher can last.  They speculate on whether he has what it takes to throw complete games and be a consistent performer over a full season.

No Answer is the Wrong AnswerI joked over the weekend that someone who is a “low talker” should text or email me in all CAPS so I can hear them.  It’s commonly known that doing such implies that you’re shouting.

I feel like this week’s blog should be in all CAPS so that people will hear me – this time.

Workin the Room blogI’m amazed at the number of performers – especially singer/songwriters – that just want to sit on a stool on stage and do their show from a seated position.  Some of them go so far as to have their own that they travel with so they always have the same seat when they’re performing.

If it was a piano bench, that would be one thing.

Flexibility equals More Work imageThis weekend I went to see a band play at a fairly well-known venue in Tampa.  The place calls itself a jazz club, but, ironically, had (and wanted) this band playing danceable songs.  And yes, people were dancing.  Fast dancing, slow dancing, and mid-tempo songs that still moved the patrons to get out on the dance floor, just like the owner wants.

NHTE podcast logoToday in the United States, Presidents Day is being celebrated.  A couple of the proverbial founding fathers are remembered for what they did as well as some things that they said.  Profound statements from past presidents have found their way into history books for generations to learn from.

Muscle Shoals documentaryLast night the Grammys were given out, as shown on CBS.  In today’s reports about the winners, losers, and performances there will likely be a mention about the ratings.  And my question to those who aspire to one day be a nominee is, were you watching?  If not, what was the reason?

Katy PerryIt would be interesting to see how many impressions Tom Brady’s name gets today after having been the MVP of the Super Bowl yesterday.  (I just gave you another one, #12.  You’re welcome.)  Equally fascinating, though, would be how many occurrences of ‘Katy Perry’ there are in light of her having been the halftime feature of the Patriots-Seahawks game.
